Hello! I am Coach Babette. Welcome to my blog. I am glad you have joined us. You have probably arrived here with a bit of curiosity and interest. If, after reading my post, you have a question or two, leave me a reply and I will answer you. That way, we can all learn together. Fair enough? Isn’t that what life is truly about anyway? Working together? We are not alone on this Earth, so let’s work together to help you achieve true happiness in your life. Let’s get started!
Who is Coach Babette? Well, that’s me! I am truly grateful that you are spending time with me today. I grew up in North Carolina, but I was born in West Virginia many decades ago – remember the rule – you never ask a lady her age! I am a passionate woman who has faced a lot of adversity and success over her lifetime. I have always had a strong desire to help people. I know that this is what I am meant to do for friends, family, co-workers, etc. I didn’t realize it, though, until I had one of those good old V8 moments earlier this year. Do you know what I mean? You see, sometimes your true passion is right in front of you, but it takes someone else to spell it out for you. Well, that is exactly what happened to me. A friend had to spell it out for me s-l-o-w-l-y. This friend, Joy Bing Fleming who I met through Facebook, said that I needed to use my talent for helping others on a professional level. This conversation started my official pursuit as a coach. I have been coaching for over four years under a “different title.” You see, my entire life I have been the “go-to gal,” which I will talk about later in greater detail. I need you to know that when you come to my blog you are going to get truth, the real rubber-meets-the-road kind of truth. Sometimes, it will be great and lovely truth that will make you think and feel good about yourself. Other times, you will read truth that isn’t so pretty; things that were tough and hard to deal with starting at the beginning of my life; things that others ask me how I ever got through it and how I continued to find the courage, determination, inspiration, and drive to keep going. I am not a quitter; I am not one who walks away when the going gets tough, and I am not one that says she is going to be there for you and then is nowhere to be found when you need her the most. Has it always been easy? Are you kidding me!?! Ha-ha, not even close! Have there been days when I didn’t want to get up in the morning and face my daily schedule of activities and responsibilities? You bet there have, but so what? I am human, and I am far from perfect. I am still here, though, and I am using the things I have learned to encourage and inspire others all over the world. Some would say I am “real” to a fault. Don’t get me wrong, I am a private person, but if there are experiences from my own life that I can use to help others, then how dare I be selfish with such information? I want to help you work through those hurdles and trials, gain perspective, and have you take a serious look at yourself in the mirror and say, “This is what I am dealing with, and this is how I will solve it – not run away, not brush it under the rug, not deny that it occurred, but deal with it, solve it and live a full, productive and happy life.” That’s a hard thing to do! Yes, it is! Remember, a diamond doesn’t shine without the pressure of the world to refine it to its utmost purpose – one of brilliance! You are a diamond and you deserve to shine! Our time on this earth is short. We need to cherish each and every moment we are given and live it to the fullest. I am here to help you discover your personal best, find what happiness is in your life, and make it a great day!
I look forward to walking beside you on this journey called life.
Give Me Your Best & We’ll Work Together on the Rest,
