Ep 108 Ten Reasons Why You Should Hire a Life Coach

January 4, 2019

Life coaching is such a new industry, but I think it is one of the most critically important new industries to arise in our culture.  Because it is still a new industry, there are many questions around it.  I looked it up in general - why should someone work with a coach (I know why I think so, but I wanted to see what is the word on the street).  There was an excellent article listing ten reasons to work with a life coach.  This article was not directed specifically to widows, but astonishingly every single one of the ten points listed apply to widows.  Not one of the reasons you should hire a life coach.  Not a couple of the reasons.  ALL the reasons.  Listen in and see if you agree.  I feel working with a life coach for a new perspective on your life is critical for everyone in our world.  email:  Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com  Website:  https://joannthelifecoach.com  Membership site:  https://widowcoachingcenter.com .

Ep 104 Widows Judging and Being Judged

November 23, 2018

Widows are judged by society, judged by family, judged by friends, judged by themselves, and even judged by other widows.  Sometimes it seems a competition among widows for who is the saddest or who has the most heart-breaking story to tell.  Let's raise each other up!  Time to change the discourse!  You can reach me at Joann@joannthelifecoach.com  or  https://Joannthelifecoach.com  


Ep 103 Widowed Holidays

November 16, 2018

Are you dreading the holidays without your spouse?  As widows, the holidays can be a very difficult and depressing time of year.  Do you wonder how you will get through the holidays with this sadness?  Remember that Thanksgiving is a day. Christmas is a day. Hanukkah extends for 8 days, but for most it is most celebrated on the first day.  We tend to experience the most dread and sadness in anticipation of what those days are going to be like, rather than the actual day.  In this episode, let's explore what really works to handle the holiday period better.  website:  https://Joannthelifecoach.com  email:  Joann@Joannthelifecoach.com
