Conquering Obstacles through Life Coaching

Coaching is one of the greatest resources available to help you unlock your highest potential and live your life to the fullest.

If you are in the midst of a difficult season or are challenged by moving forward from your past or current circumstances, perhaps working with a life coach is the answer.

life coaching signs

What is a life coach?

A Coaching Relationship is designed to empower you with the focus, training and accountability you need to achieve the consistent results you desire in the most important areas of your life. Coaching will equip you with the tools necessary to help you accomplish all that you were meant to do. Just as a personal fitness trainer will help you raise your standards for accelerated results when it comes to your body, so a coach will guide and support you in attaining your desired results in your life.

Through accountability, encouragement, powerful questions, and coaching, a trained coach can help you fulfill your highest calling.

Who should work with a coach?

Any person (men women, teenager) who is looking to enhance his/her life in any area, including (but not limited to):

  • Business
  • Marriage
  • Career
  • Decision making
  • Parenting
  • School challenges
  • Achieving your dreams
  • Goal setting
  • Relationships
  • Leadership
  • Purpose & Passion

If you are interested in life or business coaching sessions, contact Janine Monize at 973.723.02921 or email
