…without your guidance I may not have ever found the time or desire to get a Master’s…

Yesterday I graduated with a Master of Engineering degree from the University of Virginia. As I listened to the commencement speakers, there was a theme that kept coming up of how we couldn’t have done it alone. The support we received has allowed us to enroll and succeed in this Master’s program. I thought of you and your coaching in the way you helped me to turn thoughts into actions. I know that without your guidance I may not have ever found the time or desire to get a Master’s and I am very sure that if I did enroll I wouldn’t have graduated this quickly. Now that I have learned so much and completed my degree I am excited to spend more time with friends and family. I feel well prepared in my professional life for any doors that open for me in the future. I wanted to send you a note to say thank you. Thank you for your patience, guidance, wisdom, and practicality. I hope you are doing well, and thank you again.

I came to Marcia at a time in my life when my role as caregiver became overwhelming.  My husband’s Alzheimer’s Disease was advancing.  Marcia’s coaching gave me support, connection with a helpful community, and encouraged my own self-care.

I always wanted to live a balanced life and I feel like I’m finally reaching my goal.

Before I started life coaching, I was a depressed college drop out struggling to find work. I wanted something more from my life but I didn’t know where to go or what to do. One day, I found Marcia online while googling how to find purpose in life. Life coaching sounded exactly what I needed, so I thought I’d give it a try.

My life has improved tremendously since I started life coaching. I’m back in school and I work a couple jobs on the side. I always wanted to live a balanced life and I feel like I’m finally reaching my goal. I’m much more confident in myself and have more control in my life. I feel more powerful than I’ve ever been before and I thank Marcia for her support and encouragement.

I’m going back to school because through Life Coaching I realized I have much more to offer the world.

“What Life Coaching Has Done for Me:
Life Coaching took a shy and shut in boy who wanted nothing to do with the outside world and turned my world upside down. It opened my mind to the world of possibilities around me. I’m more energetic and less depressed. Before I did Life Coaching, I was working at a dead end job and didn’t see a future for myself outside of my parents’ house. Now I’m going back to school because through Life Coaching I realized I have much more to offer the world.”

I can say that [life coaching] has been the most productive and life enhancing thing I have ever done for myself. 

“My husband and I had separated after 15 years.  I was in weekly sessions with a counselor, but didn’t feel as if I was making great progress.  My life was spinning out of control.  Then I met Marcia and signed up for life coaching.  I can say that it has been the most productive and life enhancing thing I have ever done for myself.   Marcia has given me the tools to gain self-esteem and move forward positively. For anyone who wishes to enjoy their life once again, I would recommend  Marcia Grimsley, life Coach extraordinaire!”
