"Sam coaches with her whole heart...she gets to know you as a client and knows exactly what you need at that very moment! In the best and most compassionate way, Sam pushed me. It was just that hard love that I needed. I think a big realization I had during coaching was that I was afraid to succeed. I had learned how to accept failure as an opportunity but the bigger fear was, "what if I do this and I actually succeed?" I come from a family where money has always been tight and the struggle has always kept us close. The fear of becoming successful came with this fear of not fitting in with my family. I needed that realization to move forward, and Sam was right there to help me through it. This realization came after the "tough love" where Sam noticed I was doing a lot of avoiding and distracting, rather than taking action. When she brought this up, she asked me to go deeper into why I was avoiding, and what was the fear behind this? This was a game changer for me. The awareness alone. It has helped change my mindset and allowed me to stop when I notice this happening and make the choice to change it. Now that I have finished coaching, I have the confidence knowing I am completely capable of starting a business and succeeding. I know that what I have to offer the world no one else has because I am the only me."
