We're proud to share that, once again, Capes Coaching is celebrating an anniversary! This month marks eleven years serving creative professionals worldwide, helping our clients align with their truest passions, and bringing dreams to life. We couldn't be more excited with where we are, and where we're going. After all this time helping you with your Paths, we thought we'd celebrate by sharing with you these eleven ways we've honored our own Path this year!
I'm big on metaphors. Anyone who coaches with me knows this. There's something about an image — a visual representation — that just locks in an idea for me. Even better, I've found that the perfect metaphor can resonate universally; it's a powerful tool that can connect a vast amount of people in a very simply way. This proved true just recently in a group coaching session at One on One — I threw out the idea that navigating a career in this business is a lot like being on a roller coaster, and the entire room gave a collective sigh and emphatic "YES!"
I want to let you in on a little secret: When it comes to maintaining balance in my life (whether dealing with my career, my relationships, or —as of recently — raising a child), I love mantras. I love coming up with one because it requires me to take stock and focus on what I really need. I love that my mantras are tailored to me and my inclinations. And most of all, I love that something so simple can have such a profound effect. Those of you who have coached with me probably already know this because I have likely encouraged you to come up with your own mantras; for those of you who are unfamiliar with them, it's my great pleasure to introduce you.
