VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

Hey guys, Happy Wednesday. If you’re new here, I’m Shaina. Welcome to the land of bettering yourself and your life. Today, I’m telling a story- the story of how I became a life coach…(OOOH)

OPENING

Once upon a time in a land, far far away …(music and effects)…just playin…

First of all, if you’ve heard parts of this story through my videos, or my website or straight from the source- my mouth…well, you’re going to hear it again and you’re going to like it. Just kidding again. Focus.

OK, how did I become a life coach…

Well, I went to a 4 year college like any high school graduate is told to do…without an idea of what I wanted to do, who I was, who I wanted to be or knowing how to write check for that matter. At college orientation, we were forced to choose a major- or in my case I opted for “undecided” because that’s how you justify paying 20 grand a year. After one semester down, I sat down with my “guidance counselor” who didn’t know my name, but who encouraged (MOCKING) me to choose. After about a 60 second deliberation, I chose textiles, merchandising and design (effect). Whatever that entialed. After realizing what a silly mistake that was, I switched to the very distinguished field of communication studies aka “undecided” with a proper name.

Ok, this story is already too long.

Fast forward. Graduated with honors. No job. No direction. No money. Living back at home. I ended up working on the front lines (pause) as a customer service rep for a well know bank. After about a year of being verbally abused by people with less money than me and being told when I could use the bathroom everyday, I landed a job in radio advertising in Hartford CT.

This is when my life changed completely. Yea, that’s not exactly true.

I promised myself I wouldn’t relive this period of my life. And yet here I am…

I was very unhappy at that job and where my life was back then. But as miserable as I was, I learned a lot. I learned all the things I didn’t want and I had a pretty big wake up call and that was…I wasn’t living up to my full potential and… After 9 months, I woke up, not being able to physically, mentally or emotionally able to do it anymore, I quit without a plan. Because that’s what intuitive people do, or idiots.

The only thing I did know for sure was that I wasn’t going to jump into a “real job” until I found what I was looking for, and that was my passion and purpose. I moved to Boston where I nannied to pay the bills. At first I got so caught up in making money that I pushed my mission aside. After about nine months there (9 months was the magic number I guess), I moved out to LA to see my mission through once and for all.

The first year was messy…

Thank you so much for the video. I can totally relate to a lot of what you went through. I'm in my year off from high school now and after going through personal development and a few tony Robbins events I feel like being a life coach would be an amazing career choice.

Empress Alex says:

You're a true inspiration to a young youtuber and a 15 year old wanna be life coach. I love it!

dramadupree says:

Love this video!!! You're a great story teller??

Andra Maria Wellness says:

You're so hilarious! Coaching is still fairly new… when we were younger it wasn't like "oh I can become a life coach!" … it didn't even exist! It totally took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do to!

Michelle Lawrence says:

Why did you choose Martha Beck certification?

Timothy Bollig says:

I'm quitting my teaching job of 2 years this summer and moving back home to focus on something else. I just can't see myself being a teacher 25+ years so I need to find my own passion. While I do have some ideas of what I'm going to do once I get back home I still feel like I might be an "idiot" for leaving my job since right now I don't have something else lined up. I have a lot of time to figure it out but it still scares me.

Zlatko Davidovic says:
