What Is Life Coaching?
Life coaches love talking to people, figuring out what makes them tick and developing plans to help them succeed in their personal and professional lives. They meet with clients in person or over the phone and listen to challenges, help them set goals, and provide accountability. The agenda for the coaching session depends on what the client needs in order to advance – be it support, motivation, resources, feedback, or a gentle push forward. At the end of the call, the client agrees to take specific action steps before the next session.
It is easier to remain unconscious without an audience. Having others who witness your process of transformation keeps you conscious and awake. – Dr. Barbara De Angelis
Coaching with Me
I have always loved talking with people one-to-one, listening deeply to what they are really saying, and offering insights and suggestions for how they can move forward. One of my core gifts is that I am a “people-developer.” I have always been able to see the potential and possibilities in others. Creating a safe space for people to share and explore their true feelings and dreams has always come naturally to me.
When I combine this natural coaching skill with my problem solving skills as a lawyer, my formal training at Coach U, and my personal journey in living more joyfully, I reach amazing results for those who work with me. With over fourteen years of experience as a life coach, I have developed a laser-like ability to dial in on where a client‘s heart wants to go in life and what is holding him or her back.
Here is what several clients have to say about our work together:
I randomly found Cindy Clemens on the internet while looking for a coach. I watched the video she has on her website and thought I’d give her a try. I felt an immediate connection with Cindy from the first time we spoke. I was feeling stuck and she allowed me to figure out solutions, simply by asking the appropriate questions. The way she worded things opened up my eyes to a different perspective. What I most love about Cindy is she gives me the perspective to figure things on my own, just the little nudge I need to make a small change that makes all the difference.
– Kris Olmore
I have been a client of Cindy Clemens since March 2011, and I truly feel she has helped me gain more clarity with respect to my goals and aspirations in my professional life and even my personal life. Recently I was in the midst of a career change and Cindy helped me to look deeper to find what I was passionate about. We really focused on that and I found a job that had my name on it.
– Cynthia Brown
I was in a “good job making good money” but did not feel fulfilled. Then I meet Cindy, former lawyer, who inspired me to figure out what I liked to do and what fulfilled me. She gave me great tools and soon my job got better, but more than that, I am now doing more things that inspire me through my job and volunteer work.
– Joyce Bowers
Working with Cindy has permitted me to achieve goals I could have only dreamed of achieving. For example, I scaled Colorado’s Mt. Sherman even though I was terribly afraid of heights as a child. Before that, I successfully found re-employment in a professional position after just 3 months in the job market, during the worst hiring environment in 80 years. All of us can – and should – set ambitious goals. But, Cindy’s “secret sauce” is that she combines real-world, practical steps with big-picture goal-setting, permitting you to achieve your stretch goals.

I am very flexible with my clients. I offer both structured coaching packages as well as the A la Carte option where you can decide what issues we will focus on and how often we will connect. My sessions are by phone or by Skype. I accept checks and credit cards. I am open to taking on a few more coaching clients, so let me know if you are interested in partnering with me to create and live a truly joyful life.
The first step is to set up a time to talk and let you experience the power of coaching during a complimentary 20-minute exploratory phone session. We can review the coaching options and see what is right for you. For more information or to schedule your exploratory session, call me at (435) 632-3311 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A la Carte Coaching – $90 per Session
During our first session we will discuss what to focus on and decide how often it makes sense to talk. Possible areas of focus include:
- How to carve out more time for you to identify and then do the things that brings you joy and happiness
- Evaluate your current career path and decide if you want to make any shifts
- Develop strategies to deal with “The Committee” – the fears, doubts and negative self-talk that keep you from stretching and getting out of your comfort zone to where the magic really happens.
- Upgrade your community – eliminate the energy vampires and connect with more positive people who share your interests
I do not require you to commit to a minimum of sessions. Because I do give “homework” to complete between sessions, most clients schedule a session every 2-3 weeks.

The Pink Box Coaching Sampler – $90
Are you a busy professional who focuses most of your attention on your business and career success? Have you found yourself neglecting your own happiness and joy? Have you started to wonder if getting to the top of the career ladder must involve giving up the passions and pursuits that fill your heart and soul? I know about being at this place in life, which is why I created a tool to help you reconnect with your joy center and make new life choices that will bring your more joy. It is called The Pink Box.
The Pink Box is about creating and savoring your unique recipe for joy. Much like the delight you get from filling a pink bakery box with tasty treats, it is equally delicious to fill your life with the people, pursuits, and personal care that allow you to “injoy” every precious moment.
I am offering a Pink Box Coaching Sampler program to introduce you to this tool and get you focused on bringing more joy into your life season by season. It includes the following:
- The Pink Box Tool and the Joy Prompts which I will send you as PDF files.
- A 60-minute phone session where I will ask you probing questions to uncover what are the keys to your inner joy and fulfillment in the areas of personal wellness, passion, prosperity, people, perfect lifestyle, and play time.
- You will then complete your Pink Box and select three specific areas of joy to focus on for the season. I will send you the Seasonal Joy Selection PDF to print, fill out and hang up someplace in your home or office to guide you in remembering to slow down, be present, and injoy your life.
- At the end of the Season, I will send you an email asking for an update on how you did.
By doing the Pink Box Coaching Sampler, you will identify the specific things you want to focus on in your life that will bring you more joy. Instead of wasting time trying to decide how to spend your precious free time, you will know exactly what to do to make your heart sing. Plus, by giving your joy some attention, it will naturally increase. After all, energy flows where attention goes. You will see how easy it is to make this joy selection process a regular habit for each new season, and you can download a new Seasonal Joy Selection sheet from my website at the beginning of each season.
