You’re Invited to the Create Don’t Wait Summit

This is Your Time: Create Don’t Wait.

Create Don't Wait Flyer

You’re a creator. Whether you’re an artist or an entrepreneur, you have a creative vision and you want, more than anything, to be inspired and empowered to share it with the world—with confidence!

Only, you need new skills and systems to break through whatever holds you back (like analysis paralysis, fear, confusion or lack of clarity).

SIGN UP HERE!

And you’re confident that, when you DO break through, you’ll feel capable, joyful, alive, and in love with you, your life, and your work! (Right?)

I want you to know that you CAN make this vision reality.

My friend and colleague, Marcelle Voomz, is on a mission to show you how. To that end, she’s put together a no-cost interview series that unites more than 20 experts and influencers, including me, to share advice for living in the flow, fearlessly expressing yourself, and elevating the world!

It’s called Create Don’t Wait, it begins February 21, and you can sign up here to join us:

Create Work That Fulfills You—And Impacts The World!outline of a head with a lightbulb made of colorful pieces inside the mind

When you go to the link above and sign up to join us, you’ll discover powerful, proven strategies you can begin using right away to clarify your vision, unleash your creative potential, and launch your dreams with a phenomenal sense of purpose.

Specifically, you’ll have the opportunity to dive deep into lessons on:

  • Creativity: why it’s important, and how to use yours to design a life you love while changing the world.
  • Mindset: how to harness the limitless power of your mind to expand your consciousness, therefore enabling ideas, solutions, and abundance to flow to you.
  • Alignment: what it is, why it’s critical in creating a life you can fall in love with, and how to ensure you’re in alignment, so you’re always functioning at your best.
  • Productivity: specific tools and systems you can use to overcome blocks like procrastination, perfectionism, lack of clarity, and fear, so you can move forward efficiently, living your dream!
  • Social Impact: how to clarify your message and connect with your audience—and how doing so empowers you to make the kind of social impact you want to make.
  • And so much more.

artistic painted light bulbIn short, if you’re looking to feel inspired and rejuvenated, and to develop new tools to bring your creativity forward and share it with the world—while designing a life you absolutely love—then this is where you want to be, starting February 21.

Marcelle is the perfect person to host this summit. As an artist and composer, she’s struggled with many of the same issues you have, as she has learned to overcome resistance to bring her projects and business to life.

Although she was once fearless, somewhere along the way, she found herself frozen with fear. She’d get stuck in analysis paralysis, indecision, and lack of clarity.

Still, she knew she had to create. There was no other way, no other option. Over time, she began to develop systems to get herself started and keep herself going whenever she found herself going around in circles about what to work on or where to start … and over time, she gained the clarity she needed.

Now, she’s on a mission to share her systems—and the systems of other experts in the field—with you, so you can define and follow a path to a life that works for you and for your creativity.

That’s why she’s offering Create Don’t Wait.

I plan to listen in as well as speak, and I sincerely hope that if you want to elevate your emotional state and be your best self, live in creative flow, and elevate the world, then you’ll join me so you can learn to conquer fear and resistance and put yourself and your work out there.

Kate Michels to Headline Functional Health Team Event

FHT Academy Header Image

THE POWER OF CORE ALIGNMENT!

I am honored to be chosen as guest speaker presenting Assertiveness for Our Well Being as the topic of the next Functional Health Team Academy event this Tuesday, November 14, at the Medici MediaSpace in Overland, Missouri.

The topic is about recognizing that our doctors, specialists, and therapists are working for us. Using this awareness with acceptance, we awaken to having the confidence to get more of what it is that we really want. Training ourselves to be emotionally wise enough to have the assertiveness to request, expect and receive the care we are ready for. I am an adviser and Core Alignment Trainer with Functional Health Team, which was founded by Dr. Matthew Flory and launched earlier this year.

“Functional Health Team members enjoy a whole body, ‘health detective’ style approach to their health care. We believe in the Golden Rule … which in our business means genuine doctor-patient support and being there for people when they need it … any day they need it. We realize that by making small, important changes you can create a firm foundation for your future and take an active role in designing your life.” functionalhealthteam.com/about

My Interview about Misdiagnosis and Cancer on the “Keepin’ It Real with Janean” Show

Janean Strong Header

 

Sooner or later, cancer touches all our lives in some way, and this year I faced some difficult health choices that called upon Core Alignment Coaching and Emotional Wisdom Training to guide me on the best possible path I could be on for my own healing.

Janean Strong invited me to be the guest on an episode of the Keepin’ It Real with Janean show, to learn how I spent years in pain, misdiagnosed. As Janean introduces the topic of her interview with me, “Finally, it became obvious that she had cancer…not willing to ‘play the cancer game’ she sought a cure and discovered Functional Medicine…this is her journey.”

Kate Michels’ “Ripples in the Water” appears in Choice Magazine

The ripple effect is miraculous and the changes are numerous. -Kate Michels

I’ve had the pleasure of writing another article for choice magazine. This issue of choice magazine addresses social responsibility through coaching, and in my article, I discuss the ripple effect that is set into motion with each conversation that you have with your clients. Here is an excerpt from my article that was accepted for publication in this special issue. Be sure to click on the link below to read the entire article.

The ripples go and on. This is a statement we are all familiar with and it is a great reminder that what we all do does really matter. It’s important as coaches to realize how far the ripples from a coaching session really are able to travel.

Think about the clients you have spoken to this week, over the last month, throughout the past year and (if applicable) clients you have worked with over many years. Now just pick one client – any one will do. Think about this client and consider the significance their sessions with you have made on the choices they have made in their life. Now expand this thought out to the pchoice magazine covereople that this client is in relationship with: their partner, children and close friends. Recognize how your client’s choices are impacting these people directly – so much so that it is almost as if those people are coaching with you, too. Move out a bit further to the extended relationships of your client, such as their co-workers and neighbors. Do you recognize how their coaching sessions with you and the changes they are making in their life are impacting these other people on a regular basis? (read the full article here)

Kate Michels’ “Coaching is Ageless” appears in Choice Magazine

“Our clients are creators and artists with their own lives as their canvas, and we as coaches are there at their side to provide guidance, to shine a light from various angles and to spotlight specific areas.” – Kate Michels

choice magazine coverIt is always a pleasure to write for choice magazine and this issue is particularly interesting because it addresses generational concerns as related to coaching and being coached. It particularly focuses on the Millennials. Here is an excerpt from my article that was accepted for publication in this special issue. Be sure to click on the link below to read the entire article.

Eleven years ago, when I was two years into building my coaching practice, my 20-year-old daughter decided to become a life coach herself. The concept thrilled me and I knew it was a profession that would suit her talents and abilities well. The admissions people for the program she considered joining asked her age, then discouraged her by saying people might not be willing to hire someone so young since her experiences were limited. They then added perhaps there was a chance if she wanted to work with teenagers or preteens. This led her to believe that maybe when she was older she would have more to offer as a coach; thus her enthusiasm was quenched and she chose to move in a different career direction.

Was this the best advice to give a young person considering coach training? As a professional coach trainer now myself, I often reflect upon this moment and feel saddened at the limitations that were projected onto my daughter. In sharing this personal story, I ask you to truly consider the coaching profession as ageless. Coaching does not require us to have any personal experience to understand where clients are coming from or to support them in where they are going. (read full article here)
