Anne Kosem Life Coach

Meet Anne

Dear Clients,

Welcome, I’m glad you’re here!

As a coach, I’ll be asking  you to share your story with me so I’d like to begin by sharing my journey to coaching with you.

I have always been a very enthusiastic person with a strong internal drive. Over the years, my positive nature and motivation have served me well, but there were times when my drive to succeed drove right over Me!

Looking back, I see how focused I was on achievement – in academics, sports, and extracurricular activities. I wanted to do everything, be everything. I craved the validation that came with success. Mainly because I lacked genuine confidence. I also didn’t want to disappoint anyone. The fear of failure and the weight of disapproval kept me from pursuing my greater passions and in some ways even realizing them.

I sought fulfillment in a career where I knew I could be successful, marketing and communication. I went on to earn my master’s degree in business administration and progressed into a managerial role. I enjoyed leading a team, but I was hungry for something more so when the opportunity came to partner in a family business venture, I took the leap!

Building a business from the ground up was quite an adventure.  It was harder than I thought it would be, but it was also infinitely more rewarding. It took grit and also a willingness to be a novice again. For while I was able to utilize my business knowledge and expertise to launch the company,  I was breaking into a whole new industry.  I had to get new licenses,  grow new skill sets and adapt others. For a while, I thought this was it.

Then a friend asked me to edit her book. It was a story of growth and transformation. As ai read it, something shifted in me.  Suddenly, I wanted to grow. More than anything, I wanted to figure out why, with all the good things in my life, I still felt restless and unfulfilled. I devoted myself to my personal and spiritual growth, and really started listening to my inner voice.  Instead of trying to trying to fit the mold of what I thought I” should” be, I focused my energy on two questions, “What do I want?”  “What am I willing to change to get it?” That’s when my journey as a coach began.

I enrolled in courses to became a certified life coach and professional coach and, upon earning my certifications, started a practice right away. I found my passion and it is my great joy to help others grow and develop their own. In their career, relationships and within themselves.

Everyone has the right to live a life of purpose and passion! Sometimes we encounter stumbling blocks on our path to finding it. They show up in our work and in our relationships, time and again they cycle, until we knock them down and replace them with a pathway that serves us better.  It is never too early or too late to create a pathway that leads to a balanced, purposeful life.

I would be honored if you would allow me to walk along side you in this quest. Giving you the guidance, support and encouragement you need to Become Your Own Success Story!
