My life is about finding the right balance and harmonizing the elements that are most important to my joy and success. Leaving the corporate world to be my own boss brought both terror and exhilaration.

 

Now my life is about hurling across space, releasing my grip, and reaching for the next bar. I am navigating the tricky bits of my life, keeping my eye on the target, trusting myself, and revelling in each moment.

What’s a typical day like for you?

 

I start my day after hitting snooze about 5 times. Then, I remember all the great things I get to do every day as a coach and get on with my routine. I have a 10-minute, 5-step morning process of hydration, gratitude, focus, visualization, and movement. It’s simple, and it gets me going when I have little time.

 

I chunk out my days, with allocated periods for working with clients, exploring new business ventures, and writing articles. Being a multipreneur, this helps me to keep all the balls successfully in the air. My schedule is such that I can work in quality time with my daughter and deal with household items, as well.

Of course, when you’re running your own show, you’re “on” a lot of the time — and it’s a good thing that I love what I do! Regardless of the volume of work some days, I try to follow what I preach about self-care. You must put yourself first or else you aren’t good for anyone else. That means injecting joy into my day as much as possible, even if it’s a 5-minute meditation or a few cuddles with our rescue kitten.

What in your life is really important to you?

 

I’ve had a few uh-ha moments that gave me pause about my life. Life is short, and you must do what makes you happy. My family is #1 in my life, and besides that, it’s important to me to live with intention, do meaningful work, and make a difference. It’s my mission to help women find their voice and become what they’re capable of becoming.

 

What would you like to be remembered for?

 

First and foremost, I want people to remember me as a good role model for my daughter. I have the privilege of mothering a beautiful, creative, spirited tween, and she keeps me on my toes. It’s so critical for girls to build confidence and self-worth at an early age, and I want to be part of that skill-building process for women, too. Inspiring women to take the reins of their lives and working with them to create awareness, confidence, joy, and success – that’s what gets me going every single day.

What role does fashion play in your life?

 

My daytime wardrobe has shifted over the years, depending on the culture of the organizations with which I worked. Now, as a busy mompreneur, I tend to choose soft, flowy, classic, durable pieces for every day, and more fun and fashionable items to wear when I go out to network with women in the community, meet clients, or enjoy a date night with my Mr. Right.

What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective?

 

I love the personal service at Fresh Collective. They get why women need to feel good in their clothes and insist that you only buy something you love. Online shopping at the boutique isn’t intimidating, either. Real women are featured, and you can picture yourself wearing the outfits.

 

I tend to be a bulk-shopper, and when I find clothes that fit right, inspire confidence, and make me feel like myself, I can’t resist! The clothes at Fresh Collective are perfect for my trapeze-artist lifestyle.

What do you have that you want to promote?

 

I work with busy women who want to beat overwhelm, connect to what matters most, and live a purpose-driven life – without guilt. I help them to rediscover their brilliance, take back their power, and create a life they love.

 

To support these results, I offer my services in several ways. I have individual coaching packages, in-person workshops and group coaching, and specific coaching programs like Out of Overwhelm, Who Am I, What To Do With My Life, Create A Life You Love Total Transformation.

For those interested in creating a career they love, I offer career exploration and job search programs, training and coaching on Interviewing, and resume writing.

 

I love sharing my advice using the written word and I’m a published writer and active expert contributor for several online magazines, in addition to the articles I write for my website. You can follow my blog at www.lisapetsinis.com/blog, or sign up for my newsletter and get my free resources.

What got you out of your two decades of HR work and into life and career coaching? Any advice for those looking to take a similar path?

 

I’d been in the people development field for 23 years, so it wasn’t such a big leap to want to become a certified coach. I was burning out, and I knew there was a career out there that would enable me to be my best self, create a lifestyle that was good for my family, and at the same time transform people’s lives.

 

My advice to you if you’re feeling stuck is that you don’t have to make a drastic change. Take time to reconnect with yourself. When I was figuring out what I wanted to do with my life at age 46 (it’s never too late!), I took up mindfulness, and it was a game changer. I then delved into my interests, values, strengths, and innate preferences – and dug deep. I hired a coach, explored possibilities, and I create a new and compelling vision for my life.

I went back to school and earned credentials as a certified coach with the International Coach Federation (ACC), Certified Career Coaching Specialist, and certified Strong Interest Inventory® practitioner – on top of my HR Leader (CHRL) and MBTI® certifications.

 

My advice to others is to do the same. Invest in yourself, and you’ll find your path and your purpose.

So, as a certified coach, what got you interested in joining our Affiliate Program? How does it tie in with the work you already do?

 

It’s natural for me to share information about what works with people, whether that’s healthy products, life lessons, career advice, or clothes that make you feel fantastic. Joining the Fresh Collective Affiliate Program was an easy decision.

 

I envision my clients getting their back-to-work wardrobes together, boosting their confidence with a dress that shows their personality, or simply picking up something that sparks joy. My clients deserve to say, “I love my life!” and “I feel amazing wearing this!”

You offer FREE discovery coaching calls! How long is the call, and what can I expect from our conversation?

 

I offer a 20-minute complimentary coaching call to help women determine what they want to be different in their lives and identify what they have to gain by moving forward. They walk away with one simple yet impactful step that they can implement right away. On this call, we also figure out whether it’s a fit for us to work together.

Is there anything else we should know about you?

 

I’m a self-professed Passion Planner addict. I consult it, decorate it, and virtually nothing happens that isn’t in my planner!  I also love vision boards! I have 3 of them, and I run full-day workshops so that other women can create a clear vision of a life they love!

People tell me it’s the thoughtfulness, empathy, and care that I bring to each situation that makes the difference to others. You can count on my experience, credentials, authenticity, and devotion to your joy and success.
