Meet Lisa Fredette Certified Life Coach

This week we had the honor to interview Charter Elite Member Lisa Fredette, CTA Certified Life Coach, Founder of Passionate About Life Coaching. Here’s what Lisa had to say….

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Lisa Fredette. I am a certified life coach, author, speaker, radio host and owner of Passionate About Life Coaching. I was introduced to life coaching during a challenging time in my life – a separation from my husband of sixteen years. I participated in a weekend workshop that was facilitated by life coaches. The support and insights I gained from that weekend were magical. The magic didn’t end there - I participated in group coaching and one on one coaching for up to a year after that weekend.

I truly believe that it was the work with my life coach and the life coaching process that allowed me to effectively heal and grow through my divorce. This experience also provided me with the opportunity to finally live out my life purpose. I have always had a nagging feeling that I was meant to do more, help others, try and make an impact on others. Well my introduction to life coaching ended that nagging, that is when I pursued my certification with the Coach Training Alliance and Passionate about Life Coaching was born. When I started my business three years ago it was only natural for me to start with divorce recovery as my focus. I still have this as my primary focus but I have since expanded to working with women on all relationship issues. The journey to this point has been amazing and I am so excited about what my future journey will be.

2. What would you say is your “claim to fame”

I believe that my claim to fame is my intuitive nature for one. The other is my ability to cut through the story and get to the truth. Finally, getting my clients to face their truth, which allows them to create a reality that is truly amazing.

3. What do you enjoy most about your profession?

When I hear my clients hit their “aha moments”, it is truly an amazing experience. When they know that they have truly arrived – wow! I can literally see the light bulb turn on, nothing is the same from that time forward. Great things happen from this place.

4. What are some of the trends you are noticing in your profession/industry?

I see that many coaches are moving toward a membership type business and other income sources then just one on one coaching, which I think is awesome. This allows many more people to experience the magic of life coaching.

5. From where do you draw inspiration?

My inspiration comes from learning and networking. I am a life-long learner. If there is something I don’t know how to do I take a class, workshop or read about it. I also surround myself with a lot of different kinds of people. Having these two things in my life allows me to plant the seeds. I then continue to nurture and cultivate those seeds until one day they sprout into an inspiration. I never know when it will hit but I am always open and ready and when it hits I am quick to act on it before it is gone.

6. What one thing would you like to learn this year?

I would love to learn how to use the law of attraction more effectively. I have the basic understanding of how it works and how to incorporate it into my life but I want to make it a greater part of my daily life and to be able to more clearly articulate the vision that I want to manifest.

7. What are your personal/professional goals for the next 6 months, year?

Personally I would like to experience a spiritual retreat. I want to surround myself with others who speak my language and want to experience more fully spirituality in their life and I want to learn from a master who already has this. Professionally, I want to continue to grow my business so I can experience financial abundance effortlessly. I want to continue to meet and touch the lives of amazing people who want to fully experience their greatness. I want to continue to attract members to my membership site, sell my ebooks, write more books and attract members to participate in my coaching programs as well as experience one on one coaching with me.

8. What do you like to do for recreation?

I love to golf. I also enjoy exercising, both cardio and weight training. I like to run and race. I enjoy reading, watching movies and spending quality time with my daughter, Kaitlin and my partner, Gary. I enjoy long walks with my dog, Tori.

9. What book(s) are on your nightstand?

Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsh, The Law of Attraction by Esther and Jerry Hicks, Women and Money by Suze Orman to list a few.

10. What is the one thing you would like readers to know about you?

I get my energy from the sun and warm weather – which is a real challenge living in Western Pennsylvania. I plan to move someday to a warmer climate that speaks more completely to my soul and feeds my energy.

About your company?

The name of my company was no accident. I am passionate about helping people and I am passionate about life. Everything that I do and develop for my business is designed to help others regain their passion for life, whether it be after a divorce, reclaiming your relationship with you or finding that special someone to spend the rest of your life with.

Also, if you would like to include a statement about the benefits of being a member of the WECAI Network™ that would be terrific!

I love being a member of WECAI Network. As a member I have the opportunity to experience the two things that support my inspirations; education and networking. I am able to learn from experts on how to build my business and I get to surround myself with like-minded people. It is awesome!
