Big Secret book by Jack Canfield, Dudley Evenson and success leaders

My chapter is called “The Harmonious Sounds of Success: A Story of Peace Through Music.” It was fun to share some of Dean Evenson’s and my adventures and learning experiences on our way to successfully living our dreams. Jack Canfield offers his own perspectives in how to attain success in life and the other authors have great stories too.

Many thanks for considering being involved in this book launch.

My Coaching Journey

by Dudley Evenson

I was curious about life coaching and always felt I could be helpful in that field. My life experiences have prepared me in many ways to understand issues people are dealing with. A few years ago, I volunteered at our local low power radio station and met the wives of a couple of the guys working there. These two ladies, Laura and Terri, were both practicing ‘life coaches.’ I realized that my long marriage with Dean Evenson has taught me about relationships; raising children about parenting; our ‘decade of intentional poverty’ and living in a school bus about simple living; running our music label, Soundings of the Planet, about being a successful business owner and entrepreneur; my own life path about healthy living. I had a lot of life experience, but I didn’t know yet how to translate that into being a useful life coach.

Laura and Terri invited me to join the Northwest Corner Coaches Meetup group and I got to know a lot of people in the field. We networked and put on events to raise awareness about the coaching profession. I then trained to be guide and lead AARP Life Reimagined Checkups to help people through the inevitable changes that life presents, especially for people over fifty. After that, I was able to get professional training with Impact Coaching Academy and was fortunate that Terri was my teacher. In the course, I got a full overview on how to be a coach and all that entails on a professional level and recently I received my official Life Coach Certification. I now have several clients and still have some ‘pro bono’ clients who I am working with for free to give me more experience and hopefully in the process, put my new skills to use in helping them move forward in their lives.

This past weekend, Terri and I led the AARP Life Reimagined Checkup here in Bellingham. We had a great turnout and people got to go through a process of looking at their passions, values, skills and experiences to choose ‘what’s next’ in their lives. This coming Saturday (May 21, 2016), our Northwest Corner Coaches group is sponsoring a free COACHING CAFÉ where we will share more about the coaching field, introduce people to some local coaches and offer the ability to sign up for free coaching sessions to those who attend.
