Who’s your coach?

“Coach” is a title I used to avoid.

I am not a fan of fads, and I worried that “coaching” was trendy. So, I’ve been tangling with the coach title since 1999 when someone told me that there was a name for what I was already doing.

“Life Coach”

Truth be told, I have been a coach since the early 80s, only we didn’t give it that title. We called it “sales trainer.”

I was lucky to work for This End Up Furniture Co., a business whose values matched mine. One of the core aspects I loved about TEU in the early days was the philosophy that we are all just human beings.  So,  rather than have a customer/salesperson relationship, why not have a human-to-human relationship?

What a concept!

I found that the title “coach” implies such a human-to-human relationship. One individual collaborating with another to realize success.

I have since collaborated with individuals, entrepreneurs, and companies who have a desire to grow, shift, and even dance toward their life vision.

I am immensely grateful and proud to be a part of this pioneering effort, which provides a gentle guide to usher you to your inner strengths and talents. Some call this your “inner guru,” others simply “finding yourself.”

I am proud to be such a guide.

am a coach.

Testimonials
“I have been fortunate enough to work with Lee Beaven in both This End Up Furniture Company and Storehouse. Actually, we hired her at Storehouse because we knew her talent and experience. What better recommendation is there than that? She is a perceptive and patient coach, always keeps her focus on the individual's growth and the goals they have set together. I would welcome the opportunity to work with her again." ~Anita Pugh, Co-Author Pathway to Profit, Richmond, VA
