Coaching for High Achievers

Essential solutions designed for high-potential professionals who want to thrive in their personal and professional life.

If you crave a leadership edge, a higher level of success, more time, solid direction and more fulfillment, you’re in the right place.

Questions you may have asked yourself…

Why do I have zero time to do the things I really want to do?

Why am I not using my true talents at work?

How do I connect with my passion and purpose?

How do I stop feeling stuck and in a rut?

How can I move up in leadership?

What can I do to change my career path?

How do I figure out what to do next?

Now imagine changing your focus like this

Success is an experience, not a destination. The more fun you have on your journey, the more motivating it is to keep that success level high. When the success level is high, you achieve more. When you achieve more, you’re happy. When you’re happy, you spread the positivity to others and they become happy. When everyone’s happy, we have world peace! Did we just claim we can solve world peace? (Legal disclaimer, no we didn’t, but wouldn’t that be cool?)

Suddenly you wake up and feel more balanced and in control of your life, you have more time to do the things that matter most to you and feel more passionate about your purpose than you ever have before. You feel focused, more confident and fulfilled because you’re living the life you’ve always wanted. Life is awesome!

All of this is possible with a leadership coach on your side

We help high achievers just like you to create those amazing outcomes. It’s your time to finally go after that passion and ditch your unfulfilling job or travel when you want and how you want, or afford the finer things in life. There’s no limit to what you can achieve when it’s centered around your true purpose. You can become a high-performing success story even if you’ve been at this for years. All it takes is to create the road map to success and then follow it.

"I decided to work with Kristie because I wanted to bring alignment to my career and leadership goals and prepare for the next steps of my development journey."

However, I had issues with prioritization and taking action. But after working with
Kristie in her program, I received so many benefits! Clear goals were set by
learning prioritization of my core values then set goals related to my core values.
We also focused on leadership development, networking and coaching
opportunities and building confidence to move forward in my aspirations. A major
insight was confirming my primary personality style. This helped me identify the
opportunity to be bolder and to gain confidence to move forward with my goals
and dreams. What I liked best about working with Kristie, is her insights and
personal examples she used when coaching plus the opportunity to grow with
others in a group coaching environment. I appreciated the flexibility of the program
and the opportunity to do some things at my own pace while being encouraged to
set short term action items to keep my momentum going. I would certainly
recommend Create Your Sweet Life to those that are either looking to take the
next step in their development journey and need additional insight to boost them in
the right direction, or for those that need guidance to identify their career goals
and discover more about who they are.

"When I first met Kristie I was recently moved into a team leader role with a handful of people to manage. My only prior experience with managing people was in a volunteer setting. Now it was real. With real decisions to make, monitoring performance, delegating tasks, managing workloads, helping guide people, and more. She found me as a stressed out, burnt out, and exhausted semi-functioning human being."

I was working 12-14 hour days and didn’t know how to handle the many new responsibilities.  I had so many issues that I didn’t know what they were or how to go about dealing with them. I met with Kristie and through our casual conversations, she helped identify and guide me on three of my biggest areas of improvement: time management, dealing with personalities, and life purpose.  

Using some of my real-life experiences, she provided me advice on how to approach each of them.  She also provided additional tools (recordings, documents, apps, etc) to help me through my battles.  The counseling sessions were always a great way to quickly get me back on track and re-focused on what I needed to change. The additional resources she provided were continually re-enforcement to keep me on track between the times we meet.

I remember one specific moment in my career that I used Kristie’s advice to make an important decision without stressing myself out.  I was contacted to see if I would be interested in a position available in another department.  I went through the interview process and learned about what the job would be.  I was interested but I was also content with where I was at in my current job. Kristie encouraged me to make decisions on if something would take me closer or further away from my life goals and purposes.  After some thought I decided that taking the job would not be good for my personal life. I had some major life changes coming up that I wanted to be able to have the ability to take time off whenever needed and not be stressed out with taking that time off.  I had that comfort with my current job and didn’t want to risk losing that to impact my personal life, which was my priority at the time. I was confidently able to decline. 

The counseling sessions were always a great way to quickly get me back on track and re-focused on what I needed to change. The additional resources she provided were continually re-enforcement to keep me on track between the times we meet. With practicing the various time management and prioritizing advice from Kristie, today I am working 8 to 9 hours a day, have an amazing healthy relationship with my significant other and family, travel more, and have a healthy lifestyle overall. By learning from Kristie on how to work with people of different personalities, backgrounds, and viewpoints, I have been very successful in my career.  I have won back-to-back divisional leadership awards, multiple individual recognition awards, and endless compliments from my own leadership on how well I manage my people.  

I am extremely grateful for everything Kristie has done to help me live a life that I want to live, both in my career and personal life.  I hope many others are able to be blessed with such a positive life changing experience through conversations with Kristie.

“When I first heard of Kristie’s program, I needed direction. I was unsure if I wanted to focus on a corporate position or start a company. These were my greatest challenges — focus and direction. While in her program, I was able to identify all the possibilities and my desired outcomes then define the actions needed. I most liked the applicable information; the breadcrumbs along a path and the strategies that aligned with DISC personality traits.

— Christopher Johnson

Founder, Calm Clear Communications, LLC

“I had a one on one coaching session with Kristie and she gave me ideas on how I can broaden my reach to certain leadership opportunities in our organization. I’ll take these as actions for me, so I can be more successful at the role I play at my company.”

"I joined Create Your Sweet Life because I was hoping to find different things that were missing from my life that this program would help me regain or add back. I definitely didn’t know exactly what that looked like for me, but I knew I needed someone who had the expertise and the guidance and the knowledge that Kristie had that would help me get there."

I knew I didn’t want to go down the same path I’d been down. Also I just turned 50 and  it was a very critical year for me and it caused me to rethink and refocus on my life. It causes you to look back, where have you been and look at where you want to go and I knew there was some things that needed to change in my life. That meant, I needed more balance, I needed a lot more direction and focus. And I wanted more time for me and more time for my friends and family and things that are really important. Work is very meaningful and very important to me too, however, I need all aspects of my life and that was an area I felt like I was really not giving enough to.

For me, what I’ve gotten from this program is so much more than I could’ve ever imagined it would’ve been. I am not the same person I was a year ago by any means. Previously, I think I was just getting through the day—just trying to make it from start to finish, but maybe really not living each day to the fullest as I could be. I have gotten things identified for me that I was looking for in life that are really important: setting goals—not just short-term goals, but long-term goals and how to develop those, how to create those. Focusing on what’s important each day and every day and that helps. Even when you have a tough day as we all will have, it helps put it back in perspective for refocus. Kristie, you have helped calm my nerves a lot during this program and have “talked me off the ledge” many times when I’ve had some tough days and tough times. I always feel better when we finish with our coaching call. I also enjoy the community as well. We share so much in this space, it’s very confidential, very private and you recognize other people get what you’re going through and we’re in this together.

The major insight I got was resilience—definitely not to give up. And if it doesn’t work the way you hoped it had, for that day or that week, or that month, it doesn’t mean you can’t get back on track. In fact, when you pick back up, it may be even better than what you produced before.  Trying to be positive helps me through this program. I’m learning each day. Each day there’s something beneficial that we get to live. It may not always be as obvious to us., but there’s something we’re going to get out of that day that helps us put tools in our toolkit for the future. It’s also helped me recognize what’s most important and most valuable to me. And I have a road map that I never would have had before. I would’ve had a little piece of it here and there, but not to the level that this program has provided. Every step of the way, it’s been extremely beneficial.

And even if I thought I might have had that road map figured out or written down, Kristie is really good about pushing us, so that we don’t stop, we don’t just go “Ok, I’m good”.  It’s been very encouraging and tough, but in a good way, not a bad way! And it’s exactly what I wanted and needed from a coach who’s going to push me and make me work really hard. It’s been the program that I needed. It’s been extremely important and I cannot thank you enough Kristie, for pushing me even when I didn’t feel like it that day, you still did it and I needed it.

Working with Kristie has been amazing for me. Kristie is so energetic, engaged in the conversations with us and knowledgeable of so many different things. She’s well read and knows topics about most anything that we bring up and if not, she’ll google it or find a book from her nifty bookcase that she can incorporate into this program. I had the sense I wasn’t alone. I never felt alone and if I ever needed anything anytime, I could just email her or message her and Kristie would respond sometimes within minutes. I always felt I could get an answer to a question or anything I needed. If I needed encouragement, I would get that. Sometimes she would just check in with me and would say “I know you really had a lot going on with such and such, how did that go?” I could not be more happy with Kristie as a coach. I’ve referred her to many people who I know they need coaches in their life and hopefully they’ll be able to do that. And hopefully they select Kristie.

I would definitely recommend Kristie for a coaching program.  I think this is the best program that’s  available. The reason I would suggest Kristie is because this is a program like none other. I wanted to create my sweet life. I have done that, I’m still doing that I will always be doing that and I will not stop doing that. And as a result of this incredible coaching program  I am not the same person.  I don’t want to look back where I came from, I want to move forward each day. I have such great tools, ideas and resources at my fingertips now that I never could have ever imagined. I would recommend that you definitely select Kristie for your journey, to create your sweet life and to find out what you’ve been missing all this time. Don’t wait. Don’t wait another 6 months or another year to start this program. Do it now. Do it for you. It’s the biggest and best investment you can do for yourself.

I would definitely suggest that you enlist in this program with Kristie.  Do that as soon as you can—it will change your life. I am so different today than I was a year ago in every aspect of my life.I could not be more pleased with any other program. I am not the same person. I don’t want to look back where I came from, I want to move forward each day. I have such great tools, ideas and resources at my fingertips now that I never could have ever imagined. I would recommend that you definitely select Kristie for your journey, to create your sweet life and to find out what you’ve been missing all this time. Don’t wait. Don’t wait another 6 months or another year to start this program. Do it now. Do it for you. It’s the biggest and best investment you can do for yourself.

"I joined the coaching mastermind to understand how to be an entrepreneur and to determine which business venture I will pursue to have a sweet life."

I was challenged with a lack of vision, fear of failure, not knowing what to do and not believing in myself. I received so many benefits like, encouragement, direction, understanding purpose, leadership skills and confidence. I learned to create and go after your happiness, and remove things that are not beneficial to reaching your goal. I discovered that I hold the key to my success. I must have confidence in myself and my craft. Constantly second guessing yourself will create doubt and lack of movement. Celebrate the wins and learn the power of saying No!!! 

Kristie is an awesome spirit whose goal is to help you live the life that you are destined to live. What I like best about working with Kristie is her ability to change the way you think. Kristie always sees the glass as half full versus half empty. Even on your darkness day Kristie always can find a way to brighten it and encourage you to keep pressing on.

Create Your Sweet Life is a great program to jump start any goal you have in life. CYSL will help you confront the barriers that is prohibiting you from taking the leap of faith in pursuing your dreams.

"I joined Create Your Sweet Life because I wanted to figure out what kind of career change I wanted to make. I realized I didn’t want to be in IT and I wasn’t feeling excitement for the jobs I was applying for. I didn’t know exactly where I was going and needed guidance."

I had just lost my job and very much dealing with the dragons of anxiety and depression. I was in survival mode and couldn’t see the future because I was just trying to make it through the day. I wasn’t myself—the things you’d take your identity from, didn’t exist.

I received many benefits from the program like being able to look forward, getting those steps to start dreaming and writing, making goals again, planning for those years in the future and getting that career focus. I have steps to know what I want to do to change my career and have guidance when I have questions on what the next steps are. There’s lots of advice and having the advantage of having others in the mastermind group. There’s a wealth of knowledge just being in the community, not just with Kristie, but the other Sweet Lifers have something to bring too.  I turned and made a mindset that I’m a warrior and I’ve been reminded of that warrior mentality and moving forward.

In the very beginning I wanted to see myself as a warrior in the face of fear and challenges. Sometimes I just needed to talk it out and with Kristie’s method on facing adversity, you realize what you can and can’t control. I was able to dream again and also create that road map. I knew where I wanted to go and I may have gotten there, but it would’ve taken way longer and a lot more difficult if you don’t have somebody to help you out. A coach isn’t necessarily there to help you do something you can’t do on your own, but to give you the guidance and support to do what you can do. Being able to pick up and move twice and still live over a thousand miles away from my family and to be on my own and take all the challenges in stride. When you see things coming up, learning how to take a step back and take another look at it. I’ve learned to keep the focus on what I can control. I also learned to just do that next step and keep moving, keep that momentum going, it’ll get easier.

Kristie is full of energy and has a listening ear and asking questions, not necessarily telling you what to do. She asks questions to make you think and push. If your action items aren’t quite there, she asks “What could you do?” She makes you think.

I like the fact that we work in a community especially because I’m very much the connector type. The fact that Kristie set up a community is great. We can cheer each other on and there some things that we all have in common. There are ways that we can relate so it’s not like with someone who’s not familiar with things, like in the corporate world and just life in general. 

I would recommend you hire a coach and particularly Kristie. She’s full of energy and she’s really passionate about this. She really wants you to succeed, she’s there and she really cares about you. What makes this great is she makes sure you know who you are and everything is based off that. We talk a lot about our core values and why we make certain  decisions. She wants to make sure you reach your dreams and goals. This program is for somebody who wants to better themselves and get to the next level and to want to do it well, so you can get it done correctly the first time. You learn how to enjoy your life and not just live day by day.

One of the best things about the community is not only does Kristie believe in you, but we all believe in you. If you need some belief in your life — you know you want to do something, but you need some belief behind you — THIS is for you!

"I worked with Kristie because I wanted to be more true to myself by aligning my life purpose with goals and accomplishments."

Also I wanted to be highly productive and stick to my goals more. Working with Kristie enabled me to be high achiever, find my life purpose, be more specific in selecting my goals and achieve them faster. I realized that perfectionism is the enemy of achievement. I also figured out that I have to find grace in all difficulties I’m facing and to accept myself more in order to achieve my goals. She was very insightful. 

I REALLY like Kristie’s positive energy — her ability to lift other people up is unique. I would be motivated to achieve more every time I met with her. Also I like how she’s always approachable and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this program. Kristie follows a robust method to help others reach higher and become a better person. Anyone who would like to pursue personal development or want to be a high achiever and live a happy life should join this program.

When you have someone by your side who works at the intersection of purpose, leadership and performance — you win! Her strong passion to help you achieve success paired with a sense of accountability and motivation is your ticket to a more fulfilling life.

What to look for in a coaching program

Get your results quicker

If you were a budding basketball player teaching yourself how to play for the first time, would you be more successful figuring it out on your own, or hiring a coach to teach you the right techniques right from the beginning? Sure, you could go at it alone if you were interested in taking the slow, painful route. A good coach won’t just ask you questions on how you’re doing, they’ll guide you, show you an entirely new perspective, share every resource and tool they have and most of all suggest ways to avoid pitfalls and challenges. If you’d rather achieve your ideal life sooner than later, hiring a reputable coach is the quickest, most efficient and many times most economical path.

Provides long lasting transformation

Beware of programs promising life-changing results overnight or even in a few days. Creating a successful life isn’t a mathematical equation that can be solved by doing one thing — it takes time to craft what you want it to look like and then make it happen. It requires accountability, solid mindset, consistency and many other aspects. Look for programs that offer additional guidance after your initial program is finished. If they’re truly interested in your success, they’ll have ways you can continue making a life you love.

Tailors to your needs

You are NOT a cookie cutter human — you’re unique with unique needs, goals and dreams. We offer a proven system, but it was designed specifically to align with and support our client’s largest aspirations. Have something specific you want to achieve? Then let’s make it happen! A program that only teaches one way of doing things closes you off from too many opportunities.

Offers proven system

When you’re working on life-changing transformation, a road map isn’t just a good idea, it’s crucial! A solid coaching program will offer a step-by-step method that should be easy to follow, not complicated. The system shouldn’t just be stagnant either. It should constantly change and grow to its clients needs just like everything else in life.

Works around your schedule

Our programs were built for professionals by professionals. We know how busy life gets with its many obligations and wonders. But we also know that’s why you’re here — to create a more balanced and ideal life. With remote work, hybrid work and companies operating in several time zones, without flexibility, the program won’t be effective.

What’s at stake?

The entire purpose behind our company is to guide others in creating a successful and balanced leadership life they love. 

Too many people are lamenting as to why they didn’t go for their big goals. They didn’t go for the promotion, they didn’t open that business, they didn’t delve into non-profit work, they just didn’t make that jump to more fulfillment. Unfortunately the number of people who are giving up on pursuing their dream life is increasing. The problem is they don’t feel supported, they’re afraid, they don’t know where to start or they just lack the direction on what they really want.   

If you’re one of those people, we’re here for you, but only if you make that jump. We pride ourselves on going as fast as our clients want to go and helping them every step of the way. We’ll help you crush that fear, provide the clarity you’re craving and most of all you’ll wonder why you didn’t do this sooner. Don’t wait until the “perfect time” or when you feel “ready”. Those are myths that keep you stuck. There will never be an exactly perfect time to pursue your goals and do we ever feel 100% ready to do anything that can change our life?

Be one of those people who say “I’m so ecstatic I did it!” rather than the ones who say “I wish I had…” Now is your time.

Let’s talk about your current challenges, goals and what we can do to create that ultimate life you’ve been craving for too long. Book your free strategy session now.
