I have been terrified every day of my life, but that has never stopped me from doing everythingGeorgia O’Keefe
I wanted to do.
My name is Teressa Morris and I want to help you find your joy!
Are You Taking Care of Everyone But Yourself?
Have You Lost Your Joy?
You are not alone.
You may not realize you are looking for a personal development coach, or even a Joy Facilitator. But if you feel weighed down by your own obligations and other people’s expectations, don’t remember the last time you were actually happy, maybe aren’t even sure what would actually make you happy, then working with a personal development coach/Joy Facilitator may be just what you need.
I can help you discover:
- The parts of your life that bring you the most satisfaction.
- How to prioritize your needs and wants.
- Simple routines to make your life easier.
Who is my Ideal Client?
My ideal client is a woman over 45 who has been taking care of everyone else for so long that she has not only forgotten how to take care of herself, she is not even sure what she wants to do with the rest of her life. She is feeling overwhelmed, unfulfilled, and unhappy. But most of all, she is ready for a change.
My services and programs should be a perfect fit for you, if you:
- embrace change
- step out of your comfort zone
- invite accountability.
However, we are not a good fit if you:
- don’t do deadlines
- love excuses
- are not ready to make changes in your life.
Why I Do What I Do
In October 2016, I moved with my husband and son to Oregon from California. The plan was to live with my in-laws until we found jobs and then get our own place. Unfortunately, it took me seven months to find a job. I was fired nine months later. At the same time, I was betrayed by someone who I completely trusted. I completely lost my joy.
Fortunately, I was seeing a therapist. She has been a tremendous help. I realized that our move was a huge culture shock for me. Moving in with my in-laws was also difficult. I kept hoping for a change, but no change happened. Talking to my therapist, I realized that there were small things I COULD control, that would bring me joy, like taking care of myself and setting boundaries.
I enrolled in a coaching certification program, and then went back to college at 51!! I started taking on coaching clients and realized my purpose. My mission is to help women over 45 to plan their joyful futures! Every person is different, so each plan is individualized. I’ve also written a couple of books and authored a couple of courses. I am currently working on a group coaching program and a Virtual VIP Day!
What Makes Me Different
I am an empath. What that means is I feel whatever you are feeling. I can help you navigate the tricky course of finding your joy because I have been where you are and I can feel what you feel.
I have been an entrepreneur for most of my adult life, starting with administrative services, then a brick and mortar, retail golf shop (with my husband), a professional blog, and my current coaching business. In addition, I worked in accounting for over 10 years. I understand what it takes to start a business, and to close one. I love puzzles and finding solutions to problems, like finding your joy!
