Ditch the (Elevator) Pitch: How to Make a Lasting Impact

If there’s one thing remote professionals do a lot of, it’s network. Especially if you are a remote traveler, you are constantly meeting new people and sharing what you do.

GUEST POST: Insights from 5 Weeks of Remote Work

GUEST POST: Insights from 5 Weeks of Remote Work

Meet Jessica Trainor - a classically trained singer, voice teacher, and Career and Life Coach. She used to underpin this trifecta with a day job. But, she realized that if she kept treating her passions as a hobby (underpinned by a toxic work environment), she would not hit the goals she had for performance and teaching career. She ditched the traditional career path, hasn't looked back for almost a year, and just travelled for five weeks and worked remotely during that time. Here are some initial insights from her time away!

I am very good at simplifying processes to make lives easier - it's a skill I lend my clients on a daily basis. But my life had become too easy.

GUEST POST: My Coaching Experience, by Jessica Trainor

Today, I'm excited to share the 2nd in a series of interviews about coaching, featuring my former client and now apprentice, Jessica Trainor. Jessica is not having your shit, and I love it. She is a whip-smart, fiercely loyal, crazy talented, and a seriously fabulous brain-based coach in the making. A year ago, she was working as an office manager. Today, she is freelancing full-time as an opera singer, voice teacher, and much more while simultaneously training to become Rowan Coaching's next coach. I'm so proud of my clients, and Jessica is no exception! Since I've been training Jessica, I've been really interested to see her perspective transform from client to coach - which is not only something that inspires me, but something from which I learn! In that spirit, I had a few questions for her...
