Some additional bits and pieces.
SouperPower is my free + fun pet project! This is why I started it.
SouperPower started because everywhere I looked I saw major problems.
Problems that made me feel small and powerless. Problems that made me feel inadequate in my ability to make a real difference. I wanted to help solve these big problems, but didn’t feel empowered to do so… they just felt too big.
So I decided to start with something I know and love. So I took myself through a little life coaching tool and realized that 3 of my favorite things are cooking, especially with others, writing and feeling like a part of a community. This made me wonder how I could combine all 3 and it was from this wondering that SouperPower was born. I realized I could make a difference by connecting through the simple act of making soup.
Ends up a growing body of research supports my concept... happiness is directly correlated to our ability to connect to our family, our community, our world and ourselves.
SouperPower is designed to help you do just that.
I’m a relationship coach because my dream job as a lounge singer was nipped in the bud early in life by my overwhelming lack of ability to hit the right note.
Prior to venturing into the world of entrepreneurship, I worked in the nonprofit world, focusing on equal rights and community relationship issues.
I’m a big picture thinker and don’t exactly ignore details… I’m just drawn to the big picture first.
I’ve taken a lot of assessments over the years and according to the Kolbe assessment, I’m a high fact finder and quick start. The VIA Me lists love of learning and curiosity as two of my top strengths. According to Myers Briggs I’m an INFP and on the Strengths Finder my top 5 strengths are in the strategic thinking category.
What all that confirms is I like big ideas, am forever curious and connect the dots with ease.
Lucky for me those traits are the DNA of a good coach… one who sings loudly and proudly in the car!
