Matters Of The Heart
Tina’s journey to happiness began with her desire to have a fulfilling family life, while building a successful Coaching practice helping others. Tina Craig is your Single Parent/Executive “go to” CTA Certified Life Coach now, but she didn’t start out there. Professionally, she has held positions in the Automobile Industry in Public Relations/Website Management, CSI, CCM, and Sales C.C. Training. Before Tina rejoined the workforce full time, she was a married, stay at home mother of three with a home “creative stamping” business. (remember those)
She has been a student of Coach Training Alliance, Tony Robbins, Martha Beck, Rita Davenport, and Mike Dooley, and continues to educate herself in new theory/techniques of inspiration, questioning and coaching. “I think expanding your knowledge is the spice that fires up daily living. “Believe it or not, although diverse, each of these life experiences and “jobs” provided ample learning opportunities for coaching and were the stepping stones to finding where her true heart lay. As a Single Parent for the last 12 years, Tina is savvy in the ways this world puts limitations and expectations on us all, Moms or Dads. Tina relates, “We work hard to provide stability for our children and fear sometimes drives us….which can actually drive us further from our dream life and personal goals!” “I do believe we can have it all!” Tina helps her clients uncover and remove the blockages that can make clients feel “stuck”, so that they can shift forward to the next level. Tina’s belief, understanding and personal realization is that, “You cannot offer the best of you to anyone or any position, until you have belief in yourself and find value in what you do!”
From her own personal and professional experiences, Tina understands that many men and women have been stepped over or tossed aside in some way or another on their path through life, the result of which has left them either with low self-esteem, losing their true identity, or forgetting that their needs and desires do matter. Tina shares, “At times, trauma or transition can spin us into a stand still! For instance, my huge move from Colorado to North Carolina, or when my fiancée past away due to a sudden accident…both were traumatic. I became stuck looking backwards, rather than forward. Tomorrow didn’t exist. It took some strong exploration and motivation to pull me through that time, and start forming and focusing on my new path. A Coach would have been helpful. That’s why I have such a passion to be there for others, because I know what would have helped me shift into a positive position quicker.” Realizing that the most difficult part of change is the decision to take the first step, Tina partners up with her clients so they have someone to take step #1 with. They no longer have to feel alone or frustrated. Acting sometimes as the cheerleader, sometimes as sounding board and sometimes as an accountability monitor, she helps client’s reach personal success. This partnership empowers her clients to create positive shifts in their lives. Coach Tina- “My ability to talk from and to the heart, often has my clients saying, ‘I feel so comfortable with you…I feel like I’ve known you forever.’ I take great pride and satisfaction in that!”Enjoy the Shift!
