Krystel Renee began coaching people as a fifteen year old teen, before she even knew what life coaching was. “As a young teen my dad made me enter beauty pageants, and I despised him for it,” recalled Krystel. She wanted to do martial arts, but her father wanted her to participate in more feminine activities. “So to 'stick it to the man' - my father - I would coach my competition and help them build confidence with their talents, all while doing their hair and makeup. My goal was to help these girls win, so he would quit making me compete.” It wasn't until her divorce occurred in 2013 that she discovered the life coaching program at SWIHA, and realized “I could get paid for this natural gift that I have and actually help more people!”
Krystel’s niche clientele are those that are struggling with PTSD and depression, or “those who have just lost the joy or sense of purpose in their life.” She also coaches a lot of military personnel and their families, as well as women in their 30's -50's. Krystel’s favorite life coaching tool is the Wheel of Balance. She shared how she enjoys “helping people gauge where they are at in all areas of their life and to help them finely focus on areas they want to be better.” In addition to coaching, she utilizes chakra balancing, neuro-kinesis, and laughter techniques to help her clients restore joy in their lives.
Her passion for life coaching is driven by witnessing her clients undergo a major transformation, and ultimately, break free from a long-term rut. “Sometimes it appears as just a little change, a small sparkle in their eye, better body posture, or a slight laugh. Some breakthroughs happen in one session, others take more.”
“Dance in the mystery," is Krystel’s most cherished quote from her life coaching experience. “You don't know what you don't know. There are mysterious forces working in the background that you are unaware of that are conspiring in your favor. I believe this with all my heart.”
If Krystel could tell a prospective life coach one thing, it would be that “coaching others is a deeply rewarding career choice… when you give a session to a client, you are also receiving a session. Our own messes tend to find resolution in the "A-ha" moments that we experience along with our clients.”
Krystel advises that the key to making life coaching profitable lies in “growing your network and giving acts of kindness to the public while you are out prospecting for new clients. Being client centered and actively listening to people is huge.”
