I ‘m Debra Smouse and I’m thrilled to meet you!
Having once been a private consultant specializing in project management, employee training, restructuring, and quality assurance, I moved into coaching as a way to impact more lives on a broader and deeper level.
I’ve been coaching since 2006 with some amazing success stories that drive me to wake up each morning with a sense of passion and determination that I can show you how to capture for yourself.
I particularly enjoy working with people who aren’t afraid to drill down deeper, through the muck, to get to the core issues, beliefs and attitudes that can keep them from feeling satisfied about their work or personal life. When this happens, it creates a chain reaction: you fall in love with your life again, which leads to an unprecedented love of your career, and the flood gates of happiness burst open.
I believe that when our personal “baggage” starts to adversely affect our professional lives, it can unleash gremlins determined to sabotage your success when you’re about to have a breakthrough. When the baggage is addressed at the core, then the opposite happens. You start to thrive, things begin to fall into place and life becomes truly joyful in every way.
I’m honored to hold loving space for you as you discover what you really want in life. What you value. What’s important to you. What sets your soul on fire! And since no one likes living in limbo, I’m here to lend a helping hand as you traverse between limbo and into the life of your dreams.
I’ve fine-tuned my own no-holds-barred style of coaching that helps my clients shed those old beliefs, step up to the tee box, and FINALLY feel what it’s like to live in the zone.
I’m a native Texan now living in Ohio, and I hold a Bachelor of Science in Communications and certificates in Project Management (PMP) and ISO 9000 Quality Management. I’m an ENTJ according to MBTI and my Enneagram Type is 2. I love cooking, good wine, and stimulating conversations.
When I’m not coaching, I spend as much time on the golf course as possible, always striving to bring my A game.
And I’d be honored to help you bring yours.
