Episode #101 – Finding your soul’s calling after motherhood
Question of the Day: “My oldest child is going off to college in the fall. I’ve got two more teens following soon, and I’m a wreck. I have LOVED being a mom. I’m excited for them but so sad for me. I feel like I found my calling in motherhood. How do you find purpose after raising kids?”
To help me answer this question, I’ve asked the brilliant Bev Barnes to join me today.
Bev Barnes M.S., is a Master Life Coach, Coach Mentor and Coach Instructor. She’s the creator of the Soul’s Calling® Roadmap process & the Soul’s Calling® Coach & Facilitator training.
Bev works with smart, empathic, women who have a calling, but they aren’t sure what their calling is, or how to get there, from where they are now. Their real problem however is that they’re used to fitting in, and their calling will force them to stand out and be seen, and that terrifies them.
Bev helps these women face their fears, get seen & claim their soul’s calling. She offers intensive courses, mentoring, training & retreats to help women get from where they are now, to where they want to be.
Bev holds a master’s degree in Psycho-education, and graduate training in career counseling and brief & strategic therapy. She has worked in the corporate world, in the education sector, and extensively with First Nations communities in northern Quebec.
If you feel like you found your soul’s calling through motherhood and worry about life after the empty nest, this is the perfect podcast for you!
I love that I got a chance to be coached by Bev about what part of parenting I’m most proud of and what it means. I’ve been asking everyone that question and it’s fascinating to hear the variety of answers.
