Moving Forward: Kim Fowler

Kim Fowler, Fowler Life Coaching

January is typically the time for New Year’s resolutions. Do you make resolutions? If so, what are yours for 2016?

I typically do make yearly goals for myself. I don’t like to call them resolutions because people often resolve to do something, but don’t have milestones or timelines in place. Goals tend to be more specific and most of us put more thought into them.

My personal goals for 2016 are: Lose 20 pounds by June 30th, travel to a tropical destination by December 31st and remodel my kitchen by October 31st.

What do you like the most about the age you are now?

At this age, I feel more at peace with myself, and I don’t worry about what other people think. I also make more time for what is really important in my life – I have a better perspective on what those things are.

What are three of the nicest things you do for you?

Morning walks, massages and pedicures.

If you took a winter vacation would it be skiing in Telluride or basking on the beach in St. Thomas?

This is a hard one…I don’t ski, so you would think it would be an easy answer, but I do like snow. I sort of miss it down here. I also like to ice skate. However, most of my vacations tend to be in the tropics, so I guess I would have to choose St. Thomas.

Please explain how life coaching can help our readers cope with life’s transitions – a divorce, a death or even learning to live in an empty nest.

Life coaching helps put everything into perspective, helping you overcome your life challenges. If you feel stuck, whether it’s from a death, divorce or other setback, coaching can help. A life coach will guide you through your struggles by helping you see the light at the end of the tunnel, working with you to keep you accountable and helping you reach your goals in all areas of life. I have helped clients who wanted to achieve a lofty dream goal, and I have helped clients who just couldn’t get out of bed in the morning. Everyone can benefit from a life coach, whether they feel like life is okay, but could be better, they have a grand vision for themselves or they just feel like they are spinning their wheels and not accomplishing anything.

I became interested in becoming a life coach in 2001 – I have always been interested in self help and read an article about life coaching. I’ve been through a lot myself and have always felt called to help others make better lives. I graduated from the Fowler Wainwright Institute of Professional Coaching and am certified by the International Association of Coaching (IAC). If your friends come to you for help and advice, that’s usually a sign you’d be a good life coach, even though life coaches don’t tell you what to do. We help guide you and ask questions that lead to finding your own answers. Most of it is already inside you. On my website is a wonderful free eBook to help you get started on the road to a better life, Design the Life You Were Meant to Have.
