April was one intense month!

There's been a lot going on around here.  Aside from some recent juicy collaborations with other professionals, my family is gearing up for an exciting move back to Boulder, CO.  And although my body is physically moving out of PA, my coaching practice gets to stay.  Fortunately, in this age of technology, there is no shortage of ways to stay connected and engaged in this community of treasured friends, family and clients that aren't physically moving with me.  I look forward to many more years of great collaborative adventures with you all!

THIS MONTH, as a special thank you to my previous and current clients, I am offering a referral special that tops 'em all.   Check out the 'big ticket' item below.  There are incentives for new clients too!

And, in honor of Mother's Day, I am offering special 'Love the One You're With' sessions (that's you by the way). 

Consider this an open invitation for you to engage in the process of learning to love yourself despite the negative situations or old stories that have held you back up until now.   
Water the seeds you wish to bloom,

Stephanie Yost Mentzell, CPCC
Growing Leaders. Organically.

If you've been thinking about receiving individual coaching, now is the time to do so with dramatic savings.

This month, new clients (those who have never worked with me before) who mention this newsletter will receive 1/2 off the first month of coaching through June!

Current clients* have the chance to receive 1/2 off of June coaching with a referral of a new client! 

Your unique impact on your family, your work and your community is too important to not take action.

If you are not currently enjoying a front row seat in your own life, then you won't want to miss this opportunity! 

I am ready!

*current clients are defined as those who have been a client in the past as well as those who currently are receiving coaching in either a group or individual format.

A new seed is faithful.  It roots deepest in the places that are the most empty. - Source Unknown

What are you planting this early spring? 

We have a greenhouse in our backyard that begins to beckon to me around this time of the year.  It is such a great metaphor for what so many of my clients and I seem to be faced with as this season of renewal approaches -the potentiality of new growth and creation.

What is beckoning to you from the far reaches of your busy life to plant?  Perhaps you are contemplating a shift in career due to the uncertainty of these economic times?  Perhaps you have reached a birthday that has you sit up and take notice of the life you still have yet to live, or you may be contemplating a transplant to a new, more fertile physical location?

What I know to be true for any worthwhile endeavor is that we must empty out the old to make room for the new.  The greenhouse must be cleared in order for the new seed trays to be laid out; the seed packets must be organized; and the soil mixed. The piles must be cleared in order to move, the past has to be forgiven in order to grow.

We must clear out the old beliefs, outdated fears and constant chatter that live in us in order to create something new.  We must remember to lean on the wisdom and experience of the other 'gardeners' who have gone before, better equipping us to create a very unique garden (career, transition, relationship) of our own.

What feelings, beliefs, fears do you need to release before you can create what is dying to be born in you?

Who do you need to forgive in order to move on with more freedom?

Who might you need to disappoint in order to plant the seed that will bloom into who you were meant to be?

There is a space that is reserved just for your particular roots. It has only been waiting for you to plant the seed.

Happy Gardening!
Day Special
