Meet Meg Ross – Active Member of the Creative Class

I was recently rehired by a very young, creative, undaunted entrepreneur. Her name is Meg Ross and she currently resides in NYC.

Few people have come into my practice with as much natural grit and tenacity as she. I’ll let Meg explain how she returned to coaching (see below).

If you are young, ambitous and relentlessly seeking huge dreams, you’ll probably find Meg’s on-going story facinating.

When I worked with Lyn in the past I was empowered to make smart decisions. Lyn’s motivation and energy helped me to finish a $4million project. After I completed that task I needed to recoup and began shifting my focus on my personal life instead of business.

Consequently I stopped working with her because just getting “life coaching” from Lyn didn’t seem necessary.However, I realized not only that I really missed having her support and input but that I could have really used it when making that life-focus shift.

I’m back. I want a partner in life as I take on some of my life-long dreams again and Lyn serves as that person for me.  She supports me in a way so I see who I am, what I am great at and when I need to be less hard on myself.  I am in a better space when I work with her as my coach both personally and within my business decisions. Her influence assists me to use my strength.

I am excited about my future and my potential.  I am truly excited about the ideas that get flushed out when I work with Lyn and I know with no uncertain terms that I will be be successful with her in my corner. When I’m getting coached by Lyn my family, friends and all those around me benefit as well.

Let’s see where Meg’s coaching takes us.

 

 

SoulSalt Inc. Honors Fran Brown as Philanthropist of the Year

Lyn presenting Fran "Philanthropist Of The Year" award.

Being a philanthropist is synonymous with being a humanitarian, a do-gooder, an altruist. In its most simple form, it is sharing.

And the value of what is shared is often not found in the amount or measure of the gift.

The value of what is given is often determined by the one receiving.

I bring this topic up because I have been greatly honored by a simple and quiet act of philanthropy.

On September 9th of 2010 at 7:00 p.m., I stood outside a conference room on the U of U campus. I was about to speak at the Salt Lake Jung Society.  I was reviewing my notes and getting grounded when a former client Fran Brown approached with her daughter Jenn.

Fran gave me a hug, a nod of encouragement for the speech and then handed me a book elegantly wrapped in a huge purple ribbon with a card attached.

Later that night, upon opening the card, I found a check for $200.00. Fran wanted me to know that she would be cheering me on for my upcoming sprint triathlon. This race marked my first competitive athletic event for about three decades.  I entered the race as an exercise to face off with my fear of drowning. She was offering me “sponsorship” as I competed against my nemesis.

Can you imagine the magnitude having a “sponsor” is when you’re not racing for prize money? For me the impact bubbled like sparkling soda through my veins. I was inspired by her gigantic gesture.  Her gift said to me: “I believe in you. I recognize your journey, your growth and your great desire to meet this huge goal.”

On race day some athletes were bedecked with sponsor emblems, other’s rode bikes, wore shoes or wetsuits provided by name brands. I on the other hand carried what I considered the best sponsor of all in my heart.

Fran Brown, you are a tiny woman powered by ten tons of goodness.  You are our SoulSalt Philanthropist of the Year.
