Some 25 years ago, I left the firm where we had worked together to start my own business.  It was very scary, because I owned a house and had two kids in college at the time.  When I left, you sent me a card that had the following quote on its cover:

“My barn having burned down, I can now see the moon.”
— Mizuta Masahide (17th century Japanese poet and samurai)

 I saved the card, and in fact, it has been an inspiration to me ever since.  My first attempt at my own business failed, and I had to take on another corporate job to support my family.  But 19 years ago, as I was cleaning drawers in my office, I found your card again.  A few months later, in 2000, I started my own business again, and I’ve never once been less than 100% billable since.  I have never looked back, and I have succeeded at more than I’d ever thought I was capable of accomplishing.

 I found your card again this week, and just had to reach out to tell you that you were an inspiration to me 25 years ago, and have been ever since.  Your encouragement and guidance has been such a gift to me, as I am sure it has been to many others over the past years!

Ann had an amazing ability to know just what questions to ask, what statements to make, to create a huge shift in my perceptions. By doing so, she got me to a place of rapid deep change and helped me to open up and to move forward in a completely new direction that has brought so much more joy and fulfillment into my life.  I could have never made such a dramatic shift, so quickly, without Ann’s guidance and assistance.

I started coaching with Ann at the beginning of a great personal and professional transition.  I needed support through the process, and Ann was put in my path.  More than 2 (3?) years and 3,000 miles later, my life looks nothing like I could have imagined.  I have re-invented myself and am growing an amazing new business practice.

Coaching helped me by clarifying my values — a process that is central to decisions about how to spend life’s precious time — and by keeping me focused on goals.  It was also a way to see new possibilities that I hadn’t considered.

Coaching deepened my understanding of the importance of staying in the moment and helped me find clarity. Ann Vanino is a master of asking powerful questions and in that process, I learned to listen to myself and honor my feelings.
