Inspiration & Expert Advice on What Matters Most

In Career, coaching, News on August 26, 2019 at 12:21

I remember the excitement of going back to school. Summer breaks were too long for the girl who missed her friends, who would read her academic books before the academic year started, and who loved “saving” money buying used books around town.

In our thirties, even though we might not be in school nor campus anymore, even if you don’t have kids going back to school, and as many fun BBQ meals, trips, friends and family gatherings, patio and pool days as we can pack between Memorial Weekend and Labor Day, we can definitely crave the momentum of this time of the year. I miss my rituals, I miss my coachees, I miss You.

The end of the summer season marks a new beginning. Fall is approaching and it brings the last quarter of the year.

How would you like to end your year? What could support you to get there? Would you benefit from having a partner who would walk with you towards your personal and professional goals?

I would be honored to be that partner. I am a bilingual Certified Professional Coach by the University of Miami, an Accredited Program by the International Coach Federation.

Give coaching a try, please contact me to schedule a session now.

Looking forward to coaching you,

Laura

It Takes a Village

In Career, coaching, Entrepreneurs, Family, Lifestyle, motherhood, Relationships on September 10, 2018 at 15:43

By Laura Sgroi

I have always loved being around of people. I enjoy chosen solitude and the silence and focus resulting from isolation, but I thrive in company.

In my thirties, I have confirmed that once again. From the support received on this blog/book project since day one to my most recent endeavors, the people around me have been vital in each case.

One of the best examples is going back to work now that I am a mom.

DSC_3418

Any mom will tell you that your career takes on all kinds of new challenges once you’re balancing it with raising a child.

After having my first baby, I gave myself an average time for maternity leave (USA, we need to work on that asap) and pursued the opportunity to get back to work. I started pushing 4-month old Luca in a stroller to meetings, group coaching and events locally and away from home, even abroad. My sister Amy has held him while I have gotten my hair and nails done by the Nica ladies at the Spa in Miami Shores for my first Vision Board Workshop as a coach.

While I am building my public speaking and coaching career, my days in entertainment aren’t completely over (when work calls, I answer)–but they are different. I have been self-employed working as a TV & Events production management freelancer for sixteen years.

The first production gig was an eye-opening experience. I chose an “easy” show. Pre-production from home, pushed the stroller to an information talk during a volunteer recruiting event at a college close to home and then prepared to leave my baby (3 days shy of turning 4 months) with my sister, whose wonderful boss gave her a day off so she could take care of him.

I left breast milk, three different brands of milk formulas, multiple bottles and nipples, clothes, diapers, wipes, toys, and instructions including local police contact info. As I drove to the venue, I was surprised to feel so at peace leaving my child for the first time. I knew he was in great hands.

I arrived a few minutes late (working on that, can’t even blame the child) and started rolling. Only a couple hours had passed when I got a text from my sister. She asked me to come back home and pick them up because my son didn’t want to take the bottle. I told the closest members of the team that I had to step out, took one hour to drive back home, fed him, and then drove them back with me for another hour (luckily Miami’s lovely traffic had not officially started at that time, but the event was on the opposite side of the city).

That was only the beginning of three long days of work with my child onsite. My sister stayed in a dressing room with no windows or electronics for two, 10+ hours days, babysitting her nephew so I could make some money. My husband came on the third day and did the same.

So many things are still going through my head about that experience: For brief moments, I felt like an actress with my family entourage on set, breastfeeding during taping breaks. I felt grateful to have the support and flexibility of my blood and work families to do that. I felt sad and frustrated for the millions of women who don’t have access to childcare (or elderly care), which takes away their financial freedom and keeps them out of the workforce and even society. We need to be intentional and active about this.

“It takes a village to raise a child”. Yes, it does. It takes a family, a community, and a village. And I am beyond blessed to have it all while I keep working to find and nurture you, my tribe.

Thank You All.

Grateful,

Laura

Meet My Health Coach Beth Hill and her Project Healthy Body

In Career, coaching, Entrepreneurs, Family, Giving Back=Paying It Forward, Health, Lifestyle, motherhood, News, wellness on August 11, 2018 at 08:40

As a life and business coach, it’s my duty to not disclose any information obtained during the course of the coaching relationship without the express permission of the client. But I reserve the right to brag about their success!

My first coaching client: Beth Hill, Certified Holistic Health Coach

My first coaching client: Beth Hill, Certified Holistic Health Coach

Beth Hill is a Certified Holistic Health Coach and she was my first steady client while she was launching her business. My first coachee ever. She will always have a special place in my heart because of that, and also because of how much she helped ME.

I was struggling with a hormonal imbalance for over a year, and after seeing three different doctors, I did not know what else I could try (more on that soon). I started working with Beth remotely; she took the time to go over my health history, and started giving me valuable advice from nutrition to relaxation techniques. She inspired me to try some new things and helped me become more mindful about my lifestyle & habits from grocery shopping to meal planning and time management. Her flexibility and understanding made our sessions possible within my ever-changing schedule. I am thrilled to share with you that my hormones are now under control and I was able to conceive naturally four months after we started our program. Beth then helped me with my pregnancy nutrition and I will be forever thankful for this gift of a lifetime.

This why I trust her and I am happy to share her with you. She is now a team member of the Project Healthy Body: A five-month journey toward discovering the healthiest YOU! On weekly calls, they will talk about whole, real foods, hydration and movement, but more importantly, they will explore self-care, self-love, body acceptance, gratitude and being present and showing up to live your best life.

Project Healthy Body is about designing a foundation that will carry you through a healthy life filled with energy and vitality. It is rooted in self-love, healthy lifestyle choices, resilience, gratitude, education, and a growth mindset.

The ideal Project Healthy Body participant is someone who is ready to break-up with the scale, never diet again, and who simply wants to feel and look better! They are looking for women who have decided their current circumstances are no longer acceptable, and they are motivated and inspired to be the best version of themselves.

Is that you?

If yes, please contact Beth at beth@projecthealthybody.com. They have only one spot left!

Cheers to your health!

Laura
