Host Katrina Burrus asked Dr. Besty Cole, “What is your life purpose?” Betsy answered to help people learn, grow and have fun in the process”. I use a lot of somatic and mindfulness coaching. Most recently, “I stand for the vitality of life that lives within us and longs to be connected to one’s life purpose”.
What was your biggest failure? – Divorce from first husband, with 2 small children, no career, no money and no idea what I would do to support myself and my children.
A life changing career workshop – got me on the road to my life purpose, and fueled my passion to help others to do the same.
What is your current work focusing on? “After a corporate career, and a coaching career focused on technical leaders in bio-pharma space; I am now focusing my career and energy on helping others discover their life purpose, and to see more possibilities and work with more passion, power and purpose in their lives.
What is your ideal client? “People who are open, curious, and interested in learning and growing. People who are either starting or continuing to deepen their own developmental journey are also my ideal client.
