HELLO! I’m Karen Sullivan.
You want to live on the edge, trust me you do…it’s not crowded out here. And the view is beautiful!
It all about living on the edge: rushing to the place where consciousness meets energy, and choice meets personal greatness; the outermost boundaries where fears, ruts, ‘the run around, and even complacency are called out, challenged, and banished. On the edge there’s no time for nonsense, BS, or fake facades. It’s where we rally to get real, roll up our sleeves, and jump inside the work to be great, not good. Yes, real. We aren’t hiding behind the buzzword of the day: authentic. I’m talking real.
You’re a little flat right now. You were energized. You had the eye of the tiger (cue Rocky music). You were moving full steam ahead. Then you arrived ‘there’, wherever that may be. And now you’re still there. You didn’t know where you wanted to go…and you’re there in the ‘I don’t know wheres-ville: Congrats on making the ‘I don’t know’ work for you..or does it…? It’s not a bad place. Actually, it’s a good place. The only problem is, good is not your great. You want more. You’re wondering “what now?” “what’s next?” “is this all there is?”
You’re ready to bust out of “the middleness” shackles that have you handcuffed to ‘just okay’ or ‘good enough’. You know the you can’t think, you can’t move, you can’t act.
And I can do that…bust you out…or at least unlock the handcuffs. I am a retired police chief, after all.
So I did the unthinkable. I broke out (Yep, I’m a little non-traditional that way). Broke out and ditched the titles, promotions, and the perfect little box of ‘shoulds’. I replaced it all with my wants. I wanted freedom, flexibility and to help people get honest + into action. Above all I wanted to love my life. Being the take action gal that I am – I well, took action and started to walk towards the edge.
I attended an ICF Accredited Professional Coaching School and it rocked my world. I was inspired and blown away. Jack pot! I totally found my ‘what now’. I discovered I really loved helping people every day consciously create their ideal life. (BTW, consciousness isn’t just cool it’s, powerful.)
So that’s why I’m here.
To help full potential, self-initiators, ‘committed-to-the-process’ coaches elevate their lives from good to great by coaching them out from middle-of-the-pack syndrome (a la Jan Brady) to expand + operate in their next level of greatness, amazing-ness, boldness, ass-kicking-ness – you pick the word…it’s your life.
I can do this because I’m fearless, bold, compassionate and results-driven, for you – with you.
Part straight forward, part fun-loving + a whole lotta living on the edge.
I’m about stepping up to the plate, X’ing out the BS, and driving right up to the answers & actions that will change your life, while having fun along the way. If it’s not a “hell yeah!” then I’m not doing it.
Through my own transition and self discoveries I’ve come face-to-face with who I am now, the real me. Someone who is less guarded, open, and fully experiencing emotions. Someone who is curious and vulnerable. I’m not hunting for a panic button or a door marked ‘exit’. I’m excited and revved up at the endless possibilities available when you push the borders. And I want you to know this feeling…in fact, you’ll want to develop a new intimate relationship with this feeling.
So what do you get when you mix 25+ years of being a cop with countless hours of training and coaching and tireless commitment to people and community?
A whole lot of Smart & Heart sprinkled with sass, brass, and a smart ass. I’m a coach who will hold your hand while kicking your ass. You’ll thank me for it later!
I’m flooring the gas, speeding 1,000 mph across the world, training people to get real with themselves so they can coach others to do the same. I have trained hundreds of coaches on the skills, competencies, tools, and all that is needed to be the best in the field.
I’ve stretched the hell out of myself by busting out of a comfort zone, and I can do that for you too! I have a bit of alphabet soup behind my name…M.A., CPC, ELI-MP, and PCC. I take my education seriously and I have over two thousand practical hours of calling people on their BS.
As an ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC Coach), I rock out my intuition; ask bold questions; and I have the fearlessness to call you on your crap.
You ready to ride along?? Let’s Go!
