Professional Coach – yep, that’s me, too!

“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.” – Tony Robbins

I have always loved learning. When I started bringing my pen and paper everywhere at about three or four years old, I think it was a self-fulfilling prophecy that my heart would be in communications somehow.

And I wrote. And I read.

And this turned into some titles I have held in this lifetime: editor-in-chief, marketer, corporate communications manager, writer, author. This even extended to roles of me that were not really hinged on communications – like being a certified aromatherapist and an APAS advocate.

Somehow, the gift of gab is a talent that gave (and continues to give) me privileges, opportunities, and responsibility.

And now, I add another learning milestone to my arsenal. Something that has kept me sleepless for several nights for months. This always happens when there is call that you need to answer. A call that comes from within.

After four months of training, anxiety, studying, anxiety, actual coaching sessions, anxiety, I have finally graduated and another title: professional coach.

These titles seem nice, of course. But what it really boils down to, all of it (being a brand consultant, and aromatherapist, an author, an APAS advocate, and now, a coach), is becoming more to give something back.

To give clarity and support…

… to entrepreneurs who need it;
… to essential oil users who need it;
… to APAS mommies who need it; and
… to anyone who needs it in their life, in general.

I would like to thank my family back home and to my Mama somewhere, my husband, my kids and our Nanays, for always supporting me in all forms that I need;

To my mentors who have generously shared their knowledge on the gift of coaching – no less than the only ICF Master Certified Coach in the Philippines, Julius C. Ordonez, my mentor, Paui Pueo Del Rosario, and the ever vivacious Adam Noah Paul;

To my peer coaches who are all “WOOOW” in their own fields and all my coaches who have enabled me;

To my coachees who journeyed with me during my practicum (you know who you are);

… And last but not the least, to GOD, for planting these seeds in my heart and giving me the path to make it happen. THANK YOU.

Oh, by the way, hi. I am Balot Amechachura-Del Rosario, professional coach. You know where to reach me Happy Monday, everyone!
