After having this blog for over 7 years and working on it from time to time, I finally know what it is about. It is about me! Well Duh Coach. I know but it has just taken me that long to really realize it.
So this is my personal blog, about me, about my struggles, about me trying to figure things out, it is me being vulnerable. I can coach, and I know I am really good at it. What I don’t know is how to make a full time independent living from it. I think there are a lot of us who are in the same situation.
I like my job, I wouldn’t say I love it, but I like it. It is a great job. I spend my days helping, mentoring, coaching, and teaching teachers. It is great. There are just a few things that I really don’t like. So when I ask myself is it all worth it? I have a hard time honestly saying yes. It looks something like this:
- Working with Adults
- Making a difference in youth lives
- A great staff
- Having time to research issues and find solutions
- THE PAY
- Having to work from 8-3 whether I have work to do or not.
- Having the Central Office put restraints on what we can do.
- The pay
- Not being able to expand out of the school system
- Knowing there is far more to cover in life
- Knowing I can contribute much more
- Not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel as far as retirement is concerned
- Not enough time for myself
I am sure that some of you have the same dislikes about your job. The pay sucks. But I knew that going into it. What the feeling that I didn’t know would come is the feeling of unworthiness. Or to put it in a positive light, I am worth more than this little paycheck. It is a slap in the face every time I get it.
I also spend a lot of time doing things I don’t want to do. And it is not just a matter of doing something that I don’t like but something that I don’t like that has no payoff in the end. I can do things that I don’t like when I know there will be a payoff. However there are a lot of things that I do in my job that are senseless, useless, and have no payoff. Just a waste of my valuable time.
I could go on and on but hopefully you get the gist of it. So now what.
I am redesigning BryanKipke.com to turn it into the portal where individuals can be coached by me. I am also creating a program to train coaches. I would like to make Life Coaching Certifications standardized so that people all over the world will know who to trust and who has had proper education on what coaching people is all about.
Lastly I am creating a new type of school. More information will come on this later but I am planning on totally disrupting education in a very good way.
So from now on just expect this site to be a muse of mine. To write when I need to. To express my feelings, my struggles, and my successes. It will be completely experimental and hopefully fun.
