You’re a busy professional woman. Everyone around you thinks you’re successful, but sometimes you find yourself wondering “Is this all there is?”
It’s not that you’re afraid of hard work – you worked for years to get where you are. It’s just that no one ever told you it was going to be like this.
You want to have a great career – one that’s challenging and meaningful. And you want to feel confident that you’re maximizing your potential.
But you also want to be true to who you are. You want a great life outside of the office, too. You want to spend time with family and friends, and have the chance to do the things you love.
You don’t just want success – you want to thrive.
I’m Leslie Beale, and I’m a success coach for ambitious women who want to thrive both at work and at home. I help them build their confidence, learn to set the right priorities, and keep perfectionism from running the show, so they can finally find the sense of peace they’ve always wanted.
I’m a no-nonsense coach who meets my clients wherever they are in their busy days with practical, straightforward strategies to build the lives and careers they really want. I only offer tactics and ideas that are designed to get real results for you – not platitudes or empty promises. I’m a certified coach who’s walked in your shoes and knows what it’s like to manage a high-stress career and a busy personal life, all while trying to maintain my sanity.
I know how you feel. I’ve been there, too.
I spent almost fifteen years as a lawyer and executive – at large, national law firms, publicly-traded companies, and high-growth startups.
Everyone around me thought I had made it. I had a great career, a wonderful, supportive husband, and beautiful children. But on the inside, I was a mess. I couldn’t sleep. I was always distracted, and often short-tempered with those who mattered most.
I knew I wasn’t giving my best to any part of my life because I was never really there. When I was at work, I was worried about my family. When I was with my family, I couldn’t stop thinking about work. Everything I did suffered, and I knew I couldn’t live like that forever.
I knew there had to be a better way…and there is.
At a friend’s suggestion, I started taking coaching classes and applying what I learned to my life.
Slowly, I began to realize that I was the only one who had the power to change my reality. I could find a new job, download the latest productivity app on my phone, and read book after book on happiness, but none of it would matter unless I learned how to change what was going on in my head.
I began to really pay attention to the ways I caused my own problems – from hanging onto my perfectionism and fear of failure, to letting my uncertainty and insecurity steal my confidence – and started to take responsibility for solving them. I knew that to overcome them, I had to build my own success mindset – and so I did.
With a little patience, and some practice, I began to see the changes I wanted in my career and my personal life.
I learned to give myself the room to make mistakes and learn from them. I stopped wasting my time worrying and started taking action instead. I prioritized the things that mattered most to me, regardless of what others thought I “should” be doing.
Finally, I began to feel the sense of accomplishment and ease I had been looking for.
You can find your own better way.
I went on to become a certified coach, and today I help professional women take the same journey I did – by finding ways to overcome their perfectionism and worry, build their confidence, and focus on what matters most to them. I use the skills I learned managing teams and developing people in the corporate world to help my clients get clear on their own priorities and build lives and careers that are focused on achieving results that really matter to them.
You can have a great career AND a rewarding personal life and still find the sense of peace you’ve been longing for.
You can find a way to keep perfectionism and worry from running your life. You can have the confidence to tackle everything that comes your way. And, you can find the sense of accomplishment and ease you’ve always wanted. I’d love to help you on that journey.
I am passionately committed to helping professional women build lives and careers that really sustain them so that they can keep offering their best to their families and the world.
