Unlike many business beginning stories, Radical Spark Coaching began with the surprising reality of a positive pregnancy test at 4 am in a hotel room in Seattle. This new reality combined with the beginning of my coaching training program the same day served as a big kick in the pants for me to embrace the fact that change was afoot.
As I reflected on what was possible with a second kid on the horizon and embracing my newly identified life purpose statement freshly flushed out from my coaching program, Radical Spark Coaching was born. I realized that what brought me joy was being the radical spark that ignites the passion for possibilities for others. With this, I set out to complete my coaching program in record timing that included flying to Canada every month, creating a brand and business model that spoke to my passion and strengths, and sitting for the official International Coaching Federation accreditation test within the time it took to grow the little guy in my belly. It was insane and beautiful at the same time. And with that, Radical Spark Coaching was born in tandem with the arrival of our little Luca. His name, in Italian, means "light", and it seemed perfectly appropriate; he was my own radical spark that helped me see the possibilities.
