I met dawn the summer of 2015. A friend in Whistler suggested I attend her Dream Big Workshop and I was so excited! I was new to the village and was struggling with a new move, my home business, and feeling strong enough to lead my family and fit in “me time”. Our first meeting before the workshop was full of emotions. I was ready to make some big changes but didn’t really know where to start or exactly how lost I was. Dawn helped me break down some walls so I was ready to take on the workshop head on! After the workshop and some more time chatting with Dawn I felt my vision for my business was more clear, I realized how important it was to find time for myself, and that I could reach any goal I put in front of me. I continue to work on my vision, and with Dawn’s amazing support I know there’s nothing I can’t handle. I would highly recommend her coaching and workshops to anyone looking to delve deeper into their creative minds and anyone who wants more from life in any form.
When I signed up for Dawn's Dream Big workshop I was in a really comfortable place. I had been in business for about 5 years and with a lot of hard work I was in a place that already exceeded my expectations. I knew it was time for some inspiration to figure out what my next step would be. I came away with some valuable insight about myself, fears and blocks. Dawn helped to break down all those seemingly insurmountable obstacles to little bite sized baby steps. Within a few weeks things just seemed to fall into place and opportunities presented themselves unexpectedly. While I'm happy to be the type who can be comfortable and grateful for what they have, I'm thrilled to have the tools now to give myself permission to let my imagination run wild with what the future could hold.
I loved meeting you and felt your warm and caring nature right away, so I knew that Nicole would feel comfortable working with you. I also like that you suggested a short 15 minute intro with her, just in case she wasn't open to connecting with you, and saving me spending $$ if this wasn't a process that would help Nicole. I appreciated your feedback after the session, about how well she did, how much she dug deep and opened up to look at what she really wanted in the next stage of her life, and given how emotional that can be, how exhausted she would feel. I therefore had the heads up that she would feel drained, and so wasn't surprised, when she came home and went to bed. You communicated with me every step of the way about the process in this manner, and I appreciated that. Seeing Nicole's confidence as a result of meeting with you, was fabulous as well, given she really didn't know what she wanted to do, but having met with you, she knew her passions, and knew what she wanted to prioritize, moving forward.
I have been on a journey of self discovery for years. Looking to uncover what it is I truly want for my life and for the life for my two gorgeous boys. Before I attended a Dream Big workshop, I'd made vision boards, read ALOT of what I came to call 'Fix your head' books. I filled my tool box with awesome tools. I felt good knowing I had them, would use them for awhile and then slide back into old patterns. In the workshop I wrote on big piece of paper HOME. In each letter I wrote how it would feel to have my own home, what would be possible for myself and my boys, what would there be more of and how would I be. H - happiness O - own M - mine E - enough. During the session Dawn asked questions to help with the clarity of the vision, I was encouraged to look at it deeper than ever before. 2 weeks later I had the keys to a gorgeous one bedroom apartment. Room for myself, my boys and all we could ever need. Taking the time to really look at what I wanted and to get it down on paper, meant the vision was clear, the desires were true, the intention was set and now all that left was action. An apartment door opened and my belief in creating all I ever want was fueled. Hello great big life, I plan to build you one piece a paper at a time! Dream big and let Dawn show you how doors can open where you never thought they ever could!
I feel good that some doors are open for different decisions and less stressed about what I want to do. You definitely help people open up and help them say what they've wanted to say for a while.
When I went to Dawn's workshop, I was pretty broken, I was also embarrassed because all I did was cry during the workshop, I could not think of ANYTHING good about myself or what was possible. However, the little voice in my head, there is something more. The workshop made me realize that change HAD to happen. The following months brought the end to many things, the end of my son living with me, the end of an 8 year old relationship. On the flip side, I was able to see that these were really beginnings. The first beginning was my son, starting his post - secondary education , the second was the beginning of me living on my own for the first time in my life. Dawn's workshop made me see how much I had lost myself and how much I needed to be brave and change my circumstances. It became very clear to me at the workshop that I was stuck and I was broken. I had allowed my self worth, to be taken by others. It is not always easy to make changes, but it is important to make changes when you lose who you are. I am starting to feel good about the person, I always have been. I still am unsure about many things, but the workshop helped me see that I needed to get back to finding my worth inside of me not outside through other people's desires. I made two different vision boards, one for health and fitness and the other for my mental health and well being. Remember, that you have survived 100% of everything you have gone through, so I am pretty sure you will get through this too I also choose to not just survive, but am working on allowing myself to thrive. Big love to all!
