    Day in the Life of a Coach and Thought Leader

    Day in the Life of a Coach and Thought Leader

    Have you ever wondered what it’s actually like to be a successful coach and thought leader? 
    In this episode, Karolina is pulling back the curtain and demystifying what a typical day in her life looks like.
    Yes, some days bring the freedom and glamour of sitting on a tropical beach with a laptop, but it’s not an impossible grind, either. More often than not, it’s something in between these two extremes. 
    Now in her sixth year in business, you’ll hear an honest look at how Karolina balances her days, how she maintains healthy boundaries, and what her life looks like when she’s at home vs. when she’s jet setting around the globe. 
    The freedom to work on what she chooses, when she chooses, and where she chooses, is the ultimate gift, and you can have that too!
    If you are curious about starting your own coaching business to help others fulfill their greater purpose, apply now for the Empowered AF Coach Certification, which begins March 28th.
     
    IN THIS EPISODE:
    Freedom vs. security; the pros and cons of starting your own coaching business and balancing this decision with your own values The skills you learn while starting a business – and how these skills can be applicable in so many different avenues, even if you decide to switch paths How Karolina structures meetings each week: the limits she imposes, the kinds of meetings she holds, who she meets with, and the different coaching she offers The strategy side of her business: what it entails, and why it’s Karolina’s favorite part of her work (where her creativity can really shine!) Being intentional about setting up your days so they’re most effective and how this differs while at home vs. traveling Creating boundaries, reaching your human potential, and the difference between coaching (which is future-focused) and therapy (which is past-focused)

    Are Universal Signs Speaking to You? Magic of My Grandma

    Are Universal Signs Speaking to You? Magic of My Grandma

    Have you ever felt the universe was trying to tell you something? 
    Personally, Karolina has received many signs from the universe that seemed almost magical – particularly regarding her late grandmother and the decision to go alcohol-free. These signs have given her comfort and guidance in the path she’s carved out for herself.
    Four days after this podcast airs is Karolina’s 6-year soberversary, which is also the third anniversary of her grandmother’s passing. To some people, it might seem coincidental that these events occurred on the same date, but she finds meaning in this.
    What will the universal signs be for you? How do you know you’re experiencing them? And how can you be open to receiving them? In this episode, Karolina shares insight about the signs the universe has sent her, with the hope that you will find guidance as you embark on your own path.
     
    IN THIS EPISODE:
    Karolina’s family during World War II – some members were taken to concentration camps or murdered; her grandmother was part of the resistance Home Army How Karolina’s grandmother gave birth to Karolina’s father in the midst of a bombing, all by herself, while Karolina’s grandfather was in a concentration camp The signs Karolina saw from her grandmother after death, from her Amethyst stone to the emergence of a certain wildflower Karolina began seeing everywhere Recognizing that our dreams aren’t selfish – following these dreams is a way of seizing the opportunity to honor our ancestors and the hardships they went through Advice and ideas for how to look for signs from the universe through symbols (they could be animals, numbers, colors, flowers, etc.) and how to be open to these signs

    The Top Signs You've Experienced Narcissistic Abuse and How to Flourish Afterwards with Marina J

    As today’s guest Marina J. reminds us, if we don’t allow ourselves to heal from toxic relationships, it’s difficult to really live.

    Now that Dry January is Over, Who Do You Want to Be for the Rest of 2024?

    Dry January is over. Now what? How does this play into the rest of 2024?
    In our last episode, Susie Streelman shared that 44% of people want to try Dry January. However, things can get confusing come Februrary.

Love every episode

The Become Euphoric podcast is magic! Regardless the topic, it’s always full of motivation and encouraging stories on leading a more healthy & fulfilling life. I look forward to each and every episode!

Please stop saying “Like”

After reading Karolina’s book, I began listening to this podcast from the beginning. I’ve listened to about 30 podcasts, and I must say that I have to quit. Both women but especially Karolina, use the word “like” so many times in each sentence that I can’t take it anymore. It is literally like torture after awhile! Sorry, wanted to love this.

TLH143 ,

Love the podcast

It’s great to hear these wonderful ladies experience as they share their stories and what they’ve learned along their journeys. Many good ideas to incorporate into daily activities, all with self love and compassion at the center.
