"My Creative Genius is helping people find theirs!"

Hello! My name is Sara Emmerson. Though originally from sunny CA, I’ve been braving the Chicago winters now for more than 18 yrs. I am a professionally trained life coach and have 20+ years of experience in coaching, spiritual direction, live event & video production, leadership development, team development, and challenging the status quo!

When I’m not encouraging others to follow their dreams, you can find me cheering on my crew. (Husband Todd, aka amazing swimming pool designer @signaturepools; son Lincoln (14) – hockey-playing rockstar; daughter Lila (10) – soccer & socialite expert; and Gunner the Bernedoodle (1), our quarantine joy).

I love movies, road trips, coffee, the beach, bike riding, going for walks, coffee, anything with caramel, and great smelling candles!

I help others discover their purpose and live it to the fullest, generating results while joyfully navigating life’s “messy middle”.

I can’t wait to meet you.
Let’s chat!

What is a life coach?

A life coach helps you maximize your full potential!

They are professionally trained to use tailored tools & strategies to help you reach your goals. They are like a loyal, supportive friend and a trusted mentor all rolled into one.

Life coaches are skilled in knowing how to ask the right questions to get to the heart of your needs and desires. They help you identify your passions, hold you accountable to your goals, and provide support while encouraging you to become the best version of yourself.

What is Life Coaching?

Picture what a sports coach does.

A sports coach helps their team discover a goal (i.e., getting to the playoffs) and develops a plan to achieve it.

The same holds true for life coaching.

Life coaching exists between what’s happening now, what a person wants next, and closing that gap. A client and life coach relationship is a real-time conversation, not a stamped and mailed letter; it is a creative partnership, not a one-way street.

From the start of coaching, you will:

We all need a little assistance sometimes, especially with self-discovery. If you have ever watched a video of yourself or heard a recording and thought, “is that what I look and sound like,” you know how hard it is to see yourself clearly.

It can be tough to figure out how to get from identifying your goal to actually going after and achieving it – that’s where a life coach (aka Sara) comes in. She can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and overcome the obstacles that are holding you back.

Who Needs A Life Coach?

EVERYONE! (But especially you)

All kinds of people use life coaches, including business leaders, creatives, entrepreneurs, executives, musicians, artists, actors, parents, managers, professionals, small business owners, and start-up pioneers. We all have a gap between where we are and where we want to be – life coaching helps you reach your goals.

If you thought “Do I need a life coach?,” coaching will benefit you!

Here are a few more signs coaching is for you:

Why Coaching?

The better question is, Why NOT?

Research shows that coaching and training together are far more effective than training alone! Training can increase productivity by 22.4%, BUT combined with weekly life coaching, productivity is boosted by 88%!!!

Life coaching guides you on your purpose pursuit and allows you to maximize your potential in every area! Nothing is off-limits. BRING IT ON!

I love sitting in the “messy middle” of life with people and helping them see the remarkable life story that is being written for them.
