Here are some questions we asked this game changer to help our readers get a jump start on the New Year.
LW: Nashawn, You often use a ‘vision board’ in your seminars. Why do you say we need a vision board?
NT: “One of the things I’ve grasped hold of is what God talks about in Habbakuk 2:3 “Write the vision….” It’s so important for people to have a vision and a vision board. It makes it more clear and real plain. You know exactly what you are believing for and working towards. A vision board is the coming attractions to your life. It helps you to know where you’re going.”
LW: What is the correlation, if any, between coaching and having a vision board?
NT: “As a coach, our number 1 goal is to help you identify and gain clarity about your vision. We help you to stay accountable to that vision by supporting you so that you can win! So that vision board allows you to articulate that vision visually. It becomes a powerful tool to help you to engage with that vision and to be able to capture that vision to keep you motivated and to inspire you to action.”
LW: What are 3 or 4 tips for people who should have a vision board?
NT: 1. A vision board should be connected to your values.
2. A vision board inspires you for more. Be able to envision God’s plan for you.
LW: What are a few pointers for people who have begun work on a vision board and need encouragement to continue?
NT: “You have to keep the vision before you. I tell people to put it up somewhere you will see it every day whether it’s in your bedroom or your office.”
LW: Tell us a bit about what you do and how people can benefit from the service you provide.
NT: “I am a transformational life coach and empowerment expert working with women to take control of their personal and professional lives to gain clarity and focus to maximize their potential. I help them to see the ‘Bigness’ of their dream in order to activate a more abundant living; and an unprecedented life that’s in line with their God given design. I help them to get unstuck.”
