Hi! I’m so glad you’re reaching out. Tell me anything you’d like to share, and I’ll be in touch.
I look forward to connecting!
You are a savvy, successful, extraordinary woman – having created an enviable life…
But on the inside, it’s not all it’s cracked up to me.
You’re burnt out. Depleted. Dying to escape, if even for only for a weekend.
Don’t get me wrong -- you love your career. You have respect, admiration, incredible impact, and a lucrative income. You don’t want to slow down or step back, you’ve worked too hard!
Yet life’s become a race from one task to the next. Low grade stress pervading your waking hours. Mind elsewhere when spending time with your family. Your partner feeling second fiddle to your To Do list (if you even have time for a partner!). Self-care squeezed in minimally at best.
And if that’s not exhausting enough…
Between your ears, your Inner Critic is always at the ready. Constantly feeling the need to prove yourself. Second guessing your choices, or how you’re perceived
Overworking because you’re known as the “get-it-gone gal,” but with the mongrel of imposter syndrome snapping at your heels.
Pulled in so many directions that no one gets the best of you – least of all YOU.
And then badgering yourself with thoughts of “I should be grateful,” as you watch the scale creep up and your relationships break down.
It’s not your fault things have gotten to where they are…
High-Achieving women are told the keys to fulfillment are the career, the marriage, the kids, the house, and on and on…. But my clients come to me with ZERO time and ZERO energy left to enjoy what they’ve created!
Don’t get me wrong – I don’t want you to step away from your success. I’m not going to tell you that you have to sacrifice to be happy, that we need to downsize your life.
But you crave BALANCE. You need EASE. You want TIME and ENERGY to be present and committed to your relationships, your health, your family, your recreation, your spiritual life, and your legacy.
Hi, I’m Barb Wade, and I'll tell it straight.
The key to the equilibrium you’re seeking -- and to the well-rounded, meaningful life you yearn for, without sacrificing career success – requires a wholly transformational approach, inside and out.
You’ll need to uncover and challenge the thoughts, beliefs, narratives, influences, and world view that has been running your life and decision-making (trust me, this alone is a breakthrough!)
And, you’ll need to learn the transformative tools and strategies required to navigate an extraordinary career with courage and self-advocacy, while uncompromisingly protecting a richly, fulfilling personal life.
I know this because I’ve been where you are, I’ve found my way clear, and for 21 years I’ve been teaching women like you to do just the same.
It’s your birthright to live in freedom, joy, and beautiful balance.
Unabashedly. Unflinchingly. Unapologetically. You.
I’m starting to discover the origins of my fears and biases, and the deeper motivations behind certain behaviors. I love the way Barb balances empathy and accountability—she is gentle, but NOT easy! She pushes me to question why I think, feel, say and do things, and guides me to author a different path forward on my own terms.
