Her Passion of Creativity Created The Life Calling Coach
Athena Thomas is a Certified Life Coach and Founder of The Life Calling Coach and Yes You Can Today Christian Life Coaching. She has a specialty in using vision boards to establish a path to life calling and spiritual growth. She is the Endurance Program Director for Women Offering Wealth, a non-profit organization. She is also the founder and facilitator of the Sister Circle Support Group for women, a program for survivors of domestic violence and the Circle of Endurance Support Group.
Athena knows the difficulty of managing hardships as she had stumbled through many trials, including raising a son with Autism and overcoming depression and anxiety. She now uses her voice, talents, and coaching programs to help others nurture their roots, re-establish focus, and establish balance in their life so that they can grow into their life purpose. Her holistic approach in her coaching sessions focuses on the mind, body, and spirit.
She started her first business in July 2000 and operated as a freelance writer, graphic designer and web master for 14 years. During that time, she learned the difference between having a hobby and a real business. She learned how to manage her business and protect herself legally. Her biggest lesson was learning that living on purpose was crucial to being fulfilled especially in business.
The Life Calling Coach is her third business venture and she has used what she has learned to build this business slowly. But the major difference with this venture is that she is following her calling to counsel and mentor others in their path towards purpose. She has developed the Life Calling Coaching Workshop which helps people discover their initial calling via vision boards.
As the Endurance Program Director, she is responsible for creating programs that help members endure, overcome, and grow spiritually, emotionally, and professionally. Her first program is STEPS Against Domestic Violence, a 12-month program designed to aid survivors who have decided to make a new life, free of abuse. The program is scheduled to launch in 2019 as one of the first programs under the organization and the Endurance principle. The program was birthed from Athena’s personal experience with domestic violence both as a child and as an adult.
She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology – Life Coaching from Liberty University. She has over 15 years of experience working in the corporate world where she learned how to develop training programs, build business systems and processes to improve quality of work and work performance. She has trained and developed supervisors, team leaders and production teams based on company and project vision.
Athena is a published author who has written several articles and maintains a blog. She wrote her first book in 2004 entitled “Journey of Love” which is her personal story of endurance. She is currently reworking this book as her first coaching book entitled, “What Are You Rooted In?” which will be released in 2019. Her story will empower you to succeed, push you to overcome, and inspire you to live on purpose and not by accident.
