We caught up with the brilliant and insightful Leslie O’Hare a few weeks ago and have shared our conversation below.
Leslie , appreciate you joining us today. Can you share a customer success story with us?
Of course, I would love to share success stories from a few of my clients.
1. Bridal Coaching Client: “I didn’t know until I met Leslie how much of a difference it would make having a bridal coach to help me navigate through the highs and lows of planning a wedding. She is your bridal coach, advisor, behavioral specialist,
conflict resolution expert, and relationship manager all wrapped up in one. Working with Leslie helped shift my mindset in such a way that I was able to be fully present during the planning stages all the way to my wedding day! Thank you, Leslie for helping
me to not only be prepared to be a bride, you also prepared me to be ready to take on the role of wife. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me and my husband.” – Tina C.
2. Corporate Client: “Leslie is an absolutely amazing transformational mindset life coach. She has advanced our company and team, our quality of work and the way our company approaches and thinks about our business growth model.” Suzanne, Founder & CEO
Leslie , before we move on to more of these sorts of questions, can you take some time to bring our readers up to speed on you and what you do?
As a young teenage girl, I can remember my girlfriends always turning to me for inspiration and guidance to help them through some of their challenging life issues. I can also remember the time when I was a teen mentor for four years; counseling at-risk teen
girls at school and at summer camp [youth programs] at church; it’s these early years that I truly appreciate because they have helped me to become the caring professional that I am today.
After having straight A’s in psychology, during my school years, I began to realize that I have always been fascinated with the human mind; why we do what we do and how we can optimize our minds for performance.
I became an Accredited Master Mindset Life Coach, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner & NLP Master Practitioner and Bridal Coach because I want to create environments where people can fulfill their potential, personally and professionally. My coaching
career spans over 20 years. It all began after I had played an intricate part in facilitating hundreds of women in achieving their weight loss and personal life goals.
In my work, I combine strategic thinking and transformation methodology, health & well-being, human psychology, neuroscience and the science of behavior change into my bridal coaching sessions, corporate workshops, one-on-one private coaching, group coaching
and women’s conferences. I believe it’s the perfect blend of various methods and techniques that are needed in order to create lasting change in individuals.
It’s such a pleasure to have the opportunity to spend my days helping people to explore and understand their own mind and thought processes, make big changes, and create the life that they are dreaming of and the life that they deserve, as well as help people
create a life that they are excited to live. I love my work as a coach. Supporting my clients as they make big changes in their life, and guiding them as we look for ways to optimize and transform their mind & body is something I don’t take lightly nor for
I believe everyone should be excited and inspired by the life that they live; we don’t have to choose between happiness and success, it is possible to have both. Helping people to connect to what they really want for their life is a beautiful process.
My education and skills have equipped me with the tools to be able to quickly get to the root of what is holding you back and help you to formulate change.
Shame, self-doubt, self-sabotage and fear of failure is something we all experience at some time in life, myself included, so I am perfectly placed to help clients understand and overcome these challenges.
Having the opportunity to be able to equip women with the proper tools to empower and inspire them to love themselves unconditionally has been such a pleasure and inspiration to me. I can’t begin to tell you the joy that I feel whenever I have the chance to
see the look on a client’s face whenever she can look in the mirror and see herself as a gorgeous woman whom she truly loves unconditionally, no matter her age, no matter her size, no matter the color of her skin, and no matter what life throws her way, she
is able to still love and appreciate who she is and love and appreciate who she has become.
I am most proud of being able to empower women to change their mindset which allows them to have the strength and courage to rise above any unfortunate circumstance; which in turn allows them to not allow their circumstances nor their situations to define who
and what they are nor define who and what they will become. Seeing this type of growth in my clients is invigorating to me, as a coach.
Let’s talk about resilience next – do you have a story you can share with us?
As much success that I have had I have also gone through some tough challenges. As a child, I was abandoned by my father. As an adult, I was rejected by my mother and society and had to start life over at almost fifty years of age, after going through a divorce.
I lost my home, marriage and almost my mind after being in a challenging marriage [10 years]. I had to quickly make the decision to position myself to elevate my thinking so I could elevate my life in order to save my life.
Choosing to change my mindset in order to have control over my life and deciding to not allow the circumstances in my life to have control over me nor have control over my mind, has allowed me to be able to help many women regain their focus and their life
I want everyone to know that the things that happen in your life [the challenges and tough times]; are not there to stop you, they are there to strengthen you and they are there to move you into your rightful destiny.
Remember, life does not happen to you, it happens for you. When you have the perspective that life happens for you; you can accept that although things might not always go as you plan, there is always something bigger and better on the other side of a closed
door or the other side of an obstacle/challenge. You can breathe. You can live easier, live simpler, live in peace, and sleep at night, knowing everything is happening for your good.
The tough times are exactly why I am where I am today.
The tough times have transformed my mind and my life. The tough times, the pain, the hurt and the struggles and most importantly my faith have positioned me to WIN in my personal and professional life. As a coach, my ultimate goal is to help my clients achieve
success so that they too are WINNING inI life!
What’s worked well for you in terms of a source for new clients?
Whether it’s a bride who hires me to become her personal bridal coach to help her find her voice & shift her mindset in order to maintain her emotional health and well-being as she goes through the process of planning her dream wedding or a corporation who
hires me to conduct a transformational mindset workshop for their leaders and staff or a client whom I have coached one-on-one to help them create a growth mindset so they can immediately take action and take control of their life; referrals from existing
or previous clients has always been the most effective source for my business, which has definitely helped to grow my client base. Let’s not forget media exposure always helps, as well.
