A note from Trina

Why I decided to do this:

My personal mission is to help people to live full, joyous and authentic lives. I love the energy of the new year – goals, new beginnings, UPLEVELING. But I gotta be honest with you – I have a personal bias AGAINST resolutions. I think we tend to pile them on and burn out quickly. Instead of creating a laundry list of all the ways your life will be perfect in the new year, think about what will be the BEST thing for you to focus on, that will improve your life, your business, and your levels of peace, you and fun.

How this challenge is different: in 7 days we will examine all of these things and develop a specific action plan for each person. Then we’ll keep our Facebook group open so that we can continue to support one another.  

Sound good? Join the party! http://bit.ly/UplevelResolutions

Here’s to an AMAZING 2017!

Yours in unlimited possibility,

Why Wait Until 2017? #LifeIsNow

Yes…. It’s October already. The days are getting shorter and the temps are dropping. The holidays will he here before you know it.

How is 2016 going for you? Take this quick poll.  Which number fits you?

  • 1: YUCK… I just want this year to be over.
  • 3: IMPROVING… It was rough but things are turning around.
  • 5: SO-SO… A mixed bag. But I’m ready to move forward.
  • 7: Not bad… Not amazing; but things are going ok.
  • 10: FANTASTIC! This has been my year!

If you are having a tough year, I encourage you to do whatever is necessary to take care of you and your family. Sometimes all we can do is get through it – one day at a time. But whatever you do – don’t go it alone. Many of us will suffer in silence and not want to burden others – when that’s exactly what we need. If you need to lean on others – do just that. There is no shame. They care about you.

And if I can do anything to support you – just let me know, ok? Seriously. Send me a message and let’s talk!

If you want the future to be better than the past – I can support you. As a matter of fact, I put together a little something with special pricing JUST FOR MY PEEPS.

Finish Strong! 2016 is not over yet!

I’m offering a special program for anyone who wants to tackle something and see results by January. So… If you have some unfinished business this year, you can still do something to turn the tide. Choose JUST ONE THING to focus on – either to jump start a new goal or regain momentum on something you’ve started, but now need to cross the finish line. Only you know what it is.


This is a 2 month, 1-on-1program. Start now and you can be done before the holidays! This is the same coaching I offer, at a bit of a slower pace (2 sessions per month), and focused only on 1-2 goals.

What you get:

  • 90 min kickoff Power Session
  • 3 bi-weekly 60-minute calls
  • Weekly email check-ins
  • Free workbook: Designing the Life You Deserve
  • This is just what you need: Personal. Results oriented. Future-focused.

LET’S DO THIS!  For details email trina@mycoachtrina.com

Superwomen Unite!

I blinked… and it was September. How the heck did that happen? Seriously?? Well – here we are – and it’s time to get down to business.  My next message will be all about that. But today is just for the superwomen in the house… you know who you are!  Hopefully, this will give you a chuckle and help you take a breath. You deserve it!


Recently I happened on a post I wrote awhile back entitled “Owning The Cape.” It’s about the struggle to be superwoman… A subject I’ve dealt with literally all my life.  Funny that I should happen on it a day when I’ve made several minor mistakes. Left my cell phone at home… Then the car. Missed 3 (Count ’em… 3!) Trains on the process. A bumpy start to say the least.

On my way to work I begin to think about my amazing tribe of superwomen. Some are more balanced than others. Lately, I’ve been feeling a bit off kilter. I’ve made some decisions to slow my roll a bit. But then I start feeling like a slacker. Sound familiar? If this is you – take a moment and BREATHE. This message is for you.
Here are a few things we can do to maintain our sanity.

  1. Breathe. Literally. Sometimes we get in “fight or flight” mode and can even tense up and stop breathing! Take a deep breath. Take another one. Put on some music while you work. Walk around the block. Give yourself some space.
  2. Cut yourself some slack. Why are we so hard on ourselves? Nobody’s perfect, yet somehow we bought into this image that keeps us acting as if we have to keep up a façade of competence, strength, and courage. Allow yourself to be human.
  3. Get help. This is the hardest thing for us to do!  But it’s so important.  Delegate (and then LET GO). Hire help if you need to, or find services that will help lighten your load.
  4. Find ways to connect and refresh. Today I had lunch with a dear friend. We laughed about my fumbled start to the day. It was good to be with someone who ‘gets it’. Connect with people who care.
  5. Indulge in things you love. This can be big or little. A day in with jammies and a new book or binge watching Netflix. Buy flowers for yourself. Chocolate lover? Get some of the good stuff on occasion. Life is for living!

Now, take another deep breath. Feels good, doesn’t it? I know you are slaying dragons, knocking down walls and leaping tall buildings with a single bound. But you have to be good to yourself in the process.
Much love… Trina

Here’s the blog I wrote in 2010. I hope you enjoy it!

You can have what you want in life….

… if you are willing to do some things differently.

Hello my friend!

It’s been awhile since I’ve written. Life has been a whirlwind of activity, as it goes sometimes.  And how are you? I pray things are going well in your life.


Today’s message is about Intention and Focus.

I truly believe that you can have what you want in life. That doesn’t mean you will have EVERYTHING YOU WANT, EXACTLY WHEN YOU WANT IT. That also doesn’t mean that bad stuff doesn’t happen along the way. And admittedly – sometimes it’s REALLY BAD.  And we have to push and lean on our faith and others to get through it.

The truth is – life is a roller coaster ride. There are some wonderful high points, and there are some lows. It’s what you do with the rest of it that helps steer your course.

Some people believe that life is crappy and the best we can do is try to weather the storm. I have a good friend who often uses the phrase “You will have what you say.” I think that’s very true. It’s another way of expressing the Law of Attraction.  Another often-used term is, “What you focus on expands.”


I have a question for you.

What are you focusing on?

Do you spend more time bemoaning the bad things that happen, thinking about the past, or blaming others for your circumstances? This is known as “victim mentality” and it is a very disempowered place to be. People who have this world view stay stuck and don’t realize their own inherent power.


It’s time to take back your power.

Here are a few suggestions.

Turn negative statements around. Instead of saying “I can’t do it,” say “I’m not sure how I’m going to do it, but I can figure it out!” Think of a few of the negative things you say to yourself and try re-framing your attitude about the situation.

Limit your exposure to energy drains. Sometimes there are people and situations who steal your joy and keep you from believing in yourself. It may be at your workplace – a toxic person or a boss who doesn’t support you. It may be a family member or friend who is constantly negative or drains your energy by leaning on you too much.  Whatever the source, YOU HAVE THE POWER to change the dynamic and limit your exposure. In some cases it may mean getting a new job or cutting ties with someone (or realizing that you can limit the conversations you have with them).

Make plans for the future – and then ACT. Sometimes we want something different in our lives but we don’t know how to go about getting it. This is where plain old hard work and determination are required. If you want something, you can’t just wish it into being. You can pray about it, but you also have to DO SOMETHING to move things forward. Carve out the time and energy to figure out how to make the first step toward your goal. Sometimes it will require education, a mentor, a coach or an accountability partner to help you stay in forward motion.

ARE YOU READY TO TAKE ACTION? Your future is waiting!

If you are STUCK and DISEMPOWERED, I invite you to take time out for your life! As a coach it’s my job to support and encourage people on their journey. Let’s get to know each other!

  1. Schedule a complimentary introspection coaching session with me and let’s find ways to shift your energy so you can enjoy life more. Just email me at trina@mycoachtrina.com and we can get started. I look forward to talking to you!
