Lauren Lemieux

Welcome to Coaching to Fulfill Dreams, I’m Lauren Lemieux. As a Whole Life Coach, I work with humans who are stuck, fed up, and done feeling frustrated, professionally or personally, and craving the courage, confidence and clarity to create a life they love, not just tolerate.

Sometimes, our life’s most tragic and consequential events allow for revelations to unfold. My revelation happened during a cold, April rain at my family’s boat yard:

I worked in a beautiful setting with my family. When an unplanned change was made in the midst of our success, the whole dynamic of the company shifted. After months of tolerating the discord, an unanticipated, emotional conversation occurred bringing everything into focus for me.

On the surface, I’m certain many would describe my choice to leave my family’s business as a midlife crisis. On the contrary, my desire to leave was born the day I started working there.

For the 18 years I worked at the boat yard, apathy quietly simmered below the surface. I was complacent. Existing on autopilot after relinquishing control of my life’s direction, experiencing little to no passion or purpose, settling for what was easy.

I mean, I did have a nice view, a great salary, lots of freedom and there were even a few dogs. But, I had settled into a hollow professional life.

There is a HUGE difference between living your life and tolerating it.

My revelation was that I actually did have a passion. I had felt a spark in Psychology 101 in college, yet ignored it. Out of a skewed sense of obligation, I settled for the easy path that was before me.

For me, during that one pivotal conversation in April, the heavy, dense fog of obligation was lifted. I had been telling myself a story. And, in that moment, all my options became clear. Who I wanted to be and how I wanted to live my life meant it was time to move on.

As I shared my revelation with a childhood friend, she made a suggestion as to what I should do next – What about life coaching? My response was, “WTF is life coaching?” So I started poking around online and that was it. What came next brought my true life’s purpose into view. I trained, studied, and earned my professional coaching certifications from the Coaches Training Institute and the International Coaching Federation.

That was nearly a decade ago.

In that one moment, I went from living life on autopilot to choosing to take control of my life’s direction.

And you can, too.

When you choose to partner with a coach and commit to doing the work, you’ll gain the confidence, clarity, and courage to recognize what’s truly possible. Once you realize what your options are, the choice to take control is now yours.

I’d love to hear about what’s holding you back and keeping you stuck. Whole life coaching will get you where you want to be in your life.
