Meet Kristen Kurtz

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kristen Kurtz.

Kristen, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Today, I’m a certified life & health coach, but it was quite a journey to get here! I spent years struggling with career uncertainty, crippling debt, low energy, anxiety attacks and dietary issues.

I knew I had to make a change. I learned the skills to transform my life from surviving to thriving. When I turned my life around, I knew I had to help others do the same. My coaching programs are custom, fun and effective. I help people discover what they need and then I give them the tools to move forward in those areas of their life or their health where they are stuck. I feel very privileged and honored that I get to work with people witnessing their transformations.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I would be lying if I said it has been a smooth road. From my own personal struggles to the challenges that come with owning your own business I have learned a lot! There are many unforeseen obstacles that can come your way. There is also an extreme amount of internal motivation needed to keep going despite those obstacles. Embracing technology and social media has been one of my biggest struggles. Luckily, I have built a strong support team around me. I have learned to confront my fears and struggles. In doing so, I have gained an enormous amount of confidence and momentum in my business.

Please tell us more about your work. What do you do? What do you specialize in? What sets you apart from competition?
I have one on one 90 day coaching programs that are fun, custom and effective. I work with people weekly for that period of time. We focus on a few main areas of their life that they are feeling stuck. By the end of the 90 days, they are more clear, validated, and powerful ready to take some serious action with long-lasting results. This method is a personalized way to take the time to focus on what you really want. My clients comment how much better they feel after our sessions. They feel heard, listened to, empowered and have more clarity on their direction.

My approach sets me apart from others because I have years of knowledge in the wellness industry that I blend with tapping into the specific needs of the individual. It’s not a cookie-cutter approach or a quick fix. However, the method I was trained in is backed in the science and belief that people can change. My approach allows the time and space for people to discover things about themselves they may not even be aware of. Then a clear plan is provided, so they know exactly what to do to create what they want.

I also offer personal growth workshops and yoga. We have a lot of fun in these workshops. I often collaborate with other amazing coaches, where we offer dynamic information on health and life topics. I specialize in holistic anxiety relief for adults and teens. I help clients find financial freedom. I also support people while navigating life’s transitions.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I consider myself a lucky person. Sure life has it’s ups and downs, however, I feel grateful for the opportunities that have come my way. I have made certain choices but I also have to consider the fact that there is a lot of luck and serendipity involved. I choose to see luck this way. It’s almost like magic, where you have to believe in it to see and create more of it. Albert Einstein embodied this in his quote, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle, The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
