This week, we present you Lindsay Law from Youth Rising Coaching Services Inc. Lindsay is an alumni of our Accelerate HER PEI Program!
Name of Business: Youth Rising Coaching Services Inc.
What kind of work did you do in the past and what inspired you to start your own business?
I worked as a Pediatric Physical Therapist for 10 years before I took some time to be home with my children. Through raising my children, I became passionate about the importance of youth mental health and started conversations with our children about caring for their brains early. I now help youth embrace confidence and self love so that they are ready for life's challenges.
How long have you owned your business?
I have owned my business for 1 year now.
What have your challenges been? How did you overcome them?
I knew that I wanted to help families and youth and I knew that I had a lot to offer from what I had learned through my experience, but I wanted to be able to offer more so that I could help them to a higher degree. This is why I became certified as a youth life coach so that I could really help youth make the changes they needed for better life long mental health.
What have your successes been?
My big successes are when I hear a teen or tween tell me the impact that coaching has had for them. "I have more confidence with friends at school and I don't worry as much about what others say about me." and "I can try anything, because I know that no matter the outcome, I'm ok with me."
What services does your business provide?
I help youth embrace confidence and self love so that they can navigate the challenges of life with more compassion and kindness towards themselves. This allows them to say no when it really matters, avoid self harm activities, ask for help when they really need it and be willing to accept themselves even when they fail. I provide this support through 1:1 coaching.
I help parents show up as the parents they want to to support their teen/tweens self love journey with confidence and curiosity. I teach parents to communicate acceptance of their youth in any situation. I provide this support through a parent e-course, 1:1 coaching and free parent workshops.
What sets you apart from your competitors?
I have 6 children and have personally dealt with self love and confidence challenges as a youth and as a mother with children who have struggled to see their value. My own personal experience as well as my training make me well fitted to serving my customers to the highest level. I don't just teach skills, I coach to help my clients get to the root of what is holding them back from true self acceptance and confidence.
What areas do you serve?
I serve youth and parents all over North America.
