Hello! I’m Life Coach Tracy Baranauskas, and I’m the founder of Moving Forward Life Coaching.
I empower introspective women, like you, who feel stuck to develop the confidence they need to move forward with their dreams.
I’m a former social worker with a BA in Psychology from Lake Erie College, and I’m a Certified Life Coach. No matter the position or profession, I have always found joy in helping my clients discover and embrace their unique gifts and talents.
So, when I lost my job unexpectedly in 2014, life coaching seemed like a natural fit, however my confidence had taken a hard hit.
Like so many women, I had done all the things I thought I was “supposed” to do, put other people’s needs in front of my own, stayed in integrity with my values, yet was dealt a seemingly unjust hand.
And although I have lived a well-seasoned life filled with the natural ups and downs of being human, losing my job at that point in my career was a tough blow for me.
I felt stuck and unsure of how to move forward.
I thought, “How can I make a big life change and start a whole new career working independently when my self-confidence is so low?”
This is when I first decided to hire a life coach for myself, but that even felt scary. My hand shook as I wrote the check. Money was tight, as I wasn’t even approved for unemployment yet.
“What if this doesn’t work?” I thought.
It was uncomfortable, to say the least.
I wasn’t used to investing time and money in myself. I had spent a lifetime investing in other people’s growth, but not my own.
However, I knew I needed support. I needed someone to hold my hand and help me believe in myself enough to take a giant leap forward.
And that’s exactly what happened.
The life coach I hired helped me to believe in myself, my capabilities, and all the amazing possibilities ahead.
By our second appointment, she helped me muster the courage to choose and enroll in a life coaching school.
And this initial move has not only impacted my life in beautiful ways but has also impacted the hundreds of clients I’ve served over the years and the people they’ve touched along the way too.
The true impact for me though was at a soul-level.
That first coach helped me to tap into my authentic self and summon my worth and magnificence. She helped me find the “me” that I thought I lost but was there all along. She helped me remember what I was made of – my strengths, gifts, talents, integrity, tenacity, and grit!
Today, there’s nothing I value or prioritize more than investing in coaching. I have worked with 1:1 coaches or been in coaching mastermind groups ever since I wrote that first check.
Having a life coach is like having my very own personal champion.
I know my coach has my best interest at heart, even when my best interest feels hard, frightening, and extremely uncomfortable.
When you’re making a life change, there’s nothing more beneficial than going through it with someone who has the wisdom, perspective, and tools to help you manage your (likely) freaked out brain.
A life coach comes from a place of love and rock-solid belief in “Future You.” Every meeting you have with her is a reset to what’s possible. She challenges you to think differently than you ever have before.
And, one single shift in thought can change your entire life.
This is the transformation that happened for me, and I want it for you too.
Moving Forward Life Coaching was born from my dream of helping women learn to tap into their strengths and develop the self-belief needed to activate their true potential.
I want to help you give yourself the permission to go after what you want in life and develop the confidence and courage to do it!
In short, my job is to get you moving forward towards realizing your dreams.
