Hello! I’m Life Coach Tracy Baranauskas, and I’m the founder of Moving Forward Life Coaching.
I help courageous women, like you, step into their power and share their light with the world!
As a former social worker who worked in the community mental health field for much of my career, I have always found joy in helping my clients discover and embrace their unique gifts and talents. It’s totally my jam!
However, in 2014, after changing positions and moving to a new organization, I received a tough blow that sent me tumbling backwards.
I was fired, the day after I went to our board to report several problems with the agency’s director and advocate for clients who were being neglected in the system.
Losing my job at that point in my career felt devastating. I felt stuck and unsure of how to move forward.
My confidence had taken a hard hit.
Like so many women, I had done all the things I thought I was “supposed” to do and put other people’s needs in front of my own. I had stayed in integrity with my values, yet I was dealt a seemingly unjust hand.
The experience strengthened my resolve to help other women who were being marginalized or who were holding themselves back to regain their power!
I knew that I had so much left to offer the world, and life coaching seemed like a natural fit.
But I wondered: How can I start over and build my dream when my self-confidence is so low?
This is when I decided to hire a life coach for myself. I needed help moving forward!
Yet that even felt scary. My hand shook as I wrote the check. Money was tight—as I wasn’t even approved for unemployment yet.
It was uncomfortable and unfamiliar.
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.
I worried: What if this doesn’t work?
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 renew my belief 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 powerful 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 strength and summon my full magnificence. She helped me remember what I was made of—my gifts, talents, integrity, tenacity, and grit!
Today, there are few things I value or prioritize more than investing in coaching. I have worked with 1:1 coaches and/or been in coaching mastermind groups ever since.
Having a coach is like having your very own personal champion. She can see through your BS when it feels hard, frightening, and uncomfortable.
A life coach has the wisdom, perspective, and tools to help you manage your (likely) freaked out brain. She comes from a place of love and rock-solid belief in “Future You.”
Every meeting you have with your coach is a reset to what’s possible. She challenges you to think differently than you ever have before.
One single shift 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 embrace their power, activate their true potential, and shine!
