Today we’d like to introduce you to Jaime Keyes.
Hi Jaime, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My love for coaching and helping people expand their goals and growth really began at a job I had previously in 2016. I had recently got promoted to a management position, and with that, I could offer some change within the company and the employees I had never felt I could bring to the table before. I began working with the employees one on one about their goals and where they saw themselves going. I realized very quickly that it was a passion I had, and I could see it in their eyes that they loved talking about the future and everything they wanted to accomplish. For some they have never even been asked those questions before, so it was an honor to be that person that helped others be excited about their futures. After I had my children, I decided to go back to school to fulfill this dream I had of full-time coaching. I became a certified life coach through the life purpose institute in 2020 in October and started Keyes To Growth LLC in November immediately after becoming certified. I continued my education to become a certified DISC facilitator in 2021 and a certified breathwork facilitator in 2022.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Well, you know what they say… anything worth having never comes easy. A lot of coaches, especially right out of school are the most eager. And I will say, that was definitely me. I felt nowhere near ready to start, but I did it and learned a lot along the way. The biggest take away I have had as a business owner is that everyone fails at some point. It’s what you do with that failure that matters. Learning to stay determined yet resilient is the key. A huge learning curve I have had the last two years was remembering that things don’t always work out the way you think they should the very first time of trying. You have to stay resilient. Of course, I can be upset or question myself at times, especially when things don’t go as planned, but I choose to not let it keep me down. I will always continue to keep learning and keep growing my business despite any of the downfalls. I chose to turn any failures into my lessons and my own growth as a coach and business owner. I believe everyone is a work in progress, even me… it’s choosing to not give up that makes you successful. I continue to keep strong, knowing that I am doing exactly what I’m meant to do. My calling is to be able to help people through my coaching services, and there is nothing that can break my confidence in that knowing.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
Keyes To Growth LLC began in November of 2020 offering life coaching to woman supporting their mental and emotional health, building their confidence, and learning to use their intuition to guide them in the direction they’re wanting to go. Becoming a disc facilitator is typically a service you’ll find at colleges or in leadership positions, but I decided to use it with my own twist. I combine my coaching niche along with finding out your personal disc behavioral blend which can expand my client’s personal knowledge on their own behavioral patterns but also those around them, thus really helping with not just leadership, but communication and healthy relationships in their lives overall. One large issue I was seeing with a lot of my clients was their ability to really stop their brains and focus during our sessions. I had started incorporating Breathwork before each of my sessions just to bring my clients to a healthy center before beginning but realized there was so much more to Breathwork which enticed me to then get certified to teach Breathwork in either 1:1 sessions or workshops for groups. Today, Keyes To Growth has grown to help women in a holistic approach, with a full spiritual and emotional knowing of themselves, and expanding to selling positivity merchandise that I design myself. A lot of people look at life coaching as black and white, but there’s so much more to it than setting goals. I go through an entire system from start to finish that allows them to have a full-body experience. It is uniquely designed for my individual clients to truly grow into their best selves, so they feel their best and thus can make the best decisions for themselves moving forward.
How can people work with you, collaborate with you or support you?
I always attempt to make it as easy as possible for potential clients or even someone that wants to collaborate and work together. Most of my traffic happens through my website and social media. There, you can find a “book” button where you can schedule your first complimentary clarity call. This could be for questions about coaching services, collaborations, or even just to chat about what is the next step for you.
