In this episode of "The Masterful Coach," host Molly Claire along with guests Jenny Percy and Meg Kuhnle dive deep into the transformative world of coaching, particularly focusing on the overwhelming yet rewarding journey of motherhood.

The episode kicks off with Jenny Percy sharing how she helps coach moms with overwhelm by helping them simplify their lives so they have more time and energy for the things that are important to them. She has details one of the ways in which her life and her coaching has improved through Master Coach Training, which is through tapping, a technique she praises for its benefits on the nervous system and self-care routines. Jenny elaborates on how such practices not only improve personal health but also enhance the effectiveness of a mom as a coach. This also wonderfully sets the stage for a broader discussion on the critical role of self-care and emotional resilience in parenting and coaching.

Meg Kuhnle discusses her specialized approach to working with moms, especially those dealing with high stress and those parenting children with special needs. She details how her background as a personal trainer for people with special needs has given her unique insights into supporting moms more holistically. Meg emphasizes the importance of moms being role models and discusses a specific support mechanism which could significantly help mothers maintain their composure during challenging times.

Throughout the episode, the importance of community, support, and understanding the unique challenges faced by mothers is highlighted. Particularly poignant is Meg's discussion about "meeting mothers where they are" and helping them untangle their own needs from those of their children.

Molly, Jenny, and Meg also discuss the trickle-down effect of emotional health from mothers to children and how enhancing a coach's emotional toolkit can drastically improve their coaching and parenting strategies.

"Masterful Coach" not only sheds light on the interconnection between personal development and professional coaching but also inspires listeners to take actionable steps towards becoming more effective in both realms.

"When you prioritize your well-being, the ripple effect on your family is immense. It's not just self-care; it's family care." -Jenny Percy

Get the support you deserve as a female entrepreneur, master your coaching skills, grow your ideal business, and honor your priorities in your personal life. Are you in? Let's get started with your host, bestselling author and master life and business coach, Molly Claire.

Molly Claire [00:00:35]:
Hey, coaches, I've got a great episode for you today. I am interviewing two coaches. They are in Master Coach Training and they are blowing my mind at the ways they are integrating this high level work with their clients. Meg and Jenny both focus on helping moms. Of course, I'm releasing this episode this week since we are celebrating Mother's Day here. Huge shout out to those of you out there who are moms who support moms. Those of you who play that type of role in any kids lives, shout out to you. The work you are doing matters.

Molly Claire [00:01:11]:
It is so important, it is often overlooked. But wow, does it make a difference. In this interview, you're going to learn a little bit more about how these coaches are integrating the work of master coach training as they are helping their clients. We're going to talk about the ways and reasons why having a whole view of your client, their emotions, their cognition, their nervous system, and the ways that action focused strategies will be most effective for them. You're going to learn about why this matters and how it makes a difference. And something I am really excited about is that both Meg and Jenny are offering a special bonus offer to any of you here who are moms, or if you know a mom and you send them their way, they are offering something extra special for those of you as moms because you're here listening to this podcast. So stay tuned for what they've got in store for you. All right, let's go ahead and dive right in.

Molly Claire [00:02:12]:
Okay, coaches, so I get to have two of my favorite people here, two of my clients who are doing incredible work as coaches with moms. Go ahead and tell us a little bit about you, Jenny. Welcome to the show. Tell us, who are you and what do you do?

Jenny Percy [00:02:29]:
I'm Jenny Percy, and I am a coach for moms who are feeling overwhelmed, and I help them simplify their lives so they have more time and energy for the things that are important to them.

Molly Claire [00:02:42]:
Oh, my gosh. Like every mom listening. You know, I started working with moms initially, and of course, Jenny was- she did my advanced certification for motherhood and family life. Every mom listening is overwhelmed, like the first word we think of when we think of being a mom.

Jenny Percy [00:02:58]:
Maybe it might be.

Meg Kuhnle [00:03:00]:

Molly Claire [00:03:01]:
And I know, Jenny, you're going to speak more to this, but one of the things you're really focusing on in your business up and coming is decluttering and, and how powerful decluttering that space in the home is with regard to all of that overwhelming experience.

Jenny Percy [00:03:18]:
Absolutely. Yep. I'm all for helping, helping moms create that peaceful home and a more peaceful mind with that as well.

Molly Claire [00:03:26]:
Yeah. Yeah. I love it. Okay, Meg, tell us about you.

Meg Kuhnle [00:03:33]:
Thank you, Molly. Yes. I am a fellow mom, and I help other moms feel capable of raising their kids, whether they're typically developing or otherwise. And I just help them no matter how many times they feel like they've messed up along the way.

Molly Claire [00:03:50]:
Oh, my gosh. We all feel that way, for sure.So, as you hear Jenny and Meg, there is some similarities in what they do. But as we talk through this episode, we're going to highlight each of these women, and I'm really excited for them to share with you, really, the unique way they work with their clients. And they both bring a little bit different background and they're just, they're doing phenomenal work.Okay. So as we talk about this, one of the reasons that I reached out to these two amazing women is they are both in Master Coach Training. And I've been wanting to highlight some of the master coaches and really have them speak to the expansion of the coaching tools because having coaching tools that work and being able to create a safe, ethical, effective space for your clients is such a big deal.

Molly Claire [00:04:45]:
And so I wanted to highlight them and talk a little about master coach training. So I'm just going to go back and forth and pick on you a little bit. Meg, I would love to know from you the work that we're doing in master coach training, how have you noticed it impacting your ability to help these moms that you're working with?

Meg Kuhnle [00:05:08]:
Master coach training has really shed a lot of light on slowing down with ourselves, and as I work with the moms of kids who have varying levels of need, I'm able to help her slow down and really understand what she needs is separate from what her children need. And so she can fill herself up a bit more as she pours into her kids.

Molly Claire [00:05:39]:
Yeah. And one of the things that you're speaking to, and for both of you, I know I'm kind of picking on you, but please, you know, speak up if you have something to interject, too, because I really think just a conversation about this is the best. But, you know, Meg, as you were speaking, I was thinking about what we studied just a few weeks ago about that idea of the parent child relationship being so intertwined. Right. And being so caught up in, if my kids emotions are high, my emotions are high. If my kid isn't succeeding, then I need to figure out how to make them succeed. Right. And we get so entangled.

Molly Claire [00:06:17]:
And I love that you're speaking to the work you're doing with moms to help them, really to be grounded in themselves, to slow down. Right. Make sure that they are able to regulate their nervous system and attend to their needs so they can be there for their kids, which is a big deal.

Jenny Percy [00:06:38]:

Meg Kuhnle [00:06:39]:
It's a huge, huge impact on their family when they're able to do that.

Molly Claire [00:06:45]:
Yeah, yeah, yeah. And Jenny, I'd love to know from you, too, thinking about the work we do in master coach training, whether it's, you know, part of the niche work that we do or any of those fundamentals of the cognitive emotion work, all the things. Where do you find it helping you, help your clients? Yeah.

Jenny Percy [00:07:04]:
Well, I mean, you wouldn't think that you necessarily needed a master coach when it came to decluttering, but it actually can be really hard to do and really emotional. And a lot of people feel a lot of- can feel a lot of shame around the clutter in their homes. So it's important to me to be able to create, you know, a safe space, space for people to come together and feel, you know, that they can be vulnerable, that they can be supported. And I think all the things that we're learning about tapping and nervous system regulation is really, really helping me be able to support them with all those emotions that can come up.

Molly Claire [00:07:46]:
Yeah, I think. And using that word support, I love it, because, you know, as coaches, we can, we can have a plan of action. Right. And certainly there are things that we encourage our clients to do, and I know both of you are well trained in a cognitive model as well, where we're looking at beliefs and mindset, and yet the part where we're able to actually support our clients and what they're experiencing, it's a whole different thing. Right. And, I mean, I've had people help me with decluttering before, and I was so surprised at the emotions that I had and that we would need to go for a walk around the block because it got to be so much.

Jenny Percy [00:08:26]:
I know. And oftentimes it's because of, you know, a phase of your life is ending and you're entering into a new phase and you're letting go of things, you know, the little baby clothes or whatever it might be. And it does, it brings up a lot of emotion.

Molly Claire [00:08:40]:
Yes, it, it really does. And it's unique also to be helping moms with that decluttering piece. Right. Because if there's one thing I think we, most of us, anyway, have experience, experienced as moms, there's just, there are a lot of ways you just don't have the control you would like to have in your environment. Right. What's coming in and out of the house and what's going on. So, so it can feel a lot. It can feel quite chaotic, I think.

Jenny Percy [00:09:09]:
Exactly. Yeah.

Molly Claire [00:09:11]:
Yeah. And one question I wanted to ask you, too, and this is certainly, obviously, both of you are bought into the idea of serving your clients well and having the best skills that you can have and all of that. And I also would love to know from both of you why you've chosen to work with moms, why you see that as such an important client to work with. Meg, I'll pick on you first.

Meg Kuhnle [00:09:37]:
I would love to. I absolutely love working with moms because I feel like moms want to be a role model and they want to be the person that their kids are looking up to. And if mom can present herself and be that mom that she always has envisioned, you know, she will treat her kids in just that way she's proud of. And then when her kids are grown and have their own kids, that's going to be their role model. You know, that's what they're going to be mimicking. So it's just the trickle down effect, the snowball of it is just absolutely amazing to think about.

Molly Claire [00:10:19]:
Yeah. And, I mean, as you were talking, I was thinking about how I certainly learned great things from my mom and about being a mom and the work that I've done personally and the work that we do in master coach training that I started doing for myself and have brought to this. I can genuinely say that it has made me such a better mom kind of in ways I didn't even realize were there. Right. I would say even in emotional capacity and an understanding of emotional needs, which is kind of interesting to think about because, and I know both of you understand this because you're in that training. Right. And, you know, the emotion work that we're talking about. But I think that for most of us as coaches, we've probably always been pretty aware of feelings.

Molly Claire [00:11:13]:
A lot of us are very sensitive. We're maybe intuitive. We're maybe empathic. I definitely relate to all of those things. And it actually never would have occurred to me that there were some emotional gaps for me in my parenting. And yet the more that we study this work and learn about how to attend to our own emotional needs, it's expanded my capacity to be there for my kids, which is such a big deal. Right.

Meg Kuhnle [00:11:43]:
It's given understanding to what they're going through or how they might be feeling or even just how to support them in that way that prior to master coach training, I would have just kind of been at a loss and, you know, stepped back from and said, you know, I don't really know what to do here, but now I'm able to support with open arms and just be right there where they need.

Molly Claire [00:12:05]:
Yeah. And such a need. Right. It's one of the things that I've talked about in the past and in some of my webinars as well with regard to people with a mom niche is, it can be hard for moms to justify paying for coaching sometimes. And this idea that as coaches who are saying "coaching moms matters" is really kind of validating to these women that they deserve to have help and support. And it's always so crazy to me to think about, you know, you look at Olympic athletes, you look at, you know, CEO's, you look at people in these, you know, quote unquote, big roles or these big purposes to fulfill, and they all have coaches, right? Not just one. And yet as women, as moms, first of all, we have no idea what we're doing when we have a baby, right? It's like, oh, I'm taking this human home. Right.

Molly Claire [00:13:01]:
So not only that, but, but it really is such important work to be cultivating a space of growth for another human being. And so. Oh, my gosh, like, if anyone needs a coach, he do.

Jenny Percy [00:13:16]:
Yes, absolutely.

Molly Claire [00:13:19]:
Yeah. And, Jenny. Yeah. I'd love to hear more from you about, about coaching.

Jenny Percy [00:13:22]:
Yeah. I was going to say, you know what I love coaching about with moms is that often moms, they've got so many roles and responsibilities and they're often putting themselves last. And I don't think you realize until you do give yourself some time to devote to yourself how the ripple effect that that has that, you know, it's not selfish to go and get a coach for yourself. It is actually benefiting, you know, your whole family around you as well. And that's what I love to see.

Molly Claire [00:13:56]:
Yes. I mean, absolutely. The ripple effect is just everything. Okay. So I want to come back to you, Meg, because outside of being a coach, you also are a personal trainer, but not just any personal trainer. So talk a little bit about the work that you do there.

Meg Kuhnle [00:14:16]:
I do personal training for quite a variety of people, but one specific population is I am a specialty fitness trainer. So I work with adult aged people that have autism or down syndrome or id, and I meet them at a space and I help them, of course, build strength, but also just help them interact with people in the social situation or encourage them when they're feeling their big feelings. Being in a social situation, and it's so much more than just training muscles and building endurance. It's also building life skills.

Molly Claire [00:14:59]:
Yes. And I know one thing. Not only do you, do you work with that population, but you support the moms of those clients. Yes. Oh, yes.

Meg Kuhnle [00:15:09]:
I learned early on just in the interactions that I was having with mom as she was dropping off her child to be with me, just kind of hearing how her day was going and what was going on. And I am able to support mom in that space as she's juggling a journey that maybe she never anticipated. It's different. It's not what she expected. And helping her just have some clarity in her expectations for herself as she is navigating all of this, as she's navigating the schedules and the upcoming changes as her child has. Her child has gone from being a kid up to being an adult. Yeah.

Molly Claire [00:15:58]:
And as I'm listening to you, it's like, obviously there are special needs within that experience for the mom of the special needs child. Right. There are special needs there. And when I look at my own kids, and I think anyone who's listening who is a mom, if you think about each of your kids, they each kind of have certain special needs about them, right. Certain things that challenge them. And I think, and this isn't to minimize parents with special needs kids, that they're really taking a significant amount of time and support. Not at all to minimize that. And I also want to acknowledge that some of the challenges that you're supporting those moms with, so many of us just, we have just a different flavor of those challenges.

Molly Claire [00:16:55]:
Right. Like, this isn't what I thought motherhood would be like. I have certain expectations for my child, and they're not being met. How do I know what my role is and what it isn't? It's just, it's so, so much. Right. So I would imagine that we're obviously, you would be hands down the one to coach a mom of a child with special needs. And I feel like this has to really equip you even better to be able to work with moms of all kinds. Would you agree? Like, I would love to know how it impacts your ability to help these women.

Meg Kuhnle [00:17:35]:
Having the awareness and the ears to really listen to what mom is searching for as she is parenting any of her children and knowing that just like no two people are the same, no two relationships between mom and child are the same. And so by having my experience working with all types of populations, I'm able to kind of meet her right where she is. And, you know, mom, just listening what is missing in you right now or just what needs to be nourished or loved or fueled so that you can keep fulfilling the needs of your children no matter what phase that they're in.

Molly Claire [00:18:18]:

Meg Kuhnle [00:18:19]:
It just, as I have learned, I have experienced the patience that is required and the ability to really slow down and understand what is going on with my clients and then also with their parents and kind of how to bridge that gap that they may need to be filled.

Molly Claire [00:18:41]:
Yes. And, you know, as you were talking, I was thinking about, I know many of you can just hear this and you can't see the video, but, you know, Meg's putting her hands on her heart. I feel like we're doing that all the time - right - in our group because I always do that, too. It's like this way of self connecting. And I was thinking about this concept that we study in master coach training where we're talking about how to untangle in their relationship, to connect. Right.

Molly Claire [00:19:09]:
And when we, in our relationship, whether it's with our kids, our spouse, or anyone, when we can, can kind of create space between us and that other person, kind of mentally and emotionally connect with self and then have the tools to connect with that child or with that spouse else - right - it's, I believe, anyway, the absolute opportunity to have the best relationship with self and the most supportive relationship with everyone else in our lives. Yeah. And I love that you're, It sounds like you're able to do that in.

Molly Claire [00:19:44]:
In both of these areas of your life when you're doing the personal training and supporting those moms. And also just in the coaching space with the moms you work with, untangling.

Meg Kuhnle [00:19:55]:
Spider webs, the specialty.

Molly Claire [00:19:59]:
That could be your, your catchphrase right there. Amazing.Okay, I'm going to pick on you a little bit, Jenny, because I'd love to hear more about the decluttering work that you're doing and kind of what brought you to that. Because I know, in working with you that you, you've offered a variety of really supportive pieces of your business to moms with energy. Right. And just so many things. And so tell, tell us a little bit about why you're gravitating toward the decluttering.

Jenny Percy [00:20:32]:
Okay, sure. So I guess, overall, my overarching thing I'm always trying to do is make life easier for moms.

Molly Claire [00:20:39]:

Jenny Percy [00:20:40]:
Like, it's never going to be a walk in the park, but there are things that we can do to make things easier. Okay. And, and the thing that I'm specifically focusing on now is this, is this decluttering peace. Because I think, like I said earlier, just having that, having a peaceful home does help. You have a peaceful mind, and I think it can be one area of your life where you can have a little bit of control sometimes.Like, I know, I recall one time decluttering my pantry, and it was like, the one space in my house that, you know, when I opened it up, I just felt calm. And so sometimes, like, when things are falling around, you can just go and breathe.

Molly Claire [00:21:21]:
It's so true. I mean, as you were saying that, I remember when I first, I decluttered my entire kitchen and everything was labeled. Everything everywhere. And it's really true. It has a psychological impact. It does.

Meg Kuhnle [00:21:38]:
It does.

Jenny Percy [00:21:38]:
It really does, though. Yeah.

Molly Claire [00:21:41]:
And where do you see your, your clients struggling with either starting the process of decluttering or maintaining it?

Jenny Percy [00:21:51]:
I would say oftentimes people can get started, but then they run out of steam and they end up with a bigger mess than when they began, and it, and it just becomes so overwhelming. And so the process I use, that won't happen. You won't have that. The particular process I'm using, it's always, you know, you're always making progress. Things are never getting worse. They're always getting better. So.

Jenny Percy [00:22:17]:
And it's something that you can do in a very short amount of time. That's all you've got. You know, it's obviously going to take longer, but you're going to chip away at it and you are going to make progress, which I think, you know, a lot of us don't have the time or the energy, especially moms, to dedicate a whole day to pulling everything out and going through it all. So, you know, so it was important to me to have a way that, that's accessible for people with little time or energy.

Molly Claire [00:22:49]:
Yeah, it's those bite sized pieces, right? Kind of like, like when we talk about the effective action strategies in master coach training, like how do we help people move forward? Well, if they're already overwhelmed, giving them a big project - right - is going to be overwhelming. But when we can give our clients those bite sized pieces, pieces and do it in a way where you're bringing that emotional support, awareness of the nervous system, it's just like, I'm ready to hire you, and, and I certainly could use it. And I just love to listen to your voice, so that also would be helpful. So amazing. And.

Jenny Percy [00:23:26]:
Yeah, and I think also. No, I was going to say that I think what I've discovered is, you know, there's thousands of books on decluttering. Like, it's, and oftentimes it similar to weight loss. It's not like we don't know what to do. It's just for some reason, it's really hard to do. And I think through master coach training, I've been able to take the pieces of the puzzle and put it together in a way that's going to make it work for people. And a big part of that, I think, too, is doing it in a community, in a safe, supportive community that we all motivate each other and support each other and just give each other that direction to take the next step and cheer each other on. And I think that is a big piece of it as well.

Molly Claire [00:24:13]:
Yes. It's the best, isn't it? I just feel like it's just this space of so much support and connection and all of it. And, I mean, I'm just going to tell you all, I, unapologetically, I'm going to be telling you why these two are the best people to hire for what they offer and because not only because I obviously love and adore them and know how good they are, but also, you know, we, we really, together are studying the, the ways to make sure that the work that we do with our clients is effective. Right. And so, so I think it's, it's a big deal. In, in a few minutes, I actually am going to kind of ask that question so we can understand why what you do is different, why it's going to be so effective for the mom's listening here, or if you're listening here and, you know, a mom. Right. Why you should send people to them.

Molly Claire [00:25:08]:
But I want to shift gears just for a minute, because, you know, here we're talking about how you're supporting the women you work with. And I think we all know, I can at least say this, everything I've ever learned to be able to support all of you as my clients, it always benefits me in so, such a big way. First, I would love to hear from, from both of you how this community and learning and master coach training has impacted you personally. So who wants to go first? Raise your hand.

Jenny Percy [00:25:44]:
Yeah, I can say that right before this call with you, I was tapping like it was something I never knew anything about before. And I mean, the wonderful Melanie Faye has just, oh, she just blows me away. She's just phenomenal at what she does and how, you know, like, I'm someone who has to mostly watch replays, but, but I feel like she's talking to me. That has helped me so much. The nervous system work and realizing, like, it's one of those things where, you know, oh, yes, you need self care is important, yada, yada. But it's not until, you know, we've heard how Leah has shared with us how the benefit that that's having on us and being able to show up for all the things that we're doing in our lives when we look after our nervous system like that has helped me immensely.

Molly Claire [00:26:43]:
Well, and I love that you brought them up because Melanie, Leah, Lindsey, of course Krista's going to be in there. I think one of the benefits is just, just when you are with other women who bring some unique gifts and sort of that nurturing, it just has an impact. Right. And it's true. So, you know, you may have noticed Jenny said she doesn't attend a lot of the calls because she is, she, listen to this. She is up this morning for a 04:00 a.m.. Interview. I about died when she told me.

Molly Claire [00:27:17]:
But Jenny isn't able to attend the calls live. And, and we were talking the other day about how she still feels a part of things. So I say that because I know some of you that have talked to me, you have that concern. But I promise you will feel a part of things even with watching the replays and being there on Slack.

Jenny Percy [00:27:35]:
Yeah, definitely. Yeah. Yeah.

Molly Claire [00:27:37]:
And these women really are phenomenal. And I was going to mention something about, about Leah and what you were saying about, you know, well, self care is all, you know, fine and well, but it really is a big deal. I will never forget when, I don't know if you remember either of you, but when I asked Leah in one of the calls about talking about how, yeah, we can have activation, but we also still have some access to the cognitive. Right. Which is true. But if you remember, what she said was, I think you would be surprised at how much you do lose access to your prefrontal cortex with that nervous system activation, and it blew my mind. And so I think, really, that's been one of the things for me that I have really continued to remind myself of that. Like, listen, for us as.

Molly Claire [00:28:29]:
As women, as moms, for us as business owners, we have absolutely got to be in a space where we are grounded, where we are peaceful, where we feel safe. That is how we create businesses. That is how we create connection. That's how we do all of it. So it's not just, like a nice thing. It's the foundation of creating the things we most want, I think.

Jenny Percy [00:28:55]:
Yeah, definitely.

And kind of piggybacking, piggybacking on that. As you just said, one of the things in master coach training that we talk about is that activation. And the way that has directly impacted me as a mom is when I am, you know, handling my kids that I call the witching hour at my house between four and 06:00, when they've gone through all of their day, all of their highs and lows and all of that, and just when they say their words, I can have compassion for them. Okay, this individual just experienced all of these highs and lows, and maybe, as you said, maybe their brain isn't on right now and giving them that space to be there and offer support but not force it, because we also know if we don't want help, we're not going to receive it. So offer the support, but if they say, no, thank you, you know, allowing them to have that space and then talking to them later, and that is something that has absolutely impacted my own personal life. I'm able to be more patient with my kids during witching hour.

Molly Claire [00:30:04]:
Yeah. Yeah, I love that. I just yesterday was talking with a friend that was- we were just walking in the neighborhood and, you know, she's asking me kind of like, trying to understand more about master coach training. Right. And what do we do? And of course, you know, I'm always implementing all of this work for myself. And I didn't know what to say other than, I mean, obviously you can say, okay, these are the, you know, foundational pieces of effective change, and you want to help your clients change and have it be lasting and all those things. But I said, you know, the best way I can describe it for me and for.

Molly Claire [00:30:39]:
For my coaches in the program that I've spoken with is just feeling more emotionally resilient, feeling more settled and stronger in self trust in capabilities and all of it. Which it's like, first of all, hallelujah. Right? Like, even for our personal life and how we feel. I mean, what a foundation for long term health. And that spills over into our ability to be a strong CEO as we build our business. Because building a business, it's a whole.

Molly Claire [00:31:14]:
It's a whole other thing. Right. It's a whole different ballgame. And yet when we can have this foundation of feeling grounded, emotional resilience, building self trust, it opens the door for us to more effectively learn those business building skills. Right, right. And then, of course, the huge benefit is that we get to help our clients, too. So, so good. Yeah.

Molly Claire [00:31:39]:
The personal, the person. Who was it? I think it was our other Jenny was saying that, you know, master coach training is like the best self care program ever, and we just thank goodness that we get to justify it as business. Right. And do it, too, because it's business. But, oh, my gosh, what a space of support.

Jenny Percy [00:31:57]:
Yeah, yeah, it's wonderful.

Molly Claire [00:31:59]:
Anything else either of you wanted to speak to on that? I know, I just kind of went off on my own tangent.

Jenny Percy [00:32:05]:
No, I think it was making me think of when we do any coaching work, it's opening up possibility in other areas that you don't even realize. Like one client I was working with, I was helping her with her decluttering and just doing that sort of, it boosted her confidence and it helped her think about. She started talking to me about a business idea that she has to launch her own business. Making home cooked meals for freezer meals for busy working parents for their kids, this sort of thing. And it's just like, that's not what she came to me for in the first place. And I think that's what we do for people is open up that possibility for them in other areas.

Molly Claire [00:32:47]:
Yes, yes, yes, absolutely. Which I think actually is another reason that it is so important to expand our skills as a coach. Right. Because our client, like, I had a client that came to me, this was years, probably like seven years ago in my business, and she was wanting me to help get her side business going. Well, we talked about her relationship with her mother in law for three months. Right. It was like, this is not what she came to me for. So I think that's the other thing

Molly Claire [00:33:15]:
We have to remember that as coaches, sometimes our clients come to us for a pain point because that's the easy thing to say I need help with. But when we can be equipped in a well rounded way, it is. I mean, we really can support incredible changes. Yeah. Okay, so we're going to wrap this episode up here in just a few minutes. But I want to ask you. I'm going to, I'm going to ask each of you, what makes you different? Why should someone hire you? I'm just, like.

Molly Claire [00:33:41]:
I'm just saying it because I just know how good both of you are. And I know all of you listening. I know there are moms out there who are overwhelmed, stressed out, worried if you're doing enough as a mom, thinking that you've already messed up a million times. And I think Meg is like, she's the one right for that. So, Meg, tell us, how can you help these women?

Meg Kuhnle [00:34:07]:
Love to help these women. And as you said, you know, feeling like they messed up a million times, you know, that's okay.

Molly Claire [00:34:13]:
That's okay.

Meg Kuhnle [00:34:14]:
And just meeting them right where they are, even with all those mess ups and teaching them how to care for their unique selves and their unique family and just having that understanding compassion for all of it, no matter what they thought they were getting into, compared to what it is now, specifically, if it's the typical child or otherwise, and just allowing them to be just who they are, it's just so beautiful. And I love to talk to each of the moms.

Molly Claire [00:34:50]:
Yes. Oh, my gosh. Yes. And I know in a minute, Meg, and actually, Meg and Jenny, both have a super special offer for my listeners, so hang tight. But, yeah, Meg, I love all the workshops that you've done, and I've just seen and felt your passion for these women and these moms, and it's just everything. So I'm super, super happy to have you here speaking to my audience. So. Great.

Molly Claire [00:35:13]:
Okay, Jenny, why should- I think everyone needs to do your decluttering program, by the way.

Jenny Percy [00:35:19]:
I think we all need a bit of decluttering. Like, you can see me on video here behind me might be tidy, but I can tell you there's areas off camera that need some work. Like, I am where you are. Like, if you're struggling with feeling overwhelmed, I've been there. Or I am there still in a lot of ways. So I'm all about doing this realistically.

Molly Claire [00:35:43]:

Jenny Percy [00:35:43]:
We're not going to be creating a Pinterest home here. This is functional decluttering. And, yeah, I really care about all of my clients. I'm someone who wants to bring out the best in them to help support them. And, yeah, that's, that's what I'm all about.

Molly Claire [00:36:05]:
Really amazing. And, of course, you know, Jenny, I've worked with you in advanced certification and now in master coach training. So I've also seen Jenny for a while, and I see the way that you, you give such care and attentiveness to your clients needs. And, and just knowing you, I'm so excited about this decluttering program. So it's phenomenal.

Jenny Percy [00:36:29]:
I am, too.

Molly Claire [00:36:29]:
Yeah. Okay, so everything's in the show notes, but I'm going to have each of them tell you about their super amazing offer. So if you're here listening to this and you are interested in either one of these amazing coaches or both, Meg, tell them what to do. Tell them what you're offering.

Meg Kuhnle [00:36:48]:
Absolutely. I would love to invite any moms who are looking to feel more capable in raising their kids, whether they're typically developing or otherwise, to spend some time with me this summer. I would love to be your mom mentor and spend some extra special time together by scheduling a starting point session with me. And during our conversation, if you mention Molly's podcast, then I will give you a special bonus, which will be that I'll add a one on one session where we will create your own custom wellness calendar together so you can get yourself ready to not lose your cool with your kids this summer.

Molly Claire [00:37:27]:
Oh, my gosh. It's so amazing. And as Meg and I were talking earlier, I was thinking what a great time to work with you over the summer because there's like bringing in a little bit of space during that time. The coaching isn't overwhelming. It's not going to crowd out summer vacations. And I.

Molly Claire [00:37:43]:
I'm so excited about that offer. So, listen, if you're interested in working with Meg, get on our calendar and make sure to mention the podcast, because you will get that summer planning session. And I'm hoping I can sneak on her schedule, too. So. Yeah.

Jenny Percy [00:37:55]:

Molly Claire [00:37:56]:
Okay, Jenny, how about you tell them? What do they get?

Jenny Percy [00:38:00]:
I've got an upcoming decluttering program, which will be small group, but if you get on the waitlist for that, which will be in the show notes, then before the end of May, if you sign up onto that waitlist, you'll get a bonus one on one session with me. So, which I'm really excited about.

Molly Claire [00:38:17]:
So, so good. And Jenny does such great work with energy and stress reduction and all of that. So, so good. Thank you so much to both of you for being here. I'm so appreciative. This is such a great episode. And to all you moms out there, Happy Mother's Day. You're doing amazing work.

Molly Claire [00:38:38]:
I'm going to speak for all three of us because I know that they feel this way. We are sending you all the love and all the support and cheering you on. All right, thanks so much.

Jenny Percy [00:38:50]:
I'll see you all next week.

Molly Claire [00:38:52]:
Thank you.
