FB Group: Seattle Area Parents - College Admissions Discussion


I am an independent college admissions advisor in the Seattle area. I work with high school students and their families locally and throughout the country helping students find the best academic, social, and financial fit colleges to apply to. I guide students through the application process and help them present their best selves in their applications.   I educate families on the financial implications of their choice of college and work to find schools where students are likely to receive generous merit aid when families can’t afford to pay full tuition. I also help students navigate the financial aid process and apply for scholarships.

I am a member of HECA (Higher Education Consultants Association) and IECA (Independent Educational Consultants Association) and adhere to the strict ethical standards of these organizations. I attended Northwestern University where I earned a BA in Economics and an MBA in Marketing and Strategic Management. I served as an alumni interview on the Northwestern University Alumni Admissions Council for over 15 years. I completed the Independent Educational Consultant program at the University of California-Irvine and regularly attend professional conferences and visit campuses nationwide to stay current on trends in college admissions.

I know how stressful the process can be and how complicated the process has become and I love helping high school students navigate the process and find programs that are perfectly suited to them.

Managing Your Inner Critic: Taming Negative Self-Talk

Does your inner critic tell you that you don’t have it in you to succeed? That you are not pretty or tall or thin enough? Do you feel shamed and judged and sabotaged a little—or a lot? Then it’s high time to turn the bloody bastard from a major drag into an ally and cheerleader!

In this workshop, Micha Goebig will show you * what this mean voice in your head is all about * how to separate yourself from your inner critic * which steps you can take to change its lies and limiting beliefs. You will leave the workshop with an actionable list of suggestions and tools that can help you work on positive changes and further strengthen your self-confidence and courage.

Confident Parent Coaching

Seatte, WA. 98103

www.confidentparentcoaching.net

 

I am an educator, a mother, a partner, a scholar, a woman, a business owner and so much more! I love connecting one on one with my friends over a cup of coffee. I love having deep conversations. I love playing outside. I love being spontaneous and I LOVE laughing! As a woman over 40, I have been serving children and families for more than half my life I still love every moment of it! My goal is to help other parents have the same passion for life! As a parent coach, I work with parents from all walks of life and many different cultures.

As parents we are influenced by family, culture, neighbors, friends, social media, and so much more. For many parents it is hard to admit that they are struggling. We live in a culture that moves quickly and shows the best parts of ourselves, leaving real struggle to be pushed down or forgotten. Sometimes those struggles are small and simple and sometimes they are huge, but they are ALWAYS real and they deserve to be heard and noticed.

As a parent coach, I give parents a platform to talk about their struggles and a way to work through them. In my work I focus on the parents. We talk about their struggles with their children, we address their struggles with their children, and they see real and lasting results. But this all begins with them. After all, true and lasting change begins with ourselves.

When I work with parents, we work together to focus on what is working. We look at the positive things, no matter how small and we build from there. Captains say that 1 degree can dramatically change the course of a boat on the water; the same goes with parenting. We as captains make one, tiny, degree of change in our course and it dramatically changes the trajectory of our children’s behavior.

At Confident Parent, we work together to find that one degree, that one thing that parents can do to change the direction of their children’s lives forever. The blessing comes as they see there are many opportunities to change, and the positive outcome in their children’s is limitless. The overwhelming consensus for parents, after going through the coaching process, is while some of the changes they made were hard, they would do it over and over again because in the process of helping their children, they found themselves again.

I come into people's homes and organize their space.  I offer a guarantee and limited use of my supplies. My ideal client is a senior citizen or busy professional. They have either inherited an estate, are moving into or out of their residence, or have many years of clutter throughout their home. I'm passionate about helping clients improve their lifestyle through organization. My goal for 2019 is to increase my sales by 200%.



Hello! I'm Stephanie, Ring Master of the #3RingCircus over at Essentially Nerdy Family. My husband is Peter and we have 3 kiddos, ages 6 and under. I am super passionate about empowering people to use essential oils and plant-based products to be healthy in body, mind and spirit.

So maybe you've been hearing all the fuss about essential oils? Maybe you've been wishing you had time to do a ton of research or have a way to learn what on earth they can do and how you could use them? Maybe you're scared of using oils on their own, but you want super safe and effective products you can use around your home, in your personal care, in your supplements ...


I want to teach you what oils are, how they're made, why quality is important, what to look for in quality, how oils work with your body, what oils can do for so many of your body systems, how to use oils, what kinds of oil-infused products are available ... I want to give you new tools in your toolbelt on your road to whole-picture health. I want to connect you with a community of people who are all working toward those goals, sharing what they've learned together, cheering each other on. You're worth that investment!

I began my business in January 1998. In these 21 years, I have helped over 2500 hosts share Pampered Chef recipes and products with their friends and family. Our great products do change lives by providing the best cooking and entertaining available. Our rewards program for hosts gives FREE and discounted products of his/her choice for having fun with me. Anytime is a great time to enjoy Pampered Chef.

As a dietitian, it has been a perfect fit to cook with and help customers and guests acquire tools that make cooking and serving food easier and enjoyable.

I would love to help anyone who cooks, who eats, who entertains, who gives gifts, who is getting married, who is getting divorced, who is graduating from school and moving into new place, who needs to downsize with less but great quality tools that last, or anyone who just loves Pampered Chef.
My Goal for 2019 is to continue providing great service. And I am working to earn a trip to Disneyworld for my granddaughter. Any and all support to reach that goal is appreciated.

Ladies that Rock!

Women For One’s Truthteller Tour is an empowering event of celebrating and giving voice to women's experiences: stories of triumph, devastating loss, and everything in between. It’s an opportunity for women to own their stories—and their lives. It’s similar to community-centered events like TEDx, except it’s more like the proverbial campfire around which old and new friends can gather, talk, and share—with vulnerability and heart. It lets women step up, speak out, and shine, which is Women For One’s motto for the Truthteller Tour.

‘While the current atmosphere around bringing women’s stories of abuse and violation into the public eye is tremendous, we at Women For One celebrate the full spectrum of our experiences: from the quiet epiphanies and moments of wonder to the major breakthroughs that come from experiences like divorce, moving to a new country, finding one’s purpose, and using one’s power for the greater good,” says Kelly.

Women For One has been producing successful Truthteller Tours around the nation. From Boulder to Atlanta to Mississippi, the organization is quickly gaining momentum and garnering interest from corporations, organizations, and universities. Their April 2019 Pacific Northwest Truthteller Tour in Kirkland, Washington follows on the heels of their inaugural Your Messy Brilliance® retreat: an intimate weekend of workshops, storytelling, and building sisterhood and opportunities to create community and collaboration.

“The sisterhood that women experience during a Truthteller Tour (and that we know they’ll feel during our retreat) connects us in a powerful way,” Kelly says. “We have to remember that our stories are powerful. The ones I’ve been witness to during our events encompass love, loss, and the power of connecting with our deepest truths; these are stories that are by turns hilarious, heartbreaking, and brimming over with hope. They inspire us to take the kind of action that permanently transforms our lives, communities, and the world.”

Scoop Marketplace, a zero waste grocery store

info@scoopmarketplace.com, www.scoopmarketplace.com

In 2019 I am opening a zero waste grocery store where customers bring in their reusable containers to fill with as much or as little as they want of a wide variety of package free food and home goods. By reviving the simpler shopping methods of generations past, we are significantly decreasing our environmental impact while also saving our customers money. As I continue to sort out details for a permeant location, I am doing occasional pop-up shops where I sell reusable products to replace items that we have become accustomed to throwing away, including water bottles, handkerchiefs, shopping bags, unpaper towels, washable sponges, and glass straws. I also sell books that support sustainable living, plastic-free hair ties, and a small selection of bulk items such as tea, spices, Epsom salts, laundry and dishwasher detergent. 

Scoop Marketplace will be a gathering place in the community where people come together to learn, share food and ideas, and bond over similarities in values, lifestyles and food preferences. I am excited to use Scoop to showcase some of the best products that the PNW has to offer. There are so many creative and hard working people here and we can find pretty much anything we need or want locally. I am happy to support local artisans and producers and cannot wait to bring these high quality local products to our customers. By choosing to be a Scoop supporter, you are voting for healthier food systems, a cleaner planet and a strong community of people who prioritize the common good. I know that the Scoop community will play a foundational role in this social movement as we shift towards sustainability. We are going to change the world!

I love what I do and how I do it!

It’s all about the client. It always is.

My continuous goal is to create more value for them by offering more, and with that they have a better overall experience and increased knowledge of their own decision-making process.

I own an education and investment advisory-focused, full-service real estate group that does business entirely differently than everyone else.

As a fully licensed real estate agent, I practice in all residential and commercial fields (there are more than you may think!), and through that extra knowledge I understand the business and the residential side equally, so I can offer better specific advice on whatever my clients are looking to do.

Real estate is an investment, the largest investment most people will make, so treat it as such!  I can provide advice on where the city is developing, where the jobs are going, so you can better predict where your home will worth the most in 5, 10, or 20 years.

With my unique background in business, corporate sales, and construction management (I actually built and remodeled homes and offices, so I know what I’m looking at) I can offer more comprehensive advisory service than my peers that is relevant to buildings themselves.

And I’m not in a hurry.  I invite my clients to have dinner with me; I invest time to learn about them and provide them all the necessary information to make smart, predictable, long-term investments and homes for their families.

Information is power.  I empower you to make the best decision for you!

Send Girls to School this Holiday Season

There are many worthy causes to support this holiday season.  One that will have a lasting impact is sending girls to school. Socio-economic challenges keep many young women around the world from finishing school and reaching their full potential. NW Ladies in Business Member, Jessica Peyla Nagtalon, founded the Nasirumbi Education Fund (NEF, www.nasirumbi.org), which improves access to education for girls by providing scholarships, learning materials, counseling and workshops.  This holiday season, NEF's goal is to sell 50 T-shirts by December 11th. By purchasing a colorful NEF T-shirt, you will help NEF gain exposure and raise money for their scholarship program in rural Kenya. If you prefer not to buy a T-shirt for yourself or a loved one, please consider making a financial contribution or donating a T-shirt for one of NEF's students. Each T-shirt is $25. Orders can be placed by clicking on the following link: https://customink.com/fundraising/nasirumbi-education-fund.


Join our sister Facebook group page "Fans of NW Ladies in Business". The idea is to highlight one of our ladies each day on the page. This group is for our ladies to hear about and support more ladies in the group and for the entire community to see how awesome we are and to start supporting local women owned businesses. I am in the process of inviting all of our current NW Ladies in Business ladies and my facebook friends and family. I highly encourage you to join the group and to start inviting all of your friends to join too. The more supporters we have the better. This page will be public and anyone can join. I will be posting our community events here too so that you can share them. Thanks for helping get the word out about the page!
https://www.facebook.com/groups/957162577817251/

On Monday's you will get to post to the community about your upcoming events and on Fridays you will be able to share any promotions you have going on. It will be a great way to get the word out about your business to our whole community!

Ladies that Rock!

I remember thinking that I wasn’t doing enough. I’d been working with clients one on one for twenty years, but it wasn’t enough. The change I wanted to see in the world would require something bigger than me. For a while I felt like I was flailing. I was fighting with my own feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt, while also trying to figure out a business model that would allow me to have 10X impact. My goal was to make health and wellness accessible to ALL women, not just the ones that could afford $200 yoga pants and weekend retreats to Hawaii.

Since I couldn’t just drop everything and go “find myself’ for nine months, I started interviewing other women who were feeling like I was. I wanted to know what they read, what they watched, what products or health modalities actually worked, and didn’t cause harm to women in the long-term. Once I started sharing my insights, well, the whole thing started to take on a life of its own. And in the process, I stumbled upon the peace I had been searching for in my own life.”

Hezalia is a movement, a website, and an online community created by women, for women. The Hezalia platform and in-person events feature stories and advice, product recommendations, and a user forum aimed at empowering women's health, wealth, and influence. You want to find a therapist that specializes in women’s sex issues? We got it. Are you a woman-identifying inventor who wants to launch your newest product on a platform that is run by women for women? Hezalia wants to spotlight your incredible self. And oh, would you like to borrow our big ass hammer to smash through those glass ceilings with? We’ll help you swing it, Babe.  

Hezalia is still in its infancy but in less than four months, we’ve managed to launch the online platform, a media station for woman-made health content, Hezalia.TV, and the first of our three annual events, #enlightenedAF – A 2-Day Workshop For Rebellious Women, will be of epic proportions this January.

I am a full-time real estate broker and Director for the Washington REALTOR® Association. Since 2004 I have been helping clients navigate the ins and outs and ups and downs of buying and selling their home. I rock only because of the people I choose to surround myself with, personally and professionally. I truly believe that you are the company you keep, and between my family, friends, colleagues, and clients, I am blessed to keep some pretty rad company. Oh, and my cats. My cats are pretty rad, too.
