I’m a strong believer that the ultimate goal in life is to find happiness -- and the relationships we have with our partners, family members, co-workers and friends are critical to achieving happiness.

Hi, I'm Shari Leid - your mindset coach! 

I’m so excited to connect with you at this moment, because my passion is working with women who live the imperfectly perfect life.  

You want to achieve life’s ultimate goal of finding purpose and happiness.  

You realize that there is more to life than even what is your objectively perfect life. Different things have brought on this awareness for you. The awareness could be a significant life event, a birthday, a relationship conflict, a work transition, or it could simply be a feeling that has been nagging at you. You know you aren't living your best life, and you're not progressing. You feel stuck. 

My client is the woman who has dotted all of the I’s and crossed all of the T’s. Is this you? You appear to have the perfect life. You may have graduated from college, may have married the perfect person, have beautiful children, live in a gorgeous home, travel, and have a set of fabulous friends. Although your life appears perfect, and you have so much gratitude for all of your blessings, you can’t help but recognize that something is missing.

Happiness is found when you live a life that is filled with: satisfying relationships + purpose + balance.

my passion

And, this is where I step in.

I help you recognize that the answers to your journey lie within you. I help you see how past messages may no longer be working for you, how obstacles are opportunities in disguise, and I help you let go of the fears of the future and the restraints of the past.

I help you live, fully, in the now.

From a very young age, I was a checklist person. I did everything in order. After high school, I attended and graduated from college earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Directly after college, I attended and graduated from law school earning a Doctorate of Jurisprudence. For nearly fifteen years, I enjoyed a busy career as a trial attorney. During those fifteen years, I married my law school boyfriend, we bought our first home together, and became parents of two beautiful children (a girl and a boy). I eventually became a stay at home mom who drove my kids to school each day and volunteered at the school. To top it all off, we adopted a Labrador Retriever. I was living the perfect checklist life.

Then I hit my mid-40s and I felt a disconnect with the life I was living and my own sense of identity and purpose. I recognized that while I loved my life, I made every big life decision based on who I thought society expected me to be instead of really getting to know who I am and what I have to offer the world. I proceeded to work hard to let go of ego and judgment which dominated my 20s and 30s. I began journaling, reading, studying, and tapping into mindful living.

Now, in my early 50s, I believe that all of my life experiences, including a catastrophic car accident, a double joint replacement, cancer, and other life challenges were placed in my life to allow me to share what I have learned. I believe that everyone’s ultimate life goal is happiness, and I believe that happiness is a 100% achievable goal. Each of my clients is on her own unique life journey. As a Life Coach, I listen to my clients, dialogue, and ask the questions that allow each client to find her own answers that lay within her. I take her from where she is at, help her define her goals, and guide her to a place where she wants to be, living her best IMPERFECTLY PERFECT LIFE!

Short bio

A mindset coach guides you from where you are now in your life to where you want to be. Coaching is not therapy. Coaching is a proactive approach to help you define what you want in life, whether it be relationships, physical, work life or family life goals or to help you through transitions in life and guide you as you work to overcome internal or external obstacles or blocks. 

I work with clients across the United States via Zoom -- and I take my job very seriously! I value my clients' time and I view my job as extremely important and I hope life changing - so, I limit my coaching practice to no more than 1 client a day. I have the luxury of offering a very client-centered practice. My clients' forward movement is just as important to me as it is to them! No client is just a number - every client is a VIP!

My clients have created seemingly perfect lives, but they know that there is something missing and that they can achieve even more happiness and satisfaction in their lives - but find themselves at a place where they feel stuck and are not sure how to proceed. My clients are often in the midst of a life transition or are experiencing internal or external obstacles that I help them identify and overcome. I believe that every client has the ability to grow and achieve a greater sense of wellbeing and happiness, including bringing in more fulfilling relationships to their lives through the process of gaining a better understanding of their unique value and the options that are available to them. I believe that the answers lie within each of my clients, and through partnering with me, I’m able to help them uncover and live their optimal life. 

Do you have questions about my process, pricing, or me? Great! Send me a note, and I'll get in touch as soon as possible. I love connecting with my clients, and can't wait to chat with you!
