Do you feel frustrated
when it comes to time management
yet don’t want structure to hold you back?
Do you feel scattered and overwhelmed that you have so many great creative ideas… but just can’t seem to stick to a plan to actually implement them, or live out your priorities that are most important to you?
If so, i totally get it. I have been there too.
Hi, I’m Colleen Coles! I am a Purpose Alignment Coach, creative, spiritual intuitive, and lover of freedom and going with the flow, and doin what i want. But…
For YEARS I struggled with time management.
I remember only a few years back I would try to manage my time between having a job, studying on the side with what was my passion (spirituality and coaching), being in a relationship, and also trying to implement ‘self-care’, alone time, and turn that passion into an online business to actually help others through what lit me up…
But at the end of each day, I felt like I would always fall behind and could never do enough.
(Can you relate?)…
Late all the time
never feeling like I had enough time,
scrambling and forgetting appointments sometimes, but especially the ones I made to myself
I just wouldn’t go through with what i said i’d do! And if i had a schedule, i would never follow it!
I felt like I was working all the time and yet nothing of my dream was really moving forward, and I only felt scattered and like life was unpredictable.
And then I remember the moment…
Things started to shift.
I remember enough was enough, and my life felt like it was falling apart, and my purposeful work in the world was slipping away as well as the years going by to make it count.
So I made it my mission and focus and decision to figure out a time management system that really worked for me.
Fast forward to today:
I am full time in my spiritually-based coaching business that I thought might never get off the ground because of how i was using my time… (yay!!),
I feel calm and structured, living out my dream now of traveling and still getting my work done (Even by going to Brazil for 2 weeks and STILL being able to work, create, and surf)
While also having a really nice schedule at home that makes me feel like I’m in my body again and have time for my family, me, and just at peace!
Feeling in control of your day.
Finally feeling like the creative one who is supported by time and life… not up against it!!
Being done at 6 (or whenever your heart desires!). and collapsing on your couch with a job well done exhale! Knowing you’re about to go do something fun
Feeling grounded and calm because you know how and when you will get your projects done (without worrying about it while you sleep)
Having evenings off, going to the movies and enjoy quality time with your family, partner or friends. (while also having the satisfaction of getting done what was important to you during the day).
No longer shaming or giving yourself a hard time comparing yourself to others and how they are working… but finding a system that works on your own.
Spending more quality time on what matters most to you, and seeing your work in the world affecting people or the world that you love.
Feeling relief, having a plan, and being confident, focused, AND intuitve with how you spend your time to actually get your work done and your dream a reality.
This is all possible for you!!
You just need to find the structure that works for YOU being the intuitive, creative freebird you are!
What I have found is that most time management systems don’t work for people like us.
They aren’t created for it… it’s more for guys in plaid collared shirts who might be good and geared toward it anyway (know what i mean?) ;-)
The truth is you still can be YOU (that’s your strength) but the secret is about finding the tactics that will work FOR you, in service to you the boss, and have it just help you flow tapping in to your creative ability and what you do best, just chunking it down so that you feel more in control.
That’s why I’m so lit up to tell you that I’ve created a class that will help you do just that.
I am so happy to introduce you to….
Time Management for the Creative Intuitive Freebird
A 6 week course in following your dream, staying with the Flow, and having structure in a way that works for you!
Here's how it works:
There will be 6 weekly calls on Fridays at 9:30am EST. Starting this Friday, September 14th, 2018.
Each call will be recorded for you to listen to if you can’t be there live.
Can’t be there live? Don’t worry! Before each call there will be a survey sent out for your most burning questions that are unique to you.
Then I will answer them over the call, and so you will always get your questions answered, with support after the call of a survey to make sure you have your questions answered for the next call as well.
Each week we will have a strucutre of having ONE goal of homework to apply the tool we’ve learned to make sure you follow through with what is most importnat to you, share wins and have a reward. if something didn’t happen you will get coaching. But there is a consistent repetition of these tools, so that you can start out not knowing what you’re doing ;-) and leave feeling practiced and empowered.
Get your questions answered every week, have accountability and have systematic clear action steps that will be about an hour of work per week.
Here’s what’s included:
6 weekly group calls
Recordings of the calls and content fo’ life
Email access to me for your support during the program
A intimate community of like-minded creatives just like you
If you sign up as one of the first 5 participants, you will receive a FREE 90 minute 1:1 coaching session to implement what you are learning and get through the blocks that are unique to you! ($300 value)
Why this program is different:
Unlike left-brain thinkers who get strucutre, I’m just like you. Being a creative colorful, spiritual intuitive butterfly-like person most of my life, I really have been through the struggle and come out the other side. That’s why I feel unlike other programs I really get you and can help you overcome the nuinces that other rigid programs might not see for you. But i’ve been there, and I can help you out while still having you create what is unique for you and can actually work.
Also, this is a small group program limited to 10 people that will have you feeling seen, heard, and can use these tools in a unique way to you with personal coaching and feedback.
In this 6 week course we will cover…
— The energetics behind time so that you can finally work with it (rather than against it) to accomplish your goals
— The blocks and myths that are keeping you stuck- even though right now you think it is what you need to do to be successful. Nuh uh! Not for you, Creative!
— How to stop being a perfectionist and still get what you need done, done.
— How to finally move your projects ahead, get them in the world, and feel in control of your life.
Here's what we'll cover:
Module 1: get clear on your priorities
Getting clear on your desires, and how to actually make them happen. I will teach you how you can make sure you calendar in what’s most important to you FIRST, while still having plenty of time for what you need to do in a job or with the rest of life. (this has been a game changer for me).
Your transformation: feel empowered, not too pushed, and slide into change. actually start spending time on what’ simportant and have a plan and structure to get it done.
Module 2: whats in the way of you doing this yourself… and how you finally can
The beliefs and judgements about yourself that are keeping you stuck, and myths busted about time management and you fitting into it.
Your Transformation: Have consistnet time management without being hard on yourself and actually start workin’ your dream in joy and focused purpose.
Module 3: get a plan.
How to be creative, while also having structure: finding a time management that totally works with you. I’ll be sharing all that I’ve learned so that you can apply what intuitively fits for you— without overwhelm, just choosing 1 to try out for 1 week.
Your Transformation: stop trying to fit in a box that doesn’t work for you- become the boss of your life, let yourself be unique and find and work what works for you! Feel confident in how you run your life rather than messing up.
Module 4: The energetics of time.
Spiritual tactics to time that can have you leaping
Your Transformation: learn how to bend time using quantum physics, and no longer feel like time is against or outside of you. — instead feel the pleasure, peace, confidence and relief of knowing you are in control of your life AND over time.
Module 5: having your space be your creative bliss pad.
Your physical space: why it’s important and how it is effecting your focus (and how to declutter without it taking over your time… or your life! While still living the benefits of having a clear space).
Your Transformation: having a pyshcial space that doesn’t freak you out anymore or overwhelm you! take a deep breath out when you walk into your space, without getting totally overwhelmed because you’ll have a system!
Module 6: What to do when life gets in the way:
How to actually stick to a schedule and system that works for you when unexpected things come in the way! This is how to handle it and stay the course… in YOUR own unique way!
Transformation: actually stick to what you started and leave this course feeling on top of your game and with boundaries in your life! Spend more time on the good stuff that matters to you most! And feel confident around what you did get done.
Here’s what others are saying about Colleens coaching…
For a long time I was unhappy and unfulfilled with my work and also my passion for acting. I didn’t take myself very seriously ad felt like my goals were distant. Working with Colleen was tremendously eye opening and wonderfully constructive. Upon out initial session, she helped me realize two very important passions that i had been putting off. it was a real wake-up call and had me thinking for the immediate time after. I felt a sense of urgency when I normally procrastinated. and through simple actions it became more apparent that I could achieve them.”

Now it’s time to tackle my schedule and fit “applying to grad school” in the holes where my job(s) weren’t. And it was as simple as this; Colleen writes a schedule for me, and I follow it. She tells me to put it somewhere that I will see it all the time, so I tape it to the console of my car. Now - I have a planner, and I’m perfectly capable of doing this myself.

What happens if you don’t have time managment?
Friend, let’s be real.
Time is the most precious assett we have, and we don’t always realize it before it’s gone. Whether we like it or not, time is slipping away from us—
The book you wanted to write may be collecting dust and you still don’t have your manuscript after a full year of saying you would…
Your son is finally in high school and just yesterday you said you’d spend more time with him, but again you haven’t followed through
You are still working at a restaurant you said you’d quick a year ago, and yet still are there
What happens if you never change?
Out of all of the things you focus on— if you haven’t reached your goal yet— this is the thing you should probably focus on.
And if you haven’t changed on your own so far, how will you change on your own today?
It wasn’t until I had accountability and direction that finally my life started to change.
And out of ALL the areas of our lives, our time management affects every other area, and is the one that you really can’t get back.
So! Instead of this future, do yourself a favor for those you love, your purpose, and your dream and decide to take action to have the change.
What others are saying:
I have FUN now. Before coaching with Colleen, I was SO hard on myself, always judging my actions and not giving myself full credit. I wasn't kind to myself as much as I tried to be I didn't realize how simple it was to get there. Colleen worked with me to help me understand that I already have all that it takes to accomplish what I need and the purpose I need to fulfill in my life. She taught me how to stay positive and what tools I can use when certain situations come up.
