Today we’d like to introduce you to Sona Tank.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Sona. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I grew up in India and completed my education, majoring in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering from Pune University, India. I enjoyed and thrived working in Information Technology in India and USA, for more than 15 years.
A few years back, with 2 kids under the age of 10, I was trying to walk the fine balance between personal and professional life. I had reached a point where I had absolutely no social life or hobbies, no personal time. After I lost my Mom unexpectedly, my grief counselor helped me re-evaluate my priorities and coached me back to what felt like a lighted path.
After I regained my balance, I felt a calling to coaching. It felt very natural to what I was already doing, hearing out close friends and family so it leads to possibilities. Getting certified felt the next natural progression.
I got certified as a Life Coach from Life Purpose Institute (LPI). They are an Accredited Coach Training (ACTP) Program with the International Coach Federation (ICF), an umbrella organization for coaching organizations and professionals.
The tools, processes and philosophy I trained for, through the LPI coaching process reinforced my determination.
I am constantly educating myself about new holistic strategies to prevent & reduce stress, and re-gain more equanimity in my life. I like to borrow from the powers of intention, mindfulness, compassion, and the fearlessness of letting go, what doesn’t serve us anymore, to reach forward.
Untying some chains to move forward, easier said than done, right? Not with the right help.
Currently, I live with my loving family in the North Fulton suburbs of Atlanta, USA. I strive to strike the right balance in my own life everyday using the same tools as I mentioned above. I love spending time with my family and friends. At the same time, I would feel lost without practicing yoga, cooking healthy meals, gardening, reading and listening to music on a very regular basis.
Great, 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?
It has been a very rocky journey. I have had to balance taking care of my health, my kids, household and starting a new venture. I have had several setbacks, still do but I pull myself back on the saddle, thanks to the out of this world support from friends and family.
After being in a job, the mindset to run a business is a completely different mindset. I have had to learn to set my own goals and deal with everything that it takes to run a business. I treat it as more of my passion so I don’t lose the motivation.
Worthy Journeys Life Coaching – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
This is more like my life’s purpose with passion. I meet a lot of women who don’t have support to achieve their goals and thrive in their lives. Since I have been in the same place I understand the struggles and the patience needed to see results.
I am very non-judgmental and supportive. I treat all my clients as a human being first and foremost.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
When I see the glint in the eye of the women I have coached, I know that they have shifted from their mindset to a more positive place.
