How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a Coach? 


To answer this question, I will go back to a big part of my story and that is my struggle with Autoimmune disease.  it's probably best that I share with you a defining moment that brought me to where I am today   The defining moment in my life happened in April of 2014.

I had been increasingly sick starting in my mid 20's, and had spent fifteen years looking for someone to tell me what's wrong so they could fix it.  I was stuck in severe chronic fatigue, with first a misdiagnosis (and treatment) and then an undiagnosed illness, I had been living a progressively limited life for 20 years.  Finally, in 2012 I had yet another relapse and found myself on disability and bedridden for 2 years. By this time, I weighed 265 pounds. I was suffering from over 64 symptoms at my worst. I was failing as a mother and wife. I was broken. 

BUT, I had not given up hope. I had only exhausted everything I knew how to do. WHEN, one day I picked up a book I was reading for the third time, I read the forward! What a revelation. The author also had chronic fatigue and she was now well! IF she could reverse her symptoms, so could I. THIS also taught me the power of a book on someone's life. 

My revelation was that no one was coming to rescue me. The minute I started to shift that one belief, I realized that I was being run and controlled by unconscious beliefs and FEAR! My body had been telling me now for almost 20 years that something wasn't right. So, I needed to start somewhere. And for me, although my health was completely deteriorated, I needed to start on my emotions.

I had allowed my unconscious beliefs of low self-worth and self sacrifice to be in charge.  The key turning point was that I was no longer willing to sacrifice myself.

I began to reclaim my self worth and  I turned to a trusted friend who is a holistic nutritionist and she suggested the autoimmune protocol.  I eliminated everything that was blocking the healing. My body returned to its normal weight of 165 lbs. This process took me about 1.5 years but I started feeling strong only a few weeks into it. It was so much easier than I imagined. 

Once I trusted my body again, I needed to learn how to trust my dream. I started with buying, renovating and running a vacation rental. Being an entrepreneur challenged a lot of my old thinking and made me believe that anything is possible. Which brings me to my coaching career.

I had been hosting a wellness group for over 2 years already as well as doing private coaching BUT I never saw this as something I would do professionally! I had been living the rewards of following my intuition for 3 years already and I was being called to take this deeper. In 2018 I began my coaching business and NOW living my dream is how I help others live theirs. 

I keep my health as a priority. I protect this by ensuring I keep following my dream. It is my strong belief that connection to your true self is a vital key component to a healed life. Our habits are what keeps us going and mindset drives the ship, I still work with coaches myself, that push me deeper in releasing what is not working. I wake up every day excited to get to work. FOR my work is my play. It is the ONE thing that keeps me connected. 

The last shift happened, not long after I published my first book. This was the year the pandemic begin, I had to spend 6 months living with my Dad due to his health issues and I still became a bestselling author and international award winner. 

I realized that most coaches, have trouble prioritizing their writing and a vital force in their business, but those lessons for healing, were actually lessons for success. 

When a funny thing happened. My book coach and copywriter, needed help finishing her book. And within weeks (after a long year of not finishing) we had it done. 

She simply said, you make everything easy! You have to do this for all my clients. And that was the beginning of helping coaches create content.  


What it’s like to work with you?

For content development and  business coaching, you can expect I will simplify the process, give you your next clear step, and help you take action. You will get insight, clarity and confidence. 

“Before working with Darlene I was hesitant because I couldn’t see where I would have time or how I could make room for this course. I did NOT feel ready...Darlene’s balanced approach of connection and pragmatic was exactly what I needed. Every call, every post, every email, Darlene has a way of reframing that left me with a whole new vision of myself every time. She is a great listener BUT quickly and gently guides you out of old thinking into action! Just what I needed. “ Laurel T. 

How quickly can I expect results?

That depends on how much time you have to give. Producing content is time consuming. That is why, a clear mind map and content strategy will save so much writing time and editing costs down the line.  Some clients are ready to go and we set up a few VIP sessions and in very short time frame everything is done. For others, the creative process needs more time to churn.   

How can I guarantee myself that I will succeed in record time?

Do all of your homework. Be totally committed to your success. Understand that this is a process that works if you take action and implement all of the steps. 

Who are your clients?

I work with entrepreneurs and coaches who want to go deeper into their message and create a more aligned business.

What makes you different from other "content coaches"?

Together with Nicole, I have developed my own system, Content Generator Magic, where we map out ideas separately from the writing process. Our full 5 step process is:

  1. ideas

  2. outline

  3. draft

  4. edit

  5. publish 

I am also a certified Deep Thought Specialist. Go to the bottom of the page to see all my full personality profile and credentials. 

What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?

I work with women  and men who are ready to become an authority in their field and need help with the accountability and courage to get there.  

If you are willing to show up and go deeper, we will get amazing things done. 

For what type of person are your programs NOT going to work?

Firstly, I adjust the style of coaching to the goal. I love the membership for the on-going content. If you have a specific project, then 1:1 is best.  

This is not for you, if you want to hand your content over to someone and have them write it for you. I believe the best content comes from you. 


Does this really work?

Yes! There is a magic that happens when you experience the "gold nuggets" you already have inside you. 


What results can I expect?

You can claim your own words and start producing  your own intellectual property. No more following, people will be copying your memes and quotes. 

Darlene, based on everything I’ve read and heard about you, I know you’re the one I want to learn from. What are my options for getting started with you?

Congratulations on making a decision for success! I'm happy to work with you to achieve your business writing goals... The best way to work with me is 1:1. If cost is a consideration, you can join our membership community. 

OK, I’m ready to do this for myself, but I have a couple of additional questions. Can I call you?

Yes, if you have a couple of questions, just email me at [email protected]   or book a free  strategy session call on my calendar here and I’ll be happy to walk you through the different options to see which one will be the very best for you. I can’t wait to see you succeed and am honored to be the one to help you. Let’s get going!

Many Blessings,
