Interview With Bailey Frumen

Before working with anyone, from your dentist to a life coach, it’s always my recommendation to dive a little deeper. It is important to be able to ask questions, get to know who they are, and their own personal WHY that informs how they serve others. Here is my deep dive, intimate interview that I hope helps to answer any questions you might have and illuminate a bit more about who I am. Enjoy!

How long have you been doing what you do and how did you get to be a lifestyle design coach?

To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment and story of my journey that brought me to where I am today, coaching high-achieving women like you to create your ideal lifestyle.

That defining moment in my life happened in mid 2012. I was working 6-7 days a week, 13-14 hour days as a psychotherapist. I split my time between working in a school and with a bustling traditional practice with a very long waiting list. From the outside, it looked like everything a practitioner could ask for.

My husband and I decided to start a family, as a frequent traveler, I knew that any time you plan to take a journey, it’s always  best to get your car tuned-up before a road trip. I decided to take this same approach to having a baby. At my annual, my gynecologist gave me the green light for baby making. Next, I went to the general practitioner for a wellness check-up. As far as GP’s go, she said, you are healthy as a horse, good to go with one minor exception. My stress levels were through the roof.

Here I was, giving to everyone but myself, something had to change. Even more, if I was really honest with myself, my work wasn’t always lighting me up. I did my best work and felt the most inspired when working with ambitious women who wanted to up level their lives and learn to live life on their own terms.

During this process, I had an epiphany! In order to begin living life on my own terms I had to get super clear about my vision for my ideal lifestyle. This meant marrying my wisdom for helping others with my passion for travel. I shifted my practice from bricks & mortar to online so I could best extend my reach to help inspired women around the globe. I have since made a commitment to immerse myself into connecting with women to spread the message of clarity and life balance.

Since then, I’ve worked with countless private clients, spoke in front of many groups, held more than a dozen live events and create the Inspired Living Program for ambitious women.

I am living the life of my dreams which allows me to best serve and up level my brilliant and beautiful clients.

 

Who are your clients exactly?

I work with women just like you—who feel inspired and called to make a change and desire loving guidance to create a clear roadmap to have exactly the life of their dreams. That said, the professionals I’ve worked with run the whole gamut. From women who have a dream and are feeling ready to step away from corporate and into a business of their own, to women who already have a business and are ready to take their work/life balance to the next level. Is this you?

 

How are you different from other coaches?

Although we will touch upon time management and other “business coach-y” things, our work together is meant to be transformational to your whole life. From my work and experience as a psychotherapist, I like to use a strengths-based, ecosystems perspective. This means that together we look at your whole life—from your inherent strengths and talents to all of the elements that go into creating a life you love—from career and finances to relationships, spirituality, and overall well-being.

Together, we define your personal roadmap so that you can effortlessly step into your ideal lifestyle design.

 

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

This is my favorite question—I do my best work with women who are excited , ambitious, and most importantly curious about all that life has to offer. Being a high-achieving go-getter myself, I’m known to work best with other inspired high-achieving women who are ready to get going and want to know the exact steps to take to escape overwhelm and stress and into everything your heart desires.

Working with me is all about intention based action steps, we’ll work intimately together to get you to the next level of your vision. Together is the optimal word—we can move mountains but neither one of us can do it alone.

 

Who isn’t a match in working with you?

Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and handpick my clients, choosing to lovingly turn women away who aren’t ready to work together to make big shifts. In my mind, it would be unfair to begin the journey of coaching because they simply would not get the results without taking the action steps to get there.

Another type of personality I won’t work with are complainers. This is someone who constantly make excuses when faced with challenges and does not trust the recommendations I give them because they won’t do the work. Transformation does not happen overnight, it takes time, effort, and energy.

If we’re not a match right now, it’s absolutely okay. Do yourself two favors:

  1. Open your planner and schedule 2 hours with yourself to get clear. Use this time to ask yourself two important questions:

“What do I want?”

“ What do I need to do to get there?”

       2. Sign up for my free lifestyle design strategies over email [click here to subscribe]. The free information will get you started toward your goals unit you are ready to work with me 1:1.

 

Doing these two simple things will really help you get primed for our work. When you are ready, call me and we’ll get you started, I will be here when you need me.

 

What exactly is lifestyle design coaching and what does it include?

Lifestyle design coaching is the practice of changing your life to achieve your ideal work/life balance. It means getting the tools to help you achieve clarity about your vision, purpose,  and what you truly want to do with your life. Lifestyle design coaching is about setting intentions about your whole life and taking conscious action steps to live an inspired life in line with your vision. Lifestyle design is an active process of employing strategies, setting goals, and staying accountable to moving the dial to create the transformation you have always wanted.

Together, I will teach you countless tools and strategies that are essential to eliminating stress, gaining clarity, and changing your life.

 

Does coaching really work?

Yes! The result of stepping out of overwhelm, stress, and getting super clear about what you want from life then taking the exact steps you need to move in the direction of your dreams makes your time and efforts toward transformation all worth while. Want to know more, see my client testimonials.

 

What results can I expect?

You can expect to create true clarity and massive action around your biggest goals and desires. Using the tools learned through coaching, you will be able to take aligned action to foster change and sustainable forward momentum.

From our work together, many clients have shared finding the courage to start making big shifts in their lives by discovering what is possible and taking small steps toward your goals and dreams everyday that will lead to major growth.  Together we will clearly define your purpose, discover your vision and provide a roadmap of how to make it happen.

Additionally, in our work together, you can expect to begin letting go of what is no longer serving you including fear and unrealistic expectations that often hold you back from your true potential.  We will work together to create pathways for you to become “unstuck” by learning tools to help you reframe your thoughts and determine why these changes are important in your journey ahead. Our coaching will allow you the space to make small changes and shifts, one step at a time. Kicking overwhelm to the curb and allowing you to step into the woman you are truly meant to be.

Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?

Absolutely! Please go to my client testimonial page and read all of them. See which ones you feel drawn to, either the person has gotten the results you want to get too, or perhaps because that person is in a similar profession. Then feel free to reach out and email them to ask what they got from working with me and my programs.

 

How quickly can I expect results?

Obviously, this depends on how ready you are to take this transformational journey and how much you put into the work we do together. That said, virtually all clients see results within the first few sessions in the form of a significant decrease in stress and a big shift in achieving clarity.

 

How can I guarantee these same results for myself?

Short answer—do the work. Be totally focused on moving the dial every day to get closer to your ideal life. Understand that it’s not a “quick fix,” coaching isn’t magic, and it can take unto 6 months for you to plan the seeds of change that will grow into the garden you can enjoy. All my clients who have diligently applied every lifestyle design strategy have successfully stepped into their clarity, vision, and glance in much less time than they would have on their own.
