Maureen Sweatman

I teach everyone how to
choose joy every day

Break through your limiting beliefs and find balance at the intersection of wellness and career exploration

Make a choice
do it scared

Time to Make a Change

Change is hard. We don’t make changes because we let fear dictate our choices. Chances are you know what change you need to make, but something is stopping you. Too often we prefer what’s familiar to the unknown even when we know that familiar place is causing us pain. Our fears become barriers to applying our strengths. I’m here to tell you to do it scared.

Whether you want to relieve pain points in life and get unstuck or need to leave a toxic work environment, but don’t know where you’ll go when you do, you are capable of making the change you need to make. And you don’t have to do it alone.

The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves are what keep us stuck and in pain. That is where I come in. I help you cut through the noise of your own thoughts and feelings so you can move forward in the direction you need to go.

How many times have you thought to yourself, I’m not good enough? How many times have you felt unworthy of the next chapter of your life you know should be yours? It’s time to make a choice to move forward. I’ll be your accountability partner and biggest cheerleader every step of the way.

don'T let fear or the idea of going
alone keep you from trying

Change Coach

Like most folks my age, I’ve had several different roles over the years and have gone through multiple career transitions. Six years ago, I had a wild idea to create this coaching practice. With a Master of Divinity and an MBA from Emory University, Joyful Living Coaching became the perfect manifestation of who I am and what I’ve trained for. I have now added credentialing from the International Coaching Federation and love supporting others in their development as they evolve through the different stages of both their careers and lives. My own transition into this role has helped me face fears and lean into my power and strength in ways I couldn’t have imagined 10 or 20 years ago and I am so happy to be able to share that with you.

Client Love

After working with Maureen, I now talk about how I work and why my work excites me, instead of just listing a job title. Her guidance gave me the clarity and confidence to search for and achieve the next step in my career.

Financial Services/career transition

This coaching offering (by my employer) is helping me feel engaged and giving me a sense of loyalty to an employer that I thought no longer existed in the workplace.

Regional ops manager/leadership

I accepted a Director of Product Development role today with the company that you helped me interview prep for. I cannot thank you enough for your support and guidance through my job search process. You really helped me get focused and zero in on what I truly wanted. My new role is exactly what I envisioned after our strategy session. I appreciate your help so much! I recommend you to everyone I know who is job hunting.

Marketing/Job search strategy

Maureen was invaluable in shaping my interview strategy and interview preparation. in a matter of a couple sessions I felt I had the minset, toolkit and confidence to perform in all of my interview opportunities. She assessed my situation quickly and was highly pragmatic in her recommended approach - and most importantly, she provided me with increased knowledge on how to situation myself in a position I truly aspired for. If you are looking for sometime to provide advice tailored to your professional skills, career ambitions and personal aspirations, look no further than Maureen!
