Welcome! I’m Carrie Charles. My goal is to help you break down the barriers, find your power and create a life you truly love.
I am a life coach, but really I’m a combination of a strategic planner, mind re-programmer, spiritual muse and drill instructor, all with a big dose of love.
Years ago, I was a Certified Financial Planner. My clients would come to me for financial advice and then talk about all areas of their life – money, relationships, fitness, spirituality – they were all connected. When one was out of order, their life didn’t work. I realized that they need more than just a financial plan, they need a life plan. Along with the life plan, they needed someone to help them overcome obstacles, hold them accountable and help them reach their goals. This insight, along with my life purpose, compelled me to become a life coach.
I am committed to YOU being happy and fulfilled- in work, love, body and spirit. In a nutshell, I show you how to dream big, create a plan for your life then hold you accountable for your daily actions. I remove your limitations, balance you, measure your results and Voila! Your plan becomes a reality.
I have spent my entire life studying personal growth and development. My training includes the Certified Financial Planner designation, Master Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), Certified Strategic Intervention Coach with Cloe Madanes and Anthony Robbins, Spiritual Psychology Masters Program with University of Santa Monica, 25 years studying with Landmark Education, the United States Marine Corps and the school of hard knocks; all of which has allowed me to help hundreds of people create lives they love.
My story is one of tragedy and triumph. I grew up in a trailer park in Tennessee helping my mom clean houses. She made my clothes on her Singer sewing machine. I’ll never forget the day my dog ran away. I laid on the grass and looked up at the sky, begging God to bring back my dog. I received a message that day that I would go through horrible things in my life, but it was for a reason – to help people overcome adversity and live happy lives. At 9 years old, I knew my purpose.
I was abused by my father and my stepfather. My mom attempted suicide when I was 11. I found her note and saved her life. By the time I reached my teen years, I was a mess. At 17, my father had a stroke and I had to make the decision to unplug his life support. I was deeply depressed, dropped out of college and joined the Marine Corps, desperate for direction.
I got married at 20 and was beaten by my husband. I got strong, got a job, walked to work until I could afford a car and got out. I started a financial planning business that became a huge success, with 350 clients and a six-figure income at age 25
Over the next few years, I lost my mom to suicide, both my sisters and my stepfather. I was depressed and felt like my world was caving in, but I knew I had a purpose to fulfill. Nothing stopped me.
My company grew and I married an amazing man and had 2 incredible children. We created a wildly successful company, had a huge house and a jet and a limo. I felt like Cinderella.
Then tragedy struck again. My marriage ended and my son was diagnosed with cancer at age 11. My faith was tested, but I stayed strong and continued to use my tools to get me through. I was determined to create an amazing life in spite of all my loss. Then God gave me a miracle and saved my son’s life.
Through it all, I have created the life of my dreams. My kids are healthy and happy. I have extraordinary relationships, a 7-figure net worth, a high level of fitness and a successful company that gives me freedom and joy.
I am grateful for the pain for it has been a path to fulfill my purpose of helping people overcome adversity and live their dreams.
Thanks for being here. Let me know how I can help you.
