Sarah McAtee

Law of Attraction Life Coach

Our main objective here at the National Coach Academy is to enable aspiring coaches to reach their full professional potential. One of the most effective ways to educate students about the world of coaching is by offering them a window into the world of real, practicing coaches and showing them all the different ways coaches make a difference in the lives of their clients.

We hope today’s interview adds another insightful glimpse into the dynamic world of coaching.

Today we are interviewing Sarah McAtee. Sarah is a Life Coach based in Los Angeles, California and working with clients worldwide.

NCA: Can you describe your coaching practice and the kinds of clients you typically work with?

Sarah: I am a Law of Attraction Life Coach. Meaning my coaching deals directly with the subconscious mind and the beliefs it holds. “What you believe about, you bring about”. Everything that you have ever created in your life, you did because of the belief system you have subconsciously programmed.

So I teach my clients how to use the Law of Attraction to get them whatever they desire. I typically work with those who have a basic to advanced knowledge of Law of Attraction. They know the “what” but they don’t know the “how”, I am there to bridge the gap for them =)

NCA: What initially got you interested in this career path and what kind of degree or certifications did you need to complete, if any?

Sarah: Funny enough, I actually didn’t choose this path, it chose me. I was 13years old the first time someone suggested I be a Life Coach. From then on it kept showing up and simultaneously the career path I was pursuing, crumpled. That’s the beauty of Law of Attraction.

There are a lot of different types of Life Coaching certification programs out there that you can choose from. I personally got certified with a Law of Attraction based Life Coaching company in 2015, and although the company is no longer around, it’s still some of the best training I have ever gotten. I would suggest looking into a few of them and seeing which one speaks to you the most. Just remember that although getting certified and having an education is important, clients don’t hire you because of where you got certified, they hire you because you resonate with them and you get them results =)

Remember that there is only one you. No one else has your energetic footprint, no one else has your chemical makeup, therefore don’t waste your time on comparison.

NCA: What is the most rewarding part of your career and on the flip side, what is the most challenging aspect of the work that you do?

Sarah: Most rewarding part, is definitely seeing the transformation my clients have on their thinking. They start to word things differently, they start to catch themselves when they are going down a mental path that doesn’t serve them, they start seeing situations from a place of responsibility causing them to stand fully in their power, and of course they start to attract amazing people and opportunities into their life.

Most challenging part is the energy work that comes with giving 110 percent of yourself to your clients. I spend a lot of my off time, doing rejuvenating activities so that I can continue to show up fully for my clients.

NCA: Can you think of mentor who was most vital to your success as a coach? In what ways did this mentor help you to thrive in your career?

Sarah: I honestly have had so many amazing mentors that have played huge roles in my journey, but there is one in particular who has been on my journey since day 1. She was the president of the life coaching company I got certified by and had the amazing opportunity to be her personal assistant. Working closely with her, and seeing how she handled conflicts and the way she would respond to difficult people (or as I call it, people who have a lot of mental programs that don’t serve them), was the most eye opening for me. She never let anyone’s programs trigger her. She is a wonderful example of what good mental programming is supposed to look like, and is someone I continuously aspire to be like.

NCA: Finally, what advice would you give someone looking to get started in the career path that you chose?

Sarah: I would say two things:

1) Remember that there is only one you. No one else has your energetic footprint, no one else has your chemical makeup, therefore don’t waste your time on comparison.

2) There is more than enough of everything (clients, money, resources etc) in the world, so don’t buy into that lie.
