“From Teen Mom to Successful Coach: One Woman’s Journey”
On the Beyond Adversity Podcast with Dr. Brad Miller (DrBradMiller.com), Leslie Hope Holthoff, (www.lesliehopecoaching.com)a divorce and co-parenting coach, shared her experiences navigating through the difficult process of divorce and co-parenting.
Leslie’s story is one of resilience, perseverance, and hope that has inspired many others to break the cycle of madness in divorce and co-parenting.
Leslie’s journey started when she became pregnant at the age of 15 and gave birth to her son at the age of 16. When she was in her 20s, she got married and had another child. However, by the age of 26, she had divorced her husband and became a single mom of two sons from two different fathers, which was a difficult challenge for her. Co-parenting that time was even more challenging as she has no prior experience on it.
Despite her struggles, Leslie was determined to make the best of her situation and did her best to provide for her two sons. She spent a long time figuring things out the hard way, but eventually, she became good at co-parenting. She used her experiences and turned them into a coaching business to help others navigate the difficult process of divorce and co-parenting.
Leslie’s coaching business “Leslie Hope Coaching”, focuses on divorce and co-parenting. Her clients range from those who have been divorced for years to dads struggling with their teenage daughters. She helps co-parents figure out custody arrangements, deal with emergencies, and work on communication with their ex-partner. Leslie understands that co-parenting is not an easy process, and each situation is unique, so she offers one-on-one coaching tailored to the specific needs of her clients.
Leslie’s coaching services start with a free discovery call to get to know the client and their needs. She wants to ensure that the client is a good fit for her coaching services and vice versa before proceeding with formal coaching services. She believes that each client’s situation is unique, and the coaching should be customized based on their specific circumstances.
One of the most significant challenges for anyone going through divorce and co-parenting is the mindset. It’s easy to get caught up in negative thoughts, but Leslie believes that focusing on small things, like catching a sunrise or having basic comforts, can help appreciate life and lead to growth and positivity. She practices gratitude for what she has, and it is a way to appreciate life even during overwhelming times.
Leslie’s positivity has been so strong that some friends have advised her to tone it down, but she believes that her mindset has helped her get through many tough situations in life. She believes that spiritual experiences lead to true fulfillment, and the lack of fulfillment is a widespread epidemic.
One of the interesting points that Leslie made was that lack of fulfillment is caused by a lack of understanding of what fulfillment means and what it is. She explains that being fulfilled means feeling joy and contentment even during difficult times. She encourages people to understand the experiences of others to find fulfillment in life.
Leslie also wrote a book called “The Parent’s Guidebook to the Modern Divorce” that focuses on her experiences up until her divorce. The book offers tips and advice on how to navigate through the difficult process of divorce and co-parenting. Leslie plans to write more books covering the next 20 years to share her experiences further on the topic.
Her book is not just for teen moms, but for anyone who is co-parenting. Many people who have read her book have told Leslie that they read the whole book in one sitting, which is a huge compliment for any writer. Even though her life has changed, and she has moved on from her past, Leslie’s experiences have helped her coach others on dealing with co-parenting struggles.
In the interview, Leslie was asked about her coaching process, and she explained that she doesn’t help people decide whether to get divorced. Instead, she offers support once the decision to get divorced has been made. She said that co-parenting is a challenging process and that once the decision to co-parent has been made, it’s important to prepare for conversations with lawyers and set goals for the future.
Leslie’s coaching process is designed to help clients work on communication with their ex-partner, which is essential for successful co-parenting. She is available for one-on-one coaching sessions and emergencies and aims to offer a supportive “bestie” relationship to help clients through the divorce process.
Leslie’s coaching business is more than just a service. It is a passion that is rooted in her experiences and her desire to help others. She is currently studying joint shared custody for her dissertation because she wants to understand its impact on children as they grow up, something that was not taken into consideration in her own experience co-parenting.
Leslie’s story is one of resilience, perseverance, and hope that has inspired many others to break the cycle of madness in divorce and co-parenting. Her journey is a testament to the human spirit and the power of positive thinking. She has shown that it is possible to overcome life’s challenges and come out stronger on the other side. Her coaching business is a reflection of her passion for helping others and her belief that co-parenting can be a successful process with the right mindset, communication, and support.
