How each program works…


What to expect:

In this session, Connie takes a FUN, DEEP DIVE into your child’s mindset, perspective on life and gets to know them…all while engaging and viewing them as the powerful young adult they are meant to be (regardless of their age)!

Connie’s goal ALWAYS, is to empower your child to self-sufficiency and independance. Why? Because she knows, and speaks at nauseum on the fact, that the only person guaranteed to be with your child forever, is NOT you the parent, NOT their future partner, or NOT even their kids. NOPE. It’s just them.

Everything Connie teaches is with the mindset to empower your child with the tools and techniques (that will change the trajectory of their entire life) to be happy, confident and love life without needing anyone or anything in order to do so.

Connie also learns about your child’s view on school, school subjects, grades, friends, social life, outside activities (if any), music taste and all that type of FUN stuff specifc to your child.

She is able to identify where your child is selling themselves short and not even realize it. Why? BECAUSE EVERYONE DOES THIS. It’s that insane habit everyone learns over time of being hard on yourself, focusing on your negatives and/or what you want to improve about yourself.  That’s just one habit Connie picks up on and there are SO many more people don’t realize.

Throughout the session, Connie is her usual, atypical Start Loving Life self. Which means every session is upbeat, positive and fun. That’s Connie’s lifestyle. That’s what and how she teaches!

At the conclusion of the session, your child is going to be fully aware of why they haven’t been feeling good (because they have been down on themselves). AND how to start feeling better (by changing how they think). It’s as simple as that!

This session is a gamechanger as your child will finally realize the amount of control they have over how they feel and how their life plays out. They will discover it all has to do with the way they think. That’s it.

It’s at this point, if Connie feels your child is open, receptive and eager to learn more, she will recommend the start of her Start Loving Life 30 Day Program. If she feels (for any reason she is not a good fit) she will tell you that as well.

This session is the gateway to the Start Loving Life philosophy and pre-requisite to work with Connie and the Start Loving Life coaching programs. 

Start Loving Life® "Introductory" Discovery Session

(1st Step for ALL New Clients) 

Introductory 60 Minute DEEP-DIVE Session to get your child started on the path to Start Loving Life!

This session is the gateway to the Start Loving Life philosophy and pre-requisite to work with Connie and the Start Loving Life coaching programs. 


What your child will learn:

Why your child’s past (good, bad, or indifferent) ACTUALLY benefits them AND how they have been allowing it to hold them back without even realizing it!

How to understand, value and release any negative thinking/ situation from the past and move forward towards their future in a bigger, more positive way.

How to finally release and understand the underlying value of every (so-called) negative experience by letting it go…once and for all. (Examples, bullying, friend issues, bad grade(s), social media drama)

How there is ONLY ONE TRUE answer to feeling secure, hardcore confidence and happiness and that is by learning how to love themselves (REGARDLESS of anything outside of themselves). Examples, grades, friends, outside accolades, other’s opinions, you- the parent.

The misconception about what self-love is AND isn’t.

Discover who they are and who they are meant to be! NOT who they think they “should” be.

Discover what they love! NOT what they “should” love.

How to identify those hard-core, powerful characteristics they were born with, that they have no clue about.


Start Loving Life® 30 Day Program

(Foundation Course)
Part 1

This course covers self-love, the most important principle your child must learn in order to feel better.

The introduction of self-love in your child’s life will prepare them for the next phase taught in the 60 Day Program, establishing hardcore confidence.

It is only when a child learns to truly LOVE themself first, that they are able to have the confidence to go after life in a bigger, better way.


Translating your child’s NEWFOUND self-love to hardcore confidence (within themselves and around others).

What your child will learn:

How NOT to care what anyone else thinks. Not to tbe easily offended by negative words/ actions/ behavior of others, EVER, and just see it for what it is. A person who is not feeling good about themselves hence exhibiting the negative behavior .

How the relationships around them (parents, family, friends) improves by improving the one with themselves. How they treat others is always a reflection of how they are treating themselves (on the inside without realizing it).

Why complaining works against them and how to speak more positively about themselves and life!

How to attract and appreciate true friends/relationships that are aligned with their newly developing Start Loving Life self. 

Learn from ALL life experiences. Not to be easily discouraged and instead value the experience and take-away in order to move forward faster, bigger and better.

How to use their new positive mindset to step up their social game and opportunities by going outside their (past mindset) comfort zone.

Start Loving Life® 60 Day Program

Part 2
Extension of the 30 Day Program

This course includes the basics to establishing hardcore confidence for your child to grow, strengthen the relationship with themselves and with others.

Hardcore confidence will allow your child to thrive outside their old comfort zone as a result of their new improved positive mindset.

This program prepares your child for the final phase of the Start Loving Life 90 Day Program that includes Super-charged Self-esteem. (If they choose to continue).



Having your child use their NEW hard-core confidence skills to SUPER-CHARGED self-esteem.

Your child will learn: 

Appreciate the practice of feeling good on a more consistent basis. The more they practice the skills learned throughout the program the easier it becomes. 

To feel so confident in their ability to bounce-back from any of life’s curveballs bigger and better than before.

How to become their own biggest fan and cheerleader so they don’t need to rely on anyone or anything for praise and validation.

How to step up their A-game in the world of life where they revive, revamp and re-energize their life while looking forward to NEW experiences, NEW people and NEW possibilities that await as a result of their new Start Loving Life mindet.

The practice of being a CERTIFIED LIFER, spreading LOVEEEEEE, HOPE, INSPIRATION and POSITIVITY to themselves, the world and the people they surround…WAHOOOOOOOO!!!!

Start Loving Life® 90 Day Program

Part 3- Complete Program
Extension of the 60 Day Program

This course includes the key basics to super-charged self-esteem. Now that your child is feeling better by self-love and their new found hardcore confidence, it is extremely important for your child to understand their self esteem.

Hardcore confidence is the ability to do something well or try something new. But it is your super-charged self-esteem (the belief in yourself) that allows your child to feel good REGARDLESS if they do something well or NOT.

Super-charged self-esteem is the maintaining of doing their very best to feel good, while trying new things, appreciating all experiences, for the experience NOT for the end result.

Super-charged self-esteem is also what allows your child to bounce-back from any negative (and ALL) situation(s) bigger and better than before.

Once your child begins to feel better on a more consistent basis they are going to feel happier. BUT there will also be times in life where they are going to experience some  curve-balls.

Life is not about avoiding those experiences BUT instead understanding how to navigate, process those emotions and move forward in a more positive way. Your child’s super-charged self-esteem will allow them to do just that and quicker!

This 90 Day Program is the complete Start Loving Life Program. Once your child completes the full program they are entered into the LIFER phase of Start Loving Life.

That means they will be invited to more advanced programs when they become avaialble.

How Do I know If Connie’s Coaching is Right For My Child?

Connie offers specific coaching programs that are results-oriented. If you are anything like Connie, she doesn’t like to waste time and likes results FAST. That’s why she created a proven curriculum for each program that teaches your child the tools & techniques so they NEVER have to rely on anyone OR anything for their happiness, including you (the parent) and Connie (as their coach). Connie’s goal is to teach your child how to be “happily” self-sufficient. Her programs are made using a specific end date in mind. Unlike MOST therapies, Connie’s coaching model is based on referrals by happy clients (Start Loving LIFERS) who have completed her programs. NOT by keeping her clients dependant on her or her coaching sessions. That is the opposite of her “Start Loving Life” philosophy of discovering your “true personal freedom” 🙂

Does Connie work with her clients after they complete the program?

Many of Connie’s clients choose to work with her for continued support & mentorship in her continued SUCCESS Program, but it is NOT necessary. Many clients also move-on in their NEW happy, positive lifestyle and check in from time to time with a success they’ve encountered as a result of being in the program. Connie LOVES hearing about her client’s successes even long after they have completed her program. Connie sincerely LOVES all the people she has worked with and considers them TRUE LIFERS and not just clients.

What would be the 1st step in my child working with Connie?

Connie believes in results. That is why she does NOT recommend her program to every child. In order to achieve results, the child must be open to improvement and learning a new way of “positive” thinking. Not every child is ready and that’s okay. It is for that reason, all new clients schedule a “Discovery” Session first. From that session, the parent and child becomes more familiar with Connie’s approach and whether it’s a good fit for both Connie and the client.

Can my child do the "Discovery" Session without signing up for a program?

YES! The Discovery Session is great as Connie teaches your child (in that one session) how they’ve been holding themselves back AND how to start feeling better right away! Sometimes, that is the only thing a child may need at the moment or may be considered an alternative if the parent/child cannot commit to the Start Loving Life Program at this time. The programs are geared towards those individuals who can commit and want to make long-lasting changes that greatly improve and influence their self-esteem, attitude, and potential in life.

How is it possible my child can feel better in such a short time when I have been in therapy for years?

This isn’t therapy. Connie is not a therapist, doctor, or licensed mental health professional. Connie is someone who years ago after much research and her own personal frustrations discovered simple, easy self-help tools & techniques that helped her change her life from negative to positive FAST. It isn’t hard and it’s quite simple if you know what to do. Once Connie realized how easy it could be, she wanted to teach others so they didn’t have to struggle like she did.

Many people reach out to Connie for all different reasons; stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, negative thinking, problematic love life, work life, school stuff, friend issues, you name it. But what most people don’t realize, which is at the heart of all the Start Loving Life teachings, is everything you feel & attract in life is ALWAYS based on your self-image of you. EVERYTHING. People are very self-critical of themselves. Unfortunately, we are taught that growing up. Connie’s programs are created in such a way where she teaches your child how to incorporate a new positive way of thinking about themselves first and foremost to replace their negative, self-critical way of thinking. It takes only 30 days to break a habit, and that’s basically the only problem most people and kids have. Hence, why Connie’s clients see improvement in as little as 30 days, provided they follow the program of course 🙂

How do I know what program is right for my child?

Whether your child would be a candidate for Connie’s program will be a result of their “Discovery” Session. Connie LOVES teaching kids how to LOVE life but she also does not love wasting your time or your money :-). Her goal is to get your child the best results possible based on her teachings and their commitment to the program. If your child is not an ideal candidate, Connie may offer other outside resources other than her programs.

If your child is a candidate and you’re interested in moving forward, all clients begin with the Start Loving Life® 30 Day Program. Sometimes that is all a child needs. At the completion of the 30 Day Program, your child may extend and continue onto the 60 Day Program and/or 90 Day program, if he 0r she chooses to and Connie sees it fit.

Do you take insurance?

Connie does not. She is NOT a licensed mental health professional. She is a certified health & life coach that created her own lifestyle philosophy “Start Loving Life” in 2007 after her own frustrations with life.

Her teachings are not from a textbook as Connie does not believe in traditional psychology. She believes in a more holistic approach as that is what has worked for her. Her desire to take the holistic route was after her own experience trying therapy when she was younger. It was not helpful to her and instead, she left the session feeling as if her childhood (which was pretty good) was to blame for her existing problems. This was not a solution for her at all. She left the session feeling worse. She wanted to feel empowered and better, not place blame or look to her past. That’s what inspired her to start her own journey of self-discovery. She quickly learned it what not only possible to LOVE LIFE, but that anyone could do it, and your past has no bearing on your future. Since then, she’s been hooked!

Everything she teaches is based on her own personal lifestyle of being happy, positive, and loving life. She walks her talk because she knows it to be true and that’s what she believes.

Any type of coaching is an investment in yourself. But as Connie always preaches, an investment in yourself is the only investment that ever guarantees a return :-). How can anyone really argue with that?

Why YOUR CHILD should
Start Loving Life®.

“Every time I talk to someone who doesn’t see their true value or their worthiness, it reminds me of the old me. On the inside, my heart breaks. I secretly wish for them to know how uniquely amazing they truly are.

Why? Because I know that is the answer.

That’s why I created Start Loving Life®. To teach people what they don’t learn in school. How to love life BUT most of all how to love themselves.”
