We had the good fortune of connecting with Misty Rauscher and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Misty, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?
When I was in college I knew I wanted to help people. When I first started, it was helping with tangible needs- home modifications for the disabled, a home health aid for daily needs of the elderly, or connecting homeless to resources in their community including dental work. But as I transitioned out of that and into the birth world, I assisted with the outward goal of getting the birth people were desiring, I saw so much more that people needed tending to within their daily lives. The general feeling of overwhelm, chaos, being misunderstood, or not doing what they actually wanted to be doing. I wanted to tackle THOSE problems, and so I became a life coach.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have built a professional life of helping people, and my early years of working with the disabled and elderly was the perfect starting place. I honed in on my skill to really understand what families were wanting for their loved ones and get to work bringing tangible resources together to make their lives as comfortable as possible. Once I began having children, I was drawn to childbirth, and the unique experience each woman could have, but wanted to make sure she had a voice, and became a doula. I had been steeped in that field for 11 years when my heart realized it was really drawn to helping people make their lives better in all aspects. To cut away excuses and ways they live without thinking and begin solving problems and cutting out the noise in their life. I became a life coach. I get most excited about getting messages and texts that say they have been changed, that they don’t have the same hateful reaction to their family member as they have in the past, that they have more confidence in their business, or motherhood. Knowing that people have the power to change their lives, and I get to be a part of that is such an honor.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My friend and I would head to the Guenalla Pass and take a short hike to watch the colors change. We would stop to eat burgers and Flurries at Dairy King in Empire and then head to Park Meadows Mall to window shop at Lululemon and Peloton.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to shout out all the life coaches that have gone before me- in doing the belief work for me, until I believed in myself.
