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

Hi Tabby, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
After working in “Corporate America” for much of my life, I knew a change was needed. I wanted to have more flexibility in when, where, and how I worked. But more importantly, I wanted to create a job that got me out of bed in the morning and fulfilled me. Working for other people, we are often moving someone else’s vision forward and not necessarily our own. We often have to spend a substantial amount of time doing things that don’t really light us up all that much. Having my own business allows me to create a work environment that brings joy and enrichment to my life, aligns with my life purpose, and in which I can help others move toward a better future for themselves, too.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I provide spiritual coaching and guidance as well as dating and relationship coaching. I do this through two businesses – Embrace Her and Wingwoman 2.0. My passion is to help people create a more joyful life experience. My clients tend to value things like love, strong relationships and deep connections, personal freedom, self-awareness, and personal growth.

I blend my formal education, professional and personal studies, life experience and my intuition to support my clients. My programs are not one-size-fits-all; there is no rigid curriculum that I expect to work for everyone. We are all different and what works for one client doesn’t always work for the next. So we start by getting really clear on what the client is seeking and I serve as their guide, helping them navigate or create the best path to move them toward what they want. I rely heavily on my intuition to help my clients get to the heart of the matter and provide suggestions on different tools, practices, modalities, and more that can help them along the way. My clients appreciate the support and accountability that our collaboration brings them.

Getting here has been a long journey full of detours. As I myself have continued to learn, heal, and evolve, I have allowed my business to evolve with me. There have been many challenges along the way; the biggest ones being what’s going on within myself. I’ve had to do a lot of work to clear my own inner obstacles – fear, limiting beliefs, self-doubt, and more. Doing that deep inner personal work has been one of the most important things for my businesses.

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?
I live in Colorado Springs and two of my favorite ways to spend free time are hiking and listening to live music. I recommend Red Rock Open Space or North Cheyenne Canyon for hiking in Colorado Springs. In terms of live music, I have enjoyed the short drive to Tailgate Tavern in Parker – they have a fun mix of bands and when weather cooperates, offer music both indoors and out.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
It’s hard to narrow my shoutout down to a single person or book or experience. I believe that all of our experiences and relationships add value and contribute to our learning and growth. I have intentionally surrounded myself with high-energy, dedicated women who are both inspired and inspiring. I have read a lot of books that were very important along my path and helped me examine some deeper inner beliefs and limitations that were holding me back from being my best self.
