MEET YOUR COACH NAILA
Hey, Sis. Thanks for checking out Spirit Syrup – Lifestyle Coaching for Women.
My name is Naila Chauncey Hughes. I’m a thrill seeking, roti clapping, stiletto wearing, natural hair rocking, 30-something always ready for another stamp on her passport.
I became a lifestyle coach and public speaker after a once in a lifetime experience that blasted through all the baloney I thought a black girl from a single parent family couldn’t be.
I had just finished undergrad. Family and friends told me I “should” just get a job, that I “should” get married and have a few kids but deep down I knew there was more to life. I knew I deserved to pursue my dreams to travel, live overseas and have my Oprah moment by helping women live better lives.
Rather than supporting my dream, family and some friends encouraged me to take the traditional path. They told me I should just “settle down” and “be realistic” but I knew all I needed was a clear focus and a strategy to help my master plan pay off. And, guess what? It did. I was offered an opportunity to design the Girl Entrepreneurship Program, a United Nations sponsored start-up in Uganda to help women live empowered, exceptional lives and make money to support their families all at the same time.
The best part was I fulfilling my dreams while serving others. I even got paid to travel while living overseas!
The whole experience taught me something I was too afraid to admit before: Any woman – whether she’s Black, White, Latina or Asian – can live an exceptional life if she chooses to.
Five years, a life coach certification, a hubby and 15 passport stamps later, I started Spirit Syrup. Now, I help other women live exceptional lives by leting go of limiting beliefs that get in way of experiencing the fullness of life and going for what we game-changers want most – FREEDOM TO LIVE THE WAY WE WANT TO!
I share unconventional tips to help women design their ideal lives with lifestyle coaching and coach them on how to become game changers in their self-care, relationships and communities.
It’s a pretty sweet gig. Some people call me “lucky”. Do you know what I tell them?
“With a little coaching, you could be ‘lucky’ too.”
