Itâ€™s something Iâ€™ve always wanted to doâ€¦Iâ€™m just waiting for the right time. Â When the kids are grown, Iâ€™m going toâ€¦ Â I love that! Â Wish Iâ€™d done it. Â I donâ€™t know why I canâ€™t, but I canâ€™t. Â Iâ€™m stuck. Â Wow, sheâ€™s lucky. Â Iâ€™m tired of sitting on my butt â€“ I want to make this thing happen!
Sound familiar? Do you have an idea thatâ€™s burning a hole in your heart, something you know will be life-changing? Is there a novel that wants to be written, a business that wants to be launched, a gig you know would be great? Are you ready to commit to that meditation program, restructure your eating habits, learn to dance? It doesnâ€™t matter if your idea is lofty or humble, if itâ€™s an internal goal or one that will impact the world around you in a big way.
The point is, you have a Big Idea and youâ€™re not taking action to make it real.
I get this. Itâ€™s part of a natural process, even though itâ€™s an uncomfortable part of that process. So Iâ€™m suggesting you get serious about ending the stagnation. Step up your game, by putting your heart and your head behind your Big Idea.
burst into bloom group coaching is a six week program designed to take you out of your head and into inspired action. Inspired action comes from the intersection of who you are and what you want; itâ€™s the result of knowing yourself deeply, and aligning actions with your heart.
In this group weâ€™ll get crystal clear on the components of your idea; the why and the what. We will then get extremely curious about YOU; you’ll see how youâ€™ve been sabotaging your own efforts, and you’ll embrace the unique combination of values, strengths and passion that positions you to take action.
Weâ€™ll discover the alchemy of you and your idea, and it will enable you to move forward with ease and confidence.
Because of who I am, the group will be equal parts deep-dive conversation around topics that might make you squirm, exercises that provoke instant insight, belly laughter, and quiet time for processing. I create a safe container for the work youâ€™ll be doing, which is sacred.
Our time together will be enlightening, healing and productive.
Iâ€™m offering this to you because of the incredible power of group work. There’s a synergy in groups that allows us to go much deeper with the material than we would on our own; the others support, challenge and inspire us to go beyond our growth edges to whatâ€™s next. I want this for you.
This group is designed to help you bloom. Weâ€™ll meet weekly on a conference call for 90 minutes, over the course of 6 weeks. There will be ten women who are willing to go deep personally, in service to doing what they say they want to do.
Ten women committed to introspection, planning and executing. In addition to the weekly coaching calls, there will be a private Facebook page for members to share wins and challenges, brainstorm strategies, offer insight, and hold themselves accountable. The calls will include interactive learning, one-on-one coaching, brainstorming and support.
AND … at the end of the six-week program, each woman will schedule a private coaching call with me to be held within one month of completion.Â In this 60-minute session you’ll receive targeted attention on what remains challenging and anchor the learning that has transpired for you.
The group was incredibly helpful to me; not long after the sessions ended, I accomplished my goal of completing a writing project. Amy did an amazing job harnessing the power of group work and creating a space where all of us felt safe and included. I had never participated in a telephone group before, and I was surprised to experience such support and connection.

The group is not a business mentorship program. Â I wonâ€™t be offering technical advice, or acting as a business consultant. Â It also isnâ€™t the place for you to discover your Big Vision â€“ the women in the group already know what their dream idea is, and are getting support on realizing it.
This is the group for you if you are a creative soul, ready to unfurl into a bigger version of yourself by bringing your dream alive. Your more conventional label might be entrepreneur, executive, consultant, freelancer, or artist. You have clear ideas about what you want to put in action, yet are stuck or going slower than youâ€™d like.
This group will be a great resource for those of you launching businesses, reconfiguring careers, and invigorating spiritual or creative pursuits. Itâ€™ll be amazing for those of you who are mid-stream in a project, and running out of steam.
As a coach I am bold â€“ I call it like I see it. At the same time I gently and fiercely hold space for whatever you bring; I consider our sessions sacred and honor what rawness might be present just below the surface. You will be invited to dive deep. Iâ€™ll bring my spirituality, my intellectual curiosity, and my coaching toolkit, and the group will coalesce around common themes.Â This depth is what makes Burst Into Bloom different from other programs.
-Â Linda Ford, life coach
Youâ€™ll walk away with clarity and a renewed commitment to your project or plan, along with clear next steps to get you where you want to go. Â Youâ€™ll wake up feeling energized about your pursuit, rather than frustrated, guilty or defeated. Â Youâ€™ll bring a new sense of purpose to your seat at the computer, the meditation cushion, the easel, or the boardroom table. Â And the support structures you put in place during the group will help you maintain this once the 6 weeks are over.
Having worked with Amy in the past, I was excited when the invitation to participate in Burst into Bloom was extended. I had been “stuck” in place with regard to launching my business. It was like my car was all packed up ready to go and gassed up, but for some reason, I was avoiding putting the car in drive.Each session chipped away at my blockage and I now feel I am on my way and have gained new tools and awareness for the future obstacles which will no doubt arise. Amy is an amazing group facilitator and the other participantsâ€™ vulnerability and sharing enriched my learning experience immeasurably. I highly recommend this course to anyone feeling blocked from pursuing a project or dream.

Amy, thank you so much for your time, effort, and gentle but effective encouragement and guidance. With your help I was able to distill my fairly vague and wholly unformed Big IdeaÂ into aÂ better, tighter versionÂ that feels so me,Â so very right for where I am now and where I want to go.Â And all with such ease, yeeha!
Apart from thoroughly enjoying each week’s session, the probing homework, and especially your visualizations that transported me to another plane,Â one of my most satisfying moments was realizing that I’d fulfilled the wish I made at the start of the course, with ease, just from the space in-between that you encouraged us to pay attention to.Â Even better isÂ watching my Big Idea continue to unfurl, petal by petal.
