How Taylor Found IPSP (and Started on a Path to her DREAM Career)
When I spoke with IPSP graduate Taylor Coelho, one of the things that struck me most was her gentle nature –– and the quiet determination underneath.
Taylor’s amazing story started when she was a wife, a mom of two beautiful daughters, and a career woman …but in the wrong career.
Taylor Was Great at Her Job, But…
Taylor had already accomplished quite a bit by the time she decided it was time to take the leap and change careers.
Taylor told me she already had a job. But she wanted more. She wanted a career –– and she wanted to be able to spend time with her family.
“I knew that I did not want to work for a corporation forever,” Taylor recalled. “My true passion was sleep training.”
Taylor had already been working at a credit union, and she told me that she took that experience into her search for a new career.
“I gained so many skills that have helped my business succeed,” Taylor explained. Today she’s glad for that time in her life. “I truly believe everything happens for a reason, and if you listen to your heart, trust your gut and believe in yourself –– anything is possible!
“When I sleep trained my last baby, I realized this is what I
NEEDED to be doing.” ~ Taylor
An early experience with hiring a sleep trainer for her little girls at six and four months of age, respectively, had created “a huge passion for sleep training my children and how it helped our family,” Taylor revealed.
In fact, “I can remember when my dad came to visit and said, ‘I can’t believe you just put (Taylor’s daughter) down in her crib and walk away and that’s it!’”
The experience was an inspiration.
“I wanted to help other moms get sleep and get back to themselves,” Taylor told me.
“Now this is my full-time job.” ~ Taylor
Taylor realized she also wanted the freedom and flexibility that being a Certified Sleep Consultant could offer.
“I wanted to have the freedom to create my own schedule and not miss any more moments of my beautiful children growing up,” ‘she said.
So she enrolled in, and graduated from, the IPSP Sleep Consultant Certification program. And she set a goal for herself.
“I was heading back to my 9-to-5 shortly after completing this course. My goal was to be able to afford to do sleep training as my full-time job in one year.”
Taylor couldn’t quite believe at first that she would be able to start right out with a career in sleep training.
But amazing even herself, Taylor beat her original goal, founding the business Babies Need Sleep in beautiful Okanagan, British Columbia, Canada.
“It’s January 2023 now,” she said, “and this is my full time job!”
“I’m truly my own boss.” ~ Taylor
So, what does Taylor love the most about her rewarding career as a Certified Sleep Consultant?
“I now have my own business and can create my own schedule. I can drop my children off at 4
school/daycare and not worry about being late for work. I can attend dance recitals without asking for time off…I’m truly my own boss.”
And just as she helps other families get closer by achieving better sleep and greater harmony, her own household is happier than ever.
“I’m home when my children need me,” she revealed, and “the difference that has made in my relationship with my children has been huge. I’m also a happier person because I am finally following my passion.”
“Believe in yourself!
Take the leap of faith.
You’ll be surprised what you can do.”
