Faydra, what’s an interestingly weird fact about yourself?
I can probably taste any recipe and tell you how to make it.
How did your journey as an entrepreneur all begin?
I worked for 20 years with the government and then found an entrepreneurial way to do my job.
I’m a recent empty nester, traveled all around America and going to Greece is on my bucket list.
I love history and understanding people.
Philadelphia is high on my list of favorite destinations in the world because it’s where America started.
Also I love the pacific north west such as Oregon and Washington area because it’s gorgeous.
I live in California.
How did you become America’s Crisis Coach?
My husband was accused of committing crimes before we ever met.
It became a dark time.
This scandal was all over the nation.
Went to trial and he was found guilty sentenced to 43 years in prison which is his entire life because he was 62 years old.
Nobody I knew was going through anything like this and I felt alone.
I started rejecting everything at first and lived that way for a year but knew there had to be a better choice.
I even thought about suicide as an option.
Then I went to a wonderful group called “Beach-Preneurs” who get together in a beautiful beach house in Pensacola, Florida.
The woman told me, “You are America’s Crisis Coach.”
It took 6 months to gather courage to bounce back and embrace my story.
I realized I was looking for help and couldn’t find it but I could be helpful for other people to find me so I changed my brand.
What’s the process look like for overcoming a major crisis with your clients?
To help them with the 5 stages of grief of loss.
1. Denial and isolation.
2. Anger (Mad at God & the world). This needs to happen and is self righteous.
3. Bargaining (please God I’ll do anything if this don’t happen).
4. Depression (Is it ever gonna get better, what’s it all for)?
5. Expectancy (I am the totality of everything bad and good happening and am whole despite of it).
Other things we work on is “How do me master this disaster?” and what do we want to come through to the other side?
Then shine light on the future.
What’s the fastest way to move through a Crisis it with your coaching?
Coaching solves problems, I’ve been trained as a therapist and have 20 years dealing with psychology.
Limited clients get full access, 3 or 6 months coaching clients.
What’s the vision of Faydra Koenig look like for the future?
Personally this is a very interesting time, I’ve lived in the same town in Cali, now I’m 46 and moving to the Sacramento area, establishing a home base there but personally going on a quest.
In regards to business, it’s all about my podcast “Coming Out Of The Fire.”
My goal is to cruise America in a RV to travel America and gather interviews.
