Vanessa Wright is a writer and a lover of words, haiku poetry, books (all the books), and journals. As a Beautiful You Life Coach, she works with mothers in midlife to embrace transformation and transition by supporting them to take authentic action towards their goals and dreams. Whether they’re looking to reignite their creative side, feel more energized and confident, or navigate a new season of life, midlife mothers don’t have to go it alone.
She is a published author and was recently included in a collection of women’s essays and stories called This I Know Is True published by the kind press. Her chapter, Intuitively Grow Your Fearless Flow, details her journey to finding FLOW and how other moms can do the same.
She also works as the homeschool liaison and special project coordinator for a popular children’s growth mindset company. She’s a contributing writer to The Homeschool Mom blog where she shares her family’s journey and encourages others with her insight, tips, and reflections.
Vanessa Wright is a long-time homeschooling mom to three teens. She loves hot tea, taking walks, and eating high-quality dark chocolate every single day.
Are you a mother in midlife looking to create the life you can’t wait to wake up to? If you’re ready to uncover your passions and purpose while mindfully mothering in midlife, you’re in the right place, friend.Vanessa Wright, Life Coach
