Fate has to do with the circumstances you are born into. Destiny has to do with your calling. Let destiny be your guide.
What’s the SWEET SPOT, you ask? It’s a self-defined place of success. It’s what makes you happy. I’d like to help you get there. Want to know more?
Lady Gaga says she has an “illness” for writing songs. Whether you like Lady Gaga or not, I think we can all agree that she is pretty good at writing songs, and she’s found her Sweet Spot doing work she loves. I believe we are here for a reason, and that we can discover that reason by asking the right questions. My goal is to help you see the bigger possibilities and grow toward your own self-defined Sweet Spot.
I’ve counseled/coached over 600 people in the past four years in my role as Director of Career Development at Marlboro College and in my Sweet Spot Style private practice. Here’s what a few of them have to say….
If you haven’t come across the gorgeous Desha Peacock, then you have to check her out. I have just started working with her and am blown away by her knowledge, style, and support. I was drawn to work with her because of her style, graphics and the way her branding comes through everything she does and I would like to bring that into my own business and life. Love her so much!
–Sarah Leather, Founder of Flourish
I contacted Desha to gain CLARITY around my work + lifestyle, to feel EMPOWRED around my gifts and CONFIDENT in how I express these gifts. Finally, I wanted support to help me take ACTION toward these goals.
Within one month of working with Desha, I was offered my ideal job in my chosen field in a way that perfectly matches my intention! I am now working virtually from home for a global education organization, using my passions, skills, and talents in a way that feels meaningful and exciting!
Desha’s holistic approach has helped me to re-imagine, have faith, and take action in creating a lifestyle that mirrors my true self. Beyond the genuine love and care she brings, Desha instilled in me the outlook that, indeed, I can create a lifestyle that honors my health limits, and still uses my gifts/talents in creative work that aligns with my values.
Through diving deep into my hopes, as well as my fears, she provided honesty, transparency, and great encouragement.
I would do Desha a disservice if I did not mention that wholeness, creativity, and faith are integral to her mission of helping her clients live from their core selves. In identifying areas where darkness, past-experience, and pressures to conform to outer expectations or a false self, she gently and fearlessly asks the hard questions, seeking to find and treat what hinders us from the pursuit of creating a life that is rooted in the true self, the whole self; one imbued with integrity, creativity, passion, and spiritual energy.
I can’t thank her enough for guiding me into my sweet spot! Desha is a rare gem & worth your investment.
–Liz Weisenburger, Friendship World Tours
I was in the very beginning of my journey when I decided to contact Desha, but once we started to work together, I was able to focus my intention. I became clear about my path and really motivated to develop my business and brand. Even though there’s always so much to do, Desha reminded me to take it one step at a time knowing that as I put time and energy into my desires, they will grow and manifest. I’ve gained more confidence and clarity by working with Desha for sure. She has an amazing way with words and can break down overwhelming tasks into a manageable to- do- list.
–Carrie Montgomery, Founder of Passionate Rebel Lifestyle
While my life is full of wise and wonderful people I found myself at a loss of where to turn when I needed to workshop a major life and career change. I’ve known Desha for years and decided to arrange a time to chat. Our conversation was a turning point in my process both practically and emotionally. Desha guided our discussion with extremely focused questions and she was clearly listening to me and strategizing with me at the same time. She provided solid input across many aspects of my specific situation. She gave me clear and easy-to-follow advice and stayed in contact with me. She became a partner during my season of change and her positive encouragement and empathetic ear has made a huge difference.
–Claire Weston, Former Global Digital Director/Current Bliss Finder
Even though I’ve worked with Desha for a short time, I’ve had some life changing revelations. I am learning to embrace my own style rather than trying to be someone I’m not. Desha helped me identify my strengths. I am a caring, helpful person which is an important quality in my work and personal life. I am working to secure my dream job and I know Desha will help me get there. Her career development background has been a real asset in our work. I highly recommend Desha as a Lifestylist. She is smart, intuitive, works hard and delivers above and beyond. I love that she provides support between our scheduled sessions to provide extra encouragement and keep me on track. I am happy to be working with her!
–Julie C., Nurse Practitioner
Because of a series of difficult incidents, I felt frustrated and stuck in my life, and I didn’t know how to get back to my Sweet Spot. Then I met Desha. She reminded me how to manifest my deepest desires using easy, simple tools. I wake up feeling excited, optimistic and confident. My life has gone from black and white to Technicolor. Thank you, Desha!
–Suzanne Kingsbury, Author, Editor and Founder of Wild Words
This chick is burning Vermont up. Trust me. This is my coach, and with her sassy class I’ve experienced rebirth! She might not be doing a one-handed cartwheel, but she has brought much loving inspiration to many. She’s the bomb, and a kick-ass Fire Starter Facilitator. I shoulda made a video pumping my girl. Desha Peacock rocks!
–Bessie Jones, Founder Sow Well Tots
Desha was an inspiration to me and three girlfriends when we met during a recent seminar in San Miguel de Allende. In a reassuring, positive and uplifting style, she guided the four of us through some tough questions and intense emotions to get us to focus on what really matters. After meeting with Desha and feeling empowered, we have continued with our own “intention-setting” breakfasts to keep the momentum going and help each other fulfill our stated goals. Without Desha’s gentle push and probing questions we would never have found the time or the inspiration for this self-exploration. Thanks!
–Ann Hillers, Travel Writer + Retreat Coordinator
Desha Peacock is a gifted leader facilitating real and positive change in the lives of women. Her expert guidance has enabled me to make a successful career shift in the space of just two months, and my manifesting power is completely dialed whenever I am in one of her classes, allowing for big financial miracles. And I’m not the only one! Desha has mobilized an amazing group of women here in Vermont, and her classes count as rare and precious time. Choose her! Desha is the real deal.
–Cathryn Lykes, Writer
Desha is extremely skilled and knowledgeable in every aspect of career development and is an expert at helping the idealist realize their dream. With kindness and gentle but influential urgings, she coached me through the entire process of applying for the job I most desired. After working with Desha, the company called within a day of submitting my resume! Desha then practiced the interview with me. They offered me the job, and then she coached me on negotiations around the offer. Since she is working with your past, present and future, she is extremely considerate with regard to where you have been, what this application process feels like to you now, and where you hope to go in your career. Desha pays attention to your roots that settle you in security and strength, and to your branches that are reaching toward the sky.
— Susie Belleci, International Educator
I loved the creative group Desha facilitated. I loved having homework, sharing it with each other and processing it, even though it was intense to fit it in. That was invaluable. Having reflectors was incredible. We had such trust and concern for each other, and that was, and is, like nothing else. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
–Natalie Blake, Artist & Founder of Fulcrum Arts
I cracked open some fear and resentment I had built up about a career I love, allowing me to focus on how I felt when I was in my groove so I could tap back into that joy. I also liked the support of a group of women looking at similar issues, and the fact that we had a backbone of material to work from. We could then challenge each other on those topics, but from our own spirit. Desha, I appreciate your guidance and participation.
–Laura Frank, Live Entertainment Technology Specialist
When I started working with Desha, I was feeling pretty lost; but hearing how she has worked to create the life she wants inspired me. She encouraged me to keep a journal and keep track of all the things that give me energy. Her voice has been a small seed, sprouting and giving me the courage to pursue diverse interests rather than a traditional discipline. This semester, I worked with Desha on writing an application for a summer research grant. I felt stressed out and unsure of where to begin. Desha had me tape-record myself responding to the application questions. The process helped me feel less paralyzed and clarified my thinking. I submitted the grant, and found out a few weeks later that I had been awarded the full amount.
–Kara Hamilton, Marlboro Student
Thank you so much for our wonderful session! I came home full of inspiration and resolve, and even shared (some of it) with my husband. You are so talented at what you do– you are a natural!
–Diana Whitney, Core Flow Yoga
The world WOULD be a much happier place if everyone were living in their Sweet Spot. Desha is inspirational, and so sweet to boot!
You are such an inspiration, Desha. Love your show and your message–I’m always looking forward to what you will do next!
–Shari Zarin, owner of Altiplano
Desha helped to transform my company’s Instagram presence – in both style and purpose. She was able to grow my following from ### to #### over the course of # months… record breaking!!! Becuase of her strategic direction and efforts I’m now receiving client inquires via Instagram, which is super excited and works as another amazingly effective way to advertise my interior design, styling and event agency. Thanks Desha for helping hone my (Insta) #sweetspot
–Cara Paige – Founder & Creative Director of Cover Paige Creative
Sue Henry is a textile artist who had her first 10k month after just starting her business six months ago.
“Could I have done this without you? Maybe. But I doubt it. Working with you has helped me stay on track, meet my goals and really understand that my dreams and what I want to create is possible. You vibe with me on that. Nobody else sees that. Even those closest to me say they don’t see how this can work. You look at my dreams and give me that support that I don’t get elsewhere in my life. Now that I’ve worked with you, I don’t want to be without you.”
Hiring Desha was one the best investments I’ve made for myself. Honestly, even better than college! It’s because she helped me get clear, focused and straight to the point in my aspirations. Desha listened to my goals, struggles, fears and was a gentle guidance during my journey of making my online shop a reality. I looked forward to our meetings and her detailed notes she’d send to recap my intentions and keep me accountable in the process. She is also very connected and opened doors for me that otherwise would have been more difficult for me to find. Desha really has a gift of connecting, and encouraging women to dream big and follow their hearts. I’m very thankful I found her!
“I hired Desha again because she never fails to motivate and inspire me. Desha possesses a unique blend of work ethic, playfulness, integrity and confidence that is utterly contagious!
I’ve tried other life coaches before but no one has had the powerful effect on me that Desha has. She has helped me clarify my goals (in both my yoga biz and my writing career) and then take steps to reach those clear goals. She’s also one of the most genuine, fun, and encouraging people I’ve ever met.”
–Diana Whitney, Yoga Instructor and award-winning poet
Desha supports me in prioritizing my goals, both personal and professional, so that I have a clear direction and don’t get sidetracked. I am doing things that I never thought I’d do, from running a few times a week to building my brand and my online presence. I’m making incredible progress in my business and my personal life, and all the while maintaining happiness and balance! I love working with her!
Breakthrough: I was afraid of Instagram. I was afraid to “be seen”. I’m private and used to sort of hide behind the screen so to speak. Then @deshapeacockand I had a coaching call and she helped me define my style and begin to explore instagram like never before. My soul has soared and who knew how much I would love connecting with people from all over the world . From camel rides in Morocco to pictures of children I will never meet, I am touched and moved by all my new friends. Maybe I’m not so private after all! Maybe I enjoy being a part of the world and my affirmation, “it’s ok to be seen”‘has actually manifested. I didn’t become a spiritual life coach for nothing… Spiritual laws work!!! Xoxo to all my new friends, thank you for your secret support ! World…it’s nice to meet you!!! #spiritual-growth p.s how gorgeous is this tree!!??
I hired Desha again because she listens to me and takes action. Truly, she makes ME TAKE THE ACTION but she provides loving direction and encouragement. I know she cares about the outcome. Thank you Desha.
