We had the good fortune of connecting with Lynnette Kile and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lynnette, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
In my 20’s my motto was, “more money now.” My top priorities would be on only the activities that make me money. My motto in my 30’s turned into, “pause and love.” I had a sales career for all of my 20’s and most of my 30’s and it was ingrained in me to produce, focus, capitalize on opportunity, and never be complacent.

Around 35 it hit me that money, work, and growing my sales career are not the most important things in life. It’s about connecting with other humans and nature, love, inner peace, and abundance (in all those areas, but also in happiness).

A big contributor to this thought change was my yoga practice but simultaneously having kids. My heart shifted.

I now put the work I give this world around the middle of my priorities. So that I don’t lose my mind trying to work and balance my family life, I give myself A LOT of grace. A few mantras I use are, “I will do what I can do, and that’s all I can do,” “I am at peace with the process of life.” These help me to remember that I don’t have to do it ALL in my business. It will all come in time.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My specialty is coaching overwhelmed moms of young children. I help mamas gain control of their days so they can feel proud, accomplished, free from mom guilt, and deeper connection with those they love. I LOVE helping others have those “a-ha” moments, I live for it. It lights me up to see others transform their lives from frazzled, overwhelmed, and beating themselves up every day to feeling fulfilled and intentional.

What has really blossomed lately is the opportunity for me to share with bigger groups through two different workshops. I run a Vision Board Workshop for teams, offices, and friend groups, as well as a more mom-focused workshop, 5 Mom Habits to Reduce the Chaos and Increase the Peace. Lots of “a-ha!” moments in these! In-person is available all across DFW and virtual is limitless.

The only reason I am where I am at in my business is because of my coaches. I have had a coach non-stop. From the launching of my business to now, coaches have helped me find balance, uplevel, and keep me sane. I’m so thankful the coaching world is growing. It now really comes down to finding the right coach for you and what you need.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My first go-to would be Magnolia Street and the Cultural District in Fort Worth. The Kimbell is a world-renowned museum right in my backyard! When we visited Paris a few years back and in speaking with locals they referenced the Kimbell like we reference The Louvre. I had no idea! So that’s a must. And Ellerbe and Nonna Tata on Magnolia are by far some of our favorite restaurants. Follow that with ice cream from Melt and it’s the best day ever!!

For all the rest of the days we would have to hit up Clay Pigeon (the mussels and wine list are SO good!). Joe T’s, shopping in Sundance Square with a stop for white wine on a patio, a show at Casa Mañana, brunch at The Tavern, a quick bite at Pearl Snap Kolaches, and a bike ride on the Trinity. I think that would round them out pretty good.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
A big shout out to my girlfriends for recognizing my intuitive heart and natural ability to coach. Your encouragement to research life coaching, study, and bust through walls to make it happen has brought me here. And now you are so incredibly supportive, especially when others try to dim my light. Thank you Jules, Char, Kenda, Tabitha, and Anna. Love you so much!!
