I would like to use the motif of a nautical compass rose, perhaps in a stylized form. The method of integral life coaching I employ is based on four "quadrants" representing mind, body, relationships and environment. The "inner compass" I refer to is also a representation of quadrants of north, south, east and west. It would be great if somehow the quadrants "pop" from the compass rose.
I am a sailor and enjoy using sailing imagery and metaphors in my coaching. My website will likely use a turquoise, watery color scheme and I may use photos of me sailing as a salute to those who follow their passions, whatever they may be. Water is also good imagery for "flow," which is a state that people experience when they are deeply engaged in what they are doing.
There are other "inner compass" websites that I found in my google search. I want to distinguish myself by making this reference more than a passing line. Everyone has an inner compass and if they become aware of where it points them, they can take advantage of valuable guidance and balance.
I am a low-key, rather bookish person and I was attracted to the training offered by New Ventures West because it has a strong foundation in philosophy. I would like to project a very professional, not sensational, image as a coach.
