Cathy Goddard Headshot

Hello I’m Cathy Goddard and am so happy you’re here. I believe in living a life that lights you up and my unwavering mission is to champion you to cut through the clutter and reach your dreams…. whatever they may be. What does that mean? Keep reading.

Who I Work With

So, you want a great life. Happiness and satisfaction mean a lot in your world. You might be a bit stuck personally or professionally and have a desire to get unstuck. And, you want to enjoy your work. You may need to explore career or business strategy that gets you results. Above all, you are open ~ love ideas ~ want tools and resources that fit your unique stage of life. You may prefer a do-it-yourself approach to work through things at your own pace or perhaps a trusting coach/mentor/partner that will be honest, compassionate, understanding but will also challenge you and hold you accountable. You may want to explore your world through journaling. That is my ideal client because I know I can make a difference.

What I Do

Since 2008, Lighthouse has offered a unique to blend of coaching and mentoring services to those ready to chart their next course. I am proud of having guided leaders and learners through my coaching practice and the award-winning mentor program I lovingly built for so many years. Though I closed the chapter on that mentorship program in 2023, I want to continue sharing leading-edge resources for those that want to create a plan for the future or break through barriers holding them back. Using Lighthouse’s powerful paradigm of knowledge sharing, networking, connections, accountability, and insightful resources, I help you create the business and life of your dreams.

Who I Am

After starting, building and selling a successful employment agency in Whistler, British Columbia (1995 – 2008), I turned my focus to creating Lighthouse Visionary Strategies. I know firsthand the highs and lows, the immense joys and bitter challenges in owning and growing a business. Certainly, I know how frustrating, how lonely and isolating, it can be to work on and in your business day after day. I also know how uplifting, motivating and inspiring it can be to find solutions. THAT is why I created Lighthouse.

Without a doubt, I bring unsurpassed enthusiasm, sound knowledge, and tangible, collaborative solutions to my clients. Want to know more? Here is my full bio.

My Promise

My commitment is to be there for you through thick and thin. Whether you decide to take a do-it-yourself approach with Lighthouse’s online courses or simply to read my insightful blog, I am always available with a reassuring word of encouragement….or maybe a gentle nudge in the direction you really need to go. 

I’m on your side and anyone who knows me will tell you—I’ll go above and beyond to help you succeed.

So, I encourage you to take a look around this site, or get in touch for a “get to know you” conversation to see how Lighthouse can serve you.

Let’s Shine.

The Lighthouse Concept

So, why a lighthouse? Let me say that a lighthouse is the perfect symbol to chart your journey. The Lighthouse Concept is a cornerstone of the programs, tools and resources that I offer my clients. Working together, we create a solid foundation and build from there to identify your beacon (your unique qualities and voice), map out your path (the steps and intentions) to reach your vision (igniting your inner light). Along the way, we will determine what knowledge and tools you need to get you there and break down the barriers that keep you from rising up
