About

Welcome

Cathy Goddard

Here at Lighthouse, I specialize in one-on-one coaching and group mentorship for women (and some men too) who want to craft a life for their own unique needs. My inspirational and proven process is a hybrid of coaching and mentoring methods – designed to give you everything you need to achieve your business goals and lifestyle dreams.

Although I use specially designed tools and traditional coaching methods, I don’t do ‘cookie cutter’. Instead, I personalize this experience to guide you to discover and sail your own unique path. As an experienced entrepreneur, I’m also happy to act as your mentor, giving sound advice to help you on your journey. If a group environment is what you’re looking for, I’ve got you covered with Lighthouse’s award-winning mentor program.

And a lighthouse is the perfect symbol to chart that journey. 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.

You’re Here Because:

  • You want to live your best life and are ready to craft your unique plan with a road map, solid advice and transformational accountability along the way.
  • You want to stop comparing and feeling pressured that you should be more, do more, want more – you want to work smarter, not harder and have more control and contentment.
  • You’re ready to cast aside the misconception of balance and embrace a blend of life and business.
  • You’re maybe not quite sure what you want but it’s time to break through the self-doubt and fear of failure and get rid of negative patterns and habits that don’t serve you well.

Sound like you?

Give me 60 days and I’ll light the way with tools, resources, knowledge and encouragement.

A Message From Cathy

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

Who I Work With

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. You want to enjoy your work. You may need to talk career or business strategy that gets you results. You are open ~ love ideas ~ seek direction ~ want tools and resources that fit your unique stage of life. You want a trusting coach/mentor/partner that will be honest, compassionate, understanding but will also challenge you and hold you accountable. That is my ideal client because I know I can make a difference.

What I Do

Lighthouse offers a unique ​blend of coaching and mentoring services to those ready and committed to chart their next course. With depth of hard-won business experience, I inspire leaders and learners who struggle with
creating a plan for the future and have options to work one-on-one or within a group environment if you’d rather.
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. I know how frustrating, how lonely and isolating, it can be to work on and in your business day after day. And I know how uplifting, motivating and inspiring it can be to have a champion – a mentor, coach, or a group of colleagues – on your side. THAT is why I created Lighthouse Visionary Strategies.

Whether through coaching, facilitating team sessions or nurturing Lighthouse’s innovative mentor program, I bring
unsurpassed enthusiasm, sound knowledge and tangible, collaborative solutions to my clients.

My Promise

My commitment is to be there for you through thick and thin. To share my business and life lessons, to serve as a cheerleader or a shoulder depending on what is needed. Whether you share good news or bad, I’ll tell you what you need to hear. It might be a reassuring word of encouragement… a probing question… or perhaps a gentle nudge (or well-positioned shove!) 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.

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.
