"Opening Doors with Mental Fitness – Turning Challenges into Opportunity"

For most of us, running a business can be stressful.  The voices in our head questioning what we’re doing and how we’re doing it can cause stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, regret, shame, guilt, and unhappiness.  If you’ve experienced some or all of these negative emotions while starting or operating your EAL business, you know how energy-sucking these emotions can be.  But it doesn’t have to be that way.

By staying mentally fit you can handle life and business challenges without mental stress or negative emotions. You can perform better, feel happier, and open doors to more opportunities.  Your relationships grow stronger, your riding becomes more focused, and you can build a new set of tools to use with your clients, as well.

In this session, Janis Cooper will provide an overview of how to build your mental fitness by squelching your Saboteurs (negative voices/emotions).  You’ll learn about who the primary Saboteurs are, how they show up, then learn techniques for building your Sage (positive emotions).  You’ll also be offered the opportunity to take a personal assessment to understand the Saboteurs that challenge you the most, why, and how to negate them through mental fitness.


After 25 years in the High-Tech industry, serving in management and Executive roles for Fortune 500 companies, Janis walked away from that life to pursue a fulfilling career through an EAL business. During the past 9 years she has pursued a certification through Coaching with Horses and with E3A, where she has also served on the E3A Board of Directors for 5 years.  Janis is a certified professional life coach, and also holds a certification in Appreciative Inquiry.  Additionally, she is certified in DISC assessments, and is currently working on her Positive Intelligence Coaching certification.  Her business, EQnimity, is based in Meriden, NH.  Janis also delivers Leadership and Staff Development for Best Friends Animal Society. She focuses on bringing personal insights to individuals and teams that support behavior change that lead to enhanced relationships and careers.
