Do you ever have those days when you’re not as productive as you intended even though you’ve created a to do list for the day? Well, you’re not alone. Many others just like you have good intentions of completing every task on that list, but somehow everything and everybody else’s needs get accomplished by you and at the end of the day you feel emotionally drained, mentally challenged, and self-defeated because you don’t have the creative or physical energy to accomplish what you need to do for you. If you see yourself anywhere in this scenario, then you should consider investing in a life coach. A life coach is a person who helps others maintain balance, identify blocks, challenges, and discover opportunities for their personal lives as well as for their business. Additionally, many life coaches are very accomplished in their own lives and are good at asking key questions to unlocking other’s potential. This is what Crystalyn Roberts, owner and operator of Star Unlimited Coaching Solutions does successfully for her clientele. Crystalyn is a certified life coach, business strategist, and registered dental consultant.

One may ask, “what can a life coach do for me that I can’t do for myself?” How about hold you accountable to your short and long-term goals and even hold you accountable to your dreams. Crystalyn is passionate about teaching other professional women how to balance and live their best lives on purpose and that includes learning how to balance yourself, first. Ideally this also means optimizing her clients’ overall wellness by reducing stress and stressors, redeeming lost time, balancing emotions, and maintaining physical health. The main reason life coaching works is because you’re hiring someone with greater experience than you in a certain area. A personal life coach can quickly identify patterns that may not be clear to you then they can help you devise and implement solutions. When this works well, it’s a very high-leverage relationship. Having a life coach is one of the fastest ways of solving challenging problems in your life and remaining focused.

Crystalyn doesn’t merely coach the professional woman and mom on living a balanced life, but she is living the life she tells others they can have. She shares, “In my personal and professional development side I do focus on women because I understand the balance of having a family. I have five sons, I’m married, I’ve had a 20 year career in dentistry and 14 of those years I was a practicing dental hygienist … and I also have my own business, so I can definitely relate to a woman trying to balance everything.” Admittingly, Crystalyn says that she fell victim to trying to do it all for everybody else and found herself omitting her own wellness and dreams. She says, “You have a dream. You have a vision. You know what you’re called to do but at the same time everything around you seems to be opposed to you stepping out and taking care of it. So, I really had to focus on finding a balance in my own life and focusing more on time management. I had to encourage myself to put me first.” Crystalyn is adamant in reminding her clients that you must take care of you, first, to be proactive for others. “That’s one of the things I keep in the forefront of my client’s mind. I create a time management plan that works well for them and I hold them to it. I encourage women to put themselves on the list because a lot of times we’re so busy caring for everybody else that we don’t make the list ourselves,” she shares.

It’s important for Crystalyn that her clients recognize that it’s okay to put themselves first even though they have many others pulling on them for support. She also encourages them to get a sufficient amount of rest. Crystalyn explains, “I’m huge on rest because I know for myself if I don’t get enough of it I’m not as creative or productive and I know I won’t be able to take care of the people I love if I’m not well rested. I make sure I get eight hours of sleep every night. I get up at 4:15 a.m. every morning and work out for an hour and fifteen minutes. I try to eat clean because I know that’s just something important for my body and again I have a coaching business which I also consider a life style business. So even though my passion is to serve others my first ministry is to serve my own house hold. I want to make sure that they are well taken care of and to do that I have to take care of me. It’s hard for people to get used to taking care of themselves. I would be going against what I coach my clients to do if it wasn’t something I practiced myself.”

Star Unlimited Coaching Solutions does more than just offer life coaching. This company also offers a strategic business component. Crystalyn believes that one of the reasons her business is successful is because she offers her clients a complementary one-on-one strategy session where she listens to their goals, discovers their passions, and suggests creative ways of reconceptualizing a wheel that isn’t necessarily broken. She shares, “I always provide a complementary strategy session and spend one-on-one time with clients, so I can find out exactly what they want from the business strategy side. Even if they are establishing a new business or desiring a fresh perspective with an existing business I create a strategy for the entire team.” She reminds us that Less Brown, a motivational speaker, once said, “It’s kind of hard to take a picture when you’re in the frame.”

To Crystalyn that simply means that it takes somebody from the outside to see the potential for where the business is trying to go. “Sometimes people become very complacent in what they do daily, so I come in and give that business a fresh perspective. I especially enjoy team building. I have an extensive history in dentistry and I love it. I love to see patients well taken care of from the time they enter the practice until they leave. For that to happen team work must take place. I have worked in the dental industry for over 20 years and I understand that the dentists don’t really want to be bothered with the daily operations of the practice. That’s why they hire office managers. So, I come in and focus on the owners and find out how they are interpreting the environment and often it’s different than what’s actually going on. I have individual consultations with every team member because that’s how I can assess if everyone is working in their strengths as opposed to working in an area because there was a need and now the practice isn’t being productive internally. The whole point of having a team is getting everybody in the right position so that everyone is more productive together and on top of that the people that are coming to the practice can feel the cohesiveness. They feel the team effort and that just makes for a better business.”

It is Crystalyn clear that Star Unlimited Coaching Solutions takes life coaching to the next level. Crystalyn shares, “I honestly believe my business differentiates itself from the rest because Star Unlimited Coaching Solutions is in the human potential industry. A lot of business coaches are not coming from a life coaching standpoint they’re coming from the business perspective. They are more focused on what the numbers look like and all of that is great of course but my specific goal is for the client’s business to be productive from the human side. I’m looking at the individuals. I’m looking at implementing the plan or vision the owner has in his or her head and bringing that to life. I coach the owner and the staff so that everyone coming to the table understands why they are operating in those specific areas. Yes, I want to see the business be as productive as possible but first someone must come in and break it down so that when it’s built back up it’s balanced with purpose which means that everyone is working cohesively as a team in an environment void of conflict and stress. When that happens and all of it comes together, you’ll see greater results in your numbers across the board. This is what my business is designed to do and that’s why we’re different.”

Crystalyn believes that if you live a purposeful and balanced life “in the end you win.” She also believes that everyone is created on purpose and with a purpose and that life is to short not to walk in the gift that the Lord has given to you.
Crystalyn earned a Bachelor of Science degree from UNC-Chapel Hill in dental hygiene and she is a registered hygienist. She has certifications in life coaching, high management coaching, and business coaching.
