At first, Deb was skeptical about working with Marcey. “I didn’t need someone telling me to drink more water. I have an accounting background. That’s not how it works for us,” said Deb. Deb thought she was as healthy and productive as possible given her situation. She assumed Marcey didn’t understand the nature of her “serious work,” which is cyclical, and she blamed her company for failing to staff appropriately during the busy times.
Having to work with Marcey felt like a punishment to Deb, “during our first session, I doubt I uncrossed my arms.” However, Marcey was thorough from the beginning. She asked Deb to fill out a questionnaire which Marcey reviewed before that first session, and she came prepared with recommendations right out of the gate. Deb signed a contract, and it was evident to her that Marcey meant business.
Quickly after that first session, Deb began to notice a difference. At first, she followed Marcey’s recommendations simply because they seemed easy enough. But then she began to look forward to her check-in calls to see what Marcey would recommend for any challenges that came up during the week.
