The San Francisco-based life and resiliency coach sat down to discuss his life, his career, and his professional philosophy.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / December 22, 2021 / It is with great enthusiasm that James Novello, professional life and resiliency coach, and former first responder, announces that he is the subject of a new interview. The interview, which was conducted by a freelance journalist, is scheduled to be published by an online periodical that deals with business, technology, and thought leadership.
Early on in the piece, James is asked what he loves most about being a life and resiliency coach. "I love to see positive changes in people. Having overcome some significant obstacles myself, I know how to get people to where they need to be," he replies, before comparing his newfound profession to his previous job as a firefighter and paramedic. "Identifying someone's problems and helping them find success is as rewarding for me as pulling someone out of a fire. As a first responder, you don't always know the outcome for someone who has experienced a medical emergency that you've helped. You get them stable and you get them to safety, then you are on to the next call. As a life coach, you get to help someone from start to finish, you see the improvements in their life, and you get them through the whole process. It is very fulfilling."
Further along in the interview, James Novello outlines the advice he would give to anyone considering pursuing a career as a life and resilience coach. "I would suggest getting to work right now. Don't put off your plans, don't procrastinate-if there is something you feel strongly about, something important you want to achieve, work toward it starting today," he asserts with passion, channeling his role as a life coach. "So many people are unhappy with what they are doing, but also feel they are trapped and can't do anything else. I helped a lot of people in the fire department who were unhappy with where they were at - in some cases it only required a lifestyle change but others thrived by finding a new career. It is an incredibly difficult thing to change your entire life, and most people don't have the motivation to do it on their own, but with determination and hard work, it is possible for anyone. Advice I can relate to the reader of this interview is that my circumstances made the decision to change my career logical and therefore easy, but you don't have to wait for some catalyst before making a change and reaching for new goals. Learn what it will take to make your dreams happen and then just start doing it."
Anyone curious to read the full text of the interview is encouraged to keep watch for its publication in the coming days.
About James Novello:
James Novello is a life and resiliency coach hailing from San Francisco, California. While in college, he began his career as a volunteer for the local fire department, eventually being hired full time for SFFD after graduating and expanding his professional purview to include emergency medical response as a paramedic. During the course of his career, he earned many additional certifications to help with critical incident response. Unfortunately, after many on-the-job injuries, James Novello had to confront the reality that he couldn't maintain the demands of being a professional full-time first responder, and he ultimately had to leave the career he thought he would have for the rest of his working life. While recovering from injuries on modified duty, he was assigned to SFFD's peer support unit within the fire department. It was that initial exposure to this work that eventually gave him the inspiration to pursue a career as life and resiliency coach.
