Closing Her Psychology Practice To Take a Job: Dr. Neecie Moore


Check out all episodes on the My Favorite Mistake main page.

My guest for Episode #56 is Dr. Neecie Moore, owner of LCI Life Coaching Institute.

For over 25 years Dr. Neecie has been inspiring, motivating and transforming audiences to align and connect with their destiny. Her vast experience as a successful business leader and an endless pursuit of advanced education, including a PhD in psychology, has her being heralded and celebrated by industry leaders like Tony Robbins, Dr. Patricia Love, and Dr. Harville Hendrix as a life coaching industry leader.

“YOU deserve extraordinary, in your relationships, your finances, your endeavors. You deserve extraordinary peace of mind, peace in the valley, and an extraordinary piece of the action. YOU deserve extraordinary!”

Dr. Neecie Moore

Today, we talk about Dr. Neecie's “favorite mistake” of shutting down a practice she had built to take a job. Why did she immediately think that was a mistake? Why did people tell her it was a mistake to start a practice in the first place? What mistakes did she make with that first practice? What lessons did she learn and apply to later starting her second practice? We talk about that and:

  • The mistake of thinking she could help everybody
  • The importance of not just training, but also certifying, life coaches
  • The neuro psychology of change
  • Working with Tony Robbins
  • Her workshop: “Uncover your Extraordinary Power of Purpose”

"The mistakes abounded. Building my first practice, I was so determined and desperate, I would joke with people I'll see you for $5, which meant I had to continue my waitressing career much longer than I should have."

"I tell people, this sounds so dramatic, but apart from God, [Tony Robbins] had the greatest impact on my life, mostly because he got in here and straightened out some real messes."
