Your CoHost is Confidence Coach, Ruth Hegarty

 

Ruth Hegarty started out as an excruciatingly shy child and young adult. She was so shy and unsure of herself that her parents encouraged her to speak up at home by giving her a nickel every time she could say something at one end of the apartment that they could hear at the other. She would sit at one end of the long hallway with her father and repeat "Hi, Mom" several times until her mother could hear her at the other end of the hallway. As you can imagine, this level of shyness made it next to impossible for Ruth to socialize at school or prepare for a career. Luckily, as Ruth grew up and recognized just how much her fear and lack of "voice" held her back she determined to change her situation. Over many years of trial and error Ruth was able to discover the secrets to becoming confident, finding her voice and living the life she always knew was out there for her. That is why today Ruth is such an inspirational speaker with a deep passion for empowering others to experience the transformative power of finding their own voice. Ruth uses her pesonal experiences and insights, her training and experience as a transformative educator and Law of Attraction coach and the inspiration she gets from seeing amazing client results to help people find their voice and feel great about being and sharing who they are.


Ruth is an experienced and passionate educator. Originally trained as a high school teacher, Ruth has been teaching college undergraduate and graduate level courses in the fields of communication, education and business since 2000. Ruth is a curriculum expert, creating her own popular college courses and consulting with other schools and companies on creating meaningful and inspiring curriculum. She is an experienced classroom and distance learning educator having trained extensively in both disciplines.

 

 

 

Ruth received her BA in history summa cum laude from SuffolkUniversity in 1998 and her MS in education in 2000, again from SuffolkUniversity and again graduating with honors. She completed her initial personal and business coach training in 2003 when she graduated from Coach Inc.’s Coach Training Program and earned an additional certification as a Law of Attraction certified coach in 2008. She has been a certified educator since 2000 and a certified teleclass leader since 2005.

She is often described by program participants as an entertaining, empowering and fearless presence with unbounded enthusiasm and insightful practical advice. Ruth is a master at creating learning environments that establish trust, safety, respect and well-being and accelerate transformational learning experiences for participants. Her message inspires audiences to reevaluate their thought and speech patterns and how they approach change and learning to discover their own unique power and ability to create positive outcomes.
