Are You in the Midst of a Difficult Life Transition? Life Coach Trish Johnson Can Help

Nobody ever said getting through life’s most difficult transitions and accomplishing your goals would be easy, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. During my years as a life coach, I’ve worked with plenty of women and men who thought their current circumstances were insurmountable. However, after processing their feelings and fears, many of them have gone on to lead happy, fulfilling lives. My name is Trish Johnson, and for the past three years, I’ve had the privilege of guiding people through some of the most difficult transitions of their lives. Before I became a life coach, I worked as an instructional coach for teachers and educators. As I would talk through their problems with them, I discovered that women in any profession might face most of those same issues. I still work with educators, but I’ve also helped people in countless other positions and workplaces. I also recently started a podcast called “Illuminated Life.” You can find the episodes and descriptions on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. I welcome any opportunity to speak on managing difficult life transitions, and I am looking forward to the opportunity to talk about how to manage in the wake of a loved one’s death. Knowing what to do and where to go afterward can seem impossible, but I promise you it’s not. No one should have to endure tragedy alone, and it’s my hope

that through this seminar, you’ll gain a better understanding of how to overcome these difficult and painful circumstances.

My seminar will be on Jan. 23 at 6 p.m at our office 7700 East Arapahoe Road, Suite 100, Centennial, CO 80112. Light refreshments and beverages will be provided, and seating is limited. If you’re curious about how you can manage challenging times of transition, give us a call at 303-741-2400 and reserve your seat today. There is going to be a series of these events in the near future, so please watch for dates, times, and locations.

What is the age that someone should get a living will and power of attorney?


• • • •

2 tsp kosher salt

• • • •

2 large russet potatoes, scrubbed

a. 16 b. 18 c. 21 d. 25

1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp black pepper

1 large onion, peeled and cut into quarters

2 large eggs

Safflower or vegetable oil, for frying

1/2 cup all-purpose flour


1. Using either a food processor with a coarse grating disc or the coarse side of a box grater, grate potatoes and onion. (If using a food processor, halve or quarter potatoes.) Once grated, wrap in a clean dish towel or cheesecloth to wring out as much moisture as possible. 2. Transfer to a mixing bowl and mix in eggs, flour, salt, baking powder, and pepper. 3. Heat a heavy-bottomed pan containing 1/4-inch of oil over medium-high heat. Use a heaping tablespoon to drop batter into the hot pan, working in batches. Use a spatula or spoon to form them into discs. Fry about 5 minutes per side, until deeply browned. 4. Transfer to a paper towel-lined wire rack to drain, and serve alongside applesauce and sour cream.
