to Vicario. “They don’t necessarily see it, but I see it.
They’re working really hard. I’m just holding the space
for them to do that.” The more motivated the client and
the harder they work, the more likely they are to effect
lasting change. “If we don’t produce sustainable change,”
Moore says, “we haven’t added value. The drivers of
sustainability include really knowing why it matters to
you, and then building confidence. You end up outgrow-
ing your old lifestyle. When you look back a year later,
you almost can’t remember what it was like.”
For Kristin Swartzlander, the changes she insti-
tuted with Vicario’s help are still going strong. She
overhauled her diet and identified her migraine triggers.
Her energy levels were boosted by drinking more
water, consuming enough healthy fats, and making
exercise a priority. In addition, Vicario helped her strat-
egize how best to eat on the road — sometimes literally.
“When you work at a race track,” she says, “every-
thing gets dirty.” As useful as these practical changes
were to her health and happiness, simply receiving
permission to prioritize self-care was perhaps the most
valuable takeaway. “I had a lot of guilt around that. But
if you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t take care of
other people or your business.” p
