My coaching philosophy:

Believing in getting to the root of all issues and treating the whole person, which is mind, body, and spirit, I am well equipped to provide support since I am a certified professional hypnotist (mind), life coach (spirit) and health coach (body). I offer my expertise as a lifestyle designer to help you create a life of endless possibilities for confidence and fulfillment.

A little about me:

Growing up a farmer’s daughter, I came back to my roots when I purchased a beautiful hobby farm in southern Wisconsin with my  husband John. Being responsible for the care, feeding, and shoveling of poop for ducks, chickens, a high-energy yellow Labrador retriever, a goof-ball English Bulldog, and a spunky Teddy Bear dog keeps me grounded as well as full of vibrancy with must-have humor. My down-to-earth style, judgment-free vibe, and warmth is represented in all that I do, including the writing of my books, classes, and talks and the healing and helpful work that I perform.

My values and personal definition for each


I will not say it or do it if I don’t believe in it or currently do it myself. Example: when posting inspirational posts that I create, if I am currently not doing or living that thought, I will not share it. Granted, no one would really know the difference, but I would and that is all that matters. To me, that is full integrity that runs deep!


When you truly can be thankful for all the little, every day things in life, and express that gratitude, God and the Universe gives you more to be thankful for. Since 2011 I have documented "5 things I’m thankful for today” on my personal Facebook page and it has changed my life! Whatever you think about, you bring about!


I believe that everything is an opportunity rather than an obstacle. For this reason, I am committed to find a resolution. In that commitment, I am diligent with my research, connections, and conversations to find an answer. In my client sessions, I share my resources so that you can continue to learn, grow, and evolve long after our session is complete.


I believe we find what we are looking for. When we don't live in fear but rather adopt a practice of "wonder thinking" our life becomes amazing. "I wonder what it would feel like to receive that award?" "I wonder what it will feel like to help hundreds of people a year?" Curiosity opens doors, opportunities, and an abundant life!


To me, leadership is a quality that allows an individual to stand out from the crowd. A leader models the way with an inspired vision and an loving, kind heart that enables others to act. Strong leaders are effective communicators, efficient in all that they do, and authentic in style and delivery.


I feel it is important to be generous with our time, talents, and money whenever possible. Without people being generous and helpful, the world could not function. I not only help my clients every day, but I also volunteer my time for a local non-profit and I host a monthly free online Meetup group to help people build their self-esteem and self-confidence.

A Little More About Me

I enjoy giving back with my time, talent and resources. Some of the ways that I do that include:

Local networking and leadership

What people have to say about Connie Jo Holmes with BU2BFULL Hypnosis and Coaching:

True Expert

Connie is a true expert in coaching to reach your full potential! She is professional, knowledgeable, and her warm spirit fills the room. I have had two workshops with her coaching my company team and we have all walked away with "real" tools to use for our life journey. She is amazing!

Carrie R


Connie has a way about her, that everyone can relate to her and what she's teaching. Her desire to pursue this dream of hers is very evident in the workshop. I wish I knew her many years ago. I'd be a much smarter and happier person. But, it's never too late!

Arnetta M


I appreciate Connie's personalized approach to coaching and the variety of skills and techniques that she draws on to help her clients achieve their goals. My sessions were tailor-made for the real time goals and challenges that came up during our sessions, and I walked away with tools and a mindset that will last a lifetime.

Sandra P


Absolutely a 5-star experience with BU2BFULL Hypnosis and coaching. I recently attended one of her retreats and afterwards felt refreshed, clear in my focus, and inspired to move forward. If you are looking for clarity in life, check out her Facebook page.

Carole P


Connie is just amazing. She really cares about people and has the very best listening skills. When you talk to Connie she gives 100% all the time. I have learned so much and I am thankful that she came into my life when I really needed direction and coaching.

Meg F

SO Worth It!

I absolutely loved Connie's seminar that I attended today. Not only did I walk out of there feeling inspired, but I also walked away with a while new attitude on life! I would give 10 stars if I could! If you're considering doing a retreat, don't hesitate one bit! SO worth it!

Kelsey M

Lasting Effect

Connie was amazing to work with. Her positivity and belief in her work shines through. Each session I had with Connie made me more determined to achieve my goals. She helped me to address my negative view of myself. She used my own experience and words to give me a different perspective on life. If I am feeling down I remember her words and it gets me out of my funk. She introduced me to techniques I'd never heard of before. The sessions I've had with Connie has had a lasting effect. I would highly recommend Connie's services.

Alice D

Incredibly Thorough

I have worked with several coaches over the years, but I never received the results that I received from working with Connie. She is incredibly thorough, detail oriented, and goes above and beyond to help you. She is kind, professional, and listens carefully to learn what results you are wanting to achieve. Loved working with Connie, and I plan on working with her again in the future.

Karen H

Valuable Strategies

I have utilized hypnotherapy in the past and found it to be beneficial. However, completing the coaching session prior to the hypnotherapy proved to be invaluable. Connie was able to help me to better understand my challenges and give me insights that I hadn't had before. This helped to make the hypnotherapy session more personal and pertinent to my goals. She also provided very valuable strategies in addition to the hypnosis to help me achieve my goals. I am very impressed with Connie's methods, insights, and abilities and couldn't be happier with the end results. I highly recommend Connie for whatever life coaching goals you may have. You will be very happy with the results.
