Coaching Gets You Moving Forward with Intention and Purpose

Coaching is a progressive and effective process for high achieving, insightful, driven individuals looking to continuously grow and improve themselves.

Reading a book and having knowledge of how to improve oneself is one thing. Putting that information into intentional and purposeful action is quite another.

Working with a coach can efficiently and effectively get you results you haven’t been able to achieve on your own.

The return on your investment is profound! Why do you think Fortune 500 companies, professional athletes, politicians and high-level executives all utilizes coaches?

I’ve used coaching to completely change my life by creating a more integrated personal and professional life that brings me both satisfaction and happiness. I no longer feel like I am just surviving but thriving.

Here’s How I Can Help…

Hi, I’m Char…

My name is Charlene Zielin. I am the CEO and the founder of Char Marie Coaching and creator of the Breaking Burnout Blueprint and Nurse-2-Entrepreneur Formula.

I am a nurse with more than 30 years of clinical, coaching and leadership experience. I have worked and managed various specialties in nursing including emergency medicine, urgent care, OB/GYN, home health, and nursing homes. I have consulted for one of the top rated healthcare organizations in the nation. The bulk of my career has been spent in leadership, management and project management, building new healthcare programs from the ground up. 

Smart professionals are burning out and leaving their jobs at a staggering speed. They are overwhelmed, stressed and stuck. They are underappreciated and overworked. They feel trapped deciding if staying in a career they poured years of blood, sweat and tears into is worth the sacrifice for having a more balanced, fulfilling, joyful life.

My mission is to help people heal from burnout, rekindle their passion and purpose for their profession and find the freedom, balance and happiness that has been missing.

Client Testimonials

Before working with Char, my life was in total chaos both professionally and personally. I was normally a very high functioning, successful leader in my field, and now I was feeling completely defeated, lacked confidence in my abilities, and felt extreme guilt and shame for the state I was living in.

My overall experience with Char was nothing short of fabulous! We had an immediate connection and she provided me with a support system and sounding board I really don’t have.

Char showed me how to create awareness around my stressors and taught me how to deal with challenges head on. She showed me how avoiding and procrastinating was a negative coping mechanism. I learned new ways to process my stress and tools to overcome my negative coping habits.

When I start to feel overwhelmed and fall back on my old habits of avoidance, I remember what I learned and use my new tools. I will never go back to that situation again.

The money and time spent on Char’s program was transformational and worth every penny!


Program Manager

I wasn’t where I wanted to be in my business or in life. I had gone through other coaching programs, but still felt stuck. I had so many excuses as to why I wasn’t achieving the success I thought I deserved. My self-motivation had declined, and I needed a kick in the butt to get moving forward.

Char called out my excuses, helped me learn what was going on in my brain and what was holding me back from doing the work and the why behind it all. She listened, helped show me what was important to me, and reminded me of my ‘why’ during hard times.

Char gave me tough love. There were some days I did not want to hear what she was saying, but I knew she was right.

When I started working with Char, I was working towards an advancement in my business and earning an all-inclusive trip to Mexico. With Char’s consistent support, reminder of my why and out of the box thinking, I achieved my goal the week we finished the program!



For a long time I felt stuck. I was in a high-paying but completely unsatisfying job. Every Sunday was a bad day and my family bore the brunt of my irritation.

My unhappiness with my job strained my relationship with my spouse and my children. Thankfully, I was able to sit down with Char and figure out how to move forward.

Char was able to help me identify what I wanted to do, the goals I wanted to attain, overcome my fear of change, and create a roadmap of how to achieve success – which included talking to my spouse and explaining to her what I wanted.

Surprise! I went back to school and quickly found a job in the profession I always wanted to be in. My job is fantastic, my relationship with my family has never been better, and I have never been happier. I would not be where I am today without Char.
