Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO I KNOW IF COACHING IS RIGHT FOR ME?
If you are ready to design your dream business or are ready to turn your hobby into a business, or you’ve hit a wall in what you are currently building, coaching will help you look at what you are working toward with a fresh eye and come up with proven strategies, new ideas, and reinvigorate your motivation and inspiration to take the world by storm! If you want to work on your grit and moxie, coaching is exactly what you need!
DO I NEED A COACH IF I’M NOT SURE ABOUT WHAT I NEED YET?
Only if you want to by-pass the learning curve and a bunch of beginner mistakes. I believe mistakes and failures are the short cut to success, but I don’t believe in wasting time. I’ll help you figure out where you are going and what you want so you can design your dream and start taking action. Then you will be able to evaluate your work to stay focused, on-track, and effective.
I’VE TRIED COACHING IN THE PAST BUT I DIDN’T SEE RESULTS. HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT?
To quote Liam Neeson in “Taken” I have a special set of skills. I am a quick-thinking problem-solver who specializes in seeing your potential, giving you gut-honest truth and feedback, and simplifying ideas in a way that makes it click for you. You’ll leave our session confident about what you need to do next, how to prioritize it, and how to hold yourself accountable.
WHAT WILL WE COVER IN COACHING?
We will absolutely cover systems and strategies, don’t worry. But we’ll also work on getting you clear on what you are doing and for whom, getting you unstuck, helping you to stop feeling all over the place, creating a step-by-step action plan, figuring out how to monetize and prioritize, and building your confidence to tap into your inner badass boss.
I’M STUCK, BUT I DON’T KNOW WHY. CAN YOU HELP?
In my experience, most women go to a coach with an idea of what they need to fix, but on closer inspection, there is a deeper issue going on. I will help you kick over a few rocks to find the underlying reason you feel stuck or unsure of what to do next. Then I’ll help you create a strategy to overcome or move past it successfully and with confidence.
WHAT IF COACHING DOESN’T WORK FOR ME?
The only way it won’t work is if you don’t do the work. Entrepreneurship is challenging and needs to be paid attention to like a toddler. So, if you are more interested in making excuses instead of progress, it won’t work for you. But, if you are ready to get out of your own way and aren’t afraid of a little blood, sweat, and tears, then it won’t be long before you are sharing your own success story with those coming up after you.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW TO MAKE MY COACHING EXPERIENCE A SUCCESS?
First, you gotta ask all of the questions. Especially the ones you are afraid to ask. Next, you have to trust the process, but be flexible. Plan to try it the way your coach instructed you, but don’t be afraid to go rogue and make it your own. Then, you have to believe that you can and will figure this out.
HOW DO I JUSTIFY THE EXPENSE OF COACHING?
I get it. Coaching seems indulgent, but it isn’t. Coaching will actually save you money in the long run because you won’t be spending it on tools and resources that don’t work. You’ll develop a strong foundation that will allow you to begin making money faster, in which case, the coaching will essentially pay for itself. So if you would rather make money and not waste it, coaching justifies itself.
I AM EMBARRASSED BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD KNOW THIS STUFF ALREADY.
You want the truth? Those who admit what they don’t know are going to move faster and be more successful than people who aren’t willing to be beginners. Knowing what you don’t know, or being open-minded about learning a new way to think about something, is the first step to getting out of your own way. Don’t be embarrassed, be proud!
ARE YOU GOING TO SEND ME ENDLESS, PRESSURE-FILLED EMAILS THAT WILL MAKE ME UNSUBSCRIBE IN THE FUTURE?
I have had to unsubscribe from following brilliant people because they won’t leave my inbox alone, too. In fact, it’s one of my big pet peeves. That being said, I think it’s difficult when you are working with a large group of people to find the perfect balance between letting you know about an opportunity and trusting that you read the first email. :) So here’s the deal, I will promise to try not to spam you if you will promise to shoot me an email if I am. Help me help you before you hit the unsubscribe button. How does that sound?
I HAVE AN ESTABLISHED BUSINESS THAT I AM READY TO TAKE TO THE NEXT LEVEL. WOULD THIS COACHING STILL BE HELPFUL?
First of all, that’s awesome! Congrats on your business savvy. And yes, this coaching would still be valuable. Our sessions would be focused on strategy, strengthening your brand position, rolling out new products or services, whatever you want. I can help you turn your next big idea into your next success story. Plus, we can talk a lot of shop and have tons of fun while we work!
