Entrepreneurship

While I’m a Strategist & Coach, I am also an entrepreneur and creative!  I know what it’s like to take a leap and follow your passion into business.  I too have ridden the entrepreneurial roller coaster ride, with dips and unexpected turns.

In knowing that I’d some day be an entrepreneur, I embraced every job opportunity that came my way.  My approach was always the same: learn, improve, teach, explore and advance.  I learned what I needed, improved upon the process, taught others in my team, explored other opportunities for growth, and then went for it!  Approaching life in strategic ways, allowed me to acquire the skillsets essential for entrepreneurs, administrative, accounting, customer service, finance, human resources, marketing, sales, project management, technology, vendor management and much more.

Now as an entrepreneur, I have taken my life skills to develop signature programs for creatives and passionate entrepreneurs like you, that will ensure you have a solid business foundation before you scale.

On a more personal note, I know the multitude of emotions that come with entrepreneurship and being a creative.  There is the:

  • Analysis Paralysis (overthinking)
  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of success
  • Impatience in getting to where you feel you should be
  • Perfectionism (procrastination)
  • Self-Sabotage (comparison, unhealthy habits, stinking thinking, and more)
  • Struggle with Imposter Syndrome (self doubt)

Transparency

While starting, scaling, or exiting a business takes strategy, it’s also important for you to realize you have options.  You have options with respect to whom you do business with, the services and/or products you put into the market, how much you will charge and what you will invest in.  Knowing this, I am very transparent with my clients.

In speaking with me, you will quickly learn:

  • I ask difficult questions to get to the root cause of your business challenges: the sooner we identify the obstacles, the sooner we can explore solutions.
  • I am very selective in who I work with.  I do not work with everyone who is interested in working with me.  I will explain why and can teach you how to be selective as well.
  • I am confident and comfortable in my pricing as I’ve done my due diligence, understand the industry standards, and the value-added that I bring to my clients.  This is why pricing is listed on my site.  I also want you to know that as a client, you are getting the same quality of service as everyone else, no one person pays more or less for the same service package.
  • I am not your typical coach!  I truly invest time and effort in the process with respect to accountability and execution.  Each coaching session, you have your to-dos and I will have mine as your partner in this journey.
  • I truly believe that sharing is caring therefore share tools, resources, and special offers with clients.
  • While I’m nurturing in my approach, I don’t accept excuses.  YOU must do the work!
  • I am here for you and YOUR business success.
