So why did I decide to go into coaching?
I saw a need. Wonderful, talented women who were awesome at their craft, but were struggling with self-doubt and digital marketing know how. They were stuck and stayed stuck which meant that the people who they were meant to serve weren't having the opportunity to connect with them.
This broke my heart. And because I’ve struggled with procrastination due to perfectionism and crippling insecurity in the past I knew I had to step up and help.
You see, I started my first corporation when I was 19. And for 20 years I had the same business partner. It was awesome! We were like the dynamic duo taking on the world.
And when we sold our company back in 2011, I ventured out on my own. I’m not going to lie, it was super intimidating.
I was used to relying on my other half and was motivated by her fiery extroverted personality. Having to muster the courage to do it all on my own took some time AND a lot of self-talk!
While I was building my coaching business, I took on a business management position where I cut my teeth on digital marketing.
I acquired the skills to help clients grow their email lists, execute 6-figure launches, establish successful membership sites, and build online learning management systems.
This gave me the confidence and know-how to coach full-time combining my brick and mortar experience with the hands-on tech stuff.
And now, what’s more important than ever is cultivating a conscious tribe of women who desire to lead, grow, network, and contribute to a better world.
I started the Women Developing Brilliance podcast to share stories of creative women solopreneurs lighting up the way with their service and offerings. I know listening to these real stories talking honestly about the challenges and the successes gives hope no matter where you are on the path; be it a budding start-up or a thriving empire.
