What's your business, and who are your customers?
My business is Breakpoint Coaching, LLC, and I certify, train and mentor Faith-based Life Coaches through 1:1 services and eCourses.
Tell us about yourself
My name is Dr. Patrice Carter, and I am residing in North Carolina. Dalton is the love of my life, and I am a "bonus" mother to our son Miles and daughters Destiny and Desire. I am a proud Military Spouse and US Army Reserve Veteran.
I am the CEO of Breakpoint Coaching, LLC, where I certify and train Faith-based Life Coaches through eCourse-based products and services, and I mentor Life Coaches who want to establish their own Life Coaching schools and eCourses.
I am also a highly sought-after Speaker and Author of SUPERb Woman: From Bad Girl to God's Girl and 65 Ways to be Successful in Business. I have 35+ years of combined experience in Entrepreneurship, Military, and Healthcare and hold these degrees: Ph.D. in Organization and Management, MBA and MSA in Healthcare Management, and BS in Management.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My greatest accomplishment is serving others and watching them succeed, advance, and flourish in the area(s) of their hopes and dreams.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things that come with being a business owner is navigating the rocky terrain of being a pathfinder (in areas I haven't traversed before) and overcoming huge learning curves. However, I am up for the challenge.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Go slow- take the time to research your desired field.
- Ask the experts- connect with someone who is a trusted, successful advisor in your field and invite them to lunch or buy them a virtual coffee to have a sit-down and ask your questions.
- Believe in yourself and never stop progressing. The work you consistently show up to do daily WILL REAP success!
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
I believe that we can do any and everything that we have been created to do! Life is short, and therefore, we should just get about the business of living it and crushing our goals and dreams!
If there is an Entrepreneur who is serious about scaling to the next level, I would love to speak with them and invite them to reach out! I offer a 30-minute complimentary discovery session through my website, and I am honored to help!
