Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Rebecca Stump & Amanda Baudier, Co-Founders of Full Plate Full Cup, located in New York, NY, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
The FPFC methodology combines Executive Coaching principles with grounding practices to help high-performers achieve more and feel better than they ever thought possible. Founded in 2022, we offer one-on-one coaching, lead corporate trainings, and curate bespoke workshops & events. Our personal clients are generally successful mid-career professionals all the way up to CEOs, and our corporate clients are generally startups or companies with 200 or fewer employees.
Tell us about yourself
We each have individual stories, but as a pair, we are motivated by our mission to bring more joy and fulfillment into people's lives. We truly believe that everyone deserves to be wildly successful but more than that -- to be wildly happy. Motivation is easy when you get to see your clients make quantum leaps towards success and freedom every single day.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
While our business just launched in September, our biggest accomplishment thus far has been getting positive recognition from our peers and long-time leaders in our industry. We don't just talk the talk -- we walk the walk --and high-profile people are taking note of that.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Prioritization. As a small, self-funded business, you cannot do everything (even though you want to). So every single day, you have to use what we refer to as "ruthless prioritization." Start with the one most important thing -- do what you can WELL -- and put the rest to the side. You don't even have time to question yourself when you are a small business owner -- you just keep going.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Get crystal clear on your mission and use it as your north star to guide every single decision you make.
- Become an expert in your industry BEFORE you make the leap to launching your business. Take courses, get a mentor, run it as a side hustle, and collect data. That will allow you to start off strong and not learn every single lesson on the fly.
- Be your own biggest cheerleader. If you don't DEEPLY believe in and support yourself -- no one else will. Get over feeling cringing about self-promotion real quick and shout about your business from the rooftops.
