Tell us about yourself
I've been coaching for over a decade. I ran several six and seven-figure businesses and fell in love with helping aspiring entrepreneurs reach their goals. When you see the look on a business owner's face when they reach that “Aha!” moment, it’s exciting. It’s not something I did, it’s something they did, and they know it. I supplied the tools, but they climbed the mountain. I look for that moment in every coaching session. That is the juice that keeps me doing what I do, to know that they are getting the results they want based on the passion and commitment they bring to the table. I help them with a new perspective on their business model.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
The hard work and dedication I have put into growing my business. It's a challenging but rewarding journey that requires grit, perseverance, and resolve.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Removing limiting beliefs. I think most entrepreneurs dismiss the mindset part of a business because they don’t really understand it. I didn’t understand it when I started. But removing limiting beliefs and mastering your mindset is truly the hardest thing to do when it comes to being a business owner. I have been studying all levels of the mind since I was a teenager, from visualization to priming, and I’m still learning new things about myself and ways to overcome my mindset. If you truly want to be a great entrepreneur, you must first master yourself.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Follow your passion and believe in yourself. Don't let fear and self-doubt hold you back.
- Be resilient and adaptable. Don't be afraid to try new things. Take risks. Learn from your mistakes and use them to improve and grow.
- Build a strong network and surround yourself with the right people. Find a coach or mentor who's done it before and do whatever it takes to work with them. As the saying goes, "Your network is your net worth."
