Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jill Wright, Founder of Jill Wright Coaching, located in Arrington, TN, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am a life and money coach. I help other life coaches make money easy. I serve women who want to build or grow their coaching business but are intimidated by money or think making money is hard.
Tell us about yourself
I was tired of the corporate grind. My husband was also tired of his job. We had built a strong investment portfolio over the course of our careers in automotive, finance, and healthcare. Turns out we had enough to retire, so we did. I love helping people, and when I discovered life coaching, I knew I had discovered my calling. I love helping coaches attack the scarcity mindset that keeps them playing small and not stepping into their big vision to make a big impact.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is tackling the mountain of making six figures. I had to tackle the same things I help my clients with and let go of the identity I had lived with for so long that I wasn’t anything special.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The hardest thing for my clients is shedding the stories they’ve believed about themselves for so long. Your identity, the things you identify most strongly with, whether it’s who you’ve been or what you believe about money or about being financially successful or wealthy, are the key to unlocking your potential and success in your business. You can do all the things the experts tell you, but if you still have a scarcity mindset, you’ll struggle to maintain it, or you’ll feel awful getting there.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Find a coach, find a community where you feel comfortable and supported, find the stories that make you feel capable, confident, and content, and practice living those stories daily.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Anything you do, do it as 100% you. Anything less is not worth doing.
