What's your business, and who are your customers?

I am a SuperCoach & I help people gain the confidence and clarity to make changes in their lives. I largely work with Entrepreneurs that are up-leveling their careers or starting a business in the online space.

Tell us about yourself

I was a fashion executive for over 30 years, enjoying a successful career, but something was calling me to do more. I never dreamed I'd be someone to make videos and go live on social media, but by doing so, I've gained so much confidence and have helped hundreds of clients and impacted millions of people around the world. I'm inspired by life, by love, and by living to the fullest. I want to squeeze everything out of life. For so much of my life, I gave and gave. Now I give and receive, and it's so much better!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I have a balanced life. I can feel my life. Hear it, smell it, hear it, taste it. I'm not late or in a hurry. I've got time. And money. I'm making it, and I'm helping others do the same thing.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Sometimes it's lonely; sometimes, it can feel uncertain. But these are feeling and moments in time, and they pass.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

First, I'd say start. Whatever you want to do- start. Second - create good personal and professional habits and be consistent. Third - hire someone to help you. You'll save time and get further faster, and life is better with someone alongside you.

Where can people find you and your business?
