You are a passionate, growth minded business owner ready to impact your sphere of influence to the fullest extent of your ability. You realize that working smart is just as important as working hard. Regardless of whether you are a one person show or manage a team, you know that effective communication and truly understanding yourself, your team, and your clients is the bottom line to growing a thriving business.
I’m just like you.
Just as I was finishing graduate school with a master’s in corporate communication with an emphasis in marketing, I was also launching a new business. I was struggling, I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t booking clients, I felt uncomfortable selling, and I couldn’t figure out why some areas of business felt effortless and other areas insurmountable. Then I was introduced to a communication assessment that totally changed my personal life and my business. Within a few months I had built my business as a solopreneur to $10,000 plus monthly sales, and over a 12 month time period I booked every single client that I met with. It felt effortless. Why?
- I knew myself and how to connect who I am with what I do
- I knew how to actively listen and answer the question behind the questions that my potential clients were asking
- …and I knew how to bridge the gap between the two with authentic communication
You can’t afford to blend in. Think about the most successful businesses in your field, what drew you to them? Why do people spend money with them and return again and again? Many new and struggling entrepreneurs focus on selling just what they do. Sometimes that works. Most of the time that results in needing to compete with dozens to hundreds or even thousands of people that do exactly the same thing and attracting clients that are just looking for the cheapest option. I’ve been there and done that and won’t ever go back!
Stop. Take a deep breath. Embrace who you authentically are. The most successful entrepreneurs are those that connect who they are with what they do. Potential clients are so drawn to who you are as a person and the way you bring that to your business that price becomes secondary – they know that they have to have you.
DON'T MIMIC SOMEONE ELSE'S SUCCESS. DEFINE YOUR OWN.
Who are you? Quirky? Nerdy? Creative? Do you only wear black? Have pink hair? An obsession with detail? No detail at all? Schedule to the minute? Go with the flow? Work to the soundtrack of Led Zeppelin? Mover and a shaker? Feeler and connector? Do your best work after everyone else goes to bed? Get up before the sun?
Be authentic, be real, be brave, and watch your business thrive while you find more enjoyment in it than you ever have before. I’m here to help you do just that.
My style of coaching helps you identify your secret sauce – that unique skill that is totally innate, one of the keys to your success, feels effortless, and because of that you often overlook it. It’s that secret superpower that people around you look at, admire, and think “I only wish I could be like that.” You owe it to yourself and the world around you to harness that incredible skill and bring it to your business, your brand, and your interpersonal life. When you embrace those key strengths and gain the tools to apply them you will feel that incredible sense of operating not from who you think you should be but from who you truly are – and that is a priceless gift to yourself. You are worth it.
My secret sauce is strategy. I know what questions to ask to discover your big picture, break it down to small details, and then construct a plan to get from A to Z in manageable parts that takes the overwhelm out of achieving your business and communication dreams.
Every person has a unique filter through which they view the world, a specific need from those around them, a passion that drives them, and a character strength that is innate to them. When you identify what each of these are you can communicate with anyone effectively and with ease. The best part? No slimy sales techniques, no leading questions, no scripts. I got to be fully myself with all my quirks and strengths and my clients got to be the same. In every meeting they were pulling out their wallets and ready to sign contracts before I had even finished giving them all the information. In my feedback forms the overwhelming response on why they booked me was that they felt totally understood and completely trusted me.
I can teach you to do the same!
