How a coach can help your business

Let’s talk business and how a Coach can help you in yours. 

I don’t talk about it much but it’s actually one of the biggest reasons my clients tend to turn to me. They are looking to start their own business or have started one and they; 

a) don’t know where to start or 
b) are struggling to keep their health on track as business is so busy or 
c) both of the above 

We have Peggy Procrastinator who keeps finding things to do like a new course, a website update or that quick load of washing (any excuse really) that desperately needs doing!

You also might find Mindset Mandy who has the Monkey Mind telling her different stories like ‘maybe you should just go back to full time employment as you are not cut out for this’ or ‘careful what you say or do as people might not like you for that’…. there are many stories in Mandy’s mind

There is also Self Saboteur Sue, she makes loads of progress and takes ten steps forward and starts to hit her stride and then for some reason just stops (I mean, it could be Peggy or Mandy getting in the way here) and falls back a few steps but then has to find her way forward again.

I think we all have a bit of Peggy, Mandy and Sue in us and that’s ok. We just need to recognise when they start rearing their heads. Having a coach is great as it keeps us accountable for our steps forward and also provides us with an opportunity to look at ourselves objectively and unravel all of the thoughts in our heads. Being self-employed can sometimes feel like a lonely journey and having the right support around you is paramount.

So do you think you are Sue, Mandy or Peggy?  

*disclaimer, these names are purely used because of the beginning letter and are not in relation to anyone I know at all. If you feel that I have created a negative belief about your name don’t worry as I can eliminate that through some hypnosis and NLP. 

So how can I help you in business? 

I had a paper round at 13 (it didn’t last long as the papers were so heavy, I kept falling off my bike) and started my own successful business as a wedding make-up artist at 18 (it had a very dodgy name ‘Miracle Makeovers’, but that didn’t stop me!) I worked my way up the ladder through the beauty and wellness industry through roles such as Training, Marketing, Spa Management and Senior Management. I was always looking to learn more and earn more!! 

I then hit a point where I felt like nothing was fulfilling me anymore. I stopped. I started asking the hard questions like; What makes me happy? What do I actually enjoy doing? What makes me want to get out of bed every day? Why am I doing what I am doing? 

Over time I unravelled the answers and realised that the thing I loved to do in all of my roles was help people. I always remember a Managing Director saying to me that I would be a great PA. At the time I was a bit offended as I was trying to climb that big old ladder and become a CEO, but looking back and re framing I realise he was right in a way. I was a great listener and did seem to end up being a confidante for those senior to me. It can get lonely at the top after all! I was also great at getting sh*t done fast.   

These attributes are pretty key to what I do now. Listening, asking the right questions and well frankly helping others get sh*t done.  

Aside from this I am Company Director for a 7-figure business that has absolutely nothing to do with the wellness industry and that role has been a great learning. In this role my part has evolved and keeps evolving over time. I was really the supporting role to the one person that was the business. 

In the beginning I was doing all the niggly things like get an ABN, help pick a name, get a logo, get a website, accounting software, CRM systems…business structures. Down the track it was more helping work on how to negotiate certain contracts, this is where my sales background and DISC training comes in handy and difficult conversations. It then turned in to supporting their health through their growth; for example, tools to help them sleep, manage their time more effectively and efficiently. At the beginning of a business, you can find yourself working all hours of the day and weekend, but it is simply not sustainable and there needs to be a smarter way of working.  

Quite frankly I have been in your shoes personally and have helped others in your shoes and I love to help you move forward so that you feel happy and get results too!


Relieve anxiety……fast!

We are hearing the word anxiety more and more these days. Not only that, but we are also feeling it more and more too. You know, the ’fear’ or slight panic, maybe in your gut or chest. Anxiety can appear quickly but luckily for all of us it can be relieved just as quickly with a new technique I have been introduced to called RARM from the Australian College of Hypnotherapy leading expert Karen Phillip.
