Please share with us what you do and who your business helps.
I am a business coach for women entrepreneurs. I help women entrepreneurs who are positioned for online success, develop their brand, business model and being so they increase their income and impact and empower other women through their example.
How did you go from “idea” to an online business?
I always dreamed to be an entrepreneur because that looked like the epitome of success to me. Flexibility, freedom, finances, fun is what excited me but I read a statistic awhile back that said 75% of women owned businesses make less than $50,000 a year. That number shocked and saddened me. It just didn't make sense that so many women are not success they desired. I decided to quit my job cold turkey and conquer the challenge to see if I could crack the code to having a 6 figure business. It took me about 6 months of struggling and a pending foreclosure before by the grace of God I invested in a high level coach who shared with me the mindset and business model I needed to actually start attracting and converting dream clients and hitting my income goal. It is now my purpose to help women that I have identified are in a similar situation I was in figure out how to increase their income and impact leveraging their brand, business model and who they are being and becoming in the process.
In your opinion, what is a hard-to-spot pitfall that is critical to avoid in entrepreneurship?
Underestimating how much of a learning curve it is to become the CEO of your life and business. This is why I believe so much in business coaching. Many people assume that attracting paying clients will be easy as soon as they launch and underestimating the maturity and discipline it takes to stay motivated and invested.
In your opinion, what was the #1 thing that helped you experience a breakthrough in business?
Investing in my premium one on one coach. The amount of shifts and transformations that happened during that relationship has served me very well. It took me so much further, faster than me trying to figure it out alone.
What is one thing you’ve told yourself that kept you going during your darkest hour?
As long as I don't go to jail or prison, I am going to figure it out. LOL. Just kidding. Not really. But seriously, that this is the only way. That pursuing this dream was more worth it than sitting back wishing. That this is possible.
What's your best advice for entrepreneurs who are frustrated and overwhelmed?
Focus on self mastery. Journal, do mindset work, talk nicer to yourself, empower your inner voice instead of letting it abuse you. Most of the time we know what to do we just don't trust our intuition our gut. We begin to overthink stuff. Just keep it simple, let it out, get it out and don't hesitate to act!!
What are your favorite tools and resources that make your life easier and keep your business running smoothly?
Trello!!! I love to organize my thoughts, my clients, my business and even dinner using this free project management program. It is a very visual and has a list type of feeling to it.
To conclude, what is one thing you would like to share with my audience to inspire them to go for new goals?
You are divine. You are meant for great things! You are meant to shine bright to light a path for others to follow you. Now, go rule your empire!!!
