When I first started my coaching business over a decade ago, I was a dabbler. I taught a few workshops, joined a BNI (Business Networking International) chapter, and earned my Professional Certified Coach credential at The Centre for Coach Training. All very business-like things to do. But I was truly scattered and lacked confidence.
I felt momentarily confident and inspired when I realized I wanted to be a Parent Coach! It felt so true. So right. So real! I was ready to take charge with intense focus and move forward!
My business savvy friend was excited for me, too! In fact, he listed out only the basic rudimentary steps I would need to take to make my vision a reality. I would need to get some professional photos taken, have a logo designed, create a web page, start an e-newsletter, get in contact with this organization and that for referral sources, etc…
I went back to bed for about a year in total overwhelm. All that confidence and inspiration evaporated into despair.
Some people can get an idea for a business, create goals and benchmarks, write up a plan for execution, and plug along with their action steps faithfully, adjusting along the way as needed, to their destinations. Then there are those of us who collapse into overwhelm just thinking about it. We get paralyzed by anxiety, doubt, fear, and/or a history of false starts. Some of us have businesses but feel stuck because we can’t seem to get around to making that business plan everyone seems to think is so important.
Business plans are not for everybody!
There are ways to create a successful business that align with who you are how you need to function in life. It is my mission to help creative people show up for themselves and for the people they are destined to serve with their gifts. I have helped artists, healing professionals, cultural visionaries, and many other “soul” entrepreneurs (pardon the pun) create momentum and success by helping them to focus on what works, honor the insights and intuitions that emerge from the creative mind, and pace progress in a way that lessens overwhelm and nurtures feelings of success.
I did not complete my path to becoming a Parent Coach. I had another journey to make and a deeper calling to discover. I needed to figure out how someone with a squirrely brain like mine could actually create and run a successful business while honoring my own truth and way of being. I couldn’t find my way in any business planning book. I had to make a *lot* of mistakes. I spent many hours in despair. I had more false starts than I can count. But I did it! And so can you. I am here so that your path as a creative professional can go a lot more smoothly, with fewer breakdowns, a minimal amount of self-loathing, quicker results, and a fabulous feeling of freedom, satisfaction, and financial abundance!
