What inspired you to become a Certified Coach?
Mentorship and sharing stories started the journey. I remember working on contract as part of a national C-Team where one of my personal goals and objectives included mentoring. The Brand Manager wrote me a wonderful letter of thanks and suggested that based on our success, perhaps, I should consider “coaching”. Who knew? So, I took her advice, became certified through CCF and have never looked back! A win-win experience!
How did you determine your coaching specialty?
“Walk the walk; and talk the talk” contributed to specializing as a “preneur” coach.
With experience as an intraprenuer, entrepreneur and solopreneur, this year, I am celebrating 25 years as a “preneur”! The time has gone by so fast…combine that practical experience with a commitment to life-long learning and you begin to see a lifestyle pattern that connects with other entrepreneurs.
What is unique about you and your coaching business?
“Keeping it real” and connecting with “right fit” clients leads to “results.”
We create a road-map that supports their own unique definition of success. As part of the process, we introduce various tips and tools to assist with breaking barriers and finding a balance between wealth and well-being.
Speaking and writing! I have a passion for public speaking and connecting with an audience usually leads to creating a solid foundation for one-to-one or group coaching. As an author, Breaking Barriers 10 Entrepreneurial Women Share Their Stories is an effective platform for sharing stories and starting a conversation.
What is the greatest challenge you’ve encountered in your coaching career? How did you overcome it?
The Big “C”…Content!
In the last year I had been searching for new and innovative content that would meet the needs of a “gig workforce.” I have been fortunate enough to form a Managing Strategic Partnership with two business consultants in the creation and launch of The Mechanics of FLOW2. An on-line program that facilities self-study, one-to-one coaching and mastermind sessions based on wealth and well-being. We are currently in pre-launch, introducing a rev/share model with the intention of connecting with other coaches and consultants to provide content for ongoing success.
How has the Certified Coach Practitioner™ Course contributed to your success?
As a member of CCF, I was able to build confidence and continue to support a lifestyle with a focus on wealth and well-being. The journey for reinvention means stepping outside your comfort zone and being part of this community has reinforced that commitment.
If you could share with a new coach one nugget of knowledge, what would you share?
“Walk the walk and talk the talk” – find yourself a “coach” who will assist with helping you to build a business that meets all of your personal and professional goals and objectives!
Create your own success formula! I’m sure we all agree, there are times when we all need a little inspiration and support. So… I developed a new mantra:
“Be the person who creates a ripple
that starts a wave of change.”
If we all commit to one positive contribution in our communities; just think of the possibilities?
