Successful people hire coaches to help them achieve goals, overcome obstacles, learn new skills, start up business, excel in sports, or improve their health or relationships.
Coaching is a multibillion dollar industry that has exploded over the last 25 years. But, did you know that coaching is not a new concept. People have been hiring coaches to mentor and guide since the early 1800s.
Life coaching focuses on personal growth and development, helping individuals clarify their values and goals.
Business coaching focuses on improving performance and productivity in a professional setting, often in relation to specific business objectives.
The purpose of coaching is to support you in setting goals, creating a plan of action to achieve those goals, and then providing the structure, support, and partnerships to help you achieve your goals.
We focus on three main areas of support for our clients. We believe these three areas are essential to support our clients’ success and to empower them during their journey to achieving their personal or professional goals.

Everything starts with mindset and mindset affects everything. Think about that.
We have a thought about it.
Then we make a decision about how we feel about it.
Then we develop beliefs and perceptions about that event that we interpreted with a thought that got the whole process going.
So, then from there, those thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and beliefs affect how we will react or respond to that event.
If we have made a decision that we have a fear or a negative belief about that event, that will affect whether or not you take action or what kind of action you take.
It all starts with mindset, which includes:
- A thoughts that becomes
- A perception which becomes
- A feeling which becomes
- A belief which becomes
- An attitude which affects your overall approach to life.
So, consider, if there is one little fear or limiting belief lurking in your mind about, for example, marketing (lead generation), or sales and selling, how is that going to affect what kind of action you take or don’t take around those activities in your business?
If you want to change your life, change your habits.
Habits are behaviors we do automatically without effort or thinking about it.
We have good habits and bad habits. Or rather, habits that get us positive results and empower us, or those that are healthy or empowering.
Once a habit is formed, it is pretty much there to stay, unless you make a decision and apply some effort into deliberately changing it. Habits are easy to stick to once they are formed but take effort and focus to change.
The Universe abhors a vacuum.
It is easier to exchange a bad habit for a good one.
For example, if you want to quit smoking, perhaps using gum or eating sunflower seeds is an alternative to picking up a cigarette instead. You are used to putting something in your mouth to comfort yourself so you replace something healthier instead. It is the same habit but you have replaced something unhealthy with something that is healthier.
Habits take time to develop. Research does not support the saying that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. That is not true. Research done by Charles Duhigg in his book The Power of Habit, proves that it take on average 66-67 days or between 2-3 months to make or break a habit, depending on how complex or difficult that habit is.
James Clear, in his popular book, Atomic Habits, gives plenty of tips on how to develop deliberate habits in order to transform your life, and supports them with research as well.
Habits may be difficult to form at first but worth the effort if you leverage them as a tool for transforming your life or how you approach your business.
Successful people have successful habits. How about you?
The road to hell is paved with good intentions. But intentions don’t pay the bills or hug a crying child, or get the results you want in your business and life. Following through and honoring your word by doing what you said you would do are what get the job done and build trust in others.
Without accountability, there is no follow through or results. People hire coaches mostly to provide accountability for them to get stuff done. Accountability can be a very empowering thing to motivate you to step up and be the best version of yourself and get stuff done.
Account-ability is simply the ability to be held accountable for your promises and actions. You can resist it or leverage it. The choice is yours
There is something quite magical about accountability and the effect it can have on people when it is entered into with the right person and a very clear agreement. It can be leveraged as a very effective tool of transformation and achievement.
We use accountability to empower our clients to achieve their goals and dreams.
Module 1: Get Started
So, you want to start a new business do you? How exciting?
But wait, before you do, there is a lot to consider and many decisions to make.
It isn’t just about selling some widgets and pocketing the cash. Oh no!
Uncle Sam wants his cut and then there are so many other things to consider too.
In this stage we help new entrepreneurs who are starting out make sure they consider setting things up right to protect you legally and to reduce tax liabilities but also to make sure you are operating correctly for the kind of business you want to do.
There are many important decisions to make when starting up a new business. We provide guidance and advice on how to start up your business, which includes the following:
Introduction to business fundamentals
- Set up your business legal structure
- Assess your current reality
- Define your business goals
- Understand the importance of branding and marketing
Module 2: Get Moving
Once you’ve set up shop, now things are moving, and you are making your mark in the world. This is where the real fun begins and where it becomes real. You are officially in business now! Congratulations!
But, it isn’t just fun and games. This is the roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-to-work stage. That’s right. This is where you invest a lot of energy, effort, time, and yes, money too, to make your mark and let the world know you exist. This is where you get moving with the operations and marketing, the foundation of your business. Getting moving is includes:
- Develop your product/service offerings
- Develop a marketing strategy and plan of action
- Build a strong online presence and utilize social media
- Learn and master sales strategies and techniques
- Set up Operational systems – budget, manage and track finances, scheduling, and tracking KPIs for your business
This is the stage where you are exerting a lot more effort and paying your dues. It is more work and less reward at this point. You are still figuring things out. What works and what doesn’t? How can you do things better and more efficiently?
Module 3: Gain Momentum
Then, there is a tipping point where all that effort starts to pay off. You start to see results and some consistency that you can count on. This is the stage of hope. You can see it working. Your marketing and sales are proof. You can no longer do it all yourself. You need to start adjusting how you do things so you can expand your capacities to get more done with less effort. Now you are ready to:
- Scale and grow your business to expand your customer base
- Build and manage a team
- Implement effective customer service strategies
- Leverage technology and automation tools
Module 4: Grow and Scale
Now that you have momentum, it is time to scale to a point where the business no longer needs you in the day-to-day operations to function and thrive. You are free to focus on higher level tasks such as:
- Plan and develop strategies for sustainable growth and long-term success
- Explore new markets and opportunities – where are you going next?
- Develop strategic partnerships and collaborations to expand and increase the quality and quantity of your network
- Manage and mitigate risks and adapt to market changes – reduce vulnerabilities
Sadly, most businesses that start up never make it past their 5 year anniversary. Of all the new businesses that start up, only about 10% of them ever reach this point in their business growth cycle. A lot of businesses just barely get by surviving at the Get Started stage and never experience the excitement of momentum. They stay in their comfort zone and never grow to do things differently that actually give them more success and freedom.
We show you how to let go of some control in order to gain more freedom. We show you how to shift from doing it all yourself to trusting your ability to lead, train, and manage others to do all the work for you.
Are you ready to be free and build a money making machine that operates on autopilot whether you are working or not?
