Sometimes, it’s hard to get a handle on what Business Coaching actually is. I created this video to help explain what it is that I DO.
I’ve been an entrepreneur for over 30 years. You see, I have ridden that wave of being an entrepreneur, the ups and the downs, the sleepless nights. Like you, I have invested everything into my business and my leadership. This has come at a cost. I was working long hours; I didn’t have the balance in my life. My family came second.
I’ll never forget that time when I was leaving for yet another business trip. My son, Sage, at the door, my wife giving me a hug as they both cried. My son was telling me not to leave, pulling on my leg saying, “Daddy, don’t go.” I knew I had to provide for my family. I knew I had to go. And also, I knew that if I continued down this journey, that I would lose Amber and Sage.
Another secret that I’ve kept for a long time is I’m dyslexic. See, I switch my letters around, my numbers, I read slower than most. But one of the brilliant things about being a dyslexic is that I see things differently. I look at things that people may not see. For me, I have learned that that is one of my greatest superpowers. You see, why this is important to you is that as being an entrepreneur for over 30 years, and a dyslexic, that I have rode the ups and downs, and that I take a different perspective and view, and the willingness to think outside the box and vision bigger than most people have ever visioned before in their lives. I’ll stand side-by-side with my clients to help them create their passion and their vision.
One of my clients, she had sold a business for over $1 million and she was on to her next venture. She had opened a couple retails stores. When she went into this new business venture, she started getting into the business and trying to control the business instead of keeping the big vision of the organization and seeing the full potential of what was possible. So, we sat down together and worked together for six months. She pulled back from her company and let her team do what they knew how to do best, where she could focus on holding the big vision. Within that six months, she had an offer on the table for over 100 stores.
Or like another client where she has been in business for over 30 years, a couple different businesses. One of them, she lost the spark. She lost the vision for what was possible for her company. And so, we worked together on reigniting that vision, dreaming bigger than she’s ever dreamed before, and creating that vision and coming from that place that she was able to hire a whole new senior staff. We started working on creating strategies and implementing them into her organization that is now changing the culture of her company.
