Running your own business is challenging, sometimes lonely, and frequently stressful. You giving all your hours and put all your effort into your business, very often without getting any rewards...
A business coach or a mentor is someone who looks at your business - your strengths and weaknesses - from an outsider's perspective and guides you towards the results you want to achieve with your business. Aside from motivation and support when you face challenges running your own business, you will be lifted beyond your capabilities and will receive:
the clarity of what you want to achieve with your business;
help with systemising your business;
guidance on how to move from having a "job" you've created for yourself to an independent business
help with getting the confidence to understand your business numbers;
making your business outstanding;
finding a balance between work and private life;
separating urgent and important tasks from others;
knowing your clients; and
creating a niche in the market.
You will learn so much more to change and apply...
I've run my own business since 2009 and became very successful and independent within a few years, in part thanks to a very good business coach and numerous seminars, but most importantly because I was applying all the knowledge they shared with me. Since then I started to coach many business-minded people, helping them turn their passions into profitable businesses. Business mentoring is something I truly enjoy doing, sharing your experiences and expertise, and pushing myself and others to expand our horizons. I love seeing great results and hearing new challenges being overcome. Life and business are both journeys full of adventure, issues and celebration!
I am a business mentor for Prince's Trust enterprise course graduates, in addition to delivering the course. It is such a joy to give back and to help people build their dream lives!
We'll find your direction!
Many people are searching for the one person to be satisfied with and to help them feel great in life. They get together hoping they will be happy and together forever! However, the reality is that people break up, divorce and separate more often than ever. Why does it happen that way? Because people are not willing to work on their relationships. People are hoping to date, live together, get married and apply all their own rules and "how it must be" to their partner and new family. And of course, ideally they want their partners to change as well. Then the reality kicks in: their partner doesn't change and are not willing to, so life is not as they imagined and soon enough they separate. How about finding happiness within yourself first? How about learning about yourself and your partner before committing to each other? And creating a new family with fair rules and values based on both partners?
So often I have women turning to me to receive help with their relationships on their own. And while it is possible to work with one person only, as one party will be sorted and understood, the best results are achieved when couples get relationship counselling and/or psychotherapy together, when both are committed and working on it.
The difference between counselling and psychotherapy is:
Counselling refers to a brief treatment that centres around behaviour patterns; and
Psychotherapy focuses on working with clients for in the long-term and focuses on insight into emotional problems and difficulties.
My favourite way of work with couples is: Coaching
The way I like to work with couples is to help them understand, know and love each other even more. I love to help them discover their own love languages, their needs, and overcome past issues to live fulfilling lives. In a relationship you must become better yourself allow each other to have your own space, in addition to having a happy family life. Relationship is about teamwork - each member has their own duties and responsibilities and when you have to step up you just do it because you are a part of the team! Values, promises, expectations...all that and so much more is discovered and exercised during our sessions!
Building Your Confidence
Many people suffer from being too shy, not confident enough, or being too critical of themselves. It affects your social life, your work and career, your relationships, and the happiness level in your life! Arrogance is an extreme you see on the streets very often, but it has nothing to do with actual confidence. More often it is showing off because a person has little or no true confidence.
If you've ever observed kids, all of them, without exclusion, up to the age of around 5, are super confident in themselves, their bodies, looks and talents. In fact, every child says: "I am very smart", "I am beautiful", "when I grow up, I will get myself an awesome car, castle, etc." Later in their lives parents, teachers, their friends and many other people slowly destroy that adorable and natural confidence and help to increase a self-doubt, lower self-esteem, and foster a lack of confidence which sometimes can even lead to suicidal thoughts.
It is so important to know yourself and your abilities, but it is more important to believe you can! Olympic champions are pushed by their coaches to go faster, better and greater than previous record breakers - and they succeed! You can do it, too. It's all about who do you think you CAN be, not who you actually are. It doesn't matter what happened to you in the past - you can't change that. But you can change your world right now!
