Your coach & biggest fan

6 years ago I was an elementary teacher and part time business owner. I felt safest relying on someone else to tell me what to do and give me a paycheck…even if I was only making $20,000 a year. Safe was best.

Entrepreneurship made me feel unsafe, so I hid behind my husband in our photography business…which led to a big mess in a few years.

For me, that time came our fourth year in business when I realized I'd run our business into the ground because I was so scared to do anything new. We hadn't had a new booking in over 8 months. And I didn’t know it, but I was about to dive headlong into a series of losses that devastated me.

On New Year’s Eve that year, we photographed one of the most difficult weddings of our career and I lost a baby while photographing.

Following that, I lost a major business deal, a dear friend, and a family member. In a matter of weeks, I felt like everything I touched crumbled before me-my body, my business, my relationships, my business, and my identity.

I remember the moment that I realized I needed help. I had just enough money to make it through slow season and I was talking with a coach who cost that exact amount of money.

I was shaking and sobbing, but I knew one thing to be true:

Nothing changes if nothing changes.

The moment I clicked “sign contract” to hire my first private coach was the moment things began shifting for me.

It wasn't long before I started experiencing massive breakthroughs. I learned about abundance, began studying the human brain, and decided it was time to really OWN my business. In a few short months, I single handedly booked our calendar full for the next year while increasing our sales average by $600/sale.

I launched two new businesses and, before I knew it, had clients lined up to work with me. I tripled my side business income in a matter of 2 months and began tracking the measures that lead to these successes.

Surely, if I could do it, others could too, right?

I started testing my methods with others and found that the successes weren't limited to me! I had learned how to hardwire my brain for success instead of safety. And it was something that I could replicate over and over with each new client.

As we worked on a success mindset and releasing limiting beliefs, we started unlocking business opportunities my clients were blind to before. I watched their sales averages soar by $800-2,000 per sale.

I found that, even though we weren't talking about the numbers yet, when we worked on mindsets and aligning their business with their true purpose, the numbers began correcting themselves. Soon, their income began to reflect the true value of what my clients were offering. 

Why did it work for us? The common thread for our success is this:

We learned to hardwire our brains for success

Because of THAT, everything changed.

I want that for you. Because the reality is that, as small business owners, we all get preeeeetty scared sometimes. And we all need someone to come alongside us and say "I've been there-here's the path."

You're not alone, my friend and you never were. Let's team up and make your business something you AND your clients truly believe in.
