Who’s your favourite entrepreneur and why?
My fave entrepreneur is Tony Robbins. He has inspired me for over 2 decades with his massive heart and incredible communication skills, energy, passion and care for people
Why did you start your business and what gave you the idea?
I was a personal trainer and weight-loss coach for over 10 years. People kept asking me how I continued to keep getting clients so 5 years ago I ran a workshop to teach them. I loved it so much that I decided I’d go all-in as a business coach to help people get more clients.
What do you enjoy most about running your own business?
I love helping people and seeing the impact it makes in my life for them to get solutions to their problems.
I love the freedom and flexibility of working from home.
I love building something that is mine and growing my skills.
I love that I get to have my creative ideas come to life and build something that is lasting and will help thousands of people.
What three pieces of advice do you wish you’d been given when you started?
- Get a mentor
- Surround yourself with a supportive community
- Stay focused on income-generating activities
What advice would YOU give someone thinking about starting a business?
The fastest way to succeed is to spend time with people who have done what you want to do. The quicker you get a mentor, the better. It will save you so much time and money in the long-run.
Believe in yourself and back yourself. It took a massive leap of faith to leave a steady income and work for myself. It’s not easy to let go of certainty and comfort, but I’m so grateful to myself for doing it and to have been given the advice to do what you love.
Focus on service. If you help enough people get what they want, you will get what you want. Genuinely care about people.
Invest. You can’t be scared to put money into your business. If you don’t invest, you won’t grow.
What skills and knowledge areas would you recommend those starting out in business get acquainted with quickly?
What does your IDEAL business look like? Even if you’re not there yet, what would it look like if your business was ideal?
My ideal business helps thousands of business owners every year to do what they love, using their unique brilliance to make a significant impact in the world, through my programs, coaching and community. I have an incredible team and run high-end masterminds and an online membership. We run in-person and online events and have smooth, streamlined systems. We have coaches working for us that are making a huge difference in people’s lives. We contribute a significant part of our profit to the causes we care about.
What problem does being a Member of the HerBusiness Network solve for you and your business? And, how?
I love being part of the HerBusiness Network because of the insider tips from Suzi with her many years of expertise, and the support of other business owners. I love the roundtables to work through issues where I’m stuck and get great ideas. I find the 30-day focus really helps pull me up into the clouds rather than staying down in the weeds.
