When I started my business, there were so many days I just wanted to give up. When my husband asked me about my business, I changed the subject. I was so ashamed that I had worked so hard
and spent so much time and money.
I felt like I had tried everything and I was still not making money.
I was afraid I would never figure it out. I was terrified I would have to tell him, “I’m not cut out for this. I give up.” I could just imagine the disappointment on his face, the look of regret for all the money we put into the business, from retirement savings or on a credit line, that we might never get back.
Suddenly, when I was just about ready to give up, it happened.
I created money in my business.
What if I had given up when I was so close to making it work?
I would never have known how capable I am. I wouldn’t have the freedom and flexibility of owning my own business, the power to create exactly what I want or the joy of contributing to a better world.
I would have missed out on
THE best part of being a coach, seeing the women I help light up when they figure out what they’re capable of!
Equipping Your Business
Make More Sense
of your money
I want to help women just like me learn how to be okay with money, how to stop merely surviving, how to thrive financially AND emotionally.
Most of my clients thought they couldn’t afford coaching but they quickly realized that they what they couldn’t afford was to keep making the same mistakes over and over again. They were willing to bet on themselves and finally believe in themselves again. They were nervous and afraid, but they realized that they were past ready to start investing in the future that they wanted for themselves where they were making their dreams come true, instead of sitting on the sidelines merely surviving.
And it has paid off for them.
I love, love, love seeing my clients empower themselves to do with money what they thought wasn’t possible in their lives. I love seeing them find that confidence that I could see in them from Day 1, but that they thought was nonexistent when it came to money. I love seeing my clients become the master of their finances and start killing it in every area of their life.
My husband and I were both burned out at work. Losing his sister “before her time” woke us up to how short life is. At ages 50 and 53, we both quit our jobs. My husband chose full retirement. But I had always dreamed of owning my own business and the financial margin God helped us create allowed me to chase that dream.
I wasn’t always good with money. I wasn’t always successful in life. I failed plenty. Despite having bachelors and masters in accounting, I left my first marriage deep in debt. I was a hot mess, stumbling along thinking “I don’t know what I’m doing, where I’m going and I’m not even sure I want to be here”, when I was fired from my job.
What could have been the end became the beginning when I got a fresh start at a new job in a new city, making significantly more money. That’s when I met my second husband. Ironically, we met through a mutual friend when he replaced me at the place I had been fired from! Proof that all things are possible with God.
Fast forward to the burnout that led to our early retirement. Work was my life. I was always a hard worker. I would put in whatever time I needed to make a contribution.
But it never felt like enough. It always felt like if I had more time,
I could do more, contribute more, have a greater impact. When you treat the symptom and not the cause, you continue to live with the cause. The same thing happened when I started my business. There was never enough time. I still felt like I should be doing more, like I could have a greater impact.
Even though I’m now a coach, I still missed seeing this pattern in my life. But my coach didn’t miss it. She pointed it out to me, helped me see what had been holding me back most of my life, and helped me change it. Coaching helped me change my life and it’s how I help other women change their lives.
Why I Do This
That’s why I became a coach.
You don’t have to learn by making the same mistakes I made.
On my journey of becoming a coach and starting a business, what I’ve learned I’m now sharing with my clients, like:
I developed a six-step process for making money in your business. Along with one-on-one weekly coaching, this process is one of the tools I use to make it easier and quicker for you to make money in your new business. Your journey won’t be exactly like mine, because you’re unique and so is your business.
I walk with you to guide you on your unique journey.
I’m on a mission to help women entrepreneurs make money in their business and build the life that makes them thrilled to get up every day. It’s an honor to help you create the impact that you were meant to make through your business.
I love what I do. I love helping women like you see that YOU are MADE for MORE!
