How are you different from other “business coaches?”
Yep, there are other business coaches out there. What makes me so damned special? Well, my sparkling personality, of course.
But even more than that, I have a deep dedication to changing the way business is done in this world. We have all seen the ramifications of business run from greed and manipulation, but the clear strategies of how to do it differently have been hard to find and follow…Until now.
With the obvious trending in culture towards more sustainability, entrepreneurs dedicated to what I call, Do Awesome by Doing Good, stand to be leaders in the movement and have thriving businesses…rather than continue old school models and lag behind.
All of my work, from 1:1 coaching to speaking at events, workshops to free calls, marketing to sales have developed out of my 4xP Approach:
Serving People + Caring for the Planet’s resources + Your Purpose =
[Simple Version: People+Planet+Purpose=Prosperity]
I created the 4xP Approach after spending a stupid amount of time and money learning the best strategies from the old school mentality, the best of the spiritual practices that lead to success, and the Triple Bottom line, which is gaining a huge amount of ground in the corporate setting.
So, why don’t I play with corporate if I want to create change on such a big scale? Well, because entrepreneurs are just plain sexier! You have ambition and drive, passion around your vision, and an agility that a big corporation just can’t match. Plus, with more and more smart ass people interested in creating a lifestyle as well as a thriving business, the old school model of 9-5 just ain’t where the future is at.
And, before I forget, one other thing that makes me different (and I have been told, more effective) is that I come to business mentoring from a coaching perspective. What the hell does that even mean? Yes, I give you all of the book smarts you need on rocking your business, but that’s actually not the hardest part… where people really get caught up is in their own limiting beliefs, in playing too small, in lacking clarity and confidence, structure and systems, accountability and support. This is where I excel: Taking you past the things holding you back and into the life that you dream of.
Who are your clients exactly?
My clients cover a range of industries: from tarot coach to sustainable designer; workplace bully consultant to meditation teacher; graphic designer to yoga instructor; financial planner to international development consultant. “Young” to “old.” Start-up to empire. More and more people are learning about my approach and gravitating towards this work. (Good to know you’re not alone, right?!)
They all may sound very different, but there are a few main threads that they have in common:
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
I have some high expectations of the people I work with because without their 100% commitment they’ll go nowhere. My clients generally have a positive outlook on life, are total go-getters, have a spiritual side, and love to experience all that life has to offer. They want to be creative and in control every single day, as well as have tons of freedom in their life (and potentially work from anywhere in the world).
Also, and not a small thing, since we’re going to be doing a lot of work together, I want them to have some fun with it all, so nobody who can’t laugh at themselves…and at me!
For what type of professional is this program NOT going to work?
First off, in the name of serving you as best I can, if I can tell that my services aren’t going to be useful for you, I will do my best to recommend somebody else who can help. I have no interest in selling you something that isn’t going to get you closer to your dream business and life.
Otherwise, I know that I don’t work well with people who tend to bitch and complain, who don’t take responsibility for their own work, and who aren’t open to covering all aspects of their life in order to get to where they want to go.
If you’re looking for a get-rich-quick scheme, you’ll have to go elsewhere. The truth of running a business is that there is work to be done. Yes, much of it is work you love doing, so you have to pry yourself away from it, but when you can’t outsource it all, there will be plenty of things you would rather not do. If you’re the type who is going to bow out of doing what it takes, then bow out now.
Does this really work?
Abso-friggin’-lutely! Coaching and business mentoring have been proven methods in creating a kick ass business (and life), and are only growing as more and more people step into their dream of owning their own business and having a great lifestyle to boot. For some testimonials from my clients, check out the “Cheers” page on the website.
What results can I expect?
Here’s my BIG promise to you: After working with me you will come away with more clarity, confidence, and freedom in your business and life. What does this get you? A business that thrives based on your values and ideas of success. A lifestyle that makes you pinch yourself it’s so friggin’ lovely. A business that can be scaled to any size you want depending on how big you want to play in the future. Sounds pretty good, right?!
And, because I put my money where my mouth is (but not in my mouth… that’d be a waste), I whole heartedly offer you a 100% money back guarantee. If after our work together (in any of my programs) you feel like you did not get what you needed, then your moola is yours. It’d be gross of me to keep it. (Of course, I assume utmost integrity here. Since I commit to the work with you, I expect you to commit to the work, too. No free-loaders, ’cause karma will bite you and your biz in the ass and you’ll hurt my heart).
How quickly can I expect results?
This depends on you and how much you’re willing to put into the process. Are you going to half-ass your way through it all? Well, expect results to come a little slower (if at all).
Are you going to go gung-ho and get things done? You can expect results to come your way sooner. Some people get “it” in one session alone while others can take up to a year (if you’re working another job, it may take longer).
Will I recover the investment I put into this coaching program?
So, you’re worried about the money and the investment. I hear you. I’ve been there, too.
So, here’s my question back at you: What will happen in your business if you have more clarity, confidence, and freedom? How many more clients will you be able to attract and work with? How much is each client worth to you ($ wise, though I am sure you love them, too)?
If you knew you could get your business working in a way that makes you feel free and alive, then is it going to be worth it? I am going with hells-yea.
On the other side of that question, what will happen if you don’t step up and commit to making your business solid? I’m guessing more of the same frustration, confusion and exhaustion. I hate going there, but you need to be conscious of it all.
So, why should I do this now?
Thousands of businesses fail every year. I believe it’s because they don’t commit fully to their business with a do-what-I-gotta-do approach. That and a lack of finding the best support system to help them.
Without committing and finding the right support, how far will you get? Based on how things have been going so far in your business, what will happen if you wait any longer?
On a selfish level, since the people I work with are out there creating real, positive change in people’s lives, I cannot accept that they’re the ones that might fail. I want you out there kicking booty and changing the world! Not holding onto “someday.”
And, last but not least, my answer to the “why now” is this:
Because it’s time. It’s time to make your dream real. It’s time to make this project a full-fledged, successful business. It’s time to be able to confidently talk about what you do. It’s time for the life you’ve been wanting, yearning to live.
Julia, based on everything I’ve read and heard about you, I know you’re the one I want to work with… so how do we get started?
