If you are an entrepreneur (current or emerging), you will know the journey is not a linear one. No matter what stage, it has its challenges, and its ups and downs. For business founders, it can be lonely at the top. Those working with you may not understand the decisions and trade-offs you regularly need to make, and not appreciate the risks you are taking in starting a business.
Entrepreneurs are a different breed. While many aspects of the craft can be learned and taught, the spark that drives someone to leave the safety of regular employment and launch an enterprise is something that you either have or you don’t.
Cards on the table: I have not attended an accredited course of study that allows me to put up my shingle as a coach. Rather, I help others who are on similar journeys to the ones I’ve traversed. That way, I can have genuine empathy for what you are experiencing.
If you are early in the journey, I can help with the steps required to turn your idea into a business, to develop a business and marketing plan, to build the pieces that you need around you, and to maintain the positive emotions and work-life-balance that are very necessary. I can and will challenge you and call you out on assumptions and projections when necessary.
If you already have an established business, I can help with the important stage of going from owning a job to owning a business. That means helping you transform your business so it’s worth something substantial to a prospective buyer. Making your business sale-ready is a worthwhile exercise even if you never want nor intend to sell it.
Book a free 30 minute discussion where I will provide some feedback and guidance on your business and your aspirations. If you find that helpful and we proceed no further, I’m happy to have provided my time. If you then decide I can help, then I’m even happier.
