What inspired you to start your business?
My passion for helping people discover and develop their natural talents alongside my desire to be self-employed, navigate my own time and live a well-balanced life!
Tell us what your business is/and about it!
As a Strengths Coach, I equip and inspire women to use their strengths to THRIVE in their personal and professional lives. CliftonStrengths is a coaching tool I use to help individuals, partnerships and teams discover their strengths, define their core values and determine their priorities.
Who is your dream client?
Women in business! Some of my most memorable coaching moments have been coaching women who run their own businesses and exploring how their natural talents play out in the various roles they play in life. Often, they are juggling so many different balls while spinning several plates, which can get REALLY tiring. It's fun helping them to find a good balance so that they can focus their time and talents on what and who is most important to them.
What’s one thing you wish you knew when you started?
If you could change anything in your business - is there something you would go back and change?
I actually can't think of anything I'd want to change!
How do you juggle the daily grind?
What daily grind? I do what I love and at the pace that works for me and my family, so there is no daily grind. One of my passions is helping people find their way out of the daily grind!
