It’s such an honour to coach motivated entrepreneurs who have a dream of making a difference in people’s lives.
I just received an email this morning with these comments –
“Thank you Kerrie for being such a fabulous supporter, motivator and coach extraordinaire. You have been a key person walking beside me as I have taken my new business, Beating Burnout – A new era in Stress Management – from a dream to reality.
Your belief in my abilities, combined with your natural talents for keeping me inspired, focused and moving forward have been invaluable. Having someone like you cheering me on has made all the difference.”
– Robyn McNeill, Managing Director, Beating Burnout
I recently interviewed Robyn on a conference call with coaching colleagues from Australia and NZ because I wanted to give others a chance to get a glimpse of her enthusiasm, commitment and focused hard work in getting her business off the ground.
One thing (amongst many) that Robyn really has right, is that building a business is a team effort – even if you’re a sole trader at the moment. Besides hiring me as her coach to be really strategic and inspired, she’s hired a media-relations expert and invested in extra training. I see so many entrepreneurs – not just coaches, speakers, and authors – who ‘go it alone’ and find it a challenging and lonely journey. It can be a lot more fun, collaborative and rewarding!
So consider what you and your enterprise needs right now. Perhaps it first needs your absolute self-belief that it’s possible – then the people who will help you build it. Coach, Marketer, Book-keeper… surround yourself with a great team!
Cheering you on,
PS. Robyn is a great example of a ‘learning leader’ and one who dreams big and takes risks. For more on this theme check out the inspiring conversation I enjoyed with the CEO of Dun & Bradstreet, Sara Mathew in San Francisco.
