How does your business help entrepreneurs and professional women?
I’ve walked a mile in the shoes of any woman who has decided that living by someone else’s priorities just doesn’t work for her anymore. I get the woman who, despite all the challenges of motherhood and her dedication to her family, seriously *needs* to work for her sanity and sense of self-worth. I understand the woman who has all the smarts, the ambition, and who is willing to make big things happen on her own terms, but who needs someone to help her get it done. I’ve been there, I’m doing it, and I’ve bring nearly 10 years of business and life coaching experience plus PR, marketing and small business planning with me.
What are you passionate about in your business and what steps are you taking to make it profitable?
I absolutely love our Mom Biz Retreats and my VIP coaching clients. The thrill of solving problems, getting these women to take action, seeing their confidence grow as they start to see the path to follow is what fills my cup! One of the steps we’re doing to make both of these more profitable is increasing our value and finally increasing our fees to match the market.
