“Why Coach?” Someone asked. Why Not Is My Response

Someone asked me why did I decide to coach instead of just facilitating workshops like I did in the past.  It really surprised me that they asked that question.  Teaching one two-hour workshop will never give someone the full transformation that a complete coaching program will yield.

I’ve learned that coaching and consulting in any area of life including business development is a very fluid concept.  Every day I expect an “Aha” moment and a “win.”  I started off referring to myself as a consultant, billing by the hour.  I later realized the best way to help people was to ensure a full transformation instead of selling breadcrumbs based on what customers thought they needed.  An “aha” in that moment- what people thought they needed and what they “actually” needed, never really aligned!  As a result, I designed a 10-week transformational program to help my clients move from their state of need to a state of bliss.  This was supposed to be the easy part because I had mastered curriculum development as a preschool teacher!  To my surprise, the process of developing the program transformed my own life.  Two old wives’ tales hold true in life- 1. You are always your first client. And 2. As a coach, drinking my own medicine is essential to the process.

With that said, the first transformation was a mindset shift.  I had to dispel every limiting belief I allowed myself to hold on to.  I had to overcome my fears and my belief that being “shy” was just my personality and that’s how God created me.  I had to press pass a scarcity mindset (helping people doesn’t pay much, but the Kingdom rewards are great).  This is not found anywhere in the Bible.  I had to come to an understanding that hiding and playing small is not humility.  As I experienced each of these epiphanies, I realized that mindset is the power behind true success.  I can give you every tool needed to build a six-figure business, but without the right mindset, none of the tools will work.  What good is a power drill without electricity?  Because this was so critical, I had to go back and incorporate mindset into my curriculum.  I have learned that you cannot teach anything until you consult with the mindset of the student.

Mind Your Mission goes beyond the typical “how to start a business” by offering a transformational process that allows its clients to

  1. Shift their mindset
  2. Dive deep and find their God-given purpose
  3. Build a business around that purpose, and
  4. Experience life in the overflow

I help my clients with “getting started,” locating startup resources, brand development, marketing, financial management, and customer relationships to ensure their business is a success and adds value to the community.  If you are ready to stop watching others live their dreams and you are ready to manifest your own dreams, then schedule your call with me today and let’s get you on the road to minding your mission.
