A year before I joined The Coaching Institute I was in a national role and before I finished I started to get my self back on track, worked on my health and I lost 20kgs. I knew that I didn’t want to go back to working in a similar role, so I took a leap of faith and joined after many phone conversations and emails with Fiona.
I had the idea for my business The Phoenix Experience for a while, I knew I could take clients on my international adventure experiences but I wanted to make it life changing. I knew coaching was what I needed to bring it all together. When I did some research and The Coaching Institute was the obvious choice, it made sense with a real focus on being able to create a sustainable business.
When I started this journey at The Coaching Institute in May last year I had a back up plan, it was an awesome one too. That all changed when I went into my intake weekend (Foundations of Coaching Success Training) Joe Pane was incredible and he gave me the best bit of advice “You have to be all in or all out”. It wasn’t about being reckless and quitting jobs or leaving people it was about committing to this journey you start because if you have a back plan you won’t see it through when it gets tough.
I have always had a vision of what The Phoenix Experience was going to be and The Coaching Institute has really helped me bring that to life in more ways than I could have ever imagined. The amount of resources, mentors and support is incredible. Sharon Pearson’s advice of just follow the steps and you will become successful is true. Since the start I have just followed the steps and I now have paying clients. This journey is different for everyone, I am realistic about it and I still work 3 days a week to supplement my income but in six months I will have enough clients to do this fulltime.
The Phoenix Experience is growing weekly as I build my skills and confidence from my learning’s at The Coaching Institute. My social media presence continues to grow and so does my brand. I was recently interviewed on the U.S podcast Elevating Beyond that is focused on changing lives.
More important than the success you get at The Coaching Institute is the person you become as a result of this journey. I have become more connected with my family, more aware and a better more compassionate person.
It’s a pretty cool job to help people reconnect and have the belief to achieve their vision of the future.
