Nathalie Gevinti - Credentialed Master Practitioner of Coaching Student
My Foundations of Coaching Success training weekend was in April 2013, a year ago exactly. I remember hearing many “zero to hero” stories and I was worried I hadn’t struggle enough to make it as a successful coach! This is when Joe Pane taught me my first lesson: “it takes a lot of courage to leave a place of comfort to go get more”. This still carries me today.
When I joined TCI I had a great job that paid pretty well, I had a great team and a great boss, but something was missing and it was becoming pretty painful to the point that I couldn’t concentrate on anything but finding the missing part.
A year later, after over 10 years in the corporate sector, I have my own business called Unlimited Mindset Solutions. It’s a leadership coaching practice designed to help businesses increase their profit by improving their staff productivity. At the moment I work with individuals on different areas of their lives.
Looking back I am amazed at what I have achieved during this year, including writing a book, having my first baby and submitting my assessments. I am really proud of all my achievements and to top it up I just got my first paying client.
At the moment I am on maternity leave from my “day job” until February 2015 and my goal is to not go back, so when my 7 weeks old son sleeps I work on my coaching, when he feeds I still work on my coaching, if it is in the middle of the night I update my LinkedIn on my phone. In the evening, I express milk so I can go to networking events. And I make sure I still rest and look after myself and my partner.
My aim is to create a business that will give me a lifestyle where I can be present for my children, where I can be a role model to them and make a difference in the world.
I got where I am today by following TCI learning, creating the right beliefs, taking actions and stop comparing myself to others because everybody’s journey is unique.
Everybody’s definition of success is different, so find yours and go get it.
