How did you feel at the start of your journey with TCI?
"It was definitely eye opening to see there are so many models and frames I didn't know. I thought I knew a fair bit ... I was like a kid in a candy store. It was very exciting."
What challenged and surprised you most?
How much shit I have to process. This is part and parcel of human potential, they're one and the same. My goodness, the depth of layers we can let go of and concurrently then move into.
What are you doing now as a coach?
I put three years into a product, worked my ass off, and it flopped in the sense that I wasn't able to monetise but it did open up doors, was featured on TV, all great stuff for my profile. In that process I learned something about my ideal client so I then pitched to a room around speaker training and did 40K in one day. The distinction was they wanted hard skills—speaking, facilitating. That was the big awakening: just find people who really resonate with you. As I found that niche, the revenue has opened up.
I would call myself a speaker trainer, but it's highly coaching based. I run webinar events with one of my long term clients, I mentored him for a year and it was an easy match. At the moment we have 20 clients at 5K each.
What has been your biggest milestone?
I’ve been with my partner now for five years. Three years into it there was this soul-to-soul telepathic moment where she looked at me and all this pain came out of her being. What she was communicating to me was, 'Are you there for me? Will you hold the space for me?' It was such a deep, profound moment. Those moments when they happen change things completely. My highest value is human potential so to have those transcendental experiences is amazing.
