I started my pro-bono coaching in January
The response from the clients was very positive and since then I have competed close to over 30 hours of coaching. The triads with fellow coaches and the amazing mentors provided by TCI have been an invaluable learning experience. I started taking small steps to start my business in January while continuing to work full-time, travel and study for my diploma as well as Masters in Business Leadership. I finally took the big step of committing full-time to my coaching business “Amalfi Coaching”, in April this year. The name of the business reflects my goal to live in Italy for longer than a couple of weeks and enjoy the beauty of the Amalfi Coast while coaching clients.
Since then there have been a number of firsts. My first paying client on a recommendation from a fellow student; my first workshop with another fellow coach – not many participants yet the feedback of the value we had provided was worth 100 participants; my first networking meeting where I spoke proudly about my new venture.
While working in the business has now become my full-time role I am also stepping out of my comfort zone in so many ways as I work on my business. This has been my biggest challenge. Following the steps and advice outlined by Sharon and Joe has helped me to stay focused. Setting goals-some, big hairy audacious ones and some not so big as well as continuing to just “do it” whether I feel like it or not have been critical in getting results. I have also applied much of what I have learned to all other aspects of my life including health and relationships.
