What has TCI given you?
My self worth has been located. I’m surrounded by the most magnificent people in a community of thinkers and givers. I am loving my life.
Where are you at on your TCI journey?
I’m in Pro Coach, am close to finishing. I don’t want to stop the journey. I’ve oved heaven and Earth to be available for Meta I and II and the ICG summit as a team member, be immersed in it.
What have you struggled with?
Vulnerability is the thing I have the biggest hassle with.
Tell us the secret to your success.
Putting other people first and trying to help them get what they want, and to focus on that to the best of my skill and ability because ultimately all things will be returned. I get asked all the time: get used to 100 hours a week, be challenged, study like a moron then don’t eat for two days. This thing is hard work. The call to excellence from TCI, I am completely sold on that.
Where are you at with your business?
I have six clients who fit into what you would call leadership on a retainer scenario. At any given time we have four business or corporate clients. During COVID, moving the business [online] was much easier than I thought it was going to be, so all the excuses I had about being somewhat technophobic were all BS.”
In what ways did TCI live up to or exceed your expectations?
Oh my God, they have never ever let me down. I am here to tell you, every interaction with TCI has been of a quality and consistency that makes you think I did something good, I’m actually dead, I’m in Elysium and the sun is shining on my face.
Signing my first 100K a year client. I needed it to happen and it was a referral as most of my work is, we had a coffee and he said ‘This is what I want to do’ and my brain exploded—‘Have I got what it takes?
Your most successful marketing strategy?
I am a hunter. I have mastered the opportunity to work very deeply in my niche, which is telco and finance, principally because I speak their language and understand their problems. I never move out of my market. Master your market!
What do you know about yourself that you didn’t before TCI?
Advice for other fabulous TCI coaches?
Read all the manuals! When I mentor I only mentor a coach who demonstrates to me they have game and are prepared to do the yakka. I make them do things they don’t want to, like sixty cold calls a week.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
If I do everything I believe mentors have asked—Sharon’s advice about buckets, commitment to being an elite level learner—in five years if I am not a world class speaker having written a few books there’s something wrong.
Which three things can you not live without?
The love and connection I have developed on the journey. The community. The challenge of wanting to do better. I really want to be excellent at this and I know I’m not yet.
