What has this done for your lifestyle?
I am very happy with it—I have quite a lot of balance. I work very hard, I still put a lot of effort in, my business is growing and more and more people want to work with me. I always have family as my No 1 value because I want to be not just a mum but also a good role model for my children. I have been pretty disciplined with myself, I always take care of myself first, my diet, meditation, everything, and I love to read and gain knowledge. I work seven days a week, I don’t mind because this is my passion at the same time. When I do business, I do it in a way that puts no pressure on me. I just want to do something I enjoy. I still have goals but it’s not something that will lead me to feel burned out.
Where are you at with your business?
I have 15 paying clients for my six month program, I charge around $3000, and I also do a lot of online group mentoring. My specialty area is digital marketing. During COVID I have had to put people on the waiting list so I am coming out with online courses in November.
My business is called The EQ Biz Academy. I love the concept of EQ. I have my own framework, and all my programs will always begin with emotional intelligence and learning about emotional resilience because I help female entrepreneurs. I believe as a female we must be good in managing our emotions. We need to balance out our life—business is part of it, but we also have families, children, parents, hobbies, so we don’t need to be competitive or push ourselves to the extent that we burn out. Ask yourself your big why: what do you want to do to make you happy?
What challenged or surprised you most about TCI?
Something which is fun I learned from Sharon Pearson: it’s okay to make mistakes.
What was the big turning point or milestone with your coaching journey?
I allow myself to be me. That is such a beautiful thing because before that I am too ashamed to go out and be authentic me, but the moment I accepted I am unique that process helped me a lot in terms of my confidence levels. So many people ask, what is the secret? Look at me ten years ago. I failed so many times. You have to allow yourself to fail many times to become confident.
Your best marketing strategy?
Social media and content creation. I did it myself. If you look at my content my strategy is not about me focus, it’s about you focus.
Advice for other TCI coaches?
No 1: keep learning. No 2: you must apply. No 3: you have to teach to other people because the moment when you learn, you apply, you teach, you are going to learn more and then also it will help in terms of your credibility as a professional coach. When you coach based on what you learn and apply, that is where you are going to leverage and increase your level of authority and credibility.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I am going to talk in front of ten thousand people, I will be one of the best speakers known for inspiring women.
