There are so many ways I support women achieve success in business. The majority of the work I complete falls into one of these three areas. But more often than not, includes all three.
Where do you want to go and what do you want to achieve? These are huge questions and can be overwhelming. So, I listen. I listen to where you are and where YOU want to get to. I help you get clarity on what it is that you want from your business – what is its purpose and what’s YOUR why? Without the destination how will you know you’ve arrived (success) and without your roadmap, how will you know how to get there?
I’ll help you get clear on your vision, your mission, your values and your aims for your business. I’ll also listen out for outdated messages that may be holding you back, help you remove any obstacles that may be getting in the way and to ensure that you have the confidence and self-belief to achieve your goals.
Then, it’s time to get down to business. Establish and set your goals. Goals that you want to make yourself accountable to. Goals that are motivating. Goals that will become ingrained in your business practices and that allows reviews and refinement to take place so that growth and success is measured. This includes the numbers and business performance, but also other softer metrics that are personal to you and that you measure success by.
Once you have your goal and your business vision, now it’s all about how you’re going to achieve those goals. What strategies, plans and tactics are you going to put in place? What knowledge, skills and competencies do you already have (or you’ve forgotten about) and which ones do you need gain (or recruit) to accelerate you and your business?
This element often starts with business planning. This can include a detailed business plan (perhaps to secure funding) or it may be a one page plan to support your vision and keep you focused. Once you’ve decided on your business plan how are you going to make your goals and your actions realistic? Which ones are taking priority and which ones do you need additional help and support or can you outsource? And quite often, which ones do you want to achieve but for one reason or another you’re shying away from?
I help create the structure and the strategies. And when it comes to implementation I have a network of experts who can help you out – marketers, social media managers, photographers, accountants, financial advisors, product developers, and collaborators.
Being a business owner can be a very exciting time, it can be very empowering with many wonderful benefits. It can also be daunting, overwhelming, confusing, and lonely. I know, I’ve been there – and this is one of the very reasons I set up Thrive Coaching!
A fundamental benefit that every client I work with is on accountability. Being your own boss has it benefits – but often deadlines are not set and important tasks are kept in the “too difficult box”. I work to understand what may be getting in the way of achievement and guiding clients to find realistic solutions. How many times have you said “I’ll do it tomorrow”. Sometimes, tomorrow never comes. By keeping yourself accountable you’ll focus on the areas that you’re going to get greatest return. I do this by working with clients on deadlines, exploring the importance of tasks and how they fit into creating the business you want with the results you want. Keeping you motivated and making sure you have the support to achieve the very best success. Making you feel empowered.
