And then the market crashed in 2008. I spent 2009 and 2010 reeling and flailing from the fallout of the crash. I was tossing about with very little direction. I was replaying the last 3 years in my head and beating myself up for the mistakes I made. How could I have done things differently?
I realized my biggest mistake was that I had very few mentors and I had been isolated as I grew my business. I started to listen more and was determined to change that aspect of my life. With that focus, I started to attract mentors. In fact, I stopped into the office of one of my early mentors and he handed me a ticket to a seminar. “I think this is meant for you”, he said.
That leadership seminar turned into a few more seminars and then eventually into hiring my first coach. Like many of you reading this now, I knew I needed more insight and accountability to make break-throughs in my life. Over this time, I opened real estate brokerages, managed a private fund, wrote curriculum for a non-profit, was president of youth football program, coached several sports teams and started my business + life strategy coaching practice. Oh, and we had kid number 4! And remember that little pain I mentioned earlier? I am more present than ever.
If you think it is the right time to seek out a coach to help with your business + life strategy I encourage you to sign up for a free consult with me today.
