Encore Entrepreneur Coaching and Consulting
“Do the Work You Love and Learn to Love the Work You Have to Do.”
As an encore entrepreneur you have already discovered a passion for a service or product that you will offer in your business. But are you stuck in moving forward in getting that business off the ground and successful? Does technology and social media marketing overwhelm you? Do you just not know where to start with networking and promoting your product or service? Are you looking for someone to support you and give you some direction? I understand how you feel! I have been there and at times I still feel that way. Coaching has help me through the process and I have learned so much along the way. I have also seen many other encore entrepreneurs in that same stuck place. My passion is to be your coach and consultant to help support you in your journey. I will help you find the best way for you and your business through the process and I can advise you on some of the things I have learned around social media marketing, branding, networking and getting your voice heard.
It is quite evident that when learning a new skill the same things we are blocked by in our day to day lives are mirrored in our struggles with the new skill. The examples are endless. Performance coaches, life coaches, career coaches, teachers, trainers and bosses at work and anyone else with a teaching role all would benefit from learning and using core coaching skills and techniques. The fabric of our lives is woven like a fine tapestry where everything is interconnected. People can gain self-awareness and have perspective shifts when trying to learn and improve a new skill. They can then take this new awareness and apply it in other areas of their lives. My love for life and career coaching has grown organically from my career as an equestrian coach and trainer. As I have opened my mind and awareness through the years and shifted many perspectives in my life, I have become a better coach. I want to share my passion for self- growth and awareness with my clients. It is a wonderful opportunity to both support someone in learning new skills and techniques needed to become a successful encore entrepreneur and also partner with them in in their life journey. I now look not only at a client’s skills but I also listen closely to what they say and how they express themselves. I have, through the years, improved my emotional intelligence. It has helped me become a better equestrian coach, teacher, life and career coach and self. Daniel Goleman explains that, “If you’re a coach, you’ve got to engage the person, get them enthused about achieving the goal of change. Here it helps to draw on their dreams, their vision for themselves, where they want to be in the future. Then work from where they are now on what they might improve to help them get where they want to go in life.”
“In life” can mean any part of life. It can be when working with someone learning any skill or changing any habit whether it is in day to day life, school work or in some sport or leisure activity. Coaching in any part of someone’s life can help them in the whole of their lives. As coaches we have the opportunity to help clients shift their perspectives. Since all parts of our lives are so connected each time a shift occurs the client brings that new mindset with them in everything they do. Each time this happens the world becomes a little bit better place.
A variety of coaching choices are offered:
One on one coaching calls by phone or Skype: Contact me for a packing and price lists.
Group coaching calls by phone or Skype: This choice can make coaching and consulting more affordable if you have a tight budget. These groups will be offered on a regular basis with a specific start and end date. If you know a group of entrepreneurs who would like to take advantage of this let me know and I can create a group session just for you. Contact me to set up a group or check my courses page to see when the next group session will start.
The advantage of group sessions is the collaboration and support of the group to help each individual move towards change. Great ideas come from group members and it is nice to know you are not alone in your desire for change. You get to know like-minded people. Please contact me with any ideas for group topics and interest. I want to design the groups in the best way for you. Group pricing also make coaching available to a larger audience. I am excited to begin with group sessions.
I will be organizing group sessions soon in the Syracuse, NY area. Check back for more information. Group phone/Skype sessions are also being developed. This will remove any geographic barriers.
Group workshops: I will periodically offer group in person workshops. If you would like me to come to your group to do a workshop contact me and I can tailor it to your needs. Or, look on the courses page to see when a workshop is being help.
Talks/speaking opportunities: Contact me if you would like me to come speak for your group or organization. I offer talks that can be tailored to your needs. My speaker sheet that can be downloaded as a PDF can be found on my courses page.
