If you’re starting or growing your business, then you may already be thinking about all of the hard work ahead of you. It can feel a little daunting. And, when you take a step back and think about the rest of your life, you might wonder where all that work is going to fit.
Here’s the thing. Each of us has limited time on this earth. And, since that’s too big to contemplate or make actionable. On a weekly basis, we each have 168 hours available to us. But, not really. When you factor in things like sleeping, eating, family, chores, errands, jobs or full-time parenting, and other basic aspects of daily life, we’re left with about 20 hours or less to do with as we please.
So, when you think about adding a business or a side hustle to the mix, it’s likely to be within those 20 hours. If you’re growing an existing business, it’s likely here too because you’ve still got to keep the existing business afloat.
20 hours each week breaks down to about 2-3 hours a day. And, it’s probably nonconsecutive time – meaning that based on your busy schedule, it might be 30 minutes here and 30 minutes there.
So, how do you make the most of that time? How do you get started, make meaningful progress, set and achieve challenging goals, hold yourself accountable, and thoughtfully design a new chapter of your life? Well, that’s where a business coach can be extremely helpful.
What is coaching?
The most important thing you need to know is that you are already creative, capable, and whole. In fact, you’ve got everything you need to be successful. Coaching is about helping you to maximize that success.
Here’s how the International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines it: “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” In other words, coaching is about empowering you to become the best version of yourself.
As a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), it’s my job to create a safe space for self-exploration, helping you see your challenges from new perspectives. How important would it be to you to get your ideas off the ground and actually turn your ideas into action? Check out this info-graphic to learn more about what we’ll achieve together.
Coaching is a two-way street. It’s a creative collaboration. If you’re committed to your growth…if you’re engaged and ready to not just survive, but thrive…if you’re committed to taking action and achieving your goals, then you’re an ideal candidate for coaching.
What is business development coaching?
Most coaches serve a specific group of clients. I’m a strategy and business development coach, which means I choose to focus exclusively on clients who are starting or growing their businesses.

Starting and growing a business is not a straightforward and linear process. It can feel messy. It zigs and zags. It starts and stops. It can feel frustrating even for the most seasoned business owners. And, that’s ok. It’s also an exciting challenge. It’s going to stretch you. You’re going to learn a lot – not just about business, but about yourself. And, that’s why it’s worth it.
