Um, do you know that I’ve coached hundreds of women since I started offering dream career guidance in 2008? And that these women are freakin’ rock stars, leaving soul-sucking jobs and traveling the world and launching creative, grown-up businesses and simply doing work that fits their lifestyle goals? Well ya do now – and you’ll hear their stories firsthand in my Client Case Studies series! I’m here today with my first Part 2 of a Client Case Study and I couldn’t be more pleased! EB Sanders was first featured here last December (read it right here) and she became a Woman of the World (aka full-time entrepreneur) just a few weeks later. I’m so happy to have this current Build Your Client Base-er give you another peek into what her career coaching business looks like almost a full year into working on it full time. Goodness abounds!
When we last spoke, you were about to quit your day job to go all in as a career coach. Is your business the same as it was back then, or has anything evolved?
When we last spoke I was building the foundations of my business – now it is growing and evolving in all sorts of ways.
Let’s talk wins! What have you been most proud of in your business since we last featured you?
I have been most proud of being fully booked out with 1:1 clients! Hence the need to grow and evolve!
Have there been any long-term takeaways from our work together?
There have been. Long-term outlook is my long-term takeaway. While, yes, you need to be on top of this week’s marketing campaign, understanding how this week fits into your whole year of planning isn’t just a nice idea… it’s imperative.
What’s the best piece of advice you can give to someone transitioning from being a “newbie” business owner into a more seasoned or accomplished business owner?
The best advice I can give is to listen to other business owners BUT to do it your way. They’ve done a lot of the trial and error for you! Listen to their advice – really listen – and then implement it in a way that feels good for you. Their success won’t be your success if you try to copy everything they do – your success will come from being 100% you and doing things the way you feel good about.
Is there anything that’s been a game-changer for you when it comes to your business that you can share? We’d love a good resource or a mindset/productivity tip!
Game-changing tip? Get yourself a multi-tasking software. These days, for ~$25 a month you can get an accounting system, CRM, calendar, email marketing and more all wrapped up in one handy program. Basically – do more with less!
What’s on the horizon for your business? We’d love to hear about any upcoming offerings or goals!
Something I JUST launched is my small group coaching. I’m so incredibly excited about it because it allows women who may not be able to/ready for 1:1 coaching get some serious help from me along with a super small group of like-minded, supportive women who are going through really similar challenges.
I’m taking applications now and it goes live in January 2019 (I’m sorta pee-your-pants excited about it.)
Where can we find you and your work?
No-obligation applications are open now for Build Your Client Base, my 6-month mastermind that starts this January. Click here and get ready to make big strides in your biz in 2019, just like EB!
