A 90 Day Business Launch client who really should have been a 90 Day Biz Re-Launch client, Kristy Leader initially came to me with some bones of her business in place. But after working together this past fall, she had a full-fledged one complete with 2 official offers, a detailed marketing plan, and an A+ website for her company, Education for Progress. The work she does is so important – working with schools, organizations and families to offer practical steps to promote equity for all children – that my heart is extra big today, knowing she’s making such a big (and needed!) dent in the world. You’re gonna love this remarkable woman and heart-based business owner who is so successful that – within a month of her launch – she was hired for not only the paid speaking jobs, but for ongoing consulting work, too. Music to my ears!
Why did you decide to work with me?
You came highly recommended from a friend that I trust. I knew that I needed support in getting my business off the ground and appreciated an actual first hand recommendation instead of trying to chose someone from the internet.
What were you doing work-wise when we started working together – and what are you doing now?
I was in the process of leaving my full time job. I had all of the ideas in place to start my business but NO IDEA how to get it off the ground. I had a business name and a very basic website. And not much of a plan on how to move forward.
Since my business launch, I have been invited to do many trainings and lectures at local schools and organizations in the areas of equity, social justice, inclusion and anti-bias curriculum. I have been asked to speak on panels and guest speak in college classrooms. It has been amazing to see how quickly this work took off, and I am just honored to be able to use my voice and experience to make a positive impact for children.
What was your biggest takeaway from our work together?
The biggest takeaway was that I COULD actually do this! That it wasn’t a crazy idea! I trusted your vision and experience and your faith in my business idea, as a professional. It really gave me the confidence to keep going.
Think of someone who is currently in the shoes you wore when we first started working together. What advice do you have for her?
You can do it!!!! Your dream business CAN become your reality, but you need support and a plan!
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!
Creating a great website was big for me. I needed a “landing page” for my business that I could refer potential clients to. I think that making sure that the website really captures the work that I do is critical.
What’s on the horizon for your business? We’d love to hear about any upcoming offerings or goals!
I hope to continue to make a positive impact in education and in the area of educational equity for students through working with schools, teachers, leaders and organizations. It is critical work that I hold closely to my heart.
