Motherhood to Career Coaching Success

2/2/2024
The image might paint a picture of success: traveling for work, commuting to prestigious cities, climbing the corporate ladder. But behind the suits and government consulting facade, I was drowning in stress, unhappiness, and burnout. Here's a little origin story of Classy Career Girl. The Struggle Within: Miscarriages chipped away at my hope, and the pressure to conform took its toll. I was overweight, unhealthy, and desperately seeking something more. The corporate world had squeezed the life out of me. A Leap of Faith: Deciding to prioritize my well-being and happiness was scary. I put motherhood aside (temporarily!), committed to getting healthy, and chased a burning vision. Nights and weekends were spent pouring myself into my blog, building a course, and dreaming of a different future. From Part-Time Hustle to Thriving Business: Going part-time in the corporate world felt risky, but it opened space for new possibilities. Event hosting, network talks, and 1-on-1 coaching sessions started popping up. The monthly revenue, initially a trickle, slowly grew into a steady stream. This Wasn't Just About Money: It wasn't just about financial success. I was building a community, connecting with people, and sharing my passion. Every webinar, every coaching session, was a tiny victory, a step towards the life I envisioned. Finding Balance: My journey wasn't always smooth. There were bumps, doubts, and moments of uncertainty. But the key was learning to find balance. Balancing my growing business with the joys of motherhood, carving out time for self-care, and embracing flexibility became my mantra. My Message to You: If you're feeling stuck, unhappy, or burnt out, know that change is possible. It might not be easy, but with courage, commitment, and a willingness to step outside your comfort zone, you can create a life that nourishes your soul and sparks joy. My journey from the corporate ladder to career coaching and motherhood taught me that the most valuable pursuit is not defined by titles or external validation, but by the pursuit of happiness and fulfillment on your own terms.

Beyond Logos: Crafting a Brand That Speaks To Your Coaching Clients

1/18/2024
Branding is not about logos, fonts, and colors When it comes to branding, many coaches get bogged down in the details of design. They focus on creating a visually appealing brand that might look great on paper, but doesn't actually connect with their target audience. The truth is, branding is more about messaging than it is about aesthetics. It's about how you make your clients feel when they interact with you, whether it's through your social media posts, your website, or your sales calls.

3 Essential Steps to Kickstart Your Career Coaching Business in 2024

1/5/2024
In this episode, we'll be discussing three essential steps to kickstart your career coaching business in 2024. Step 1: Define Your Vision The first step to starting a successful coaching business is to define your vision. What do you want to create in the future? What does your life look like when you reach your goals? What do you want to make by the end of the year? And how many people do you want to impact? Once you have a clear vision, you can start to develop your mission statement. This is a concise statement that outlines your purpose and goals for your business. Step 2: Craft Your Action Plan Now that you have a vision and mission statement, it's time to start planning how you're going to achieve your goals. This involves creating an action plan that outlines your specific steps and timelines. Your action plan should include metrics that you'll use to track your progress. For example, you might want to track the number of sales calls you make each month, the number of sales you make each month, and the number of content pieces you produce each month. Step 3: Embrace Adaptability and Growth with your calendar As a career coach, you need to be flexible and adaptable in order to succeed. The coaching industry is constantly evolving, so it's important to be prepared to change your plans as needed. This also means that you need to have a growth mindset. This is the belief that you can learn and grow throughout your life. One way to embrace adaptivity is to focus on your priorities. Don't try to do everything at once. Instead, focus on one thing per 90 days. This will allow you to focus on the most important tasks and achieve your goals. Call to Action: If you're ready to kickstart your career coaching business in 2024, take action today. Start by defining your vision and mission, crafting an action plan, and embracing adaptivity.
