Entrepreneurs are essentially visualizers and actualizers.
They can visualize something, and when they visualize it, they see exactly how to make it happen. — Robert L. Schwartz

Transforming Yourself into an Entrepreneur
When you decide to grow a business, it’s not just about creating a new income stream. Choosing to become an entrepreneur means you are embarking on a “hero’s journey.” You are stepping off a conventional career path and forging your own new one..You are creating a new identity for yourself. You are no longer just someone’s employee: you are now your own boss—with all the freedom and challenges that this new role entails. In that transition, you will be tested and transformed.

Coaching is a process of powerful self inquiry. In 1-1 coaching sessions and mastermind groups, you can discover your own answers to these questions: What inspires you to risk investing in yourself so you can create something new and valuable in the world? How do you hold fast to your vision and sustain that inspiration? What values energize your efforts? What knowledge and strengths do you bring to your business building and how can you deploy them effectively? How do your beliefs about money and wealth influence your business goals, and your ability to get and stay motivated? How do you care for yourself, your family, and your coworkers so that you have the energy, support and resources you need to realize your vision?.
