More and more people are looking to run their own business and escape the corporate hamster wheel. The opportunity to do something you enjoy, and be your own boss, is incredibly appealing. I myself made that life-changing big leap a few years back and I can honestly say it was the best thing I ever did.
However making this dream a reality is easier said than done and lots of people find themselves struggling with suddenly being their own brand manager, marketing and comms manager, finance director, strategic planner and project manager. The steps to create a brand from scratch, a website, to make money and so on, are daunting and many people give up.
On top of this there’s the pressure to take better photos and hone your skills as a photographer. After all this is the product people are buying from you!
This is where 1-2-1 coaching with D E V E L O P comes in!
what is 1-2-1 coaching?
1-2-1 coaching is as the name suggests – your very own teacher, supporter and mentor – there to give you hands on practical advice in the areas you need help with.
You in affect get access to all I’ve learnt across my two careers to date.
Whether you’re struggling with working out your marketing, getting bookings or creatively not progressing, coaching can be the rocket fuel you need to overcome these hurdles.
I am a big advocate of 1-2-1 coaching as it’s personal. I want to get to know you and your business and to make a difference.
If you choose to continue with regular Skype sessions you position yourself to continue to receive expertise in the areas you need it most and you have some accountability – which when working alone can be hugely beneficial.
Having an external pair of eyes on your business can be hugely powerful.
Coaching is an investment in to you and your business, that be the break through you needed.
how does it work?
We initially have a phone/Skype chat for 30 minutes for me to learn more about you and where you’re at. This will help identify where coaching can help you. These kick-off calls are often fairly therapeutic as you can get everything off your chest!
This will help identify you which of the areas we’ll focus on (all options below).
I’ll then draw up a plan for what we’ll cover in our 1-2-1 day session and we’ll make plans for that to happen.
You will come away from a day’s session with me inspired, excited and probably a little overwhelmed! (That’s a good sign though!)
After our day together I’ll send you a summary action plan and we’ll have a follow-up call a month later to check on your progress.
You can choose to continue your coaching with me as you wish. The longer we work together, the more I can help you reach your goals!
Coaching provides you with greater know-how, actionable plans, accountability and most of all lots and lots of encouragement!
