Why would I go to all the trouble to create this site, business concept, membership community, training programs, and all of the ready made turn-key products which took me years of my life to create?
Because there was no one out there that was offering the kind of products and information I NEEDED for my own counseling and coaching business!
As a mother of four (Nick, Alex, Max and Sophie – my amazing children) I was working nights at a Denver hospital and trying to start my own business during the day.
A partner and I started a Wellness Center and I worked part time using the coaching, hypnosis and NLP skills I learned back in 1995. The practice was doing well but I was working four nights a week at the hospital then 3-4 days a week conducting client sessions at the center.
Working 70-80 hours per week, with two babies under three, two teenagers, and two jobs… I was just surviving; which is what most of us end up doing.
I had always known what my passion was – I wanted to help people see their possibilities and transform their lives!
So I began, after a couple of years of this schedule, to try and find a system of doing business that would be successful enough, quickly enough for me to leave my night job.
Sound like something you want, too?
I got serious; researched everywhere to see all the pre-made, ready to go counseling products that I could just convert to use in my business.
There were a few premade workshops that I could buy for thousands of dollars, some outdated books, a weight loss coaching franchise that was around $8,000 and intense credit scrutiny to join, and tons of amateur CD hypnosis sessions that I could copy and sell in my business (with the author’s business information on it)…
It was shocking to find out there was nothing really designed to help complementary counselors and coaches. I would have to create all my session formats, business systems, client forms, CD’s, ad’s… everything myself.
Now, I am not complaining – everyone who starts a private practice has to create their business from scratch, but were there no leaders or mentors who could show me the way?
Was there a community that would give me business support, session advice, networking contacts, and provide products (for a reasonable fee mind you… I’ve got four children, remember!) that I could convert to use in my business immediately?
Then I knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this was the ‘need’ I wanted to fill – I would share everything I know about creating the ideal business and life!
And, I would make sure it was available, not for thousands of dollars, but for a fair and reasonable price so that everyone could immediately afford to grow a private practice that provided them with executive income (and personal freedom!).
YOU are the person I created all these systems for!
