Before starting I Heart Coaching my business was all over the place, I was doing my best to make things work but didn’t really know what I was doing and felt like I was winging it.
My income was so inconsistent and I was even thinking about going back to get a restaurant job because I wasn’t bringing in regular money. Some weeks would be good and others I’d bring in less than $400, it was frustrating.
I had no support networks around me, other than my partner who is amazing, but no group of women on the same journey, so I found it hard sometimes as though I was going it alone.
I was very frustrated with myself and my business, I felt lost and had no idea how to market, build a tribe and bring in clients consistently. I didn’t even really know what my message and vision was.
I was desperate to build a thriving business, one I was proud of, that I could share with my friends and family and feel a sense of achievement, but the reality was I would shy away from any conversation about my business as I was embarrassed of how it was going.
STARTING HER BUSINESS
I originally started my business 4 years ago but it was all face to face from a health centre and I had no exact target audience.
I had a lot of limiting beliefs and fears standing in my way and also the money worry hanging over me that was actually stopping me moving forward and creating the successful business I dreamed of.
For me the fear of failing, or not being good enough was a huge thing I overcame and I also learned that fear is actually your friend, it’s there to push you and make you work for the success you desire and to show you what’s possible.
INVESTING IN HER DREAMS
I definitely felt some resistance to signing up to IHC. I initially wanted to sign up for the previous round, but I put it off. The money worry was too much for me then, so decided to just keep doing what I was doing, which as you can imagine worked out well! Ha! So when the next round opened I jumped on board, I made the decision to act on my dreams.
I chose the monthly instalment option, saved for the first payment and made it non negotiable that the money would come in every month. Beginning the program with money mindset work made the world of difference for this.
I definitely felt nervous but the minute I signed up I almost felt a sense of relief as though I was exactly where I was supposed to be.
RESULTS SHE’S ACHIEVED SINCE STARTING THE PROGRAM
I’ve loved every minute of IHC and have achieved so much. In just the last few months I’ve signed 12 new clients, had my first $8k month and have a brand new website and business that’s about to launch, and I’m super proud of it.
I have a one to one program and am currently working on a group program that I aim to launch this year. I have systems and structures set up that allow me to build my list, market easily and attract new clients.
I have money mindset skills that will last me a life time and I have the best network of women around me that I could ever wish for. There is no way I’m going back to a restaurant job now, and I know that this is just the beginning for me!
REACHING HER GOALS
I would say that being consistent and regularly showing up is the key to a lot of my success. I was all over the place before but now I have a schedule, I stick to it and I show up for my following and my clients and I’m being the women I’ve always dreamed of being.
I’ve also done a lot of work on me, dedicating time to work on my mindset, to focus on my goals, to journal, to read my intentions. Every morning I sit in front of my vision board and I meditate and I connect with my goals and I read all the positive quotes I’ve collected and I tune into what I’m here to do. I know that working on me and my mindset is even more important than systems and structures so this is what I do first every day. This has definitely helped me achieve the results I have so far.
In terms of the IHC program, definitely showing up, making connections, being present and getting stuck in elevated my success. And to be honest, just going for it!
If you’re anything like I was, all over the place, in a panic, unsure of how to get things off the ground, just follow your heart, follow your dreams and you’ll know what to do. If you’re here reading this I can guess it’s because you’re thinking about working with Emily and all I can say is DO IT! Don’t do what I did and leave it a year before signing up and regretting it, just go for it, you will love it.
Taking the leap of faith and investing in myself was a huge step for me but it has been absolutely worth it and I am so happy and grateful I did. If you join IHC and you follow the process you will build the business you’re dreaming of!
I’m so proud of the business I’m building and am know that this is just the beginning.
