I'm an experienced business coach offering advice to others to help them excel in any industry. One thing about me is that I lead by example and use my experience to help others. As a dedicated entrepreneur, I know what it takes to start something from nothing and successfully take a business to the next level.
My journey in the life of an entrepreneur dates back to 1998, when I started my first business. By 2000, I was diving deep into the health and wellness industry, focusing on helping people improve their health by changing their daily routines for the better. Having spent over two decades in business, I've learned much along the way, experiencing my fair share of highs and lows.
While some may think the journey to success happened overnight, it didn't quite work out that way for me. I spent hours each day focusing on building my business. While the consistent effort would eventually pay off, that success didn't last forever. After some harrowing experiences in my personal life, I went from being at the top to sleeping on the couches and floors of friends willing to lend an ear and provide the emotional support needed during some tough times.
Some may let such failure deter them from trying again and returning to the business world, I didn't let that happen because I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. Knowing that I possess the mindset of a leader, I couldn't let my skills and experience go to waste by working for someone else, so I chose to keep pushing, motivating myself to get back to living the life of an entrepreneur. That dedication to overcoming the hard times would change my life for the better, enabling me to rebuild and start again from scratch.
Now, I want to prove to others that it's never too late to succeed. I use what I know from personal experience to provide the most helpful advice for entrepreneurs. When you want it bad enough, you will put the time and effort into making it happen. Realizing I had a natural talent for using my past failures and mistakes as stepping stones to reach my goals, I decided if I could help myself, I could certainly help others. I naturally think outside the box. I don't do well with a textbook response. And if someone tells me no, I refuse to believe it because I know I can somehow turn it into a yes. If there is one thing I've learned about myself during my entrepreneurial journey, it's that challenges inspire me to work even harder.
The journey to becoming an entrepreneur isn't usually an easy one, but it's so gratifying for those willing to put forth the effort and consistency. I've managed to see the fruits of my labors by growing businesses from the ground up. With my latest venture as a business coach, I look forward to motivating and empowering entrepreneurs from all walks of life. It's yet another experience to add to my incredible journey and one that has the potential to make a difference in the lives of many.
