Q: How were you inspired to start your business?
I was laid off in my early 60’s and after sending out numerous (well over 75) resumes with no response, I remembered running across someone’s website who was a Virtual Assistant and was training others in the field. With my background in business and admin work, I thought this would be great, contacted her and went through her training and set up my first online business: A VA/Business Consultancy. After doing it for several years, I realized I wasn’t fond of the admin work and that women were asking me for guidance and support. The light bulb went off. I realized throughout my corporate career as a manager, I spent most of my days coaching my staff and I loved it. It’s so much fun to help others put together the jigsaw pieces of their life/business. So for the last several years I have been slowing putting together my coaching business.
Q: How much do you love what you do?
200% I love it, as I mentioned helping other put the pieces together is amazing and fun!
Q: If you could go back to a point in your life when you were facing a challenge, what inspirational advice would you give yourself?
I know it’s hard, in fact it hurts and it sucks but when you embrace your challenges and not hide from them, they turn into beautiful gifts. So don’t run from them, look for the message with in them.
