In this episode, we’re going to chat about what we as business owners, coaches, and entrepreneurs need to be doing to most effectively get our brands and mission out to the people who need it the most. Oftentimes, as we’re starting to build our businesses and push out our products or services to our target audience, if it’s not landing or resonating, we think there’s something wrong it so we start to rework it and retool it to put it out again; but then it still doesn’t land. Instead, it could be within ourselves that we are finding the solutions for these issues.

I get to chat with my friend, Chris Goodman, the coach who helps other business owners unpack what it is that we are stuck with in order to move forward more effectively in our business. Chris and I met several years ago at a mastermind session. Every time we had a breakout session, I tended to gravitate towards whatever Chris was saying because it had so much weight and power that I could implement in my own business.

“Focus on yourself, experience great coaching as a coaching client, and don’t start taking clients until you’ve made real strides and transformations in your own life and business.”
