Coaching For Busy Entrepreneurs Struggling To Get It All Done!
Coaching has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I love being a catalyst in the process of self-awareness and success. Because it was so hard to get started and sane as a mom entrepreneur, I learned many tricks that helped me put parts of my business on autopilot.
Why do I love working with professional moms? I happen to think they're the busiest, and most essential humans on earth right now. Since launching my business in 2008, I know the difficulties, pain and hardship that taking on a business while raising your family brings.
Many of us are in the 'Sandwich Generation' - working moms have become the peanut butter stuck between 2 slices of bread: our wonderful aging parents, and our growing, busy (yet exhausting at times) families. Add a spouse, a home, and a career into the mix and it's a wonder we're not all half-crazy!
I want you to know that although it's not easy... it is doable. You deserve a life you love... that works. But, juggling all the priorities takes a solid foundation, clarity, courage, support, guidance and freedom from the judgement and shame that the muggle world offers.
I can help you get it together, prioritize yourself, determine what direction to go in your business, create systems that make work easier, sell more, hone in your marketing, services and pricing, and still have time at the end of the day for whatever you like to do most.
Why Work With A Business Coach for Mompreneurs
At the risk of sounding sexist - I'll state that: Women are natural collaborators...
One of the hardest things to overcome as a mom entrepreneur is the feeling of isolation!
You are so busy dedicating your time and life to everyone else, that when it comes down to working on your business, you want to focus in, be productive and get things done... You also want to generate some decent income within the time you work. Let's face it, you are not going to pick up a side job at the local discount store.
You want to own your time, life and flexibility. You need to hold the reigns and make the decisions so you can make your life work! And, to avoid costly marketing blunders that most new entrepreneurs make, it is essential to align yourself with a mentor who can share expertise, lessons learned, and show you the shortcuts to getting profitable SOON with the time you're willing to devote to your business.
Let's face it - this mompreneur thing is tough - it's NOT for wimps.
If you are a mom entrepreneur who is painfully aware of a gap between where you are now and where you want to be, and where you are now, I invite you to close your eyes, take three deep breaths and feel a sense of calm.... just for a moment.
You've got this - and I can help. If you are you tired of doing the same things over with lack-luster results AND if you are willing to engage in a trusted partner who will spend time strategizing, planning, systematizing, and holding the space for you to make your way forward, you are ready to work with me as a mentor coach.
There is extreme value in working collaboratively with a small business coach who specializes in supporting mom entrepreneurs. A coach provides a supportive, action-oriented, step-by-step, engaged (on fire) environment that allows you to make the (sometimes subtle and drastic) changes you need to start making real money, or move your business in a different direction.
How Coaching Works
A coaching relationship is set up and driven by you. You will know when you need to engage in the thoughtful, problem-solving process, and when you are clear and in action. Engagements most often work best with set time commitments. Check out my most popular group coaching program for late start up here: Biz Marketing Makeover Group Coaching Program.
Now is an ideal time for you if you are:
- Willing and able to take action to change your current circumstances
- Unsure of a plan of action and what priorities should come first but open to options
- Overwhelmed with possibilities but stunted with inactivity and indecision
- Confused about what you need to accomplish and what is important
- Stuck and need to get in action and want to have someone to help you work through all of your ideas and plans
Business coaching is NOT recommended if you are:
- Unwilling and unable to take action to change your current circumstances
- Stuck in being right and being the expert at everything
- Resistant to the opinions and guidance of others
- More invested in staying victimized at where you are now than taking deliberate actions to change your situation
- Too financially strapped to see coaching as an investment in yourself and your business results
- Unwilling to accept responsibility for yourself and the actions you take

Structured Programs Vs. Live Coaching
People prefer different types of coaching methods. Some people benefit greatly from the power of a group, while others may feel that groups do not offer the type of attention they desire to meet their own goals.
I offer both structured programs (webinars, live classes and self-study) and open format live coaching for my continuity clients. Open format coaching works well if you are working through life changes or personal transformation. You set the agenda per meeting, and create your own goals and homework. Programs (group or individual) work well if you are targeting a specific business goals, designing programs, or implementing projects.
Though open format live coaching is exactly that - live for each session, my ideal clients typically follow a structured path. The clients below describe my typical ideal clients:
