What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We start with a no obligation introductory strategy session to discover what the blocks are and what the goals are. We spend the time to get crystal clear about those areas and see if it's a good fit.
Once that is determined, then we can discuss program options to help reach those goals.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm a certified:
Trainer of NLP
Master Practitioner of Hypnotherapy
Master Practitioner of Mental and Emotional Release Therapy
Business Management from UCLA (degree)
I'm constantly educating myself. I have a dedicated annual budget of about $25,000 just for personal and business development for myself.
I also believe the best coaches have their own coaches to stay on top of their game. I have a team of coaches that I work with on a regular basis in all areas of my own life.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My own journey in life...and seeing others struggle in a way that was familiar to me.
One the biggest moments was when I decided NOT to help a family member in a way that I wanted to, or rather in the way that I can now...now that family member is no longer with us.
I believe that was really what kicked me into high gear to take the necessary steps and training to follow my purpose.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've worked with students, executives, small business owners, other coaches and consultants, couples, military vets (PTSD), and entrepreneurs that are struggling with money anxiety.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Take the time to get clear with what is it that you truly want. Often times, people can get caught up in the "process" of what a provider does. Focus on the results and what the provider can ultimately give you. If that is in line with what you want, then that is what I believe is one of the most important thing to consider. Also, make sure that the coach you are considering, also has a coach of his/her own.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
We take out the trash weekly...We go to the bathroom daily...what we often forget to take out is the most importantly trash of all..."mental trash".
When everything we do starts with a thought and a belief, what happens if we have belief systems that don't support us?
The ripple effects of not taking care of those mental and mindset systems are tremendous.
Part of my mission and vision is to help people understand more of how much "mental trash" effects every part of their lives.
