I've been a business "solopreneur" for almost a decade, and through the years, as my business has survived the recession + grown, and also with life's changes, my personal goals have changed and my business vision has shifted.
In my 8th year in business, I engaged Clearways Coaching services in order to gain clarity and direction in hiring help, and delegating more so that I could focus on business operations and sales. I was burned out and emotionally exhausted from doing it all on my own for so many years, and had trouble seeing how I would be able to make (what felt like) huge changes and see results in a relatively short amount of time.
Since that time, David Merino and I have been working together on a bi-weekly basis, and in each session, he starts by asking me to recall my "wins" from the previous week, and determine my agenda for the session. David asks key questions to get me thinking about where I want to put my energy in the coming week, and which resources I'll call upon for help and/or making progress. When I've gotten overwhelmed or blocked, David patiently asks an open question to get me moving again. By creating short term goals and attainable action steps that I can chip away at through the work-week, I'm able to chart small successes along the way and be mindful of my accomplishments, which further spurs me on to the next goal.
David's coaching technique has been vital to the growth of my business because I've been able to tap into my power and motivation to try new methods + be intentional about carving my path. If it's not working, we adjust and redirect.
I'm proud to say that through working with David, I've faced many fears and pushed my personal + business boundaries. Since 2013, I've contracted an employee to handle social media, blog-writing and project management; created/fine-tuned systems + protocols around sales and new client relationships; and analyzed marketing + sales strategies.
If you're clear that you are ready for change, and you're committed to taking action, I highly recommend working with David Merino of Clearways Coaching.
