How My Entrepreneur Journey Started
I was extremely naive when I first stepped into my role as a business owner. I was involved within the IT industry in the public service, and really started to dislike my job.
I started to feel very sensitive, and most days would go home crying. However the one thing that kept me going, was my passion for Fitness and Health.
I had reached High Levels within my fitness and sport which I am very proud of
had gained Australian Championship titles in Marital Arts. Every day I would watch the clock and be ready to leave my job right on 5.00 pm. Yes I became the clock watcher. During this time I had a personal trainer, as most high performers have. He knew how unhappy I was, and one day he put a business proposition to me. He invited me to become a partner within his personal training business.
I was so excited that the next day I quit my job. Withdraw all of my savings and superannuation, gladly handing it all over to my business partner, just like a lamb being lead to slaughter. Yep, no contracts, simply trusting and absolutely no business sense at all.
I Became Resilient and Tapped into My Personal Power
Within six weeks as a partner and handing over my investment into the business of $100,000, my business partner said that he no longer wanted me as a partner, and that personally attacked me.
Now I had no job, no money, no clients and no family. I didn't have time to dwell on what had happened, I simply jumped into action and started to look at solving my existing problems.
I approached all the gyms nearby, back in 2001, you could train your clients in the local gyms. I set up my Personal Training Business and started to attract clients to me
I always knew that I would be okay. Yes I was fearful, but I didn't have time to dwell into my fears. I had to get a business up and running and was prepared to do whatever it took. When I trained my clients in the gym, I gave my all. I went well above what the other trainers were doing, and within a short term I had lots of clients coming to me.
No marketing required, they watched me training my clients, then approached me. However something was still missing. I was handed a brochure by one of my clients one day around personal development. What the hell was personal development, I thought. And this was transition into personal empowerment.
Business Pivot and Became Passionate about Personal Development
I was amazed at this world. Getting to know more about yourself. Understanding your blind spots, and overcoming my own limiting beliefs. I was so excited to learn more about me and how I ticked.
This is the point of my career that I transitioned from a personal trainer into a counselor than into a coach. I was compelled drawn into helping others to become better human beings.
Over the next 10 years I continued my studies with the Australian College of Applied Psychology, many coaching programs and supported woman in experiential workshops up in the mountains as a co-facilitator of a women's empowerment group.
I had personal coaching clients seeking me out to help them on a professional and personal level. I became well known around getting long term change in my clients. Not only did it help them in their daily lives, if also supported them in becoming better leaders at work.
There managers and CEO's of the organisations, started to notice the change. And this was the point that I was personally invited into working within the corporate arena.
Working with Leaders within Corporate
This is what being an entrepreneur is all about. You never know when opportunities will be presented to you, and when they do you seize them with enthusiasm . This is the time that my reputation as being a change maker started to take form.
I was getting the same results with all of my clients, and other organizations were reaching out to me to work with their leaders and teams.
During the GFC ( Global financial Crisis) things started to changed for me.
A lot of my corporate clients were starting to go in-house with their coaching and training, due to the financial restrictions. This became the time that I realized that I had no clue in how to market myself. For the first 15 years of my business, it was all referrals and now things were changing. I struggled for the next 2 years, on the roller coaster ride of having clients, then not having clients. It was tough and I simply didn't know where to start.
I never wanted to do marketing, I never wanted to do sales, but someone had to do it. I became overwhelmed, stressed out and everything seemed to change overnight. However I have always believed that I would be okay, and I was.
Biggest Challenge Health and Depression
I think this was the biggest challenge in my life. In 2016 I was informed at I had cancer on my nose. Immediately I was admitted into Hospital and had 3/4 of my nose removed. Once this had occurred, then I had 6 reconstruction operations with the plastic surgeons.
Every six weeks I had another operation. Before the operations I was still daily training with my martial arts, totally 30 years in all. After the operations had finally finished, then I fell into depression for the following year.
This was the darkest time of my life. I never left the house for a year, only to get a few items from the supermarket. My life was turned upset down and I fell into the depths of despair. I went from an person who was extremely active and passionate, into a person with zero exercise and felt complete lost. My business no longer existed. I had lost all of my clients and income, being in survival mode. Maybe it was just my time to grieve and switch off.
I was able to pull myself out with now my new vision. I decided that if I was to return to my business, I would do it differently. I had a new purpose, wanting not only develop my marketing skills, but also to help entrepreneurs. This was another pivoting point of my business. Like everything I do, I am resilient and strive to excel.
I studied and still study with mentors and online entrepreneurs who are well known throughout the world as the top performers. It has been 4 years now that I have fully emerged myself with online strategic marketing, and thousands of dollars that I have invested and continue to invest, bringing the latest up-to-date strategies to my clients
I decided that 'hope marketing' no longer supports the direction of my business. As I am writing my core story, I reflect back at how much I have learned, changed and adapted within my role as an online entrepreneur. Maintaining resilience, discipline, consistency and having a strong vision has supported me throughout my 19 years journey as an entrepreneur.
