Life Coach for Entrepreneurs
You want the kind of honesty – and actionable feedback – that you won’t get from your friends and family. The type of honesty that’s productive for both your startup and your personal life. The type of honesty that pushes you to succeed and be smarter in both areas of your life!
You need a confidential and productive “space” to vent – a sounding board where you can let it all out without freaking out your team, investors and customers. You need a safe place to take a breather, get feedback and positive reinforcement. You need a coach to keep you on track and keep you accountable – to push you!
When you hit a road block, we’ll work it out.
The Lean Startup
Since I was the proud owner of a failed angel-backed startup, Eric Ries’s The Lean Startup really smacked me in the face – hard! It showed me that I had done everything backwards. Now, here was a scientific approach that I could wrap my head around. Following Lean Startup principles would have saved my business.
After seeing so many client’s and friend’s startups fail over the years, I’m a huge Lean Startup advocate. It’s a faster way to decide what to create and where to focus resources and talent.
Killer public speaking confidence to catapult you into superhero status! Heck, you’ll need to hire 6 full-time body guards! Your massive levels of clarity and confidence will straight-up melt the faces off peeps sitting in the first two rows.
You’ll get my insights as one of the top 18 speakers in the world in 2013.
With my help, your public speaking badassery will add a new phrase to the thrill-seeker’s lexicon: 3rd-row is for losers!
Public speaking is scarier than death. And after a couple of years of one-on-one life coaching for business owners, I wanted to share my coaching insights in front of a gigantic audience of strangers. Except, I was still too scared to move past one-on-one consultations. So, in January 2010, I forced myself to go to my first Toastmasters meeting.
Toastmasters is like a martial arts dojo or a dance studio: a place to practice, get mentored and get good. And just like kung-fu or ballet, public speaking is a skill that can be learned. Capital City Toastmasters is my home club in Sacramento, CA, where I’m an active member and speaking coach for members.
I know what it’s like to give a butterflies-in-my-stomach, talking-too-fast, nerve-racking, fidgety-handed, dry-mouthed speech. I also know what it’s like to win 2nd-place and come out in the top 18 out of 30,000 speakers world-wide, in front of 500 attendees at the 2013 Toastmasters International Convention in Cincinnati, OH on Aug 22, 2013.
Public speaking is the fastest way to build Screaming Confidence™. I will teach you to look and feel confident when everyone is watching you.
