Many people dream of being their own boss, having the freedom to make all the decisions and answering to no one. If only running your own business and working independently were that simple and stress-free.
You have no one to bounce things off, no one to hold you accountable when you feel like having a duvet day, and no one to deal with the stuff you don't want to, or aren't naturally inclined to do. It can be easy to lose yourself in your dreams and concepts so having someone to hold you accountable on the practical stuff can make the difference between being an impoverished artist and a superstar in your field.
Furthermore, the mental and psychological toll entrepreneurship can bring also often takes people by surprise. And then there’s life outside of work, which can bring its own set of challenges and if things aren't right in one area, the other will suffer. This is why holistic business and life coaching specifically focussed around you and your business gets the best results, tackling where you’re at from all angles, so that you can get to where you want to be instead as painlessly as possible.
In the Prospering Solo programme which is aimed specifically at early stage founders, creatives and freelancers, over a 4-6 month period I will :
Help you get clear on your goals and work out a structured plan to achieving them.
