At certain points of time, we require professional advice rather than from friends and family. Nearly every successful individual we hear about has worked with a life coach to achieve abundance in a personal and business career. Having a mentor does not mean to get a list of things to do or avoid. A coach will understand the strength and guide you to find to shift to maximize the transformation towards greatness.
Meet Brooke Schultz, an online business coach, and Forbes coach council official member.
She has supported numerous women to get out of 9-5 jobs and build thriving businesses. What is remarkable about Brooke is her expertise to tap into the gap between your current situation and where you want to be. She brings out the clarity in your desire and provides step by step strategies to achieve the result.
Hello Brooke, we are thrilled to have you on our media. Please tell us a little bit about your background and how you ended up choosing your field.
My background is in marriage and family therapy, which is what my masters degree is in. The original plan was to become a licensed therapist, but when I was hoping my clients would no-show for sessions with me, I knew something was wrong. I wanted to utilize my skill set developed in grad-school in a more exciting way, so I began with online life coaching. After successfully growing that business, I transitioned to business coaching, which is what I do now! I have the honor of helping women all over the world achieve greater business success so they can make an impact in the world while working less and making more!
What made you take the leap into entrepreneurship?
At 23, I was already down in the doldrums about a career that was supposed to light me up for the rest of my life… That did not sit well with me. I stumbled upon the world of online coaching and haven’t looked back since! Being an entrepreneur makes every day new and exciting, while also providing my family more financial abundance than I could have ever experienced in a corporate career. I love helping others experience these same results.
What advice would you give to someone asking for advice about becoming an entrepreneur?
If thinking about being an entrepreneur lights you up more than your 9-5, go for it. There are always going to be reasons TO do something and reasons NOT to do something…align yourself with the reasons why you should and never go against your gut.There will be obstacles along the way. There is less stability and certainty in being an entrepreneur, but if you can step outside of your comfort zone, you will overcome the obstacles every single time and live a MUCH more fulfilling life.
What would you say was the single most influential factor in your business’ success?
The #1 thing that led my business to be successful so quickly and continues to propel it forward is my willingness to invest. There are 3 different types of investments – financial investments, time investments, and emotional investments, and a successful business requires all 3. Whether you have an abundance of cash right now or not, find a way to invest financially in something like a business coach to support and guide you as you grow your business. Commit to putting in the resources, time, and passion it takes to succeed.
