What do entrepreneurs, tennis-shoe-wearing fish, and Flo Rida’s “Club Can’t Handle Me” have in common?
They were all a part of Christine Kane’s Uplevel Your Business Live! Retreat!
Last week, I flew to Atlanta to attend the retreat and learn more about how to kickstart my coaching business.
I met dozens of fabulous women (and a few men!) who all believe we can make a difference in the world through our businesses. There were life coaches, artists, consultants, health and fitness professionals, and about everything in between.
Christine kept referring to a strange metaphor in her talks. She said we need to step back and look at our businesses from an objective point of view, which can be difficult when we’re deep in our work. She compared it to a fish who puts on tennis shoes, steps out of the pond, and then looks back at the water.
I have no idea how a fish would wear tennis shoes, but I totally agree that we need to step out of our “stuff” and see the whole picture.
They played a lot of high-energy dance music at the conference to keep us pumped up and awake. The days started at 9:00 am, and we didn’t stop until after 9:00 pm!
We also had a “cue” song to let us know that the next session was about to begin. It was Flo Rida’s “Club Can’t Handle Me” and it played at least 10 times. It’s still stuck in my head a week later.
The best part was when I was selected to go onstage with Christine for an Instant Upleveling session. It was great to get her feedback on Sweet and Sage and the direction of my business.
I have new ideas, programs, and products I’m working on, and you’ll see a lot of changes in the next few weeks. I’m moving to a new domain and updating all my social media profiles.
I love Sweet and Sage, and I’ll continue to offer kind advice for everyday life. But I want to be coach who happens to blog, not a blogger who happens to coach.
By getting clear about my goals, I can better serve women who want balance and direction in their lives.
What challenges, obstacles, or issues are you facing that you would like me to discuss on my new coaching site?
