I can help you start… before you think you are ready….

Feel resistance to a new idea… perhaps you’ll look at it in the new year… not just ready yet…

Guess what? This is your mind-body talk, and it’s all about keeping you “safe” by keeping you in the same place. that’s why change is so uncomfortable – even if it gets you where you want to be, and becoming who you want to become. It involves changing what we do, and what we choose to think – and rewiring our brains in the process. If you want to have a successful business, and you don’t currently..  you need to change something. What needs to happen for you to be ready? Or do you just need to do it anyway?

Make or Break… or somewhere in between

Together, we make a huge impact!

Like most successful businesses, my clients are my number 1 priority!

“I was stuck. Unable to find a way forward and therefore the motivation to really bring my whole self to my work. Working with Tanya was awesome. She was energetic and passionate and that was infectious. She also could see through my excuses, calling me out on a few things and helping me set my bar higher. It was exactly the firm but friendly approach I needed. Also, a big part of my focus and energy is how she helped me find ways to confidently, authentically and genuinely promote myself. After working with Tanya, I became much more focused and energised. It really helped me to be held to account. What I’ve noticed since then is that I have a much clearer sense of direction which has allowed me to make more strategic decisions. i.e. I turned down some work that was not in alignment, to deliberately create time for my private clients. As a result, I’ve seen existing clients ramp up their work with me, and have had discussions with a brand new, prestigious client which is so exciting.

Tanya, I can’t thank you enough for sharing your expertise with me. You have incredible skill at helping people find clarity in the complexity of being human. Anyone who is struggling to reach for the stars and find their way forward will benefit from being coaching by you. You are professional, warm and engaging as you help each person find their potential and act as their personal cheer squad as they smash their goals.”

“Tanya’s experience in leadership, business and teaching – as well as her compassion, humour and coaching skills – make a powerful cocktail of coaching arsenal. Plus I know she understands how challenging the juggling act of motherhood, life and career can be from real-life personal experience. If I was looking to unleash my potential, advance my career or build my own business while still being a present and loving mum – I’d be booking in with Tanya quick smart!”

Whatever your challenge, you don’t need to do it on your own.

Common Challenges

When we are treading new ground, it’s easy to think that we are the ONLY ones experiencing challenges, and that success comes much easier for everyone else. I thought I’d share some of the common challenges my clients and fellow entrepreneurs have shared with me, which may resonate with you.

MONEY, MONEY, MONEY

Whether it is charging our worth, or getting enough money in the door, this is obviously a deal maker or breaker in the long run for business. So many women that I know have a real and very personal mind block around charging for their time – and charging appropriately for their time (services business). If you think your hourly rate should be what you were earning in a paid employee role, you are not thinking in terms of actual cost of running a business. For example, imagine you were earning $30 per hour as an employee. The cost to the business for your time alone is much more (superannuation, taxes, etc), and then there is rent, phones/ technology, business admin, marketing costs, etc… Instead it is better to start with the end in mind.

1. How much will all your expenses be for the year + how much do you want to earn in the year + other staff costs. 2. How many hours per week, for how many weeks in the year are you planning on working? How many of those hours are contact hours (hours you will actually be charging a client for)? Divide 1 by 2 and you will have an estimated hourly rate. Often we have to review this a few times to make it more realistic (yep, I’d love to only work 1 day a week, but it’s more important that I help lots of people). You can also use this approach in a product based business to work out how many units at what rate you would need to sell. Question – do you feel comfortable charging at this rate? If not, why not? Are you concerned that you are not “worth” that much? Are you worried that your ideal clients “can’t afford” you? Is there something else here that is holding you back?
