After our discovery call, what was most impressive is that she literally sent a nicely branded proposal, contract and invoice in less than 60 seconds after our call. I was blown away as her efficiency, and I had to know the magic formula to her quick response to close the deal. Her proven and highly recommended system was a hidden gem of CRMs called Dubsado.
Podcasting came before Coaching in my journey... well, sort of.
I started out as a novice Radio Show Host and launched The Activation Hour Radio Show as a place of connectivity, curiosity and honestly as an act of obedience. I had a longing for media and a nudge to step out and create a space to hear, collect, and record the stories of people who shifted to entrepreneurship and who made radical moves based on their faith. I begin to interview faith based entrepreneurs, influencers, executives and leaders, and over the span of two years on air, one common thing happened in every interview. Every one my guests started their businesses and found their purpose in an awakening to run after their passions after experiencing a tremendous low point in their lives, a point of great transition.
This is what we call an "Activation Hour," the moment when you knew your life would never be the same. I had this same encounter or "Activation Hour" when interviewing my guest. As I sat in the interview chair as the host, I begin to transform to the coach. I found myself asking the deep reflective questions a coach would to better understand the journey of my clients and to prompt my listeners on the same path of their own "Activation Hour." And that's how the coach in me was born.
