EVER FEEL LIKE A ROAD BLOCK OR A BOTTLE NECK IN YOUR OWN COMPANY?

Small business owners routinely report that one of the most challenging aspects of running a company is knowing the right time to do things themselves rather than delegate, having the time to do it right, and holding themselves accountable. Many of these leaders, by necessity or choice, play multiple roles, from CEO and CFO to COO and CMO, which results in getting them tangled in the proverbial weeds with way too much to do and not enough time to execute.

Yet with Annette's help, I feel like I have. She showed me the path and coached me every step of the way! I am on the path to starting a new business and find happiness in my everyday life! Thank you, Annette!

...I was in search of a coach I could trust and someone I could lean on for advice at a major inflection point in my life. I wanted someone I could confide in but also a strong sensible sounding board that would also cut to the chase and give it to me straight. Annette fit that profile for me... She helped clear away the noise I was allowing to seeps in and to drown out what I knew I needed to do. She helped me focus and identify the steps to take to be that much closer to my goal. Basically she gave me the kick I needed to start running down a new path.

Annette has helped me to believe in myself, to recognize my self worth and to believe that I can attract the position to achieve my goals. She has pushed me outside of my comfort zone by holding me accountable, to trust and stick with the process. Annette begins the journey with self discovery; learning about myself gave me great insight about where I might need to go. She asks the probing questions and can facilitate conversations along the way; opening my eyes to different aspects beyond do I like something and getting to the why something feels right or wrong.Then applies the principles of my personality to each situation and breaks things down to to understand all aspects of why I think or feel the way I do about the situation. All the guidance may lead to a huge change for some, or a sense of understanding and tools to live in the present situation. My journey may end up in the same position in my career but with so much insight and appreciation for who I am as a person, it could be that my title was already perfect. I just needed to understand why and see the positives in a different direction. With Annette by my side, the journey is the focus. My focus. My journey.

Annette was instrumental in my decision to start my own business! She is such a positive coach. I came to Annette because, as a fellow businesswoman, I knew Annette would understand my perspective. I realized that although she is a highly successful businesswoman, Annette also has a huge understanding of small businesses. I need accountability, and, as a solopreneur, the accountability Annette provides is unmatched. It's so easy to feel as if you are working in a vacuum when it's just you. Annette provides the space and accountability necessary for me to maintain my momentum.

—Ashley

 

Annette helps me organize my thoughts. Sometimes my thoughts can be circular, and she has the ability to pull me out of the circle and organize the problem. Annette helps shrink a big issue down to manageable tasks. She looks at the problem productively and provides positive feedback and encouragement. As a small business owner, I tend to get down on myself. Annette has the ability to pull me out of a negative mindset. She is so much more than a cheerleader. She has a depth that is beyond a few positive words. She creates a safe zone to analyze the problem!

—Joseph

Her positivity makes me want to continue growing and pursuing my business goals. Her coaching helps my business succeed, create jobs, and grow the economy...

A really good coach doesn’t tell you what to do. Instead, they ask the right questions to lead you down your own path. I didn’t realize this process until working with Annette. She is such an amazing coach in all aspects of my life, not just in my business. I am grateful for her dedication and inspiration!

I struggle with accountability and often feel stagnant. Annette helps me change and grow. She has made me more agile through her support of my new endeavors. She is a rock star (to use her words) when working with multiple owners and partners at the same time.

—Mike

 

I am grateful to have Annette as a coach. I come to her for help with big decisions and validation. I often joke that she is like a business therapist and a business chiropractor all in one. She helps me work out the kinks in my business. I always feel so much lighter and clearer after a session with her. Whenever I am facing a major life shift, struggling with how to get from Point A to Point B, or simply making tough decisions, I know Annette will truly help me do the best I can.

—Nicki

 

Annette – I have to thank you for our time yesterday. What an eye opening experience for me! You’ve given my thoughts meaning, coupled with the information about my personality traits, I realize that I should set goals and achieve them - not simply settle. The idea that has been floating in my head (bookkeeping) could become a reality…. So much reflection on that this morning. How to expand that into something even bigger and start out small as a part-time thing, etc. I can’t wait for the next session and I’m doing my homework - working on my list and reflecting. Tons of notes. Thanks!

Annette’s energy during our session was infectious! Her skill at focusing on who we are as a team and where we want to go as a business was informative and thought-provoking. She led and guided us to think about our team and in turn communicate our abilities, in new and fresh ways. I would definitely recommend using Annette!

Just wanted to share how fabulous I thought our meeting was. So much to learn and gras, and so much to grow with. Very energizing. We could each spend hours talking with you and sharing our experiences and challenges.

Let me just say I am in a mentally new space today! I left our strategic planning session with a renewed outlook and perspective about my company, my manager, my colleagues / team and the work that we do! In short, the sessions with IE was engaging, empowering and invigorating!

Annette created a session that was both engaging and dynamic. Her energy and approach led our team to not only be able to create as a whole for the good of the company, but also learn about ourselves as individuals and how we impact each other.
