If you're a NEW entrepreneur, or thinking of becoming one, you're in the right place.
Does THIS sound familiar....
You've always wanted to start your own coaching/consulting biz, but you've been afraid to get started.
You desperately want to start your business, and quit your 9 to 5.
You're a new coach who has a lot to offer, but unsure of what to do, or how to start.
You've started your biz yourself, and now you're struggling to build your list, make sales, and book clients.
You're frustrated with doing everything in your biz yourself, with slow results, & desire expert support.
You desire to work with someone who understands & appreciates your corporate 9 to 5 experience, formal education, and is able support you in using the multiple skills you've attained, to build a profitable business.
If any of the above describes how you feel, I totally get it. Read on..........
"Follow your Dreams or you'll spend the rest of your life
working for someone who did."
That's one of my very favorite quotes. It really speaks to what I believe about entrepreneurship. Thanks for visiting. Hi, I'm Jacqueline, Business Marketing strategist & coach. I'm also the CEO of ELEVATE U, LLC, my official brand dedicated to women elevating their lives, and creating the businesses they desire and deserve. I work with new and aspiring female coaches/entrepreneurs to support them in transitioning from their 9 to 5 jobs, and starting an online coaching/consulting business. I support ladies in developing their wealth creation mindset, book their first client, and master their online marketing strategy,
Before starting my business, I experienced fear and felt many of the frustrations that you may feel now, working for someone else, but wanting to venture out on your own. I did everything "right". You know, the way we were taught to, and were supposed to traditionally - go to college, get a good job, and earn a good retirement pension.
So, I did just that. I graduated from college, earned several advanced degrees, worked hard, moved up to senior management and made a 6-figure salary.
But, that was NOT my passion. After 18 years working in the non profit sector, I found myself unhappy, doing what I was "supposed to", and not following my heart and dream to start my OWN business. I was tired of working long hours and spending less time with my family; I was tired of management politics, favoritism, staff turnover, and picking up the workload when short staffed. I was tired of working on projects I had no interest in, and never ending staff/management meetings that kept me from getting my ACTUAL work done. But, I was especially tired of interviewing, sometimes 3 times for a NEW position, budget restraints and the C-suite wanting MORE and MORE, for less and less. At times, I absolutely hated waking-up to go to work. It felt like I slept at my job, as I spent more time there, and less time at home. I had, had it! It was time for a change. It was time to step into the leader and boss that I was truly meant to be, and start my own business. BUT, it was so risky. I HAD to work. I had bills, student loans and a family to support. How could I?
DECISIONS, DECISIONS, DECISIONS......
Walking away from a job and profession, with a six figure salary, great benefits, and a 401K plan was foolish and risky. That's what I was told repeatedly. Whenever I talked about wanting to start my own business, I heard many discouraging things , including, "are you crazy", AND, "a lot of businesses fail within the first year". But, after many years of working long hours, interviewing for different positions and organizations, and limited pay raises, I finally had, had ENOUGH! I faced the fact that a job, even a professional one, was NOT what I wanted. It was time to do what made ME happy. It was time to pursue my true passion, to be my OWN BOSS! There were many who said it was "too risky", and some even called the move, "dumb", for a woman with my experience and intelligence. But, I stopped listening, and unfortunately, gave some people in my life, the pink slip. Because in reality, it was MORE of a risk to entrust my livelihood to someone else where I could be laid off, or fired without notice (yes, I experienced that too), than it was to discover financial and personal INDEPENDENCE and FREEDOM. It was a tough and scary journey, but here I am now, several years later, with a brand, and business that I'm proud of. I'm living a life with no limits, and it is worth every second of my journey. You will never know true independence and financial security until you are able to achieve it on your OWN.
