Is this the year for change for you? Is this the year to make your path to excellence, growth, and prosperity clear? I know 2017 holds a lot of dreams for many of us. For me, I want to find more time to take some acting lessons in NYC, take my parents on a first class trip to Italy (my dad hasn’t left America since 1974!), and take some longer walks in Central Park. I also want to add another $100,000 onto my annual salary (and boy do I have plans), and nurture my newest business (a full-on salon!) to a prosperous place.
When I do discovery calls with potential clients, it is really all about helping you see the picture that is bigger than the lens you are currently looking through (pun intended!). There are so many things that we can miss with marketing, networking, and brand building while we focus on the things that don’t actually bring us in money like Instagram and styled shoots. I see this again and again when I look at my client’s business plans. And again and again, I see small businesses failing and ending and people returning to “day jobs” that do not inspire them or make them happy. I am committed to my businesses being successful, prosperous, and healthy. Oftentimes, I cannot see the full picture to do that and can get stuck running circles in my own head, so I have hired mentors and teachers who are making the kind of money I want to make, and who are running the kinds of businesses I want to run. This is been the biggest factor in my own success.
One of my recent clients had this to say about our three-month coaching program together:
I hired D’Arcy for 3 months of business coaching. I had recently had a child, and though my business was successful by many standards, I felt like I wasn’t able to see where to go next. I had lost a lot of momentum and felt very frustrated. D’Arcy was huge in helping me see what next steps I needed to take in my business, where fear was holding me back, and how I really wanted to grow the mentoring side of my business and create experiences for photographers as they are growing too! She helped me get my confidence back, dream big, encouraged me where I felt stuck, and set and recommit to priorities in my business. I saw huge results in my business very quickly and was able to launch the educational experiences successfully after making a plan with D’Arcy. I always looked forward to our weekly sessions and she is so much fun to talk to. I’m so glad I invested in coaching and totally think everyone who wants to get more out of their business and life should do it!
If you are feeling stuck, unsure, and lack focus and motivation–book a discovery call with me today and let’s see what possibilities we can create for your 2017. But act fast, I only have two openings left until mid-February!
