Interview with Alyssa
What exactly do you teach as a Business & Intuitive Success Coach?
There is both an art and a science to growing a business, throughout my career I’ve learned to balance the right combination of these two. Being a business owner requires a combination of mental toughness & mindset, good habits, and specific skills specific to grow your business.
We will create a detailed roadmap for your business, based on your goals. You can’t move toward with focus without a specific destination in mind. Once you create your end destination, we will build on foundational skills to create base habits. We then explore your intuition, success habits, marketing, mindset, leadership and more! All layering on to build your skills for success in your business and industry.
How long have you been doing what you do?
I have been a marketing consultant and strategist for over 12 years now, where I have been teaching and helping business owners to grow their businesses. I’ve been empowering women to live their best lives, learn the skills of entrepreneurs and discover their own confidence for over 4 years now.
How did you get to be a Business and Intuitive Success Coach?
It all comes back to following my intuition & following my passions in life. I fell into graphic and web design as my business only after realizing in college that it had been a passion of mine since about 12 years old. I’m a very motivated self-learner so I have researched & studied complimentary skills throughout my childhood and career in my areas of focus. This drive has given me 12 years of hands-on experience in marketing & business development for myself and for clients.
I received amazing training in sales, business and leadership , then mentored other women in business & sales, mindset and leadership skills for women starting their entrepreneurial adventures. My focus is to inspire women in all businesses to live their best lives and bring their dreams into reality. (I work with men as well, who have that passion to bring their dreams to life and create their vision.)
I have repeatedly coached women to crystallize their vision, provided them the tools to act on their dreams and provided accountability follow through with those actions. I believe that confident women (and men) can achieve anything and that we each have everything we need inside of us.
I’ve formalized my training my taking a year-long Intuitive Success Coaching course, culminating in coaching practice hours and a week-long intense coaching session. I am now a certified Intuitive Success Coach.
What is an Intuitive Success Coach?
Intuitive Success Coaching (ISC) is the process of waking up to your gifts and clearing the mental, physical and emotional blocks that stop your natural ability to live your full potential and best life. By following your intuition, it allows the energy of love, peace, joy, happiness and prosperity to flow. With this training, I help clients become clearer on their vision and connect with their intuition to find the best path for them.
Science has shown that we are receptive to minute signals that our conscious mind does not even notice, and we subconsciously process all of this in milliseconds. Listening to your intuition is actually a vital skill to creates greater ease and joy in your life and business, while achieving prosperity.
Why do you believe that coaching is so valuable?
With anything in life, receiving the guidance of someone who has been through your situation helps to bring you through the learning process faster. Coaching is a part of sports, business, personal and life coaches, just to name just a few.
I have run my own business since college (over 12 years ago) and I have worked with a variety of coaches as I progressed through different levels of my business. I know that my success today is due to my investments in taking guidance and advice from my coaches. Each coach had a unique specialty and I was drawn to them by my intuition.
I have worked with coaches throughout my business as I have always understood that there is only so far I can see by myself and that by reaching up to a helping hand, I gain another’s perspective and experience to get me to their level faster. I have had coaches specializing in brain science, intuition and life purpose, executive coaching, theta healing (where I also received certification) and most recently I completed an intuitive success coaching program where I received certification as an Intuitive Success Coach.
I overcame countless personal and business obstacles with the support of my coaches. Knowing how crucial this is to business success, I couldn’t let these skills and lessons go unshared with the world.
Who are your clients exactly?
I work with business owners (or aspiring business owners) just like you, who are running their own business or are self-employed, independent professionals. They are really good at what they do but are learning how to run & manage a business, market their business and get more clients, all at the same time!
I work with a variety of industries and professions, but the one thing that unites these women (and men) is that they have a passion and a dream in their heart that their business is helping them build.
My clients have an inner ‘badass’ and for each woman, this is unique but it is an essential part of who they are and how they express themselves. Rather than being defined by their business, their business is just one part of who they are: powerful, fierce women!
What happens if you haven't yet worked with people in my field?
What I love about the systems I teach is that it is more about you, the business owner, and your mindset. Marketing has best practices that can be adjusted for any field and I have worked with such a variety of industries that I know how to tailor it to your business. Additionally, having a fresh perspective in your field helps you stand out in a crowded marketplace and attract your ideal clients to you.
I have worked with a wide variety of industries and have most likely worked with your industry before as well.
How are you different from other coaches?
I coach on and focus on systems to create a strong foundation for your success. While our customized sessions are invaluable and my clients’ favorite part, I am also teaching you the fundamentals of running and owning a business so that you have systems to build on, even when our time together comes to a close. I empower my clients, to ensure that you can succeed with tangible takeaways throughout the process.
In addition, I am a woman business owner, working to support other women business owners. I believe that each of us has our own unique talents and although we learn to navigate in a man’s world, we still work best when we embrace our feminine talents.
I have worked with women business owners for 12+ years to brand their business and then market it to help them excel in their chosen fields. In a sense, I have coached business owners these last 12 years on how to grow their business. I am now taking my services deeper to offer a more comprehensive solution where I help you grow as a business owner while growing your business as well.
I integrate practical skills while helping you strengthen your intuition so that you can live your best life.
How do I know you can help me?
In my program, you receive weekly video trainings and worksheets that go alongside with your personal coaching sessions. These skills cover systems of daily habits of success, marketing, mindset, intuition and more. All are easy to follow, proven habits and then on top of that, you receive accountability, support and customized coaching in your sessions.
I find that the clients I can help best are drawn to me – your intuition will speak to you and it will feel good at the thought of working with me.
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
I work best with women who are excited and impassioned about their business. They have a strong work ethic, great communication skills and are a woman of their word. As a high achiever and go-getter myself, I work great with other women who have these skills because I understand you and the fire that drives you.
I expect that you do want to grow your business and that you will show up & be present at our sessions and follow through on your homework. When I am with you, you have my undivided attention and I want you to be able to get the most benefit from it.
In turn, consider yourself in a hands-on learning course. You will be expected to take consistent action, without excuses. You have dreams to create!
For what type of professional is this program NOT going to work?
I want the best for my clients and I want you to see results from working with me. I’m very selective with who I work with and hand pick who I work with and (gently) turn away those who are not suited to work with me. Our “get-acquainted” call will help us get to know each other and confirm that we work well together.
My program is not for people who are in financial crisis. I find that they are too stressed out and are not prepared to take action on the steps I recommend. If you are in this position, that’s ok. We’ve all been there are one point or another and now is the time to focus on immediate, consistent income and you can build your business on the side.
How will we work together and what does the program entail?
I offer several package levels customized to my clients’ needs and role in business. Each package includes regular meetings with me, where we work on your current goals and challenges. In addition, you will receive weekly coaching videos on key tips to move your business forward, with worksheets to help clarify and define your vision.
Growing a business is a process, and is not accomplished in just writing the business plan or doing a couple of exercises - you then need to live it each day. Coaching is similar in that sitting down to meet once or twice will help, but doesn’t guarantee results. I have created several packages to ensure that we develop success steps, and then meet regularly. By doing this, we build a foundation of good habits in your business and then continue to face new challenges that come up in your business – together. This will create the lasting results you are looking for.
The benefits of coaching are cumulative: each week we build on the work accomplished in the previous coaching session.
Ok, I’m ready to take action and do this for myself, how do I get started?
Great! Taking action is one of the most common traits of successful people! Being decisive and taking educated risks leads to success faster through continual movement. As they say, it just “felt right”. Following that intuitive gut instinct is how these people make decisions. Since it feels right, go for it.
To get started, contact me by email or at my cell phone: 925.989.5693. I can’t wait to meet you in person or online!
I’m ready to take action but have a few more questions. Can I call you?
Good, sounds like you’re ready to make your own future. If you have a couple of questions, I will be happy to answer them to help you make a decision on your best package that will suit you. I can’t wait to see you succeed.
