Making the Maven Episode 119: Sonia has only been in business for two months and she is rocking it!
On this week’s show, I wanted to bring on a fellow coaching student of mine. I am so proud of Sonia Solomonson’s success. Sonia literally went from unfulfilled employee to business owner with 20 appointments on opening day. The crazy part is, she’s only been in business for two months! This stuff really works when you do the work and I want you to use Sonia as inspiration to stop being unfulfilled/complacent and start taking actions to fulfill your life’s purpose.
Key Insights & Aha Moments
*If you’re sick of hearing me tell you owning your own practice is possible, then you must, must listen to what Sonia has to say. She is crushing it and so can you!
*I have a new training out for you guys. Link in the show notes!
*Where was Sonia in her career before she started her business?
*Sonia became complacent with working for somebody else, yet she was very unfulfilled.
*After talking to friends and family, Sonia realized that she’s still young and the decisions she makes now are going to set her on a certain path for her future. If she’s not happy now, what will she be, 5 years from now?
*Where is Sonia today and what does her business look like?
*On Sonia’s opening day, she had 20 appointments!
*Things really opened up for Sonia when she specialized. Everyone BUT the acupuncture community told her to do that from day one.
*Are you thinking about hiring Michelle as a coach? Sonia says you gotta stop thinking and start doing it.
*At only two months in her business, Sonia has experienced rapid growth. She knows she wouldn’t even be nearly as far a year into the business if she tried to do this on her own.
*She feels like she’s finally coming out of her shell.
*Sonia has never hired a coach before, but being able to have accountability weekly was amazing.
*Sonia is an amazing inspiration for fellow practitioners everywhere!
*Before Sonia worked with me, Sonia was not jumping out of bed every day to get to her job. She was exhausted when she came home. She wasn’t miserable, but she definitely wasn’t having fun either.
*It really works when you do the work!
*Your messaging needs to be put in layman terms! Who are you really speaking to? Not your colleagues!
*To be honest, making money is really boring. Showing up every day and doing good work makes life more interesting, engaging, and frankly, worth living!
*All you need to be is clear on where you want to go. You don’t need to work out the details of ‘how’ just yet.
