A question that I often get asked is, “how can a business coach help my business?” And I often counter with, “what are struggling with the most in your business?” For me, business coaching is about providing a very customized approach to what the client needs the most help with. Different clients are in different phases of their business and need help in different areas of focus.
The special talent I bring to my coaching practice is being able to look at the big picture and break that down into steps. I’m a problem solver so I look at what struggles are preventing you from reaching the goals you want for your business and figure out ways to fix it and get you on the right path.
Coaching is not about me directing you, it’s about me guiding you and helping build a path to follow in the direction of your choosing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not all yes yes that’s a great idea let’s pursue that and then your next idea let’s pursue that. I ask you hard questions about where goals/new ideas fit into your current business goals and practices. We work together to make sure the path makes strategic sense and it’s supporting the business you want to grow.
Don’t just take my word for it. Here are a few things my past clients have said about working with me:
“Working with Mariah put a fire under my ass that I had been looking for for quite some time. Between each of our sessions she encouraged me to complete bite-sized action items that kept me moving in the direction that I wanted to go in, just didn’t know how to until we connected. Throughout our time together, I created content for a program that I’m launching in the new year. Without her help, I would still be twiddling my thumbs, not knowing where to start. If you feel stuck, but want to begin, Mariah’s straightforward approach leaves you with no choice than to get started! You won’t regret the time you spend with her!”-Emily Kasman, Infinite Health
“I started working with Mariah because as an entrepreneur I found myself with a ton of ideas for my business, but very little direction. Mariah was able to help me clarify my business goals and identify my priorities to get my business growing. After just a few weeks, I now have more focus , long term vision, and clear action steps. Some of the best things about working with Mariah is that she is easy to talk to, quickly gets you to taking action, and always follows up coaching sessions with clear and concise notes and action steps. If you are looking to grow your business and need someone to help you identify priorities and strategize growth, I highly recommend working with Mariah!” –Van Lai-DuMone,Craftivity Events
Often times my coaching sessions revolve around projects (getting all those details in order), marketing (including social media), accountability (ie why aren’t you getting what we discussed done or yay you are a rockstar), systems (why are you still keeping a shoebox of receipts and writing live tweets 4 times a day), all with a side of real talk/pep talk (nobody’s going to notice you only got 2 IG posts out instead of 4, or why do you want to redo graphics you already spent 3 hours doing, or you got this girl and here is why).
While my style is very customized it comes from a strong educational and practical background in business. I have an MBA, BA in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing, and years of jobs where I was tasked with “figuring it out” project by project.
Want to find out what a business coach can do for YOUR business? Book a 20-minute discovery call with me and just ask. No obligations, no expectations, and no hard selling just an open conversation where you can ask me whatever you want. The truth is, it’s NEVER a waste of time. I learn something each and every call to better address the struggles that my fellow boss ladies are facing.
