I’m a small business operator and run a creative agency called Creatiq.
Although I was happy with how the business was running, there were aspects I knew could be better, such as identifying where I really wanted the business to be long term – down to improving my own time management in order to make that happen. When I looked into options for support I realised I could achieve these things more effectively with a good coach. Meeting Anthony Venn-Brown at a business function enabled me to explore that further.
Working with Anthony as my coach and the exercises he took me through, made me realise that I needed to adjust a significant aspect of my previous business plan. Something that hadn’t appeared clearly before and it was imperative that I make those adjustments NOW!. I can’t even begin describe the value in this, however Anthony’s quote adds some context. “It really sucks when you’ve climbed the ladder of success only to find it was against the wrong wall”.
Although I entered the program seeking a business coach, I believe one of the most significant experiences was the exercise of evaluating my personal values. Getting a better understanding of what my core values are, I found, plays a fundamental role in my professional life, as well. This holistic approach positively impacted areas I was not anticipating
The entire experience has brought so much clarity in different aspects, that many get at a later stage in life – sometimes not at all.
We all know that the greatest athletes in the world have coaches to help be their best, why can’t we?
I’m truly grateful to Anthony and I encourage anyone, regardless of where you are in your life professionally or personally to step up and Dare to Be Your Best.
