“Life before coaching with Aleksandra feels like a distant memory now, I’ve changed and grown so much since then. I was just over a year into my business journey and although I had success, I was struggling to find my niche, to focus on what I wanted my business (and me) to be and I was fearful of myself. I would spend nights awake, worrying about small issues in the business. I would fret endlessly. I was a mess. I was trying to do too much, undervaluing myself, unclear on my path and using language that was defeatist. Everything was hard, difficult, stressful and I wasn’t good enough. I nearly gave up.
I tried to be all things to all people. I was doing everything in my business, but I was being let down by people who were supporting me, so I didn’t want to let go. I was thinking short term – get through the next week/month and everything will be okay. None of these things helped.
I had coaching before, and I knew how valuable it would be, but I was worried about the investment required of me in both time and money. I was also worried that it would show that I wasn’t cut out to run my own business. I was embarrassed about putting myself in the spotlight. I didn’t think I deserved to flourish.
Now, my business is thriving. It changed with a thousand different nudges and realisations. I changed my language, I delegated roles in the business so I could focus on what I loved, I built a clear plan and a vision, I created boundaries. Aleksandra helped me to work through and let go of my worry. She helped me to focus on what makes me happy, to work less and earn more. I changed my whole business model, took on less clients and charged more.
My biggest learning was to say NO and in return I secured more work. I trusted in the universe to answer me. I focused on positive collaboration and inspired action. I refocused on success, not worrying about failure.
Ultimately, she helped me find my inner voice, to be the confident powerful badass woman that was inside me, but I was fearful about letting shine. I connected with the vision for my business and let it flow through me. I gave myself permission to focus on myself and step into my power.
I can’t recommend Aleksandra enough, she helped me and my business to flourish and thrive.”
