How have I sold over two million dollars walking dogs?
Passion: an intense desire or enthusiasm for something. I have loved and connected with dogs from the time i was a little girl, and the intense desire and enthusiasm to connect with them drew me through all of the possible exit points of my business. I now have accessed the ability to love and connect with people on a whole new level too.
Support: be actively interested in and concerned for the success of something. From my family, friends, partners, staff, coaches, clients and dogs, i could not do this alone ~ which is funny coming from someone who set out to hide in the forest with dogs.
Courage: the presence of heart to move forward without knowing how (i wrote this definition of courage recently). At so many crossroads, i kept choosing to continue. Through all the fear, heartbreak, lack of confidence, i found the courage to continue, most of the time without knowing how.
This is where it gets interesting… I hired a coach to sell this business in 2011. What happened? She helped me find untapped resources within me to continue to grow myself, and this brought me to the awareness that the more i’m willing to grow as a person, the more my business can grow.
At this point, i think it’s fair to say coaching changed the trajectory of my life. I was so surprised at the depth, richness and authenticity of those conversations that i had to know where my coach (thank you to infinity Tracey Burns!) learned to connect this way. Enter Accomplishment Coaching.
Tracey, followed by Accomplishment Coaching and my subsequent coaches, have stood for me as i have dove ever deeper into the well of resources within me. I am continually amazed at what is made available from these conversations. All these years, still diving deeper, it seems the resources within continue to emerge. I continue to draw upon and invest these resources to grow my businesses (yes, now three), relationships, and my life. The results? Over two million dollars sold walking dogs, and two other businesses on a rivalling trajectory; relationships beyond what i thought possible; self expression and self love that brings a sense of peace to my soul.
