Here's the thing. I'm not a guru. I'm someone who is trying to make it work and teaching you the lessons I've learned along the way so you can make progress too.
When I graduated from university as an international student, during a recession, I had 90 days to find a job or leave the country.
With zero connections and no family in the country. I realized I had a ton of skills, but no idea how to market myself. I had to learn quickly and I had a lot of self-doubt. I ended up going from a 0% response rate to over 100 job applications to a 70 as in seven zero percent response rate to 10 applications.
[00:01:46] For every 10 job applications I sent out, I was getting seven interviews.
[00:01:51]As a career coach, I've worked with career development across over 40 industries from aerospace engineering, business, healthcare music, visual arts who zoology and so much more. I've worked with new graduates, graduate school applications, seasoned professionals, and corporate executives.
[00:02:07] Eventually I wanted to leave the nine to five and I wanted to start my own business. I started my own business when life was throwing me major curve balls. And I'll talk about those in the podcast. So I needed more flexibility in my life. Now, every chance I get in front of aspiring and new entrepreneurs , I help them avoid the common pitfalls and mistakes we all make in the beginning.
Information overload for a lot of specialists teaching one thing, like building a website or social media. So I felt I was given pieces of the puzzle and I struggled to see the big picture. I ended up choosing shiny objects, exhausting myself, creating content, or building a website that didn't result in growth or paying clients.
[00:02:51]Plus, there were so many steps on YouTube, but how did they fit together and where to start? I found it all confusing.
[00:02:58]The truth was I wanted to be my own boss, but I had to learn how to be a good boss for myself. So I actually achieved consistent results. As a business coach, I help aspiring and new entrepreneurs break away from the nine to five to start and grow a business, even if you don't know where to start. I've helped clients to start YouTube channels that grow at 5,000 plus subscribers per month.
[00:03:22]Organic growth hacking to achieve over 500,000 or half a million monthly social media impressions in under a year.
[00:03:30] And have new clients reach out each week to book and pay without using the pushy bro marketing tactics that typically scare you away from online marketing.
[00:03:40]From finding what you love to do to feeling confident, selling yourself without self doubt, I'm here to help and support you. Whether you want a job freelance service or business is up to you after I give you the tools to market yourself and sell yourself effectively.
[00:03:54] So I'm really excited to share this podcast with you so you can see exactly why busy, new entrepreneurs, recent graduates and career changers have called some of these lessons that I will be teaching you "career advice with soul."
