I help women business owners create their client attraction system that turns followers into paying clients. I help them, get focused, simplify and take messy actions that Ignite their Market and get them results.
Ok, there is the elevator speech, but really what does it all mean to you?
It means that I work with you to get laser-focused on what your unique business needs are right now to get more clients! We focus on shining the spotlight on your amazing products and/or services so that you can sell out anytime you want.
I believe that business success is about “the math” and action! It is not only about taking action – it’s about taking the “messy inspired” action.
What else do I believe? I believe now is the time for women to really step into running their own business. I believe it is time for women to start playing bigger to achieve more for their business and themselves. Too many times I’ve seen women themselves being the biggest barrier to their own success. I know this firsthand, as I too have been a barrier to my own growth and success.
What makes me unique?
I was born into the entrepreneurship world; my father ran a successful business from our home. My aunt was his administrative support, my mom did the accounting and I often had breakfast with his employees sitting around the kitchen table. As a result, I had an early introduction to entrepreneurship. During my teens, I never thought twice about answering the business phone or dealing with customers.
My parents strongly believed in education and wanted their children to have a career. So off I went to university and, following in my brother’s footsteps, graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering. I worked for over 20 years in high tech and was fortunate to develop a wide breadth of experience including management, sales, marketing, portfolio management and research & development (product creation and delivery). My career gave me the opportunity to travel extensively and work with businesses in many different countries, including work in the Asia Pacific region.
Then the tech bubble burst while I was living in Sydney, Australia. The company downsized rapidly, the area I managed was sold and I returned to Canada feeling lost and unsure of what was next.
I did a lot of soul-searching and realized that what I loved most in all of my accomplishments was helping individuals and groups realize their own potential. I loved helping them get out of their own way and create massive results. So I took the plunge and I went back to school to obtain my Diploma of Adult Education from St. Francis Xavier University! I also added several key certifications, becoming a Trainer & Coach in Effective Intelligence® and Emotional Power™ and an accredited IOWEU/Smarter Selling Program Facilitator.
I launched my business Horizon Performance Insights in May 2004. Something I never imagined doing after having a ‘”career”, but I did and now I can’t see ever doing anything else! I still remember the joy of getting my first payment from a client. What a great feeling of “I did that all by myself!”. I still get a thrill when I close a new opportunity. It was a joy when I landed a multi-year contract in Zambia to work with a local leadership team. What an amazing opportunity and learning experience!
I love relationship building. I love seeing my clients, corporate or entrepreneurial, have a-ha moments and take bold steps to achieve their goals. I was naturally coaching my clients without realizing there was a formal professional designation to being a coach. Then one of my CEO clients pointed me in the direction of Royal Roads University and their Executive Coaching Certification. That program transformed my business from team building and facilitation to a coaching business working with entrepreneurs, small business owners, and business leaders.
Like all entrepreneurs, my business has had its ups and downs. Through each one, I’ve learned something new and I still love being my own boss. I’ve learned that I have a passion for working with entrepreneurs, particularly women, and that I have a talent for helping my clients get clear and focused.
