Chasing Squirrels

Ever feel like you have so many things going on that you are just running from one thing to another? I do.

I’m busy drafting my Maple Blog and all of sudden: Squirrell!! I’m distracted by something else that has come up or we need to prepare for. It’s frustrating but at the same time, it means lots of good things are going on. I thought I’d recap what we’ve been up to and what we are working on now.

1st Annual Health and Wellness Fair at the BizWorks Enterprise Center

Scott and I were honored to participate in this event last week. I wasn’t initially sure if we were right for the event but as the Director pointed out ‘wellness is about body, mind and soul and Maple certainly supports that’. Well, Yes it does!candid from the health fair_cropped

Two things that were reinforced for us as we talked to people: 1) We all genuinely want to do better for ourselves (aka work on our personal growth). 2) We all struggle with it.  We put something in the way – time, money, lack of clarity or motivation. Whatever it may be, something holds us back. The good news, this is exactly why we built Maple!

Business Readiness Assessment and Support Service

I have met many amazing coaches, either starting their practice or growing it. Eventually most reveal they have run into ‘the struggle zone’: things they needed to prepare for and put in place to enable a healthy thriving coaching business, but didn’t. It’s a question of: is the business ready to succeed? Have all the bases been covered?

This brings Scott and I back full circle to our consulting days. We did a ton of this work, specifically preparing projects for success and (unfortunately) resuscitating the projects that were struggling because they hadn’t fully prepared. Those consulting engagements were usually weeks or months long and high dollar propositions. Coaches don’t typically have the luxury to engage that kind of consulting for their practice, but wouldn’t it be great if they could?! Well…

We’ve retooled what we know to offer it to coaches in a realistic package that is not going to take months to complete or break the bank! We’re offering a readiness assessment that includes a recommendation on the big-ticket items, resources to help you address issues and the option to have us set up your solutions and/or coaching to get accustomed to your new processes and systems.

JumpStart Your Personal Growth – 30 Day Challenge

We were in the process of building a 30 Day Challenge to help new users get comfy in Maple. After hearing the Health Fair stories, we are turning this into a program to embrace personal growth. Still 30 days, with an email each day, but we’re ramping those up to include information, resources and tips that will help you make conscious choices about working towards your big goals. This should be available very soon, watch this space for details. Oh, and did I mention, its’s FREE!

Unspoken Strategies for Successful Entrepreneurship

If you follow my blog you already know I frequently I say: “Why didn’t anyone tell me about this?” I believe we all learn from each other, so I’m sharing what I’ve learned in the past few years about successful entrepreneurship. The first thing I need to tell you: business success isn’t your success. Even if your business has your heart and soul (and we know it does or you wouldn’t be doing it), you are not your business. Let that sink in.

We’re going to talk about what that means and what folks aren’t telling you about making sure you’re succeeding as your business does. I’m sharing all at the FAB Women event in Charlottesville on March 15 – 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. (Seating is limited). If you want more info Contact me and we’ll talk!

JumpStart Your Personal Growth – Lunch and Learn

We’re back at BizWorks on March 28 from 11:30 to 1:00 p.m. to talk about committing to your personal growth journey. We’re all growing and evolving, why not do it with focus and in pursuit of your goals? We’ll be leading a conversation on why personal growth matters, sharing our personal stories, talking about reinforcing new healthy habits and putting Maple to work for you. Want to join us? We’d love to see you there, reach out to the BizWorks team for more information about participating.

There you have it! Lots of great things going on and even more on the horizon. Still wondering about personal growth or how Maple or Maple Pro can help? Don’t be shy, reach out and we can find out what works for you. Come on, Let’s Grow!
