I have known Earl for several years through networking groups and was aware of the success some of his clients had experienced. Over lunch, I was telling him that my business was very successful, but that it had hit the wall and wasn’t fun anymore. We discussed what had changed (mostly me!) and I asked, “why am I not working with you?” We agreed to meet for coffee the following week.
At that meeting, we talked about my personal goals, likes and dislikes and my values. We talked about short-term activities that could lead to achieving my goals and some systems that I might implement to get there. Through conversations, I developed my approach to growing my business. Earl and I “fine tuned” the approach and I went into execution mode. Earl became my coach as well as my accountability partner. Over the next year, my income increased 40% -- and I was having fun!
