It's so nice to virtually meet you!
From corporate marketing to coaching yoga teachers. The story's long (just like yours) but in the end, I followed my passion and now have the coolest, most fulfilling career I could ever dream of.
By stepping into my natural gifts and working my tail off for the rest -
I'm Your Marketing Coach
And my mission is to help you keep marketing simple and fun so you can earn more money doing what you love - teaching yoga.
From Cheerleader to Coach
You guessed it. I was a cheerleader growing up. And while I've exchanged the uniform for yoga pants (with pockets!!), I'm still a cheerleader at heart.
Encouraging others comes naturally to me. In every job I've had I was the person who could help the team rally, pick people up when they felt like they couldn't do something and somehow get a smile on really tough days.
Who knew this natural gift would be something that would lead to a career in coaching.
As a coach now, I'm definitely still in your corner cheering you on but I have another role too - the tough-love coach. And this didn't come naturally to me...
"But I learned in building my own business that tough love is needed in order to make progress. You need to be called out on your crap sometimes."
Done Is Better Than Perfect
Let me set the record straight - I'm an encouraging coach, not a yelling one =)
I use my natural gift of encouraging to help you see the next step as a possible step. So often I will see people scared of the next step because you don't think you're capable. YOU ARE CAPABLE!!! Trust me, if you're reading this sentence, you're capable of whatever you set your mind to. I pinky promise.
The "how" might look different than you think it will.
The journey might be tougher than you thought it would be.
But if you really want something, you can do it. And so often it comes down to not aiming for perfection. Hear me when I say...(and say it out loud to yourself)...
Done is better than perfect
"Amanda, words can't express what an impact you've made on my life."
Marketing is my jam
While encouraging others came naturally, I spent time and energy to learn about the marketing stuff. I'm a VERY PROUD alumni of the University of Florida (Go Gators!) with both a bachelors and master's degree in Communications.
But it wasn't until my first corporate job that I really fell in love with marketing. I had a great boss who truly believed in me and helped build my confidence. It's because of this experience that I know how much confidence means to success. It means EVERYTHING! We have to believe in ourselves or else it won't work.
Fast-forward 10 years later and I continue to learn about marketing and build my confidence every day. And I'm now blessed to watch your confidence grow when I work with you. It truly brings joy to my heart when I see you step into your passion as I've done with mine.
Let's do this!
You know it and I know it...it's time.
It's time for you to fill your classes with your dream students.
It's time for you to change your mindset about what marketing is.
It's time for you to make teaching yoga your career and not just "something on the side"
"Launching my membership and taking action quickly in doing so was in great part thanks to your coaching! I ended up with 55 members which was way over my expectations. The income that gives me is a huge bonus and it totally makes all the difference! Plus - I'm really enjoying it!
So a big thank you once more!
You rock!"- Pia
