“I remember leaving the Chamber of Commerce, having just registered my coaching business in the Netherlands, thinking that I am either crazy or very brave. I was completely overwhelmed with emotions ranging from excitement to anxiety and I kept repeating to myself: ok, so now what?
At the time, I saw my biggest challenge as external – how am I going to find clients when I don’t even have my professional network here? With the time and having worked with numerous clients starting their own business, I realized that the biggest enemy is actually internal – doubting yourself, being afraid of failure, being overly concerned with what people think, becoming your worst boss, because you just don’t know when to stop.
As a high-performance coach, I often check with my clients about what price they are willing to pay for the desired success. Knowing what you are not OK sacrificing is one of the important decisions one needs to make. “
