Learn how successful coaches started out and learn from their success!
Name: Gordana Jakopcevic Location: Toronto, ON Canada
Q. Why did you become a coach?
A. I think the main reason I became a coach was to add value to other peoples lives. It wasn’t something that I initially pursued, I actually didn’t know I had it in me but as I grew my passion for helping other grew as well. That and I always knew that a 9 to 5 job just wasn’t something I wanted. I craved more.
Now I continue to coach because I see the positive impact it has had on my coaching clients, from health, wellness and weight loss to fitness and mindset and most recently business success. It’s helped me and the women I work with create a life we love!!
Q. Aside from coaching what do you love doing?
A. Travelling! I love to visit exotic locations with my three daughters, experience new places and meet to new people. I’m also an avid reader. Give me a good book, an early morning sunrise, a cup of coffee, a warm breeze and I’m in heaven!
Q. What was the scariest thing about starting your business?
A. The uncertainty. I left my career of 17 years and as a single mom jumped into creating my own business with no safety blanket! It was the best yet scariest decision I ever made!
Q. What would you tell someone who is just starting out as a coach?
A. Go pro! Face the fear and the uncertainty and trust your intuition. Strive for progress, not perfection. You will learn so much along the way. If you’re reading this, there is something inside you that’s calling you to love a better, more expressed life. Honour that. You deserve the life you dream of!! Fully commit. Take a big breath and Go For It!!
Q. What is the best thing about your business?
A. Experiencing, the joy of helping others thrive! I absolutely love the personal development. Every one of my clients is in some way a mirror, the learning is incredible. And of course crating the lifestyle I’ve always wanted. The personal freedom I get from Coaching when I want and where I want is amazing!
Q. What exciting plans are you working on at the moment?
A. My book is almost ready to launch!! Stay tuned! I’ve developed a 21-Day online event called Get Clean & Lean with the first launch set for March 1st. I’m so excited!! And I’ve got big plans for my site this year; more video blogs, programs, free stuff and awesome and amazing guests! Stop by and say hi!!
