Learn how successful coaches started out and learn from their success!
Name: Luisa Zhou Location: Chicago, IL – USA
Q. Why did you become a coach?
A. For years I struggled with “finding my calling” even though I was professionally and financially successful. I had a great life and awesome high-paying career. But I couldn’t see myself doing the same thing 5, 10 years down the road and I didn’t want to keep on working for someone else. So I built a business on the side and then taking everything I’d learned, started teaching others how to build their dream businesses.
Q. Aside from coaching what do you love doing?
A. Reading (currently reading Robert Cialdini’s Influence), watching Downton Abbey, traveling with my loved ones, and searching for my next awesome culinary experience!
Q. What was the scariest thing about starting your business?
A. Running out of money. I was so scared of spending all my savings, going into debt, and not being able to support myself. Not only that, I was afraid of what my parents and friends would think. Which was why I decided to build my business on the side while I had a steady paycheck from my 9-5.
Q. What would you tell someone who is just starting out as a coach?
A. Be persistent and put yourself out there! You are honestly your biggest obstacle. Once you believe that you can do it, nothing can stop you. All it takes is time and persistence (and a good coach).
Q. What is the best thing about your business?
A. Getting to help other women build their dream businesses, become their own bosses, and live their dream lives.
Q. What exciting plans are you working on at the moment?
A. Growing my audience! I’m so excited to share my message with as many women as possible.
