“Five years from now I want to be hosting multiple workshops a year, introducing my first group program, taking on more mentoring students, and accepting only a handful of weddings each year at a higher price point.”
At our in-person retreat for the Heartfelt Brand Society, my six month group coaching program, one incredibly talented student shared her big picture vision for the next five years with us. Gathered around a beautiful farm table with coffee in hand, we each listened intently as her heart spilled out with each word she shared. It was clear to me that this vision for her life filled her up! But something wasn’t quite clicking in my brain…
“Why is this your 5 year vision?” I asked her. “Why couldn’t we make this happen in 3 years or less?”
As we dove into that idea deeper, I quickly mapped out what it would require to scale her business to that level each year. I could tell that this idea of achieving that dream sooner than she originally believed was taking root in her mind. She could see it happening!
And I’m honored to say that based on that conversation her old 5-year plan is now her current 3-year plan. In her own words, “I finally feel like I have a dream for my business again and that I know the steps I need to take to get there.”
How I Transformed One Group Coaching Student’s 5-Year Vision
Now this incredible group coaching student of mine, a wedding photographer and growing industry educator, wasn’t “wrong” to make those goals her 5-year plan. In Manali’s mind, she was setting an achievable set of goals and giving them a timeframe that felt realistic from her vantage point. Since that’s a level of success she’s never hit before, she felt like that was a reasonable timetable.
But as she shared that with me, as her coach who has hit similar goals before, I was able to assess where she currently was in her business and where she was dreaming of going.
And based on the method I teach inside the Heartfelt Brand Society on how to sustainably scale your business through a clear marketing plan, I knew she would hit those goals long before the 5 year mark.
Instead of setting big goals and wondering how to make them happen, it became a simple matter of setting big goals and confidently knowing the number of clients for each of her offerings she would need year after year in order to hit that definition of success.
The Method for Success: Group Coaching
I created my six month group coaching and mastermind program—the Heartfelt Brand Society—to equip established creatives like you with the tools, accountability, and resources you need to take your brand to the next level. Through monthly group coaching calls, bi-monthly Live trainings, and a dedicated curriculum guiding you through this six month approach, I walk alongside you every step of the way to empower you to hit your biggest, brightest goals yet.
Based on my own insight as an entrepreneur who runs two successful businesses with over eight years of experience, I focus on tailoring this group coaching experience to the students inside my program.
I recognize that your goals are unique. I don’t ask that you do more, add more to your plate, or chase after a definition of success that doesn’t align with your values.
In Manali’s own words, she shared, “I loved that you helped us from the very beginning set our own vision of success and have encouraged us to STICK to it no matter how noisy the industry gets. Your wisdom in making sure that running a business is sustainable AND life-giving is a lesson that has forever changed how I view my business!”
Hit your Biggest, Brightest Goals
What does “success” look like to you, friend? How are you taking brave action to make that vision a reality over the next six months?
Whether you’re dreaming of scaling your business by adding a new service to your offerings, or you’re longing to earn more without adding more to your already overflowing plate, you don’t have to walk that journey on your own.
I’m excited to share that doors for the HBS are opening so soon! And as I accept new applications for this six month experience, I would be honored to walk alongside you as together we pursue your biggest, brightest goals.
Wondering what it’s like to be a part of the HBS experience, friend? Manali shared…
“The Heartfelt Brand Society is like business education and therapy mixed all together. It’s such a wise investment for both your business and your heart. Bonnie is as encouraging as she is incredibly strategic and it’s so helpful to walk alongside other ladies in community as you tackle big new goals!
Looking back, I can easily say it was the best investment I’ve made in my business over the past 2 years. If you’re looking for confidence, clarity and a way to make your business more simple and effective in a noisy world, I can’t recommend it enough!”
