Business Startup Coaching
Do you dream of starting your own business?
Of course you do. You're driven.
You've got a burning desire for more and to turn your small business dreams into your reality.
You and I are the same. We want to live our highest potential. We want to make a difference with our work. We want to feel proud of what we do. We can't just show up to work and do the bare minimum and be satisfied.
But juggling your 9-5 while transition into business ownership is harder than you knew. I'm here to tell you that burning desire to turn a dream into your reality is entirely attainable.
Turn Your Dream Into A Reality
I've got good news and bad news. The good news is, you've mastered your current career. The bad news is, your current job is boring, dull, and not challenging you professionally. It's time to get started on building a business you've been thinking about for years.
It's time to try something new. Creating a business that spans the test of time requires a solid foundation, something you must have from the very beginning. Starting strong will give you the peace of mind that whatever you build upon it will last.
That's where I come in; to guide you each step of the way, remove roadblocks, and help you achieve lofty goals that'll undoubtedly lead you to success.
Hi, I'm Maggie
Your dream of a business is too important to skimp on the details, especially when you're in the startup phase. Whether you're passionate about monetizing your hobby or have a business idea you'd like to see come to fruition, I can help.
I take the sweat out of the small stuff for new business owners. With over 15 years’ experience working with business professionals and students in career coaching and training, I use the principals, skills and techniques in project management to coach ambitious individuals. I have served as a Campus Dean at two proprietary universities and am an award-winning educator and teacher.
You have the skills to make this happen, and I've got the roadmap. Together, we can make magic.
Here's How It Works
I lay out the yellow brick road ahead of your every step so that you can focus on what you love. Getting distracted by the nitty-gritty details of starting your business will delay and possibly stop your development plans. With my guidance and mentorship, we will keep your projects moving forward.
About half of all new businesses survive five years or more, and about one-third survive ten years or more. Increase your odds of success with a solid foundation and understanding of common business pitfalls. Getting set up for long term success is the only way you'll make your business stand the test of time.
I help you get there by addressing all of the common pitfalls upfront and creating a plan of attack for overcoming them (before they happen).
A Cautionary Tale
Have you heard of Wallace "Wally" Amos? What he thought was an opportunity to grow his business, ended up costing him everything - even the rights to his name. Wally struck out on his own to open a cookie store: Famous Amos. He knew how to make and package cookies, but he didn't know how to run a business. That's when investors took an interest in what he had built, claiming they could help him in a tough time. Over the years, these investors chipped away at equity in Wally's business and eventually took everything, even the rights to his name.
Not all investors are bad people. But I am bound and determined to ensure that what happened to Famous Amos doesn't happen to anyone else, ever again. I understand the complex elements of starting a business and the essential steps needed to build a strong foundation.
I help you do just that; build a business with a strong core foundation to succeed.
As much as you may think, running a business is your dream, that's not it. You want to make money doing something you love - a hobby. How amazing would it feel to wake up every morning, work your craft, and have people pay you to do it?
It's your dream! But not a reality. That's why passionate people hire someone like me. I can get you through the startup phase, ensure everything is running right, so rather than obsessing about how to file your taxes, and you can keep your eye on big goals.
I work with business owners so you can work your craft and successfully grow a business.

Setting SMART goals
Is today the first day you've seriously considered chasing after your business dream? Probably not. But it could be the first time you’ve had the opportunity to hire a mentor to help. Locking down the legalities of becoming a boss and going hard at making it happen might feel like it's too much too soon, but don’t let that stop you from making plans.
In that case, my free guide to setting S.M.A.R.T. goals are perfect for you. I designed it with the small business owner in mind. With so many moving parts, it's wise to lay it all out and get clear on what you're working so hard to achieve. That way, when you are ready we can hit the ground running. < Download your free S.M.A.R.T. Goal Planning sheet today! >
