I recently had a call with Janet Baker and it was both challenging and eye-opening. I am now very excited and invigorated for the future development of my business after just one session! I thought I was doing quite well, although I was a bit stuck, with the intended changes to my business but during my introductory call with Janet, I had a couple of "light-bulb" moments that actually gave me much more clarity on where I am going.
The call prompted me to finally get my video promo done for my Special August Offer. There were also a couple of other things that needed to be done and with Janet's encouragement and insight, helping me see and move the blocks, they are also on the way to being sorted.
Just as I help my clients to see things with clarity and encourage them to get on with it, Janet helped me to see "the wood for the trees"!
We can't always see the obvious answer when we are too close, as we are when it's our own business. Taking a step back with a great Coach and looking at it from the outside - in, is crucial to success and you can only do that with the help of an outsider’s pair of eyes and ears! Even the best Coaches need a Coach, because we do get in our own way sometimes! I am so pleased to have had the chance to talk with Janet, because, even though it was only an exploratory call, it really helped me to hone in on my next steps and get re-focused on my plans. So, I'm now having a few days away for a change of scene and a break (also VERY important for well-being!).
I have discovery calls booked for next week with 2 Web Developers to discuss my plans and I'm going to be buying a new computer (this one's on its last legs!). There are several other challenges to be overcome in my life, but hey, let's focus on the positive for now, the rest will get sorted eventually! I will soon be firing on all 4 cylinders and the new website will be up and running in about 4 weeks. It will be a great end to a shattering, very difficult year and I can't wait! Thank you so much for your time Janet Baker, it was very much appreciated and I will be back for more soon.

The confidence building and ‘well done me’ was a large part of what I needed to prove to myself that I was in fact worthy of my role. Your constant kindness and generosity was well received. Rather than just a coach I saw you as my business counsellor - a great person to talk to and sound off to about the issues I was facing in my new role. I also loved sharing our reading lists and anecdotal management theory and practice. It built my confidence, helped with my perspective and helped me to regain my work life balance.

You gave me reassurance in my ability and the choices I have made in my job role, increasing my confidence in the decisions that I am making or I am wanting to make in the future. We also looked at how I work with others such as my line manager and my team, and how to communicate more effectively. Janet was always extremely kind and supportive. I found the sessions so helpful as they were tailored to me so the advice I received was exactly what I needed. As I progress my career I think there could be more opportunities for this type of coaching. The coaching sessions have made me feel much more confident in my abilities and within my role. Not only did Janet offer me advice where it was needed, the sessions also allowed me to confirm what I already knew about some situations which added to my confidence.
