Who is this course for? +
If you are a service-based online entrepreneur, coach, or consultant who is not sure what your unique talents and strengths or, or don't really appreciate what they are, this course is for you. If you are ready to discover what makes you so fabulous and are ready to step up to own your uniqueness factor to design a business you love, this course is for you. If you're feeling stuck in a rut and want to get into a good flow and ease in your business, focus on working in your strengths zone, stop being a jack of all trades, or want to boost your confidence and silence your inner critic, this course is for you. If you want to better leverage your strengths and spend more time working in your strengths zone and less time in your areas of weakness, this course is for you. If you want to create a strong business through setting up the right foundation, vision planning, and goal setting, this course is for you.
Who is this course NOT for? +
This is not for those that don't believe they can get results from this course or who are not willing to invest in themselves. This course is not designed for product-based or network marketing business owners; It is designed for the service-based online entrepreneurs, coaches, and consultants. That's not to say you won't benefit from it if you're not a service-based entrepreneur, but I want to be upfront that it was created with the service-based online entrepreneur at heart. This course is also not for you if you want an in-depth personalized private coaching experience. This a self-study course, but there is a VIP option which adds on one 90-minute 1:1 coaching session.
What is the format of the course? +
The course is a self-study format. Meaning, you will gain immediate access via email after with a link to the course materials and will go through the course content on your own, at your own pace, on your own time. However, there is a VIP upgrade to get access to a 90-minute 1:1 coaching call with Joy to help you with the course and get further strengths coaching if you prefer.
How is this course delivered? +
The course is delivered via a private course page. You will get access to download The Strong Business Planner™ and a link to a Trello board with all of the modules and instructions for how to complete the course.
What makes this course different? +
This course is designed to help you discover, clarify, leverage, and support your strengths so that you can create a strong business that plays to your strengths. It's not a one-size-fits-all business approach; rather, is designed to empower you to design your business in a way that feels authentic to you and how you naturally think, feel, and work.
How long will I have access to the course? +
Forever! Once you sign up, you will get immediate access to the materials and can continue referencing back to them over and over again, as many times as you would like.
Do you offer refunds? +
I do not offer refunds. I believe that if you are going to invest in any type of professional service, you need to know/like/trust that provider before you hire them. You want to hear glowing reviews and really do your research on this person. I also believe when you go into something "knowing you have an out" you do not give 100%.
Do you have any professional training, certifications, or degrees? +
Yes! I have a Master in Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree from Western Michigan University. I was selected amongst 30 local millennials to go through a leadership program called Emerging Leaders. I have numerous marketing and marketing automation certifications. I've done the business side of two network marketing businesses for the last 15 years. I currently own a successful business with two arms to it - coaching and consulting (StrengthsDNA), and am the host of a podcast (The Strengths Empowered Entrepreneur). I have invested in thousands of dollars worth of coaching from the start of my business and worked with high-level coaches myself and will continue to do so in order to provide you with the best services I can and become my best self.
What are your dominant strengths as my coach (should I choose the VIP option)? +
Great question! My top 15 strengths in the Clifton StrengthsFinder® assessment are: Maximizer, Responsibility, Relator, Learner, Achiever, Futuristic, Significance, Strategic, Input, Focus, Discipline, Connectedness, Intellection, Belief. You can check out what these mean here at Gallup.com or go up to the About page on my site menu.
