Do any of these statements apply to you?
You tend to be a perfectionist, leading to issues with imposter syndrome or analysis paralysis.
You look for “gold stars” from others to gauge successes.
You have definite goals for your business, but shy away from setting solid monetary goals— and maybe secretly freak out when those monetary goals are broken down into monthly targets.
You’re sometimes not sure if your business is sustainable, or if it’s a one way ticket to burnout.
All of these mindset issues are extremely common in entrepreneurs, who are notoriously driven, ambitious people. But if you factor in balance, sustainability, and just a general comfort level within the chaos as measures of business success, maybe you need to take a step back and invest in yourself— invest in your self— and find the support you need to shift your mindset and go “from burnout to breakthrough.”
We’re so excited to have Queirra Fenderson, the Ambition Coach, as this week’s guest to walk us through that process. Queirra is a Professional Speaker and Certified Coach who helps successful leaders reinvent their relationship to their ambition. She’s been through burnout, and she’s using the insight gained from that experience to help others put out those fires before they experience burnout themselves. She has inspired business and professional women’s audiences with her dynamic keynotes, TED-style talks and interactive workshops to embrace a new style of ambition and step into their mogul mindset.
Before becoming a coach, Queirra led teams as a Marketing Director for more than ten years. She not so secretly geeks out on productivity, personal branding and high performance. She holds the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential from the International Coach Federation (ICF) and a B.S. in Marketing from George Mason University.
That’s what coaching is really about, is helping you see more possibilities. When you’re overwhelmed, you’re only seeing the fire— you’re not seeing all of the water around you.
Listen in as we discuss:
- the particular difficulty many women face with ambition
- the underlying reason many entrepreneurs hustle— and why it might be hurting them
- the signals that indicate you’re burned out (or on the brink)
- how to navigate out of the fire that is total overwhelm
- tactics for overcoming fear and confidence issues
- peeling back the layers to see your true relationship to money, and how to shift that money mindset
- the value of trusting your intuition to take inspired action
