Episode 43: Soul Searching Questions Every Business Owner Should Ask

Welcome to The Rachel Kurzyp Show.

Today I want to chat about soul searching and some exciting changes I’ve made to my business. 

I feel like the events of the past 18 months or so have really allowed us to do some soul searching; like redefining our values, questioning the way things have always been done and reimagining what the future can look like.

I know that I’m not the only one who has taken a step back in their business and has found themselves wanting to make changes. 

I’ve been really leaning into joy, creativity and celebration recently because these are the things that have been missing from my life lately but also they form the foundation of most of my decision making. 

Even so, asking yourself the hard questions isn’t always the most joyous and easy experience, right? Like with anything worthwhile, it takes work and you have to be willing to pull back the layers.

So to help you through this process, I wanted to share three questions I asked myself that have allowed me to realign my business with my vision.

Here are the questions I recommend you ask yourself if you want to do this alignment work to:

  1. What do you really want from your business?
  2. What’s holding you back from going after what you want?
  3. Will my business make the world a better place?

So what did this work bring up for me?

After some soul searching myself and listening to feedback from my clients and community, I have decided to retire my signature courses, programs and mastermind and instead offer 1:1 coaching.

And while I’m happy to share what the process for changing my business model in a night looked like from a practical level – I’m not kidding I made the decision at 4pm on a Thursday and started actioning everything at 9am on the Friday – today, I want to share with you more about my new coaching program. 

If you’ve been a client of mine before, this change may not come as much of a surprise to you because you know firsthand the kind of transformations 1:1 coaching can support you to achieve.

The number one feedback my clients always give me is the level of 1:1 support in my programs is one-of-a-kind. And they would happily pay more to have more access to me. 

Feedback like this means the world to me and I know that my unique blend of coaching, consulting and teaching is the reason why my clients are able to sell out their courses and workshops, get invited to speak on podcasts, hire team members, are featured in industry publications, and use their content to fill their client roster months in advance.

And when I looked around at the industry and saw that there aren’t many coaches with my level of expertise offering 1:1 coaching, I knew this was something I wanted to offer because I believe everyone should have access to the marketing support they need to create sustainable, ethical and profitable businesses.

So what does this 3-month Coaching Program involve?

This 1:1 coaching program, like everything I offer, is part mindset, part strategy and part implementation. BUT it is tailored to you, so once I know where you’d like to focus your time, energy, and creativity, I can create a 3-month plan that supports your business goals.

This program is designed for creatives who benefit from personalised support, crave accountability, and want a partner in their business who is right there co-creating with them. 

Together we will identify opportunities and areas for growth so you can continue building an aligned business.

This means we can create evergreen launch sequences, get you published in your favourite publications, build a course, start a podcast and everything in between.

Here’s what’s included:

  • An online form will help me get to know you better and understand where you’re currently at and where you want to be to set the scene and prioritise for the next 3 months.
  • 60-minute 1:1 coaching calls every two weeks where we will dig deeper into any mindset, strategy, or implementation areas in your business that need our intention.
  • Daily access to me via voice message on Voxer Monday-Friday for any questions, concerns or opportunities that come up that you’d like my support with.
  • Weekly content/copy review where you can share with me what you’re working on (e.g. email launch copy, business plan), and I can provide detailed feedback and suggestions.
  • Recordings of our Zoom sessions and any workbooks, materials and exercises you require to support thinking, learning and implementation.

I want to be open and transparent so you can make the right decisions for your business. So I’m happy to share that the investment for this program is $1,200 AUD per month for 3 months.

Over the last week, I reached out to past clients and people on waitlist to work with me and I’m shocked at how quickly places have sold out. Four spots were sold in 12 hours.

Gratefully, I expect to fill the remaining places for the rest of 2021 and into Jan 2022 within the next week.

So if you’re interested in working with me 1:1 or have been waiting for the opportunity to join my other programs, then I’d love you to book a call with me via the calendar link in the show notes. This call will give us a chance to get to know each other to ensure we’re a good fit.

If you book a call, I’ll save you a spot so we have time to speak and for you to decide if this is the right program for you. If you’re like “YES, I’m in, Rachel” after our call. All you need to do is, pay a deposit of $500 AUD to secure your spot and set a date for when you’d like to get started. 

I’m so excited to work with the incredible women, creators and business owners who have already said yes. Nothing makes me happier than working 1:1 with my clients and witnessing the incredible transformations and success they create for themselves.

If this program is speaking to you, book in your call now. I can’t wait to speak with you.
