Hi, I'm dimple

In this post you’ll see how coaching can fast-track you in developing the skills and mindset needed to achieve your goals and help you drive your personal and professional growth. There are also plenty of inspiring examples of ambitious women who have done exactly that.

Do you want to serve your audience with a service or product you know will change their lives for the better? Do you want to have someone who genuinely believes in you and what you are capable of? Are you tired of working your butt only to be overlooked for promotion and better opportunities? Are you being paid what you deserve? Hmmmm I didn’t think so.

Ambition. It’s that fire that fuels your dreams, that relentless pursuit of success. But it’s also an art that requires fine-tuning. The art of strategy, resilience, and adaptability. And like any other art, it can be honed. Enter the world of coaching.

Coaching isn’t about hand-holding. It’s not about someone else doing the heavy lifting. It’s about arming you with the tools, strategies, and insights you need to unlock your full potential. Coaching amplifies your strengths, mitigates your weaknesses, and sharpens your perspective. It’s the difference between good and exceptional. It’s the springboard to your success.

Coaching Helps You Build Resilience

Life isn’t a bed of roses. It’s probably more like a roller coaster ride: thrilling, unpredictable, and yes, sometimes scary. But it’s this roller coaster that shapes you, molds you. Resilience isn’t just bouncing back from adversities; it’s growing through them. It’s the art of turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones.

Through coaching, you’ll develop resilience. You’ll learn how to harness the power of adversity, to adapt and to thrive. You’ll become a master of change, capable of navigating any choppy waters in your life with grace and tenacity.


Invest In You

In the grand scheme of things, our investment portfolios are often diverse: stocks, bonds, real estate. Yet, how often do you consider investing in the most valuable asset we possess? You.

We’re not talking about a spa day here, (though that’s pretty important too). We’re talking about the substantial investment of time, effort, and resources into your personal and professional growth. It’s about building your skills, enhancing your mindset, and equipping yourself to achieve what you set out to do. It is about becoming the best version of you.

To the untrained eye, coaching may seem like an extravagance. An optional add-on. But to those in the know, it’s a secret weapon.

Picture this: A world-class athlete without a coach. Seems off, doesn’t it? The best of the best have coaches. Why? Because they understand the value of guidance, of having an experienced hand to steer them towards their goals. And in the arena of life, ambitious women are no different. I’ve worked with several coaches over the years and no doubt will continue to work with them all through my life. 

Examples Of Successful Women Who Have Used Coaches

Arianna Huffington: Thrived With Coaching

Arianna Huffington, the co-founder of Huffington Post and founder of Thrive Global, is an example of a powerful woman who harnessed the power of coaching. She worked closely with coaches to build resilience and redefine success after her BIG wake-up call, a physical collapse from overwork and exhaustion. Coaching played a critical role in her journey towards balancing success and the establishment of Thrive Global, a platform that helps individuals improve their well-being and performance.

Sara Blakely: Even Self-Made Billionaires Need Inspo

Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx and the youngest self-made female billionaire in America, is a testament to the power of coaching. Blakely attributes much of her success to the teachings of Dr. Wayne Dyer, a brilliant motivational speaker and self-help author who is sadly no longer with us and who shared that incredible game changing quote ‘Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change. Sara embraced his teachings on positive thinking and visualization from an early age, which provided her with the resilience and adaptability she needed later on, to overcome her early struggles and build a billion-dollar business.

Jo Malone: From Fragrance To Fierce Businesswoman

Jo Malone, the creator of her eponymous beauty brand and later Jo Loves, is one of the UK’s most successful businesswomen. But her path to success wasn’t straightforward. After selling Jo Malone London to Estée Lauder, Jo found herself disconnected from her brand and struggled with her identity. A period of personal coaching helped her rediscover her passions, leading to the creation of a new brand, Jo Loves. Coaching was instrumental in helping Jo understand her strengths and reignite her entrepreneurial spirit.

Karren Brady: Football Exec Scores With Coaching

Karren Brady, known as the ‘First Lady of Football,’ has made her mark as the Vice-Chairman of West Ham United. She is also a prominent speaker, author, and mentor to many young women, as well as one of the presenters on Britain’s ‘The Apprentice,’ with Lord Sugar. 

She didn’t get there on her own. Karren has frequently credited her success to coaching, noting how her early mentors and coaches helped her navigate a male-dominated industry. She now pays it forward, coaching ambitious young women who aspire to leadership roles.

Alex Scott: From Football Pitch To Pundit

Alex Scott, former footballer and now renowned sports pundit, has made a successful transition from the field to the studio. But the transition wasn’t always smooth. Alex faced numerous challenges, including online trolling and criticism, an unfortunate side dish served with social media these days. It was through coaching that Alex built the resilience she needed to deal with these adversities, effectively handling criticism while staying true to herself. Alex is now known for her insightful analysis and has become a role model for young women in sports journalism.

These examples of ambitious women, from the fields of business, sports, and beauty, underline the power of coaching. Whether you’re a small business owner, a corporate leader, or traversing your professional journey, investing in coaching can be the game-changer you need.

Sometimes all you need is a little nudge, a little guidance. It’s worth investing in yourself, to build your resilience, enhance your adaptability, and set the stage for your future achievements. 


My Nugget of Wisdom

Napoleon Hill, the legendary self-help guru, once said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” As a transformation coach, I’ve seen this wisdom change the lives of so many women. It’s about belief and mindset. If you can envision your success, and genuinely believe in it, and then feel it through your emotions, you’re halfway there.

I know because I took this journey myself. It required investing in myself, even when I felt I could do it on my own. Remember, every dollar, pound or euro, and every minute spent on personal development is an investment in your best resource – YOU.

I’ve been privileged to work with thousands of impressive women in politics, business, sports, and entertainment. They invested in themselves, not just because they desired success, but because they knew in their heart that they deserved it. 

“Whatever The Mind Can Conceive And Believe, It Can Achieve.”

Napoleon Hill

And so do you. Along this journey, as your transformation coach, I am committed to walking beside you, sharing insights from my own experiences and those of countless incredible women I’ve worked with, empowering you to fast track your own path to success.
