It is hard to believe 6 months have passed since I was last here. 24 little hours in each day sure do fill up very quickly. The winter months were a bit brutal and became challenging to get around, but I opened my new office in Bedford Hills, NY. The area is lovely and the referrals were welcomed as a delightful surprise. I continue to meet Clients from my home and meet with Dutchess County clients at Panera.
One of my Clients recently asked, “Why do you meet with your Clients in 3 separate locations?” I responded, “Convenience”. She was surprised I shared “convenience” for them versus “convenience” for me. I have been in several businesses and have learned one thing, for sure. When you make it all about your Client/Customer and provide a feeling of comfort for them, they are more apt to work with you. Yes, it would be more convenient if they all came to me…and that’s how it usually is for those who offer their services at one location.
Taking my business to another level was not just for my satisfaction, but for the Client as well. I am sure you have heard the expression, “What’s in it for me?” Frankly, the answer to that is “more Clients”. Yet, when my Clients achieve their goals, some wish to check in monthly as opposed to the regularly scheduled three sessions. This check in usually takes place on the phone, but most, prefer to visit in person….thus making it a full schedule.
What’s in it for me? I enjoy the relationships being built within my Practice. Some have referred others, either for individual or group life coaching. My passion for taking someone from “caterpillar” to “butterfly” phase is extremely exciting for me. Day to day relationships, the stepfamily dynamics, transitions in career and divorce, addictions/recovery….they all make up who we are. But when one of these issues dominates our day-t0-day in a negative way, it is rewarding to see the positive side reveal itself….but through their efforts. I also like the fact that I get to travel among 3 different locations and my days go fast and are NEVER stagnant or boring.
So even when something becomes a bit inconvenient for you – and you make it convenient for others, the rewards are priceless. Yes, take care of you, but be there for others. I believe, and always will, “It is better to give than to receive” ~ what goes around, comes around.
