Personal Coaching

Sketch of Maja as personal coach

All entrepreneurs need an occasional sparring partner to think along and challenge them on important business decisions from time to time, right? And for most of us, business and personal challenges tend to be intertwined.

There are many puzzle pieces that need to come together when you pour your heart into your business.

Your business is a complex puzzle

Marketing, sales, operations, administration, and product innovation need many different people, each with their skills, personalities, and desires, to come together to turn a business into a success.

An on-going challenge that needs your constant attention.

Why corporate branding is so difficult

Your confidence is what keeps the business running

People do business with people. To succeed, you need to develop your business skills, yes. But it's also important to make branding decisions that position you as an entrepreneur with whom people want to do business.

I know you're tired, but you need to find that balance that works for you.

There is no magic formula to finding the peace of mind you’re looking for

But talking about it does keep you on your toes.

I am here to talk to you about those professional dilemmas that keep you awake at night. To be that critical friend who holds up the mirror, challenges your decisions, and thinks along on how to tackle the practical challenges at hand. My experience says they typically fall under one of these three umbrella topics.

Business challenges

I sometimes second-guess myself, how do I know if I'm making the right decisions?

Brand positioning

It's a saturated business world, how do I decide what I want to be known for personally and professionally?

Personal development

There is so much I want to do, how do I choose what to focus on and what do I prioritize?

As a brand strategist myself, I enjoy helping people stand out online. But when the time came to revamp my own digital presence, I found myself struggling to decide what to focus on. Maja is not afraid to share her sharp point of view in a caring approach. Her magical touch helped me clarify both my brand and business positioning as a whole. It went so well that I continue to have a coaching session with her every month.

MycoTEX offers a product that benefits fashion brands, consumers, and the planet. We have a big story to tell, and I felt that this makes it difficult to digest. Maja helped me focus and get to the heart of our solution. Together we developed a clear and concise story to convince potential clients and investors that our mycelium — mushroom roots — fabric is here to inspire the fashion industry to adopt a truly sustainable supply chain.

Q&A Call

How often should we meet?

Read more button

That is up to you. It depends on how often you would like to spar. I would say something between once per week to once per month. You determine the frequency of our coaching sessions. Well, we agree on one that fits us both.

If you are looking for a one-off session, then a 90 min strategy session is a better fit.  

Do I need to commit for a certain time?

Read more button

Nope. I suggest we agree on a frequency to start with, but you are free to stop or adjust the frequency at any time, depending on how much you want to talk about. I am here to listen, think along, and challenge you when needed.

How do I pay you?

I’ll send you an invoice at the end of the month for the number of coaching sessions we had that month.

Are all sessions exclusively online?

In principle, yes. But if you prefer to have coaching sessions in person, let me know. Let’s start with online to see if there is a click and take it from there.

How much can you help me?

It's fair to say that these sessions evolved naturally from working with people on building their personal or company brands. In most cases, brilliant entrepreneurs working in overdrive but starting to doubt themselves and slowly losing momentum. I found that a bit of common sense and external accountability is often all it takes to keep running.

But if you need more practical help with your personal or company brand, take a look at my training page or my company page: Tortuga Solutions.
