If you’re here, it’s probably because you know Facebook, Instagram and the rest aren’t cutting it when it comes to connecting you with your target audience and ideal clients.
You know your target audience are on LinkedIn; you want to connect with them, but you don’t know how to go about doing this. You’ve heard people tell you that LinkedIn is the place to be as a professional woman, but you still have some doubts as to whether you can actually get tangible results from the time you spend on the platform.
And, if we’re really being honest, there’s a small part of you that’s a little afraid of putting yourself “out there” on LinkedIn. You know it’s important for you to be visible, but the idea of showing up and sharing your real self is a little intimidating – I mean, how will people react, right?
I’m here to help you
As your LinkedIn Visibility Coach, my job is to help you leverage LinkedIn to raise your profile, build your personal brand and advance your career or business.
I particularly enjoy working with coaches to help you attract your ideal clients and build a profitable coaching business that gives you the lifestyle of your dreams.
My clients tend to be:
✔ High-level professional and executive women who want to develop and express their thought leadership on LinkedIn (and beyond) to attract more career development opportunities.
✔ Women who have recently made, or are about to make, a transition from employee to business owner and need to build their personal brand and presence on LinkedIn.
✔ New and established coaches who have yet to land their first paid client and need assistance niching down and forming their brand message.
✔ Experienced businesswomen who have built relatively successful businesses offline and now need to familiarize themselves with online networking and social media platforms
Wherever you are in your visibility journey, I'm here to help you through the process.
My own journey into coaching and pursuing my dream lifestyle in this way wasn't exactly easygoing.
Five months before I launched my coaching business in January 2020, I was in hospital. I had just started a new contract a few weeks prior to that, working with the Air Ambulance as their Communications Manager.
I loved the job and I had plans of really growing into the role and heading up the entire Communications department within a year (I set big goals!).
But what my new colleagues didn’t know was that I was secretly battling with a health challenge and had been for the last three months.
I woke up every day with an intense crippling pain in my head and neck that would suddenly grip me for two to five minutes at a time, multiple times a day.
I had tried everything from medication (useless) to osteopathy (some benefit), but the pain didn’t go away. Everything eventually came to a standstill one day on the 2nd of September 2019 when I collapsed in my work car park and woke up in hospital.
What I thought would be a quick in and out job ended up being a diagnosis of brain tumour and me spending the entire month of September at St George's Hospital in London, which included a six-hour surgery and three days in intensive care.
It took another two months of recovery before I was able to walk again without blacking out or fainting, and a further six months before I was allowed to drive again.
I missed many important occasions that month in hospital, including my older daughter’s first month at primary school and my 12-year wedding anniversary, but lying in that hospital bed for those four weeks gave me a clear perspective on many things.
A wake-up call
The brain tumour was a wakeup call that helped me to see and design exactly the kind of life I wanted.
I saw that full-time employment wasn't going to help me achieve my goal, so in January 2020, I said goodbye to my previous working life in Journalism, PR and Communications and made the transition to coaching.
Fast-forward to today, I’ve now been able to create the lifestyle I dreamed of on that hospital bed, through my LinkedIn coaching business, and I now teach other women how to leverage LinkedIn to do the same in their professional lives - whether that's through a business or a career.
You too can thrive on LinkedIn
Leveraging LinkedIn is how I’ve been able to build a profitable coaching business and create the dream lifestyle I’m living now.
No, this isn't a life where I drink champagne every day and party on yachts, it's a lifestyle where I get to spend regular quality time with my husband and two daughters, take care of my health on a daily basis, and generate a good income that more than sustains my needs.
Whatever dream lifestyle you set out to achieve for yourself, you too can make it a reality when you learn to leverage LinkedIn visibility to build your personal brand.
You don’t need a brain tumour, or any kind of adversity, to serve as a wake-up call if you’ll voluntarily choose today to start designing - and living - the life of your dreams.
With the right foundations and the right coach beside you, your work life can take you from where you currently are in life to where you want to be.
And you only need to master one platform to make this a reality – LinkedIn.
Take the next step
