Wendy Nolin – High Output Business Coach

Hey there! I’m Wendy – Possibilitarian, Liberating Professionals from the Status Quo. Thanks so much for stopping by my website for a visit. Here’s a quick video [only 2 minutes] so I can introduce myself, or you can skip the video and read a little about me in the bio below.

Coach

When I was a little girl, I would come home from school and tell my mom I wanted to grow up to be a teacher. I loved school so much I would play “school” with my dolls. I loved learning, but more than that, I loved teaching! [My step-mother said I was more of a ring leader than a teacher in my teen years…] It took a few decades to finally remember my childhood love and build a successful business doing what I do best. Here’s my story:

My dad sat me down at the kitchen table when I was 14 with the purpose of discovering what I wanted to do when I graduated. My favorite thing to do at that age was travel. Most of our family vacations consisted of driving somewhere we’d never been every summer. We visited all the states along the Eastern seaboard and eventually made it out to The Grand Canyon. As a result, I decided I wanted to be in the travel industry; explore foreign lands, meet interesting people, and get the hell out of the tiny town where I grew up in southwestern PA!

I did just that, working in the travel industry for nearly a decade. I retired from my first career with Alaska Airlines when I was 26. Yes, you read that correctly… retired!

My next gig was B2C sales, moving into management after only a year when my leadership abilities blossomed. Not only did I excel at sales, I excelled at training and coaching my sales teams. My last team set a sales record at a 95-year-old company, operating at a profit within 18 months of opening a brand new location in a brand new market.

Despite our success, I thirsted for more professional development. My sights were set on an executive position with the company, but I wasn’t receiving the next level of support or direction to satisfy my desire for advancement. So I hired my first coach. My whole world transformed as I developed professionally with the objective perspective of a coach. I advanced faster than the company could promote me, so I hired another coach to help me figure out the next step in my professional journey.

My second coach helped me achieve the Career Trifecta: I figured out what I was good at, that I like to do, that people will pay me for – coaching. My childhood love of teaching finally emerged as a viable profession.

I started my coaching business in 2008. It was a rocky start with plenty of starts & stops. In the beginning I struggled, spending money on all the wrong things and falling for every slick advertisement promising to help me build my business. None of them worked! I lost so much money I put my business on hold in 2009 when I was hand-picked by the CEO of a growing firm to run her coaching division while she built out the software division.

In hindsight it was a brilliant decision because I was paid to learn how to run a business while mentored by a master coach!

In 2012 I re-launched my coaching firm, applying everything I learned to my own business. In the process I learned…

My 3 key differentiators:

1. I’m good at sales AND coaching [rare in the coaching business]
2. I relate to the challenges of not knowing how to grow a business – I’ve made all the mistakes and spent money on all the wrong things.
3. I’m a product of the product – I work with a business coach, mastermind group, and therapist. [My Board of Directors]

 

My vision is to help more business owners and biz dev professionals sell themselves and their services to more of their favorite kind of clients.

I am a coach because I want to help You experience the success of investing in yourself to build a thriving, sustainable, resilient business – to succeed at work and win at life.

Here are the values I serve you with:

Accountability

– to you and my Board of Directors. And I hold you accountable to your agreements. What kind of coach would I be if I didn’t?

Authenticity

– to you, me, and my Board. I reveal my vulnerabilities and failures so you don’t make avoidable mistakes.

Care

– for you; your well-being, your family, your business. I advocate and adhere to self-care. It’s the only way either of us can truly show up and be the best version of ourselves.

Clarity

– of your vision, values, purpose and what’s important to you.

Commitment

– to being, doing, and giving you my best in our every interaction. And commitment to my craft; to constant and never-ending improvement as a coach.

Focus

– on consistently moving the needle forward every session with actionable strategies to achieve your desired outcomes.

Results

– more revenue, more profit, more income, more enjoyment in your work, more time with your family and friends, and in a fraction of the time it would take you to achieve on your own.

It’s been said, to become a master or expert at anything, you must do that thing for 10,000 hours. I have coached more than 300 clients, exceeding 12,000 coaching hours to date. I coach business owners and biz dev professionals to smash through their sales and revenue goals, C-level executives who need strategic thinking partners, and managers who want to develop into inspiring leaders.
