Today I want to share a story with you about someone who has walked through the fire to create a successful business.
Before Boldheart, Suzanne was bullied by other coaches and treated poorly by other members of their programs. She remortgaged her house to join us, and while she’s been with us, she’s fought against breast cancer.
Despite all of these challenges, Suzanne has come out the other side “stronger than ever” (as she shares in her recent interview with me), making more in a single month than an entire year’s worth of revenue from years prior. Here’s Suzanne’s inspiring story of transformation:
“When I first joined Boldheart, I was really struggling. I was determined to do it on my own. I would wake up every day and not get to my office until about 10 o’clock because I didn’t know what to do first. I wasted time. I watched a lot of TV. I wasn’t marketing effectively. I was getting clients out of luck and there was no plan or process.
I had been part of other coaching programs and had some terrible experiences. One of the coaches actually bullied me. I would ask a question on the Q&A and she would say, ‘Oh Suzanne, you should know that.’ This one time when we did a test and I didn’t do it perfectly, my coach came up to me, leaned down and screamed at me in front of twenty people, ‘You fail!’
This experience made me hesitant to hire another coach. I pulled back, I hid, and became invisible. I was also hesitant to spend that kind of money again. I thought to myself, ‘What’s going to be different about this?’
Fabienne, you had to jump through a lot of hoops before I was willing to hire you. (I’m so glad I did.) One of the things I’ve always loved is that you provide a lot of valuable content. Even in the programs that I’d done, their content didn’t move me forward like the content that I got from you.
In my first Boldheart meeting, I came in with a lot of armor on. I pushed everyone away because I’d been hurt so much before…not only by the people that I’d been coached by, but by the people in the program. But the Boldheart Business members just kept loving on me and they kept showing me how great I am. And I kept thinking, ‘I can’t believe this.’
Then I started getting results in the program. Fabienne, I do everything you tell me. If you hold up a book online and say, ‘Read this book,’ I go do it.
This month I will make more money than I did in all of 2014. All of 2015.
So I joined the program at the end of 2017. Everything was great and then I got the news. You have breast cancer. You have a 1.3 centimeter lump. We need to take it out. One of the greatest things about this community is that everybody was like, ‘Okay, what do you need? What can we do? How can we help?’
Fabienne, you carved out time from your calendar to talk to me and you gave me the wisdom I needed. I believe it was something to the effect that this (the cancer) was happening for me. You said to me, ‘What can you learn from this?’ I continued to do my business and grow it and get through my treatments. And then I took a little bit of time off because I needed to do that and came back stronger than ever.”
When I asked Suzanne what she did to get into the program, this is what she said…
“I remortgaged my house. I talked to my husband and said, ‘I need to be in integrity. I need to offer my services. I need to invest in myself and my success, and I will figure it out.’ And he said, ‘We will figure it out.’
So if you’re thinking about joining the program but you’re wondering where the money is going to come from…here’s what I want to say. I’ve watched it happen over and over again in my own business and in my life that when you make that commitment to yourself and to the universe, the money appears every single time.”
I want to share a message with you that I think speaks to Suzanne’s story perfectly…
