Today I’m speaking with Kiki Smith was a housewife for 15 years before she decided to start her own business and turn it into a coaching empire. She learned to ditch the get-more-followers grind of the fitness industry in pursuit of the true freedom she was seeking.
Her goal is to help underpaid fitness professionals prioritize, strategize and streamline their businesses, so they can stop chasing likes, make $$$ online, and be so absorbed in LIVING their best life that forget to post about it online.
I LOVE Kiki’s approach because it is so much like mine - we want our clients LIVING their lives, not feeling like they need to be posting content 24/7.
It seems like Kiki and I both live by the same principles - making your business fun and doing the least amount of work to yield the best results. Now some people LOVE work so they won’t resonate as much with this philosophy, but for those of you who want to LOVE what you do, but don’t want it to take over your lives, listen in to this episode.
I appreciate Kiki’s perspective because she’s been coaching for many years now, growing her business getting coached from one mentor to the next. But something we discuss in this episode is how we often emulate our mentors’ businesses, without ever stopping to think “WHAT DO I WANT?”
And that can lead to burnout and some disastrous businesses. So the key we share is to emulate, then reflect, then take action on what YOU truly want. Don’t re-invent the wheel, DO what your mentors do, but then reflect and keep what YOU want, leave the rest behind.
We also talk about how Kiki was able to start and grow her business really successfully just using online forums and chat rooms essentially to communicate with her audience.
You guys...STOP MAKING IT HARDER THAN IT IS! Clients are everywhere! They are WAITING for you to pop in on the conversations they’re already having. So find where they are, and share your value with them there! Where the conversation is ALREADY happening!
We also talk about how Kiki made the transition from housewife and mom to successful coach in this episode and the tough conversations that she had with her husband and family to make it work. This is a POWERFUL interview for all your mompreneurs and moms turned coaches out there. You don’t want to miss these tips from Kiki!
