#24: Coach knows best - investment, strategy and mindset Let's Talk Startups

    • Entrepreneurship

A good coach can change a life, but a great coach can build a business out of it! This week, we’re bringing you one who can do both – oh, and she was a professional volleyball player too. Impressed yet? There’s more…

In an age of self-love and self-improvement, there is a high demand for life coaches. Founder of ‘RD Coaching and Consulting’, Rasa, knows from personal experience what impact a good coach can have. She has combined this experience of supercharging her life with her extensive knowledge of consulting and finances, to create: ‘RD Coaching’. It’s a company that knows that extraordinary results come from an extraordinary mindset.

Most people think that success is 80% strategy and 20% mindset, but Rasa is here to tell us exactly why that’s not the case. She reminds us that working on ourselves is the hardest but most reliable investment of them all, because if you believe you can do it then you probably can. Whilst we’re on the subject of investment: Rasa has loads (and we mean LOADS) of insights that you cannot miss. With a career history in finance, she has experience in mergers, acquisitions and valuations – and, fortunately for our listeners – she’s willing to share all her insider tips.

If you’re a number-cruncher, you can rely on Demos Demetriou to bring all the practical and financial questions. He’s sussing out how to get valuations when you have no business-history, why exactly it is that founders don’t always hear back from investors and more! However, when Nargis Jafferali smells determination like Rasa’s, you know she can’t help shaking it up a bit! Ever wondered what a successful business woman would do with a dolphin? Probably not, but we bet you’re wondering now!

We know that startups aren’t always straightforward. Everyone wants a unicorn business, but the reality is often a bit less soft and fluffy. When the going gets tough, it’s important to hear from someone who recognises the difficulties you’re facing, whilst also offering experienced advice. Rasa is brimming with it, which is why she connects so well with her clients, particularly with female entrepreneurs. She believes that no one needs a life coach, but that anyone could benefit from one; this honest but passionate approach is what makes her business so evidently remarkable.

So, if you’re ready to learn about the financial realities of investment, the business side of coaching, or just about the right thing to do when a dolphin turns up on your doorstep, listen now! Let’s talk startups!
