80/20 Coaching

Ask your life coach how to improve your churn rate. [blank stare] Ask your Executive Coach how to meditate [blank stare]. I work with founders, entrepreneurs, and executives every day to help them integrate every aspect of their lives.

Entrepreneurs experience unique challenges an average employee does not; self-doubt, overwhelm, stress, loneliness to name just a few. Then we realize the one thing we thought would set us free has actually begun hold us hostage. And worst of all – after we make our first million – we’re not much happier than we were before we started. 

If any of this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. Let’s chat!

Who Needs 80/20 Coaching?

The reality is we all need a coach; the trick is finding the right one at the right time. If you’re a startup founder or entrepreneur struggling with where to start or what to do next, I can offer a battle-tested framework for launching a startup. If you are struggling with physical and emotional stress, confusion, overwhelm, or despair I can offer a compassionate ear and practices to improve your physical, mental, emotional & spiritual well-being. So ask yourself, what kind of coach do you need now? 

Are you a good fit?

Everyone wants to change, the real question is how motivated are you to make that change truly happen? On top of that, are you willing to take a hard look inside and see your your personal life is affecting your business life…and vice versa. 80/20 may be a good fit if…

  • You’re a high functioning founder, entrepreneur or executives.
  • You’re willing to explore the integration (rather than separation) of your work and personal lives. 
  • You’re honest, open, and willing to change. 
  • You’re already relatively healthy and not dealing with significant emotional challenges or trauma.
  • You’re seeking accountability and willing to examine the consequences of your actions – or lack thereof.
  • You’re willing to explore compassion and vulnerability for yourself and others. 

What’s the process like?

You’ve probably  heard of the Pareto Principle but probably by another name…the 80/20 rule. Some sessions 80% of our time is spent working on your business. Other session, that 80% is dedicated to working on life outside your business. While every leader and session is different here is a general framework that will help outline our time together. 

1. Clarifying your needs.

The first step in the process is having a mutual understanding of what it is you need; both personally and professionally.

2. Assessing where you're at.
Next comes and assessment of where you’re at in the Product Founder’s Journey. We will look at both internal and external circumstances to help establish where you’re at.
3. Evaluating resources, options, and opportunities.
Once we know where you’re at and where you’d like to go, the next step is evaluating all the options you have to get there. These resources may include items such as time, energy & money as well as rest, diet, and meditation.
4. Document an action plan.
Developing and documenting a plan to achieve your goals is the next step in the process and will help you and I stay on course.
5. Motivation and accountability.
As your coach I will do my best to hold you accountability and provide motivation. This can be done through phone calls, emails, text messages, and our weekly coaching calls.
6. Course correction.
Using tools like progress reports and journaling we will both monitor your progress through the various stages of launching your startup.
7. Celebration and joy.
In the startup world, our goal post are always getting moved. With every new achievement, a new task is right around the corner. We will work together to pause and celebrate the important moments.

If you’re a business leader looking for more peace, joy, and freedom while you build and run the business of your dreams, look to one person to help you achieve it: Gv Freeman.
