Tell me a little about you, your lifestyle and what you are passionate about?I’m passionate about raising my son, enjoying nature, writing, people and all the arts – performing, visual and plastic.
So tell me about your business, who/what is LifeGPS all about? I founded & created LifeGPS, an integrated coaching system of freedom for body, heart & mind because of all the suffering and powerlessness I found in people, even so-called powerful people.
I wanted to give them a product to help them free their small mindedness as they went through mid-life crisis, divorce, career change, stress or indecision making.
What inspired you to make the decision to create your own business? This is my 3rd business. What inspired me for LifeGpS was my the disharmony in my life. My husband and I split and after a hiatus of 7 years, raising my son and having sold my former publishing company, I needed to get on my feet again.
Has there always been a burning desire inside you to create this, or did your business evolve from your original idea?
My businesses have always evolved from original ideas. I specialize in taking abstract concepts and making them practical. Delivering ideas to form.
What did/do you find to be the most challenging part of your business? Having no funds to begin with. What have you learned about yourself during the process of setting up your business?
Patience is a virtue. Belief in myself and product offerings will get me through the toughest of times. Not allowing anyone or anything to get me off course. Taking time to get clear on who my clients are is crucial to attracting those clients. The knowledge I had about technolgy was 10 years old.
What advice would you give someone considering starting their own business?
First go with your passion, whatever that is. Do not allow the competition, a perceived lack of resources or skills hinder you. Develop your concept to the finest detail.
What products and services do you provide? I offer transformational coaching packages in person or Skype, an at home course book, downloadable meditation CDs and retreats in the USA and abroad.
What is the greatest success story for your business? The healing, rejuvination and enthusiastic lives of my clients. Please see the Gratitudes page of my website http://184.108.40.206/~elise/gratitudes/
