How to Find Joy and Confidence in Your Strengths with Jennifer StarnsApr 21, 2022
Do you have your own business? Does it bring you joy?
Are you thinking seriously about starting your own business and want one that brings you joy but need a push of encouragement?
Get ready for actionable inspiration from Jennifer Starns. She is a seasoned software turned career mentor to aspiring software consultants.
Over the past year, we've been working together on her business brand, positioning strategy, visual branding, website copy, and design. Plus, Jennifer just formally launched her coaching practice a couple of weeks ago.
Jennifer and I talked about her journey into business ownership and how she overcame this hidden challenge that many mid-career people face when starting their business - the expertise they formally created through their education and experience isn't the expertise they want to use to build a business.
On the surface, Jennifer's most logical business model was to start her own software consulting. But her heart wasn't in it because something else that she knew was meant for her related more to this informal expertise she developed alongside her formal expertise. Jennifer is great at mentoring other people, especially heart-centered, logical women, and equipping them for success as software consultants.
In this interview, you'll hear:
- How Jennifer discovered who she was passionate about serving
- How we unearthed Jennifer's superpower, which is different from her original career, and how it ignites her joy
- Why living in strength and joy by using your gifting goes beyond finding your strengths
- Jennifer's passion for serving her niche and how she uses her superpowers to meet these needs
- How the transformational process of creating Jennifer's brand spilled into the rest of her life
Today, Jennifer and I talk about how she got to this a-ha moment, the joy it created in her, and how that joy generated fuel and momentum to get her business launched and get outside her comfort zone and start marketing herself, which was very new for her.
