Step Into Your Power As A Consultant And Coach with Jahaan Blake

2 - brand messaging & positioning 5 - thought leadership imposter syndrome Apr 28, 2022
 

Jahaan Blake explores how she let go of the "shoulds" and "ought to's" to become the champion of her dreams in today's conversation on "Owning Your Strengths."

I was Jahaan's first business mentor when she started her business. We worked through her brand positioning as a consultant to the sports industry who transformed front-line teams into brand ambassadors, which made logical sense given her experience working for the Red Sox, Dodgers, and the Cubs.

She did a fantastic job with her website copy, launched, and immediately got clients. And when we worked through her proposals, it hit her. This wasn't her dream business! Instead, she wanted to focus on this other expertise she developed alongside her formal career. Jahaan wanted to mentor high-achieving women who wanted to break into the industry.

So we got to work on pivoting her copy, and this business was born, and today she is crushing it!

During our talk, Jahaan was open about the fears she faced when starting her business. She even shared how to handle the well-meaning feedback that others give when dealing with normal fears and imposter syndrome from exploring things outside our comfort zones.

But my favorite part of our conversation is her philosophy of stepping into your power!

She has stretched her thought leadership by starting a podcast called "Game of her own," with over 200 episodes. 

Jahaan had to learn to step into her power and not do the safe thing that others might have wanted her to do to get to this place.

In this episode, you'll hear:

  • The definition of courage and how to cultivate it
  • The "aha" moment that made it clear to her the business she really wanted
  • How she is both an athlete and mentor and fuses those energies into a unique competitive differentiation in the market

On a personal note, before working with Jahaan, I was primarily focused on brand building for consultants. However, through our experience, I realized that many of my clients think they want to start a consulting business when they want to create a coaching business. That's when I began to focus on serving both consultants and coaches and changed my process to include coaching around this upfront.
