"When Madhura gently approached me about the possibility of coaching, I have to admit to more than a little hesitancy on my part. I was not in a fiscal position to take on a new expense, especially one that felt a little 'touchy-feely', but my business was in dire straits and I was willing to try literally anything to save it.
I'm glad that I tried this, because Madhura helped me to see that a lot of my issues were not with the business itself, but with my own mindset around it, and with my relationship to, and ideas about, money; "Well, we're in the middle of a recession, so every organization is struggling", "Well, no one really makes money in the first three years of opening a business anyways", "Well, maybe this business idea wasn't that good in the first place"... excuses and negativity were running the conversation and taking over my life.
It's true, I still struggle with that voice some days, but the impact that Madhura had on helping me hear and address it has been huge.
It really helped to have someone in my corner, who believed as much as I did in what I what I was trying to accomplish. She was present, accessible, genuine, and offered some really interesting and different advice about strategies and solutions, many of which I have put in place and have seen returns on. I went from being three months away from bankruptcy to planning an expansion in the course of about half a year.
I really do recommend meeting up with Madhura, seeing if you jive (you probably will, she's awesome) and making some plans to help her help you."
