In May of this year, I became the new CEO of the much-beloved leadership coaching consultancy, RevenueTribe. I feel honored and blessed to be given this opportunity to continue the work of my predecessor, mentor, and friend, Nora Abell, in transforming leadership from a place of scarcity and burnout to one of abundance and possibility, and helping driven entrepreneurs step fully into their purpose.
Before this work, I was a victim to my circumstances. I let my past and my pain define my future. I was bitter, I was hurt, and I was hiding all of it in my achievements, striving for things I didn’t really care about because that’s what I based my worth on.
I placed my worth in what I had because I didn’t know who I was.
This work changed my life in every way—my marriage, my business, my family, my finances, my spiritual life. This work allowed me a whole new perspective and gave me the practical tools to build the life I wanted.
It turns out buying a business isn’t easy. The past few months have been filled with attorney meetings, countless phone calls, and endless questions. Through it all, I learned to turn the uncertainty and nervous excitement into faith, and allow that faith to guide me. That faith is what kept me on track and helped me find my voice in the midst of the policies, procedures, and expectations.
There’s so much data in buying and selling a business, it’s suffocating. If you’re not strong in who you are, you’ll lose your sense of direction. The paperwork will kill your buzz. You have to be able to pull your own pain and negative limiting beliefs out of the legalese so you can see what your true north is, so you can remember what matters most.
When we look to external measures to protect us—contracts, policies, procedures, firewalls, alarm systems—that protection will only last so long. True protection is actually executing your vision and tapping into your own power.
The last few months were once again a reminder that when we’re not clear on what we want and what we’re called to do, burnout is inevitable. I only kept my sanity during this time by centering myself every single day on why I am buying this company: because I want to share this work with the world.
This company will go many places. At the heart of it all, we will always put our clients and relationships first. I am the product of what it looks like to care more about your people in business than the bottom line.
With that, I’m pleased to introduce RevenueTribe’s new name:
