Before Berni launched her coaching practice in 2008, she managed a multi-million dollar territory of Fortune 500 companies in a corporate sales job.
At the time she thought she had the whole world in the palm of her hands, until she dug a bit deeper, realizing she was deep into a job (and lifestyle) that sucked the lifeblood right out of her.
The day she stopped chasing someone else’s dream—kicking her corporate job to the curb—is the day she started to spark people and movements as The Shin Kicking Life Spark.
If you are dying to bust a move and make your way in the online kingdom, you'll love this interview. If you've ever thought about making a big change, but are hesitant to start, Berni will be your spark.
Some questions I ask:
What is Ruth Stone's writing process? (This includes details on Elizabeth Gilbert's amazing TED speech, "Your Elusive Creative Genius.")
What does the life of a coach entail? Describe your typical client and describe how you help them?
If someone wants to start a speaking career, where do they begin?
How does one get past fear and uncertainty (daily)?
What happened with your initial book "fails?" And why is your latest book, "The Year of the Brave Bear," so different?
You’ll also learn about:
Details on her book “The Year of the Brave Bear: Speak Up. Stand Out. Change Your World.”
How to find your why, even if you think you're the most boring person in the world.
Why Chris Brogan (she calls Chris her cousin) and AJ Leon are great role models.
Details on her moment of reckoning.
Why clarity is key, and more.
