I’ve been a fan and follower of Emily Dawn since I started checking out Facebook Groups for Entrepreneurial Women. Emily is an online business coach who helps women service providers confidently grow their businesses. She has created a business that allows her ample freedom and flexibility as well as financial independence while helping women to grow their businesses and share their talents with more people (kinda like me!).

When did you start your business, and why did you create it?
I shifted to online business coaching in 2020. I originally came online as a comprehensive Pilates instructor. As I began to learn the ins and outs of social media marketing and growing a successful service-based business online, I became addicted to learning about communication, sales strategy, etc. I ended up helping other female service providers online grow their business during my spare time. As I began to receive such positive feedback for my business guidance, I started getting asked about my business services, which I was not offering at the time. I felt a pull in the direction of serving other online female entrepreneurs and took the full leap and have not looked back since. I love being able to create my own schedule and work from anywhere. That is freedom to me. I believe everyone should live a life they love and not dread Mondays. Seeing my clients impact their clients lives fuels my passion to keep serving, a positive chain reaction. I do what I do to show others that you can love what you do while becoming financially independent.
Tell us about your business and what makes you unique in your field.
I believe my ability to connect with various people from all walks of life allows me to attract powerful women into my network. Experiencing solo travelling over the last three years has allowed me to grow as a person and increase my skill set quickly. I believe my non-traditional way of learning marketing and sales has allowed me to stand out online. I deliver my coaching services and programs in a way that connects deeply to my audience and encourages rather than discourages. I have had various challenging experiences throughout my travel such as being a sales representative (where I was the only english speaker), learning door-to-door sales, attending “how to pitch” workshops and growing my own business from the ground up. I often refer to my 3T method for business/life goal setting and my Cold to Client five-step framework to help my clients stay laser-focused and work towards their vision.
What do you feel makes your audience special?
My audience is not just a number, but they are all unique individuals looking to lift each other up rather than view everyone as competition.
If you could magically give all of your community members one thing in this world, what would it be, and why?
I wish I could give all my community members self-belief. Self-belief allows you to work towards and embrace your full potential. And when you have confidence in yourself and your offer, you become unstoppable.
What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about starting their own business?
Don’t wait to get started. The longer you wait to take action, the longer it will be for you to see results. Invest in yourself and your business to grow efficiently and receive support along the way. The journey is best when it’s done with the RIGHT company.
If you could go back in time and do something differently, what would you do and why?
If I could go back…I wish I were entirely myself unapologetically. Not allowing the fear of judgement to hold me back from sharing all that I have to offer.
If you don’t share your values and truth, how are “your people” supposed to find you?
Showing up the way you want others to show up. There is a direct reflection of what and who you attract into your life and business.
Do you have an email list? If so, did you start it when you launched?
Yes, I have an email list, and I started growing my email list right away through my Facebook group and free offers!
Is this your only job? Did you launch your business while working another job?
Yes, I am a full-time business coach. I transitioned my online pilates services to business coaching while living abroad.
Who are your favorite bloggers or podcasts right now? Or what is an influential book that you’ve read lately?
I am a YouTube watcher! Two channels I have been loving recently are Project Life Mastery and Sorrelle Amore Finance.
Is there anything else you’d like to share?
The choices you make now are a reflection of your future. So if you want something, take action today that gets you at least one step closer.
