There I was...sitting at my desk, after a 4th business I tried to start had failed. All I could see flashing through my brain was "90%". 90% of businesses fail, and I was destined to be part of that 90%. Not too long after that day, I stumbled upon an online body language class and found it to be very intriguing. I had never really heard much about body language, except that you needed to have good posture, and I was absolutely blown away! Who knew it was SO much more than "good posture". I laugh now even thinking about how little I knew.
At first, I tested these skills on my husband and children, and it amazed me how little intentional tweaks in my body language could influence them to behave differently! I was hooked!
After a few weeks of using what I had learned, I started to receive comments from friends. "Something about you has changed...I can't put my finger on it, but you're different." It was during one of those conversations that I realized, when I was trying to build all of my previous businesses, I didn't have a business problem. I wasn't destined to fail in business. I had a people skills problem, and it was KILLING my businesses.
So, I started to obsessively study body language and human behavior. I devoured everything I could on the subject, and I started helping my close friends and family. I would teach them what I was learning, and they were seeing huge changes in their everyday interactions.
Fast forward, 5 years later, I became a certified body language coach, and have spent my time helping people in business learn these skills. If you would like to learn how to control your nonverbal message and improve the relationships you build with prospects and clients, reach out to me. I would love to help you.
