Hi, I’m Joanna Lott, a Business Coach who is passionate about teaching other women how to build their own profitable coaching business, so that you have the impact, income and freedom you want. I run a mentoring programme to help you to do just that.
Like so many others, I didn't know what I wanted to do for a career. My parents encouraged me to get a nice steady office job, so that's exactly what I did.
I learnt a lot about people and business through my 20 years working in governance and HR. But it took me many years to find what I was really interested in doing. In the meantime, I was working in London where I had achieved success but deep down I knew I was in the wrong place.
I kept looking for work where I would feel fulfilled and make the impact that I wanted to have.
My daughter was due to start school and I knew with school hours, and two separate drops for her and my son, that I wouldn't be able to get to and from London.
I took a backwards step, as sadly so many women do, and applied for a part-time admin job at a coach training organisation.
I then realised that I couldn't make it work, so politely declined saying I couldn't help but apply as I loved the sound of coaching. They agreed that I could retain my current HR job and work in the evenings and weekends in return for the ILM L7 in Executive Coaching and Mentoring training course.
Fate was at work!
I gained my ILM L7 in Executive Coaching and Mentoring (I've since added the ICF ACC accreditation), quit all of my jobs and now am fortunate to get paid to do work I love.
I have felt exhilarated and empowered by being able to run my own business doing what I love, and making it work around being there for my children.
I am passionate about teaching other women how to build their own profitable coaching business so that you have the impact, income and freedom you want. That is why I have devised a full mentoring programme to give you all the tools you need to do just that.
I believe that we are all here for a reason.
My superpower is breaking down complex ideas into simple steps.
I seek out ways of supporting others to make money by doing work they love.
I believe in fun, kindness and abundance.
I value connection.
I love learning about all things personal development, business and spiritual and sharing my discoveries with others.
I want to contribute to a world where women pursue their ambitions, speak up, and build brilliant businesses.
I know that things are more fun when you do them with others. I look forward to working with you!
