Jon Bischke –
Overcame His Fears and Founded Another Startup
Jon has always been highly motivated and a high achiever.
Right from the beginning of our work together he aspired to great dreams
which were equal expressions of creating an abundant life for himself and
serving the world’s most dire needs. It was clear to me at the beginning
that Jon was already a world-class leader and businessperson, and despite
a few limiting beliefs, we both knew that Jon would succeed in any
endeavor he took on. Specifically, his entrepreneurial nature has always
guided him to create new businesses that examine global problems and solve
them on a global scale.
What held Jon back the most was his fear: of rejection, of public speaking (e.g., pitching to investors), and fear of the unknown.
Armed with Tony Robbins’ urging, "If you can’t then
you must," we began to deconstruct old stories from Jon’s past, and
replace them with new beliefs. I challenged him on a continual basis to
take actions that betrayed those old beliefs, proving to himself that he
was capable of anything.
Since we began working together, Jon…
- has been skydiving — a longtime dream
- founded his 3rd start-up, Education Revolution (www.edurev.com) and raised over $100,000 in investment
- increased his personal salary 10-fold
- began a routine of twelve personal practices including meditation, visualization, and following an ultra-healthy diet, etc., that he hits consistently every week
- ran the California International Marathon
- conquered 95% of the fears that previously prevented him from acting on his goals
Of our coaching together, Jon says,
"Choosing to work with Robin has been one of the
best decisions I’ve made. His high energy level matches mine and he hasn’t
been afraid to challenge me in the areas I need it most. I’ve seen
remarkable improvements in a number of areas of my life and many of them
have resulted from distinctions I’ve made during my sessions with Robin.
If you’re serious about your life, I’d highly recommend a personal coach.
And once you make the decision to hire a coach I’d advise you to strongly
Found Her Calling in Life and
Her Own Business
Kristen was an actress in New York,
pursuing her dream of acting and singing on Broadway. She was working
hard, but like most in the business, she wasn’t seeing the results she
wanted. She was doing everything “right:” pursuing representation,
auditioning frequently, investing adequate time and money into her career.
The real problem, and what she didn’t realize, was that she was neglecting
important parts of who she was and forgot what she was going for. The life
she wanted wasn’t matching up with the life she was living.
Through our work together, Kristen realized what she
had really wanted all along was simple: an open loving relationship with
her husband, a house and yard, to create deep connection and honest
relationships with those around her, and have an impact on the world. In
2005, Kristen moved back home to Ohio with her husband and started her own
Administrative Assistant business. She has become so busy that she’s
brought in a partner to take care of new clients. She has all the business
she can handle, gets to pick the jobs she wants, and in her first year
earned thousands of dollars more than the sum of her entire 7-year acting
career. She is now training to become a professional coach and pursue her
dream of changing the face of education through Coaching. Kristen now
believes there’s nothing she can’t do, and her fears and worries about the
future have vanished.
Here’s what Kristen says about coaching with Robin:
"When I first started working with Robin, he asked
me to write down my dream life. Since then, I’ve created a life that is
even more amazing than I ever could’ve imagined at that time. Robin
provides a safe place for me to dream, learn and grow on this amazing life
journey. He allows me to be who I am without judgment. Robin is
compassionate and caring when I need that AND he’s also been known to
bluntly call me on my “stuff” (usually followed by a big "Thank You" from
I am continually challenged by Robin to hold true
to what’s important, be who I am, and create whatever it is that I want to
create. As a result of my work with Robin, I am more prosperous,
successful, confident, creative, caring, bold and in tune with who I
REALLY am, than ever before. If things don’t seem to be matching up in
your life and/or business, I highly recommend hiring Robin to help you
find your unique path."
Became a Coach to CEO’s and Executives
Kristiina is now a bold,
passionate coach to CEO’s and other top-level executives. Kristina came from the corporate world and when we first started working together, had set her sights on coaching senior managers, and dealt with some serious self-doubt and fear that kept her from stepping fully into a larger business role. In addition, she was frustrated trying to build a thriving business while staying on top of her many home responsibilities.
Much of our work focused on developing new habits, including:
- focusing consistently on the higher vision she held for her life
- taking creative and courageous action toward that vision
- setting internal and external boundaries aimed at creating work/life balance
- remembering and celebrating her contributions and gifts for those around her
- giving herself permission take bigger personal and professional steps than ever before
Some of the results Kristiina has seen from working with Success Becomes You include:
- moving from part time coach/mommy to full time corporate executive coach; a major new client for her includes the CEO and other executives of a large nanotech company
- creating strategic partnerships with other coaches in Canada, Finland, and the US
- co-founding an executive/team coach of LifeworksConsulting.net, where she has co-written Merchants of Knowledge, a textbook for business schools and MBA programs
- tripling her business income
- becoming clearer on what business relationships to nurture and where to put time and energies
- becoming more content in her relationship between personal and work life
Of our work together, Kristiina says:
"Without the power of your coaching, I would have
been like a lost boat; I would have gotten to my goals, but not with the
heart. And keeping me accountable, you provide a compass by reminding me
who I am and where I’m going.
The power of your coaching is in your way of
asking great questions. You bring value even in the moments when I think
there’s nothing there. It turns on the light in my soul. You are
unwavering in your support, sometimes in the form of tough love, and what
you’ve been holding for me has been my deepest power. Your knowing what
I’m truly about has given me a safe haven to nourish myself and remember
who I am.
What I wanted to be when we started was to be a more effective coach. I got that and so much more. Thank you!"
Opened Her Own Wine Bar
Ellen is a vibrant young woman who had been in a corporate job for many years, feeling stifled and longing for personal and professional growth. Wondering what her purpose was, she hired me for whole life coaching.
Our process focused on defining what she really wanted and developing the belief and motivation that would make it easy to get there. We started with a vision, filling in the specific details, and removing the barriers that stood in the way of her success. As we worked together, she began to realize her natural entrepreneurial drive and talents.
Not long after she began coaching, for the first time in her life, Ellen quit putting everyone else first and invested her time and energy in herself. As she investigated her deeper longings and her strengths, she found courage, drive, energy, and self-confidence. As a result, she left her high-paying job to realize her long-time dream of owning her own wine bar. In 2005 she opened the Oak Park Abbey where she is currently the owner and operator.
Ellen says of her success and our coaching:
" What I love about Robin is his authentic, caring
soul. What I get from his coaching is the freedom to explore what might be
holding me back from being the person that I want to be. My sessions with
Robin are all about me. He gives support when I’m doing well, and doesn’t
hold back in asking the tough questions when I’ve strayed from my path. I
can count on Robin, with every conversation, to be curious and genuine in
his desire to help me move forward. "
