Confidence coaching for second-career entrepreneurs​

About Silver Hair Confidence Coach

I'm Joy.

Like you, I’m a second-career entrepreneur and I understand you chose this path because you think differently.

I think that way too so I get it. 

You’ve succeeded in your first career and you’re proud of what you’ve accomplished.

Now you’re ready to step into the world of entrepreneurship! 

No one needs a confidence coach until they do. While confidence is a trait of many successful entrepreneurs, almost every founder I know has been on the brink of failure or has failed. My specialty is helping second-career entrepreneurs move forward after all the dark nooks and crannies of fear and limiting beliefs have been explored through transformational coaching and research. I’m also a firm believer that confidence is built on spiritual faith which is at the heart of everything I do. After all, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13).

A little about me: I grew up as an introverted, quiet, shy book nerd and military kid whose dad was an Air Force Senior Master Sergeant. I played lead trumpet in the high school band, competed in varsity golf and tennis in college, traveled solo through many foreign countries in my 20s, and wrote my doctoral thesis on how Cold War leaders survive coups which got published into a book through Lexington Publishing. My business mantra is 'stop obsessing over what I want and focus on what other people need.'

What entrepreneurship means?

Have you heard that entrepreneurship means:

Sacrificing your personal life to work on the business.

Risking breaking the trust of family and friends who help you with bootstrap funding.

Facing rejection from investors on a daily basis.

Launching a product and running out of money and risking losing your home.

Having a product become successful only to have competitors take away the revenue/profit.

Having the product become obsolete due to technological advances.

So many things can go wrong and there’s hardly a place to go to get the support you need.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

You deserve a guide to help you grow your confidence and intellect through intuitive coaching and a step-by-step blueprint supported by research.
