After many years of hard work and dedication, I have decided to bid farewell to my beloved Business Launch Prep School (BLPS). As of July 1, 2023, I will close BLPS and embark on a new journey by offering occasional coaching services. It has been an honor to serve my clients and audience, and I am grateful for all the memories we have shared during my time with BLPS.

Why I’m Closing Business Launch Prep School

With a heavy heart, I announce the closing of Business Launch Prep School, effective July 1, 2023. As many of you know, I’ve been a coach and consultant for many years, and I’ve had the privilege of working with incredible clients passionate about their businesses. However, as much as I love this work, I’ve realized it’s time for me to move on to a new chapter. Several factors have driven this decision, but my caregiver responsibilities and health are the primary reasons.

As you may know, I’m deeply committed to serving God’s will in all aspects of my life, and I feel called to use my talents differently. At this point in my life, I need to prioritize the needs of my loved ones and my well-being. Running Business Launch Prep School has been an incredible experience, but it’s also been incredibly demanding. Over the years, I’ve poured my heart and soul into helping my clients succeed, and I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished together.

However, the time has come for me to step in another direction and focus on what’s most important to me. While I’ll miss the daily interactions with my clients and audience, I’m excited for this new chapter in my life and the opportunity to continue coaching on a more occasional basis.

Thank you for your support and understanding as I embark on this new journey. It’s been an honor to work with everyone, and I look forward to staying connected in the years to come.

My Gratitude to Clients and Audience

As I prepare to close Business Launch Prep School and transition to providing occasional coaching, I want to express my deep gratitude to all of you who have been part of my journey. As a client and member of my audience, you have taught me so much about myself and how to serve you at a high level.
I feel privileged to have been present and involved in your startup successes and honored that you trusted me with your stress, confusion, and failures. Through consulting and coaching, I’ve been able to help many of you earn up to 4-5 figures per month from your coaching programs and businesses. At the same time, I’ve helped others decide if a coaching business was the right move for them at all.

But beyond the tangible results, what I treasure most about my time running BLPS is the personal connections I’ve made with each of you. It has been a joy to get to know you, hear your stories, and help you gain clarity in God’s Word and in what you want in life and business.

Thank you for trusting me to be part of your journey, sharing your dreams and goals with me, and allowing me to help you along the way. It has been an honor and a pleasure, and I look forward to continuing our work together in this new phase of my journey.

My New Journey: Occasional Coaching

Coaching has always been my passion. And even though I’m closing down Business Launch Prep School, it doesn’t mean I will stop doing what I love. In fact, I plan on continuing to coach in whatever way God allows.

Moving forward, I will be available for occasional private one-on-one coaching sessions, as well as small group facilitation for a single session or two. I will also be taking on more minor private coaching and consulting roles.

I believe everything happens for a reason, and I trust that this new chapter in my life is part of God’s will for me. While I’ll miss the daily interaction with my students at Business Launch Prep School, I’m excited for the opportunity to continue working with people in a more focused and personalized way.
Whether you’re someone I’ve worked with in the past or a potential new client, I want you to know that I’m here for you. Let’s work together to achieve your goals and find success in your endeavors.

Final Thoughts and Reflections

As I approach the end of my time running Business Launch Prep School, I am filled with mixed emotions. On the one hand, I am sad to say goodbye to this chapter of my life and the clients and audience members that have been a part of it. But on the other hand, I am excited about what lies ahead in my new journey of occasional coaching.

Throughout this process, I have been reminded of the importance of trusting God’s will for my business and life. Even though it can be hard to give up something you love, sometimes listening to that still small voice inside includes making tough decisions for a much better future. And I truly believe that God has something amazing in store for me.

To those of you who have been a part of Business Launch Prep School, whether as direct clients or as part of my audience, I want to thank you. Thank you for allowing me to be involved in your growth and victories and for trusting me to guide you through launching and growing your businesses.

As I look back on this chapter of my life, I am filled with gratitude for the opportunity to run Business Launch Prep School and provide consulting and coaching to so many incredible individuals. And I am excited to see what the future holds as I embark on my new journey of occasional coaching.

Thank you again for everything, and I look forward to staying in touch as we continue to pursue our dreams and follow God’s will for our lives.
