When asked about a typical week as a transformational business coach, Lenore shares her secret to productivity — time blocking. Here’s a glimpse:

  • Mondays: Dedicated to writing her newsletter and managing business processes.

The Arsenal: Tools and Strategies for Growth

For Lenore, certain tools are non-negotiable in running Growth Warrior smoothly:

  • Calendly: For scheduling discovery calls with clients and prospects.
  • Dubsado: Handles client onboarding effortlessly.
  • Mailchimp & Buffer: Essential for email campaigns and social media management.
  • Canva: For creating visually appealing content.

Her strategy? Connecting with people through live events—either online or in person—fosters genuine relations and bonds, which in turn translates to business growth.

Productivity Hacks

Lenore’s tip on managing a hefty workload is to listen to your body and work with your natural flow. She keeps a reMarkable Tablet handy for late-night inspirations.

This method of time blocking and listening to her creative muse has seen her through, especially when moving from the highly structured corporate world to the unpredictable nature of solopreneurship.

Overcoming Challenges

Her biggest challenges are navigating unpredictable cash flow and the need to do everything by herself. Lenore emphasizes the importance of moving with the cycles of business and delegating tasks outside her zone of genius, such as bookkeeping, to focus on what she does best.

Celebrating a Decade of Empowerment

A significant milestone for Lenore and Growth Warrior was crossing the 11th year in business. This achievement not only stands as a testament to her dedication and passion but also marks a significant journey of learning, growing, and empowering others.

Advice for Aspiring Solopreneurs

To those standing on the brink of solopreneurship, Lenore offers some sage advice:

  • Know yourself and your strengths — and where you struggle.
  • Be comfortable selling yourself and promoting your services.
  • Understand your comfort with uncertainty and your risk tolerance.
  • Trust your intuition, but be ready to recognize when you need help.

It’s about understanding your uniqueness and your needs and structuring your business to support you fully.
