What clients are saying:
Andrea challenged me to push past my comfort level. She helped me realize the major obstacles that got in the way of my success. She helped me get out of my own way.
Andrea offered ways for me to shift to being proactive in building a client base. This was my first experience of being coached. I liked the fieldwork Andrea and I chose for me to do. One of the most important understandings I came away with was how it is important to ‘finish business’ with a potential coaching client so that the guesswork is erased. Andrea offered a way for me to create clarity with prospective customers of my coaching services when finishing a complimentary session.
When I started at CoachU, I hired Andrea Novakowski as my Jump Start coach. I interviewed 4 other people before hiring Andrea. Andrea was my coach throughout the entire time I was enrolled and after I graduated. As a direct result of her coaching I successfully transitioned from the US Navy into an entrepreneur with a very successful coaching business.
Andrea is an exceptional mentor coach. She is extremely supportive as a coach yet still kept me focused on my goals. She held my vision when I became bogged down in details and that enabled me to refocus and ultimately achieve my goals. I cannot even begin to tell you all the goals I achieved by working with her. One of the major insights for me was that I needed time for working on my business as well as working in my business. The biggest shift for me however was that I work better and more productively when I pay attention to my personal foundation and self care. Through working with Andrea I am light years from when I began over 3 years ago. She is an exceptional coach and mentor. Andrea has my strongest personal recommendation as a mentor coach.
One of Andrea’s amazing talents is her ability to be extremely strong and hold her clients accountable in such a gentle manner. She didn’t let me get away with anything I was doing or telling myself that wasn’t congruent with my authenticity or what I said I wanted. During our time of coaching I was experiencing many changes which resulted in overwhelm and she encouraged me to treat myself gently. At the same time when I was in my own way she gave me a push to move forward. As a result I shifted from being a very busy, overwhelmed, human doing to a more peaceful, self-loving state of being and authenticity. I am certain that this shift made me more attractive to opportunities to develop my coaching business in a way that fits perfectly with who I am.
I will always remember Andrea telling me she wanted for me to really “play” in the coaching arena in a big way. I still am not sure how she knew …that was exactly wanted I wanted to do! She saw in me the desire to do whatever I do in a BIG way. Now just over a year later I am Vice President for a growing collaborative of coaches focused on building a business. This role is the perfect context for the focus of my coaching (Entrepreneurs, Business Development, Attraction and Balance.) My work with Andrea really helped me lay the foundation for the growing business I have today.
