About Me & My Practice

Are you at your wits end, tired of tossing and turning at night trying to figure out how you can turn your business image or income around? Or maybe you haven’t started your business because you’re not convinced that you can actually earn a living doing the one thing you’re most passionate about. My specialty is helping people just like build memorable brands that solve problems and fill a demand.

Not My Original Plan or Plan B (for that matter)

After college, I had a serious rude awakening. If I had known that a Marketing degree would equate to starting in sales, I probably would have went to law school (we can be honest here, right?). Growing up I was a serious introvert, I only opened up to a select group of friends. I was the girl in all honors classes, didn’t care about partying, the latest fashion trends or anything else that would make it difficult for me to focus on school (a nice way to say nerd, lol).

Being a coach or speaker was definitely not on my to-do list. As a matter of fact, I still remember the public speaking class in college that nearly gave me a heart attack. Standing in front of a group and having to deliver a message was not my thing, I wanted to be the girl behind the scenes.

After college, I had some great opportunities working for some amazing companies that include Ford, American General, Autotrader and DHL. The last job I had was with DHL, when the location I was working at closed, I decided to test the entrepreneurship waters. I opened a virtual assistant business (Apex Virtual Solutions) in 2007 that provided administrative and creative design support for service based companies.

I worked with too many companies to count; small and medium, providing services like website design, online research, marketing support and sometimes general administrative services. Many of these companies would come to me with questions about their brand, how to gain traction and how to increase revenue. I found myself giving away a ton of free advice that was proven valuable and not being properly compensated for it. I was in business for almost 10 years before realizing that my compensation, while good, wasn’t close to the results I was providing for my clients.

I’ll admit that I was hesitant in the beginning, questioning myself; not sure if I was ready. I had a serious mental tug of war going on. So what caused the shift in my thinking? The first thing that tilted the bar was a list I created. The list had two columns, one column was all the reasons I shouldn’t become a coach and the other side was a list of reasons why I should pursue coaching. Needless to say the pros out-weighted the cons, but it didn’t stop there. After getting confirmation from my list, I talked to my mentor and coach. She said that I’d be selfish in not sharing my gifts with the world and felt that I had a voice in the industry that needed to be heard. Finally after much prayer and further mental deliberation, I decided to open my coaching business and build my personal brand. And in a nutshell, I took a deep breath and exhaled life into trenavstubbs.com.
