Meet Theresa Nguyen, owner of More Time More You. She is a successful entrepreneur business coach and mentor that will teach you to focus on the mindset as the foundation before we get into the strategy of building your business.
Tell us a little bit about your business?
I help primarily female entrepreneurs with home based businesses, look up to their fear so that they can turn their passion, or what they love to do into profit. I am primarily a mindset coach. I focus on the emotional blocks that keep people from moving forward with their businesses, whether it's confidence, feeling unworthy or undeserving, feeling like they are not experienced enough or don’t know enough about business in order to create something that brings in revenue. I focus on strategy with the program that I created but it's primarily, tackling mindset because that really is the foundation of any business. The mindset of truly believing that you can do it and giving them tools and the inner work completing that before we move on to the strategy parts.
How do you get started with this business?
I have a background in network marketing and I then with this company for four and a half years. I also have a background in nursing. I really felt like the combination of the two has really helped me to propel my business when I first started network marketing.
As a nurse we never imagined or do anything else besides taking care of patients or being in the health care field. I never imagined anything outside of that but with a lot of careers it is no fun working on the weekends or on the holidays and missing out. You miss the time that cant get back with your family and your loved ones. I was looking for a way to provide my family with more flexibility but still be able to create a significant income and I saw that in network marketing. Fast forward two years after that I was able to replace my husband’s in income. Then I realized that I could actually help and teach other people to be able to make income whether it's to replace their own or to provide some sort of flexibility like travel or go shopping without feeling guilty, or make their car payment, pay off their debt. I struggled a lot with confidence and trying to figure out how to run my business. I had no business background, so I felt like I was alone in doing this and I hired some high level coaches who helped guide me through the process and gave me the tools and confidence to build this business.
So what sets you apart from competition?
I believe what sets me apart is I don't focus on strategy because you can Google strategy. You can download it, you can go to webinars and get prospecting tips and all of those things. People always want to know about strategy when they create and start their business and so many entrepreneurs don't realize that there are so many emotional blocks that you are dealing with when you're creating your own business. You have to be aware of those issues first and address it and know how to flip the switch and create a better relationship with yourself so that when those fears start creeping up on you, you don't let it prevent you or paralyzed you from doing what it is that you're meant to do. I truly believe that everybody is here to do something amazing and whether or not you step up to that goal whether or not you step into your power is really up to you. I only take those people who are willing to step into that power and who are ready to work.
No matter if you are in Network Marketing are Sales what I teach isn't what you're taught by the company. I teach more about how to overcome both fears can paralyze you, and then how to attract your clients versus the sort of stereotypical strategies that have been taught for so many years. Like when you go on Facebook it's like an advertisement of everybody’s businesses. I'm all about supporting small businesses but when you're scrolling and seven out of the ten posts are people posting about a product or a service it becomes a big turnoff. I also want to change the way people perceive Network Marketing. I didn't mean to actually market to network marketers but that seems to be the people that I am attracting right now. But that is find because I love the business and I love the people there they are very passionate and they have big goals.
I feel like that's what sets me a part is I really focus on the mindset as the foundation before we get into the strategy.
What five year plan and how do you plan to get there?
My five year plan is to truly live a laptop life. Right now I am a multitasking entrepreneur and I want at some point to slow down, and really be present in my life. I want to enjoy all the beautiful people and the things around me. I see my business expanding globally and not just limited to the U.S. An online business allows you to be able to reach all sorts of people all around the world so I do see myself having a worldwide impact.
How do you market your business?
Building online relationship and connecting and collaborating with other powerful entrepreneurs. There are these events called online summits that are popping up these days. I am doing one with a woman in London and then I have another one coming up in January. Collaborating with other female entrepreneurs and being able to spread my message that way online.
Do you have any other words of advice you can give other aspiring entrepreneurs?
A lot of people feel like everything has to be during the right time. Like whether they go on vacation, or whether they invest in something, or whether they start a business, or when they quit their but I wanted to add that you don't have to wait to get the things that you want. And you don't have to be that person who is just grateful for what you have, and go through the motions and play it safe. Anything really is possible and all of your desires are possible but it starts with really admitting what you want and sometimes you make what you want feel wrong. Like having money to be wealthy but without money you cant provide all the desires and the dream life that you want to have.
