Just a year ago Lindsey Mango felt like she was lost. She felt a constant pull inside of her to do something bigger. She tried to ignore it because she believed that she couldn’t have it all, that no one was really “that happy”, but deep down she wanted it and believed she could have it! Then the right opportunity crossed her path at exactly the right time and flash forward to August 2016, she has never been more fulfilled, happier, and full of purpose. She wants to share that with everyone she knows now! How does she know that she can help you change your life? Because she has done it. Read our interview with the lovely Lindsey below…
What motivated and inspired you to start your own business?
The opportunity to impact people’s lives is what motivated me to start my own business and to live a life on purpose. It started with health and fitness coaching, which I feel passionately about because it has always been such a huge part of my life. Also, I once struggled so much to find balance in my lifestyle, so I want to help others. Through my fitness coaching I hired a life coach which elevated my understanding of what was possible and began living the most amazing life, which in turn lit a fire within me to help others on their journey.
Tell us about your business.
I am an online life and fitness coach. As a life coach I work with clients one on one or in group settings to live their most amazing lives. As a fitness coach I help people find balance on their journeys to fuel their bodies with healthy food and do workouts that they enjoy and fit their lifestyle. These two roles work hand in hand because creating a healthy body often starts with creating a healthy mindset!
What were the first few steps you took to get your business up and running?
I partnered with Beachbody when I signed up as a fitness coach and then hired a life coach who elevated my mindset to not only create the business of my dreams but life of my dreams and I felt inspired to help others do the same.
What has been the most effective way of raising awareness of your business and getting new customers?
Building relationships; I focus heavily on building strong relationships and attracting my ideal client by showing up in the world with high energy and connecting with as many people as I can.
What have been your biggest challenges so far?
I can honestly say that every challenge I have come across I view it from the perspective of “this is happening for me”. I am able to use every challenge as an opportunity to learn and grow and teach my clients and coaches from my own mastery. The biggest learning experience I have had is learning how to mentor people from very different vantage points.
How did you overcome these challenges?
I overcame these challenges by handling them head on, learning from the mistakes, and redirecting my approach when I needed to.
How do you keep motivated through difficult times?
I heavily rely on daily personal development and giving myself the growth I need to keep moving forward. I often listen to different podcasts, audiobooks, or read, along with working with my life coach.
How did you distinguish yourself from your competitors?
I separate myself from others by being authentically myself. I think everyone has an opportunity to attract the people they work best with if they show up as their true, honest selves. I have created my brand around the things I love and place value on and therefore I align very well with many of my clients.
