Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to start your coaching and consulting business?
Yes, thank you Sarah. I was tired of my F&B position and I couldn’t see myself doing this for the rest of my life so I asked myself one day what is that one thing that would make me happy and which could provide me joy and make an impact in people’s lives.
It was like I sent a message to the universe and the answer came in the form of my colleague Jan telling me: “Boris, you should be a life coach you helped me and a lot of people I know… I wanted to say No… but then I got a Flash thru my eyes seeing a lot of people that came to me to thank me for helping them.
I realized that this was the sign and the answer I have been searching for. I couldn’t let that thought go and soon after I searched and found the best Training from the best Trainer (Tony Robbins) applied, started my journey and got certified as a strategic interventionist.
How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Well I did not know from the beginning what was my superpower. Through meditation and my coaches Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi I discovered that I can feel, hear and see the barriers that some people have while they try to become successful and happy. This is my superpower.
With how many people do you work with usually?
Currently I have an Online coaching group up to 10 people and max five private clients at one time. With that I host masterminds for up to 150 people once a month. Hopefully this COVID 19 challenge will be soon over and I can host masterminds again in person instead online.
What advice would you have for other new entrepreneurs?
First and foremost, always, always, always believe in yourself and trust your gut. Be aware of the people with whom they are spending time because with who you surround yourself with is who you become. Make your customer’s priority, not your product ideas.
There’s only one way to really succeed long term — and it’s simple but it’s true, it’s to add more value for the customer than anybody else can by falling in love with your customer, not your product. Build a relationship with your customer and it will return to you in a much bigger way. They must find something they want to live for that’s bigger than themself—a mission—whether it’s their children, a business, a non-profit, whatever. That will push them to achieve. It’s not enough to have a strategy for success.
A great strategy is available for free online for everything from career success to meeting the One. They must also tell themself the right story. The “I’ve tried everything” story ensures failure. They must create an empowering story that recognizes that everyone has failed a lot but successful people have found a way to get up again until they succeed.
What are your major services and how can people benefit from it?
I offer life coaching, masterclasses & business consulting one on one, online, in person and groups. The benefits for my clients are that we discover and successfully remove barriers like, limiting beliefs, fear, depression, anxiety, lack of inspiration, effective communication, relationship challenges, limiting priorities and time management.
If you were given another chance to choose your career field, what would you choose?
I would choose the same path that I am now on. I wouldn’t change a thing in my life. This makes me happy, this is not a job, this feels right, I get excited. When I help my clients I experience fulfillment. I wouldn’t wanna change that for anything. Once you find that, you can´t let that go.
Who supported you the most in your life?
Besides my parents and my sister it was and still is my wife Jelena. She is always there, she is my life coach, my rock, and my inspiration. Without her I couldn’t call myself a strategic interventionist. She knows me better than I know myself.
Which books do you read and recommend to get inspiration and motivation?
That is a good question. My book called transwording provides just that. Inspiration, motivation and most important transformation. I only read, watch and search for content that brings me knowledge which I can implement into my life and the life of others. So personal development books are what I recommend to anyone who wants to get inspired and motivated. I am currently reading unshakeable from Tony Robbins.
How do you manage your time for life and business?
I am an expert when it comes to time management and this knowledge will be given in my next book. During the unprecedented times of lockdown and COVID-19, providing free coaching to those most in need – there is no higher purpose, and that is something that keeps me busy while I am not coaching, writing or creating. In fact I have also given lots of free content on social media that is usually high priced for removing fear. Every minute is planned out so I can use the 24 hours at max while still being with my family, friends and clients.
What are your future plans?
Currently, working on my online courses for personal development.
I want to contribute to our society with my online courses and books so everybody will have the chance to become successful and happy in whatever they choose to do in life. So the programs are first for the adults as well for our children who will be hereafter us taking care of each other and our planet.
