Why Choose Delphinium Business Coaching?
Hi there! My name is Gemma and I’m the owner and founder of Delphinium Business Coaching. I started Delphinium with one vision and that was to help fellow female entrepreneurs achieve their business and lifestyle goals.
As a young girl I had one career goal and that was to become a solicitor. Yes, I admit it! It was the likes of Matthew McConaughey in 'A Time To Kill' and Tom Cruise in 'A Few Good Men' that originally ignited my passion for the law, but my passion didn’t fade when I began my studies and went on into the big bad world of practicing.
In my mid-twenties I achieved my goal and qualified as a solicitor. Great! I had achieved a goal that I had spent years striving for. I was proud of myself and I felt that I had chosen the right career for me. I spent the next ten years in the legal sector, during which time I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work in a number other roles. These roles included performance management, process improvement, coaching and mentoring, staff engagement and training.
Although I remained passionate about the law and all of my other roles that had come along with it, there was something missing. I had no clear goals! I didn’t know what direction I wanted to move towards and all I was doing was moving away from what I didn’t want. I also became more and more unhappy with the inflexible working practices, long hours and the lack of a work/life balance. And then, it happened! That light bulb moment when the clouds clear and you know exactly what you want. I wanted to work for myself, be my own boss and have the flexibility that comes along with it.
So why Business Coaching? The answer to that question is easy…Business Coaching is what I’m more passionate about that anything else! I love nothing more than working with people, providing encouragement and support to help them to achieve things they never thought they could. Had I known back in my mid to late twenties what I now know about coaching, I have no doubt that employing the services of a Business Coach would have resulted in me setting and achieving the goal of starting my own business much sooner.
Since starting my own business I have loved every minute and feel truly blessed to be one of the few people who is excited to get up in the morning and start work. With an ever increasing number of women setting out on their own journey and starting their own business, I wanted to provide these women with affordable coaching to help them achieve their own business and lifestyle goals.
I’m living my dream and I want you to be living yours!
Why you need a business coach
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
