Your Start-Up to Scale-up Mindset Coach from Portsmouth: Abbie Broad
Just a few years ago, I was a single parent, working as a Receptionist at a local firm in Portsmouth…
My journey as a start-up began in 2014. Training as a Life Coach had been my dream for many years and finally it became a reality. After achieving my Level 5 Diploma in record time, I was keen to start helping others as quickly as I could. Although at this point I still never imagined I would be running my own business.
But after a chance encounter and the offer of a coaching contract at a local manufacturing firm, before I knew it I had a business bank account, 2000 business cards and no job!!!
Being a coach has certainly helped me to navigate this journey. However, nothing can prepare you for the rollercoaster of emotions that you have to endure as an early stage start-up. The usual networking groups didn‘t offer the kind of support I needed and very quickly my mental health began to suffer.
Thankfully I did find the support I needed and because of that, I am now able to help you to avoid the unnecessary struggles of so many start-ups. By starting at the beginning. By focusing my energy on creating the right mindset, everything else began to fall into place.
I realised that despite being a Life Coach, my own limiting beliefs, fear of failure and procrastination were actually what was holding me back.

Now, my mission is to help you to do the same and make the shift from struggle to success!
“My business felt like a burden. A place that triggered many of my fears and limiting beliefs. I doubted myself constantly and often felt overwhelmed and exhausted. Even when my business was going well, I still struggled to maintain consistency with income and visibility”
If you are the business, then you must be treated like the companies most valuable asset.

“Investing in yourself will transform how you feel and approach your business. It will ensure your business is a place of joy and productivity.
