Before working with Viv
I’d been watching on the sidelines for probably a couple of years, desperate to work with Viv, wondering whether to invest or not and how different my business would be if I did.
I was on the verge of, probably packing it. I was feeling like (I hate this analogy about a hamster running a wheel), but I was feeling like I was just constantly going around in circles, wanting to do something different, not knowing what that was not being able to find the right person to help me get where I wanted to get. so I probably wouldn’t have a business or I would still be taking minutes.
I was literally working seven days a week just to do minute-taking. It was so time-consuming for a minimal amount of money and my self-worth and self-confidence was on the floor thinking “this isn’t gonna happen for you.”
When I came to Viv, one of my massive issues was getting clients. and the reason it was such a huge issue was that I was forcing myself on social media.
I’ve been told by so many people I’ve got to be on Facebook, actively posting 3, 4, 5 posts a day, got to be on LinkedIn posting, constantly got to be on Instagram, Twitter, all the rest of it. And as you know, I hate social media. I’m quite a private person. So it felt like a massive, massive slug to be constantly posting.
I was at a real pain point where I thought, “ I know what I want from a business. I know what I wanna be doing every day is my passion. I know where I wanna be working. But I don’t know how to get to that point. and then, as I say, I know how amazing you are at what you do and knew you wouldn’t be cheap, but I also knew you’d be worth whatever the investment was. And from the very first session, I had no regrets. Working with you once to the point where I’m now carrying on working with you for well over a year.
“my self-worth and self-confidence was on the floor thinking “this isn’t gonna happen for you.”
Jenny’s Key points and results
“So, that is in eight hours of coaching, well, less than eight hours of coaching that you’ve helped me achieve that, which is mind-blowing.”
- Landed her first contract after just 1 session valued at 14.5k
- Left her soul destroying job
- After 8 sessions now has 30k+ revenue booked in for a quarter
- Had over 300 calls over 2 months to connect with people she was referred to via existing contracts. Leading to 10k months and some big contract opportunities (still in discussion)
- Didn’t have a website, email list or use social media
- Refined her niche and dropped individual 1-1 private coaching
“I take my little girl to school every day and pick her up every day. We have quality time together. We enjoy the weekends together and never work weekends. and I can’t believe I’m saying that just after so few sessions it’s amazing.”

What are you looking forward to next
“When I look back a year ago, I came in as a teeny tiny business. And now I think actually in another 12 months, I’m gonna have a team of people”
It has really, really widened my thinking in terms of business.. It’s around possibilities for me.
What were your reservations about working with Viv?
Yeah, so the massive hesitation, and I don’t think this is a massive surprise was the amount of money that I would be paying. So it was the investment because I know how much coaches have been, that you’ve previously worked with, and I sort of guessed what you would be and you were way more than I thought you would be.
I suppose what I would say to anybody who’s in that situation is think past that because I would not have the business I’ve got now if it wasn’t for you. And I know that you have been the one factor in the last year that has completely transformed my business.
” you have been the one factor in the last year that has completely transformed my business.”
What should others know about Viv?
How incredible you are, and I know how experienced you are, and I love the honesty that I get from you.
You always bring me back to that point. Remember what you value the most.
You’re no-nonsense. I love it. You’ve got such a wide range of expertise and knowledge and skills. I trust you. Obviously. I like working with you. We have, you know, we have a good fun together as well.
You always keep me on track, which I need. Cause I dive off a million times. Because my head’s always everywhere. So I love that. It was just, just a whole package for me. And you are, you’re very disciplined, which is what I know I need,
and it’s the straight-talking
I suppose it’s knowing. Is the way you adapt sessions per person. So it’s knowing when to push and when you’re overloading. Yeah. Cause I know sometimes I’ve said to you, what else can I be doing? And you’ve been like, no, this is enough for you now. And you know that, and I trust that. And you’re always right. Which is annoying in a good way.
I wanna say just another thing about the investment because I know, I know how much this is a, a big deal for so many people.
I’m gonna be super honest. I didn’t have any money coming in. And so when Viv told me what the investment was, I felt like I’d been smacked in the face. Cause it was kind of like, well, what am I gonna do? It’s another dead end. It’s another thing that that’s like, I wanna do. Maybe it’s another sign that I’m not destined for this business.
And so I got that as a loan. Because I had that much faith that this was exactly what I needed and Viv was the coach. I needed to get where I wanted to be, and it’s the best decision I’ve ever, ever made. And so I think if you want something bad enough, you’ll alwaysfind a way to get that money.
“You’re no-nonsense. I love it. You’ve got such a wide range of expertise and knowledge and skills. I trust you.”
What would you say to those thinking about working with Viv?
Do it. stop. Get off the bloody fence, pick up the call, and speak to Viv. And you will your business. I promise you will never, ever, ever be the same ever, especially if you’re feeling remote. Like I was. And when I say your business, it’s your whole wife.
I can’t separate the business for me. It’s all. And I think for a lot of people, whether you’ve got a family or not, it’s your whole life it’s you personally. So do it. If you are even thinking about it, it means you’re ready. Pick up the bloody phone and start wasting time. Like I did. Thank you so much.
I wish I would’ve picked up that phone years ago.
