“Build a high-integrity business. Live a rich life.”
This motto has been the driving force behind my success and it’s the mission behind the Liberation Coaching Program and Regenerative Business Community where I support owners in active learning, imperfect action, and transformational outcomes.
Small business owners have passion, internal drive, and determination but these characteristics can only get you so far beyond starting and bootstrapping your business.
The pain comes as you succeed, get busier, are in higher demand, and the complexity increases in all facets of your business from “field to files”. Wearing all those hats gets heavy and knowing which to keep and which to outsource can be tricky.
The cost of not figuring out your next move can be enormous and far-reaching beyond stress, isolation, and business failure. It can hit your health, your relationships, and your overall well-being. Don’t let that be your story.
1) Liberation Business Coaching - Work on your business: In this program we look at the broad spectrum of your business as it is today. Your business structure, your profitability, your leadership experience, and your satisfaction level. We understand there is a gap between where you are and where you want to be, so we work that gap to get you the gain.
2) Liberation Project Coaching - Focus on one project: In this program we look at a specific problem or opportunity you have in front of you right now. Together we facilitate critical action that needs to happen in a short timeframe by giving you a valuable business partner to help you create the best results.
3) Regenerative Business Community - Break through isolation: In this program you become a part of a professional community of your landscape industry peers who are navigating the same terrain as you. They are doing similar work for similar clients and face the same challenges. As an alternative or addition to one-on-one coaching, participating in this community helps you to realize that you are not alone, that you can collaborate and learn from fellow business owners. These communities validate your challenges and breeds inspiration and motivation to move your business forward.
In the Beginning...
Monique set out as a gardener’s apprentice at the age of 18. At 21, she was a freelance garden designer/installer and booking 5 figure jobs through networking and word-of-mouth marketing. She started a newsletter in the early 1990s and today has two vibrant blogs to share her gardening and business experiences.
In 2000, Monique founded The Garden Continuum, an award-winning, multi-seven-figure landscape design/build and fine gardening company. She employs 25 people and runs a thriving triple-bottom-line company with a mission to focus on the planet, people and profits equally.
As an industry advocate, Monique knows that eco-minded business owners could be enjoying the same success if they turn some focus into their business structure and practices to get the help they need from staff and the response they want from clientele. Her coaching mission is to elevate as many small businesses as she can through one on one coaching and group work.
Consider weaving in some group learning about key landscape environment and business practices that will help you to elevate and differentiate your service offerings while improving team performance and satisfaction.
