The Successful & Smart Experience (my way)
Hi, I'm Julia Katsivo Carter, a Holistic Business Coach and Founder of Successful & Smart Business Coaching based in a cottage country in Ontario, Canada. I started coaching entrepreneurs in marketing, operations strategies and mindset in 2015 and never looked back.
I resigned from my career with the Canada Revenue Agency (mortgage, car note and all). I said yes to working in my gifts and talents (zero network, introvert, no social media, nothing).
My gifts included public speaking, teaching, coaching and writing - all scary things considering they involved performing/displaying for others. Terrifying because I was stepping out on my own.
I also wanted to work from home and own my time and creativity because of health challenges.
My goal was unheard of back then and in my circle of the world. I lived in the era of “Go hard or go home.” “Pain is only weakness leaving your body.” So, could I do it? Accomplish my goals while honouring my body’s specific energy requirements.
I decided yes, more love - real love, loving relationships, travel, and time in nature. I wanted to live surrounded by trees, water, and spacious land with a partner who owned his business and worked from home. Could I make it happen?
I set out to transform my life into more of what I love, including radical shifts in the way I thought, what I believed, and my actions.
A little more than ten years later, I am living more of what I love and letting go of what doesn't count. I'm fortunate to walk beside outstanding women entrepreneurs on a mission to design the best business and life without sacrificing freedom. They, too, like me, want more of what's essential, more of what counts, and a company that supports their lifestyle.
