Interview with Dolores
To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment and resulting “compelling story” that brought me to where I am today, coaching people like you on gaining CLARITY and designing the strategy you need to move your career to the next level. That defining moment in my life happened a few years ago. I was in a business meeting where I was negotiating a consulting job and in the middle of the meeting I broke into tears. I was negotiating my contribution to a project, a team and I was not able to state my case because I was completely lost in myself. I had lost my sense of self and I no longer knew what I wanted to do nor what was next for me. As a mother of four, juggling life and work, I had been going from job to job or contract to contract without a clear understanding of where I was going, what were my goals and where I wanted to be in 1 year or 5 years.
I work with entrepreneurs, speakers, authors, coaches, IDEAPRENEURS ™ as I call them, who are committed to making an impact in the world and are looking to reach the next level in their business. They need to clarify their vision and their goals, develop strategies and action plan to move forward. They need to move from talking about what they do to talking about what they stand for.
I work with both Men & Women:
I have worked with clients in a wide scope of industries, yet, if I haven’t worked in your field, you are not at a disadvantage, quite to the contrary. Coming with a curious eye and lots of questions supports you in looking at your market and your company from a new, fresh perspective. This leads to powerful conversations and opens opportunities that were not there before. Having worked in multiple industries, also gives me experience to offer strategies used in other industries that might not have been tried out in yours. Because of this, the ideation, business development, strategy phase of our work becomes fueled with creative energy that leads to new and untapped opportunities.
Both through my formal training and my experience I’ve been in the shoes of my clients. I’ve started companies, I’ve led teams within corporations and I’ve been the visionary looking to turn an idea into a reality in the market. All this paired with my coaching skills allows me to truly understand what my clients are going through as well as offer a overall picture of their situation. I also bring to the mix knowledge and expertise on the speaking market as a TED participant and TEDx organizer and speaker coach.
As a woman and mother of four, I also learned to design the balance that is required to succeed in both business and life. Many of my clients both men and women need support in an overall coaching program, one that includes all parts of their lives.
I don’t work with everyone. I focus my work on high achievers who have the drive and vision to aspire to new stages of growth. Because my focus is very narrow, what you get with me is no-nonsense, undiluted expertise on what works for reaching your goals. I’ve simply become an expert at this stuff and that’s why my clients, groups and audiences get great results. My approach is straight-forward and to the point. I’m a power coach, I hold your vision and I’m relentless in the pursuit of the best version of you, the client, at all time. I hold excellence as my goal for my clients and myself.
My workshops, products and programs are created for people who are driven and have the vision to know that there is more for them in both their life and the work that they do. They are passionate enough about their work that they have the courage and commitment to challenge themselves to lead the change they want for their companies. These programs are created for you to gain CLARITY and put systems in place within a few months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually lead you to consistently getting the best version of yourself, align your team towards common values and consistently take CLEAR action towards your current goals with a CLEAR vision and CLEAR strategy. All these systems will not only impact your immediate bottom line but will help you redesign your life as a whole so that you can be fully present and successful both in your personal and professional life.
Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I carefully pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.)
My programs are NOT for those who are uncomfortable challenging themselves or who are looking to solve their challenges from the outside in. What I bring is not a quick fix pill, it’s a commitment to up-level yourself and thus the life around you. If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been there at times when we are too tired of fighting and we just want our problems to be solved by someone else. Here is something I can offer you if you are looking to grow but afraid of shaking “the tree” (LINK AL FREE BOOK):
Ask yourself where do you want to be in 6 months. (Describe your typical day, the more details the better)

This will depend on your commitment to implement and the work you put into the assignments that we give you. That said, virtually all clients see results within the first couple of months in the form of newfound CLARITY, new opportunities, better ways of managing themselves and their teams and going from overwhelm to productivity.
If you are applying to a TEDx stage, it typically takes about 3 months to get CLEAR on your message and begin to apply to speak. You should be selected and speak within 9 months of our work together.
Do all of your assignments and fieldwork. Show up for the group calls, schedule your private coaching calls. Understand that it’s not a “quick fix,” it’s not magic and while you will start seeing results right away, it takes anything from six months to to a year for you to begin realizing your financial growth and start speaking from the stages you want to speak from. All my clients who have diligently worked through the program, showed up for the calls and committed and completed the assignments have successfully landed the stages they want AND realized their business growth, in much less time than they would have on their own.
Yes, a resounding Yes! Many clients are excited to report that they were able to cover their investment in the program through reaching the goals of their company, furthering their career and realizing their next level of growth. Most likely, you will recover and more what you invested in this program in the next 12 months.
What you’re regularly getting with this program (and my coaching) is what I call a series of PINGs or AHAs! that will move you faster than you would on your own. Expect to get a lot of these as well as the resources you’ve been looking for and haven’t found until now. That’s what you’re investing in, CLARITY, results, more revenue, more profit, not just more “information.”
