Josie May is one of the UK's top Business
Coaches for female entrepreneurs. She is the creator of The MAAPS Method, a strategy that helps business owners scale and create sustainable business models, allowing them to be successful in all areas of their life, not just business.
Josie has worked with over 200 international business owners supporting many to create 6 figures and multi 6 figures each year.
Josie started her coaching business in 2016 and initially had the mindset that the harder she hustled, the more successful she would be. That strategy had worked for her in local government, where she was consistently promoted for 15 years until she reached a senior level. She soon learnt that despite how hard she worked in her business, no matter how many hours she put in and how much she pushed.. She just wasn't getting to where she wanted to be. She found herself in feast or famine. Some months would be 5 figures and some close to nothing. She felt like she was surviving.. but not thriving! She knew there had to be a better way.
Josie realised that she was working without a real strategy, She was throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping it would stick - some of it did.. but a lot of it didn't. That's when she decided to do things differently. She used her natural strategic thinking skills to create a simple plan that focussed on marketing and relationship building; positioning herself as a leader that her clients could trust. She challenged herself to push outside her comfort zone and took big brave action. The strategy worked and she was able to quickly scale to a 6 figure annual income.
She landed a contract with a multi-million dollar company which gave her the opportunity to coach and mentor over 150 female entrepreneurs. Using the knowledge and experience that she acquired over her time in business, she developed a method of business success that works! It's simple yet massively effective and she has seen the amazing results not only in her own business but with her clients too.
Introducing 'The MAAPS Method'
- M - Mindset - Too often female entrepreneurs block wealth & success in their business due to their limiting beliefs. Josie works with her clients on a conscious & subconscious level to create an unshakeably strong money mindset & unwavering confidence. Success in business is 20% strategy/skills and 80% mindset!
- A - Alignment - Connecting to our inner voice, feeling good and spiritually connected are vital to success in business. If all we focus on is action, we lose inspiration, creativity and joy.
- A - Accountability - This is key to Josie's work. She checks in with her clients EVERY DAY (mon-fri) to ensure they are taking the action, stretching outside their comfort zone and making progress.
- P - Planned Strategy - This is essential in breaking the feast or famine cycle. It takes so much longer to achieve your goals if you don't have a plan to get you there.
- S - Stretch Zone - Success requires you to get uncomfortable. Josie work with her clients to support them to spend more time in their stretch zone, to take big, brave and often uncomfortable action that results in big rewards.
