Eric Li Boston, Massachusetts
Business Coach, Entrepreneurship Coach, Life Coach
My story is not your typical coach's story.
18 years ago, I left my job to start building my dream -- my own business. I grew it to $20 million a year in revenues and controlled 80% of our key market. But it consumed my life and the worst part of it all, I had no passion for the business. It was just a means to support myself and my family.
14 years in, and after many attempts and failures, I finally came up with a way to have the business run itself and give me back my life. But I still woke up every day hating the business and wishing that I could change my life.
Then in 2017, we lost our biggest customer eventually forcing me to have to shut down the business. Having spent the last 16 years of my life tied up with the business, I had no idea what I wanted to do.
Being nearly 50 and having been out of the work force for 16 years, I struggled to find myself, my passions and what I wanted to do next.
Applying for positions I wasn't really interested in, wandering around networking events wondering why I was there, getting lost reading and listening to the constant noise on the Internet - I was stuck and wasn't sure what to do.
Fast forward to today, I found my calling and now use my knowledge and experience to help others figure out what they want to do next in life, find a niche that they enjoy, help them achieve a work-life balance with their business, or help their business break through to that next level.
Looking back, I wish I had someone back then who had the experience to guide me and open my eyes to other possibilities in life. It could have kept me from spinning my wheels, making wrong turns and saved me years in my journey.
I may not be your typical coach. But I am all about using my knowledge and experience in business, entrepreneurship and life to save people from the pain, navigate all the noise and help them reach a better place in their lives like I did.
