Good episode? Give it some love!
imageAs much as I talk about how our mass market is being divided into infinite niches, figuring out your niche is often not where you want to start your business. Your starting point is yourself! Angie Cole will inspire you to practice your craft to find your niche.

If you want to build a business in alignment with your values, you gotta build it from the inside out.

As a coach and guide, Angie says she likes working with gritty women who want to do work that lights them up. You can learn more about her work at Untaming The Wild.

She knew for a very long time that she was drawn to coaching, but it took her years of working with different clients and practicing her craft before she grew into her niche.

Lot of great lessons in our conversation including:


  1. How Angie draws the distinction between coaching and consulting or teaching.

  2. How her tool of coaching grew from the seed of facilitation and training.

  3. What predictable patterns of stress she’s found as she levels up in her career and why it’s fruitful stress.

  4. Why outside tools can be helpful, but only when you have an internal sense of control.

Coaching Advice


If you’re someone that’s truly interested in working from anywhere in the world, Angie sahred this advice:

1) Embrace the fact that there are no real rules for how to work in this way.

2) It feels confusing because we are constantly creating a new paradigm and that’s why it feels uncertain.

3) The way to learn how to do it is just by doing it.
