I'm Andrew Wayfinder Hryniewicz. And I'm joined today by Sherri Kaye Hoff, transformational business coach, author and podcast host.
So a very warm welcome to you, Sherry, and where are you hanging out today?
Sherri Kaye Hoff 0:35 Well, thank you so much. And I'm in Parker, Colorado. It's a beautiful day.
Andrew Hryniewicz 0:39 Aren't you lucky? Yes, we... What's today in England? Today was rainy and grey. No surprise there.
So let's get on to your work. So SherrI Kay Hoff is a transformational business coach known for "Inspiring intuition, vision and massive action".
And she's a catalyst for personal and business growth, joy and profits, in a way that's fun, relaxing and fulfilling. Sherry uses both spiritual and practical techniques, to obliterate the blocks and create transformational change.
She's a Business Leadership, Happiness and Inner Game Expert. She had her own "Near Death Experience" five years ago, which has made her Life Mission sharing "The Keys of Happiness and Success" with her clients.
So thank you, Sherri, for your time today. And we're going to be looking at the topic of "Shift Your Wealth Setpoint". Sherry's gonna unpack that by answering six questions.
So the first question, Sherry, who is your ideal client, and what's the transformation your work helps them achieve?
Sherri Kaye Hoff 1:47 So my ideal client is a small business professional service provider, but they always have some kind of spiritual element.
You know, they're either beginning searching or open to spirituality, or they might be very far along their spiritual journey. They're people full of integrity and loyalty, kindness... they have a mission.
So their business is more than just, you know, "I'm in business to make money." They have a real vision for making change and creating a better world.
Andrew Hryniewicz 2:23 Okay, so what's the transformation your work helps them accomplish?
Sherri Kaye Hoff 2:31 So most people think, "Okay, I want to grow my business." And they think they're looking for a strategy.
But what happens is a personal transformation that you have. And it's the person that you become along the journey of growing your business... that is really the true gift. And so your business doesn't transform until you transform.
And so, you see this all the time in small things, like, you know, people who are afraid to be seen, or afraid to be visible. All of a sudden they're on stage talking in front of lots of people, or doing a podcast.
Those are things of growth and transformation that happen as you go from starting a business. Or maybe even being in business for a while, but deciding that you want to scale your business and become, you know, more successful. And make more money, make a bigger difference.
So the transformation is really deciding inside to create a much bigger vision for your life, and your whole life. Because we all are kind of glued down by, you know, how we were raised or the experiences that we had.
And most people are afraid. Like I ask people all the time, "Well, what is your goal?" "I want to make more money." "Well, how much more money?"
And they have no idea because all they have thought is they want more money. But the idea of saying, you know, "I want to double my income".
Or you know, "I want this kind of lifestyle"... feels too big and scary. And I'm, you know, frankly shocked at how many people are like that. They would rather just say they want, you know, one little tiny piece of the pie, instead of, you know, the whole shebang.
Andrew Hryniewicz 4:17 Okay, well, that I think is a perfect segue into question number two. So what's the biggest challenge they're facing? And it sounds like that's exactly...
Sherri Kaye Hoff 4:27 Yeah. So they're usually, everyone actually, "no matter who you are: your biggest challenge is your mindset, and your set of beliefs".
And so, you know, and people can take class after class, and training after training... But if that mindset and that set of beliefs doesn't shift and change, you will see maybe some improvements or improvement for a while.
But until you make that leap into really thinking a different way, I was talking to a client the other day and we were talking about the value of her time.
And we set a dollar amount because her cost accountant said, "We need to figure out your time, not just your employee's time and the creation of these products".
And so it's like her transformational work to step into what the real value of her time. And it's just amazing to see that unfold.
Andrew Hryniewicz 5:27 Okay, great. So question number three, what's, what's the number one insight you would share with people right now to help them?
Sherri Kaye Hoff 5:38 Okay, so this is just gonna be so simple. But the number one insight is to really journal every single day... Create that as a practice. And I have a kind of elaborate journaling practice that I use.
Or you could call it a morning ritual on, but something that keeps you putting one foot in front of the other, and keeps you grounded and centred, and focused on what, your goal is for the day, for the week, for the month, for the year, for the next five years.
Because we all get so distracted, you know, we're like, "Yes, I want to write a book, and then Oh, look at the butterfly over there". And I think looking at butterflies is wonderful, but we've got to, you know, have focused attention. So...
Andrew Hryniewicz 6:26 Reminds me of a favourite t-shirt of mine that says, you know, "When you're up to your ass in alligators, it's hard to remember you're here to drain the swamp".
Sherri Kaye Hoff 6:36 That's a good one.
Andrew Hryniewicz 6:40 So question number four, in your own development, what was the most impactful concept, book, experience?
Sherri Kaye Hoff 6:54 So I've had many, but the most recent, big dramatic event was five years ago, when I lost consciousness, went over to the other side. And, you know, I had one of those near death experiences.
I went into the light and, you know, met beings that said to me, "It's not your time yet. And we'll get you back in your body".
And I came back into my body. And I was on a ventilator and was told that I might have to have a heart transplant within a year.
And then within three weeks of that event, I just had a miraculous healing. And a lot of that healing, I believe, you know, the doctors call this "spontaneous remission".
I know it's a miracle. But I believe that, that miracle came because I decided how I was going to live my life. Before I knew I even was going to have healing. Like I didn't know if I was going to live three months, or six months or a year or five years.
And I decided I was just going to live the way I've been teaching my clients for years, you know, just full on, full out... going for everything on my bucket list, and being happy and not sweating the small stuff.
And I've continued that. I kind of was like that before, but even more dramatic and impactful since that experience. So I still have some angel dust on my shoulders. I feel like.
Andrew Hryniewicz 8:22 Oh, great. Thank you.
So question number five. What's a free resource you'd like to share with the audience to help them today?
Sherri Kaye Hoff 8:32 So I have a masterclass called "Five Keys to Explosive Growth in Your Business" and it talks about transformation, vision, omnipresent marketing, mindset and that special magic sauce that you need to pull it all together.
So it's probably the best masterclass that I've ever done and, and something that anyone who listens we'll get a lot out of it.
Andrew Hryniewicz 9:02 Okay, and that will be on your website, and I'll put the show notes. I mean, I'll put the URL in the show notes. sherikayehoff.com/five-keys-to-explosive-biz-growth-free-training/. That will be written out in the show notes.
Sherri Kaye Hoff 9:26 I was gonna say I could make that URL easier. But if they go to just sherrikayehoff.com, there's a little box that they can click.
Andrew Hryniewicz 9:39 Okay. Just go to your website, and they can find it there. Okay, great.
So at the last question number six, Sherri, what should I have asked you that I didn't ask you?
Sherri Kaye Hoff 9:51 Just asked me what I like to do for fun.
Andrew Hryniewicz 9:54 What do you like to do for fun?
Sherri Kaye Hoff 9:56 Well, I'm a travel girl and I love the beach. So I like to, and I'm a water girl, so I love to be in the water. If I'm at the beach, I'm in the water usually. And I've even had a shark encounter when I was in a kayak in the Bahamas.
So lived to tell about that one. Yeah, so the shark attack wasn't fun, but it was fun to realise that I could be calm through something like that.
Andrew Hryniewicz 10:24 Yeah. Was it an actual attack? Or was it just, you and the shark were in the...
Sherri Kaye Hoff 10:30 It was more like a lurking, like my girlfriend and I were paddling the kayak and her dog kept trying to swim out to us. And she was paddling the kayak and she hits something, and we're both paddling, and she's like, "Oh, my gosh, a shark".
And then we both like went completely silent. And all we could think of was the dog. So we paddled as fast as we could to the dog.
Imagine now a kayak which is tippy, and the shark is circling the kayak. And we pull the dog into a kayak, and paddle back to her house. And the whole way back, the shark circled us the whole time.
Andrew Hryniewicz 11:12 Okay, that's not quite an attack. But it's not... It's not a fun afternoon.
Sherri Kaye Hoff 11:18 No, no, it was it was maybe more of a fear of an attack. I didn't have any blood going.
Andrew Hryniewicz 11:25 You know, I just had visions of, you know, like, chomping up on the boat or?
Sherri Kaye Hoff 11:33 Yeah, no, yeah.
Andrew Hryniewicz 11:35 I'll tell you a story about that when we get off the call.
Sherri Kaye Hoff 11:41 Sounds good.
Andrew Hryniewicz 11:42 So that's perfect. Sherry, thank you so much for your time today.
