We had the good fortune of connecting with Sun Coaching Centre Kat and Bodhi and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sun Coaching Centre, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
We are inspired to be of service and have more meaningful impact in the community. Living through the pandemic showed us the importance of connecting with others for our mental and emotional health. Leveraging our skillsets in leadership and business management was the impetus to start our business. Our friendship, passion for growth, and overcoming burnout is the foundation of our services.
We formed a unique partnership and combined our different professional backgrounds. Kat is a mother of twins with more than 16 years of experience in healthcare architecture, nonprofits, authentic relating, facilitation and meditation teaching. Bodhi spent more than 15 years working in social work settings and making an impact in the community. Bodhi held positions in leadership, direct client service, and community collaboration.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Working with us is like having a business partner as a second set of eyes, with your most important priorities in mind. We provide simple research-based methods for peaceful and renewed energy. We are most passionate about supporting business professionals and entrepreneurs to feel genuinely empowered. To know, live, and breathe their highest levels of working and how to reset if they are lost and overwhelmed.
We are business coaches and entrepreneurs for open-minded professionals who want to have a positive impact in their work and feel great at the end of the workday. When we focus too much on depleting administrative tasks and the challenges outside our control work may feel heavy or stagnate. This constant fatigue can quickly turn to high stress. We get it and have both travelled that hard road. The burden of not having the energy or clarity to support your clients
and community like you truly desire. When someone is wanting to have energy and purpose back in their business or about to launch a new business and is not sure where to start – we are here to support them on their journey.
What helped us overcome challenges comes from our vision and passion for how we are making a difference in the world. What we do is fulfilling, exciting, and we spend a lot of time laughing and having fun. Our collaboration is built on trust and appreciation. Building relationships with other entrepreneurs is a huge part of how we work.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We enjoy having company and showing them Colorado. Our Botanic garden is unique and has such unique beauty to show with each season, it is a great place to walk and enjoy a picnic. During the summer the Pearl Street Market is a place to find delicious and fresh food, listen to local musicians, pick up a tasty lunch and get a beautiful bouquet of flowers. One of a kind concert venue Red Rocks offers entertainment and has a breathtaking view. Some of our favorite places to hike are St. Mary Glacier, Maxwell Falls and Castlewood Canyon. When you are in Denver you have to try Sweet Action ice cream, Sushi Den, The Corner Beet, The Potager, City O`City – and you have to come back for another week because there are so many great
places to eat in Denver!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
We are so grateful for Feroshia Knight, founder of Coach Training World. She is a genuine, funny, kind and inspirational teacher and long standing coach. She is passionate about supporting entrepreneurs like us to grow to their full potential though holistic methods and strong community. Without her guidance we wouldn’t be where we are today.
