Ruth Struck’s Open Strategies Northwest agile coaching gains inspiration from Jackie.
Name of Business: Open Strategies Northwest LLC
What the Business does: Agile coaching and consulting.
Years in Business: I originally got the business license in 2012. I worked towards making it a stand alone business in 2019.
What led you to do this business? What were you doing before? I have been a contract or permanent employee doing agile coaching for the past 12 years. I wanted to establish myself as a separate entity rather than a full-time employee of a company.
What is working now? I have been networking but haven’t got any business yet.
What class did you take from Jackie? Encore/Solo business builders.
What did you learn from Jackie? Working with Jackie was inspiring. As a result, she gave me the confidence to continue moving forward, always giving me positive support about the value I can provide clients. Her advice on wording communications, reaching out, and follow up were great.
Take Away/Lessons Learned/Advice: Charge enough. In other words, cheap does not generate business or give the impression of quality.
