Meet Kelly Wendorf: Author, ICF Master Certified Coach

We had the good fortune of connecting with Kelly Wendorf and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kelly, what do you attribute your success to?

I want to list five: the first is my absolute love for what I do. I love it. I believe in it. I feel privileged to do it. I am one hundred percent confident that what I do changes lives and I live fully into that knowing. I think that good success of a brand has to do with the transference of that enthusiasm and confidence. Second has to do with making one’s niche as narrow and as clearly defined as possible. I used to cast a wide net with the kinds of clients that I would work with. But now I’m very selective. I only work with high performers. I only work with people who are one hundred percent committed to making their lives amazing. And I only work with people who inspire me. Third… it has to do with genuinely caring for people. If clients feel totally cared for, if they feel they are special (because they are) and deeply valued and respected for who they are, what they are showing up for, and who they want to be, that is a powerful way to bring people into the fold of your work. Fourth is a commitment to learning and growing. I am constantly reading, unlearning, learning, re-learning and strongly believe in having a coach to keep me accountable to my values. And lastly, but most importantly, I would not have any of the success that I have without a great support team at my side and who has my back. It takes a village to raise a business, and that village, and its wellbeing, is primary.
