- You’re ready for liftoff, but need the extra support and accountability

- You want to get real results, and are sick of always coming up with excuses

- You have never tried Coaching, are are curious to try it out

If any of the above statements resonates with you, you’re in the right place! I want to tell you more about the Sculpt Your Business(TM) 4-Week Program rapid breakthrough coaching package!


Have you tried to create big results in your business, but lose motivation or can’t stick to your plan after some time? You’re not alone! Hi, my name is Alex Figueredo, and I’ve been there myself plenty of times myself in the past. I’ve worked on big and small projects and gotten overwhelmed because I couldn’t seem to move forward on anything. When I resigned from a full-time banking job to create my own mission-driven business helping others, things only became worse. Every time I had a brilliant new idea, after pursuing it a few weeks I’d lose the drive to keep going and start on something else. I used to leave a trail of unfinished projects behind me everywhere I went. That’s when I would come up with myriad excuses for why I couldn’t make sales calls, why I wasn’t getting new clients, and why I only had $20 in the bank. The thing is, I finally realized that if I didn’t take control of my own professional dreams, I wouldn’t be able to get paid to do what I love while making a difference in the lives of others.   

So one day the lightbulb went off and I finally learned and I’m Going to Let you in on the Secret to Success for Getting the Results you want to turn your Dreams into a Reality:

You have to combine your Inner Game with Outer Action. In other words, you have to have the right inner mindset, plus the necessary outer action to make a change and get real, lasting results!

Add to that, most people don’t have a clear, step by step Plan-for-Action with actionable daily steps, and the support and accountability to take the action to accomplish their goal!

Enter the Sculpt Your Business(TM) 4-Week Program!

After my experience during the last Olympics, I discovered a new internal motivation inside myself. This spark has allowed me to focus on my goals and take action to quickly get lasting results. I lost 10 pounds during the Olympics and another 5 pounds thereafter. Click on the following picture link below to read more and watch me tell my personal story of transformation.

How can you use this “Olympic mindset” in your own life? Athletics and sports are really a metaphor for our own internal struggles we go through on a daily basis in our own lives and businesses. 

As I explain in the video, I’d been overweight for years and had gotten “stuck” thinking that I could never lose the weight. After my Olympic Goal Challenge, I went from a size 14+ to a size 2/4.

It wasn’t until I finally decided it was time to make a change in my life… to gain control of my body and mind, that I actually made the change!

Another example of my “Olympic Goal” Attitude is with my master’s degree. I had been thinking about getting my MBA for 6 years, but never quite took the plunge. Then all of a sudden, an opportunity presented itself in a non-MBA program I really liked, but I only had 10 days to apply for that year’s program or else I had to wait a whole year! I figured out the minimum information I needed to submit by the deadline and ran around like a crazy person to get it done! Then I sent the rest of the documents the following month.

Since then, I realized I’ve achieved other professional accomplishments in just 4 weeks. These are some of the endeavors I’ve personally accomplished in 4 weeks or less:

- Wrote a book (Sculpt Your Life From Sketch to Masterpiece(TM) on a topic near to my heart

- Went from no job to starting from scratch multiple mission-driven businesses I’m proud of

- Doubled my sales month over month, doing what I love without being “salesy”

- Developed and put on various seminars on valuable content my clients need, without prior event experience

- Got a specialized professional certification that gives me greater credibility in my industry

- Found a new job paying 40% higher salary by making a big leap

- Positioned myself as an expert source in multiple news publications

 

Thus was born the Sculpt Your Business(TM) 4-Week Coaching Program designed to get you fast results, moving you closer to your professional goal in just 4 weeks!

Now, just a disclaimer that not every goal you have will be accomplished in 4 weeks or less. However, you can make significant headway if you break down your goals into short fragments of time. Once you start a big goal, typically the momentum will keep you going. For example, once I applied for my master’s and started the program, I was committed to complete it! Then all I had to think of was how to get through each semester. But if I never applied, I would always wonder “what if?”

And there are goals that may not be necessarily attainable in 4 weeks or less. For example, earning $1 million in one month is probably not realistic unless you already have a multi-million dollar business. But once you start the Sculpt Your Business(TM) 4-Week Coaching Program™, you’ll be that much closer to reaching your professional goal and ultimately your dream life! Won’t it feel amazing to help others and help yourself?!

I’ve been where you are many times. Now that I’m a Certified Professional Coach, I feel blessed that I get to be by your side for 4 weeks and personally coach you through your BIG goal, creating the right “top performer” frame of mind, creating the right plan and taking the right action steps to get you the results to live out your dream. Even if you think you’re failing, feel like quitting, or need an extra hand to pick you up, I’ll be there for you! And, we are in a unique and lucky opportunity in history to have the extra motivation of the Olympics going on as we speak!

The Sculpt Your Business 4-Week Coaching Program™ is the ONLY live coaching program available of its kind that I’ve seen that walks mission-driven professionals and entrepreneurs through Exactly how to achieve your goal in 4 weeks, with a group of accountability partners on hand to motivate you! I’m your own personal team coach, and your group mates are like your team members.

In just a few short weeks, the Sculpt Your Business 4-Week Coaching Program is going to help you:

“Although I’m involved in many awesome projects, for some reason I couldn’t find the focus to complete an important product I started, that will not only help my clients but greatly increase my credibility and exposure in the industry. Alex has given me the push I needed to finish the product, and I’m so excited to be launching my product in the next month.”

Angelique Millis, NFPT & NSPA Certified Personal Trainer

Fitness Expert & Author, EliteFitnessConnection.com

 

“Alexandra has pushed me to take on professional challenges that I would not have otherwise taken without her mentorship. For example, before I started working with her, I had never hosted an online training seminar to my clients and Alexandra challenged me to create one. I was not sure about it at first, but after working with her, I successfully completed the training seminar which has helped increase my expertise and credibility. In addition, I’m working on another one, as well as a product that I will sell later and bring me increased sales over the next year.”

Allison Semancik, Founder and Online Marketing Consultant

Idea Sprouts, www.IdeaSproutsMarketing.com

 

“I really wanted to write my own book, but didn’t know where to start. Once I started working with Alexandra, I got motivated to research, write my book and start a website, all in a matter of weeks! Now I’m take positive steps to market my book to increase more sales!”

Amelia Bonilla, CFP®, CRPC®

“After completing my Masters’ degree in Nursing, I found myself floundering after a few years working as a nurse practitioner. After you gave me the inspiration and push to step up my game, I finally applied to a PhD program. Well, I got accepted and just started! I know it will take a lot of hard work and dedication for the next couple of years, but the results will be so worth it!”

C. Victoria Framil, MSN, ARNP

Nurse Practitioner


“Over the last couple of years, my professional career has felt stagnant, with little direction. I have high ambitions and have wanted to begin my Master’s for nearly a decade. After working with you, I reassessed my career and life goals and decided to go for what I really want. In a matter of months, I asked and received a higher salary and promotion and applied and got accepted to several Ivy League Master’s programs. I am happy to report that I just started a very prestigious executive Master’s program at Harvard, something I’d only dreamed about 6 months ago!

Joseph Richards

Military Officer


“As a paralegal, I recently felt that I needed to make a change…to do what I love. The main lesson that I receive after working with you is “to get what you have never had, you must do what you have never done.” That gave me the final push to create a plan and start my own business doing what I love helping kids through the arts.”

Christina M.

 

“Wow – This all sounds fabulous, Alex. How can I get my hands on this program?”

Here’s how it works:

After you sign up for the program, you’ll be sent an email with directions to retrieve your Coaching Materials and Bonus Items, as well as an invitation to join the Facebook exclusive group coaching page forum. Then you’ll receive confirmations and dial-in details to join the online webinars.

Each week you’ll have assignments to complete from the program. You’ll need to attend the webinars or listen to the replays each week and go through the worksheets.

Then each day you’re going to plan ahead for the next day, and each day you’re going to take one step. That’s all, just one step!

Is there a catch? You really need to DO the work and follow-up on the daily action.

But no worries, that’s where the personal accountability from me and the Facebook group page comes in.

Some Frequently Asked Questions I get:

 

But Alex, what if it’s really not the right time for me to start right now?

When is it EVER a good time to start a new project? It’s never the right time to start. You just have to start!

I started my new coaching/training business, while I was taking master’s courses and still managed to write a book all at the same time. Plus I had a lot of other professional and personal things going on at the same time. I got through it, and I’m happy I did it. Now I have those things in my life, and I’m a better person for it!

So you can definitely accomplish your goal now. It’s only 4 weeks! You just have to want it badly enough and be willing to commit to make it happen.

 

But Alex, what if I fail again?

Do you trust yourself and your ability to handle this goal? I do! I believe in you because I’ve seen massive transformation in myself and in tons of clients I’ve worked with.

Are you willing to commit to get what you want, once and for all?

Maybe last time you didn’t have the right resources or support to make it through all the way. If you did, you probably would have done what you needed to do to complete your goal.

But you have the support NOW!

Plus I’m here to ensure you DON’T fail or drop out halfway through! If you succeed, I succeed…. And I’m a Success coach NOT a failure coach!

 

But Alex, I think it’s too expensive!

Yes, it is a significant investment in yourself. What are you willing to invest in yourself to get the transformation you want and deserve?

Aren’t you WORTH IT?

More importantly, what is it really costing you and what are you missing out on by not have what you really want?

  • the extra income to take the family vacation you’ve been dreaming of, or buy the car you’ve been imagining yourself driving for years;
  • the sales amount you need this month to earn that bonus and promotion (plus that free trip!);
  • the extra publicity and exposure that could help you earn a 6-figure income;
  • the degree or certification you know will provide additional income and credibility in your industry, but you’ve been putting off;
  • the confidence and esteem from yourself, your friends and family knowing you can accomplish any goal you set your mind on

 

Let’s do a simple exercise.

Step 1: Write down where you are now in terms of a measurable number (income, sales, weight, education, etc): ________________________

Step 2: Write down where you could be if you got through your goal in 4 weeks: ________________________

Step 3: Now evaluate the difference: ________________________

This is what it’s costing you to stay where you are right now. What is that worth to you? In some cases, thousands of dollars, or even priceless!

I know where you’ve been, and as soon as I started to get the right support I needed, massive improvement happened in my life. I only wish I would have gotten support sooner, although I learned some really invaluable lessons along my journey!

***Affiliates, p.s. – ask me how you can get 25% referral fee or credit just by recommending someone who buys any of the programs and sticks to it a week. Your friend will get the high-performance results they need in their life, and you will get rewarded too***

 

But Alex, I just don’t have the money right now!

If this is really important to you, what solution can we find?

If you told your friend that you needed something really badly, but couldn’t afford it right now, wouldn’t he/she help you find a solution?

Let’s find the right solution for you. Maybe it’s one of the payment plans. Maybe it’s coming up with a budget for yourself this month so you don’t spend too much money on discretionary items. In my former life I was a banker and helped my clients with their income and expense habits in addition to their business budgets, and I still hold workshops and training programs to help my clients create financial freedom. So I can definitely help you find a solution!
