My name is Mica and over the past few years, I’ve had the privilege of coaching 100+ entrepreneurs, founders and startup leaders. As a coach, part of my job is to ask the 'right questions' so I can help my clients gain perspective and overcome their challenges. Over time, I've noticed that while such challenges are complex and vary greatly, the techniques used to overcome them are quite similar.
This is what made me want to put together some of the various questions and practices, which have benefited my clients during our sessions, into this set of journals – so they can use them on their own outside of our sessions, and so others in the startup ecosystem can access them too.
I have personally spent the last decade in various different capacities in the startup ecosystem – as a team lead, COO, founder, investor, mentor and coach. In addition to my startup experience, I previously worked in investment banking. So I know too well what it’s like to work in high-pressure roles, and how overwhelming it can feel when you can’t reconcile your high-achieving nature with the toll it can take on your life. But I believe that with the right toolkit each of us can achieve a more compassionate and enjoyable kind of high-performance – one that doesn’t compromise on either our aspirations or our wellbeing.
