Alright – so today we’ve got the honor of introducing you to Barbie Armenta. We think you’ll enjoy our conversation, we’ve shared it below.
Barbie, thanks for taking the time to share your stories with us today Let’s jump to the end – what do you want to be remembered for?
It was during the pandemic when I really started thinking about the idea of legacy. I heard a song called the blessing and it talks about having favor upon your children and their children. If there is one thing that I would want my grandchildren to know is how I loved people. With Brave:1 it is all about empowering women to have and be all that God has for them. This is our one life, live it to the full!
Barbie, love having you share your insights with us. Before we ask you more questions, maybe you can take a moment to introduce yourself to our readers who might have missed our earlier conversations?
I spent almost 30 years working in the beauty industry and always loved working with clients to make them look and feel their best, but I also enjoyed working with stylist and salon owners to grow in their business. When the opportunity came along to be a life coach, it felt like what I was created to do. I never dreamed it would grow into what it is now and how it continues to evolve. I now coach one on one, I lead freedom Workshops, and I host my annual event The Brave Gathering. Everything that I do is about empowering women to have their most authentic and purposeful life. I want them to know that no matter where you are or what you have been through, in relationships or business, it is never too late for a fresh start.
Any advice for growing your clientele? What’s been most effective for you?
The short answer is authenticity. I always want to be the same person in person and online. Working with a life coach is a personal decision. If my potential client only knows me from social media, I want to make sure they know the real me.
We’d love to hear about how you keep in touch with clients.
I believe one of the most important things is consistency, especially when it comes to social media. This is another place authenticity comes in handy. I am not always trying to follow the latest trend on Instagram. I am my brand. The colors I use are my favorites, the language I use are things that I say. If you are always chasing the latest trends, you will be exhausted. Be you, show up regularly, and serve your audience.
