Behind the Biz
8 Things You Should Know
This is a Passion-Centered Business
My mother likes to tell the story of how she once told this little girl to the right to stop singing for a minute (I’m sure to collect her thoughts) and that little girl told her “but singing is my life!” If I was showing that kind of passion as a youngster, you can imagine what I’m like now. I go the distance for my clients because I so want for them what they want for themselves. I am privileged to guide and champion them on their journey!
It’s All About You
What drew me to coaching is how client-centered it is. You’re the one driving the car, I’m just helping you navigate. I truly believe that lasting success comes when you can look inside yourself to create and walk the path you feel is right for you not when someone else lays it out for you and drags you along. It’s a one-on-one or one-on-two partnership where we get you from where you are to where you want to be. It’s transformative. We don’t spend months talking about your past; we look at what you’re doing in the moment and take the steps to move you forward.
It’s A Family Affair
Trust is a fragile thing. My business is like one of my babies, and anyone who knows me knows I don’t trust just anyone with my baby. So, I’ve surrounded myself with a family team I can truly rely on, and I strive to build that same trust with my clients. Additionally, my business is the foundation on which bricks are laid for my own family, bricks that will create a legacy my children can be proud of.
Email is Best
I make no apologies for making my family a priority, so that means that the phone is not the most accessible way to reach me without an appointment. If you want to reach out, then email is best! Also, if you are an Imani Aieshah Insider, you will get email updates, tips, and more from me via email. I hate being bombarded in my Inbox, so I promise it is tastefully spread out, once a week or every other week depending on how many newsworthy nuggets I have to share that month.

I believe a business must have heart & soul to thrive!
Honesty is Everything
The nature of my business thrives on honest communication. My clients share very personal things with me, so it’s paramount that they feel comfortable being totally up-front with me. I believe that honesty begets honesty, so I am honest with my clients about what I offer and what goes into our partnership. I am also a tell-you-like-it-is kinda gal, so I promise to give it to you straight no chaser and I ask that you do the same! Deal?
I Sell Things
I know that “selling” makes people uncomfortable because it’s gotten a bad wrap from sneaky salesman and gimmicky product pushers selling you unicorn dreams that are too good to be true, but sales is an important part of business. Basically, it’s simply an exchange: you give me something of value and I give you something of value. That’s it! And in order for me to have a biz, we’ve got to have an exchange, right?! But don’t worry…it’s mutually beneficial!
It Ain’t For Everyone
The backbone of any coaching business is the coach. And my style may not gel with you. My expectations may not work for you right now. My message and offerings may not be your cup of tea. That’s why we have a complimentary strategy session, to see if you and I are a good fit and if coaching is right for you. I won’t take you on if I think you may need other services just to get your coins in my pocket! I want you to get what you need. If it’s with me, I’m honored and grateful to be at your service. If not, that’s okay too. Click here to connect with me about your free strategy session.
Value is Paramount
Coaching is about transformation and forward motion in the direction you want to go in your relationship. Therefore, I work hard to give you stuff you can use in your life. I want you to have something of value, something that you feel good about and sticks with you long after we hang up the phone or video chat. Since coaching is centered around you, the value you get will be tailored to what you need and want. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
