Celebrating 5 Years of Running a Strengths-Based Practice

According to MBIE, 58 percent of Kiwi businesses born in 2010 with no employees ceased to exist by 2015.
September 17th, 2022, is the fifth anniversary of running my strengths-based coaching and mentoring practice! I am proud to have survived some significant ups and downs and continue to trade as ChristopherMiller.co.NZ.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Building my income up to $24k per month in the first two years in business
  • Serving clients around the world, including the USA, Australia, Dubai, and New Zealand
  • Hiring an excellent business manager for my practice
  • Celebrating 20 years of marriage to an extraordinary woman
  • Supporting my eldest son through high school and 1st-year University, holding his first job, and maintaining his commitment to diving
  • Supporting my youngest son through to the beginning of high school and a variety of sporting achievements in basketball and diving
  • Publishing my first book (The Joy of Finding FISH – a journey of fulfillment, inspiration, success, and happiness)

As with any life, there were also some low points and challenges along the way:

  • My wife was diagnosed with a glioblastoma (brain tumour)
  • Supporting my wife through two brain surgeries and radiation therapy
  • Losing my wife to cancer and holding her hand the moment she took her last breath
  • As a result of caring for my wife, seeing my practice income reduce to $0
  • Navigating grief, and the absence of purpose and energy required to run my practice

Recently, I have begun rebuilding and am in the process of promoting my book (The Joy of Finding FISH, pictured above) and attracting new clients who are interested in building a great life and business for themselves. I look forward to the next five years and hope the highlights will outweigh the tragedies.

Here is to the next 5 years and what the future holds!
