Turning Challenges into Triumphs: Jean Kostal’s Journey to $20k Months

We’re excited to share a story from our recent interview with Jean Kostal, a talented member of the GSD Inner Circle. Jean’s journey is inspiring and it will resonate with many of you.

Jean started as a freelance web designer, facing the challenge of striking a balance between work and family. She was bringing in about $5,000 a month before joining the GSD Inner Circle and catapulting her earnings to $20,000 monthly! This leap wasn’t just a financial win; it was a triumph of redefining her business focus and finding a sustainable work-life balance.

Embracing Change for Growth

A pivotal moment for Jean was her decision to leave a steady agency job to prioritize her family’s needs. While daunting, this step into the world of freelancing opened doors to flexibility and personal growth. Jean learned quickly the importance of focusing on your ideal clients and being selective about the projects you undertake. This shift from a ‘take what you can get’ approach to a more strategic mindset was a game changer for her.

Process and Delegation: The Keys to Scaling

Jean shared the importance of processes and systems in scaling her business. From working solo to building a process-driven team exemplifies how focusing on a structured approach and efficient delegation will lead to sustainable growth.

The Strength of Community and Support

Jean also realized the power of community. Entrepreneurship can be a lonely journey, but through GSD Inner Circle, Jean found a network of like-minded individuals who offered support, advice, and a sense of belonging. This aspect of group coaching, coupled with our one-on-one sessions, proved invaluable in her growth.

If you’re feeling stuck or unsure about the next steps in your entrepreneurial journey, Jean’s story is the perfect example of what can be achieved with the right guidance, community support, and courage.
