Vladimir used to work as an executive for a small university and held that role for 12 years. 5 years into that role, he knew that it was not something that he wanted to do forever. At that time, he realized entrepreneurship was his calling and decided to launch a dating site.After 2 years of development, the dating site was launched, but Vladimir had difficulty getting members and growing the business. So, he decided to learn marketing, lead generation, and Facebook ads to help the business. As his business started getting some traction, an unforeseen problem presented itself, and he ended up closing down the dating site.

After everything that happened, his heart still wanted to pursue the entrepreneurial path. Using the skills he learned through running his business, he started hosting workshops, and he found success with that. He then pivoted into the coaching business that he now owns and guides other people to create success for themselves.

    Tweetable Quotes:

    “Coaching is transformational. There’s been plenty of times in my life where I said to myself, okay, I know I have the knowledge. I know I have the expertise, but for whatever reason, I can’t reach or get to the next step. And it was a coach that I was able to lean on and then I was able to work and that allowed me to pivot and take the next step.” – Vladimir Adonis
