Nneka Kelly, Working Mystic

Nneka Kelly Profile PicHi, I’m Nneka Kelly, the President and Founder of Working Mystic. I help brilliant professionals, like you, build your business so that you can say goodbye to corporate for good.

Before working with me, clients usually have questions about the results they will get and how I will work with them. I’ve answered a few of those questions below…

Why do you help entrepreneurs build their business?

For this one, I need to share with you the moment I decided to actively pursue my freedom.

In 2002, I was sitting in a boardroom in Germany talking to the CEO of a company about changing his software to meet my client’s needs.

As I was sitting there, I heard jets overhead on their way to war in Iraq.

It really put my life in perspective.

On one hand, the world was about to erupt into war. On the other hand, I was sitting comfy talking about some database that I was certain would be replaced in a few years.

I felt trapped – like my life was meaningless.

A year later, I left that job. In my resignation letter, I wrote that I was leaving to exercise my right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

In short, I gave my employer the finger.

I went into business with a business plan and a year of savings. However, I had no idea how to structure all my newly found free time so that I could be productive, and I had absolutely no support.

I didn’t realize that leaving your job to build your business is much more than a money game.

It’s a confidence game.

6 Months later, I ran out of money.

I was flat broke, no food in the fridge, and WORSE…I was back on the job market.

I jumped out of the plane with no parachute.

Fast forward 10 years.

When I started Working Mystic in 2012, I leveraged the lessons learned from that experience.

In one year, I was able to walk away from a 6-figure job and into my thriving business.

Now, I help my clients do the same.

Who are your clients?

Brilliant professionals, like you, who are ready to say adios to the corporate world and build your dream business AND life.

You’re hella smart, self-motivated fire crackers.

You are experts in your chosen profession.

You may not know what business you want yet, OR you may have been working on it for 1-2 years.

You just know that you want to do your own thing. You want the time, money, and energy to live your life on your terms.

There’s just one small thing…you HATE asking for help because you can figure ANYTHING out.

Yet, you recognize that business building requires a new skillset (not an MBA), AND a new mindset. While you know you can figure this out, you want to accelerate your learning curve and business growth.

Most of all, you’re READY to commit your time, money, and energy to your business.

Is there anyone you WON’T work with?

Working with me is not for everyone.

To be successful, you will need to let go of old stories, excuses, reasons and rules that have held you back.

Not everyone is willing to release these.

If you are attached to your story, or you want to argue for your limitations, then I encourage you to work with someone else. Also, if you need a quick fix or want a silver bullet, I encourage you to work with someone else.

Will I have homework?

Why yes, you will!

However, this isn’t head work.

You’ll have assignments to actually take action in your business.

After you take action, we re-group at the next session. Together, we go over what worked and didn’t work. We make a few small changes. Then, you take action again.

This way, you get faster results by building momentum in your business and shortening your learning curve.

Does this really work?

YES!!! It does!

Here’s just one example of a client success story:

“Before I started working with Nneka, I was very unhappy at my job. I felt like a victim and really trapped. I could not see my value. I was not getting paid enough with my job, or charging enough in my business.

While working with Nneka, I got clear on my finances. This was very important to me. Nneka really walked me through it. She held me accountable. Sorting through my finances helped me to see all the money that I did have, and where it was going.

Nneka worked with me to establish habits to start my day. Now, when I go to my job, I’ve already done the most important things for me. I go to work feeling complete. I feel calm and accomplished.

3 Days after implementing one of the tools Nneka provided, I got a raise!

In business, she helped me to see how much my work was worth and establish my new rates in 3 easy steps.

All told, I doubled my income!

More important than the money, I started to open up. My whole life changed. I became more whole – more me.”

May I contact your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?

Absolutely! Take a moment to go to the Success Stories page and read all of them. See which ones resonate with you – either because you the person got the results you are looking for, or maybe they were in a similar situation when they got started. Feel free to email or call them to ask about their results from working with me.

What results can I expect?

As you consistently refine and take the next best step in your business, you can expect to:

  • Generate reliable income so that you feel confident as a business owner
  • Get clear on who you want to work with
  • Create a compelling message that will make your prospective client raise their hand and say, “I want that!”
  • Connect with your ideal client in ways that are fun for you
  • Build a never-ending referral source with less than it costs for daily coffee
  • Set up systems to stay in front of your clients even while you’re sleeping
  • Achieve your business goals
  • Shorten your learning curve for rapid results
  • Create strategic partnerships so someone else can toot your horn
  • Become a marketing maven so you never have to worry about getting a client again
  • Receive customized strategies to boost your business momentum
  • Enjoy your life AND make money in your business!

How long will it take to get results?

Your results and when they come are ultimately up to you. They also depend on how long you’ve been in business, and how much you put into the assignments.

That said, virtually all clients see results within the first couple of months in the form of clarity about their business message, referrals from folks in their network, and more prospects becoming paying clients.

How are you different from other “business coaches”?

In my prior career, I was a project manager for a boutique consulting firm. Our firm specialized in implementing IT solutions for state revenue agencies. I led projects that generated over $10 million dollars annually.

When you’re in corporate trying to build a business while managing your life; your time and energy are precious.

You want a plan to build your business AND safely exit your day job.

My experience as a project manager and successful business owner combined with weekly one-on-one private coaching sessions provide a customized plan for your business success.

BTW, what does Working Mystic even mean?

Simply put, mindset matters.

Business building is THRILLING!!!

It can also be downright scary.

You are living out loud.

From time to time, you need a safe space to be vulnerable. A space where you can challenge long held beliefs that may no longer serve you. A space to adopt new beliefs.

One of the surprising reasons clients are happy to work with me is that they have a safe space to do the emotional work.

They can be vulnerable without judgement.

More than that, they move past lots of limiting mindsets that they didn’t even know they had because they were so buried.

Who knew that business building was also soul work?

Working Mystic blends the two.

How much do you cost?

Your level of investment depends on the program you choose. As an example, Business Elite clients invest over $12,000 a year. We work together to take their business from start up to multiple 6-figures.

Do you work on a per session basis?

I don’t, and here’s why…

I want to help you build a sustainable business with reliable income.

For that, you need to take consistent action, stay committed to your success, and develop a relationship with your business.

Like all good relationships, that takes time.

I want to work with you, where do I get started?

Awesome!!! Sounds like you’re ready to build the business and life of your dreams!
