Today we’d like to introduce you to Monique Sar.
Hi Monique, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I started my journey in finance. I was one of the top female financial advisors at my firm and had a moment where I realized I did not want to be in this field for the rest of my life. I went off and jumped into a startup and completely failed. After massive financial losses, I was so ready to just get a traditional job and just recover mentally and financially. My partner encouraged me to give the entrepreneur thing one more go and so from there, I started my consulting practice. After a few years of being the frontwoman on social media, I was featured in an article on Yahoo! Finance as one of the top influencers on Clubhouse. From this exposure, I actually reconnected with my old mentor, Ben Newman, one of the Top 50 Keynote Speakers in the World and Performance Coach. He presented me with the opportunity to be on his team and serve as President of BNC Speakers. From there, the rest is history! I truly feel like I have the dream job of being able to help create an impact on a massive scale. With some of our clients going for their first 6, 7, 8, or even 9 figures, our team is able to provide top keynotes, performance coaching, and more. I am very honored for this opportunity and I’ve set myself up as the speaker’s matchmaker. I get to match top speakers to top organizations in order to create a massive impact for themselves, their teams, and their families. Some of the speakers and coaches I represent have achieved the top 1% of what they do, including a roster of pro athletes, hall of fame athletes, champions, executive leaders, investors, and more!
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It was definitely a tough road at the start. There were so many times where I feared failure and what would happen if I failed again. I soon learned that running towards failure is the best thing that you CAN do. I learned so much along this journey and was able to come through on the other side and rebuild even higher than I had before. We need to normalize embracing failure, making mistakes, and falling flat on our faces in order to learn from these experiences and grow. A lot of this stems from the belief you might have in yourself. When I was facing these challenges, I was not confident in my abilities and definitely not confident in my choices. I was worried I would make the same mistakes again and make a fool of myself. I had a lot of personal things going on and soon realized that life is too short and we are the main character in our stories. If I wasn’t able to overcome adversity and save myself, then who would?
