Russell Schmidt Business Coach | Entrepreneur Coach - Russell Schmidt
Russell Schmidt looks for "teachable moments" that lead to genius.
Russell is passionate about nurturing progress and helping others create a life lived with awareness, balance, and purpose.
For Russell, who spent years as an educator before starting his financial services business, coaching is all about finding "the teachable moment. "That's number one for me," he says, "watching what happens when something we're doing lands for someone, and they say, 'Wow, that's exactly what I needed to know right now!'"
The function of a coach, Russell says, "is to help someone discover and manifest their genius. "What I appreciate about the clients is the candor, the wisdom, and the willingness with which they participate. The Program attracts a special kind of human being. There's just something about people who stick around with Strategic Coach® that's wonderful."
Russell was introduced to both entrepreneurship and coaching early on by his grandfather. "I knew him as a farmer," Russell says, "but in the truest sense of the word, he was an entrepreneur. He was also the kind of guy in the community that everybody would call when they had something they couldn't figure out. He would go, and he would figure it out for them. Russell spent two summers working for his grandfather, learning directly and by osmosis. "Only when I joined the Strategic Coach® Program, did I realize just how important that influence was."
The second big influence in Russell's life came from another summer job, when he worked on a survey crew. He wanted to go to university in Toronto, but at the end of the summer, he still didn't have enough money. The entrepreneur in charge of the crew took Russell under his wing. "He arranged to send me to Toronto and set me up with a job there. I worked for a year, then every summer all I had to do was call that company, and they gave me a summer job. That mentoring had a tremendous impact."
Russell's education ultimately led him to become a dean at Sheridan College, a highly respected school near Toronto, but he found the bureaucracy that went with the profession stifling. "Everybody got paid according to scale. If you were good at something, you didn't get recognition. It was very much status quo, maintain the organization, don't rock the boat. And I've been something of a boat-rocker most of my life."
Russell had been taking securities courses and was already thinking of retiring from education. When the college went through a restructuring period, he seized the opportunity. "There's no such thing as trying something. You have to go out and do it. So I said, 'This is it! If I don't do it now, I'm never going to do it.'"
Being an entrepreneur came with some growing pains, Russell admits.
...
"I vividly remember my first day in the Program," Russell says.
...
Over the past ten years, Russell has continued expanding his team, gaining more and more freedom in the process.
...
"I can't imagine not doing what I'm doing most days," Russell says. "If it hadn't been for Strategic Coach, I would have left financial services a long time ago. The things the Coach helped me work through have really kept me there. I've got such a great life-relative to free time, relative to travel, relative to all of the things I like to do. Why would I stop doing what I'm doing?"
Russell readily admits it isn't always easy or comfortable to have big goals, and being a coach doesn't change that. "But," he says, "if you haven't invented a bigger future and aren't willing to work on it, then it's just not going to happen!"
