Hi, I’m Caroline Gikonyo. I’m a Life and Business Coach and the founder of New Dawn Solutions.
I work with professional and business women who have achieved success but are overwhelmed, overworked, stuck, and possibly on the verge of burnout.
This blog is for you if you’re ready to move to the next level of your life. You have already achieved professional or business success, but you know you can do better.
I’ve been coaching since 2011. I started by helping professional women start businesses while still working. With time, I got clients who were simply interested in getting unstuck and turning their lives around.
As I worked with more women, I realized that the challenges that faced successful professional and business women were 3-fold: many didn’t have the Confidence and Courage to take Control of their lives, businesses, or career growth.
They felt as if growth, happiness, and fulfillment were beyond their reach. For some, it seemed as if success comes at a very high price. Many are at a point of despair or burnout when they reach out to me for help.
My clients have grown personally and professionally. Some moved to new jobs while others found the courage to step into business. Those in business have grown their teams and multiplied their business income. All of them are happier, freer and more fulfilled.
I believe that personal development is a journey that we undertake throughout our lives. It’s only by developing ourselves that we’re able to achieve our purpose here on earth.
My work is based on my personal, professional and business journey and I share my knowledge and experiences through writing, teaching and coaching.
Over the years, my business has evolved with the needs that are being presented by the women I work with. New Dawn Coaching brings together my coaching programs and provides a platform for women to learn, grow, excel, and become leaders in their professions or industries.
“I have a friend who’s known me since high school and we hadn’t met for some time. We met last year and a few minutes into the conversation, she said, “Linda, you have changed… no, you really have changed. It’s not about how you look, but something about you just isn’t the same.” I had just finished a 12-week coaching program with Caroline. When my friend made that comment, I realized that I was onto something. And I began to realize that at some point during the coaching, I had set myself free and was doing the same for those around me too! When you allow happiness into your life, and heal from your past, you realize that somehow even those around you (family, friends, colleagues) become happier and they too heal. And as they do so, they become very helpful to you. Coaching has helped me heal from a lot of past pain and I have become a happier person and achieved more focus and direction in life. I hope my testimony will help those with speculative ideas about coaching take the step to change their lives for the better.”Linda Gicheru

Business Startup and Growth
While I no longer take on individual business startup clients, the Create Your Dream Business blog and my first book 12 Weeks to Startup: How to Turn Your Skills, Talents, Knowledge and Experiences Into a Business are useful resources for professionals who want to get into business while still working.
If you’re not sure whether to change jobs or start a business, then request for a Strategy Session where I’ll help you get clarity and map the way forward.
You can also sign up for the 12 Weeks to Startup Facebook group and network with other women who are thinking of getting into business or starting their businesses. The group has mentors who have gone through the Create Your Dream Business coaching program.
If you’re a coach, speaker, trainer, workshop leader, mentor, or consultant contact me to find out how I can help you make more money while reducing the time you spend working.
Will Coaching Change Your Life?
“Before I started coaching with Caroline, I was overwhelmed. I was too busy and wasn’t able to plan well. My busy work and social life schedules had resulted in exhaustion and inability to fully enjoy my life. I was devoid of joy, happiness and fulfillment. Working with Caroline was great. She was able to connect with me where I was at in an honest, non-judgmental way. Initially, I was skeptical and wondered how coaching, especially when conducted via telephone, would do anything to help me, but the results were awesome. I’m happier today, have higher self-esteem, have become a better planner, and my business has grown. My marriage, and in particular the communication with hubby, has improved. My self-esteem is now at an all-time high and I feel more confident to handle future challenges.”Anne Waweru
