Meet your Women in Biz Network Sales and Business Development Mentor!
Tell us about your business
The most rewarding aspect of coaching women entrepreneurs and leaders is watching the ripple effect: as their confidence grows and they create the revenue they desire, there’s this beautiful unfolding of feminine energy in the business world. This makes a difference first and foremost for the woman herself – to see herself as capable, confident, and successful. Watching that transformation happen – no matter how successful someone already is – is something that drives me to continually grow and improve myself as a coach. Because it matters. I truly believe that if you are alive now, in this moment, that it matters. That you matter. And that’s why at the heart of it I do what I do. If I can empower women to own their voice, own their message and be paid what they’re worth, I get to be a part of a transformation in business that’s happening all over the world. Right now.
Andrea Ivanka is best known for helping her clients with high-conversion enrollment & sales strategies that feel genuine and authentic.

An international Speaker and Business Coach, Andrea comes from a background that has always included educating and empowering aspiring female entrepreneurs and business leaders. She’s always been fascinated with what differentiates the successful from the less-successful.
She has served over 1000 clients, spoken to over 10,000 people worldwide, been on TV shows, and shared the stage with media tycoons, multi-millionaires and A-list celebrities.

She is committed to their growth and knows that with empowered leadership, the world will change – one person, one company – at a time. She is Board Certified as a Trainer of NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming), NLP Coach Trainer, Hypnosis Trainer, and Timeline Therapy™ Trainer.
When she realized many of her female clients weren’t creating the success they wanted while using business teachings derived from a traditional masculine perspective, she set out to take an integrated approach to help her clients align their businesses with who they are. Since then, her clients’ results have exploded! Now, she’s on a mission to share this connected leadership approach with as many people as possible.
Andrea loves travelling by train, adores Mexican food, and can say “Thank-you” in at least eight different languages. Her guilty pleasure: Korean dramas. Feel free to say on Facebook or Twitter @AndreaIvanka. She’d love to hear from you! Learn more about Andrea at www.andreaivanka.com
What is your favourite piece of business advice?
One of the best pieces of advice that I’ve received is to stop lone-wolfing it. It’s so easy to have a mentality like “It’s easier for me to just get this done myself.” But at the end of the day (as I’ve learned!) it just leads to overwhelm, burnout and frustration.
So two things:
First, make sure you have the right team – whether you’re starting with outsourcing or hiring, but get support with the things that drain your energy and make you tear your hair out.
Second, be a part of a community where you can grow and learn as well – where there are people who hold the bar high for you to up-level and see you as fully capable and able to accomplish what you desire with your life. If you have to invest to be a part of that community – do it. I can say wholeheartedly that this is what’s made the biggest difference for me. Anyone can learn tactics and strategy, but it’s worth the world when you can find a like-minded community who will lift you up and stretch you to grow.
What hobbies are you currently exploring?
Right now I’m currently enjoying some time off travelling! I’ve been back and forth from San Diego 7x in the last 8 months and that included a road-trip from Toronto to San Diego of 7 weeks away from home. So now it’s all about re-grounding myself with some self care, yoga and getting ready for a new year.
