“The Big Fish tools of Vision, Intention, and Bold Action are three tools that I still use every day…My ability to think bigger and achieve higher with a focus on deeply meaningful goals is a direct result of Big Fish.” — Rebecca P. Cohen, Founder and President of Rebecca Plants, LLC

I love this part of my work, where I get to share about Big Fish successes!!

Earlier this month in our March newsletter, I told you a bit about Rebecca P. Cohen, one of our amazing Big Fish, and promised to share more of her story.  So here it is!

Rebecca is Founder and President of Rebecca Plants, LLC, a content and media company she started 3 years ago to inspire families to spend time outside together to improve their well-being.

Rebecca came to the Big Fish Nation program through a “chance” recommendation from another Big Fish.  I’ll let her tell the rest of her story from here! 

While still working in the corporate world, I met [another Big Fish] Kelly Lipfirt in her shop, Urban Details, in Spring Lake, NJ just after I had registered my LLC.  

I was inspired by a NY Times article (posted at the entrance to her store) about Kelly’s departure from corporate America,  so I introduced myself to ask for her advice to someone starting their own business.  “Get a coach,” she replied.  I asked her for a recommendation, and she wrote down Big Fish Nation’s website.  Soon after, I had an introductory call with Lorin, and timed my start of the Big Fish year-long program with my exit from corporate America.  

I was drawn to the Big Fish instant support network of other female entrepreneurs, the philosophy that a wildly successful business requires work in all aspects of one’s life, Lorin’s comprehensive curriculum and facilitation through it, and the Big Fish life/business coach that also works with you during the program.

  What are 3 valuable things you have gotten from Big Fish?

The Big Fish tools of Vision, Intention, and Bold Action are three tools that I still use every day.

The 10-year vision for my life continues to have a remarkable impact on my personal and business life, and I update it once or twice a year.

My ability to think bigger and achieve higher with a focus on deeply meaningful goals is a direct result of Big Fish.  Since writing down my goals in my Big Fish vision, I:

  • Published my book (“15 Minutes Outside) and created a product line of gardening and outdoor activity guides
  • Became a Spokesmom for the National Wildlife Federation’s Be Out There movement to educate parents about the importance of giving children outdoor time
  • Launched my “Get Out of the House” TV series
  • Appear in live television news segments across the country 
  • Speak nationally for organizations from coast to coast that want to support parents and schools in getting children outside.
  • Am now securing corporate sponsorships for my brand and have some exciting BIG plans with other brands that I believe in (to be revealed soon)!

 How has the Big Fish 1-1 coaching impacted you?  

My Big Fish coach always has a way for me to find an answer to whatever challenge I face in my life or business… and usually the two are linked!  In my mind, a Big Fish coach helps me work miracles.

Anything else you’d like to share?

I recently read a statistic that 45% of people are walking around unhappy in their jobs.  I am pleased to be part of a movement of people who have found happiness in creating a business they love.

Whether someone is just starting their business, ready to take their business to the next level, or wanting to find the passion they used to have for their company, there is something impactful for everyone in the Big Fish Nation programs.
