Happy Teacher Happy Child

Name: Casey Landry

Location: Fort Smith, AR 

Type of Business:
Education Coaching, Consultation, Staff Development

What does your business do?
Provide support to administrators and teaching staff in the early childhood and elementary industry through individual, team, or group coaching, program consultation, and customized staff development.

When and why did you start the biz?
I started my business to positively impact the foundational years of a child's life by supporting the educational professionals who provide their care.

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
Kitchen table of a small 2 bedroom house in very rural Oklahoma.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
The toughest part of running my biz is developing an online presence that schools, centers, and educational organizations will respond to (for some reason, they prefer on-site when online is more focused with less opportunity to be distracted).

What's the most fun part?
Watching an educator grow in their competency and seeing their excitement and love for the profession return. Educating young ones is a mission of the heart!

Anything you would have done differently?
I would have been better prepared to explain the concept of online coaching and consulting to emphasize the importance of focused sessions while also addressing the value of in-the-moment coaching in the classroom.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
I am seeking to level-up my coaching credentials, writing a resource book, and accrediting several courses already developed. I also plan to present at several state and regional conferences.

What advice do you have for others?
Don't overthink and overanalyze! I would have been much further along had I just put "pen to paper" and developed what I am seeking from other resources. I'm writing the book I am needing as the resource for others.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
I will be utilizing Idea Café to gather more ideas, knowledge, and connections to build my business to be nationally recognized. I do want to expand to the point I have multiple employees and departments.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Arkansas Tech University, Masters in Educational Leadership

Prior jobs or business?
Mom, affiliate marketer, health, fitness, and wellness coach.

Favorite Food?
Blackberry Cobbler

What are your pets' names?
Coco, Cinnamon and Martin

Do any of these pets help with your biz?
Stress relievers

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
Dr. Sara Miller (mentor, coach, and all-around inspiration) invited me to be a part of an education coaching project with training from the Hudson Institute. Later, she approached me about taking over her website and education coaching concept to continue her vision.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
Dr. Sara Miller and Dr. Rhonda Ellis (another master coach and mentor)
