Welcome back to The GenerationXit Podcast. Today I’m pleased to introduce you to an inspiring couple, Susana and Luke Hancock. The Hancocks are a location independent husband and wife team, currently based in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand. In 2016 they set up a consultancy, training and online coaching business which empowers people to lead more meaningful, purpose-driven lives, called www.coachingselfempowerment.com. Since they started in 2016, they have supported over 500 individuals through their work.
How The Hancocks Developed Their Online Coaching Business
Susana and Luke have an interesting background. Now in the early forties, they both left high-flying corporate careers in Europe after experiencing burnout in their respective careers. After spending time as individuals travelling and reflecting on what they wanted in life, they met in 2011, got married, and moved to Asia together to set up their dream business.
www.coachingselfempowerment.com uses an holistic approach to deliver coaching-led training around personal development, self empowerment, career development and nutrition. The business also provides consultancy to organisations on urban sustainability, personal development and healthy nutrition. The business also provides 1:1 coaching to individuals.
Please note, this interview was recorded before the Covid-19 pandemic took hold and as such it makes reference to a few ‘in room’ training courses in various Asian cities, which no longer occur. Now the couple are focussing entirely on their online coaching and they are also in the process of transitioning their ‘in room’ training to an entirely online course.
