IMU 038: How Carolin Soldo, a German Immigrant, Tapped Into The Power of Passion To Go From Losing 80 lbs. To Getting Her First 4,000 Clients For Her Coaching Business!

What if I told you that in order to reach the level of success that you truly desire, you need to have a BURNING PASSION?

And what if I told you that the process to discover that passion, whether it’s passion in life or passion in business, is fairly simple? 

And what if I told you that once you discover that passion, you can lose 80 lbs, then start a successful business, then get 4,000 clients for that business, then build a successful coaching company, then….? 🙂

This is Polish Peter and welcome to episode 38 of Immigrant Masters Unite.  Today, I have Carolin Soldo, a powerful immigrant from Germany who did just that!

Carolin Soldo is an International Business Coach with an MBA in Marketing. She’s the founder of multiple premier business programs including Brand Your Passions®, From Passion to Profits®, and The Powerhouse Coach®.

Carolin immigrated from Germany to the U.S. when she was only 19 years old to be with the love of her life, Boris, a Croatian refugee fleeing a war-torn country. After having spent more than a year apart, Caroline made the leap to follow him with nothing but trust in her husband and BIG dreams.

Struggling to get out of poverty, even though she didn’t speak much English, she managed to land a low paying job in telemarketing that improved her position enough to go to school. Passionate and driven, Carolin worked extremely hard and in 2006 she received her Master’s Degree in marketing.

Around that time, Carolin started to climb the corporate ladder in her chosen field of marketing. Although the job paid well, it left her feeling stuck, trapped, and completely unfulfilled. This led to a search for a new sense of purpose that came after the birth of her second son in 2009. She began studying health and dropped 80 pounds to compete in multiple bodybuilding competitions.

Carolin’s fitness lead naturally into a brand new health coaching career that just couldn’t get off the ground. She spent $22,000 trying to make it work by herself. Frustrated and determined to get results, she finally decided to go all-in with a top coach to help her turn the business around. After building her coaching practice to 6-figures, she applied her business know-how and expanded from the health niche into business coaching.

Today, Carolin serves an international client base as a premium business coach. She’s helped hundreds of new and aspiring coaches build thriving coaching practices by creating powerful brands, sharing their message with the world, designing signature programs, automating their marketing systems and more. This holistic approach allows Carolin and her clients to leverage the time they invest in their work, so they can live a life of freedom and luxury and spend time with their families and loved ones.

And today, when you listen to this podcast episode, you’ll discover…

  • What passion really is and why it’s soooo important to have it in your life when it comes to starting and running a successful business.  Once you discover that burning passion, nothing will stop you in life!
