Celebrating 10 Years of Capes Coaching

On April 1st, 2004, Capes Coaching opened its doors with the mission to serve and empower our artistic community. We wrote our first business plan, got a loan through the Small Business Administration, rented a tiny office space in Union Square and began to coach. We simply would not be here, 10 years later, if it weren’t for you, and we would like to take this opportunity to honor you and all that you’ve meant to us throughout the years. We are forever grateful...

To our family: Thank you for raising us, educating us, supporting us, investing in us and believing in what we do. We’ve had the opportunity to make a difference and it’s all because of you.

To our friends: Thank you for listening, for being our champions and reminding us that work is better when we take time off to be with friends.

To our coaches / mentors / therapists / acupuncturists, etc.: Let’s be honest, two sisters having babies and running a business together can get “messy” at times. Even coaches need coaches, and your guidance and support have kept us in the game. Thank you for helping us stay focused on what really matters. And to our coach, MH — you’ve been there for us since day one.  We are so blessed to be working with you. You’re a rock star!

To Capes Coaching staff past and present: Thank you for bringing your skills and talents to our company, and for being patient with us as we’ve navigated through the ups and downs of running a small business. Capes Coaching is undoubtedly stronger because of you. And to our office lothario, BK — you are our touchstone. Thank you for winning our hearts with that kick-ass cover letter 7 yrs. ago!

To Capes Coaching clients past and present: Thank you for showing up and doing the work: for saying your goals out loud, being honest, being messy, asking for help, staying accountable, taking risks, sharing your successes, learning from your failures, valuing your creativity, telling your friends about us, giving us your feedback, sharing your resources and inspirational stories with your peers, and for sticking with coaching especially when it’s pushed you outside of your comfort zone. Quite simply, we are in awe of what you do and it is a privilege to be a part of your journey.

To everyone we have yet to work with: We know what it’s like out there and we want you to know that you don’t have to do it alone. Whenever you’re ready, we’re here to listen to you…to support you…and to help you realize your dreams.

Here's to the next 10!
