Evaluating our beliefs can be a tough process. We all have different ones, based on our individual experiences, and they often shape the way we see the world. But it’s important to question them from time to time, to make sure they’re still serving us well. After all, our beliefs subconsciously program how we react to things that happen in our lives. And if we’re not careful, they can hold us back from achieving our full potential.
In this episode, Jen Du Plessis sits down with Robert Peterson, host of the Podcast ‘Add Value 2 Entrepreneurs‘ & Co-Founder of Add Value 2 Life Coaching. Listen along as Robert shares with Jen how to live above the line of courage and re-programming our subconscious.

To listen into our podcast so that we can hopefully provide you with what you need to break through your glass ceilings. So with that said, my guest today is Robert Peterson. He is the host of the podcast, add value to entrepreneurs, which. I’ve been a guest on, which is really good, um, which is fun. And he’s also the co-founder of ad value to life coaching.
Um, he helps entrepreneurs shift their mindset and reach their dreams. So we are specifically going to be talking about limiting beliefs and manifesting good things in your world, in your life and in your, in your, uh, business as well. Um, he’s trained in conflict coaching. Relationship coaching, um, speaking training and coaching.
He uses his vast toolbox to coach business owners, as they struggle to aim and aim to grow their businesses to the next level. And of course this includes life too, uh, because he started out in Christian ministry. So I know there’s an aspect of that as well. So welcome to the show. Robert, we’re delighted to have you.
Well, Jen, thank you so much for having me and looking forward to a great conversation.
Yeah, me too. So let’s, let’s, uh, kind of start, you know, I mean, I, I mentioned that you are, you know, doing some mindset coaching and some conflict coaching relationship coaching, where did you learn all this? Where is this?
You know, you said you have this toolbox, right. So how did you build that toolbox? Where did that all stem from?
Well, I mean, it started obviously with Christian ministry, so, um, Wow, long time ago. So 2020 some odd years ago made the decision to go into ministry. You know, got a degree in Bible. Um, bachelor’s degree in Bible and my wife and I became missionaries to south America.
Um, but our mission work wasn’t, uh, you know, directly. You know, trying to convert people. We were actually partnering with Columbian pastors and coaching them through, build, creating a church. And we called it church planting, but really they don’t need help in preaching and teaching or the Bible. They needed help in the business aspects of writing, growing, running a church.
And so we really came alongside them and, and help them, you know, with all the processes and systems to, to make their church a business. And. And I, and I, and for some listening that might sound, um, Odd, but the truth is a church is a business, right?
It has income. It has expenses. It has all of those things.
It has to manage people. It has to manage volunteers. And so there’s a lot of aspects to, to running a church that is very similar to running a business and that, and that was our primary role there. And then I spent, um, 10 years as a pastor of. Helping our church with its nonprofit partners. So 10% of the church budget every year, um, in this case, 150,000 to $200,000 a year was given a way to support other ministries.
And my role was to maintain those partnerships and was really working to build those into relationships and coaching those partners in their ministry in life, so that when they had challenges, when they had troubles, when they had struggles. They would communicate with the church and say, Hey, we need some help in this area.
We need, you know, we’re working on this. Um, and that was, that was really changing the model from transactional. Just this exchange of, of a check to, you know, a relationship where, you know, we really, we really care about you. We really wanna make sure that you you’re successful in the work that you’re doing.
Yeah. And that kind of laid the groundwork for, um, More coaching when, when that Christian ministry job went away because of a leadership change. Um, I decided to go into coaching. I’d been certified through John Maxwell as a speaker trainer, coach, and John also had come out of ministry and was now, you know, teaching leadership and business.
And so here I am assuming I’d be this great leader trainer going to all these companies and, and train leaders. And the truth is I don’t like companies . And so, so I spent the first year really exploring, wow, who is it that I really am, you know? Called to serve, who feels like a natural, um, fit for my work.
And it really turns out to be entrepreneurs because entrepreneurs are independent spirits, a lot like missionaries, and they’re doing something that very few people do. And, and, and they’re out there alone working on their own and they need a support system and they need people that believe in them and they need people to help ’em, you know, beyond just their business.
Right. And so my role has kind of been helping focus on them. And they’re, you know, working on their business instead of in their business. And most entrepreneurs get caught in their business and spend all their time. If I just work harder, if I just work harder, if I just work harder, I’ll get to where I want.
Yes. And the truth is get working harder. Won’t get you where you want until you take care of, you know, what’s going on between your ears.
Yeah. Yeah, I totally, I totally believe that. I love the in and on. We’ll talk about that in just a minute. Um, because I have something I wanna add to that. Um, and, uh, so I wanted, um, thank you for sharing all that.
