As business owners and entrepreneurs, we have many questions running in a loop in our heads. Most of those are judger questions that limit our scope of achievement and keep us stuck. Dr. Sabrina welcomes April Stroink to the podcast, and April shares her incredible story of using one of Tap the Potential’s most popular tools, the Choice Map, to turn her worst year in business into her best year. The key to changing her outcomes was changing the questions she asked herself. Join us for this powerful conversation with April!

April Stroink is a money coach, financial advisor, and certified Profit First professional who specializes in helping people create and enjoy financial well-being in their business and personal lives. She’s the creator of The Money Fix, a suite of programs to increase financial literacy for entrepreneurs. In her previous life, April managed multiple investment teams throughout Atlantic Canada for a national finance company. She is also the owner and operator of a successful Halifax retail operation. April is a “money coach,” a supportive guide who helps people understand and feel confident about finances and future goals. Known for her empathy and judgment-free coaching, she combines her expertise with her experience of running her family business, and she volunteers on several community boards as she splits her time between Halifax and Soley Cove, Nova Scotia.
