We All Have a Champion in Us
“We all have that person in us that we think of as a hero – and we call that our champion. It’s just so many times, we keep them bottled inside, and you want to have the champion be on the outside. You want the outer champion, not just the inner. And so, I just help people to be able to tap into that champion.” -Silvica Rosca
I recently sat down with career and mental performance coach Silvica Rosca to talk about her insights and experiences working at Raytheon for 10 years before leaving to start her own coaching business this year. Rosca’s company, Business Brains, Inc., is a business that specializes in career and mental performance coaching directed towards businesspeople – something unique that Rosca offers to entrepreneurs and women in male-dominated industries.
As a new female in the heavily male-favored industry of entrepreneurship, Rosca struggled with lack of self-confidence because of her lack of entrepreneurial experience. But she soon realized that to push forward, you must realize that you do have value to provide. She had so many years under her belt working as a team leader in the defense industry, and that was a unique value that she brought to the table. After spending the past 10 years developing her collaborative and teamwork skills, she discovered a natural talent for coaching and helping others improve their work and personal lives.
As an immigrant from Romania, Rosca is also able to appeal to international audiences. She stresses the unique set of values she has developed, stating, “As an immigrant growing up in the States, your mind prepares you for challenges differently.” She uses these values to relate to other immigrants and international residents in her online content. This aspect of her persona produces so much value to people not only overseas, but also here in America. Our country consists of a huge population of immigrants, and to be able to appeal to that side in all of us is quite a valuable skill to have.
Speaking Engagements and Online Content
In her speaking engagements and online content, Rosca stresses that women should not see their gender as an obstacle, but rather as an advantage. She explains that women tend to be more intuitive and thus are better able to relate to people and to nurture relationships. This can be an incredibly powerful skill in the entrepreneurial world, which often involves ridiculous amounts of networking and pitching. Although Rosca’s content is particularly engaging towards women, she has a sizable audience of men as well. People from all over the world have reached out to her to say that her content was just the push they needed to take that scary step – whether it be quitting their job as a truck driver to work as an office manager or even something as simple as asking for the raise or promotion that they deserved.
One of the major themes that the Cal State Fullerton alum stresses in all her speaking engagements and online content is the concept of “Champion”. She believes that “we all have that person in us that we think of as a hero – and we call that our champion. It’s just so many times, we keep them bottled inside, and you want to have the champion be on the outside. You want the outer champion, not just the inner. And so, I just help people to be able to tap into that champion.” She was able to tap into her own champion using just her own life experiences, and now she teaches other people how to do the same.
Mental Performance Coaching
Rosca has recently partnered with Extreme Focus, a company that has been coaching elite athletes for the past 30 years, to create a coaching program that takes the concept and mindset of athletic champions and applies it to the business world. Extreme Focus’s athlete coaching program has been recently approved by the Pentagon to be implemented in the US Armed Forces, so Rosca is looking to leverage that accreditation and provide value to the businesspeople of the world as well.
With all these exciting developments in place, we have also invited Ms. Rosca to Pro Desk Space for a new series of workshops focused on applying the mental performance training of athletes to drive business results.

But seriously, do you really want to miss out on an opportunity like this to develop and improve your personal and professional life?
