Would it change your life if you had a coaching business that gave incredible lifestyle and you were really helping people? Of course the answer would be yes.
But getting a coaching business off the ground is harder than those slick sales webinars make it sound, right?
Getting good clients with money to invest is hard. There’s tons of competition and it’s not going to get any easier. No doubt this is one of the hardest things you will do in your life, and anyone telling you it’s easy is lying. Continue reading “Change Your Life”
When your thinking about starting a Coaching Practice, or any business for that matter, it is best to stay in your lane. What does that mean?

There are folks out there who can help. But if you think there is a quick fix to a six-figure business, you must also be the type that believes a pill will make you skinny and physically fit with no effort on your part.
3 Coaching Business Myths:
1) A 6 Week Program will make you six figures
2) Following just one step will turn it all around
3) “How I made six figures in 3 months!” But fail to mention it took eight years to get there.
CRAWL – WALK – RUN
When I was first learning Sales – my mentor told me it’s just like growing up. Crawl – Walk – Run! There are no shortcuts, and there is no Magic Word to make you a successful salesperson. You must put your time in and learn.
That does not mean you cannot start your coaching practice soon. What it means is to have realistic expectations and not over commit to your success timeline. Put your toe in the water, then work your way up to your knees, float around a little, swirling your arms, legs and then start to swim. Someone probably helped you to learn to swim, they held on – waited for you to get better and then slowly let you go. Right?
YOU MUST learn to Crawl – Walk – Run in whatever endeavor you start.
You didn’t dive into the deep end of the pool and start swimming, did you? It was step by step, learning the process – learning the how – then experiencing the ups and downs of the process. The person who was helping you finally let go and you did it by yourself. Over time, you may have discovered different ways to swim that was your unique style. That is the Crawl-Walk-Run process.
It’s the same with starting your coaching practice. Some of us learn faster than others. Some will become Olympic Athletes, and others will enjoy swimming on a regular basis, but never become a Gold Medal Winner, they merely enjoy swimming and make it part of their life.

I am asked all the time “How do I find focus and do what I need to do to make shit happen?” The easy answer is gain clarity. Why Clarity? I believe if you do not understand why you want to do a “thing” or what you expect to give or to get out of it you will not be able to take the very first steps to accomplish it. You must have extreme clarity first.

Well, my story is not overly inspirational, but one that may help you when your having a bad day. In businesses handling ups, downs and disappointments are part of the gig!
A nice account that really started my year off with stars and explosions got delayed. Boy! The disappointment is real. But the deal is not dead and I am confident that it will happen. But the feeling is…well, horrible. Makes me want to curl up in a ball and cry and kick and scream like a little baby, or perhaps curl up in a ball under my blanket and binge watch Greys Anatomy or some such inane Netflix show.
