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 have a roadmap for you to follow, to start your coaching practice. Consider it arm floaties or training wheels for just starting out. I will help you take your very first steps to creating the proper mindset to go for it! Kinda like screwing up the courage to jump off the high dive. This roadmap will help you do it and show you how you can get the courage to leap!
