What are the major challenges that face new and emerging coaches?

  • Getting started, when no one knows that you exist.
  • Under-pricing yourself.
  • How to get out of the “muddling place” with coaching–beyond 2-3 clients, and into a thriving practice
  • Working with doubt.

If you’re a new coach–or what I call an “emerging coach,” someone who has been at it for a bit but who just isn’t seeing traction happen–what are the action steps that you know need to be taken?

How are the above-mentioned challenges showing up in your business, and what are you doing to work through them?

What’s the phone call that you need to make? The resource that would help you? The thing you haven’t tried because you’re feeling afraid, but your heart is whispering to you, “Hey, I know you’re afraid, but–do this. Do this, anyway.”

A huge part of The Coaching Blueprint is the emphasis on creating some kind of plan. Without some kind of structure–a blueprint for where you want to go–it’s easy to feel like you’re floundering.

Ask yourself: What are three things you can do right now that would create some semblance of structure in your business?

Another great follow-up? What are the weak spots in your business, the places where–if enough pressure were applied–things would fracture?

By the way: Rachel W. Cole once told me, “Each of my clients has a little room in my heart.”

She’s also the wise one who once said to me, “I don’t think you need a niche, but you do need a point of view.” Snap!

There’s this massive mis-perception that for some coaches, it’s just really easy to get a life coaching practice going. Rachel W. Cole gets honest and transparent in this interview, and talks about how relationships are foundational to the practice that she grew.

Be honest: Deep down, do you think that money is bad?

Leonie Dawson–who is part of The Coaching Blueprint –has several things to say about helping you shift that! Here’s just one:

“Earning lots of money doesn’t make you anything but more of who you already are.” –Leonie Dawson

What would it be like to free yourself up from the shitty money mindsets that affect how you price your services?

In the full interview, Leonie shared with me exactly how she leveraged up her practice to make more than $300,000 in income.

Yes–six figures that start with a “3.”

Generosity is a pretty beautiful business model, and as you’ll see if you get the full Coaching Blueprint interview, she’s made it the backbone of what she does–not something she waited to do after she was able to pull in six figures.

Interview: Jennifer Lee

Interview: Jennifer Lee

There’s this saying about entrepreneurs that can be really true: “An entrepreneur is someone who will work 23 hours a day in order to avoid working one hour a day for someone else.”

A question many Coaches ask is–“How do I get it all done?”

We could talk about new day organizers and time management spreadsheets–or we could just be honest about the fact that as an entrepreneur, it probably won’t ever all be “done,” but it’s still important to take a break, anyway.

In this interview for The Coaching Blueprint, Jennifer Lee talks about how she’s created a practice for self-care that nourishes her and, I’m sure, her clients and her business practices.

 

Is overwhelm getting to you?
What does your coaching practice look like? Does the workload have any sense of fluidity to it? Are you constantly putting out fires?

In The Coaching Blueprint, there’s an entire module on workflows–because you should be running your business. Your business should NOT be running you.

Interview: Julie Daley

Interview: Julie Daley

Are you shifting with the changing paradigm of coaching?

The world of coaching is changing–not just in terms of marketing or being online, but in terms of how we work with clients.

For so long, there’s been this idea that therapy is about “therapist as expert(which does such a disservice to the enormous number of therapists out there that don’t subscribe to that idea!), and that coaching, by contrast, is about the “client as expert.”

Perhaps you even have “The client is the expert” all over your sales pages.

But–what if that were only part of the story?

 

 

After the video

Consider where you might be putting forth an “old paradigm” idea about coaching on your sales pages, giving your clients a diluted version of you and what you could offer. Are *you* fully showing up within your offering?

In the module on impeccability in The Coaching Blueprint I ask coaches to consider moving away from several of the “old paradigms” of coaching–including the idea that coaching is about the future while therapy is about the past, or even that coaching and therapy have zero overlap (a controversial idea, for some!).

 

The Coaching Blueprint helped me gain clarity around my offerings, and weed out some of the things that were not really in service to my clients, dreams, and goals.

My practice is now growing and evolving beyond my wildest dreams, as I share my love of community-centered strategy, big ideas, and living life unconstrained with the world.”

Interview: Fabeku Fatunmise

When I updated The Coaching Blueprint program in 2012, adding about 100 more pages of content and an additional interviews with six-figure life coaches, the response on launch day from long-time users of the program was unanimous:

“It’s amazing that you’re giving us this much additional content without asking us to make another purchase.”

I do that because The Coaching Blueprint program is not the product of someone who decided that a great way to make a buck was to sell people on how to make a buck, without actually learning how to do that.

This program was truly built from the ground up. There’s not a single thing in there that I haven’t tested. I don’t offer any suggestions that I haven’t already parsed through and learned, myself–often, the hard way, and sometimes miraculously through smarts and hard work and good intuitive hits all coming together at once.

I want you to succeed at this.

So, then: Meet Fabeku.

 

What’s above is just a snippet of our longer interview, which covers:

  • how “just be yourself” can be tricky business advice
  • how your website’s comments might lead you to mis-judge impact
  • the marketing mistakes that (unfortunately) out-of-integrity consultants are telling people to make
  • the importance of discerning when someone is truly ready for your work
  • the top 3 things that Fabeku does that keep his business growing so beautifully
