Welcome to Coaciety Blog
Whether you’re a coach who actually guides people out of what seems like a perpetually low place or an individual utilizing the services and guidance of a coach because you want support lifting your energy, we could all use a refresher on getting out of that proverbial funk.
“Coaching,” for those unfamiliar with the term outside of sports, can be a challenge to sell. That’s because people don’t really buy the idea of coaching, as they might therapy — because, after all, coaches don’t necessarily unearth childhood issues and they certainly don’t promise to resolve trauma or help people recover from mental illness. Coaches do not diagnose and do not provide advice.
Some coaches leave executive or higher-level positions that brought with them impressive contact lists and leads; other new coaches, who are possibly recent graduates of coaching schools or who may never have created a funnel before, may be willing to entertain the idea of starting with onboarding friends and family members as their first clients.
You know what you want. You know how badly you want it. You can almost taste it – that’s how close you feel to your goal. You know in your gut it’s meant to be yours. Your heart has been telling you that this thing you want belongs to you, and it’s there for the taking.
Naturally, the well-being and safety of your clients is first and foremost in your mind when you think about working during this ongoing pandemic crisis. So this is nothing new or transformative.
While you’re building your business, you’re probably buried in the minutiae and administrative details: figuring out how to use spreadsheets, considering your pricing structure, what to add to your website, how to buy Facebook ads.
