After you watch the video, leave me a comment on any important questions (details?) you would have about a brand-new intensive course that is designed to teach you how to START your coaching business from scratch — in 30 Days. Then, if you’re still serious about learning how to start as a coach FAST…

(but only if you’re serious).

I’m always being asked about how to get more coaching clients, so I thought I would create a video about how to actually get coaching clients…

In this segment, you’ll learn the COACHING QUICKSTARTTM SYSTEM.

This is a system I developed to help my coaches go from no clients to a full practice.

It has several aspects to it, but these are the key points that I cover in this video:

1. Getting a coach to mentor you through your success

2. Using massive action to build your coaching practice

3. How to begin to build a coaching practice part time

4. QUICKSTARTTM Communication Techniques

5. How to set Free Coaching Sessions to market your coaching practice

6. How to build your coaching practice faster using JOINT VENTURES

7. Creating your coaching services

8. How to grow your coaching practice using QUICKSTARTTM LEVERS

Jeff

P.S. I hope you get a lot of ideas on how you can market, sell, and joint venture your way to a profitable coaching practice. Take action, and DON’T FORGET:

      This video is very informative, it has loads of information on how to get you started in the coaching business and confidence in yourself as a newbie.

  2. Gary says:

    Very well done, very thorough and a practical way to start building a clientele and making a difference in the lives of people that you are already comfortable with.

    Thank you

    I’m putting the finishing touches on the program right now. Stay tuned and I’ll email you details as they come.

    • Kevin says:

      Are you willing to get paid as we get more clients? (I’m a new startup with little cash)

      • I am have challenges getting people to my website. I have business cards that I pass out but only a few responses. My blog has some interesting live topics. Its worthless with out a clientele. I need help!

    • Kokoe says:

      HEY,
      I have an associates degree in Mental Heath Counseling, B.A. in psychology and sociology and I am currently getting my MSW. I just ventured to start my own business after doing pro-bono work mentoring Youth/young Adults . I have clients already so I love love love love your point of view, in order to help me grow. Question, do you think I need to get a certification from ICF, as well, in order to get more clients while I wait t finish MSW?

      • Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

        It helps for several reasons:

        1. It’ll force you to learn and demonstrate the important competencies of coaching.
        2. It provides credibility and an additional calling card.

        That said, you don’t have to have it in order to continue to grow your business.

        J

  4. I am interested too. Email me details and costs when you can.
    Thanks,

  5. Bob Johnston says:

    I enjoyed watching your video as well as your honesty about the work entailed in building a coaching practice. I am just exploring this as a career. Your video is probably applicable to many starting a new business. A friend has also been plugging attending a speaker’s bureau meeting to surround myself with people looking to market themselves and their ideas.

    One thing I still don’t understand is this. What is coaching all about including variance with different customers. Do you have a video or could you recommend one that can enlighten me?

  6. John says:

    Jeff, Thank you very much. I had a good connection with you from start.
    As I continue to watch your video, I felt your energy, honesty in your voice how you delivered your message. I think you are very credible and delivered your contents with confidence,knowledge and experience.

    I don’t know if it had to do with my computer or you but sometimes your message was cutting in and out that I missed part of a sentence here and there. I have taken some notes which I think will be of great help to me.

    What is the cost of your course?

    Thank you once again.

  7. Alina Munkawa says:

    This video is a very powerful guide Jeff. The content demonstrates a lot of honesty which make me have no doubt you are the best coach every newbie will ever have. When I came across the video, I was already halfway with my coaching training but there was one component I was still missing, Joint Venture. I’m glad i downloaded this video. It is a powerful tool. I can’t wait to see the next video: Multiple Stream of Coaching Income. Thank you very much.

  8. Well, just FYI, accessing this on IE doesn’t work – your video doesn’t show up. Probably would if I jump over to Firefox but I don’t want to register a second time – too bad.

  9. Kelley Perry says:

    No video came up.

  10. Linda Terrell says:

    A great introduction to starting a coaching business! I look forward to reviewing the next one. Does your company offer a complete course on starting a coaching business? Please advise.

    Thank you.

  11. Jason Bradley says:

    Great video!!
    It addressed one of the big things I’m struggling with. Creditability, I know for sure this is what I want to do in life. But I feel I need a course or a type of certification to say “hey I have this so I know what I’m doing.” Plus I’m young and a bit blue collar. I listen to personal financial advise on a big named radio show everyday. So I have the knowledge to spreed. I just don’t have a system down yet.

    Thanks for the video. very inspirational and informative.

  12. Thanks so much. Your course looks very promising. I have found through all my years in network marketing the power of being coached. You need someone who is knowledgeable and who can keep you accountable.

  13. LWhitt says:

    I enjoyed the video. You gave a lot of great info. Did you start your coaching business while working full-time time? If so, how many hours were you able to put in to get it off the ground so that it became your full-time business?

    Also, do you have any advice on handling potential conflicts of interest between my current (non-profit) job whose target market is similar to the one I want to serve as a financial/life coach.

    FYI, I have not yet taking a coaching course, but I’m conducting research now. Any advice on what to look for in a coaching program? What to avoid?

    Thanks, much.

  14. Garrett Foster says:

    I would be interested in learning more about the program, including cost. Thanks.

  15. Grady Simpson says:

    This web video went over and above my expectations. It really answered a lot of my questions about how I need to start a Life coaching business

    Thanks

  16. Flo Iz says:

    Really helpful! I actually planing a new career as coach!
    Thank you! I will come back to you son!

  17. S, Clark says:

    The information and delivery of content was clear and very helpful. The step by step guide helps to alleviate some of the anxiety that comes along with the process of building a practice.

  18. e says:

    thanks for the talk . this is something i didnt know how to start . but how can i download this so that i can listen to it at the car

  19. Erak says:

    I like the reality check you do right at the start in terms of what it’s going to take to succeed, I’m creating a seminar for my weight loss coaching program to achieve a similiar result.

    Thought the tips on quick start using the telephone, urgency to attend sessions and leveraging the way in which you attract clients was excellent. I will be checking out your main site.

    Thanks again for some insightful and inspirational ideas.

    I Enjoyed it thanks it help me

  21. BRENT BURLESON says:

    Ive just started a training course on being a christian lifecoach online. Ive recently graduated from intensive outpatient therapy program that changed my life in the form of obtaining rational thinking from cognitive behavior therapy. I see many correlations between therapy and spirituality and want to use the two to help others and MAYBE earn a p living doing this later. I think that alot of what you offer could be of great help to me establishing my vision.

  22. sherri says:

    what is the cost of the course?

  23. Linda says:

    I wish I would have found you in 2009 when I started. With this information my 2012 would be totally different. However, it never to late to reinvent my practice so I have taken notes, saw where I made a few mistakes and see how this information will absolutely set me on the right path to reaching my goals. I was looking for information on how to write a business plan for my coaching business and what I got was soooo much more. thanks for this.

  24. Terry Thomas says:

    I loved your video and learned a lot! I am looking forward to the next one! Thank you for helping others! It means so much. Have a wonderful day.

  25. Great infomation on starting a coaching career. I am excited about incorporating this into my current errands and oraganizing business, reaching out to my current base to offer additional services.

  26. Renee says:

    Fantastic! Video was great and very inspiring. You didn’t sugar-coat the hard work and dedication and focus needed to set up the business and I found that refreshing. I felt like I was listening to a friend. I’m excited about taking your advice and getting started.

  27. kk says:

    Hi Jeff, As you know I have been a part of the Quick Start Coaching and I have to say that it is the absolute best. Being a part of Master Coaching University is a dream come true. Putting what I learned into practice not only helps me be a great master coach but clients almost do fall out of the sky. After starting Quick Start Coaching my business sored. Thank you for this awesome program.

  31. That was a very well thought out and informative video. Thank you!

  32. Christine says:

    Many thanks for that useful video. It was enlightening. Do you have details for the cost of the Program yet?

  33. Jeff,
    Thank you for the content in this video. It was very well done and informative. I am targeting coach weight loss coaches, beginning with those who use hypnosis for weight loss as that is where I come from. Is there a weight-loss coaches association that you know of? What is the best coaches Association?

  34. Hilda says:

    Thank you for your honest and very informative video.

  35. tina says:

    Awesome info. I am new at the coaching business, I am a national top seller in a large company… Training is just aweful, I learnt myself.. I see a big gap teaching the right training i’ve offered to help,,the company stated it would cost them more taking me away from selling,,, so they paid millions for an outside coaching company to come in….I’ve wanted to get in to this field for sometime coming from england,,, i have a lot to offer, coming across your video was very enlightening,, has made me speed ahead… sky is the limit,,, thankyou,, cant wait for the next session…

  36. jason says:

  39. Tiffany says:

    This was one of the most informative videos I have ever seen. All of the information was so pratical, specific, and useful. It has given me more confidence about launching my own coaching business. I’m so grateful that this knowledge was shared. I am committed to completing the assignments given. I have such a better awareness of what it takes to be successful as well as pitfalls to avoid which will lead to disaster. Thank you soooo much!!!!!

  40. Great information, Jeff. You told it like it was, you gave a lot of information, and have given me a lot to think about, as well as a direction to go. I can see that my first step will be to think about, and create my strategy session.

    Thank you.

    Yes, we’re putting together a Platinum Package that will address everything from your coaching techniques and skills to your coaching business plan and client getting strategies.

  45. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    LWhitt :

    I enjoyed the video. You gave a lot of great info. Did you start your coaching business while working full-time time? If so, how many hours were you able to put in to get it off the ground so that it became your full-time business?

    Yes, I started right away full time, but I went to work for a large coaching company. Most new coaches start part time and then ramp up as their client load increases.

    I advise at least 10 hours per week to ensure that you’ll make measurable progress towards eventually being able to run the business full time.

    LWhitt :

    Also, do you have any advice on handling potential conflicts of interest between my current (non-profit) job whose target market is similar to the one I want to serve as a financial/life coach.

    Make sure you’re a benefit to your current job. I’d possibly bring it up to them and discuss to see if there’s a way you can line up common interests and eliminate any potential conflicts. If the politics make that impossible, then I’d lay low and plan your exit. ’tis a free country!

    LWhitt :

    FYI, I have not yet taking a coaching course, but I’m conducting research now. Any advice on what to look for in a coaching program? What to avoid?

    Thanks, much.

    I cover this in many videos. My best (short form) advice is to join a course that includes lots of mentoring and accountability. You can learn great ‘information’ anywhere, but only get real HELP from a few committed people and organizations. Our Quickstart Program (Platinum Package) will fit this bill.

I am targeting coach weight loss coaches, beginning with those who use hypnosis for weight loss as that is where I come from. Is there a weight-loss coaches association that you know of? What is the best coaches Association?

    There aren’t any well-established weight loss coaching associations yet.

    Perhaps YOU should create it?

    weightlosscoachingassociation.com is available (go get it registered HERE right now… before I grab it!)

    There are many associations of coaches. the widest known is ICF.

  49. Ann says:

    Thank you for giving this information out for free. I found your video very helpful and informative. It contained information I needed but did not have and I am so looking forward to watching your other videos too.

  50. Paulus Tri Wahyudi says:

    thank you for giving this information. it is very helpful.

  51. Lynda Cannova says:

    Great stuff for someone who is spanking brand new, like me! Wold like to learn more.

  52. David McAlee says:

    Jeff – enjoyed your video as it provided lots to think about. Your “strategy sessions” I loved. What a fantastic way to walk someone through possibly the significance of written goals and plans to achieve as a way of living life to its fullest. I will be looking forward to your QuickStart coaching information. Have a blessed week, Jeff.

  53. Ambre says:

    Great stuff. Verry usefull. Would like to know more!

  54. Jean Daniel says:

    hell Jeff….from Lagos Nigeria. Am a soft skills trainer and practiced coaching with it. But recently I decided to divert into coaching proper and just been certified. But was searching for what name to use to catch people’s attention when I opened your website. I must say your delivery was honest direct and the willingness to share is quite refreshing. I got a lot of tips that was not covered. I will definitely keep in touch…who knows you might need me for a JOINT VENTURE COACHING…telephone coaching is no hinderance? yes? well am trying what you just taught! lol. Thank you for all.

  55. Deb says:

    Lots of good information. Interested in multiple streams of income too. How much does your training cost? What if you don’t have a big e-mail/contact list?

  56. Helenhall says:

    No video…sounds like it could have been informative. Using ipad…so…thx anyway

  57. Marianna says:

    Thank you for the indepth information that I just listened to. Not only was it informative but it taught me alot about coaching. I am looking forward to doing the homework assignments and ultimately becoming a coach. Again thank you.

  58. iris kalinowski says:

    Good Morning I really like your style of teaching. I am a people person and really like working out at least 5 days a week. A friend and I are trying to get the coaching off the ground and you really gave me some good pointers on starting the business.Thanks for your help.

    Iris

  59. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Yeah, this one is pure flash video, so you’ll need to view it on an actual computer. Most of our videos work on an IPAD using the skyfire browser (go here to get it: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skyfire-web-browser-for-ipad/id409153623?mt=8 )

  60. sara says:

    Great video and very helpful info..especially the 5 hours of phone calls..thanks.

  61. steve says:

    Thanks for the info Jeffrey. Do you have any openings to be my coach? You have some real concise words here.

    Steve

  62. Kenyatte says:

    I found the video to be very helpful. It is full of practical tools that I can “see” myself applying to my coaching business! I am very excited to get started. Thank you!

  63. Kenyatte says:

    Question: Do you have a video on how-to “Niche”? I have over 1500 client contact hours marked in 3 specialty areas (or so I thought, lol), but when I asked my test group what they thought of my service offerings (via linked in) most said it was too broad/non-specific. Having hard time utilizing that critic to help me better state/name my specialty and thus proper clientele and joint ventures.

  64. Cheri says:

    This information was very helpful. It gave me ideas that I need to focus on.

  65. A. Marie says:

    Thank you thank you. You web video was just what I needed to see and hear. I purchased a website and is in the process of developing it and I just co-authored a book. I like quick start my coaching business and you just empowered me to do so.

  66. Mira says:

    Great video!

  67. Hannes says:

    Thanks. It is great stuff for beginners becuase it takes one step by step.

  68. Nona says:

    Thank you. Well done and presented effectively. Motivated to start now rather than suffer from analysis paralysis as is my history. Keep it up, you will hear from me again.

  69. natalie says:

    Hiya really loved the video and its made me want to go in this direction to be a life coach even more thank you and could you please email me details and costs thanks again 🙂

  70. yadira says:

    I found it very useful. I would have found it very useful if you had a side note of an example of tips for your first strategy sessions.
    Thank you!

  71. Alisha says:

    Awesome!

  72. Craig says:

    Finally, a vehicle in which I can use my true gift…the uncanny ability to comprehensively “read” people at a glance, and use whatever insight I glean to motivate and help them. I have previously used this ability to receive a full scholarship to college and then to graduate school by assessing a person’s needs, both academically and emotionally to tutor them in whatever skill they required. I have used this ability to climb the corporate ladder as well. Previously, I have never taken a penny for my advice or time ( tutoring), except for the scholarships. Now, I would welcome the opportunity to combine my love for helping people and be financially remunerated for it – my income requirements have grown substantially since grad school..family, home, etc. Looking forward with great enthusiasm to starting my own coaching empire. Thanks, Craig.

  73. veronica says:

    Thank you so much for the most informative, free! course that I have found on the internet. Incredibly valuable.

  74. KB says:

    I would like to receive more information. This video is fantastic!

    Interesting strategy. I am also wondering how much the program is?

  76. Sherril Gallien says:

  77. trina says:

    Great video…..i am ready and excited to start my new business.

  78. Very, very good. I got steps I can take starting tomorrow to grow my business. Many principles and cross over into others area besides coaching.
    thank you.

  79. annmarie says:

    this was so awesome. I took lots of notes and became completely inspired to do the homework. But not till I get my business cards lol <3

  80. Gaurima says:

    hey the video is awsome , very very very informative

  81. Theresa James says:

    Nice video … you pulled it off without really being in front of the camera … nice speaking voice ..it was engaging, great tone and pace. How long did it take you in practice? Did you have a marketing or speech coach to help you with this. Looking forward to next session

  82. CD says:

    Great stuff. Very informative and just the type of information that I was looking for concerning the business side of running a coaching practice. Thanks for this.

  83. Michael Owens says:

    found your video informative. I have a friend that is an excellent marketing person and speaker. Would/could you reccommend having someone else sell you for a cut of the bussiness?

  84. Violet says:

    I didn’t actually watch the video. I listened to it while doing some housework. But, the information is very helpful. I like that you are upfront with the fact that it takes work to build the business. You give very good information and it is very understandable. I am in the beginning stages of becoming a coach. FYI–I was on youtube watching something completely different and ran across your video. Thought you might like to know how I heard about it. Thanks.

  85. THOBILE(SOUTH AFRICA) says:

  88. phillip says:

    I am interested in learning how to become a life coach. Finance is limited.But i would like the best training. I have been in some way or other a life coach to all around me, without knowing it. People, complete strangers tell me there problems openly all the time. I have a gift and would like to turn this into a successful business. Any guidance in where to find a good course that is affordable would be appreciated.

    Yours faithfully,

    Phillip Timveos.

  89. Lorna Baxter says:

    Very well done and thorough video. I have just started to seriously looking at life coaching to compliment my HR training and stumbled on this video. It was really great stuff and has given me nudge I need to move forward. Thank you for sharing!

  90. Debbi says:

    Thanks Jeff! I completed my Life Coach training, but unfortunately, there was not much emphasis on actually creating a business out of the skills learned. Thanks for motivating me to take the next steps to turn my training into a business.

  91. rogers says:

    video didn’t work!

  92. quintessa davis says:

    I really need program costs please and thx…. and also if there is some kind of certification…..

  93. Jeff R. says:

    It was very detailed.I liked it a lot.

  94. Andrea E. N. says:

    Stumbled across the link from a google search. You did an excellent job at creating a great foundation for a practice.

  95. Roxee says:

    Fabulous! I discovered your video at the right time. I have been a ‘natural coach’ most of my life. Friends, family and strangers always open up to me and also ask for advice so being a coach is the perfect fit for me. I still haven’t found my ‘niche’ yet. People talk to me about a variety of problems they might have, personal and business, so I’m trying to discover the more suited one for me to work with. Your information is clear and precise and straight to the point. Very refreshing! Thank you so much for the instruction and advice. I will stay tuned.

  96. collee m. issa says:

    Jeff….Love the video…..first question…how do I find a superb coach? One that will mesh with my vision? If I pay up to 1000.00 a month…how many times should I expect to meet with my coachper week and for how long each meeting? Second…I mentor people now for “free” Part of me feels guilty using the gifts i’ve been given to make money off it. Any thoughts regarding this?

    Colleen

  97. Connie says:

    1 Liked your delivery & non-nonsense details about what it takes to build a coaching practice as a business. It seems like an approach more for business coaching and I am interested in “life coaching”. Not sure the same approach will result in significant lead generation.
    2 How much does your program cost?

  98. sori says:

    Deb :

    Lots of good information. Interested in multiple streams of income too. How much does your training cost?

    I’ll send all the course information to you soon.

    Deb :

    What if you don’t have a big e-mail/contact list?

    I started my coaching business with only 50 contacts. I did not have most of their emails. The quality of your contacts is just as important as the quantity, so your contact list doesn’t need to be big in order to support a thriving coaching practice.

    If you have no contact list whatsoever, then you’d need to build one. This could be done by:
    .

    1. 1. networking
    2. 2. speaking in front of groups and associations
    3. 3. doing joint ventures with other businesses who already have a contact list (but don’t do coaching for them currently)
    4. 4. social media online (facebook, twitter, linkedin, etc.)
    5. 5. setting up your own online marketing

    These methods help you grow your coaching practice into a true business that has no limits to what it can earn for you (not to mention, no limit to the difference you can make for the world).

  105. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Kenyatte :

    Question: Do you have a video on how-to “Niche”? I have over 1500 client contact hours marked in 3 specialty areas (or so I thought, lol), but when I asked my test group what they thought of my service offerings (via linked in) most said it was too broad/non-specific. Having hard time utilizing that critic to help me better state/name my specialty and thus proper clientele and joint ventures.

    Any market (or niche) consists of three things:

    1. Group of people that identify together (i.e. christians, doctors, dog lovers, pool players, cancer patients, etc.)
    2. Problem (a problem that this group has)
    3. Solution (a solution that this group wants to use to solve the problem in #2)

    Start with this and let’s see if your niches fulfill this requirement. Each of these areas need to be specific.

    Theresa James :

    Nice video … you pulled it off without really being in front of the camera … nice speaking voice ..it was engaging, great tone and pace. How long did it take you in practice? Did you have a marketing or speech coach to help you with this. Looking forward to next session

    A long time ago, I went to Toastmasters, which helped me quite a bit.

    After that, nothing. However, when you do as much reading, listening, watching, and coaching as I do, giving a presentation is pretty natural. Coaches can be amazing speakers if they take the time to practice and learn the basics.

    Jeff

  108. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Michael Owens :

    found your video informative. I have a friend that is an excellent marketing person and speaker. Would/could you reccommend having someone else sell you for a cut of the bussiness?

    YES, but there’s a way to do it that works, and lots of ways to do it that doesn’t work.

    If your contact has access to good audiences, then they could generate the leads for you to convert into clients. Seldom does a speaker sell coaching during the presentation itself.

    Jeff

  109. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    collee m. issa :

    Jeff….Love the video…..first question…how do I find a superb coach? One that will mesh with my vision?

    Lot’s of great questions here. Let’s start with this one:

    There are lots of coaches to choose from, and most of them are a Google search away. Most of them are also willing to give you a complimentary session before you pay for their coaching, so you’ll have a good chance with each of them to evaluate the fit.

    collee m. issa :

    If I pay up to 1000.00 a month…how many times should I expect to meet with my coachper week and for how long each meeting?

    The amount of time doesn’t matter as much as the results they help you to get. If you spend 20 minutes with your coach, but they help you make an extra $1000, then that’s at least worth $1000. If you spend 5 hours with a coach and they don’t add any real value during those 5 hours, then who cares about the longer amount of time?

    collee m. issa :

    Second…I mentor people now for “free” Part of me feels guilty using the gifts i’ve been given to make money off it. Any thoughts regarding this?

    Colleen

    That has more to do with deep seated beliefs than anything else. Changing these beliefs is something we do in the Quickstart Coaching Code program, because it’s so essential to your success in your coaching business.

    Until we’re working on this together, I’d say to get started no matter how you feel about it. As long as you know in your heart that charging a client is the right thing to do (logically), then do it, and deal with the feelings as you grow. Inauthentic feelings have a tendency to change as you act against them. This isn’t the perfect solution, but it’s the only one that will fit in the space of a comment…

  110. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Connie :

    1 Liked your delivery & non-nonsense details about what it takes to build a coaching practice as a business. It seems like an approach more for business coaching and I am interested in “life coaching”. Not sure the same approach will result in significant lead generation.
    2 How much does your program cost?

    In my experience working with over 3,000 life coaching clients, it works just the same way.

    However, coaching is a new profession, so results do vary a bit. You also need to personalize this approach to your own niche and business.

    I’ll send program information shortly.

    Jeff, it has been a pleasure listening to your video. I have been an entrepreneur for 15 years and have witnessed what you spoke about. For years I have been interested in coaching and YOU have sold me. I can’t wait to get started. My experience has been that if you enjoy what you do, then you will look forward to doing it each day. Your excitement is so contagious! Please keep me updated as I look forward to the your future videos and correspondence. Thanks Jeff.

I will anxiously wait to hear back from you.

    Watched quick start video in its entirety and thought it was both helpful and interesting. I took a lot of notes and will be starting my 5hrs of calls after I finish this entry. I am just getting started with the coaching as a “professional”, but have been coaching women to wellness for a few years now. I think that the only part that I may have a challenge with would be coming up with a way to measure results from the sessions. Right now the women tell me that they are notice a change in how they view diferent aspects of life in general, but again how do I measure that?

    Your clients don’t want certifications from you. They want results. If you show them how you’ll help them get results, then they’ll be more than happy to hand you money in exchange for the results they desire.

    A certification is a poor substitute for proof that you’ll get results for a client, in fact, after a free session, if your prospective customer asks you if you’re certified, then chances are you’ve failed to convince your prospect that you can help them (they’re searching for lesser reasons why they might still consider working with you).

    That said, I’m planning on offering two certifications with the Quickstart Coaching Code:

    You’ll receive the first certification after you’ve completed the live 30 day bootcamp.

    You’ll receive the second certification after you’ve completed the onsite certification training.

    It’s a good start. You need to dig a bit with these clients. Ask them questions that reveal:

    What do they DO differently as a results of how they view life?
    How do they communicate with others differently?
    What external results are coming from that internal change?
    What’s now possible for them now that wasn’t possible before (future results)?
    What pain has been eliminated?
    What new pleasure is now available?
    Do they react to situations differently now?

    If this ‘new view of life’ doesn’t result in any of the above, then it’s likely best to work with these clients until some tangible changes occur for them (or at least, become possible).

  129. Hey Jeff… look forward to your launch.

    I’m definitely interested in this course and look forward to it’s completion.

    I’m attempting to build a internet marketing firm that does services/coaching in my local market.

    Helping business owner’s run their marketing better.
    was wondering if your course would still be mostly applicable to me since my niche isn’t traditional life coaching but instead business coaching.

    100% of the Quickstart Coaching Code (the business skills side of the course) will directly apply to your business.

    80% – 90% of the High Caliber Coaching Code (the coaching skills side of the course) will directly apply to your business (there’s a major section that covers coaching specifically in intimate relationships, which doesn’t directly apply to business coaching generally).

    There are sections on coaching executives, small business owners, home business owners, family owned businesses, plus all the coaching technique sections are going to apply to coaching businesses (coaching businesses is where I mastered all these techniques!)

    Another element you’ll find in the High Caliber Coaching Code… There are three ‘games’ of business:

    1. Inner Game
    2. Outer Game
    3. Action

    We cover how to coach your business coaching clients in all three of these areas for maximum success.

    Jeff

    P.S. The beginnings of your site look good.

    it in plain and simple english keep the videos rolling in great work!

    Hi Jeff, super fantastic. This is valuable information. I’ve looked and looked on the internet and everyone wants to tell you all about the classes they offer and none of them are willing to give you a peek into any of the material they use. You give a great peek into how you operate. I’d say, it’s way more than a peek. Thank you so much for this free information. I look forward to learning more from you.

  138. Kathleen says:

    Hi Jeff, Thoroughly enjoyed the video. The information was clear and concise. I am currently starting an holistic wellness coaching business. I have a medical background and a natural healh lifestyle. Would this course be beneficial or would a need to specifically take a health coaching course. I’ve looked at several but was not impressed. My colleagues keep on telling me I don’t need to be certified because I know more than what they would teach, I just need to ask the right questions. That’s how I came across this website – I googled “questions health coaches ask”.

    Would apreciate your thoughts on this.

    Carol :

    Thanks for the concise presentation and I’m looking forward to more – any suggestions website and targeting a niche or not?

    Carol,

    I generally don’t advise that you target a niche when you’re first starting out as a coach. Learning to coach, enroll clients, provide life-changing value, etc., is enough for the first 3-6 months of your coaching business without trying to learn how to become a direct marketer, market researcher, and internet (or mail-order) marketing guru.

    There are exceptions to that, but from what I’ve seen with most successful coaches, their niche tends to ‘find them’ through their experience of coaching clients and exploring all the potential sources of business that are available to them without trying to ‘pick a niche’. Niches aren’t something you ‘pick’… they are something you find through research, practice, and talking to lots of clients.

    In the Quickstart program, there are several important niche research tools that you’ll use, but only after having practiced real coaching with potential clients. Then you’ll have that experience and insight that the ‘niche’ question requires in order for the answer to be worth anything to your coaching business.

    Kenneth,

    Coaching fees can range widely, so it really depends on your market niche, service that you provide, etc.

    I’d start out at a fee level that you’re comfortable with, whatever number that happens to be. Over time, you can raise your fees or change them as you and your business evolves.

    I’m suggesting that you need to have a coach yourself if you’re going to do well as a coach.

    You don’t have to have a coach to learn to coach, nor do you need one to run a coaching business, but it’s important and valuable in my experience.

  166. Kelly says:

    I appreciate the clarity and straightforward information in the video. There seems to be no shortage of free “get started coaching now” web videos targeted at new/wannabe coaches but this was EASILY teh most informative providing real information tnat anyone can use right away along with a clear picture of reality eg:expect to do 5 hours of calling for 1 to 2 YEARS, or sample of what to say on a call.

    I am a an actor with over 15 years experience leading acting and improv classes to adults and kids as well as facilitating corporate workshops utilizing improv and acting skills to teach soft skills – team building, communication, creativity ect. I am now interested in developing my current expereinc and skills into a coaching practice. The info in this video was great business advice that I can start to use ASAP.

    Where I am stuck is in how to define/communicate my area of expertise. When I tell people I am coaching I find myself going on and on. I know that I know what I am doing but it sure doesn’t seem that way when I open my mouth and coaching team building by phone doesn’t seem effective.

    How might your course address my issue – defining an area of coaching expertise when the expertise is soft not hard like “sales” or “career transition”

    Would working with a coach help with that?

    Per your advice – Jeff – are you available to speak with?

    Fantastic! I took copious notes. I will review again but I learned a lot. Some of them I am already doing but what you said reinforced what I need to commit to doing for the New Year. Just awesome. I look forward to more.

    coachcicely :

    Enjoyed very much. Very informative. I had actually thought about getting a coach for myself to see what it would be like in my clients shoes. Also to get tips on do’s and dont’s. Where did you say we could go to get info on setting up web videos? or is that included in your package?

    Yes, we have a few programs that cover creating video coaching and products in great detail. Here are some basics:

    Equipment –

    1. Audio capture

    Use a plantronics mic that has a direct USB connection to your computer. No fuss, no muss.

    Most computers also have internal mics, but the quality will suck (yes, including mac mics! — too much background noise)

    If you’re using a video camera to take live shots, there are a variety of mics you could use (including whatever internet mic the camera has), but it does get a bit more complex at that point.

    2. Video capture

    Many computers (and tablets) have embedded cameras that take fantastic video. This is a great option for live video capture.

    A flip video or Kodak zi-8 (or similar model) is a good option for live video capture as well. Just remember that you MUST have decent lighting and audio. Get a 3-point lighting kit and a backdrop from a camera store to assure that things look professional.

    If you want to only take video of your computer screen (or a powerpoint slide presentation), then you don’t need a camera. You need Screen Capture software. FOR PC – Camtasia FOR MAC – Screenflow.

    3. Editing software

    On a PC, live video editing software will likely come with whatever video camera you buy. It won’t be great, but likely will be good enough to make something professional.

    On a mac, use final cut (find a used copy of ‘express’ for $200+ if you’re on a budget) for live video editing.

    If you got your video content through screencapture (see above), then use the software that captured the video to edit it for publishing. I use Screenflow almost exclusively for this purpose and it works great.

    4. Publishing and hosting your video

    I would start by simply uploading video to http://youtube.com, then eventually graduate to using amazon’s S3 hosting to store your video content and use an appropriate video player plugin on your wordpress blog, etc.

    coachcicely :

    I would also like info on pricing. Thanks

    If you sign in HERE, I’ll send you updates and pricing information when it’s available.

  191. Shani Vermeulen says:

    Hi Jeff,
    I thoroughly enjoyed and absorbed your video. There are so many coaching companies offering courses and manuals (quite expensive I might add), and once you are qualified, you have no support from them as to how to use your newly acquired qualification to start a new career!

  192. THANKYOU, high-value and actionable information. Much appreciated!

  193. The Quick Start Coaching Video was an excellent resource to start the coaching business. I am hoping the for services will be reasonable enough that I may be able to begin the process.

    Thanks.

  194. Wow, an Excellent investment of my time! Finally, someone who is giving realistic, articulate, easy to follow guidance for beginning a coaching practice! Thank you… I can’t wait to hear more. 🙂

  195. Maggie says:

    How much does the course cost to get certified? How do I get to do the course immediately?

  198. Jeff:

    I am attempting to look at the video on my computer but I am having no luck! 🙁

    AS I waited I had an opportunity to read the comments that you replied to and I am so intrigued, I really want to watch the video now.

    What can I do to watch it?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks Jeff!

    Wow!
    I am happy to say that I have already done the first 3 bullets to your assignment as well as began my blog, http://www.niecat.com without even knowing! I am so excited! You have given me confirmation that I am on the right track!

  201. Thank for your video. It is clear my mind about coaching. May I ask you somthing? First, I have no specific expertise, interest or passions. So can I become coach? Second: Is it any difference between coaching and self helf motivator?

    Thank you.

  204. otinu says:

    very good counsel. i have actually just started a career coaching business with my NCFE certification in life coaching. its been a year now but its still slow in coming up.

    i really want to know how to get people to pay for career coaching. most people think it should be funded by an NGO so they can get it for free!

  205. lindy says:

    Mr. Sooey, I’d like to quickly go over how I came across this career match for myself.
    Currently, I am a psychology major student trying to attain my bachelor’s, eventually leading into psychiatry. The transfer process to a university was chaotic, and I ended up having to use this spring semester as a break because of problems in the transferring process on my end and the University’s.
    Well, I have a very entrepreneurial spirit, and after googling for a slogan for another “business” venture idea I have in mind, I stumbled upon life coaching as a legit, helping others opportunity. I had never really spent too much thought on it before, of all the times I had heard of it.
    I started googling, and eventually it led to a YT video of yours.
    I just wanted to express my sincerest gratitude for creating this video! I almost thought for a minute that I would have to go through (more) paid education to become a life coach, temporarily diverting my other academic plans.
    Out of all of the other free learning information I’ve attained, this was by far the most simplistic, motivating, and thorough.

    Thank you very much!! 🙂

  206. Cindy says:

    Thank you for your generous gift of information. I’ve already started some of these (Gold mine list, offering free sessions) to family and friends and the results have been great. I see each session I offer as win-win, they get attention, new awarenesses, and an action plan at the very least, and I get practice and the sense of satisfaction of sharing. Soon I will take it to the next level and be charging, enabling me to pay down my credit card for the coach(es) I have already employed.

    Many thanks and I suspect I will utilize your resources as I continue this awesome journey.

    Your info was very helpful. I want to be a coach because I feel like I am constantly doing this type of work for free but I am not charging. I have potentional clients alrealdy and I do know coaches. I want to make sure that when I am ready to proceed fully that I have the financial backing. I am get more and more people asking for infomation on different subjects and i really need to pursue this. I will continue to listen to your videos which give me more insight on getting started. Thank you very much.

    Career coaching is a great business right now, and there are many ways to make money doing it.

    If your customer really needs the coaching, there are two things they’ll want you to show them before they pay you:

    1. PROOF that you’ve helped other people LIKE THEM get the results they want.
    2. An offer that they believe is low risk, and worth 10 times what they’re paying you.

    If you can show them those two things, they’ll pay you (assuming they can afford to).

    I am just researching the possibility of becoming a wellness coach. I am looking for a career change. I have my masters in education and taught music in the public schools. After three kids, I do not want to go back to teaching. I have always enjoyed fitness and nutrition. Do I need to go back to school for a degree in wellness coaching? or do I just need your course? I need some more guidance and information before diving in. Thanks

  218. Doc. R says:

    Good Video!

    My Comments:

    The video was informative but also vague to a degree and I understand why. To this point I really only took exception to the assumption that everyone would have the resources (contact base) to dedicate 5 hrs per week. What is your recommendation for those that do not have an extensive contact list? Personally, I feel that many will exhaust their initial contacts within one or two weeks. You state do this for two years. How would most people achieve this level of direct contact?

    Thanks,

    I think it depends on a few things:

    1. What types of clients you’re going to work with
    2. Your business model (how you plan to make money and attract customers)
    3. The role you want to play with your business and customers

    You CAN coach ANYONE on ANYTHING as long as you’re clear on what your role is for them (as a coach) and what role(s) you cannot play for them.

    For instance, I’ve coached clients with cancer and other severe diseases, given advice and coaching, and helped them turn their diseases around. However, I never claimed to be giving medical advice. I also always advised them to use a doctor for their primary medical care role and for the most accurate answers on their situation.

    In that respect, you don’t need to:

    1. be an expert in the areas in which you’re coaching your clients
    2. be the one ‘telling them what to do’ (that’s their job)

    As a coach, you will more likely:

    1. Hold them accountable for doing what they already know they need to do.
    2. Listen to them and act as a sounding board for ideas and options.
    3. Support them and be an unwavering stand for them and their goals.
    4. Work with them to maintain the mindset, focus, commitment, confidence, etc. (a strong ‘inner game’) to get the results they want.

    So…

    While getting more education might be helpful to you, you may be able to get the information you need for helping your clients through your own personal research rather than official certifications and education.

    While a good coach always considers learning more via whatever channels are the best fit for them, you COULD simply take this course and you’ll have successfully started your business. Just remember that your education as a coach and in your business shouldn’t stop there if you’re going to achieve the most success possible in your coaching business.

    My Comments:
    The video was informative but also vague to a degree and I understand why. To this point I really only took exception to the assumption that everyone would have the resources (contact base) to dedicate 5 hrs per week.

    If you think that your only valuable resources is your address book, then I can’t help you.

    In fact, the people WITH a ‘big contact base’ are the people that know that they have the resources WITHIN THEMSELVES to BUILD any sized contact base they choose.

    Do you have a MOUTH?

    Do you have a grasp of at least one widely used SPOKEN LANGUAGE?

    Are you able to SPEAK?

    Are you able to do one of the following:

    >>transport yourself via car, bus, dogsled, etc., to the nearest human gathering area?
    >>pick up the phone and dial it?
    >>use Facebook, twitter, youtube, linkedin, or any other widely used online networking system?

    Then you have ALL THE RESOURCES YOU NEED.

    So, yes, I’m assuming that you’re a capable communicator and that you’re able bodied, and that you have phone, internet, and transportation.

    Doc. R :

    Thanks,
    Doc

    You need to build contacts. You can do this in many ways. Here are a few:

    >>Meet people by networking locally.
    >>Build new contacts online (including social media).
    >>Get referrals from your current contacts to build your list further.
    >>Speak in front of groups to build contacts.

    I’ve successfully used all these methods to build my list of contacts, and they can work well for anyone.

    Hi Jeff! 🙂
    I asked for guidance (as I usually do when I feel stagnant) and pop comes your Ad!! Some would call it coincidence but I call it the Law of Attraction.
    I am a graduated Neuro Semantics/Meta-NLP Practitioner/Coach (planning of completing my Master Coach by October 2014).
    I have the knowledge, I have the wisdom of my life experiences and I have a God given gift to inspire and empower those who ‘somehow’ seek me; I’ve been doing this my entire life as it comes easily to me and quite natural and have realised that this IS when I am my most passionate!
    To cut a long story short, I left the Corporate stream just under two years ago and after much, much soul searching, holistic training and self-empowerment courses etc. have decided to be a Coach so I can get paid for doing exactly what I absolutely love and am strongly passionate about, “Inspiring & Empowering people” with an emphasis on women.
    The stepping stone I’d been having difficulties stepping over was on, “HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH MY COACHING BUSINESS?!” Now, do you see WHY your Ad dropping out of thin air came as no surprise to me?! I asked for this! hehe
    I have thoroughly enjoyed, in fact I couldn’t put pen and paper down whilst listening to you!! I cannot express in just a few words what this introduction has done for me Jeff; I will use it as a Map to Create my Services and later on my Product in my Coaching Practice in which I specialise in Self-Empowerment and Relationships.
    Thank you so much, as I trust what you have taught me on this video, your voice sound genuine, even your smile, yes, your smiling voice. Your knowledge and experience aligns very well with what I have witnessed both as a student and as a Newby Coach.

    Look forward to hearing more about the JTS Advisers Coaching Training!!

    Amy Wagner :

    YES. It’s best to niche your blogs rather than have one big ‘catch all’ blog for different subjects.

    This is true from an SEO perspective just as much as it is from a marketing perspective.

    It’s good to know what to say on many levels.

    You should have an outline for the overall topics and questions you’ll focus on in different parts of a session. In addition, you also will want to memorize many different stories, scripts, questions, and discussions that will get the results you’re promising your clients.

    You’re right. Just because this method worked for me, doesn’t mean it works for everyone. In fact, in business, NOTHING ‘works for everyone’, and anyone who tells you differently is lying to you or mistaken.

    This approach is the CORE SET OF METHODS, many of which should be the basis of your own personalized strategy.

    I’ve seen many of our students use these methods as a ‘step one’ and then add some of our other more advanced strategies to this one to form create even better results.

    In my experience, these are examples of coaches that this approach DOESN’T work for:

    1. Coaches who don’t take enough action.
    2. Coaches that try this approach one time and then quit.
    3. Coaches who are constantly saying ‘This won’t work. This won’t work. This won’t work.’ to themselves as they use the approach.
    4. Coaches who try to work with the wrong clients using this approach.
    5. Coaches who can’t coach well (or don’t offer any real value to their clients).
    6. Coaches who really aren’t a good fit for coaching as a profession.
    7. Coaches who don’t really care about their clients.
    8. Coaches who try to use strategies along with this approach that they know nothing about (therefore use the wrong approach).
    9. Coaches who use this approach as a substitute for intelligence and wise business development decisions.
    10. Coaches who don’t set a clear, achievable goal for themselves in this process.
    11. Coaches who don’t modify their approach when they notice they aren’t getting their desired result or progress.
    12. Coaches who don’t get at least some minimal help and advice from an experienced coach as they ongoingly pursue this process.

    To your other point ‘there are other ways to success’…

    I’ve found that almost ALL the ways that coaches have gotten their first clients have included a large set of the methods contained in this video. YES, not EVERY COACH uses EVERY strategy, but the core ideas (like free sessions, levers, and communication) are pretty universal.

    I must say that this was very interesting to hear. I think that the session was informative, but the specifics were generalized and could use more elaboration on the points mentioned. I have been coaching people for the last 7 years and people are always telling me that I need to get paid for all my time. The thing I want to know is how do you fine a true coaching program that is reasonable in price but is a company that operates out of integrity.

    Price is relative to what you get and what the results are. I see many programs that are very cheaply priced that deliver NO RESULTS. Is that really a ‘reasonable price’? Not for a program that delivers NOTHING. A reasonable price for NOTHING is NOTHING.

    If a program that costs $10,000 helps you build a $10,000 / month income, then that’s pretty reasonable!

    Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that you can assess someone’s integrity until you’ve made some type of investment with them. However, there are some signs to look for in my opinion:

    1. Do they communicate with you even when you’re not spending money with them?
    2. Do they follow through on their promises?
    3. Do they offer money back guarantees on their entry level programs?
    4. Do they have any kind of ‘real results’ track record with their graduates? Do their graduates seem happy with their experience?

    Answering ‘yes’ to more of these questions indicates a higher level of integrity, but, again, is no guarantee.

    Ramon Brown :

    I would also learn how to market myself if I could and multiple areas and which one of them to start in first.

    If you’re just starting, I wouldn’t recommend that you commit to one area to market yourself yet. Most new coaches need time to practice their craft, learn the general coaching business development process, and explore many options before diving into one niche.

    The best way to decide which area to start in, is to start in MANY areas, take massive action in each area, and see what works for YOU. No one can predict this, we can only estimate and discuss.

    The point? PLANT 1,000 SEEDS AND LET MANY FLOWERS BLOOM. You’ll learn what works for you and you can redouble your investments in those areas (not to mention, you’ll gain experience and coaching income in the process).

    Ramon Brown :

    Lastly, do you guys offer coaching certification? Please let me know how to get the best bing for my buck. I thank you and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

    YES. We do offer certification. I find the best way for our students to get the best ‘bang for their buck’ is to get started and get into action with their coaching practice AS THEY GET CERTIFIED. They start building an income even before they’ve blown all their free cash.

It is very informative and gives a very good basis to start with. I have the internet and a phone, but as I am not yet certified, how much would you say is a fair amount to charge clients after the complimentary sessions? And would you be able to email me with regards to mentoring me please? How can I ensure that I communicate my strengths, qualifications and talents well in order to get business if I don’t have a coaching certification?

I will be sharing the link that led me to this on my twitter feed. Keep up the good work and all the best to you!

    Very inspirational and helpful recording. I am ready to start moving ahead on my dream to be a relationship coach. I have heard much of this before in pieces so was very happy to find it all put together in one session clearly and concisely. Your homework sounds attainable and necessary to move forward successfully. Can I do it? Yes. Very excited and exhillerated. Can I suggest creating a worksheet or workbook people could download to get started. Hey maybe Ill do that. The first few months are always the most difficult, getting yourself motivated and to fully committ and most importantly believing in yourself. It has taken me a number of months to get to this point and now I am ready to go. Many thanks.

  285. Alfie says:

    Thank you! Very good video, approach, marketing strategies, etc..Well done. I just happened to see one of your videos on YouTube.
    I have been helping at NO Charge for individuals, business’, in many areas. The most common being romance & finance but much more than these two. My income has always been from other sources.
    I have been approached by several close friends & family noting that I have been the happiest while helping others…. I have decided to go back to helping but now for a business, focusing all.
    I would welcome all that you have to offer via email or your postings.
    Sincerely,

I watched the video and immediately got on the phone and have spoken to many folks. I was shocked at how many listened and at the response of them wanting to continue with my services. Amazing, wish I had known of that strategy last year. Look out world, here I come (lol).

    Challenge: 1. Create/Establish & solidify Joint Ventures that are a WIN-WIN relationship in $$$/Resources & Results. In past – others make $$$ i get the experience…

    Most joint ventures don’t work (at least at first), so you’ll need to talk to many JV prospects before you find one or two that render a WIN/WIN for you. Use the numbers game to your advantage by talking to LOTS OF PEOPLE. Not only will you be more likely to find a few good relationships, but you’ll learn a lot from the JV prospecting process.

    2. Establish credibility in South America (where I am starting this part of my life journey)without formal education or credentials. I have a BIG DREAM with Massive ACTIONS and already producing results that are taking to the next part of my plans.

    iRMA…

    Credibility is a matter of giving lots of free sessions and proving that you can produce results by demonstrating exactly that to your prospects, partners, and customers. This is partly a game of skill and learning, but again, also a numbers game. The more coaching you give away, the better you’ll get and the more results you’ll produce for people… eventually, this will build tremendous credibility for you.

How important is it that I define a niche and how do you go about convincing people to hire you if you have no previous experience or credibility?

    Thanks,
    Scott
    Atlanta

    I wouldn’t advise you to try to define and choose a niche when you’re first getting started. If you’re doing a lot of good coaching and working hard giving free sessions and making a difference for your clients… your niche will FIND YOU. I see lots of coaches who think they’ll get lots of clients as a result of picking a niche. They pick a niche based upon little to no marketing/coaching knowledge, and little to no experience. then they proceed to waste their time and money on a niche that they’ll NEVER get any clients from at all. They quit soon after… very frustrated and demoralized.

    Having a good niche can be a good thing, but most coaches should wait for a while before they assume that they have enough knowledge and experience with their clients to decide to put resources towards a specific niche.

    Credibility comes from proving that you can produce results for your client. There are lots of ways to do that, but the FIRST way I’d suggest you start is by ACTUALLY GETTING RESULTS FOR PEOPLE. When people get results from you, THERE’S NO QUESTION that you’re credible and that they can trust that you’ll deliver on your value proposition.

    If you have no experience, then all there is for you to do is to GO GET EXPERIENCE. Run free sessions EVERY DAY. In a month or two, you’ll have PLENTY of experience.

    Your credibility will come from lots of things, but start by running lots of sessions, and getting lots of results for your clients.

    Audrey,

    I generally don’t write proposals unless the engagement has 4+ zeros in ROI for me. Although I do work one on one with a few coaches currently, I’d highly recommend doing one of my courses or programs before considering any direct mentoring from me (it’s much more content and learning than I have time to provide in 1 on 1 coaching + it’s a fraction of the investment).

    If you have something specific in mind, feel free to email me and I’ll recommend my advice on how I can help, or the best direction to take.

  321. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    ASM :

    What appointment setting software is the best? Any suggestions?

    I don’t expect any software to set my appointments for me. I have an assistant do it for me, and if you aren’t in a position to hire an assistant yet, then do it yourself.

    That said, there are many good solutions for keeping track of your appointments (once you’ve set them yourself), such as:

    1. Google Calendar (I use this solution, and it works great)
    2. Outlook
    3. iCal (for Mac people)

I have a strong desire to help make a difference in people’s lives. I know that coaching is my true calling, however, my present work pays the bills.

    Although the logistics and ‘battle plan’ may need to be altered, consider that how you currently make a living can’t (or shouldn’t) stop you from this vision / goal becoming your reality, especially if it’s your true calling.

    I’d even go so far as to say “Part of life’s responsibility is to fully commit to and follow your life’s true calling.” That’s just my belief, however, so you can take it or leave it!

    Linda :

    I am interested in learning more about your program, the cost, the time frame and time commitment, and anything else you are willing to provide. Thank you again! Linda

    Hi Jeffrey Thank you very much for an informative insight into the tips and hints what to do. I am going to work through this in order to grow my Coaching Practice. Coaching is a new concept in Namibia, so how do I get clients to buy Coaching sessions?

    Yinka Olatunbosun :

    Thanks for this insightful video.
    You just woke me up from my procrastination.
    I would please like to know how to create a world class website for my business.

    In the beginning, any website will do. I’d suggest that for the first year, you simply get a wordpress blog and write articles in areas of your expertise on the blog. Other than a little bit of branding and information about your coaching, that’ll be plenty.

    Yinka Olatunbosun :
    i would also like to know how to do a business plan.

    No need for a business plan when you first start. Instead, you need a SALES PLAN…

    A sales plan is a plan for creating coaching clients. If you don’t have the capability to get a paying client, then YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS, and there’s no need for a plan for a business that DOESN’T EXIST.

    Your sales plan should clarify:

    1. Your sales goal(s)
    2. The strategies you’ll use to reach those goals.
    3. The types (and amounts) of actions you need to take regularly in order to reach those goals.

    Yinka Olatunbosun :
    Finally how should I charge for my coaching business.
    Thanks

    I know lots of coaches that use Paypal, but I’d advise using a merchant account to charge your clients.

    Just start by charging what you’re comfortable with, and whatever amount your clients are willing to pay.

    You can always raise your fees later.

    Jeff

    • daniek says:

      What type of merchant account? Can you make some good recommendations?

    Hi Jeff! Thank you so much for sharing this AWESOME and helpful information to get us started with a SUCCESSFUL life coaching business, but most of all thank you for NOT CHARGING people for it. You will continue to be financially blessed for not doing so. It was a tremendous, but reasonably bearable amount of information that was easy to understand and follow. You were able to hold my attention throughout! I believe and am already using some of the techniques you presented, such as giving free sessions. I do not have a strategy for getting the people, because most of my life they just fall into my presence with their problems, and because I have not been able to find work in the new city/state I’ve lived in for 2 years I have decided to be a life coach, since I’m doing it for free anyhow. I have a passion and a calling for doing it.
    My question is since I will be contacting people and going to them for these services, once we do the small talk, and I ask if they would like a complimentary session, what do I say to find out what type of session to give them without sounding like they “need help”, or like I’m trying to pry into their business? Because it’s not suppose to be just some random session right? It needs to be something they need. So how would that part of the conversation go?
    Also, at what point do you start charging? How do you figure reasonable rates for specific type of sessions?

    Again thank you so much! I am looking forward to our next group session! 🙂

    • Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

      There’s only one type of session, and it’s the type where the subject of the session is dictated by your client. While there ARE niche situations, where you’ll pitch a very specific session to an audience, most free sessions that you set early in your coaching business are not ‘special’ or ‘tailored’.

      That said, you DO need to find out enough about their life/business so that you can make an offer to help them with that in the form of a free session. Although you can just ‘ask’ if their interested, that won’t gain much rapport or convey much value.

      You need to be able to listen to your prospect in depth and create enough trust and comfort such that they’ll feel good about sharing with you. People LOVE to talk about themselves, their businesses, their problems, and their goals… You’re NOT prying… you’re giving them AN OPPORTUNITY to share with you, and THEY WILL LOVE IT.

      Get past your concerns about prying and care enough about your prospects to ask questions and listen from the heart. The rest will work itself out.

    This video was very informative. The practical suggestions seem real and obtainable. The idea of committing 5 hours per week doesn’t feel overwhelming. In fact, 5 hours will most likely zoom by and a person can see themselves putting in more time once they get comfortable. I appreciate the simplicity of the approach. Thanks!

  335. Dear Jeff,
    I just finished an 8-month course in Fast Track Coaching with Susan Sussman. I consider this course to be one of the most intelligent moves I have ever made. Now comes the hard part – how do I start a coaching business? In watching your video I got so many great answers and actions. Now I have the information to start working as hard and smart as I can to build this dream for myself. You have given me the steps I need to make my start. Someone once said that any start is a good start.

  336. Joyce Logan says:

    I am SO passionate about this – this is for me!
    I am a certified hypnotherapist and hold a Ph.D. in philosophy though I’ve made my living to date in helping business owners market their companies (one of those things I’m a natural at, but didn’t really want to do). However, I feel this is a great addition for me to take my business of helping to higher ground – and not be driving around all day too! I tend to give away too much, and feel depleted by day’s end; so thank you for all this guidance.
    Do you offer package deals such as – web sites and video streaming components?
    Thank you.
    Joyce

    • Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

      Yes, our team could build your website, but we find that coaches are so confused and unclear about their business that they’d waste their money investing in a website before they get started and start paid coaching practice.

      Once a coach is started, if MAY makes sense at that point to talk about initiating online market research and gathering the build team to execute an internet client machine.

  337. Gisele says:

    Hi Jeff — I found your free course on Udemy. Brilliant idea! One I intend on emulating. I found your video session above very practical, down-to-earth, and implementable.

    I look forward to learning more.

    And due to many time pressures I manage, even though I’ve done much work over the past 6 months to shift to a time-block time management approach (which works and is super efficient), I’m also on the lookout for ideas and blueprints on how to build self-paced coaching programs — not because I don’t want to invest my time with people, but because I want to optimize time and results.

  338. Great video! Very useful. Thanks so much!

  339. Rob Galvin says:

    Hi Jeff,
    Along with everyone else it seems, I found this video very helpful in terms of spelling out the reality of what is needed to become a successful coach. I have a couple of comments and questions.

    A number of people are saying the video didn’t work. I was actually one of them. I’d put the video on to play and was making a cup of tea – yes, I know very British – I was listening to the voiceover and kept glancing at the screen, which never seemed to change. My immediate thought was that there was a technical error, and then I realised it was a video of a screen, not the all action blockbuster I’d expected. So my first comment is, maybe you should tell people what to expect. Others may have given up watching when the screen didn’t alter, and that would be a pity because I personally found the slides very helpful.

    A question that came to mind as I was listening was the state of the market and the changes that the vast influx of new coaches will bring about. I am aware that coaching in the UK is relatively new, having been around for about 15 years, and is now growing rapidly. In the USA, the market is probably more stable and I’d be interested to know how things progressed across the water as numbers grew and niches expanded. I’ve also noticed from watching a large number of YouTube videos, how ‘over the top’ so many of the American coaches are, or alternatively how many ‘new age’ coaches there are. Clearly the styles are a response to the market they are targeting. Given the understated British reserve (until they’ve had something to drink :-)), I’m not convinced these approaches are always appropriate. I remember phoning a car hire company in the California and hanging up after being bombarded with promises that my car hire experience was going to be so great, and how I would definitely hire from this company again and again. So, have you found a difference in clients in terms of nationality and how they respond to coaching styles?
    Cheers,
    Rob

    • Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

      You’ll need to navigate your culture and country as all the other coaches deal with their locations (unless you’re working online and then your geography isn’t going to limit you… only your specific language).

      Although I can’t give you a comprehensive market analysis within the boundaries of a reply such as this, I can tell you that coaches build their businesses and get clients in a variety of ways (three primary ways), and they find what works and stick with it. The three big ways I’ve seen coaches successfully build their client base are:

      1. Coaching their network
      2. Speaking & workshops (incl. webinars, conferences, etc.)
      3. Internet

    I truly enjoyed your video. It was concise and informative. I learned in that half hour a blueprint on getting started. Thank you!

  341. Kate says:

    I did not get an email from you! I just found out about udemy this week and yours was the first thing I checked. I absolutely loved your Global Change presentation. I have perused and studied many sources regarding personal coaching and keep thinking I need to get started, but I have always felt like coaching should get me straight first. Now I am ready to get certified and get started! Most of the information is the same, but it is always the presentation and you are so real and down to earth and I am hooked!
    Thanks for sharing your wisdom!

  342. Eman Othman says:

    Hi jef,
    I really need to thank you for your time & effort to transfer your experience & knowledge to people all over the world, I really appreciate that.
    but I was wondering, shouldn’t there be a minimum knowledge and learning so that i can start this coaching business, I really do not feel comfortable starting business with my present status, i feel that I lack a lot of information, but the time I feel confident and ready I’ll no doubt follow your steps, they are really precious.
    Good Luck & Best Regards
    Eman

    • Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

      Coaching isn’t about telling and teaching as much as it is about asking and listening.

      Knowledge CAN add value to a coaching relationship, no doubt. But, don’t let your lack of knowledge keep you from serving your clients.

      Most of the clients I worked with in the first 1/2 of my career knew TONS more than I did (I started at only 26). I brought COACHING SKILLS and ENERGY and CARING to the table, which was way more valuable than knowledge alone. In fact most of your clients have the knowledge they need to achieve the breakthroughs they need and desire, they just need YOUR SUPPORT as their coach to:

      >>take action
      >>make the hard decision
      >>be confident and motivated in the process
      >>communicate powerfully with themselves and others

      …etc.

      Start coaching and helping. You can learn the rest as you go.

    Excellent information and very useful. I am just starting to train as a coach and this was by far one of the most informative videos I have watched. I am going to keep coming back….and, once I completed some of the assignments, may show back up for more training! Thank You!

  346. Karen says:

I love the way you’ve presented the info in a practical and realistic manner.
    Thanks once again.

  353. Grace says:

    Thank you Jeff.That was a great job with the video. It paved the way for me to continue in the career of Life Coaching, this time with the goal of being payed for the work I do. I have been a Life coach for 15 years but had no niche and not receiving a salary. I think this time around I will start implementing your strategy.
    Thanks and remain blessed.

  355. Carol says:

    Thanks for a big shot of inspiration! I appreciate the structure you’ve laid out and it feels more achievable. I’m still facing an internal challenge about how much to charge. I started my coaching practice and doing it part time and want to make it my livelihood. Right now I charge $85/hr and my husband says I don’t get clients because I don’t charge enough. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!!

    PS I’m completely overhauling my website….my short term goal!

  356. Shae Travis says:

    Good afternoon,

    I am excited to find out you have an ICF approved program. I am currently finishing up your online course with Udemy. I’m interested in your ICF ACSTH approved 64 hour certification program. Which one of your courses qualifies for certification? When is your next start date? What is the price? How do I sign up?

    Do you have mentored coaching for graduates of your program to receive ACTP certification?

  357. Tangee says:

    Please send me the details?

  358. Jerond Moore says:

  369. Rodger Doust says:

    I have been researching life coaching for a few years and there are some very good sites out there. I would say this ranks up there with the top sites. It answers questions that many sites tend to avoid and you put things in achievable size steps.

  370. Schilo Franklin-El says:

    Hi, Jeff! Very interested to know how much the course cost. Thank you

  371. LJ says:

    Thank you for the website and information. Lots of goodies here, and can’t wait to watch your other video.

  372. Marie Nubia-Feliciano says:

    Incredibly helpful. I appreciate how clear you communicate. I don’t want to coach full time, but part time (5-10 clients per week MAX), so there are some things that I will not do in order to not create an avalanche I cannot control. Thanks again.
