    #1)
    a. What is your biggest FEAR, FRUSTRATION or PROBLEM when it comes to starting your coaching business?

    I’ve been coaching formally now for about 2.5 years, but so far my sessions have only been exclusively in-person. My personal approach to/brand of coaching is a nexus somewhere at half-point between counseling and coaching.

    As I now find myself without an office, and potentially moving East Coast-West Coast in the coming months, I’m needing to adapt my practice to over-the-phone sessions. And besides that, I’m very much wanting to branch out to a larger audience, anyway. So: adapting my practice to phone sessions seems to be a necessity.
    The fact that I’m perpetually nervous about talking over the phone is less relevant; I can ‘get over’ that.
    But I have a deeper concern about conducting sessions over the phone.

    Being physically present with my clients has been a really important therapeutic element. To be able to be as present with them as possible; to view their body language as they’re relating this-or-that point, etc. It’s really been crucial to me.

    So being on the phone feels not only like a step down for me, but I’m so nervous I’m kind of procrastinating hosting these sessions. I know I need to get moving with it, but I’m just so afraid I’m going to be totally ineffective without being there with them in person.

    So. THAT is my biggest fear/frustration/problem. Let me know if you have any particular thoughts on this.

    b) My ONE question for you about starting my own coaching business:
    Rates. I’ve done a bit of research, but in YOUR opinion, how much should I reasonably charge as a newbie, without certification? The nature of the techniques I use have an unwaveringly successful track record, with little effort or strain required from the client; AND the techniques provide immediate results in psychological (and even physical) symptoms. (I practice energy medicine. A harder science than something like reiki, but Meridian Therapy is significantly more empirical and targetted).
    So… I feel comfortable garaunteeing dramatic results. But, I have no idea what to charge as a reasonable starting rate. I’d like to be realistic about meeting my own financial needs (which are no less than dire, at present), WHILE KEEPING my rates affordable enough that I can reach the people that need these techniques.

    c. If you could ask ONE question about the Quickstart Coaching Code video home study course and live 30-day bootcamp, what would that question be?
    I recently purchased QuickStart, High Caliber Coaching, AND Master Coaching Techniques. In what manner/method/order would you recommend I approach these three courses? One of your associates recommended I go through in that order, if I remember correctly. Would you suggest that order, too?

    Jeff, thanks again. Your series is really making it possible – and realistic – for me to proceed with my dreams. I can’t tell you how much your videos/courses mean to me!

    Be well,
    Skye.

    Ed Atlas :
    a. What is your biggest FEAR, FRUSTRATION or PROBLEM when it comes to coaching or the coaching business? trying to get a steady stream of clients

    Key word… STEADY. Getting a client is within everyone’s grasp, but only certain coaching business models allow for consistent streams of clients.

    These are the two coaching business models (both of which are covered in the Quickstart Program) that create consistent clients:

    1. Speaking: Speaking is such a high-leverage business model because you are presenting to many people at once. They don’t all have to like you or want your coaching in order for you to profit from a speaking engagement. Also, speaking makes you into the guru, which is VERY ATTRACTIVE to prospective clients. People love to get coaching from the guru at the front of the room. I’ve seen this over and over again in the speaking engagements that I’ve done. There’s something about the phenomenon of many people paying attention to one single human that places a high ‘perceived value / authority’ on that speaker.

    2. Internet: The internet is the single biggest business game-changer and opportunity to grow your business in your lifetime. There will NEVER be another opportunity like this again while we are alive. Imagine if you lived in the time when the railroads or highways were just being built. If you saw what was going to happen to the economy and business as a result, could you not take massive advantage of those changes? Of course you could. That’s the time we are living in. Some will take action and some won’t. In my humble opinion, that will decide the winners and losers in the coming decades. WITH THAT SAID: The internet will allow you to get a constant stream of leads DAY AND NIGHT… then you just schedule them for free sessions with you and turn them into clients. It doesn’t get any easier than that.

    b. If you could ask me ONE question about getting paying clients and making money coaching, what would that question be? How do I coach clients in basketball online?

    I would put together TUTORIAL VIDEOS. Try blogging about it, etc. I can’t say what types of coaching relationships you’ll create with people around basketball without being in a physical proximity, but these first steps online will lead you to the answers. The key is that your prospects will tell you what they want and how they want it. It will be your job to filter through their comments and make real business decisions on what to work on and what to throw out (not to mention HOW you’re going to deliver the goods).

    My biggest fear/frustration/problem is the marketing part. I’d like to start a weeky group meeting on my topic. How do I get people intrerested and then how do I pull it off technically? Should I start in a real room or online?

  7. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Marguerite Bonnett :
    My biggest fear/frustration/problem is the marketing part. I’d like to start a weeky group meeting on my topic. How do I get people intrerested and then how do I pull it off technically?

    A weekly group meeting is a great place to start getting people interested in coaching with you (whether or not your charge for the group meetings). If your group is something people think is valuable, it won’t be hard to get them interested… however, that’s the trick… how to get them to think your group is valuable.

    Here’s a simple formula for getting your prospects to think what you’re going to do for them is valuable:

    1. Ask: “What do my prospects ALREADY value?” “What do they WANT?”
    2. Ask: “What do my prospects HATE?” “What are they afraid of?” “What frustrates them?”
    3. Ask: “What will my group (or offering) provide that OBVIOUSLY will help my prospects to get what they want and avoid or end what they hate?”
    4. Ask: “How can I communicate that (answer to #3) to my prospects?
    >>How can I make it clear?
    >>How can I make it believable?
    >>How can I make it enticing / emotionally impactful?
    >>How can I create INSTANT gratification for them?
    >>How can I make it FUN for them?

    Once you answer those questions, you’ll get much closer to WHAT to communicate to your prospects in order to attract them to your groups (or whatever you want to attract them to). Then the only remaining question is WHERE to find groups of them to communicate to (something we cover in the Quickstart program).

    Should I start in a real room or online?

    Simple answer: Ask your prospects and let them tell you what they feel would be most valuable… then set up the groups accordingly.

    Renee merlo :
    a. What is your biggest FEAR, FRUSTRATION or PROBLEM when it comes to coaching or the coaching business?
    Thought of it, not sure where to get clients, what topic to coach on

    Be careful about focusing on the TOPIC that you’re going to coach ‘on’. Coaching is not about knowledge and teaching. Coaching is about facilitating results for your client, which is more about having the skill to work with someone (i.e. asking questions, relating to where the client stands on issues, being a good sounding board, etc.). What you’ll teach (any knowledge that you want to transfer to your client) is secondary to those coaching skills. This is not to say that knowledge can’t add to the value of your coaching… just don’t depend on it to be the #1 driver of your business. That can limit your prospects and flexibility to move into different markets and work with a wider variety of people (which is important early on because you may not choose the perfect niche for you the first time out).

    The place to start is to help anyone, anywhere, anytime, and with anything. That will pay dividends to both your prospect and you. Over time you’ll learn the topics to work with.

    Re: where to find clients. See below…

    b. If you could ask me ONE question about getting paying clients and making money coaching, what would that question be?
    where to find clients.

    I’ll give you the short answer, and then read some of the other comment answers I’ve given on this blog (and watch some of the other videos as well). So here’s the short answer: 1. EVERYWHERE (humans) 2. SPEAKING (best source of excited, pre-disposed prospects and clients) 3. INTERNET (biggest opportunity for easy source of leads). All of these sources are covered in the Quickstart program.

    What is your biggest FEAR, FRUSTRATION or PROBLEM when it comes to coaching or the coaching business?

    Most people say they can’t afford it but they really want it.

    If you could ask me ONE question about getting paying clients and making money coaching, what would that question be?

    How do I find the clients that really need coaching and show them the value without breaking their bank? I am not trying to coach the rich and well-off. I want to coach the normal people that really could change their life to be rich and well off!

    There are two simple solutions to the problem of the semi-broke client (I’d suggest that you forget about trying to make money coaching totally broke people!):

    1. Sliding Scale fees: Start your semi-broke client at a very low fee (i.e. $50 / month) and every month increase the fee by $50 (month 2 = $100, month 3 = $150, etc.) until you reach the target fee you’d like to be making. Part of your challenge (and job) in this case will be to work with your client on how they’ll increase their income by enough to pay their increasing monthly fee (and hopefully even bigger income increases).

    2. Group Coaching: If your semi-broke prospect can afford $100 / month, then why not put them together with 5 other semi-broke clients and form a group? You’ll make more money per hour than with one on one coaching AND give your clients great coaching AND community at the same time! This is the game-changer for coaches that work with people that don’t have huge bankrolls.

    Jeff

    P.S. The Quickstart program touches on both these methods as well as other ways to set up fees comfortably that are a win for both you and your clients.

  12. Scott says:

    What are the most effective tactics that your most successful start-up clients (from the past six months) used to get their first twenty clients signed and engaged?

  13. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Scott :
    What are the most effective tactics that your most successful start-up clients (from the past six months) used to get their first twenty clients signed and engaged?

    Great question. Two different things that work best for the first twenty clients:

    1. Simple Sphere of Influence:

    This is just giving high caliber coaching to people that you’re already connected with.

    What you need to do this strategy successfully:

    >You need to know 50-100 decent prospects for coaching.
    >You need to have high level coaching skills.

    What to do to implement this strategy:

    >Call your sphere of influence and offer them a free coaching session. This is a scripted conversation, and must be executed in a certain way in order to get the session scheduled.
    >Run the sessions and sign them up for coaching. This is also a process that must be executed well in order to work. We cover the details in the Quickstart Coaching Code.
    >Repeat the above until you reach your 20 clients!

    2. Internet Lead Generator:

    This is a bit more complex. It entails setting up an opt-in page for your target market and advertising (usually pay per click) to get views on your page.

    What you need to do this strategy successfully:

    >You need to be able to create web pages, autoresponders, databases (or hire someone that can).
    >You need to be able to write a compelling ‘free session invite’ email.
    >You need to have high level coaching skills.

    What to do to implement this strategy:

    >Put together an incentive to offer your prospects for free (in exchange for opting in to your webpage). It could be a free audio or e-book, etc.
    >Build the opt in page and set up an email / name / number capture that will feed the data into your database.
    >Write an email that will invite these people to take a free session with you.
    >Set up the free sessions (some will call or email to request it, while you’ll need to follow up via phone personally with others)
    >Run the free sessions and sign them up for coaching.

    The most important abilities you’ll need to learn in either strategy is:

    >>Ability to run a free session that sells your coaching
    >>Ability to get leads
    >>Ability to get people to want to take a free session

    You’ll learn all these abilities in the Quickstart Coaching Code.

    a) biggest problem – developing a Unique Value Proposition when there are others offering coaching programs on the same topic. How to differentiate? Especially when the others have more impressive credentials. Help!!
    b) see above!

    KD :
    a) biggest problem – developing a Unique Value Proposition when there are others offering coaching programs on the same topic. How to differentiate? Especially when the others have more impressive credentials. Help!!
    b) see above!

    It is actually tough to do this before you’ve experienced the unique gifts that you offer as a coach to that target market. So that’s your first task: Work with people in that market and get them results. Figure out what you do with them that your competition doesn’t do. Ask your clients what they think sets you apart… Ask them what is the most valuable and rare thing you provide them.

    But let’s say that you’ve done that, and now you’re trying to figure out what to do with it…

    There are a few ways to differentiate:

    1. Different MARKET… narrow your niche and say that you SPECIALIZE with that narrower group. (i.e. narrow niche from all wieght loss to helping people specifically loose 10 inches of belly fat ONLY. OR Only work with women from 20-30yrs old on loosing weight.) Get the idea?
    2. Different METHOD… use a method that’s radically different than your competitors. People are always looking for a NEW WAY to get the SAME RESULT. That will set you apart FAST.
    3. Different RESULT… How can you improve or change the actual RESULT that people are looking for. Can you make the result BETTER, DIFFERENT, FASTER, EASIER, MORE FUN, ETC….
    4. Different MODE OF DELIVERY… there are lots of ways to deliver coaching and results. DVDs, cds, WEB, PHONE, IN PERSON, SEMINAR, WEBINAR, CONFERENCE CALLS, MASTERMINDS… ETC. What is the most common way that your competitors offer their MODE OF DELIVERY? Find out what the preferred mode of delivery would be from your prospects and offer them that. Make sure it’s a different (or better) mode of delivery than most of your competitors.

    What is the best way for me to find and KEEP paying clients?
    How much training do I need to call myself a coach?

  17. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Dennis cope :
    What is the best way for me to find and KEEP paying clients?

    Finding clients… check out this comment I made on the same subject (and see this video also).

    Keeping the clients… this depends on the market that you’re working with. Your client may get their result and then they’re done after 6 months, while other markets may have clients that stick around for 7 years. The better coach you are, the more people will want to keep working with you, but you may not have total control over how long they work with you.

    The best ways to KEEP your clients:

    1. Set up an agreement where they must sign up for a certain number of months, and hold them to that agreement.
    2. Find out all the different things that they could want and need (that would keep them coming back for more coaching) and keep offering them the NEXT THING… NEXT THING… NEXT THING…
    3. Create a great relationship with them. People love to keep working with people that they LIKE.

    How much training do I need to call myself a coach?

    It’s different for everyone. I suggest that you take at least 30 days to practice coaching and begin building your business before you expect to be totally confident that you can say you’re a coach. That’s the way we set it up in the Quickstart Coaching Code.

    However, you may need longer, and we have more extensive programs that offer deeper and more comprehensive certifications.

  18. Jack Austin says:

    Finding leads and calling prospects are the most difficult challenge for me.

  19. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Jack Austin :
    Finding leads and calling prospects are the most difficult challenge for me.

    Welcome to the club, Jack. Calling prospects was the hardest part for me when I first started coaching.

    This, for many coaches, is the least ‘fun’ part of the business.

    There are two things I would suggest:

    1. Find a lead generation system that brings leads to you. This alone will make things much easier for you.
    2. Hold your breath… and CALL PEOPLE… FOUR HOURS PER WEEK. Do this for 2 years. It may not be fun, but you’ll have a coaching business.

    By the way, the fact that this is HARD or SCARY or PAINFUL actually WORKS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE if you DO IT. Why?? Because it’s HARD SCARY AND PAINFUL FOR (ALMOST) EVERYBODY. Therefore most people don’t do it. Therefore if you DO IT then you’ll be the last man standing.

    That’s what separates the winners from the losers in this (and many) business.

    Make sure that when we go through the 30 day live quickstart process that you show up to all your calls and ask me to hold you accountable. You’ll get some momentum from that. A start is all you need to create the habit.

  22. John Kaufman, Oceanside, CA says:

    I was in the coachiing business, with a company called Buffini and Company. This company coached mainly realtors, and RE brokers. It was teaching them a system, not new, called working by referral. I was in this business of 7 years and finally left due to not seeing anything new as to helping my clients move forward in there business.
    In my time coaching the key element to coaching is, carefully listening FIRST, and asking good questions second. This is what makes a good coach first. Last, it is an outside perspective on the situation, liking seeing the forest through the trees trying to get the client to see the answer for themselves first and coaching them to that answer if they can’t. It them become accountability in doing what you asked them to do.
    I have no idea what you can teach me that I have not already learned myself but I will listen to your call?
    Thanks, John Kaufman

    Kim,

    Sounds like you’re doing all the right things. Therefore there are only two reasons that you’re not (yet) getting results:

    1. You’re not doing things right. (i.e. You’re going through the motions, but you’re doing things in such a way that people aren’t responding the way you want.) You need to find out what’s not working and improve it. Think about: >Your sales pitch >Your marketing material >Your product / offer >Your target market >Your passion and ability

    2. Lag time. (i.e. You haven’t been doing it very long, and you’ve got to wait to the results to catch up to your actions. Think of a farmer who expects the crop to be ready for reaping right after she plants the seeds… not going to happen, right?) Sometimes persistence is all it takes… most people stop right before their big break would have come.

    The big take away here? Stay in the game and keep improving everything you can think of. Fix and change your approach. Then keep it up and wait for the results to start. Remember that they’ll only begin with a trickle, but that’s okay. The flood gates will soon open and you’ll be wondering why you ever doubted yourself.

  28. Monique Swanson says:

    a. What is your biggest FEAR, FRUSTRATION or PROBLEM when it comes to starting your coaching business?
    I have been putting on free seminars for several months now and have received nothing but positive feedback. I offer this help to others because I truly enjoy doing so – but I have been reticent to charge for my knowledge. Up until recently that is! After being a keynote speaker at a convention for singles, I had the proverbial “light bulb” moment in which I realized that I can indeed offer my services at a reasonable fee – my fear has always been that people would not be willing to pay me (I hope what I am trying to say makes sense.)

    b. If you could ask me ONE question about starting your coaching business, what would that question be?
    Please do not be offended, however I have run into many people who charge fees for classes or certificates that end up not being worth the paper said certificate is printed on. So while I would like to remain optimistic, I cannot help but have some healthy scepticism. So I guess my question is two-fold: How can I feel reassured that by enrolling in your program I am going to end up with something tangible insofar as helping me start/run a coaching business? Second, would you say the majority of your income comes from teaching others how to coach or from BEING a coach?

    c. If you could ask ONE question about the Quickstart Coaching Code video home study course and live 30-day bootcamp, what would that question be?
    This is a bit repetitive of my previous question – what is the TOTAL cost (are there any hidden fees) from start to finish, and will I truly be able to use the information to run a successful business?

    Oops! I just noticed I spelt skepticism incorrectly! Sorry, the perfectionist in me could not let that slip by unnoticed!

    This fear is totally understandable. For some coaches, it never goes away. It’s actually a healthy fear… you should be, at a minimum, concerned about getting people to the point of buying your stuff. If you had no fear about that, I’d be a bit concerned at this point. This just shows that you care about what you’re providing and it means a lot to you.

    Let that fear drive you and motivate you to do great presentations and have the best value proposition possible. Let that fear drive you to practice your pitch more than most would. Let that fear push you to do a great job when people do purchase your services.

    Eventually you’ll see that the ‘fear’ has pushed you to success in your new business.

So I guess my question is two-fold: How can I feel reassured that by enrolling in your program I am going to end up with something tangible insofar as helping me start/run a coaching business?

    It’s up to you how to feel about your own decisions as to whether or not we work together. Ultimately, I promise you NOTHING. Why? Because all the results are in your hands, rather than mine. You’ve got to use what I teach you. You’ve got to do all the work (but, then again, you also get all the rewards… all you’d pay me is whatever the price of the program is).

    So, if you’re going to squander the resources you get (from me or anyone else that could help you), then don’t waste your time or money.

    However, if you’re going to do the work, then you’ll get many times the return on whatever small investment you make in our work together.

    All that aside, the Quickstart Coaching Code v2.0 is going to have a 30 day 100% money back guarantee, so if you do get it and don’t like what you experience, you can just ask for a refund (even after going through the entire program, 30 day live bootcamp, 3-day certification, etc.).

    I have 3 divisions in my company, a coach training division, a coaching division, and a business consulting division. The income rises and falls in a cycle within each of them, so when one is stagnant, the others are creating income. I’m focusing 90% of my time and energy on the coaches training division right now, and it accounts for about 50% of the businesses income. The team in my coaching business does a great job, so they help make it so I can walk away from it and it still brings in 50% of the total income. However, at times, my coaching and consulting businesses have brought in over $20k / month alone.

    It’s important to realize that training coaches is not the only (or even the best) market where you can be a coach and do quite well. There are much bigger opportunities available for a good coach. I just enjoy working with coaches, and it’s a good fit for me.

    This is a bit repetitive of my previous question – what is the TOTAL cost (are there any hidden fees) from start to finish

    I’m coming up with that within the next 24 hours. However, whatever the investment, everything will be included (except for any travel, phone, and internet expense on your part to access the resources). If you have any questions about this once the price is finalized, just ask.

    Not knowing you, I can’t say for sure, of course. However, I’ve noticed that if someone cares about people, is motivated, and puts at least 10 hours per week into the business, they succeed.

    This is THE most common frustration for all coaches, it seems! I’ve created a few videos on the subject that are free. Here are some links to them:

    1) How to Get Clients to Pursue YOU by Building a Big Coaching Client List on the Internet

    2) How You Can Start a Coaching Business FROM SCRATCH & Make Over $80,000 Per Year

    3) Make Clients Fall Out of The Sky

    Watch these, and if you still feel you need help, perhaps the Quickstart Bootcamp we’re going to have next month is a good move for you.

    Isabel :

    How to find people who really wants a coach and they can pay it for

    They’re all around you! The only problem is that they don’t ‘want coaching’. No one ‘wants coaching’. They want what coaching will GET THEM. They want the BENEFITS of coaching. The key is not necessarily to find a special group of people that just LOVES coaching. The key is to find people that want a specific benefit that you know you can provide them (through coaching). Then you’ve got to figure out how to communicate that to them in a way where they’ll take action. This takes some thinking, time, practice, and skill (part of which I’ll teach you, and part of which you’ll learn in time).

    – not being qualified; not having the “right” credentials.

    I agree. You’ve got to have the right credentials.

    However, there is only one credential you MUST have in order to be a successful coach:

    CARE

    If you don’t have that one, no other credential will help you.

    If you CARE, you’ll figure out how to help your clients.

    If you CARE, your clients will LOVE you.

    If you CARE, you’ll be worth every penny of your fee.

    If you DON’T CARE, anything you do as a coach will be a waste of time, and, frankly, disgusting.

    Kim :

    If you could ask me ONE question about starting your coaching business, what would that question be?
    – can this be done while working a full-time job to support myself and my son?

    You need about 10 hours per week to put towards your coaching business to make consistent progress. If you feel you can put ten hours per week into working on your coaching business, then, over time, you should do well (assuming you’re doing the right things).

    Trust me Jeff is going to help you if you are sincere about wanting to do this. He is not one of those people on the web who shuck and jive you out of money. I am just like you Monique and I always have healthy skepticism (which is healthy!) but after spending the last month watching his videos I’m absolutely sure he offers you the more value for your money than almost anyone I’ve come across. He seems to leave no stone unturned in the quest to provide people like you and I the opportunity to make a living a coach in a very real, practical way.

    By ‘get in’ I assume you mean ‘coach people in that industry’.

    Simple:

    1) Join the association(s) in that industry
    2) Get to know all the people of influence in the industry
    3) Walk in to every business in the industry and get to know the owner(s), management, and employees
    4) Find out, in detail, what the people of influence, owners, management, and employees want.
    5) Find out, in detail, what the people of influence, owners, management, and employees need.
    6) Give everything you discovered in #4 & #5 to them FOR FREE.
    7) Sometime after that, you’ll begin to make plenty of money doing what you had been doing free of charge.
    8 Sometime after that, you’ll be one of the top experts in that industry.

    Tonya :

    a. What is your biggest PROBLEM? A: not having enough start-up capital to cover front-end costs: marketing/ venue and professional service fees

    The good news is that you really don’t need much money in order to get started as a coach. You do need some time. I advise you to take about 10 hours per week to get your business started. If you have a few hundred bucks to cover Internet, phone, and other associated business expenses, then that helps as well.

    Personally, I started with no budget, no marketing materials, no website, and a phone. Things worked out pretty well for me.

    If you don’t have enough money to cover marketing expenses (advertising, etc.), then you should be spending your time doing activities that will provide what the marketing expenses would have given you. Usually, marketing generates leads for your business. If you don’t have any marketing money then you need to go out and network, call and talk to people, get referrals from your sphere of influence, and go anywhere else to get in front of groups. Talk to people you know probably would need your coaching. This can also include social networking social media and other associated online forums where you might meet your target customer.

    Tonya :

    b. If you could ask me ONE question? A: what is a great hourly/ monthly rate to charge?

    You really need to decide your own hourly or monthly rate depending on your own comfort level. I don’t recommend charging an hourly rate because coaching and the value associated with coaching has nothing to do with the time that you spend with your client and has everything to do with the valuable coaching and advice that you will offer them. Instead of thinking “hourly”, think of a monthly rate for your coaching, or, at a minimum, a flat fee for the results that you are willing to provide your clients. Just make sure that you’ll more than be paid for the amount of time it will probably take you to produce those results for them. You will still be able to make plenty of money “per hour”.

    Charge what you’re comfortable with, even if it’s a very small amount of money and then slowly increase it as your comfort level expands. Once your confidence about your ability to help your clients increases, your income will follow suit.

    Tonya :

    c. If you could ask ONE question about the Quickstart Coaching Code? A: what is your product’s “Guarantee?”

    I decided to create a 30 day guarantee for the Quickstart Coaching Code, which means that you can try everything in the program for 30 days and still get your entire investment returned to you no questions asked. You can even participate in our live 30 day boot camp and the Master Coach Certification Training. They are all open to you to attend, and you’ll still be able to get your money back (if it’s within the 30 day guarantee period).

    Thanks

    Sean,

    What you’ve done the last six months is actually very successful. You contacted 100 of your 200 sphere of influence contacts, which is phenomenal. Also, you secured several clients. It’s really important to understand that even though only one of your clients came directly from the calls you made to your sphere of influence, that the other two clients probably would not have landed in your practice if you hadn’t been doing the kind of hard work you’ve done contacting your sphere of influence. The point here is that it’s not the results that you’re getting from those direct calls that matters, it’s who you become in the process. As you become more powerful in the face of the challenges your sphere of influence provides you, you’ll naturally attract more and better clients. You mentioned that you really hate making these calls. That’s the “old you” that is now developing to another level. That’s part of what it takes to attract more and more clients to you over time.

    Two things that you should do over the next six months:

    #1: You need to contact those other 100 people in your sphere of influence.

    #2: You need to add one of two strategies to your current prospecting and contact regiment.

    First Option: Get speaking engagements and set free sessions through your speaking engagements.

    Second Option: Internet strategy… meaning that you need to set up your squeeze page, your blogs, your traffic generating strategy, and possibly a social media strategy as well (as we’ve discussed from time to time).

    If you add at least one of these two strategies to your current sphere of influence contacts, you’re going to double the amount of business that you brought in over the last six months.

    Also, don’t forget that when you initially start contacting your sphere of influence within the first six months of your coaching business, people will tend to doubt you (because you’ve never done this before… so you’ll gain more credibility as you continue to contact the same people and new people within your sphere of influence).

  45. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Bianca :

    a. That I will not find any clients

    I can appreciate that fear. It’s the fear that almost every new coach has. Many coaches measure their success as a coach by counting the number of clients they have.

    First thing you can do to overcome this fear is to stop judging yourself on the number of clients you have. Make a pact with yourself that you’ll avoid doing that, or if you ever catch yourself doing that, you’ll stop yourself immediately. Only you can decide whether or not you’re successful, and sometimes just helping a few people is a pretty big deal, depending on your starting point. For that matter, no matter how ‘good’ you think you’re doing, there’s always a higher level. So, on the other side, don’t get a big head from your version of success, because tomorrow, the rung will be higher.

    The #1 reason why you shouldn’t worry? You’ll likely have trouble finding clients at first. Since you’re certain not to find any clients at the outset, there’s really nothing to worry about. Just EXPECT failure, and when you begin to succeed, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. On the other hand, if you fail, it really won’t bother you so much as to make you quit.

    The fact is that EVERYBODY starts out as a failure (with few exceptions). The key is not to avoid failure. The key is NOT TO STAY THERE.

    How do you make sure that eventually you’ll succeed? How do you guarantee (at least in the long term) that failure doesn’t happen to you??

    Every day, do something to get a client.

    Eventually, the universe will pay you back for the repeated work and attempts to succeed.

    Bianca :

    b. Once I become a ‘certified coach’…where do I get the materials..or coaching ‘program’ that will be my blueprint of how to coach clients weekly?

    First, there doesn’t have to be an exact blueprint for what you’ll do weekly with a client. It could be as simple as:

    1. Check in
    2. go over commitments
    3. get results
    4. make new commitments

    If you have a specific niche you’re working with, or you’re working with a group coaching situation, that may require a process, and it can get more complex. In those circumstances, you’ll likely need to build a more elaborate and sophisticated blueprint.

    How do you create that blueprint? (the short version)

    Ask: What results do my clients need/want to achieve?

    Ask: What must I get them to do, learn, experience, or talk about, the end result of which is going to be THEM ACHIEVING THAT RESULT?

    You’ll gain a large list of answers, and then your job will be to assemble those answers into your program. Create a program that will cause all those things to happen over a period of time.

    As long as you continue to improve that program every time you run it, you’ll eventually have the best program on earth for that niche.

    Coaching is about results. If you have a program that produces results for your clients, you’ll continue to have a more and more successful program.

    This may seem overly simple, but — Charge them.

    More specifically, you need a funnel of free sessions to you. If you are decent at converting those free sessions to clients, then you’ve got a business!

    There are a variety of things that create free sessions:

    jv’s
    networking
    speaking
    internet
    social media
    prospecting

    …and on and on (we cover all of them in the Quickstart Coaching Code).

    Pricing will be indicated in the call (and in emails I’ll send). Only you can say whether it’s worth it for you, but, if you KNEW that you’d get 2-4 clients from doing this, (and you charge a normal rate or $250+ per month), I can promise you that dealing with the money issues will be worth it. In fact, after getting a result like that, you won’t have those same money issues (of course, money is always a consideration… that won’t change).

    The answer to these questions, as always, is in your hands.

    Thanks much, Jeffrey!

    Most of your clients in a ‘niche’ will not have much money, motivation, intelligence, etc…

    But you only need 1 in 100 to be different. Do your passion and expertise and your job is to MAKE A DIFFERENCE for the niche you’ve chosen. When you do, the money won’t be a problem.

    Once you’ve done that successfully, you will uncover the profit and revenue available within that niche and ONLY THEN can you decide whether you want to stick with that niche for the long term.

    There are a few exceptions to this ‘rule’. Some people start a coaching business purely as a money-making (business) proposition (not as a passion). For them, I suggest to do the opposite. Select a BIG and RICH niche with LOTS of competition. These more hard-nosed players could care less as to whether or not they’re doing their passion. They just want to make money (and lots of it). The prior approach is not a good idea for them.

    1.)I don’t know what I’m doing

    This is the one commonality we had when we were new. It’s one of the big challenges, and what’s worse is that even when you learn the ‘knowledge’ part, nothing gets you around the need to build a skill set. Having the skills doesn’t guarantee success, or course, but it certainly puts the odds in your favor.

    The best thing to do is:

    1. Get educated
    2. Take LOTS of action (using what you’ve learned)
    3. List the important skill sets you need to build, and start working on improving those
    4. Repeat

    Khem :

    2.)Why haven’t over 1000 visitors to my site signed up for sessions?

    3.)?

    Here are a few ideas:

    1. There was no compelling reason (clearly) given for WHY they should sign up.
    2. NOBODY wants a free coaching session. That’s the last thing to offer visitors on a website… they’ll likely never sign up for it.
    3. The site doesn’t show one niche focus or area where you promise to help, therefore you look like a “master of nothing”.
    4. Site is somewhat cluttered and amateurish in design (not the biggest problem, but it may detract a bit). Much better to just use a clean wordpress blog design.
    5. Not one single page on your site has a compelling opt-in offer with a clear call to action and the opt in form ‘above the form’ (i.e. visible). This is the kiss of death for your site.

    #1, 2, & 5 are the most important reasons to fix.

    Damon :
    a. What is your biggest FEAR, FRUSTRATION or PROBLEM when it comes to coaching or the coaching business?
    Successful Marketing

    Marketing is definitely a big hurdle for all new businesses. The good news is that marketing can be learned, and it’s NOT a performance skill (i.e. you don’t have to do it on command in the moment under pressure). You can take your time to learn it and to implement what you’ve learned in your business.

    The point is that if you have basic English language abilities with the written word (or whatever language your target market speaks), and you’re willing to learn over time, you can conquer this completely and reap the great rewards that good marketing can bring to a coaching business.

    It’s not likely for most new coaches to be making $30,000 within 6 months of starting. I’ve seen new coaches do very well (many coaches I’ve worked with had six figures within 1 or 2 years of starting their businesses), but reaching that number is not something I would predict early in your business. Personally, it took me years to build my business to the point of making that figure (plus long work weeks). That said, anything’s possible, and for certain coaches it’s definitely doable in a variety of ways.

    Steve :

    I started my coaching practice about 18 mos. ago yet I still have “start up” issues with attracting prospects, both locally and through the internet. I know what I’m doing when it comes to coaching and I have a good conversion rate when speaking with prospects. However, I just don’t have a steady stream of people inquiring. Looking forward to the webinar!

    This is a common problem — being very effective in signing up interested prospects, but having a challenge with getting enough of those prospects to talk to.

    The most common reasons a good coach won’t have enough interested prospects are:

    1. You have no joint venture partners.
    2. You don’t spend enough time prospecting.
    3. You have no lead generation systems that work on their own (automated or outsourced).
    4. You have no (or not enough) speaking opportunities.
    5. Your network sucks (or you have no network, or you don’t regularly have quality communications with your network).
    6. You have no effective internet strategy.
    7. The market you’re pursuing generally doesn’t want/need coaching (or they can’t afford it).

    See which of these fit for you. If there’s more than one, then take some time to evaluate which problem makes the most sense to solve first. The key is to only focus on as many of these problems as you have time and energy to solve at one time (likely, no more than 1 or 2), and then to work until you solve that particular problem completely and master it.

    There are less common scenarios where a coach chooses the wrong problem to solve first. They try to create an internet strategy before they’ve even signed a client up for paying coaching, etc. Coaches that put the cart before horse tend to get stuck in the ‘mud’ for years, and it becomes less and less likely that they ever create the business they’d hoped to.

    How’s that for a positive message!?

    The important point out of all that fire and brimstone? Get UNSTUCK fast and make progress in an important strategic area until you’re at the next level. Give that goal 100% of what you’ve got.

    I am a business coach now. I also am a due diligence expert for buyers and sellers; investors and developers. In addition, I have been an internet radio host, a program that I started from scratched when internet radio was not popular, and we didn’t have streaming audio available. My concentration is in Business, Entertainment and Sports My queries are: A. What areas of coaching should I concentrate on?

    Your expertise points to a business/professional focus (especially since both sports and entertainment have a business backbone). However, three BIG questions will widen your options to consider:

    1. What’s your passion? What your passion within these areas of experience and expertise/knowledge?

    2. What areas of entertainment and sports are you focused on?

    3. Within all this experience, knowledge, expertise, and passion, what networks, contacts, leaders, and people do you already have access to?

    ida R Muorie :

    B. Where is the global application if I want to serve a global market?

    You can work globally without much adjustment as long as much of your coaching work tends to be over the phone or internet. Even face to face coaches have now branched out to a global (or at least national) reach using video conferencing, web meetings, etc.

    If the niche(s) you choose are only based in one geographic region, of course, you’ll likely be constrained by that, but if you, say, coached entertainment or sports businesses, or people that work in those industries, you’d likely have a market that would only be only constrained by language and the value you choose to create with your customers.

    One of my biggest frustrations is not being able to define a niche for my coaching, or even if I truly need a ‘niche’ as I get started. The other is not knowing how to effectively market myself.

  72. Ally says:

    a) Biggest Fear- So many coach training companies- how to choose, where to put my investment?

    b) Starting – Do I put my pricing on my website? I don’t like coaches trying to obligate me to enrolling on a 6 months ‘program’ is this what you advise? I am happy with 3 months so should I go with that for my clients?

    c) I am an accountant but I want to focus on business coaching with small creative companies will the Quick Start Coaching Code help me or is it just for life coaching?

  73. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Tom Murray :
    a) My biggest frustration is finding my niche

    The ‘what is my niche?’ conversation is a perpetual question that never goes away, even after you’ve got plenty of clients. The key is twofold:

    1. Know the right questions to ask, so you’re searching in the right places.
    2. Go out and coach BEFORE you know what your niche is.

    The second key is a big pitfall for many coaches. So many coaches expect to wait around twiddling their thumbs until their niche taps them on the shoulder and pours clients down their throat. NEVER HAPPENS. Coaches that are out on the street helping people daily… they are the ones that find the niches (because that’s where the insight AND the niches are found).

    Tom Murray :

    b) How do I come up with a short and powerful statement to explain to people what I do without it being so vague.

    You don’t. Until you’re ONLY talking to a very well-defined target market that you’ve chosen as your niche (see above), you’ll need to STOP trying to work out a ‘magic elevator speech’. That doesn’t do any good in the near-term.

    Don’t worry about telling people what you do. Frankly, people don’t CARE what you do (at least nearly as much as you do, and you’re not even sure enough yet to have a precision statement describing it).

    Instead, get interested in your prospects and contacts that you’re meeting. Ask them about themselves and what THEY do. Soon, they’ll turn their interest to you and ask you the same questions. By the time they’re interviewing you, you’ll know how to TAILOR what you do to THEIR needs, wants, and problems.

    EXAMPLE:

    Your time talking to an executive revealed that their want is to change jobs, and their biggest problem is that they can’t find enough time for their family.

    Then they ask, “What do you do?”

    You answer, “Actually, I coach executives through challenging job transitions as well as help them with their work/life balance so their family doesn’t disown them!” (or whatever variation you come up with at the moment). That’s precise and personalized to that particular prospect.

    Later on in your career, you may find that most of your clients are executives that want the same things. Now you’ve got your elevator speech, website, niche, sales and marketing material… EVERYTHING.

  74. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Steve :

    Thanks for your insights! I can readily identify all of those challenges in my current situation. I’d like to know more about joint ventures (ie. how to identify a good match, how to initiate the relationship, etc.). Looking forward to the call!

    I could take a day and we’d cover the answers to these questions.

    For now, the most important step is for you to identify your candidates. Ask these questions:

    1. Who already has my customer?
    2. Who works with my customer BEFORE they need me?

    Once you have a list of these types of contacts, you just need to put time into getting in touch. Can you be ‘perfect’ in your pitch to these partners? NO, but over time, you’ll get better. The key (as I discussed earlier this week in the call) is to START.

    Jeff

  75. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Emily :

    a. My biggest fear is making the jump from a 9 to 5 job with a high salary to coaching which feels a little like teetering on a tight rope without a safety net.

    Transitioning is 50% psychology and 50% time and resource management. There’s no formula for it, or ‘how to’. A lot of the solutions within this process comes out of action and commitment on your part, along with the support of a community and a coach. This is what many of the coaches in the Quickstart program do with my support.

    Emily :

    b. My question has to do with making a decision to be all in—just leave my work and start a business or is there a way (possibly more financially prudent) to kind of edge in slowly to reach personal financial sustainability first?

    It depends on your style. Some coaches need a more gradual transition, while others just make the leap. You don’t need to leave a job to build your coaching business. If you’re willing to put in 10 hours per week and some energy, you should be able to start the process.

    Emily :

    c. How important is it to have a well-defined niche? I am most interested in coaching people over the age of 60 (as I am) who are transitioning from the roles which have defined them for the past 40+ years to the uncharted territory of this phase of life?

    You have a great start for a niche. It’s important but not essential to start… most successful coaches had no idea what their niche was when they started. See my comment above on the same subject.

  76. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    levaughn :

    My biggest fear is how to start successful without dependence on my spear of influence. My spare of influence at large are not financially capable of paying for coaching services, so how and where do I begin to target those with need and ability to pay? Thank You!

    There are many ways to handle this:

    1. Get a new sphere of influence:

    There are plenty of groups that want and can afford coaching. Go meet them. Join their world. Get interested in them. Become someone important or essential to their communities.

    2. Go online and get your business there:

    If you’re leads are coming from online sources, you can attract a different sphere of influence without leaving your office. No need to make new friends (unless you want to).

    3. Speak and get your business there:

    If you get speaking engagements, you’ll be the authority for that sphere of influence for that period of time. Set up free sessions with the audience and sign them up for coaching later.

    Jeff

  77. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Carla :

    One of my biggest frustrations is not being able to define a niche for my coaching, or even if I truly need a ‘niche’ as I get started.

    NO you do NOT need a niche when you start. You need to CARE and HELP PEOPLE.

    I cover this subject in great detail in the answers above this comment. See those responses.

    Carla :
    The other is not knowing how to effectively market myself.

    This is a whole course in itself. If you don’t know marketing, I can help you with that.

    The starting point is understanding that you don’t market ‘yourself’. You market what your prospective clients WANT. Figure out what they want and give them that, you’ll become a better marketer than most if you do that alone.

    Carla :
    My biggest fear, as is likely a common one among aspiring coaches, is that I will not be good enough and I will disappoint my clients.

    I discuss this at the end of this call. Listen to the replay if you missed it. The point is that those who have this fear are the least likely to disappoint their clients because they’re so motivated to avoid it. This is a sign of CARING about your clients and your service to them… (a good sign).

  78. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    nina :

    A friend of mine has been in your coaching program for over a year and is not making $20K/mth.

    You’ve got to do a lot more than just ‘be’ in my coaching program (or anyone’s program) in order to make $20k per month. Income like that comes from DOING, not just BEING. (Being is important, too, but most coaches have a bigger problem in the ACTION department).

    nina :

    Is it a realistic goal?

    Two answers:

    1. Is it a realistic goal? YES, it’s realistic. Lots of coaches are making WAY MORE than that. They’re my students, too.

    2. Is it typical? NO. What’s typical is for an aspiring coach to twiddle their thumbs and do nothing.

    My suggestion:

    Be REALISTIC but don’t be TYPICAL.

    Jeff

  79. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Ally :

    a) Biggest Fear- So many coach training companies- how to choose, where to put my investment?

    If you don’t know where to put your investment, put it in your mattress. Wait until you KNOW what to do based upon your own evaluation standards. At least, in that case, if you’re wrong, then you’ll learn something about how you need to evaluate differently next time.

    Here are a few keys I suggest you look for when making a training investment:

    1. COACHING SKILLS: This is the most important area, so we?ll start here. A good mentor will share with you all the coaching skills you?ll need to coach anyone, not just a few techniques that they or their company developed. You should learn the skills through information, practice, getting feedback. Specifically, you?ll want to learn how to use accountability to get your clients into action, strategy techniques to work out the plan with your clients, and inner game psychology techniques to uncover what?s really going on with your clients and re-wire them so they automatically create their own success.

    2. BUSINESS SKILLS: Whatever you invest in should teach you how to build the business, including administrative, sales, and marketing aspects. You?ll want to make sure you are taught all the associated coaching business models such as information products, consulting, and the others we discussed before.

    3. GET CLIENTS: The perfect training investment teaches you how to get paying clients and keep them coming back for the long term.

    4. LEARN BY DOING: The perfect training investment gives you real world experience in coaching, marketing, and selling your coaching. Make sure you learn by actually DOING IT vs. just reading about it or sitting in a classroom. The perfect training investment should feed coaching techniques to you during a coaching session, write your web copy with you, and literally participate in building your coaching business strategy. If you?re not actually practicing the coaching during your training, then you?re really not learning. Why? because rather than just sitting passively in the classroom thinking, “Ok, here?s more coaching information,” now you?re thinking, “Ok, I need to know what to do when this happens with a client,”

    5. MASTERMIND: The perfect training investment will expose you to an entire network of coaches that you can learn from, mastermind with, and get coaching from. The perfect training investment should provide a community of the best coaches that will always be there for you. Why is this important? Your mastermind group is shoulder to shoulder in the trenches with you… You’ll learn from their successes and failures. Learning from their experience will dramatically shorten the learning curve. You don’t have time to know EVERYTHING, so you can take advantage the knowledge of 5-10 coaches in your mastermind.

    6. WORK FOR THE COMPANY: The perfect training investment will help open the door to either working with their company or generate new clients for you after you?ve proven yourself.

    7. ONGOING SUPPORT: The perfect training investment has an extensive enough program on ongoing support for the long term. That way, you can also learn over time, and stack the next level methods and techniques on top of that foundation that you’ve built already. Even if you do start making fast money from your coaching business, it’s going to take some ongoing work to grow or even maintain that business. Don?t work with a mentor that just gives you your certification and walks away. Work with one that sticks with you to provide ongoing support and training FOR LIFE. You’ve got to keep improving, building, tweaking, etc., if you want to have a great business.

    8. QUICKSTART: The perfect training investment will teach you how to get started quickly with little time and on a budget. The difference between successful coaches and coaches that just don?t make it, is getting started. Every other skill can be learned in time, but most coaches never learn to just start! You can read books on coaching and business. You can watch videos. You can go to seminars. You can talk and talk about it. …and still never get started. If you never get in the game, there?s no possibility to win the game!

    9. MULTI-MEDIA MATERIALS: The perfect training investment has multi-media, online downloads, etc., of the entire curriculum that is taught in the course, so you can review the strategies taught again and again.

    Unfortunately, a lot of the coach training companies don?t provide personal mentoring, feedback, and the sales and marketing education you really need to make it in this business. These organizations usually don’t teach you how to really produce a nice profit in the coaching industry. They also don?t employ coaches and they don’t set up coaches businesses for them. They only train. Once you are trained, you are on your own.

    Ally :

    b) Starting – Do I put my pricing on my website? I don’t like coaches trying to obligate me to enrolling on a 6 months ‘program’ is this what you advise? I am happy with 3 months so should I go with that for my clients?

    DO NOT put your pricing on your website. You’re just tipping your hand before it’s time to discuss it with a qualified prospect.

    Start with whatever you’re comfortable with. If you’re happy with 3 months for now, start there. You’ll likely need to change it later as your practice evolves anyway.

    Ally :

    c) I am an accountant but I want to focus on business coaching with small creative companies will the Quick Start Coaching Code help me or is it just for life coaching?

    Short answer – YES… 80-90% of the program is fully applicable to business coaches.

    Kelly :
    my greatest fear is that I will never get any clients.
    I will just totally fail at being a life coach.

    The fear of not getting any clients is a healthy one, since that’s the primary goal of a coaching business. If that fear drives you to work to get those clients, then the fear has done it’s job. If that fear keeps you from getting started in the first place, then that fear is working against you. USE that fear in your favor, and you’ll see the results you desire.

    Failure, on the other hand, is the kind of fear that has no basis in reality. Most of the time, fear of failure is focused upon something that you’re ALREADY failing at. (Those coaches that have the fear of being a failure as a life coach are ALREADY a failure as a life coach… They don’t have any clients and aren’t doing what it takes to grow their business either… how ELSE would you define failure?) Those coaches that KEEP TRYING cannot fail because they continue to grow and learn and eventually, they get where they want to go.
    Not having what you want (in the moment) is NOT FAILURE, as long as you take action and keep trying for the gold.

    Kelly :

    Matthew :

    Hey Jeff, as a certified life coach specialized in pick up artistry and attracting woman. I find most clients are embarrassed to admit they have a problem…

    A. How can I turn potential prospects into buying customers?

    Start with FREE SESSIONS. We talk about this in the call in more detail. People are willing to buy when they are confident:

    1. that you can help them get the result they want
    2. that the result is worth the money you want to charge them

    A free session helps you build value and credibility with them so they get confident about both these things. Check out the call for more details as to how this should work.

    Matthew :
    B. what can I do that will make them want to buy?

    We cover this in detail on the call, but let me give another thought:

    You can’t make people want to buy. No one wants to buy coaching. You can’t even make people want what your coaching will help them to get! There’s NO WAY you’ll get them to want to buy coaching.

    However, certain people DO WANT certain things (at certain times in their life)… some of these things, like dating, etc., you can help them to get. Although you can’t MAKE THEM want these things, you can find them when they DEMONSTRATE their desire for these things.

    Once they’ve demonstrated their desire for these things, then all you have to do is PROVE that you can help them to GET IT, and give them an opportunity to commit to paying for your help.

    They say YES or NO, and then the band plays on…

    The point is… don’t even try to make people want to buy from you.

    Make them BELIEVE YOU CAN HELP THEM. Then they’ll buy on their own terms.

    Jeff

  89. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Laura :

    I am hesitating about being able to balance family obligations and be fully committed to clients needs. I think I need better organizational skills and time management training.

    Thank you for great responses to the above questions. I am learning much already.

    You need to break through the hesitation. Once you’ve done that, you’ll learn what’s needed.

    Commitment happens BEFORE ability, not the other way around.

    You can’t WAIT to develop the ability, and THEN commit. In fact, it’s impossible to develop the ability to get the result without FIRST being committed.

    Let’s make this relevant to your situation: balancing family obligation and client’s needs…

    STEP ONE: Commit to your client’s needs.
    STEP TWO: Figure out how to balance that with family obligations.

    Make sense? Any other way is a FALSE SOLUTION (meaning it’s not a solution at all).

    RE: better organizational skills

    That’s probably true, but don’t wait to make a commitment because that’s the case! You’ll develop the skills you need through dealing with the challenges that turn up as a result of your new commitment.

    RE: time management training

    Yes, again, probably a good idea. The best time management training in the world is to make a commitment that you don’t ‘have time for’. YES, you can go too far with that, but when this happens, the solutions you find will be PRICELESS (and they’re free).

  90. Jeffrey T. Sooey says:

    Donna :

    a. What is your biggest FEAR, FRUSTRATION or PROBLEM when it comes to starting your coaching business?

    Biggest challenge is making more time to build my list with new content via blogging, newsletters, etc.

    Right now, it may not even be worth your time to do ‘list building’ activities, because your system won’t likely work (based upon my observations of your site).

    I spend exactly 0 hours per week building my list (and I have over 10,000 in my contact database).

    From what I see on your site, I have only 3 critical things that you don’t:

    1. a team that writes articles for me every week
    2. a compelling incentive / call to action on my sidebar opt-in
    3. a squeeze page system along with PPC ads

    YES, these things take time and money to build and maintain, but they PAY FOR THEMSELVES MANY TIMES OVER. You don’t have to do them all at once, of course, but if you’re serious about building your list then start on one of these as a project and possibly…

    >get educated on how to best fulfill on that project
    >get help from people who can ‘do it for you’

    Donna :

    b. If you could ask me ONE question about starting your coaching business, what would that question be?
    How do I convert individuals who consistently “pick my brain” for free coaching advice, into paying clients?

    Stop talking to those people (or) let them know that they don’t get to do that.

    There’s got to be an end point for those ‘free coaching’ conversations, and YOU must clearly define that for your client (why would your CLIENT do that??). Use those ‘free conversations’ for enrolling them rather than just giving away free help. These calls should generally be limited to 1 (maybe 2 max), and a BIG part of them need to be strategic for your purpose of enrolling the client into coaching (goal setting, value agreement, test closing, closing, handling objections, negotiating, etc.)

    If you don’t know how to do that stuff, then you must learn!

    If you know how to do that stuff, and yet you’re not ‘doing what you know’, then get an accountability coach to kick your butt!

    This is the perennial question when you’re first starting out. You first need to clarify how you already naturally help people, then add to that a few questions like:

    What am I passionate about in terms of coaching?
    What am I good at in terms of coaching?
    What RESULTS would people be willing to pay for?

    Take all this information and put it in a large list.

    Then start narrowing down your choices to only the options that tend to rate well across the board (i.e., you’re passionate about it, good at it, and you could make money with it, and you’ve also done it for other people already).

    If you can find something that hits ALL of these criteria, I’d bet you have a winner… or at least it’s worth trying it out.

    My biggest fear is just getting started. Actually starting, getting a rhythm and practice in place to hone my skills, and a fear of being successful!

    My biggest fear is just getting started. Actually starting, getting a rhythm and practice in place to hone my skills, and a fear of being successful!

    This is a common fear… just getting started.

    Usually being afraid of getting started comes out of the ‘hope’ pattern.

    When we avoid starting, we hang on to hope that our dreams can work… that they’re possible. Our fear is that if we were to start, that it may not work, and therefore we lose our ‘hope’.

    Therefore we get to have the pleasure that the ‘hope’ offers us, rather than facing the reality and challenge of making our dreams into a reality. We feel that without the ‘hope’ we’ll be sad or crushed, or not survive.

    However, the biggest reason why we’d rather hang on to the ‘hope’ of our dreams working out is simple: WE DON’T BELIEVE OUR DREAMS ARE POSSIBLE… therefore we’d rather just ‘hope’ versus facing the ‘reality’ that it’s never going to happen.

    The truth is that this ‘it’s never going to happen’ belief is not real, but we MAKE IT REAL because we act upon the belief.

    The key to breaking through your fear is to change your belief (i.e. your doubt) about whether your dream is POSSIBLE. Once you do that, this fear won’t be as strong in you, and won’t likely hold you back.
