Your mindset will determine the level of success you’ll achieve in your business (and, yes, as well as in your personal life).
Here are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to growing your Life Coaching business:
- Don’t limit yourself to playing small
Have a Grand Vision and believe that you can accomplish your business goals, and get all the help you need in order to make it happen
- Believe that you have a service that the world needs, and act accordingly!
Don’t be shy to promote / offer / share your service with the world – you have solutions that could help solve many people’s pain or help them with their burning desires. People have needs; you have solutions – Don’t Hide Your Light!
Make sure you Understand Your Ideal Clients’ Needs, Challenges, and Burning Desires, and offer it to them with confidence!
- Don’t be afraid to charge what your service is worth
Your time and skills are valuable – share them with the world in exchange for a fair price
- Don’t try to reinvent the wheel!
Business-building and marketing has been successfully done for years. There are systems in place and fundamental business-strategies that work when applied correctly. Make your life easier – implement business-growth and client-attraction strategies that have already been proven to work; and as importantly, learn to implement them correctly
- Don’t Stay Stuck(!)
A cool quote I read once, said “Don’t ever stop! Even if you are on the right track, the train will run you over ” – I’m sure it’s paraphrased a bit, but you get the gist…
If you don’t know which way to go, ask for directions. If what you are doing doesn’t work, ask someone who knows how to make it work and apply what you learn.

- Have a Plan
Use a project management tool, such as trello.com to keep track of your tasks and activities, AND make sure to spend at least 2 to 4 hours EVERY DAY on tasks that will get you paying clients. Hint: it’s not blogging, web design, social media, reading emails – instead, learn how to network, how to conduct sales conversations, how to convert leads into paying clients, and other proven client-attraction strategies.
Successful coaches have a great Plan of Action and work the plan. If you don’t have a professionally developed business-growth and marketing plan, make sure to download the ClientsEnrollmentFunnels 90-Days Marketing Planner – Click HERE to receive the 12-week planner in your eMail inbox.
- Fail Fast
…and Learn from Each Experience!
Take calculated risks – Ask yourself, “What’s the worst thing that can happen if I do this?” If you can live with the worse-case scenario, then give yourself the Green Light.
- Become a life-long student of marketing!
The better you get at marketing your business, the more people will benefit from your services; and probably as importantly, you’ll be making as much money – or more – than you ever dreamed… or perhaps exactly as much as you wanted, but that’s still a pretty good deal, and it all starts with learning to market yourself like a pro!
* Keep in mind that the ClientsEnrollmentFunnels program has all the tutorials you need, and you can access them for only $1.00 for 30-days (and if you enroll now, you get to continue at 80% OFF, during the pre-launch period), as well as you’ll get to attend our support calls and get some 1-on-one help. If you have a better source, go for it – the key is to get trained and get the support you need, so you can start getting paid for your service.
- Resist the “Shiny Object Syndrome”!
Don’t get distracted by the plethora of the “newest, hottest products, processes, and gadgets..! Stay focused on your core services; find marketing strategies that work, and stick to them… while, yes, still learning new effective strategies, but ONLY from reliable sources, and only one at a time! (Do NOT spend your $s on dozens of programs that you never touch!)
- Market to MANY vs. Marketing to One Person at a Time!
Successful coaches automate a large part of their marketing and know how to reach 100s – or potentially 1000s of prospects every month (and some, achieve this daily).
✔ Have a powerful Free Value-Loaded Offer (a “freebie”) on your website,
✔ Automate the delivery of your free content (eCourse, video course, checklist, etc.)
✔ Once you deliver your free content, set up follow-up images, “coaching” your subscribers to implement your content (building relationship – building the know, like, and trust factors)
✔ After you deliver great value – starting in your 3rd or 4th message to your subscriber – mention your 1-on-1 coaching services.
REMEMBER! People do business with people they know, like, and trust. A free offer is the most effective way to achieve this “know, like, & trust” factor.
