10 Things Every Coach or Consultant Needs to Know to Succeed
What you'll learn

- An open mind and a willingness to learn
Are you a new coach or consultant who is just starting out in business?
Or, maybe you've been in business a while but you’re struggling to get clients.
In either case, this course is for you.
In fact, I believe so strongly in the content I share in this course I think it should be mandatory for every new coach and consultant.
There are so many things you simply don’t know and can’t anticipate when you go into business for yourself.
Things no one ever tells you
Things you simply overlook
Things you don’t think about
And all of those unknowns can make business frustrating, difficult, and frankly a real struggle.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
When you know what to expect and do, it changes everything.
Suddenly you're able to…
Be better prepared so you can succeed in your business.
Relax and enjoy your business more
Avoid many of the common mistakes (and the pain and frustration that goes along with learning the hard way)
Eliminate failures (I’ll be honest, you can’t totally eliminate all failure but you can sure minimize it!)
Save yourself a lot of frustration, pain, and heartache
Become successful in your business more quickly and easily
In this course I share:
What I learned after starting my own business, making mistakes, and learning the hard way.
The differences between working in a job and running your own business.
The common mistakes and misconceptions new coaches and consultants make and have.
All the things I wish someone had told me BEFORE I started my own coaching and consulting business.
I learned everything I teach in this course the hard way.
I’ve been in business on my own since 1998. I’ve started 8 different businesses. Three became successful 6-figure businesses relatively quickly (within the first year or so). The others, well let’s just say I learned some valuable lessons!
I was probably a lot like you when I started my first business. Full of ideas, passion, motivation and drive. But no experience running a business. I’ve learned so much that I feel an obligation to share it with those who are just starting out, or those who are struggling.
There's no reason you have to discover these 10 things the hard way.
Whether you’re thinking about becoming a coach or consultant, you’re just starting your business, or you’ve been in business for years and things aren’t going quite the way you’d hoped, I believe understanding the 10 things I share in this course will help you.
Consider this course your sneak peek into the future of what it takes to run a successful coaching or consulting business. Your opportunity to learn from someone who has been-there-done-that and is now sharing it with YOU!
Who this course is for:
- Established coaches and consultants who are not happy with their current business or level of success.
- New coaches and consultants who are just starting out and want to be prepared.
- People just considering starting a coaching or consulting business who want to know what to expect.
