  • No experience needed. This is helpful for all coaches, whether you are just starting out or an experienced coach wanting to get grow their client base.


One of the most common questions newly certified coaches have is: How do I get clients?

Connecting with your audience and converting them to paying clients isn't as simple as a step-by-step, one size fits all process. (If it was everyone would be doing it!) Just as each coach is unique, so is each journey towards creating a thriving coaching business.

However, there are several pitfalls that many new coaches make in this process that can create frustration and cost them a lot of time, effort, and money. This course outlines 5 of these common mistakes and what you can do instead.

Some of these tips are counter to what you might expect — which is why many new coaches fall into the trap exerting a lot of effort ineffectively, struggling to find clients and get their offering or brand just right without making sure they've followed these guidelines first.

If you are a new coach looking to build your client base, or an established coach seeking out new clients, this very short course will get you off on the right foot. The course also includes a recording of a live coach business mentoring session where we talk about how to create and price your coaching offering, as well as how to start getting paying clients for it.

  • Life or business coaches wanting to get more coaching clients
