The secret of getting ahead is getting started ~ Mark Twain
Why work with me, a business and sales coach? If you've attended coaching school, like I did, you know they don't spend that much time in teaching you how to actually build a business around your coaching practice. Even business degree programs at colleges (yup, I got one of those too) are designed to create workers for companies and corporations, not help new business owners who are trying to start, grow and market their products and services.
When I first got certified in 2006 I was lucky because I got free referrals from the coaching organization and I was the only person affiliated with them in all of San Diego County. However, I noticed that I had a difficult time converting my prospective clients into paying clients. (Sound familiar?) I somehow managed it until the financial crisis happened. That was about the same time I enrolled in sales training. My business wasn't impacted immediately until the coaching organization decided to begin charging for referral. Uh oh! At that time, I still wasn't that good at selling, I had done no marketing because I relied 100% on their referral system (big mistake), and I had no process or systems in place (another big mistake). Several months went by without calls, emails or inquiries for my services. It was the most depressing, scary, humbling and confidence-busting time.
Now that I am out on the other end of that challenging period, I am re-energized and refocused. I am more aligned with my own purpose and interests in helping people fulfill their dreams to own a business and live their lives on their own terms. Why should you struggle like I did? Why try to figure it all out on your own by trying to stitch together information from books and YouTube when you can work with someone who has already "been there and done that" and can get you there faster? Here are a few of the benefits of working with me:
- Stop feeling overwhelmed and unsure of where to begin.
- Short-cut your way to building a business that is right for you with guidance from someone who already has real life experience.
- Get a written plan to launch and grow your business that is specific to you and your situation.
- Become clearer on your gifts and purpose so you know what you want to do as a business.
- Become comfortable and natural selling without feeling or sounding salesy or inauthentic.
