It’s as Simple as Confidence And Value
The first step really is as simple as admitting you have a gift that is of value. Recognizing the worth of financial investment your skills could be to those in need of accountability.
The best part is you get to admit to yourself you have special skills. So admit it and start thinking of and referring to yourself as a Coach.
Just Get Started
I accepted that the skills and passion I had for helping people and knowing exactly how to do it was no different then any other service you pay for.
- Food service
- Personal trainers
- Gym memberships
- Home design
- Financial consulting
- Home repair
People pay a lot of money for the luxury of these services. There are many people who can perform these tasks and services for themselves and others who can’t and need to pay for an expert. Just as there are those who have skills in bettering their lives and those who are blinded with no clue as to where to begin. These are the kinds of people you will find sending you thank you notes for starting your coaching business. Once I realized this I was ready to start coaching.
I decided to get coaches training to further develop my knowledge. I found JTS advisors and began calling myself a coach while I was in my 30 day quick start study program. I just started coaching. I didn’t wait for the perfect moment I was starting my coaching business NOW.
Once I began to call myself coach and spread the word of my new business people wanted to be a part of it. I had friends and family interested in my service and wanting to know how I could help them. So I offered them a free session to try it out. At the end of each free session I let them know they were welcome to continue receiving the tools I had to offer them, I provided them with my pricing options and I signed each emailed session recap Coach Jeannine. I did this because I found value in the service I was offering and I trusted I had a gift.
The training helped me with discipline and organization but the first step will be the key to starting your coaching business. Honor your value, trust your instincts, value your service to human kind and start to call yourself a coach. By jump starting your coaching business with confidence, trust in yourself and consistent action you are ready to build a life of your own design.
