How do you write a great life coaching business plan? There are a billion resources detailing how to write goals or take your coaching career to the next level, most of which are fine, but what you really need is to give yourself time to focus on your life coaching business plan. If you are serious about making 2010 a turning point in your coaching career, here a few tips that will help make a difference no matter what strategy you choose.
You Need 24 Hours Dedicated to Working on Your 2010 Life Coaching Business Plan
The most important life coaching business plan tip is to give yourself a full day to plan. Not just an hour. Not even half a day. Smaller time blocks can be easily wiped off the face of the planet with a small emergency. An afternoon can also be easily whittled down to a half hour of scattered thoughts. That’s not going to give you a quality future for your coaching career. Give yourself 24 hours.
Create Your Life Coaching Business Plan in a Different Environment Away From the Usual Distractions
The other key aspect to making the most out of your life coaching business plan time is to get away from your usual environment. Get away from your usual distractions and conversations. Creating a powerful life coaching business plan that is powerful enough to take your coaching career to the next level is going to take focus. Daily distractions like the internet and the phone take away from your focus; and that’s power that is lost.
In your usual environment you think about how you usually think. If you want to take your coaching career to the next level, the same thinking that got you where you are will not get you to the next level. If you create your 2010 life coaching business plan in your home or usual workplace, you’ll tend to repeat what happened in 2009. So get yourself to a different place. Find a nice area outside your usual town, even if it’s only a half hour away. Find a place to stay the night. Maybe drive to a bed and breakfast or campground. Go to sleep somewhere else and when you wake up start your day.
If You Give Yourself 24 Hours and Distance From the Norm 2010 Can be the Best Year of Your Coaching Career
You’ll be amazed at the power that getting some distance from all the things that usually stop you can have on developing a powerful life coaching business plan. Give yourself this gift. Set yourself up to make powerful changes in your coaching career by creating an optimal planning environment. And have a very happy new year!

Interesting post thanks. What would you suggest are key items to be included in the business plan? Aly
Jeffrey T. Sooey says
key elements would be:
1. goals (results you want to achieve)
2. strategies (ways you think you can achieve the goals)
3. stop doing goals (things you need to delegate, or stop spending time/energy on in order to make room for what’s now more important)
4. priorities (a way of ranking high, medium, and low importance activities, etc.)
5. brainstorming (creative and list-oriented idea generation for all of the above)
There are lots of steps to take during that day, but don’t worry as much about WHAT to do as much as just DOING IT.
An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been conducting a little
homework on this. And he in fact bought me lunch because I stumbled upon it for him…
lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time
