    I think that offering free services first would be a good idea for a new life coach. Once some confidence is built than working our way into charging for our services would be a good idea.

    This is an excellent article, Dana! I am a coach and mentor in the network marketing field, and it’s amazing how much of this is covered in what I do, and has been done for me by my mentors. I like the way you’ve broadened the field and shown how this can be done in so many other areas.

    Thanks for sharing!
