Many coaches struggle to start their coaching career because they just aren’t sure where to start.

Here are six things that are sure to pay off in getting new life coaching business, whether you’re just starting your coaching career or are a veteran in the trade.
Six Steps for Launching Your Coaching Career with Your Life Coaching Business
#1: If you want to start a life coaching business or take your coaching career to the next level, you need to spend time developing your leads. Set aside 10 hours a week to work on getting new life coaching business. Coaching career education doesn’t count here. If you don’t have 10 hours, commit to what you can do and don’t let anything stop you from investing this time.
#2: How many free sessions have you run in your coaching career? Set a goal to do one hundred free sessions. After you do this you will transform as a coach and you will start seeing a big shift in the amount of life coaching business you see.
#3: Do some on-line research to learn some new coaching techniques or tools to grow your life coaching business. Do some research to help you decide which niche you will focus on for you life coaching career. Don’t wait! Get started now. Then put what you learn into practice.
#4: Immerse yourself in a good coaches training program and get the skills that will take your coaching career to the next level. Make sure you apply these new skills as quickly as you learn them. If you don’t have paying clients yet, find people who will commit to your coaching for free or for trade. I know a coach who traded coaching for car detailing while he was getting his life coaching business up and running.
#5: Get specific training on how to start or grow a life coaching business. Look for marketing, sales or public speaking training. Take your coaching career to the next level by learning how to enroll people from the front of the room or via teleseminars.
#6: Learn how to generate life coaching business with on-line marketing strategies. Be patient, because this method will take a few months to start generating clients. But once established, you can generate enough clients to provide some stability to your coaching career.
