GETTING STARTED IN PERSONAL AND EXECUTIVE COACHING
 

Is your coaching practice completely full?

Are you getting more referrals than you can really handle?

Do you know exactly when, where and how to find 10 new clients in the next 6 months?

Are you making more money than you thought possible in your first years of coaching?

 


 

If you're like the more than 50% of coaches out there with less than 10 paying clients and making less than $20,000 a year then you absolutely need this book. Before we go any further, let me tell you what this book is NOT about:

 
bullet

It’s not about a model of coaching or academic theories

bullet

It’s not about strategies that only sound good on paper but haven't actually been tried in real life

bullet

It’s definitely not about fluff, hype, or some ambiguous promise of “take these 5 steps and you'll have a full practice in 90 days”

INSTEAD, HERE’S WHAT YOU'LL FIND IN THIS BOOK:

 
bullet

Straightforward answers to serious questions about how to build, maintain, and sustain a thriving coaching practice

bullet

Hundreds of proven techniques and strategies for finding and landing new business

bullet

Real world illustrations from top coaches all across the country about their secrets to success

bullet

11 Step-by-step strategies for rapidly finding your first 10 paying clients

bullet

Exactly what separates financially unsuccessful coaches from financially successful coaches

bullet

Precisely how much money you will need to launch your coaching business if you're just starting out

bullet

The 10 biggest pitfalls new coaches fall into and how to avoid them

bullet

Loads of practical Action Steps you can take to quickly apply these ideas and techniques

bullet

The actual “nuts-and-bolts” of starting and operating a small coaching business

bullet

What new coaches can do to significantly increase their chances of success

bullet

The 15 largest markets for coaching you can tap into right now

The ideas, strategies, techniques, and insights in this book in a collection based on:

 
bullet

Research I conducted with over 300 coaches nationwide

bullet

One-on-one interviews with top coaches in the field about their secrets to success

bullet

My personal experiences building a thriving executive and business coaching practice in Chicago

bullet

And my success in helping many coaches, consultants, and other small business owners effectively market their services and obtain a higher return on investment from their marketing dollars.

 

WHO IS THIS BOOK FOR?

I wrote this book for four groups of people:
 
bullet

New Coaches just starting out who are serious about building a thriving coaching practice and are actively looking for ways to successfully accomplish this

bullet

Experienced Coaches who know how tough it is to find new clients and are desperate for more effective ways to market and sell their services and aren’t afraid to try new things

bullet

Personal Coaches, Executive, and Business Coaches who want to discover how to expand their services into new markets and rapidly gain a competitive advantage in the field

bullet

Consultants, Psychologists, Therapists, and Professional Speakers who want to add coaching to their repertoire of services, but don’t know the best way to do it and don’t have a lot of time for a long learning curve

If you don’t fit one of these four categories or you're not really serious about creating a dynamic, successful coaching practice, you will probably find this book a complete waste of your time and I suggest you would be better off not buying this book because even if you read it, the hard-hitting, real-world strategies and illustrations won't be of much use to you.

However, if you do fall into one of those four categories and you are serious about building your business then I believe there are no better, more comprehensive books available to help you achieve your goal. A rather bold statement? You bet, but it’s true.

WHY SHOULD YOU READ THIS BOOK?

Here are some little known facts about new coaches:
bullet

73% of all coaches make less than $10,000 in their first year

bullet

Only 60% of all 2nd year coaches have managed to find 10 paying clients

bullet

Less than 11% of all coaches make more than $50,000 by their second year in practice

The news doesn’t get much better when talking about coaches in general:
bullet

The average coach charges $160 a hour for their services but 53% of them make less than $20,000 a year

bullet

30% of all coaches are still not able to find 10 paying clients

bullet

Only 9% of coaches make more than $100,000 a year doing coaching

HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE ON WHY SHOULD YOU READ THIS BOOK —many people are starting out in the field of coaching, spending thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours undergoing coach certification training, launching new ventures, with visions of making a lot of money, doing what they love to do, but are quickly confronted by the cold reality of not being able to find new clients or even make a reasonable living.

I'm seeing a growing trend of good people leaving the coaching field because of unmet expectations—based on a false pretense and fueled by unrealistic stories of select people becoming financially successful in a few short months.

Many coaches are desperate for someone to show them what really works—not based just on their own personal theories about how things should work—but based on real world research about what is working right now and what the top coaches in the field are doing to be successful.

YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK IF:

 
bullet

You're committed to your building your coaching business

bullet

You recognize it will take all of your time, energy, and resources to make it long-term success

bullet

You're looking for solid answers to serious marketing and sales questions

That’s exactly what you will get in this book. I promise.

Here is the premise of this book:

At its core, professional coaching is no different from any other small business.
 

To be successful you must do the things that successful small business owners do:
 

bullet

implement a strong marketing plan

bullet

use solid sales skills

bullet

understand the fundamentals of operating a company

bullet

keep track of your financial statements

If you want to become a successful coach you must understand and apply the principles, strategies, and techniques talked about in this book.

“Professional coaching is no different from any other small business. To be successful in coaching, you must become successful at running a small business.”
