Setting Intentions with the New Moon

Setting Intentions with the New Moon

If you follow the Moon Cycles, you know that tonight is a New Moon.  

If you don't know what I'm talking about, don't worry. A few years ago, when I started coaching and then joined my mastermind, Inner Glow Circle, I had no idea, either.  

In the last couple of years, I have met and worked with many mentors and coaches who were into what some people call "The Woo Woo." What does that consist of? Following the Full and New Moons, using tarot and oracle cards, crystals crystals crystals, trusting the Universe, using mantras and empowering beliefs...just to start.

Should I Have My Prices On My Website?

You should already know my answer: Do what feels right for YOU!


Who said this coaching thing is an exact science, anyway? 

This really is a business decision that is up to YOU. Put them on your website and see how that feels and what the response is. 

Then, if you want to experiment, take them off and see what happens then.

Building Social Proof Through Testimonials

Testimonials are one way to powerfully show your audience the results your clients have created for themselves through working with you!

After you've completed with a client, asking for a testimonial is a great way to hear about what they've taken away from your time together, as well as a way to show Return On Investment (ROI) for Life Coaching to prospective clients.

What Does 'Visibility' on Social Media Mean, Anyway?

I'm sure you're hearing this coaching buzzword all over the place.

VISIBILITY

This is YOU, showing up online consistently and in a powerful way. 

If you're running an online business, you need to be visible so your people can find you and fall in love with you. If you're not showing up online consistently and in alignment with your message and your purpose, you're going to be struggling in your business.

How to Leverage Your Time with Group Coaching Programs

While one-on-one coaching might seem to be the holy grail of business, life, the truth is, many people actually prefer a group program.

With one-on-one coaching, it’s just you and your coach. The focus is all on your business, what you did (or did not) accomplish in the last week or month, and how you can improve.

In other words, it’s a bit of a vacuum.

How To Tier Your Coaching Packages So More People Can Invest In Your Services

"I can't afford it."

We've all been there.

You had an amazing Discovery Call or Consultation, and you're really connecting with the other person on the line.  You're positive it's a sure thing. 

You get to the end of the conversation, where you share with them the length of the program, all of the goodies and what they'll receive, possible results, and...the cost of the program.

Sharing Your Story on Social Media

Sharing Your Story on Social Media

One thing I'm *really* good at is spilling my guts on social media. It's maybe why you're even here in the first place. Because you saw something I wrote and it really stood out for you, and you wanted to know more.  

But don't think it's always been this way. What you see now is from YEARS of writing, coaching, journaling and sharing my story in different ways, which eventually led me to live a pretty (ok very) public life.  

I have had to work through so many stories I was telling myself...

Sales Funnels: How to Create a Business Model That Works

For an online coach + business owner, a sales funnel is probably the most important marketing tool you have. And yet many entrepreneurs (coaches, digital nomads, etc.) - both new and established - have no clear understanding of what a funnel is or how this business tool works.
 
As you can imagine, failing to fully understand this critical part of your business means fewer sales, lower profits, and ultimately, an unstable business.

Does 'networking' and 'marketing' turn you off?

When you think of the words 'networking' and 'marketing', what comes to mind?

Do you think businessmen in suits, handing their cards out, trying to make the sale?  

Or do you think about connecting with people on a deeper level, making friends and having fun conversations?

Feel the Fear + Do It Anyway

FEARLESS.

Do you hate that word as much as I do?

It causes such a visceral reaction within me.  Like, makes my body really warm and tingly, but not in a good way. 

I am NOT fearless.  I feel alllll the fear when I'm making big decisions.

Productivity Tools for Coaches

If you have a business with an online component, chances are you're spending a lot of time in front of the computer.  The internet is an amazing thing, as it has the ability to both simultaneously grow your business and wipe out hours of your day.  

If you don't have the proper tools in place, you'll spend more time going back and forth trying to make appointments and post content than you will talking to and connecting with your ideal client.

My Top 5 Tips to Creating a Killer Social Media Presence So You Can Attract Dream Clients You Want to be BFF's With!!

1. All of your social media platforms should be consistent and streamlined so you can build a strong + iconic brand.
  

Twitter, InstagramPinterestFacebook, Periscope, LinkedInGoogle+.  All of these accounts should either have your name, or some variation of it, or the name of your company, as your handle.  

If for some reason your name is not available, sometimes adding a middle initial is an option.  (This is also a good way to help you figure out a company name if you don't want to use your personal name.  If all of the social media handles are taken, maybe think about a different name for your company.)

If You Don't Create the Space You Need in Your Life, the Universe Will Do It For You

When you're a coach, YOU are your business. 
 

When I was creating my business, one thing I deeply desired was to get paid to work on myself.  I wanted a career where I could read self-help books, journal, do my own personal development work, and share my insights.  

I desired a career where I was held accountable for a healthy lifestyle, where people looked to me for guidance and support.

Finding My Niche

As a Life + Marketing Coach who helps new entrepreneurs build businesses that feel authentic + aligned with their higher purpose, one thing I've noticed that holds many new coaches back is the inability to decide on a niche.  

When you're first starting out as a coach, it's important to know who you want to serve and who your ideal client is so you can gear your messaging and content towards the people that light you up.

Let's Stop Playing the Bullshit 'What If' Game

I just wrapped up my last weekend working in a restaurant, dare I say it, FOREVER.

I am feeling ALL the feels right now.  Sheer excitement.  Total passion for my business and what I'm about to create.  Sadness that I'm leaving a place that has been my home-away-from-home for the last 2.5 years, where I've made friends and created my Chosen Family.  Panic and dread of the unknown.
