Life coaching has changed A LOT in the last 20 years. But what I want to know is what happens next. To get answers, I wanted to talk to smart people with a pulse on what’s happening in the industry...and what better place to start than with coaching schools, since they’re actively shaping new and upcoming coaches! Today I’m joined by: Sherri Gerek …
 
No matter what level you’re at or what niche you’re in, you’ll make mistakes. It just means you’re human. And you can still run an amazing coaching business even when you make mistakes. All season on the Coach Pony podcast, Bobbi Palmer from Date Like a Grownup and I have taken trips down memory lane to share our biggest flops and what we learned a…
 
There are a frightening number of ways to make mistakes on social media. Today on the Coach Pony podcast, Bobbi Palmer from Date Like a Grownup joins me again to dish on where we’ve screwed up on social, so you don’t have to! We’ll take you back to a time before Instagram even existed let alone TikTok, (no, dinosaurs did not roam the earth) and tal…
 
If you want to have a business, you have to make sales. Otherwise, you’re just coaching people for free. If that’s your jam, cool! But if you’re here...then you probably want to make a living with your coaching. This is why Bobbi Palmer from Date Like a Grownup is here with me to talk about sales mistakes. This is a big one and there are a lot of w…
 
Ooh, shiny! Everyone gets distracted by something sparkly now and again. But shiny object syndrome can slow down your business...big time. Of course you want to chase that shiny new idea, but dividing your attention across too many projects and programs at once can lead to disaster. Whether it’s burning out after working umpteen hours a week trying…
 
Live events have their rewards: When an event goes well, you get the satisfaction of being hands-on and seeing people make progress in real time. Not to mention that attendees learn and make connections with your work (yay!) and each other! Everyone wins! But when a live event goes badly, those mistakes can be hugely detrimental to your business an…
 
Making mistakes with your website can cost you. It can cost you time, it can cost you peace of mind (oh the stress of redoing things!) and of course, it can cost you money. Whether you’re paying an agency to design and build your site or you’re DIY-ing it, having a site that doesn’t do what you need it to can hinder your business’s ability to grow.…
 
We’ve all had clients we regret. It’s almost a rite of passage for a coach (so yes, it’ll probably happen to you!). Maybe you saw the red flags from the beginning and ignored them because you really believed you could be the one to help them. Coaches want to help people! Or maybe it took a few sessions for you to realize that what they need isn’t w…
 
Investing in your business is a fact of life. It can help you learn, grow and be a better coach. But what if when you need advice, consulting, training or something else, you fork over an enormous amount of money only to have it not work out the way you wanted? OUCH. This season of the Coach Pony Podcast, it’s all about mistakes. I teamed up with B…
 
We all make mistakes in life. And as a coach, you’re going to make mistakes with your clients. You’re not perfect and your clients (usually) don’t expect you to be. But they will–consciously or not– take advantage of contract loopholes, poor enforcement, unclear terms and other not-so-fun ways to ask for services outside of what your intended agree…
 
Do you ever worry about making mistakes in your coaching business? Of course you do! Everyone makes mistakes. No matter what level you’re at– whether you hung up your shingle yesterday or you’ve been at this for years– mistakes are a normal part of moving your business forward. Welcome! And not only are they normal, but coaches in all niches, at al…
 
Writing a book is a great way to create some passive income while you also cement your coaching knowledge and life experience into one lower-cost, marketable item that you can sell for years to come. Books are great tools to help people get to know you and enter your coaching world, and build the trust that can ultimately turn them into a client. Y…
 
I have so many online course stories for you guys! My book, Zero to Passion, was my first real online DIY program, because I offered several different tiers of learning beyond just the book. (Fun fact: I still sell plenty of them today). But that’s a story for another time… Let’s get to the good stuff! In this episode, I'll share the inside story o…
 
There’s nothing like waking up to money deposited overnight in your bank account and knowing you’ve been helping people while you were sleeping, no? Online programs offer you that satisfaction and more. But as always, there are drawbacks too. In this episode we’ll be taking a much closer look at online DIY coaching programs, because who doesn’t wan…
 
Do you enjoy embarrassing stories? How about learning from my mistakes so you don’t have to? Then this is the episode for you! I’ve done several retreats now in my business and in hindsight, they were super fun. However, two of them started out as absolute disasters. So I want to talk about what happened and, more importantly, what I did to fix the…
 
A retreat can sound like an absolute no-brainer for you to do as a coach. Taking your business on a fabulous vacation? Yes, please. And they do have some fabulous pros. You get to do intense hands-on work with clients, some of whom will even become retreat regulars, which makes it easier to sell out your retreats over time. There’s group bonding an…
 
Our story today starts, like most of my stories, on my couch. In the last episode, we talked about the gritty details behind the group coaching business model. Today, I want to tell you the origin story of my very first group coaching program–one that eventually grew to over 500 people! Our story begins with another company. It’s true! Because besi…
 
I personally love group coaching. There’s something magical about working with a group.The community that grows in a session, the support and validation participants get from each other–these programs fuel me in a special way. And group coaching was how I first reached multiple six figures in my business and beyond seven figures now. Group coaching…
 
A private hotel suite, room service, a $5000 client… That definitely sounds way dirtier than I thought it would. But it’s part of the story of how I grew my business to six figures all those years ago. In the last episode, we talked about the gritty details behind the private coaching business model. Today, I’ll share the inside story of how I got …
 
Low overhead, high profit potential. Private coaching can sound like a dream. But is it your dream? In season two of the Coach Pony podcast, we’re exploring all of the different ways coaches can make money. And we’ll take a brutal look at the pros and cons and how much you can actually expect to make as a coach on each money path. If you’re debatin…
 
As a life coach, one big question you've got to answer right away is how will you make money? Should you coach privately, group coach, write a book, host a retreat or something else? Frankly, it's an important question because if you choose the wrong money path, you could waste time, energy and money. For instance, you don't want to spend months tr…
 
Specificity is everything. Knowing who your client is inside and out connects you with the right people. The ones who you know you can really help. The ones you’re excited to work with. The ones who will tell their friends about how you’re a total game changer. It’s more than demographics. It’s knowing their pain points, their worries, their fears …
 
Know your power. Know your worth. When you’re first starting out, it feels amazing to get paid at all, but amazing can turn into agonizing when you’re taking on the wrong clients just to get paid. Your worth isn’t just about the number of clients you have or the size of your bank account, it’s about making sure you have the right clients for you. A…
 
We became entrepreneurs so that we can do the work that we love. If you're going to have a crappy job and be miserable, have a regular old jobby job! There is no reason that you have to build a business model that makes you miserable. A lot of people want to get out of doing client work because it’s a model that they don’t love or they have just go…
 
How did Jodi Flynn land her first paid coaching client? Networking, networking, networking. This can apply to any business but especially when you’re coaching in the corporate executive realm, it's all about relationships. Getting clients is all about who you know and being brave enough to put yourself out there. You have to get in front of potenti…
 
It can be hard to imagine that someone would pay you money to help them. It's not just the lack of confidence in making a living. It can also be about the lack of confidence in really being able to help people. In the beginning, getting over your questions of self-worth and imposter complex can be the hardest part. And being able to push through an…
 
You don’t have to build the perfect sales funnel to have a thriving business. You don’t have to have the perfect lead magnet or the perfect email automation behind it. It’s not necessary to schedule another amazing photoshoot or to build an immaculate sales page. What makes your business work is keeping things simple. A clear offer and good relatio…
 
Your story matters. It’s powerful. And one of the keys to a successful coaching business is focusing on and developing your personal story so that you can share it with the world.
