You started coaching because you love helping people and you want to make a big impact in the world.
And you’ve now realized that coaching is not just a powerful tool for change, but that a coaching business is just like any other service-based business that requires your attention.
This sets the stage for the common questions business coaches get from prospective coaching clients.
Business Coaching Questions Most Clients Ask
Where can I get coaching clients now?
How much should I charge for life coaching?
How much does a life coach make?
How do I have a sales conversation and discuss my prices without feeling sleazy or icky?
How do I confidently talk about my coaching and prices with prospective clients?
How do I find my niche?
How do I create an authentic brand and marketing message?
How do I enroll clients into my coaching programs?
How do I create coaching packages and programs?
How do I market my coaching business?
How do I create a Signature Coaching System?
How do I stop feeling like a fraud?
How do I raise my coaching fees?
How do I find a business coach?
The Real Problem With Your Coaching Business May Not Be What You Think
These are all great questions when you’re running any kind of service-based business. But for most coaches and women entrepreneurs, it’s not necessarily about lack of action. Not attracting high paying ideal coaching clients or having trouble finding a niche or marketing your business may be more about your money mindset than about where to network.
How Your Money Mindset and Money Blocks May Be Sabotaging Your Coaching Business
All the tools, coach training and certification courses, strategies, stalking your competitor’s websites, drooling over fancy coaching Instagram pages, templates, hacks, how to blog posts and google searches will not help you build a successful coaching business if you are swimming in a sea of money blocks.
Maybe mindset is not the first thing that you think about when it comes to why your business is stalled, and you’re asking yourself, “what is money mindset?” or “what are money blocks?”
Money blocks are the limiting beliefs in the way of you creating a viable business that lights you up, empowers you to work in your zone of genius and help the hundreds or thousands of people you’ve committed to serving – the people who are still waiting for you to get your act together so that you can serve them and make an impact.
Money blocks include disempowering money stories like “I cannot afford this,” limiting beliefs about money that you may have learned from your family or adopted along the way, negative self-talk and subconscious self-sabotaging behaviors that may keep you stuck.
Because business and life success involve 99% mindset and only 1% tools and strategies, how much you know and can do is only relevant if you choose to become the entrepreneur who can take the action or use what she knows to do the thing she says she wants to do.
A simplistic answer will state that a Money Mindset is (1) your relationship your yourself; (2) your relationship to your self-worth and value; and (3) your relationship with money.
These three relationships with yourself set the stage for (1) your business vision; (2) your niche and the type of clients you will attract; (3) the Price you will charge; (4) how you relate to sales and marketing; (5) whether you decide to package your services or trade hours for dollars; and (6) your ability to create a sustainable coaching business.
Telling yourself, “I’m not Enough,” or
complaining that you make great money, but can never seem to keep enough of it around, or
worrying that you can’t charge $3,000 for your coaching package, or
thinking you have to work really, really hard to make six figures because your parents worked hard all the time and you never saw them just replays disempowering money stories and creates more money blocks in your life and business.
