As the founder of Life Mastery Institute, my goal is to provide heart-centered people with the best training possible to help them make the impact and difference they want in the world.
But before I dive in, I feel I should tell you that the truth is, not just new coaches make these mistakes.
Sometimes coaches who have been at it for years are making these exact mistakes, and they just don’t realize it. And so consequently, they aren’t seeing the kind of success they imagined when they started on this career path.
So let’s make sure you know how to avoid these 3 mistakes that new coaches make!
MISTAKE #1 – Not Delivering Transformation to Your Clients
Some coaches have good ideas and advice, but if your coaching doesn’t help your client achieve what they want most (like if they don’t manifest their dream), then they will seek out someone who can truly help them in the long run.
Real results are what coaching clients want and are willing to invest in. They want to have a life they love living, and to achieve the goals they set. And they are hoping that YOUR COACHING will lead them there. This is why at Life Mastery Institute we safeguard your success and provide you with transformational curriculum. It really works!
When you can deliver transformation, and people see results that amaze them, your business will skyrocket. And very often you won’t have to even do any marketing! Because those referrals start pouring in and next thing you know it your schedule is full of happy clients.
You even get invited to speaking engagements as word spreads about how good you are 🙂
MISTAKE #2 – Not Having A Proven Coaching Curriculum
This may sound basic, but it’s actually something to take pretty seriously. This mistake follows on the heels of the first mistake because you want your program to deliver lots of Ah-Ha moments to your clients that enrich their lives.
Change can be difficult for people. They butt up against their own paradigms, and as much as they want what’s on the other side, fear can often get the better of them. A proven program – and here’s the key: delivered over the correct period of time – gives your clients a boat to sail across the river of doubt, worry, and fear to actually reach that further shore where their goals are waiting.
MISTAKE #3 – Charging hourly for your services
This one comes as a surprise to most people. Don’t successful coaches charge hourly or by session?
The answer is no. If you charge hourly, you are stuck trading your time for money. So what happens when you run out of time? There are only so many hours in a day. But if you trade time for money, the only way to make more money is to work more hours.
Now, I don’t know about you, but to me, working harder and longer is not a happy life. A happy life is balanced with time off, time to enjoy family, and time for your own personal development.
So how do you create a coaching career where you don’t charge hourly for your services?
