Are you building assets?

I'd like to talk to you today about the idea of building assets in your business.

Assets are things that you do once but can pay off for years to come.

The trick to making something an asset is to think in terms of making it 'evergreen.'

Something that is evergreen is just as relevant 5 years from now as it is today.

For example, most of my blog posts I would consider evergreen, and therefore, an asset.

Coaches could stumble across my blog in 2025 and most of the articles would be useful to them.

And, you'll notice, that I don't put the dates on my blog posts.

No reason to if they're evergreen.

The cool thing is that you can build assets into every part of your business.

Here are some examples:


Pieces of content (podcasts, videos, blog posts). You can link to these pieces of content from social media, Facebook Ads, etc.

Opt-in sequences to freebie giveaways. You could eventually have several of these on your site and link out to them all over social media.

Social media posts. You could use an app that lets you repost your social media in the future. Eventually you'll build a huge library of social media posts that keep working for you.

Courses. Create once, sell over and over.

Books. These could be published or eBooks that you sell online.

Signature Talk. The outline of your coaching methodology can be the foundation of a signature talk. You can do everything from give the highlights in a quick, 10-minute talk, a 45-minute webinar, an hour long talk at someone else's event, or even your own multi-day event.


An enrollment conversation that you refine every time you meet with someone. One that keeps getting higher and higher conversion rates. Eventually, perhaps, one that you can teach to a team member so that you can focus on other things in your business.


These include things like templates, checklists, and processes for tasks you do over and over. For example, if you write an email to a potential client, you could turn it into a template for future use. 

As you move forward in your business, you'll want to keep the idea of building assets in the back of your mind. With any new thing that you create — blog post, email, whatever — be asking whether it can be turned into an asset.

It will serve you well down the road.

With love & joy,

Sometimes when I talk to coaches, they tell me they’re trying to grow their coaching business.But then when we dig into what they’re doing on a weekly basis…It becomes clear that what they’re really doing is creating an expensive hobby for themselves.It usually looks something like this… (based on my first few years in “business”

Do you want a hobby or a business?

Several years ago, I signed up for a course on selling from a coach who promised we could increase our conversion rates by 50%. That would be amazing if it were true. But it wasn’t.At least for me. About every 10 minutes in the course, I thought, “There’s NO WAY I’m doing that.”Her approach was hard selling at

How do you want to sell?

Recently I set the record straight that growing a business can be simple, but not always easy. And like many things that are difficult, it’s worth it. Because on the other side of this challenge is a more confident and more capable you. And a life where you make good money doing meaningful work that you love. Now to get there,

Tired of selling yourself as a coach?

Yesterday a gal on Instagram sent me a DM after she’d read one of my posts… “What the heck is a coaching framework?” Great question! If you’ve been around for awhile, you’ve probably heard me mention how important it is to have your own proprietary, unique to you coaching framework. But… what exactly is it? Simply put, a Coaching Framework

What the heck is a coaching framework?

A few days ago, I was talking with a friend who’s been struggling to find new clients. She’s a very smart and accomplished woman. She’d led a very successful career working her way up the ladder in a well-known Fortune 500 company. And then she left her corporate career to go off on her own and start
