Do you want a hobby or a business?

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” 😉

It’s chaotic. It meanders all over the place, without any clear direction.

I didn’t know it at the time, but back then I didn’t have a business. I had a hobby.

The difference between a hobby and a real business is whether you have a plan and are following that plan to grow to the size you want.

With a hobby, you’re trying things here and there. You don’t have a clear plan or idea for how to get anywhere.

Trying something once. It doesn’t work immediately. So you scrap it.

Spending a whole lotta time on things that don’t get you clients. Or that don’t help your clients get results.

A business, on the other hand, moves in one direction.

It looks more like this…

It’s not a perfectly straight line. There are ups and downs.

But it’s moving in one direction. It’s steady imperfect progress towards a goal.

It’s trying something. Tweaking it if it didn’t work. And trying it again, improving little by little.

Now look, there’s nothing wrong with coaching as a hobby, if that’s what you want.

But I’m guessing if you’ve put serious time and money into being a coach…

This is more than a hobby to you.

So, my question for you is…

Do you want a hobby or a business?

There’s no right or wrong answer.

It’s about getting clear on what you want.

Maybe you’ve got a job and are just investigating whether coaching is something you want to do part-time. Then it absolutely makes sense to meander and explore what works or what doesn’t. Nothing wrong with that.

But if you know that you want to make coaching your full focus…

You main source of income…

Your gateway to having financial freedom, time freedom…

Your way to take care of your family and impact a lot of people’s lives…

And if you want this year to be your best year in business ever…

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

Last week I had a Coach Action Plan with a gal who was worried she didn’t have enough to say to create content throughout the year. She was putting a ton of pressure on herself to come up with brand new content every single time. Because she felt if she didn’t have something new to say every
