Here’s what I’d do if I was running your business…

Last Friday, my son and I hopped on Zoom for our mid-year check-in.

As I started discussing all the things I had planned for the second half of 2022, I started feeling completely overwhelmed.

And not excited.

And seriously burned out.

And after having a mini-meltdown and getting all the things I’ve been thinking and feeling off my chest, my son said…

"Want to know what I'd do if I was running your business?"

I perked up. "Of course!"

“Look, I would go all in on ONE thing. You're feeling overwhelmed because you're trying to do too much.

“Here's the thing: I know you love your current clients. You're always telling me about their wins with the biggest smile. So if it was my business, I would focus on finding more coaches like them who are just as committed to being successful. Forget creating more courses for now. Just focus on coaching awesome clients."

And as soon as he said it, it was like a weight lifted.

I didn't need to do all the things.

I didn't need to stick to my plan of launching something new every month and creating a bunch of new workshops.

Let me tell you, I felt such a sense of relief and joy.

See, while I love creating courses and teaching workshops…

My favorite part of my business is working one-on-one with women who want to turn their lifetime of experience into a successful coaching practice.

And there's no one version of success. Sometimes success is a six-figure business. Sometimes it’s replacing your current income. And sometimes it’s a small part-time practice to supplement whatever else you’re doing.

And so after that conversation with my son I took some time to really think about what that could look like.

“How could I set up my coaching program so that my clients get their most desired result as fast as possible?”

(this is a great question to continuously ask yourself as a coach)

And the answer was pretty simple.

Over just six months I can take coaches from building the rock-solid foundations they need to be successful, all the way to to mastering what I call the "connect, convert, and coach loop."

With the goal, of course, that they have their ideal number of clients and a solid system in place to attract new clients.

And how to do it all so it soon feels like second nature. Because they're using their unique strengths and genius.

If you're interested, it all starts with a Coach Action Plan — a private 45-minute call with me where you get personalized guidance on what you should be focusing on in your business right now.

And at the end of the call, if we feel it’s a good fit, we can talk about what it would look like to continue working together to help you grow your 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”

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
