Your niche is saturated (and why you don’t need to worry about it)

I’ve had a few clients worry about choosing a niche that is too saturated.

And if they’re worried about it, I’m guessing you might be too.

That there are too many coaches doing the same thing.

And I get it.

I had the same worry when I decided to focus on helping coaches.

I mean, c’mon, the Coaches Helping Coaches niche feels SATURATED.

And guess what?

Pretty much every niche feels saturated.

That’s just the way it is.

The good news is that there are over 329 million people in the United States alone (I looked it up).

How many of those 329 million people do you need to have a thriving coaching practice at any one time?

10, 15, 20, maybe?

Now, I know you may be thinking…

“Well, a lot of those will be kids or the elderly who wouldn’t want or need my coaching”

I also looked that up.

For any given age and gender, the average is about .62% of the population.

So even if you decided to only work with 40-year old females, that’s over 2 million people.

329,000,000 * .062 = 2,039,800

(just in case you like math)

Do you think that you could attract twenty 40-year-old females from over 2 million?

I think you could.

Now, you have a lot of things to focus on when growing your coaching business.

Things like…

  • Narrowing down your niche
  • Understanding your ideal community intimately
  • Developing a coaching methodology built around your genius zone
  • Creating ways to attract your ideal clients to you
  • etc.

Worrying that you’re in a saturated market shouldn’t be one of them.

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
