5 Reasons No-One Is Buying Your Coaching Package.

5 Reasons No-One Is Buying Your Coaching Package.

You completed your coaching certification training and despite some fear around coaching actual PAYING clients you were keen to start making money from your passion and excited to begin helping your dream clients live their best life. And then came the stunning realisation that getting those paying clients was NOT as simple as your trainers had told you it would be, from the moment you opened the (real or metaphorical) doors it’s been a struggle and you now feel like a failure…in fact you’re so OVER putting on a brave face and faking success that you’re just about to throw in the towel. Sound like you? If so I’m not surprised because this experience is far more common than you’d expect; it was also MY experience for far too long so I know just how soul destroying it is to be in that place. Before you throw in the towel I have some good news for you, there IS a way to turn it around, but before we get to that I want you to remember a few important things. You Began Your Coaching Certification For A Reason. I’ve never come across a coach who decided on a whim that coaching was a good business idea; the coaches I speak with week after week are women who had a life experience, learned a shitload, then decided they wanted to help other women (or whatever market it is you’re in) get to where they are, on the other side of that experience and better for it. There’s a good chance that once you reached the other side you looked back...
How I built a multi 6 figure coaching business (in under 10 months) for less than $1,000

How I built a multi 6 figure coaching business (in under 10 months) for less than $1,000

The Art Of Kicking Ass Elegantly went nuts right off the bat, it was the much coveted “overnight success story”, preceded  of course by 20 years of “priming” myself (code for hustling my ass off) for this kind of success. The Art of Kicking Ass Elegantly was a culmination of experiences, circumstances and timing.  Its launch was the perfect storm of good marketing, the right message and the high demand for something truly different and to be honest I’m still pinching myself today that this brand of mine has experienced the success it has and that The kicking Ass Elegantly movement is now a thing (!!!!) with a dedicated tribe of fabulous women who make my heart sing. TAOKAE began as my 3rd book and very quickly morphed into a new brand that grabbed the attention of my market at warp speed and when I launched with my 1 Day Let’s Do Lunch events in January 2015 it became clear I had a winner on my hands. I began my first $25k Mastermind Program with 7 women on the program. I launched again mid-year and have 6 participant’s on that program. To finish off the year I launched my Kickass Academy Online (the online version of my live mastermind program) and netted $50k for my efforts. This my friends, is the type of success I’d been working towards for a very long time, I’d finally nailed it, I’d finally found my place in the entrepreneurial world. I’m a risk taker at heart but I don’t handle financial stress well, never have, and it’s likely I never will. I’d been a...
Why it took me over a decade to make any money from coaching.

Why it took me over a decade to make any money from coaching.

If you’re fed up with feeling like a failure in your coaching business then PLEASE read on, you’re about to feel a whole lot better as I share with you why it took me over a decade to make any decent money from coaching. I began my coaching career filled with optimism. I gained my coaching certification back in the year 2000 and went hell for leather making my mark on the coaching world. I became Regional Manager for Results Coaching Systems, I spoke at their events (and my own), became head of way too many business networking groups, attended course after course and even had a regular column in the local newspaper where I went all Tony Robins on the local peeps. I hustled my little ass off for a very long time. I built a respectable profile and was seen to be “successful”. Hell I LOOKED successful from every angle. Lesson No.1: Despite not experiencing any real financial success this approach did put me on the map and forced me to grow and expand rapidly as a coach and this set the tone for my career that carries through even today. But I never made any real money. Sure I’d pick up regular clients and organisations would pay me to deliver a workshop here and there but my coaching income was precarious at best. Horrendous at worst. Thankfully I always had my Martial Arts & Fitness businesses to save my ass and time after time after I had to resort back to these skills even though my desire was to coach. I was a good coach, way better...
