Over the years I have had aspiring freelancers, web designers, professional speakers, copywriters and consultants all reach out to me. They come across my site or may even know me personally. They are excited and eager to start a new career or become a freelancer or professional speaker. Some people simply have a few questions and others are looking for a lot more help.
I totally appreciate the eagerness of these individuals and I remember my own enthusiasm when I was first starting out and my desire to learn from my peers that were out there doing it. However, something I learned rather quickly is that as much as I would love to help everyone I simply can’t. As a small business owner of 2 different businesses, I have far more tasks to do than hours in the day to do them. I also quickly realized that not all students were equally serious about learning or putting forth the effort to change their course.
At the same time, I didn’t want to turn people away that were truly serious about moving in a new direction. That is why I created my coaching service to help those people that are serious about their career and willing to invest in their education. I provide a couple of coaching options:
From time to time I will put together a group coaching session around a topic area. It might be how to launch a copywriting business or booking yourself out as a professional speaker. I don’t have a set schedule for these group sessions, but if you join my email list you will begin receiving my email newsletter and will be notified of future training opportunities.
If you are part of a group of individuals that needs help in a specific area I could set up a private group coaching class. I can customize the class to your group and exactly what you want to learn. The minimum number would be (5) for a private group training.
If you don’t want to wait for a group coaching class to open and would like one on one help I do offer individual and private coaching sessions. The initial coaching session is a minimum of 5 hours so I have some actual time to explore what you want to accomplish and the best way to put a plan in place to help you reach your full potential. Once we get started you would need to book a minimum of 5-hour blocks of time so that I can ensure that I have time to provide you real value for your investment. I simply can’t do much with an hour here or there except answer basic questions, which isn’t helpful to you and not a good use of my time.
I will coach on any topic that I personally practice and feel I can deliver good value to you on. If I am not familiar with a topic or not sure how I could coach you on how to do it I will most likely turn down your request for coaching. It is important to me that I always supply value for your investment. Here are some of the topics I have been asked to teach or coach on:
These are simply some of the requests I have had over the years. I will provide coaching on anything I am competent to teach and will always tailor my coaching to your needs. Before we start a coaching session, I will always ask you to clearly articulate your goals and what you hope to accomplish. If I feel I can help we will write those goals down and work towards them. Once we are finished I will ask you to evaluate your progress and if you are satisfied with the progress you made.
If I don’t think I can help you I will not take a coaching assignment. I also expect you to end a coaching engagement that is not meeting your goals as well. Successful business coaching depends on clearly defined goals upfront and both parties being open and honest with each other and putting forward the effort to succeed.
If you are interested in booking a private coaching session please call me today to discuss your goals and let’s get started on helping you build a new future.
