Want a thriving coaching business? Forget everything you learned in your coach certification

Massive time commitment.

Not too bad of a financial investment.

Quantum leap in my perspective on how to run a coaching business.

Forget almost everything you learned during your coach certification (International Coach Federation aligned or accredited training). Launching and running a coaching business is not as easy as building a website.  The Coach Master Toolkit (CMT) program forces you out of your comfort zone and challenges most of your beliefs about having a practice. At the same...

Why I Created Twitter Lists

2020 is the year in which I'm focusing on Exponential Value and Visibility.  A huge part of being able to achieve this is transforming my vision and theme into actionable and achievable goals.  Twitter is not the primary social media platform I use to find clients, but I still want to make sure I have a small presence there because a lot of tech entrepreneurs spend time there.  To increase my visibility, I need to create systems to be consistent. You can follow my journey to...

What My 2019 Week Looked Like

Since my full-time working for other company days, I have always tried to use themed days.  When I worked with a team, I would set aside specific days for different teams and administrative tasks.  My team knew I only had HR and people related conversations on Wednesday unless it was urgent. Themed days allow me to keep on top of all recurring parts of my business and different projects.  Over the last year, I have tried to do the same.  I plan to update my 2020 Week based...

I am always rethinking my approach to my work so I can be more productive and effective. I wanted to share the current tools I leverage to get things done.  My work is powered by five basic tools:

Mixmax – Time is money. As I have conversations for a living it is important that I have an easy way to allow my clients and potential clients to have access to my calendar. Mixmax also allows me to schedule personalized emails and keep track of who is opening and clicking on links in my...

2020 – My Year In Review Practice

3.png

I don’t believe in making generic new year resolutions. Instead, I prefer, to reflect on the past: my highs and lows, from which I extract lessons, rate my present state and then envision my future. I use this information to develop a yearly vision and theme.  My yearly review practice was inspired by a recording from a platform called The Foundation and I have been doing this consistently over the last four years. It is fun to go back through see the progress I’ve made and...

3 Things I Kept In Mind While Building A Team From Scratch

How the heck am I going to find people I like?  When I was first hired to launch an online platform and build a team around it, I was scared. For the longest time, I had avoided ‘people-related’ issues. I had the chance to select and lead project-based teams and boss around some interns, but I had never built a team that was going to help me succeed in building an online-based startup. Hiring for a startup is difficult enough, but I was hiring for a business based in a...
