You did the research. You just need a website, a little hosting, a free theme, email sign up box, great free offer and DONE. You probably also felt incredibly proud that you figured out how to keep it cheap. (I sure did). But it didn’t stay that way did it? It cost more money, more time, and tons of clarity. (Uhhg, the thought of that just makes me nauseous.)
You are working really hard at building your coaching business. You push yourself to get things done, starting with life coach certification maybe, then a website, business cards, but you push to make decisions to move forward. You go, go, and go, with a drive that is insane. And your business goes nowhere (or not much further past launch). You know? That really sucks and why is it? It doesn’t make sense; I mean we are supposed to be rewarded for hard work right? That’s what my mama told me.
I’m going to tell you why this happens (more often then not) and how to chain it up for good. I’m even going to give you a nifty tool to use to keep you from doing it!
Run for the trees and you might just hit a few, but it won’t be pretty, I promise. Starting a coaching business online is much like entering a forest of “must haves.” There are so many must haves or the perception of such, that it is a treacherous sprint through what you think you should have and what you really need in order to get your business going.
It can make you so totally lost – like, I don’t even know why I started this business in the first place, lost.
