It wasn’t supposed to be like this.
When I first began my coaching training I had visions in my head of all of the women I would help. I imagined emails from moms telling me about breakthroughs and I imagined teary phone calls filled with pride. I knew from personal experience how working with a good coach can transform you.
And then I began the process of trying to get clients.
All over the internet, there are business coaches with programs and systems that promise to make you loads of money. They will get you to six-figure months! They will teach you to write emails that NO ONE can say no to! They will give you the life of your dreams!
They pair these claims with screenshots of their bank accounts, photos of family vacations in far away lands, and promises of financial freedom. For someone who has never had financial freedom in 38 years of life, this was all extremely seductive.
I forgot who I am and why I got into this to begin with. I started creating packages for my services even though it felt limiting and wrong. I started using sales language and formulas for sales pages even though they felt manipulative to me. After all – I knew that their systems had worked ON me so why shouldn’t they work FOR me. I spent a ridiculous amount of money that we didn’t really have in order to launch this business “the right way”.
Just like I tell you all that you have to put YOU at the center of your life, it is time for me to put ME at the center of my business. I’d love it if you’d join me there.
There won’t be any more formulaic sales pages or pitches. There won’t be anything that doesn’t feel true to me. I am going to keep creating free learning opportunities for moms and expectant parents. I’m going to keep offering high-value, low-cost educational products. I’m going to keep giving as much as I can to those who sign up for my courses. And if any of that leads to you wanting to work with me one on one – great! I’d love to help.
Maybe this isn’t ‘professional’ and maybe I’m leaving a ton of money on the table with this attitude. But I don’t ever, EVER want any of my moms to feel about me the way I feel about some of these course creators.
