Building your coaching business will lead you on one of the greatest personal development journeys that you likely didn’t realize you needed.
Most coaches jump into coaching because they want to help others, create businesses they love, make an impact, and make an income while making a difference in the world. But most of the coaches I work with quickly figure out that even the first step of telling people they’re a life coach can be a challenge.

Can you relate to this?
I know I can.
I remember having a hard time telling my colleagues I was a life coach. I was questioning myself and worried about what other people would think about me. Especially because I was beginning this journey and hadn’t yet created any real results.

I always believed I would graduate and go to college. There wasn’t ever any doubt.
I had no proof that I could actually do those things but I chose to believe them anyway.
And I carried those beliefs with me until they were my reality.
This is what becoming a life coach requires – belief ahead of time, belief without any results to fall back on, belief regardless of what anyone else says or does, internal belief!
If the results you have right now aren’t what you want, nothing has gone wrong.
But let’s get curious about why you don’t have the results you want.
One of the things I help my clients with is moving into the energy of creating results today.
Let’s try this out.
The more you’re willing to try on this new identity and BE her, the more you will create the results you want.
