1. Coming from a place of service.
As a coach, the first and foremost thing for you is to want to help people, make an impact in their lives. Not to make money or get rich. And also not be coming from a place of desperation, needy, or scarcity. Coming from a place of service makes a huge difference in every aspect of your coaching. And I can tell you that from experience as I’ve also made that mistake myself in the past.And it’s the same thing I see with clients. Those who are extremely passionate about coaching and helping others first do way better.
2. Having correct guidance & support.
Having sensible guidance & support in place is also a key in succeeding with your coaching business. There’s plenty of information & experts out there. So it’s crucial to get the correct one. Not only that but also making sure that you go through that guidance thoroughly and get full understanding so you can implement & execute correctly to get results.
3. Done it long enough.
Human beings are general conditioned to seek instant results, if they don’t get them that means that thing does not work and they are ready to throw a towel and give up. Well when it comes to coaching, you’ll have to understand your coaching market well so that you’ll be able to provide a coaching solution to their problems that get you paid as a coach. If you don’t know your coaching market well because you haven’t taken enough time to do so then you would not be able to match your market’s problem with the solution that would get you the success you looking for.
4. Having the right characteristics.
Most people would want to be successful now while their characteristics aren’t yet in line with those of a person who deserves success. And they wonder why they are not succeeding now.Well in order to be successful you’ll need to have to match the characteristics of a successful person. Someone who genuinely adds great value to people’s lives, is disciplined, committed, has a clear understanding of how the world and things, they’ve followed the right guidance, and has good overall mental models.
5. Being a full-stack
That’s what one of my mentors would say, be a full-stack. Your success as a coach is not going to come from one little marketing strategy or from some sales script or technique. But it would come from all things that you need to have in place which are connected together such as a coaching solution that your market wants and willing to pay for. An ability to communicate it effectively with your market, a correct well-executed marketing strategy that’s going to allow you to reach and connect you with your market, and the ability to conversate with your market showing them the value of your coaching. It would be a combination of all. Therefore you’ll have to be able to do all of these things correctly or effectively. And that requires you to do all of them effectively.
