More and more people want to become coaches. Their motivation differs, of course, but in the end all of those who want to achieve a coaching certification have the same goal: to be successful. Even if you have only just received your coaching certificate, or you are looking for another approach to your coaching, before you start formulating strategies and plans, ask yourself this question: What kind of coaching activity would you like to create?
Yes, it is quite difficult to answer, to define it. But in the end all of you will answer that you would like to create a coaching business that generates revenue.
Well, the answer to this question lies within you. You must define your goals from your own individual point of view, find out what you like to do most, what your skills and best assets are which you can use to develop a flourishing coaching business.
For example, there are people who are used to working 10 hours a day, because that is the way they know how to generate revenue. Others create a system that allows them to have enough free time to enjoy other aspects of their life. All these approaches are good, once each of these coaches knows exactly what they want from their business and their life.
Regardless of how you use your coaching, you must always remember that the way you want to create your business must reflect your lifestyle, your abilities, your talents and your objectives in terms of revenue. All in all, it must reflect YOU, as an individual and as a coach. After all it is your coaching business and nobody else’s. Your personal touch will be felt by your clients, who will see in you the expert they need, they will feel your confidence and positive attitude towards coaching.
The first step to take is to answer the following questions, with complete honesty, and these answers will give you an idea of where to go next in your coaching:
o What kind of lifestyle do you want?
o How much revenue are you aiming for?
o What are your natural abilities and talents you could use in coaching?
It is only normal that your goals may change over time as your business grows. Still, having a clear idea of what you are aiming for could help you to set intermediate objectives.
Always keep in mind that there is not just one type of coaching. There are no standards or traditions to follow. Your only limit is your imagination and your goals. Focus on the answer to these 3 questions and you will see how many opportunities you have to develop a successful coaching business.
Certification does not guarantee your path to success in coaching. Of course, it provides you with a certain status in the market, a qualification, but the way you perceive coaching and present yourself to your potential clients makes all the difference between just a coach with a diploma and a successful coach. There are so many ways to become a successful coach, simply because, first and foremost, coaching brings out everything about the creation of this activity, the development of the business aspect of this job. Once you realize that and put it into practice, you will be one of those coaches who really make it in this business.
