You're a qualified or trainee coach (or consultant).
You’re excited to use your skills to improve people’s lives.
You’re ready to build a business that makes proper money.
But getting clients is harder than you thought.
Where do you find them?
How do you get them to pay you (without feeling salesy or awkward)?
And how can you deliver your coaching with confidence?
The Business of Coaching Programme solves the 3 biggest obstacles stopping you building a brilliant business.
Trying to get clients can feel like shouting into the wind, or just hiding and hoping.
Maybe you’ve got lucky and gained a client or two. But it feels like you don’t have a solid system in place to regularly bring in clients.
Answer: Let’s build your business foundations.
1) We’ll use my Front Door Navigator to create your beautifully clear niche and message. No more overthinking or endless tinkering with ideal client avatars.
2) You’ll use my Intangible to Tangible process to create a compelling offer, transforming it from a ‘nice to have’ into a ‘must have’. Plus, you’ll learn powerful frameworks for naming, pricing and validating your programme, saving you from uncertainty.
3) We’ll map out your Business Growth Machine to get more eyes on your business every month. What works for you will depend on your strengths and strategy, so we’ll work that out together too.
You can be a brilliant coach, but if people don’t understand what you do, you won’t get clients. It’s easy to avoid being visible, and ‘sales’ often brings up the fear of rejection.
This can also stop you from charging what you’re really worth.
Answer: Let’s build your effective marketing and sales process.
We’ll make a simple mindset shift so you’re eager to share your message with the world. We’ll work on your strengths, and what energises you, to create a marketing and sales plan that feels completely you.
1) Clarifying your message: You’ll discover the secret to presenting your coaching in a way that’s both honest and transformational. We’ll create an authentic, compelling message that speaks directly to your ideal clients so they can’t help but contact you, saying: “It’s like you’re in my head. Can we talk?”
2) Creating a simple sales funnel: You'll craft your first sales funnel (even if you’re a technophobe) which will bring your clients to you, so you don’t have to chase them.
3) Making sales calls smoother: When you have a discovery call, what do you say? Using my CHANGE Sales Framework, you’ll walk prospects through a warm, caring sales process that converts them into ideal clients, maximising results, without the hard sell. You’ll learn to engage and sell in a way that cultivates trust and aligns with your values. This will help you silence that little voice saying – ‘How will I get the words out?!’ – and can charge an amount you can live well on.
It’s natural to feel self-doubt or imposter syndrome with the business side of coaching.
Providing clients with a consistently great experience gives them confidence in your abilities, and gives you the confidence to charge more. Thankfully, you don’t need to radiate charisma to achieve this, you just need to have the right systems in place.
Answer: Create your coaching and delivery systems
1) Delighting clients
You’ll learn how to escape selling coaching by the hour and what to do instead. You’ll also get answers to all the questions going round your head, like:

2) Capturing client wins
We’ll harness all the amazing successes your clients have. You’ll learn how to collect feedback, through surveys or reflection forms, and incorporate it into wonderful case studies which showcase your client’s journeys.
3) Making the most of referrals
Referrals are your fastest path to growth. And you don’t need to wait to receive them – you’ll get all you need to build a referral system from the start, so your clients and network do the hard work for you.
We’ll work together as part of an intimate group over six months, helping you to grow, connect and belong.
You’ll follow my step-by-step system to build the four pillars that form the foundation of your coaching business – Niche, Message, Offer, Marketing & Sales.
Bite-sized training, anytime
All the training is shared through approx. 15-minute videos, that you can implement as you watch, to move forward quickly. They’re designed to fit around busy lives – watch anytime, day or night. And you’ll gain lifetime access to the content.
You’ll hit milestones throughout the programme and receive feedback on the important elements of your work.

After 12 weeks, you’ll have solid business, marketing and sales systems in place.
But it doesn’t end there. We all know building a sustainable business takes time. So, I’ll be with you every step of the way, with support and encouragement as you continue to strengthen your business foundations.
By the end of our six months together, our goal is for you to have a personalised marketing strategy that consistently attracts your ideal clients, all year round.
You’ll gain access to our community mastermind group, where you can share your work for feedback from me and your new ‘board of directors’ (aka the fantastic coaches and new friends building their businesses alongside you).

We’ll cover additional live deep-dive training, hot-seat coaching, answering questions, or do breakout rooms to connect, inspire and motivate you. These sessions will also be recorded if you can’t make them live.
We’ll work closely together to keep you accountable, provide in-depth feedback, and help you build your practice. I’m proud of the systems and space I’ve created for you to learn and implement, and to help you feel seen, heard and supported.
