#066 - How to make fast cash as a professional coach. Kicking your coaching business into high gear overnight.

May 02, 2016, 10:21 AM

One of our listeners wrote in this week with a desperate request:

I resigned my position as a _______ pastor at the end of March to get out of a very unhealthy staff situation and go full-time into my coaching and training business. While I had some good momentum heading towards my April 1 launch date to go full-time, I’ve experienced rejected or postponed proposals that have me in a bit of a tailspin. I’m not sure how to generate coaching clients. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

The above excerpt is mild. But as I dove deeper into his story my heart broke. He has a wife and kids and he's burning through cash...fast.

He needs to stop the bleeding...fast.

I wanted to help. And after a few days, I thought of a way. He gave me permission to share his story...without using his real name. And so I dedicated an episode for him...and others like him.

Although I'd never recommend launching a coaching business when you're up against the ropes, without a backup plan, sometimes you don't have a choice. Whether or not your back is against the wall, if you need strategies to kickstart your business, then tune in. I share the tactics I used to launch my own coaching business.

These principles can be integrated into many different industries. Don't give in to your fears. There is hope.

Kick your business into high gear overnight.
