Untitled (Poster (Landscape)) (Instagram Post)

Design the life you want by creating a coaching business that suits your lifestyle.  We all want to find a way to do more of what we love and less of what we don’t. For many people, this means starting their own coaching business.

This can be an extremely rewarding endeavor, but it’s important to set things up in a way that allows you plenty of freedom.

In this blog post, we will discuss some tips for creating a coaching business that works with your schedule and helps you achieve your goals!

What are your goals?

One of the most important things to consider when starting a coaching business is what your goals are. What do you want to achieve with your business?

Do you want to help people reach their potential? Do you want to change lives?

Once you know what your goals are, you can start planning how to best achieve them.

My dream …

I had a dream many years ago to help more people work from home doing what they love. It seemed crazy to me that when women went on maternity leave the only jobs that were available to them to work from home were lowly paid, like filling in surveys, working as a freelancer making peanuts or data entry work. Some of these women were ex corporates who had executive level positions. Why couldn’t they monteize the skills they had?

Now I teach coaches & consultants to monetize the skills they have to work from home, online, doing what they love. They work the hours they want to, with who they want to and get paid what they are worth.

What you need to consider …

If this is something you desire too then consider the following:

What type of business do you want? What industry are you in? What problems do you solve for your clients? Who are your ideal clients?

You need to be clear on this as it will determine what marketing channels you use to reach your ideal clients, what type of services or products you sell and how you structure your business.

For example, if you want to work with busy moms who are struggling to find time for themselves, you might want to offer a service that helps them manage their time better.

You could offer a time management course, or one-on-one coaching to help them identify their priorities and create a schedule that works for them.

If you want to work with entrepreneurs who are struggling to scale their businesses, you might want to offer a service that helps them streamline their business processes.

You could offer a business automation course, or one-on-one coaching to help them identify areas of their business that could be automated.

Once you know who your ideal clients are and what problems you solve for them, you can start planning your business around that.

Some things to consider:

-What services or products will you offer?

-How will you deliver those services or products?

-How often will you work with clients?

-How much will you charge for your services or products?

-What types of payments will you accept?

Build it to suit your lifestyle …

Another we do when we look to help our business owners is to ask them what kind of lifestyle they have?

Do they like to travel?

Are there times when they’re not going to be available to be on calls?

Do they want to work weekends, and have time off during the week?

Do they not want to be on camera at all and only sell digital products?

What is important to them? Designing a business to support their lifestyle will ensure they enjoy it, and stick with it.

If it means they want to travel, but they want to support their clients on live calls maybe they only offer live calls once or twice a month. There are many ways to work around this. It all comes down to making choices.

Many of our clients only work during school hours because they have young children and want to enjoy time with them when they come home from school.

They work during the day, spend time with the kids before and after school and log back in in the evening for anything they didn’t complete during the day.

It’s fully flexible.

Some clients work in the business part-time until it grows to a point where they can go full time.

Others take seasons off. It’s truly up to you.

You can design a coaching business that suits your lifestyle, and that will help you reach your goals.

Now I’d love to hear from you. What kind of coaching business do you want to create? What kind of lifestyle do you want to have? Leave a comment below and let me know.
