Laura-Catherine (LC) Etheridge and Bryan Pettet are Christians who make six figures each coaching full-time. For them, it absolutely isn't about the money. The reason I mention it is because I want to encourage our listeners that you can make good money using your coaching skills. You can live a sustained life as a coach. Bryan and LC are just great human beings, and you pick that up very quickly. There is a lot of goodness in this podcast, but I boiled down a few take aways so that as you listen, maybe you won't have to take as many notes.
 
We treat conversations with potential clients as a coaching conversation
  • Do it in person
  • High quality conversation
  • Let them feel the difference
 
We don't have a program. We listen and bring value where they need it.
  • Encouragement
  • Clarity
  • Coaching is networking. Networking is coaching.
 
Word of mouth is our best marketing technique.
  • We ask for introductions to others.
 
Feel confident in your training going into the conversation.
  • Coaching works
  • Treat it as God's calling in your life
 
Count conversations not closings. 
  • It takes 6 months to 18 months to gain a client.
  • Make friends with the kind of people you want as clients.

Jane Creswell is a pioneer in the coaching field and one of the founders of Coach Approach Ministries. Whenever I'm with her, I can feel the power of her coaching knowledge. In this podcast, she describes how to do Group Coaching in such a succinct way that I think you should be able to give it a shot. Group coaching certainly has advantages, which are lower cost for those involved and can actually be higher income for those who do it.

Here are some notes for Group Coaching.
 
  1. Identify a topic that is important to everyone in the group. 
  2. The group comes together with the topic already set so that affinity is very high.
  3. Set up an expectation of how individuals should work in this setting.
  4. Ask the group to share successes in the area of this topic.
  5. While they share, listen for resonance in the group so you can narrow the topic.
  6. Pick one person to be the voice of the group and coach that individual.
  7. Tell everyone else to create an action for themselves as the one is being coached. 
  8. At the end, every single person voices their action step.

Coaches love to coach, and they aren't that picky to who they coach. But to build a clientele, you have to narrow your market so that your potential client knows that you'd like to coach them. In this podcast, Chad Hall and I drill down into this issue.
