Frequently Asked Questions

Who do you work with?

I work with Heart Centered Service Providers, Accidental Entrepreneurs, Coaches, and Consultants...

 

Basically anyone who wants to start a business doing work that they love to do, and that provides a service that has a positive impact on the world. 

I'm going through coach training and not certified yet, is it too early for me to go start my coaching business?

No. Now is the perfect time for you to start your coaching business! Most independent certification programs require you to have paying clients while you work towards certification.

If you're going through the Co-Active Training Institute, Coach Certification Program, then you'll be required to carry a minimum of 5 clients and do a total of 100 hours of coaching to pass.

 

The ICF (International Coach Federation) also has a minimum requirement for hours to achieve your ACC, PCC, and MCC. So having paying clients is required to move ahead.

Also- Getting your certification can be expensive. You might as well pay it off as you go!

If I'm going through CTI's certification to become a CPCC, can you be my certification coach?

No. While I am myself a trained Co-Active Coach, and a CPCC (Certified Professional CoActive Coach), I do not stick strictly to the Co-Active style of coaching in my work.

 

I blend with Business Strategy, Business Training, and Leadership Development. This will confuse the bejeezes out of you while going through your certification.

Also- I hate tracking hours so I haven't submitted for my PCC/MCC yet.

I will happily work with you in conjunction with your Certification Coach.

Do you guarantee that your clients will make a certain amount of money?

I can't. Like with any kind of coaching, your success is dependent on you doing the work! 

If you hired a diet coach, went to all your sessions, and then didn't make any changes to your diet or exercise routines then you wouldn't see a change on the scale. It's the same with building a business.

My clients usually start making back their investment by month 3 of working together- if not sooner- and walk away with the core skills required to grow their business to six-figures and beyond. 

How much does it cost to work with you?

Depending on which program you sign up for, you can expect to invest anywhere from the low four figures to the low five.

 

My group programs are designed to be accessible to those on a budget. Book a call with me to find out more.

I have no idea how to market or sell my service- also I don't really know what my service is. Do I need to know this before I work with you?

Absolutely not! Most of my clients come to me having little to no idea what the details of their business are, and how to market and sell them.

 

We design your programs and services together, develop a marketing p​lan and I train on a Holistic Selling system that is effective, based in integrity, and doesn't feel gross.

I'm not a coach- I'm an expert in something and want to build a consulting business- Do you work with starting consultants? 

Some of my most successful clients have been consultants! The cool thing about starting any kind of business is that many of the skills are the same, the strategy is just a bit different. Book a call to learn more.

I saw a live you did on linkedin / facebook / instagram, and I really loved it- do you ever do keynote talks on those topics? Also, how would I book you for that? 

Yes, if I'm talking about it in a live then I absolutely have a keynote talk on it.

 

You'll want to book a call with me so we can talk about your needs for your event, and clarify what part of my message you think your audience needs to hear. 

I have heard about your leadership training and coaching that you've done for companies, do you still do this and how would I find out more? 

I absolutely still do leadership coaching and training- It's where I first found success in my business and makes a HUGE impact on the world. Please book a call to find out more.
