Become A Sales Rockstar

Where to start a coaching business

So many coaches - talented, gifted coaches - struggle with sales and selling and here's why...

They have a deep belief that selling is manipulative, sleazy, and dishonest.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

As I explain in The Book of Coaching, sales is love.

Where to start a coaching business

Selling allows you to serve.

And that's my mantra...

Serve, first.

Approach sales and the act of selling as a service to your clients.

Think of it as an expression of who you are as a coach. Think of the transformations you can help create when your clients choose to work with you. Think of the lives you can change by sharing your skills and putting yourself out there to serve.

The exchange of money and service that happens between you and your client is something that's kind of sacred.

It's the promise that opens the door to possibilities...

The door to a whole new world and a whole new life for your clients - and for yourself!

As a coach of integrity, you know you'll do the work to get your clients where they want to go...

And selling is how you can get them there.

Now that we've redefined what "sales" and "enrollment" means to us as coaches... 

There's another piece to the sales puzzle I want you to think about.

Getting to the "yes."

Where to start a coaching business

To get to the yes, you have to get through a whole lot of "nos" and this is especially true for new coaches.

Now let me be straight with you...

Getting lots of no's? It's no big deal!

No is not a reflection of your skills or your abilities as a coach.

No is not a rejection of you as a person.

No is just a word.

And you have to get through a lot of "no's" to get to a yes.

That's just how it works.

Where to start a coaching business

My personal "yes" rate -- my enrollment rate -- improved over time and through many factors.

I became more confident and comfortable with my offers, packages, and skills as a coach.

And I learned to sell from a place of service. From a place of wanting to help...

From a place of love and caring.

"No's" are also necessary for your to enroll the right clients at the right time. The ones who want to do the work, the ones who you can serve best. 

When you learn to do the same thing...

When you come from a place of service, when you see "no" as nothing more than a word and not a rejection, when you become more and more confident in who you are as a coach...

Where to start a coaching business

That's when you'll engage, empower, and connect with your clients so just about every sales conversation you have will end in the words every coach wants to hear..

Yes! Where do I sign up?

Where to start a coaching business

From today onwards, actively and consciously redesign your relationship with sales and selling. Start thinking about the act of selling as a way to be of service because that's exactly what it is.

Set aside 15 to 30 minutes and journal your answers to these questions (or create an audio recording):

  1. How can I come from a place of love and service when I'm in a sales conversation with a coaching client?
  2. What can I do to create in-the-moment shifts for my clients during a conversation?
  3. How can I create a space of comfort and ease so my potential clients are open and willing during the enrollment conversation?
