WHO DO YOU WANT TO WORK WITH?

 

emptynotebook

One of the ways to determine the type of client you DO want to work is to determine the type of client you DON’T want to work with.

Then flip the script to uncover your true desire.

For example,

I don’t want to work with people who constantly argue for their limitations and why they aren’t good enough.

Becomes——————-–>

I want to work with people who constantly search for possibilities and see or are willing to see their worthiness.

Do you have your list of what you are and are not looking for in a client? Having this kind of clarity is so awesome because when you have conversations with potential clients you can tell quickly if it’s a fit.

EXTRA CREDIT~ Ask yourself if you show up as the person you do/don’t want to attract. Course Correct with LOVE if necessary!

YOU DON’T HAVE TO FEEL READY

MikeandIbabyshower

I’ve always known that I wanted to be a mother and have children. However, when I found out I was pregnant, I felt nervous and scared. I didn’t know how my life would change, how my body would change and how my ability to pursue the things I wanted out of life would be impacted. The thought of going from single, carefree woman to stable parent, putting someone else’s needs before my own was daunting.

I wondered if I was emotionally and financially READY to take on this life changing responsibility. Not to mention, I had terrible morning sickness all day long the first trimester AND I had broken out in hives for the first time in life, which lasted for months. NOT FUN!

Yet, somehow, I knew this was my child and I stepped out on FAITH that I would grow into who I needed to be. I took becoming a mother step by step and I still am. I began to seek out professionals that would support me in having an empowering pregnancy and birth experience. I found a midwife and a doula. I took hypnosis for childbirth. I watched beautiful videos of childbirth and breastfeeding. I got a belly cast and had some beautiful pictures of me taken while pregnant.

As the months went by the fear subsided and I couldn’t wait to meet my daughter. Stepping into the unknown of childbirth and motherhood taught me so much about TRUST. I deepened into the knowing that you don’t have to have it all figured out. Life REALLY does usher to support you when you step out on FAITH. This has come in the form of money, clothes, toys, help, advice, and so much more.

I think starting and growing a business is like being in gestation and giving birth. It’s never EXACTLY as you had planned. I don’t know that you can be fully “ready” for a baby or to to take the next leap in your business. You just don’t know what you don’t know until you are there. But when you say YES and keep putting one foot in front of the other and gather your resources of guidance, the way will be made clear.

Today, I invite you to dismantle this idea of readiness in favor of choosing to move forward in your business even though you may not feel “ready”. You can choose to take the next step. That might be hosting a workshop, setting up your FB page, writing that blog post, reaching out to a potential client, making an offer, following through on some divine inspiration, etc. The path of FAITH will teach you everything you need to know and will bring you the people and resources you need!❤️

P.S~ I was 8 months pregnant in this photo with my daughter Naima.

DO YOU HAVE A CLIENT ATTRACTION PLAN?

 

pediatrician

I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy in February. Given that he came 5 weeks early and was just shy of 6lbs, steady weight gain is something that my midwife and pediatrician had been wanting me to keep a close eye on.

My little guy lost weight and had a few days were he either lost weight or his weight stayed the same. The pediatrician and other health care professionals were expressing concern and recommending that I supplement with formula. Even my son’s father was a little worried. You can imagine how stressful and difficult this was for me.

I was feeling torn because it had been my intention to exclusively breastfeed for the first 6 months like I did with my daughter. However, him being early and losing weight had me questioning myself. Am I making enough milk? Is he hungry? Should I give him formula or get some donor’s milk?

My midwife suggested we come up with a breastfeeding plan where I nurse him and then pump and give him the expressed milk to make sure he was getting enough milk. He started gaining weight right away.

Pumping every 3 hours on top of nursing while not having adequate sleep was a commitment and not easy. But each time his father weighed him and he gained weight it was so worth it.

I saw rapid results as soon as we came up with a plan that I was willing to implement. The same happened with my coaching business. As soon as I came up with a plan to attract clients, I started enrolling clients to work with me.

Putting a new plan into place can be inconvenient, uncomfortable and also exciting. However, it so rewarding when you start getting traction with getting clients, producing more milk or whatever it is you are wanting to manifest.

DO YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNTABILITY OR SUPPORT BUDDY?

 

One of the challenges of working for yourself is that you have no supervisor telling you that you have to meet a deadline. You don’t risk getting fired or not getting paid if you don’t follow through on your commitments. This is the blessing of entrepreneurship but can also be the difficulty.

However, if you want to have a successful business you have to consistently show up and follow through. That is not always easy, especially if you are working at home or in isolation. It’s easy to get distracted and lack focus with a flexible work day.

I have fellow colleagues that I meet with on a regular basis in person, by video chat and phone to support me in getting things done. Knowing that I will be talking to them ups my commitment and follow through.

What structures do you have in place to support you in getting important tasks done?

The Science of Getting Rich

sciencegettingrichI have had the Science of Getting Rich in my library for some time. I have it near the bed side and have been coming back to it recently. It really resonates with me how each of us are born with an innate desire to reach our fullest potential and how the desire to earn more money is simply an extension of that.

“Whatever may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich. No person can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money. In order to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them with.

People develop in mind, soul and body by making use of things, and society is so organized that people must have money in order to become the possessor of things. Therefore, the basis of all human advancement must be the science of getting rich.”

The desire to earn abundantly as a coach is something that comes up a lot in my coaching practice along with so many mixed feelings about it. Feelings of guilt, unworthiness, and self-doubt appear as well as the desire for more expansion in every area including abundance.

RESISTANCE FROM YOUR PARTNER

MikeandI

To be honest, I have a really supportive partner. Not only is he supportive of my business, he helps me with it. Sometimes he handles some of the system pieces that would make my head explode if I had to figure it out myself.

And still at times he can be resistant. On Sunday Evening we were planning our week and our schedule as we normally do. I was letting him know that this would be an unusually busy week for me because I would be gone most of the day two days this week requiring him to do more childcare. Although he didn’t say no, I could tell he wasn’t happy about it.

I noticed that I felt tight and contracted about his reaction. I shared with him that I wasn’t feeling his willingness to be accommodating to some important things that were happening for me this week. He stopped for a moment and realized that he was feeling resistant and WAS supportive of me doing these things for my business. It was feeling uncomfortable for him to have to change his routine. He might not be able to get as much work done with the baby around. Not to mention being with the baby all day without a break can be demanding.

Sometimes, you have to take a stand for your business or dream in your own relationship. I think about my daughter when I am away from her even though we are together most of the time. Yet, I have to remember that I am not solely responsible for her either. My work is just as important as her Dad’s work.

At times you will be met with resistance and you have to ask for what you need and know that you and your dream are worthy of support.

Have you dealt with resistance from a partner or loved one?

Do I Need A Website to Get Coaching Clients?

Are you waiting on your website before you can start advertising your coaching services? Is that the thing that you think will have you be taken seriously?I have been in that same place.

Interestingly enough, I got the website up and not much changed other than that I could say I have a website. Clients didn’t drop in my lap as a result. I have made a number of business cards over the years that I never used and have since gone to waste. I thought once I have my cards it will be official that I am a professional.

It’s wonderful to have marketing materials that you like and are proud of. It is an extension of your business. However, the thing you need to market the most is your actual service, which happens through conversations. Conversations with people about what matters to them and how your coaching can be in service to that.
