OMG what a full day!
I have fully accepted that fact that before 3pm I am just not being productive on anything related to my coaching and creating money (a track record of the whole last week). BUT after about 6 pm till about midnight I rock!
After getting some of my project management work done in the first part of the day, and between 4 and 6 pm helping set up a room for a Harmony Integration coach training that starts tomorrow here in White Rock, BC, I got home about 6 pm. For about couple hours I was fighting myself trying to be productive and work on my website or doing anything on my coaching and I was totally resisting and procrastinating. About 8 pm I finally slowed down and asked myself what I would be excited about doing in that area rather than pushing myself. Reading came to mind. I've started reading this book "Prosperous Coach" about how to create a full coaching practice in a fun and connected way. So I set everything aside and got to continue reading it. OMG this book rocks my world! I love the approach which is all about creating relationships and focusing on giving value rather than selling and at the same time creating an abundant practice with committed and exciting clients.
Flip flopping the whole day about what level of detail I need to design my coaching packages to, by the end of the night after reading the book I decided that it overall doesn't matter. The most important thing is to focus on the kind of clients I want to work with and then diving into coaching, no more excuses or busy work. So what I will do is create a list of criteria I want to use to filter out MY clients and then put a video on my Services page about that and whoever is interested and fits the criteria can sign up for an initial free session with me and if by the end of it it feels like a fit to work together we can design a package right there and then that fits best. Plus I will make my initial free sessions 2 hours looks instead of 30 minutes so I can really serve people and they can fully experience my coaching and see if this is something that works for them and worth their investment.
So in the next week even with my busy schedule of staffing Harmony Integration coach training during the day and putting in project management hours in the evenings I commit to finish the list of criteria for my clients, create a video and have it ready to launch next week when I am back in Seattle and have more time.
And I feel so happy that I got our of resistant space about reaching out to prospective clients to an exciting one!
Wins from the day:
So excited about tomorrow! In the next seven days straight I will be helping facilitate Harmony Integration coach training which I took half a year ago and which was so pivotal in my personal development as well as in my coaching. Looking forward to serving all the new coaches diving into it as well as learning lots myself and creating massive shifts in my life through this intensive work.
Time to go to bed and get some sleep.

So glad you are reading the Prosperous Coach, it is a game changer in terms of how we "sell" coaching. Coach coach coach and serve serve serve.
