LESSON 1: The World Needs Coaches -- Understanding Your Value

Welcome to Lesson 1 of The Profitable Coach! The first thing we're going to focus on is making sure you really understand why the world needs YOU. In this lesson we'll talk about some of the common pitfalls and challenges that coaches come up against, and removing any doubts or roadblocks that could keep you from being successful in your business.

LET'S TALK: What do you need to be an expert in as a coach? Not everything! In this video we're going to talk about that -- and what to do in a situation where you are asked a question that is not in your area of expertise.

LET'S TALK: Where do you want to be 12 months from now? What kind of business are you working to build? These are questions you need to think about now. Let's talk about why...

HOW TO: In this video we tackle how you can start to truly understand the value you bring to the table as a coach.

This is all about finding the courage and confidence you need to step into your coaching shoes fully and firmly!
