I know when I set out on this journey to be a professional coach, I had no idea how I was going to do it and what it would involve. I did know that some coaches were making money from coaching so it was possible. However, as the first few months went by it looked more and more difficult and less and less likely that I would ever be able to do this work full-time.
One thing that my coach helped me with was to simply concentrate on the next step. What was the next thing I needed to do? Now my mind would think about the next 10 steps and I might feel overwhelmed by that but bring my attention back to simply the next thing allowed me to progress.
When I work with coaches, I often ask them, what is the next step for them? Almost every time they know what it is and that’s the thing we focus on as opposed to nebulous questions around being more visible or how to scale their business one day.
I hope that this community helps you see that creating a coaching practice isn’t just for the few. Posts from Kerstin Andlaw, Matthew Halfin and Nathaniel Dunn show us how there are normal people taking one step after the other to create their coaching practice.
