    How to stop people wasting your time on discovery calls

    In a recent Queen of Business mastermind call, one of my clients (Queenies) asked what to do when you have clients come onto a discovery call and turn out to be time-wasters. 

    If you've been in business for any length of time, you'll know that this happens. Sometimes people do their research around who to work with. You'll also have those people that want to get some free coaching on the call. To help you overcome this issue, I'm sharing the three simple strategies we discussed.

    Your time is precious. You've got a queendom to run after all! You want people that are ready to work with you, not trying to get free information/advice.

    Here are 3 simple ways to reduce the amount of people taking up your time :

    1. Create a filtering system / selection process

    What do I mean by this? Create a form on your website that asks your potential clients a series of questions. You want to understand the following:
    What they are struggling with
    What they hope to achieve by working with you
    Their level of commitment

    I have to say that my favourite question of all time, is one that my then coach, Adrienne Dorison, gave me:

    ‘How committed are you emotionally and financially to working with me right now?”

    You need to know the level of commitment that this potential client has. This question cuts to the chase and allows you to find out whether they're going to be a good fit for what you have to offer. It stops time wasters because in that question they will usually share with you what level of budget they have and whether they are ready to commit financially or not. It’s not just about the money though. You want to know if they're ready emotionally too. 

    I like to KISS - Keep It Simple Sweetie - I just ask 4 questions now:
    What ONE key thing would you like to discuss on our call today? (It keeps the call focused)
    What have you done so far to resolve your current issue? (This tells me if they are action-takers or not)
    How committed are you emotionally and financially in us working together? (The golden question)
    Is there anything else you’d like to share with me in preparation for our call? (This allows them to share important detail with me if they want to)

    Sometimes, clients will share a story with you about how they've worked with other coaches and they haven't got results. 

    It's quite possible that this is because they weren't ready, rather than it being down to another coach(es) poor skills. If someone bemoans people that they've worked within the past, treat this as a red flag. 

    Once you know the answers to this question of emotional/financial commitment, you can then decide whether to carry on with the call or adjust the length of the call if necessary. 

    Let’s say that they complete the form and tell you that they're working to a £200 budget (change the currency to whatever works for you). You might know that your services start at £500. 

    You can then send them a link to a page on your website with your pric

    How To Use The Law Of Attraction To Attract Dream Clients

    Welcome to RYFB with me, Ruby McGuire, Business Mastery and Mindset Queen.

    Imagine how empowered you’d feel stepping into the space of a successful business Queen right now. What would that Queen do? Would she be tinkering around on social media? It’s more likely she’d be doing what’s essential to build her Queendom. This is what’s called, ‘Acting as if’ in the Law of Attraction world. Acting as if is a very powerful manifesting tool. Essentially you embody the person you want to be. 
    Assume you’re the Queen of Procrastination right now. We’ve all been there! Who would you be if you didn’t procrastinate? Maybe it’s a past version of you, or maybe it’s someone you know that seems to hardly ever procrastinate. What traits could you take from your fabulous past self, or that person that seems to have it all together?
    Maybe your goal is to invite in more clients. What would a successful business owner be doing to invite in more clients? A lot of successful business owners are very savvy with their time and resources. Maybe they’d do some strategic individual outreach to potential clients, perhaps they’d keep track of their income and expenditure on a regular basis, or spend time on creating some high-quality products.
    This is your invitation to explore.
     
    What would you like to create?
    Who do you know that has already created this particular thing? (Whether it’s a behaviour, or a relationship, or a dream house) How could you embody that person now?
    Here’s a simple 4-step framework for you:
    1. Know what you want - get crystal clarity
    2. Reverse engineer what you want - I’ll explain that next
    3. Play
    4. Believe (anything IS possible - the only limit is your imagination)
    Let’s walk through each of the steps one-by-one.
     
    1. Know what you want - get crystal clarity
    The Universe likes to play with you. If you don’t get absolute clarity about what you want, it’s likely that it will come to you in a different way. 
    I’ve had some funny things happen to me, like the time I asked for some beautiful flowers to be delivered to my door, only to open the box that arrived and find it was for my neighbour and not me! I hadn’t been specific enough.
     
    2. Reverse Engineering
    Choose something that you want to manifest, write it down
    Remember, be clear, or you’ll end up with something like my ‘flower’ outcome!
    Assume for a moment that you’ve already manifested your new dreamie clients
    If you’re struggling to get that idea in your mind, then you might have to suspend disbelief for now that it’s not possible for you. Who do you know that has already achieved this? Act as if you’re them. What do you think they’d have done to attract new clients? What tasks could you do to get similar results for your biz?
    Grab your notebook 
    At the bottom of the piece of paper, write down how many new dreamie clients you want to get. Next, write down the steps before that had to happen in order for you to attract them. This is reverse engineering.
    Here’s a few things you might consider …
    Decide what packages you want to offer Fix that wonky link on your

    Have you ever thought of using Oracle cards in your business?
     
    I use them for all sorts of things now. I recently wrote a post about this over on the Coaching Tools Company blog, which you can read here. I share a story of how the universe thought it was funny to play a game with me, and kept giving me a topic I didn’t want to write about! I thought I’d share a few more tips and an example to get you playing with your writing. 
     
    I use cards in my Queen of Business Mastermind each week. It’s a lovely way to start the meeting, it gives people a little shot of inspiration, and sometimes instigates some great conversations.
     
    I worked with a friend of mine many years ago, and because she was a friend it was quite hard to get out of the ‘helping’ phase. You know, where you want to offer ‘friend advice’. I knew this wasn’t what she needed, so I whipped my phone out and pulled a few cards on an app, and used this as the basis for coaching. She had some fabulous breakthroughs.
     
    Today I want to talk to you about using them to create content ideas. 
     
    1. Set an intention of what you want to create
     
    When I’m stuck with what to teach on a training call, or Facebook post, newsletter, or blog post, I simply get a card deck out and allow that to inspire me.
     
    So how do you do it?
     
    Sit with the cards in your hand, ask the universe to send you guidance on what you want to create Keep your dreamie client(s) in mind as you set your intention, that way you’ll get some clearer messages Shuffle the deck and pull three cards  
    2. Go through the messages and pull out some keywords that pop out at you
     
    As you flick through the cards you’ve pulled, you’ll want to notice which keywords/concepts pop out at you. Usually, your deck will have some extra wording that goes with the card. I don’t usually use everything that comes up. I just notice what resonates for me at the time.
     
    I’ll share an example of this with you soon. 
     
    3. Start writing
     
    Write whatever comes up for you around the keywords that popped out.
     
    Don’t filter, just allow yourself to free write. You might be surprised by how much actually comes up for you.
     
    Let’s pretend right now that I need to write a blog post. Here’s how the process works in action:
     
    Set Your Intention: I want to write a blog post about getting clients, but essentially the topic is around pricing
    Note Your Dreamie Client’s Perspective: I want my client to feel confident around the services they offer
    Pull Three Cards: You can just do one card, however, I find that three cards gives you juicier content (see footnote for cards I used):
     
    So let’s say I want to write a post about my Queenies (as I call them) getting clients, specifically around her pricing. My Queen doesn’t want to come across as needy, she’s just lacking confidence when she invites someone to buy from her.
     
    Let’s find out what cards come up (and no, these aren’t ones I’ve prepared earlier. I’m acting as if I’m really writing this as

    If you’re reading this, then take it as your sign that you’re meant to be stepping up as Queen of your business, the leader.
     
    Leading is about being confident, having a sense of surety about you. There are many different types of leaders. You can be autocratic, democratic, laissez-faire, direct, coaching, supportive, bureaucratic, to name just a few. 
     
    There are also many different traits that you perceive a good leader has to have, i.e. integrity, compassion, vision, self-awareness, communication skills etc.
     
    In my Queen of Business Mastermind groups, we have a really fun session where the Queenies spend some time exploring the traits of a Queen, and then we define what skills and qualities they need to develop/embody. They choose who their Queen of inspiration is. It’s amazing how different everyone perception of being a Queen is so varied. [LINK]
     
    The beauty of running your own business is that you get to define the role. 
     
    What characteristics do you think make a good queen?
     
    Here’s a list of some of the things I like to think make you a good Queen.
     
    1. Queens are visionaries and influencers. You think strategically and are willing to try new ways of doing things. You inspire others to think and dream bigger. You are a trailblazer, not willing to always follow the crowd, but defining how you want to carve out your business and life. 
     
    2. Queens lead by example - You’ve spent time perfecting your craft, and act as an inspiration to others. You don’t just teach people what they should do, you do it yourself first, and then share your experiences of it.
     
    3. Queens are committed. You’re committed to your business and the work it involves.  You’re also committed to taking action, walking the talk, and being accountable. You know you will never be perfect (perfection doesn’t exist), yet keep being the best person you can be with your knowledge, skills and attributes. You have a winning attitude. 
     
    4. Queens act with integrity - You are trustworthy - You do what you say you are going to do, honouring your commitments. You speak your truth with kindness, even if it feels uncomfortable. You’re clear on your values, and what you will and won’t tolerate within your boundaries.
     
    You are authentic in everything you do. Part of this integrity is your willingness to be vulnerable, in order to connect with your people. While this may not come naturally, you keep developing the skills so that it becomes easier with time. You have high standards and know it’s better to under-promise and over-deliver. 
     
    5. Queens are strong decision-makers. You aren’t afraid to stand up for what you believe in - You are true to yourself. You make a decision and stick to it, knowing when to change the plan if it’s not working.
     
    You know you need to be decisive. Even if that decisiveness means going back to your best friend, mastermind group etc. to help you make a quick decision. You know you need to behave in a way that shows you as a leader, not a follower. That confiden

Great Podcast for Coaches & Business Owners

I listened to all 5 current episodes on my long drive to Kent last Friday and loved all of them. Ruby is great at getting her message and information across and also interviewing others. Easy to listen to and full of great hints, tips and advise on getting the best out of your [coaching] business (even though it is aimed at coaches, I am not one and I get a lot out of the podcast). Keep it up Ruby :)
