    3 Things Coaches Should Invest In

    3 Things Coaches Should Invest In

    Coming to you from my new house (finally, the search is over!) I want to touch on three tips and tricks for investing in the upcoming new year. First, invest in your business training. There is a clear divide between your skills as a coach and your ability to market that to others, so make sure to separate those two! Secondly, invest in a system to get clients. Create a consistent funnel of clients that you can navigate through when you're looking for extra work or even when you look to pull back a little. Lastly, invest in relationships. Coming from the corporate world, many of those relationships are built in. In coaching we gotta put in a little extra work to find that community, but trust me, it’s so worth it!
    What we are talking about…
    We finally moved! Our home is a charming place with character that I’m excited to love with my family. Huge shout out to Pure Salt Interiors for creating a beautiful aesthetic in my home! I’ve loved coaching them the past few years and the opportunity to see them in action! Three things we should be investing in this year as coaches  1. Invest in business training You have the skills, now it’s time to market yourself! Creating a distinction between the two will allow you to reflect on your own abilities. If the clients aren’t knocking at your door, don’t assume it's your coaching skills, take a moment to reflect on your own business training and marketing.  2. Invest in a system to get clients  I’ve seen many of my students make huge strides in this over the last year! Create a consistent funnel of clients and know where to get them You are the boss. You get to decide when to take on extra clients or when to pull back to enjoy other parts of life. Doing this will let you work in security no matter what season you are in! 3. Invest in relationships The corporate world built this in, but now what? Be willing to invest a little time and money to find your own community This can be through classes or conferences Hope holiday season, you got this!  LINKS MENTIONED

    How To Manifest Your Dream Home, Job, & Partner {Featuring Julia Martin}

    How To Manifest Your Dream Home, Job, & Partner {Featuring Julia Martin}

    Today we are sitting down with manifestation and business coach Julia Martin to talk about the power of… drum roll please... manifesting! If you're not a spiritual believer in this kind of thing, stick with us because I’m a skeptic too. Despite my best efforts to poke holes at what seems woowoo, we discuss scientific evidence that supports turning an envisioned life into reality. We share how we envisioned our lives and took inspired actions to end up where we are today (so yes, maybe manifesting seems to be doing something here). Kick your feet back and enjoy the latest and greatest with Julia Martin.
    What we’re talking about…
    Julia’s journey in the corporate world to becoming a manifestation and business coach  A three year manifesto life hack (how I started manifesting without even realizing it) The overwhelming amount of scientific evidence that shows the impact of manifesting for oneself What manifestation is and what it is not  The fulfillment you can find in a life you love My manifestation journey in finding a home How a few simple steps in the process of manifestation can help you better understand what you want and how to achieve that ambition  Links Mentioned

    Make This "Good List" To Become A Better Parent & Partner

    Make This "Good List" To Become A Better Parent & Partner

    Today we are getting personal. We begin with the stresses of being a parent — especially on Halloween night. In the midst of all this commotion, sometimes we forget the impact of our own words. I reflect on my own love language of words of affirmation and how negative words carry more weight than positive ones. The goal after listening to this episode: start making a “good list” for yourself of all the things you are proud of. 
    What we’re talking about: 
    Once upon a Halloween night filled with sugar induced five-year-olds Our tendencies to focus on the negatives  The weight of negative versus positive words Making more conscious decisions to be intentional with positive words Creating a “good list” for all the things we are proud of ourselves/kiddos/partner/loved ones for doing I started doing this for my five year old and read it to her at bed time  Another anecdote (At home date recommendation: bottle of wine and We’re Not Really Strangers card game) of the impact of our words Importance of love languages in how we accept and receive love  Links Mentioned

    Patience vs. Perseverance (The #1 Skill You Need To Work On)

    Patience vs. Perseverance (The #1 Skill You Need To Work On)

    Let’s debrief: the pandemic world has been hard. This week I want to focus on what I often have to remind myself: patience. No matter if it’s with your business, kids, partner, etc. we need to remember we are in this for the long game. For those words of affirmation listeners keep reminding yourself: patience sweet *insert your name*, patience. 
    What we’re talking about…
    The changes we’ve had in our lives as the world teeters on pandemic restrictions and back to “normal” All the stress and frustration that can go along with this I continue my endless search for a house (this is where I’m working on patience) Committing to the long game in life, no matter what that may be Letting go of the expectation of getting things done right Learning to be patient with yourself  LINKS

I am so glad I listened to this because this is an episode every entrepreneur should hear regardless of what stage or “phase” of the business they are in. Foundation and systems are the things that get you from A to B. But we all get too stuck with B. And B don’t really happen until A does. Great show!

Pls give your guests the floor

Great topics but the host tends to talk too much. I wish she’d allow her guests more air time
