What’s it like to work with a business coach

My personal goal as we wrap up the year is to coach 100 female entrepreneurs by 2017.

To carry out this goal, I have opened up my calendar for no-cost coaching sessions.

If you’re on the fence about scheduling your no-cost coaching session, perhaps you never been coached before and don’t know what to expect…

or

maybe you have been coached and it wasn’t the best experience…

Let me answer some common questions for you.

WHY A COACH/CONSULTANT HYBRID?

A coach can get you to a place in your business that you can’t reach on your own…think of it as unlocking your true potential.

A coach-consultant hybrid brings the best of both worlds – motivation, brainstorming, and insight of a coach; and the advice, expertise, and strategy of a consultant.

This is why athletes always have a coach so they don’t become complacent at the level they are at. They push themselves to exceed their individual benchmarks and those of their competitors keeping them “in the game”.

Coaches bring…

  • New viewpoints/perspective – helping you see possibilities that you can’t
  • Challenge – providing insight, igniting ideas and pushing you to be your greater self and help you perform at your peak. You know you have it in you; you simply need to let it out.
  • Objectivity – You’re emotionally invested in your business and the outcome. A coach brings a realistic and constructive viewpoint that you cannot do yourself.
  • Strategy and Experience – helping you avoid mistakes that you might otherwise make costing you time, frustration, and money.
  • Accountability – helping you stay focused on your goal.

WHAT IS YOUR COACHING STYLE?

Handholding is not my thing. I am not good at small talk and am very direct.

Women who work with me must be open for change and willing to put in the work to make it happen.

Picture yourself walking along a high beam, like a gymnast. I can coach you and give you a strategy to get to the other side. You have two choices – you can take the action I suggest and put one foot forward getting to the other side or you can stall, second guess yourself, lose balance and fall onto the mat.

My job is to give you action steps based on where you are and where you want to be. I want to help you pull out your true potential.

You job is to put in the work to make it happen.

WHAT ARE MY CREDENTIALS?

I hold a Master’s degree in Business Administration and have taught business courses at a local college.

I started my first business as a 25 year single mother of two a little over 9 years ago and began coaching female entrepreneurs unofficially throughout the course of two businesses ventures.

In the fall of 2013, I decided to take my gifts, my message and share them with the world as an official business coach-consultant hybrid.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT (ARE YOU TRYING TO SELL ME ANYTHING)?

If you’ve never actually coached with me before – booked a session with me before, let me tell you what you can expect.

This no-cost coaching session is not…I repeat, is NOT…to promote any of my coaching programs.

I do have two very different programs that you will hear about once I have more seats coming available, yes.

At that time, I will extend an opportunity to have a conversation about that program.

You may be familiar with the term, “Discovery Call”. That, no-cost conversation is specifically to learn more about the program, determine if you are a good fit and, if so, reserve your seat.

This is not a “Discovery Call”.

Normally, I do not offer no-cost coaching sessions which is why this is a fantastic opportunity to see what it is like to work with me, learn what it is like to get coached, and to get some answers to questions you have about your business and business strategy. Win-Win!

I want to assure you that I will not tell you to sell your car or house or take out a loan to work with me, starve your family – EVER. I am not that kind of coach.

No, I am not saying that to be funny. I say that because I have had a coach attempt to pressure me into taking up 3 jobs and a hefty loan just to pay for her fees (knowing I was a mom of 3).

That was a complete turn off and not who I am. I know exactly who I work well with and who works well with me.

I only want to work with those who will put in the work and get great results and make me look good – for realz!! LOL!

WHAT ARE MY NEXT STEPS

  • Step 1: Scheduling
    When you click on the link to my calendar (bit.ly/coachwithcrystal), you will be asked to enter your time zone. Select your time zone plus, a time and date that fits your availability.
  • Step 2: Pre-call Questionnaire
    Then, you will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire. This helps me get to know your backstory and the areas you need assistance with so that during our 30 minutes together we can really get down to business
  • Step 3: On our Call
    No time is wasted. This is not a chit-chat conversation. If I feel you are not ready fully prepared (ready to take action) to get the most out of our call, I will make the recommendation to re-schedule. I value your time and my own. I will ask you questions for clarification and help pull out concepts that might be overlooked and then wrap up our call with specific action steps to point you in the direction of your goals.

There is always an opportunity to work with me 1:1 however, I am not pressing that in this no-cost coaching session.

If we are a good fit to work together, then naturally, the conversation may flow towards a follow up phone call or lead directly into how to take the next steps.

If we are not a good fit or if we are not there yet, no pressure – we won’t even talk about it.

WHAT WILL YOU GAIN?

What you will gain from our 30 minute coaching call is solid action steps, solid direction to take you from where you are right now and get you moving toward where you want to be.

In that 30 minutes, we are not working miracles – I cannot cover everything at that time. Although, clients who started out with a 30 minute sesh have been known to have ah-ha moments or that boost of motivation they need to ignite their business engine…

Our 30 minute no-cost coaching session is a sample of what it’s like to work with me.

INVITE A FRIEND

My goal is to coach 100 female entrepreneurs before 2017, help me achieve this goal by forwarding this to a female entrepreneur friend. I have included quick and easy verbiage for you to cut and paste:

“Hey, Crystal is giving away no-cost coaching sessions for a limited time. She works with entrepreneurial women who are stuck and helps them get to their next level of success. You should totally sign up or pass this along to someone you know.”

If you are still on the fence, or if I didn’t answer your specific question, leave it in the comments below.
