The most life assets are your experiences and knowledge. I have seen a lot of people building a business from scratch just by being good at doing something. Saying that in the coaching industry, there are a lot of people earning tons of money without being a qualified coach. I do not recommend that because I think the journey of taking a qualification within an accredited academy will give you the most amazing experience in your life, personal development.
I’ve invested in a personal development diploma, seminars, courses to do what I do today helping women in business. The best thing to do before starting your journey in a coaching business is thinking of What solution you want to solve.
Have to think about your own business, ask
yourself the following question.
What is the overhaul objective of the business you want to create?
Have a strategic planning before you start doing a lot of things. As a business coach, I see many people making this mistake when they are about to start a business. They jump in and start doing something without actually sitting down and looking at what they want to solve, sell or invest in.
Set Yourself to WIN, so now that you know your main objective to start your business. Let’s explore ‘7 Ways to start a coaching business.’
Get clear on your ideal client, knowing who they are will save time to reach the right people and build your audience and business. Sometimes being generic in the beginning is ok but deciding who you want to serve will save you a lot of frustration.
To ‘rock-solid’ business, you need to create programs to help your potential clients. There is no better way about talking to potential clients about how you work, and why they should hire you, by offering an opportunity to free sessions, webinars.

It’s a great way to grow your audience when I decided to start my podcast channel ‘Kingdom Entrepreneur Community’ I invested to learn about the podcast and this was the best decision because I got an opportunity to reach out to more people and grow my audience in different countries. The result of starting a podcast allowed me to create a networking group.
Be an entrepreneur can be isolated. Collaboration can open doors to a partnership, affiliation as well an option to work together in a team with other entrepreneurs and companies and at the same growing your business and generates multiple income streams. It is important to the partnership to be in line with the vision and mission of what you want to achieve.
This is a powerful and easy way to market your business. The idea is you go to where your target market meets and speak to them. Some events offer an opportunity for you to do an elevator pitch which normally lasts between thirty seconds and two minutes. You will need to go to this type of event, prepared to connect or sell your product or services.
Being part of a community group will provide you with an opportunity to learn, share and connect with other people. There are two types of communities, online and offline. If you are active online, you consider joining an online community, there are a lot of groups on Facebook. The online community is great to exchanging and sharing content and marketing your products/services.
My last tip is to start small, there is a season to everything do not try to do everything at once, remember to be consistent and continue developing yourself. Expect some frustrations; invest in your business, have fun helping people and don’t give up.
