Let’s Talk About Money

Coaches both love and hate to talk about money. 

Everywhere you look online, coaches are repping their 5 or 6 or 7 figure businesses (though they rarely talk about profit). And every coach either seems to be KILLING IT or is totally desperate to make ends meet. And of course, the coaches that are killing it are never you. 

But if you’re going to run a business, money is a thing you’ve got to deal with. Ideally, money can be a thing you can learn to empower, enjoy, and even use to have a more significant impact on the world you live in.

You’re BAD At Hiring Coaches

Here’s what you want when you hire a coach:

  • You want to hire the best coach you can possibly hire. 
  • You don’t want them to cost TOO much

Choosing To Be A Coach

You have to CHOOSE to be a coach.

Around this time of year, I begin to see posts by all my coaching friends about new year’s resolutions, strategic planning, and about creating the best possible year. I see new coaches starting social media challenges and seasoned coaches making bold declarations about acts of recommitment.

And yet for most coaches, this year will be much like the last:

– Sporadic attempts at enrollment
– Signing up for a new online course with high hopes then only watching half the videos
– Hiring a coach you think is excellent only to feel let down when you don’t get the results you want

There’s not a single reason why this happens to so many coaches, but there is one choice that I’ve seen make a big difference: The decision to be a coach.

Making Space for Grief on Holidays


Many people see the holidays as a space for joy, which is a beautiful sentiment and intention. But the holidays are also a space for grief. For some people, the holidays remind them of turmoil and abuse. Having time and space with family wasn’t a blessing but a threat. Read more
