011 Turning Pro | When to say ‘No’ to that client

 

What if we told you that you can turn people AWAY and make MORE money in the process? If you are a coach that is taking on every single client that comes your way, there is a good chance you are doing one or two of these people a disservice.

What do we mean by this?

If you have even one client that makes you drag your feet in the morning you could be doing a better job.

In this episode we discuss how it is possible to be both effective for, and completely fulfilled by, your clients. Larry and Dr. Sean breakdown when and why it is essential to say ‘No’ to a client that is not a good fit. We discuss creating your ideal client, building trust and negotiating power by being transparent and when you should refer to another coach.

If you truly want to help everybody you meet, get ready to expose yourself and turn some people away!

Are you someone who has been day dreaming of leaving your 9-to-5 for a career path blazed by your passion? 

Do you find yourself working for someone but thinking to yourself… ‘I could do this better’?

Are you wondering how to know when it's time to leave your safe job for the uncertain future of a potential career that you would love?

009 Turning Pro | How to Sell an Idea to Your Boss

Get the podcast here

Are you a coach who constantly comes up with great ideas?

This is something that we face with many coaches 

What do we do when a coach has an idea but it gets turned down by the biz owner?

How can a staff member successfully present something to a biz owner?

How do we qualify a good idea from a bad one?

How do we come up with a way to execute it?

What you likely didn’t do:

Demonstrate the work you’ve done

Treat it like a business meeting (not approaching them in the hallway)

Provide context to your understanding of the risk

Are you a coach who is wearing multiple hats at your gym in order to make ends meet? Does your paycheck look like a menu of miscellaneous duties adding up to create a dollar amount that still leaves you barely scraping by?
