I see a lot of new health coaches trying to reinvent the wheel. I also see new coaches trying so hard to be everything to their clients that they forget that the only thing they have to be is themselves. This is the quickest way to burn out in two years or less of graduating. When this happens, those same coaches will complain that they wasted their money and no one wants to work with them.
What I really hear is that no one wants to be saved. Which is true. You're not here to save the world. You're hear to share your gifts and serve your clients through the profession of health coaching.
If you're wondering what a Lexus or a Camry have to do with health coaching, take a listen. Sometimes, you have to use something that sounds unrelatable or even ridiculous to drive a point home.
Cars all have the same purpose -- to help you get from point A to point B. Everything else is a bonus. If all cars do the same thing, why do we have so many choices? And why do people choose certain cars over others?
After you graduate from your health coaching program, you may feel like you don't know enough or that you'll need to pursue advanced or specialized training before you can feel confident in your coaching. I invite you to hold off on that and figure out how to get the most from your existing training before you make another investment.
With more than ten years in the health coaching profession, I've observed the evolution of the industry and the changes in marketing and trends around how to get clients and make money coaching.
Your health coaching practice is unique to your personal and professional desires, so don't compare what you're doing or want to be doing with what others are doing.
