Should You Invest in a Done-For-You Program?

Grow Yourself, Grow Your Health Coaching Practice is hosted on the Blubrry platform using the Blubrry WordPress Plugin.

This episode is supported by Thrive Market. Thrive Market makes healthy eating simple and affordable. If you’re thinking of investing in a done-for-you program, you may be interested in becoming an affiliate for a food, health, or wellness brand. While you should use or at least be familiar with the products you promote, especially if you stand to gain financially, affiliate marketing can be a great, low- or no-cost way to grow your health coaching practice.

I’ve partnered with Thrive Market to help my clients make better choices in the kitchen and on the go. To see how I use Thrive Market in my health coaching practice, visit thrive.honeybeewellness.club.

When you’re just starting out as a health coach, it can feel like there’s a million things you have to do before you get clients. I’m not big on worksheets and journaling, but these are some of the tools health coaches use with their clients. Health coaches also employ the use of meal plans and food and lifestyle challenges that run anywhere from three days to six weeks to introduce new prospects to a new way of eating and living. These may be free or offered as part of a paid wellness program that the client does by themselves or as part of a group, and may include pre-recorded and/or live audio, video, and coaching calls.

Over the years, several graduates of health coach training programs have found their sweet spot in designing and selling turn-key wellness programs that includes everything a health coach needs to grow their health coaching practice. Not only do they provide the health coach with the actual program to deliver to the client, but also marketing materials to promote the program, scripts for email and video, a marketing calendar, and other resources to help them create a successful launch.

This is great for the health coach who wants to save time and reach more people, but are they right for you?

Mentioned in this episode: 

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.

Your Professional Health Coach Training Program provided you with a turnkey business model designed to help you start health coaching, but what if you don’t want to be self-employed? What happens next?

What were your takeaways?

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?

I’ve been following Rich Litvin (and Steve Chandler) for a few years now, after my colleague and fellow coach Rasul  sent me a copy of The Prosperous Coach. It’s a book I read and reread over again when I start to fall into stinkin’ thinkin’, as my friend and coach Simone likes to say about self-limiting beliefs and negative self-talk. He sent out an email last week sharing 6 secrets to long-term success as a coach, and a few of them stood out for me.
