In a previous life, before coaching, I was working in a full-time job… (video)

In a previous life, before coaching, I was working in a full-time job doing work that I loved, actually. I discovered coaching and began pursuing it as a hobby and had discovered that this is what I was born to do!

Then one day, totally unexpected, I was FIRED from my job. WHAT THE ?!?!?! This type-A, overachiever, perfectionist (back then anyways) does not get fired. That doesn’t happen to me! I went through so many emotions in that moment all at once. I was totally shocked, couldn’t believe it. Then I hit the pissed stage, then the embarrassed stage kicked in and I finally landed in fear. In a matter of moments, I actually thought I would be homeless, dying in a gutter, with no food and no clothes… In that moment, that’s how real my fear made everything feel.

After calling a close girlfriend and totally freaking out about what happened to me, she asked me “what’s the worst thing that could happen?!” After barking back at her “didn’t you hear me? I said I’m gonna be homeless, dead in a gutter with no clothes and no food!” She said “Good! I have an extra bedroom, we wear the same size clothes and I have more food in my pantry than I can eat.” What else are you worried about?”

And just like that, my fear dissipated. I faced my worst nightmare head on. And I realized that I was a smart woman, totally capable of whatever I put my mind to and I realized that while this was a total shock, it would not be the end of me. I realized that I could come out of this any way I wanted to.

And in that moment, I made a decision. I decided that rather than go get another job I would turn my hobby of coaching into a business. After all, this was my new found calling!

The only problem was I had NO experience in starting a business! I had only ever been an employee. I had no idea where to even begin, what to do or how to get started. I just knew I did NOT want to get a job and I needed to make money quickly.

And because I was also recently divorced at the time and on my own for the very first time in my life, I had to work smarter, not harder to get my business doing!

I became obsessed with learning everything that needed to be in place behind the scenes of my coaching business so it was organized and streamlined in advance before I dared to even try to get clients. I knew that when someone said YES to hiring me, I wanted to be 100% confident I could deliver on what I promised and I wanted to make sure nothing slipped through the cracks; after all, folks were going to be paying me for my services!

And because my super power is organization and efficiency (really, I geek out over this), it wasn’t too long before I had my entire business set up and launched. And within six months I had a full practice of 18 full-paying clients and was on my way to making over $50k in my first year… and I was having a blast and I hadn’t even finished my coach training.

Real coaches getting real results… will you be the next success story? (video)

Let’s rewind back to 2003. I was working in my full-time job doing work that I loved, actually. I discovered coaching and began pursuing it as a hobby outside of my job and had discovered that this is what I was born to do!

Then one day, totally unexpected, I was FIRED from my job. WHAT THE ?!?!?! This type-A, overachiever, perfectionist (back then anyways) does not get fired. That doesn’t happen to me! I went through so many emotions in that moment all at once. I was totally shocked, couldn’t believe it. Then I hit the pissed stage, then the embarrassed stage kicked in and I finally landed in fear.

This Webinar Will Make You Rethink Automating Your Coaching Business (video)

My dad, my greatest hero, become my biggest naysayer. I’ll never forget that lunch. It was one of the most gut-wrenching days of my early career. I was brand new in my business and the steady revenue hadn’t kicked in yet. I had expenses and my debt was increasing quickly. But I just knew this business was going to work!

At lunch one day I was talking with my father (who is one of the most amazing men I know) and was sharing my financial struggles with him. And he, as only a dad can do, tilted his glasses to the tip of his nose, peered over the top of the rims and said to me “Melinda, it’s simple. Your outgo is more than your income. You just need to get a job.” UGH! Did he really just say that to me?!?! I mean my greatest hero, my raving fan, my true believer…. Really? He just stopped believing in me and my dreams?? Yep, he sure did! It was like a knife in my heart slicing out my dreams. Now, my father, at the time, meant that in deep love and in support of making sure I was taking care of myself while pursuing my dreams, but I couldn’t hear that until the gift of hindsight had kicked in. That day at lunch, when those words came from my dad’s mouth, the only thing I heard was “give up on your dream Melinda, it’s no use.” I stood up from the table and with every ounce I had in me I looked at my dad, said a few choice swear words and said to him “oh yeah, watch this!” In the coming months, I made darn sure I had my stuff together in the back end of my business so there was no way I was going to fail. Failure was not an option!

And I knew that to the degree I had my back end set up, the systems and processes in place, the way I set myself up to support my clients so I could over-deliver, making sure I had the mechanisms in place to make it easy to grow my list by leaps and bounds (not just by one or two here and there) … I knew that to the degree I had systems and an infrastructure in place to support everything necessary to grow my list, get clients and make money, that I would experience that same degree of success! While most of my colleagues were focusing on the latest marketing fad, I was focusing on the back end of my business being so organized, streamlined and automated that it didn’t require much of my time to handle it all so I could eventually spend more focusing on marketing and working with my clients – instead of like my colleagues, scrambling around behind the scenes, highly stressed trying to figure out how to make it all happen. I had already done all that so when I did start marketing, it was like a machine of endless referrals and clients! And in a few short months I had a full practice of 18 paying clients and raving fans that would then refer me tons of new clients into the months and years to come! Because I spent just a bit of time getting my stuff organized behind the scenes I was confident I could deliver what I was promising and powerfully serving my clients to get outrageous results. And this, this made all the difference in the months and years to come.

Now I can say thank you to my dad… for in that moment when he, out of deep love, became my greatest naysayer, he became my greatest motivating factor! And because of that single moment in history, and me taking on the challenge, my business is now well beyond the 7-figure mark and I’m supporting thousands of other coaches to do the same!

This Roadmap Will Help You Launch Your Business… (video)

You know that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach when you get that letter that starts with “We regret to inform you that we are unable to offer you….” Maybe you don’t. But I sure do! It happened when I applied to college! I wanted to double major in Interior Design and Music so this particular school was perfect for me!

I was PISSED when I got that letter and rejected me! I was an ideal candidate! Everything about my application was spot on… except for me SAT scores (another embarrassing story for a different post). Other than that, there was no reason they shouldn’t have accepted me. Other friends got accepted that had worse scores than me and a lot less on their college resume! I couldn’t believe it!

Anytime I saw someone wearing a sweatshirt from that college or their car had a bumper sticker from that college I always thought to myself “What do they have that I don’t? They don’t want it as bad as me! It’s not FAIR!!!”

Oh, I was pissed!

That rejection didn’t stop me! It became my rocket fuel for my desire! My desire WAS going to become a reality!!!

I found out the exact pieces I needed to have in place so I could transfer in… and for the next two years, at a local private college, I became persistent and excelled in implementing those precise steps, it caused me to do even better, honing my skills and talents. I rose to the occasion, took persistent and took consistent action.

My dream may have been delayed by 2 years, but I made it… with flying colors! I transferred to the college of my dreams and the final 3 years of school were the best years ever! And I became an even better version of myself in the process.

Even if it feels like your dream is not unfolding like you thought or your dream seems to be shut down, DON’T GIVE UP!!

Keep taking guided, consistent action. Find out what it takes to make your dream a reality and then commit to doing it! Sometimes a “NO” is just an invitation from the Universe for you to say a bigger, louder YES!

That’s why I’ve put together The Coaching Business Roadmap To Success. A complimentary resource with the exact pieces and the precise sequence to set up your entire coaching business – from start to finish! Now you can simply take each step and turn your dream into a reality!
