Rachel Dungan, The Pharmacist Coach, was working 80-hour weeks, spending more than 80% of her time doing back-end administration tasks—manually. This mother of three small children was chronically stressed, burning the candle at both ends: she stayed up late to work, and was cranky and slow moving in the mornings.
She knew she needed to generate more business in order for her coaching company to be financially sustainable. But she also felt completely overwhelmed with the day-to-day running of the business, and therefore, she wasn’t confident about seeking new clients.
Rachel’s coaching business, which at one point felt like a valuable way to create income, now felt like a slog! Yet, opportunity after opportunity slipped through the cracks as she did her best to get through each day.
She knew she needed to find a way to get Pareto’s 80/20 rule working in her favor—so she could do the most valuable work to generate the majority of her income and impact. She knew that would empower her to feel organized, in control, and financially secure, while creating business and family life that enabled her to live what she coaches: the excellent management of health and well-being.
And she knew the best way to do that was to implement an integrated, online business solution that helped her find and deliver value to her clients. She spent a year working with IT developers to piece together such a solution, but it just didn’t work seamlessly.
That’s when Rachel discovered The Coaches Console and Easy Breezy Coaching Business Bootcamp.
At the time, she had no list, sales pages, online products, automated calendar, client record system, email autoresponders, analytics, or online payment options.
What she did have, she said, was a dizzying array of Dropbox files with lots of one-off intellectual property, adding very little value to anyone she worked with.
Now, she has a list of more than 2000 prospects, two joint venture partners, 117 buyers, and several online programs (both self-study and live). She’s created a 12-month online medical coaching learning community, and she’s repurposed her flagship program for online delivery to complement face-to-face delivery.
Since using TCC to implement what she learned in Bootcamp, Rachel has transitioned from employee, to contract work, to full-time business owner.
She feels a strong sense of achievement, and is confident that her business is viable—that it can be financially solvent while making the positive impact about which she’s so passionate.
And because she utilizes TCC to handle all those once-overwhelming details, Rachel is now able to focus only on the important items, putting Pareto’s rule to work!
Personally, Rachel feels more in control, less overwhelmed, and handling the challenges of entrepreneurship and motherhood with increased energy and enthusiasm.
Rachel said that for coaches who aspire to convert coaching into a sustainable business, the simplest and most effective way is to use a proven system, specifically designed for coaches—such as Easy Breezy Coaching Business Bootcamp and TCC.
It’s important to spend time laying the foundation, and it takes effort and dedication to learn the ropes and implement the steps, she said. But it’s worth it to know you’re doing the right things in the right order to get the results you want!
And when you do run into roadblocks, she said, it’s priceless to know support is out there, from TCC co-founders Melinda and Kate to the community of coaches traveling the same path.
