The Coaches Console System Users Feedback…
Coaches Console is a life saver for our coaching team. Before implementing Coaches Console we were limited by the number of clients we could serve and our coaches often felt scattered and overwhelmed. It was difficult to keep all of our coaching notes straight, keep track of client agreements, and to feel fully prepared for each client appointment. Delivering exquisite customer service is one of our top business values. Now that we’ve implemented Coaches Console, our coaches can serve 50 – 60 clients each, effectively, stress-free and with impeccable service.
I’ve known Kate and Melinda personally for many years, and they’re brilliant when it comes to software and marketing. They have high integrity and an unshakable commitment to their clients. I’ve been inside the Coaches Console software and kicked all the tires. I’m convinced that it’s simply the best solution for most coaches. Your other option is to combine a whole bunch of other solutions and try to make them work together. That option is both more expensive and more complicated. I recommend going with Coaches Console.
Coaches Console is a revolutionary resource essential to any serious Coach. The bonus benefit is that this valuable organizational tool is delivered by Kate & Melinda – two high integrity Luminaries with a rare but sincere dedication to and care for all of their clients. Don’t think – jump at the opportunity to work with them!
Easy Breezy Bootcamp lives up to its name. It is Bootcamp because it gives you the structure and support to accomplish far more than you could on your own – and much faster. Easy Breezy? Well, you do have to work, no doubt. But Melinda and Kate give you methodical, bite-sized chunks – plus all the support you need – so that you can do it and do it well. And when you’re finished? Ah – that’s when the back end of coaching becomes easy breezy because so much is automated… so you can focus on what you do best: coaching!

If you want to truly breakthrough to your full potential, it also requires extraordinary organization behind the scenes and these gals at Coaches Console take care of it all in 1 system!
Thank you, Melinda and Kate, for all you do for me and all you do for us. I’m thrilled I went through this course for many reasons including… I’ll know how to promote it even better (more specifically!) next time.
Jory H. Fisher, JD, PCC
Kate & Melinda, participating in Bootcamp has boosted my enthusiasm, self-confidence and commitment to myself and my own business. It’s also helped me with the vital step of ALIGNING MY ACTIONS in a comprehensive way–tactical as well as strategic–like never before. Looking forward to many more months of “being greedy” with y’all!
You guys are truly a “blessing” to the coaching industry! Although I am halfway through my certified coaching training program, because of the Coaches Console Bootcamp, I’m sooo excited, encouraged and ready to evolve as a PHENOMENAL COACH who will be committed to my niche!!! Thank you for lifting me!
With Coaches Console, I know that my business has credibility, longevity and integrity. I am confident now that I can be extraordinarily organized behind the scenes so I can be flexible and very present out in front. Extraordinary. I am SO grateful, and agree, a TERRIFIC investment and feel you will be there going forward. AMAZING TRANSITION! Still more to go, but KNOW I can get there!! Wow!
I woke up this morning (i.e. resurfaced from the depths of oblivion into reality) with a mega breakthrough filtering through to my conscious based on your genius question all those weeks ago ‘What is one piece of super hot wisdom you share with everyone and if you never saw them again you would want them to go away with this nugget’ After all these weeks agonizing over my free gift the structure, content, credibility, functionality, relevance everything and staying stuck with a missing link, it came to me, so simple a theme, an underlying message and yet you could write programs for it. So I am tweaking my report for the last time, delighted now with everything and super confident it will get people to sign up. Can’t wait to post it and see what you think. Just goes to show how bootcamp lessons go on long after it is over! You are just so special bringing out the best in us! Watch this space!
I’m a new coach and a new user of Coaches Console, and I’ve been very pleased with the system. It is wonderful not to have to pay a developer to custom-build these features into my site, and to have access to features I honestly wouldn’t have thought of on my own. So thank you for providing such a useful service. But as much as I like the system, I’m really writing to let you know how absolutely delighted I’ve been with the technical support I’ve received from Marius Chitosca. I’ve had questions almost every day over the past week as I’ve been setting up my system, site interface, and payment options, and Marius has always responded quickly with just the information I’ve needed. Marius’s professionalism, expertise, and helpful friendliness have gotten me off to a great start as a Coaches Console user, and I thought you’d like to know just how much I appreciate the wonderful support I’ve received. So thanks not only for offering such a great system, but for having such a kind and knowledgeable person to help your clients take full advantage of it!
I decided to use the Coaches Console because I wanted one place where I could track everything. I was tired of having one system for a calendar, another system for forms, and then something else to track payments. A big part of my business is information products, so when I saw the shopping cart, I was willing to try it so I could have everything in one place. I am still in the process of figuring out the best way to use it for everything. I have watched CC over the years and I really like the way it is growing. Before stepping out on my own, I spent time doing some IT project management and writing software requirements for users. I really value when systems are developing as a response of their users.
The Coaches Console helps keep me organized and efficient, while presenting a professional, “got it together” image. I get to spend my time on what I do best –helping people know what they want to do with their lives.
Thank you, Coaches Console!!! I just set up and automated ONE YEAR of monthly newsletters. All beautifully laid out, streamlined and branded. Your service is helping me streamline all aspects of my business and I feel like I’m just getting started!! I also imported my entire list from MailChimp with ease and now have everything hubbed in one place, and best of all, AUTOMATED!!! My opt-in is clear and followups automated; my website is fully contained and designed This truly is the greatest gift to the coaching community I’ve come across. And I know I don’t take advantage of 75% of what you have to offer! THANK YOU!!!!!!
Ready2Go Marketing Solutions I’m writing to you because I think you may benefit from a powerful tool that my colleagues Melinda and Kate from The Coaches Console have developed to help you coach more clients and earn more money. This tool is very impressive, very useful and is helping hundreds of other coaches build, grow and manage their businesses. As you probably know, business success doesn’t happen by accident. It comes as a result of leveraging the right strategies, the right systems and tapping into the right support networks. That’s what Coaches Console is all about. The Coaches Console is an automated business management system. I know it has made all the difference for many coaches. The Coaches Console is a household name in the coaching industry. It’s leading edge and well respected.
Kim Claussen – Ready2Go Marketing Solutions
I just want to share what an amazing customer service support you have, specifically, Marius! He has been incredibly helpful as I’m navigating through all the things to learn and master. With his help, I figured out things in a matter of minutes that could take me hours instead. You really have a great team and, combined, with your own webinars and tutorials, this is an awesome system.
You can tell this system was developed by experienced coaches. It meets the coach exactly where they are in their practice and takes the fear out of the business and marketing side of coaching. A must have!
I just want to thank Marius Chitosca for the prompt service response as always! The ticket is solved so I did not want to “re-open it” just to say thanks and add anything to your list because I know you work so hard to respond timely to any issues that come up. Just want to say AGAIN that service with y’all rocks and I so appreciate the entire team and how CC has made my life so much simpler! I can’t imagine trying to start my biz without it.
Cynthia Porter Spradlin
Everything in your Easy Breezy Bootcamp makes me confident that my business launch is finally going to be a reality, not just a thought. I am so glad I waited for this. My timing is perfect. It was the best, most comprehensive coaching program ever… so much more than I expected. Thank you, Melinda and Kate, for always being available and making each one of us feel so special!!!
To the many that are just thinking about signing up with The Coaches Console. DO IT, DO IT NOW. It is not just for coaches. Anyone that is working with a client base will benefit from what The Coaches Console offers. I have been coaching now for 3 years and the clients I had been working with before are always telling me how much they love the new tools I am providing them through The Coaches Console. I am not chasing money anymore; I do not have to go back and forth with emails and calls to schedule and reschedule clients. This has freed me up big time. I love the ongoing support from The Coaches Console. The Tuesday and Thursday calls are wonderful. I do believe this is the tool that will help all of us coaches to take our business to the next level.

VA – Emerging Virtual Assistance As a virtual assistant, my niche is coaches and public speakers. I have found Coaches Console to be a lifesaver in managing my clients’ business. I encourage all my clients to have a Coaches Console account — which they readily do — so that I can effectively and efficiently manage their clients, prospects, invoicing, agreements, communications, and schedule. I believe that any coach who is thinking about working with a virtual assistant should use Coaches Console. I have found that the Console helps to streamline setting up clients and their schedules — which saves me time. The Coaches Console Team is responsive, approachable, and willing to help me solve any issues with my clients’ accounts.
Kim Gray, VA – Emerging Virtual Assistance
Certified Personal Coach, Coaching Institute International I really enjoy using The Coaches Console. My ability to update the display to match my website design and colors has been great. But one of the greatest efficiencies I have discovered is the ability to put all my specialized forms up on the web, organize them by category and then point my clients to the documents section to find the information. They can download that information directly and I do not have to remember if I gave them a form, process or document. If they misplace it, they can log back in and retrieve it. I coach clients worldwide so I really enjoy the fact that I don’t have to keep calculating time zones. My clients can see my availability and schedule themselves directly. There is so much that I really like about The Coaches Console – including the quick responses to my requests for technical assistance. While I am very technically savvy, I found that I don’t need a lot of technical knowledge to leverage the Console in the best way to fit my practice needs.
Cherise Greski-Lesniewicz, CPC
The Coaches Console helps me to better manage my wellness coaching time and simplifies my every day business tasks. Being able to create your own assessment forms and questionnaire is a life saver. I get to ask my clients just the right questions to help them on their quest to a wellness lifestyle. Being able to create your own newsletters, invoices and setting up appointments just to name a few features makes this a complete business solution for life and wellness coaches everywhere. I also love the training calls and webinars, the information provided is so helpful to new and seasoned coaches alike. Definitely one of the best business/client systems I have seen to date, you can be anywhere and still have access to all information being that the system is web based. This system is so easy to use for both clients and coaches alike. Thank you for this must have tool.
The Coaches Console seems to have been custom-made for my business’ needs! It simply has every feature I wanted and more. I travel quite a bit and the system keeps all the information I need extremely handy no matter where I go. This system is simply the best thing since lox and bagels!
Certified Professional Coach & Mediator Gratefully, I found The Coaches Console just as my business was growing beyond where I could manage it “by hand.” All of my clients are impressed by the professional look and ease of use my user interface, and know right up front that my business has credibility, longevity and integrity. I highly recommend this system to any service provider who is serious about their business and needs help managing all the back office
Scott Seagren, CPCC, ACC
Manifesting Possibilities I recommend that all of my clients who are also coaches join Coaches Console immediately – whether they have 1 or 25 clients. Aligning with this system gives you an immediate professional presence in your industry AND sends a clear message to yourself and the Universe that you are up to big things as a coach. I save hours of time using Coaches Console to support my facilitation of tele-seminars. The system allows me to set up separate groups for each class, and have all resources readily available to attach to emails. The customer service is also exemplary – if I ever have a question, it is answered in no time at all with clear, concise direction. Thanks to your entire team for creating a system that is like my own personal assistant, saving me time and money. The additional, free information offered during Tuesdays at 2 and now Thursdays at 3 calls allows me to be on top of the latest happenings in the industry in an easy and convenient way. I especially love the option of listening to the recorded call if I miss the live version.
The Coaches Console has been a God send for me! As a mentor coach specializing in helping launch new coaches into healthy businesses, I can rely on The Coaches Console to support my clients in two powerful ways. First, they have a presence on my site through a “client login” where their vision and intentions are stated and updated. I can serve them first as clients and The Coaches Console deepens the professionalism of my coaching offering. Secondly, I can help them create a support system for their practice, creating a professional foundation for them to focus on attracting their clients. It’s the greatest gift I’ve received since I’ve joined the coaching industry. Thank you Melinda, Kate and Tom!
Life Coach & Retirement Revolutionary Yes, yes, and a resounding yes! I’ve been using Coaches Console since they started. Because I had my own website and all my systems set up already, I used them initially only for tracking my client coaching hours for certification…which by the way is a dream. One click of a button and you have a perfectly formatted report! About a year ago, my VA Donna Gunter convinced me to start using more of the Coaches Console features, and I’m so glad I did. My welcome package and forms, session prep forms, client scheduling, etc. are all on my Coaches Console site (that clients access from the Clients Only section of my own website), and have really streamlined and simplified my client management . My coaching group management has gone from a nightmare to a dream, and I love the ability to communicate with my clients individually or in groups, again, at the click of a button. The best part is that Coaches Console has an awesome customer service team, and they always listen to the needs of their customers and are continually adding new and improved features. I’m a raving fan and recommend Coaches Console without hesitation!
Author, Speaker, Coach, Spiritwalker, Entrepreneur – Founder of Women Of Passionate Purpose I love this system! My clients do too! The Coaches Console is everything I need. It’s at my disposal, on my time table, even from anywhere I might be traveling! I am a professional, and want my clients to experience professionalism from me, they deserve that from me. I like having a place where my clients can go when they need to do a bit more self discovery, some soulful digging into their lives and have a place they can “journal” it out, become more intentional with their life purpose. I have discovery questions for them to ponder, and really get in touch with, they can come back and forth onto the site and fill in the questions. When they do this the system emails me that one of my clients has updated some of their information! I know that this is potentially something to coach around on our next session! I post my homework for the client there. I can take my own personal notes there as well. It has caused me to be able to remember things that I’d forgotten! It’s a life saver for me! This system takes care of my financials, billing/accounting reports, even client birthdays! How great is that! Clients have the ability to re-schedule their appointments where I have open slots available, in a calendar that they can view! It does newsletters… Oh, I could go on and on… You will wonder how you ever ran your coaching practice without it! You will LOVE it!
Kathryn Bonner, CPCC
The Growth Coach I love the system. As a coach, I now have a single place where I can add all of my client notes. Before I had files stuffed in file folders both computer and physical. Now with a touch of a button, I now know what is going on and where my client needs to go next. Hence building my confidence to add more clients without feeling overwhelmed. Additionally, I am receiving very exciting feedback from my clients for both the system and for my services. I have had a good idea that my clients love my services just not to what degree. Recently a new client wrote in her Discover form that her greatest regret would have been not using my services as they have had such a profound impact on her business and life. This is why I got into coaching in the first place! So I now have greater control over my business, my clients see a greater benefit in coaching, and they are able to log in and complete exercises and questions which we both can see. They are better organized and energized and it looks like I spent a small fortune on the platform. What an outstanding product! And by the way I have only been a client for 30 days and you have re-energized me and my clients! Outstanding! I applaud you and your team.
Life Coach I am so glad that I stumbled over The Coaches Console early in my coaching career. The ease of use and the intuitiveness of their system is fantastic. I love how it keeps all things organized in one location. As I grow my business, my clients will be able to access paperwork including invoices via this site. Each client will have a secure logon ID and password so confidentiality is locked in place. Kate was superb at walking me through the system and Melinda did a great job in providing me with references and answering all pre-purchase questions.

Step by Step Coaching I want to coach. I have to run a business so that I get to coach. The Coaches Console makes that part easier! It gives me some structure to follow and fit into so I don’t have to spend so much time and energy figuring out how to run a business. I can concentrate more on coaching, and that is what I love! stepbystep.coachesconsole.com
Chief Innergy Officer and Internationally Certified Coach Thanks for such a speedy response and thanks for being such a customer centric company. Your package has allowed us to grow our business exponentially by making the ‘business” part of coaching so much easier.
Marci S. Moore, ACC
DANCE I am new to The Coaches Console this month and must say that I am so excited to be a part of this fabulous system. Within one week of registering with The Coaches Console, I have a website, clients only area where my clients can access all the necessary documents to get started quickly with our coaching (no more searching through my on-line Word files to find the most current version of my Welcome Packet), and an on-line payment system. My site is professional looking and easy to use (both for me and my clients). I had been looking for a program like this for a long time and even checked out a couple of other programs and am so glad I chose this one. It is simple and intuitive and the personalized support I have gotten from Melinda is incredible! Plus, now I can be anywhere in the world and access my coaching files no matter where I am. This makes maintaining my coaching practice very easy and fun! Thank you!
The Mom Coach; True to You Life Coaching, LLC I just wanted to tell you that I am new to The Coaches Console, and I absolutely love it!!! Before I decided to join your team, I was hesitating about whether or not it was worth the monthly fee I was going to pay. After going through all the training calls and getting my system all set up, I am bubbling over with excitement. It is worth every penny. It makes my coaching practice so much more organized, and I look extremely professional to my clients. I am starting to get feedback from my clients as well, and they really like it. All of the features that this software offers are truly amazing, and I am so glad I decided to come on board. Thank you for thinking of us coaches and creating The Coaches Console.
International Transitions In my opinion, The Coaches Console System is SOOO accessible, I was easily able to listen to the first training course twice, join the second one yesterday, get a question answered with your tech support system, join the Tuesday@2 session, and sign up for session 3 tomorrow!I also went back into the home page and looked at the info demo again and listened to one of the back archived sessions. All of this has really helped reinforce everything. I look forward to tomorrow! This incredible system has soooo much in it, it takes my poor brain multiple messages to begin to take it all in, but you sure do provide the opportunities for that to happen, for which I am totally grateful! I’ve been singing your praises to every coach I know. Thank you so much for filling such a need – this has really helped take away a lot of my fears in trying to start a coaching business! What fun!
Leader’s Edge Coaching Thanks again Melinda for providing such great resources. Although I have a marketing background, I gained some great new ideas from the Tuesday call. I still have a lot to learn about all of the functionality of The Coaches Console, but already am using it and finding new things to simplify my business operations. I am really happy with the console and believe it provides me a very reasonably priced CRM application. I would not currently be able to afford some of the CRM’s out there and would still have to do my own customization…you have done that for me with the console and made It affordable even for new coaches. Thanks so much.
Leslie Hagerich Syring, CTACC
Personal Development Consultant I am in love with The Coaches Console software! You all have created a wonderful product and I see great potential for its use in my practice. It is rare to find such obvious commitment to quality, ease of use, and overall excellence in design in today’s rush-to–market-damn-the-quality-world, which makes your offering stand out all the more.
James Frazier, MA
White Forest Counseling Services Our experience using Coaches Console has been entirely positive thus far. The program has helped to bring our online practice to life by providing a secure and user-friendly interface that makes client management a breeze. Less time focused on online business management has translated into more time and energy devoted to our clients.
Nicole & Chris Auer, M.A.
A to Z Proposals Plus, Inc. I really hesitated in the beginning, first with using The Coaches Console and later with joining the Business Success Inner Circle. My finances were a little tight. But, I was curious and also searching for help. You stated that The Coaches Console would make it easier to manage my clients and the support from the Inner Circle session will help me to increase my income; and it did! The Coaches Console provided an excellent management tool and the Inner Circle gave me the support to structure my coaching business. Thank you so much!
Lifecoach 101 Australia The Console is a BRILLIANT concept for people like me who LOATHE paperwork and detail. The service you provide is also fabulous. Such a joy in todays fast paced serviceless (is that a word?) world.
Using The Coaches Console is like having your own virtual assistant for just a few dollars a month! It has made running my coaching business so smooth and easy by cutting time and energy out of the intake process, scheduling, tracking my hours and so much more. Now I can focus on clients, marketing and creating programs that serve more people and make me more money. And since I’ve hired my own VA, she gets to use this fabulous system too!
Courtney Parks, MA, CPCC
Personal Financial Coach My clients are giving rave reviews about The Coaches Console. I would
often forget to send client notes and now with the new system I can send out client notes in 5 minutes just after completing each session. This has taken communication with all my clients to a refreshingly new level.
Prior to bootcamp, I needed momentum in my business, but I wasn’t ready for a whole new website. I was completely overwhelmed with developing my global versus local program ideas, and deciding my Niche. I was busy being careful in my business and forcing myself to use what I had, but I couldn’t move forward without new web based tools. I knew it would soon be costing me clients and if not solved, might cost me my reputation. Easy Breezy Bootcamp had the tools I needed and ALSO I was able to spend 9 weeks learning what to do. I received BOTH the training and the system. Now that bootcamp has ended; I have my first client, my free gift and autoresponders are created and working and I feel confident! I’m no longer just talking about it, I’m doing it! By being in bootcamp I found all the resources and even moved faster when I needed to get ready for an important event.

I recently had the chance to experience what it’s like to be a superstar with adoring fans, and just as importantly, the benefit of having all my prospects and contacts uploaded into The Coaching Console system and a thank-you email prepared before giving a talk. If you do a great talk, which I did yesterday, the following day you’ll have to deal with your adoring fans. They’ll be phoning you, emailing you, texting you, messaging you, sending you pictures from the event, and inviting you to speak at their events or attending their networking breakfasts. People from other organizations will see your speaking and the great reviews you’re getting, and they’ll want to brainstorm with you or become a referral or joint venture partner. Suddenly, one speaking engagement turns into three. You will be so busy in the swirl that you won’t eat breakfast until 3 p.m., you’ll coach until 5 p.m. and then you’ll attend another networking event. The new clients you’ve enrolled will have already logged into your Coaches Console and filled out their forms, raring to go while you’re out drumming up more business. The Coaches Console keeps you organized during this busy time, and keeps all the details in order, from new contacts to prospects to clients to scheduling. What was it you guys said about choosing a marketing strategy you love? For me, this is it – and The Coaches Console gives me exactly what I need to make it happen.
The Easy Breezy Coaching Business Bootcamp was the very best thing I have invested in (aside from the console itself). In this action packed, content rich, step by step programme I was guided through to having my coaching business up and running in a matter of just over 2 months. From standing start to being super clear on my business model and therefore my priority strategies, right through to developing every stage of my marketing funnel. I knew it would be good but I had no idea HOW good! I have been able to communicate with prospects in a far more compelling and powerful way as a result.Before bootcamp was over I had already signed up a client to my highest level signature coaching package, grown my list considerably, developed a number of coaching products and services and executed a series of campaigns which I am benefiting from to this day. All with the back up of a superb system that allows me do deliver exquisite client support every single time. The feedback from my clients is so overwhelmingly positive because I get to focus 100% on them and helping them achieve their desired results. Safe in the knowledge that Melinda and Kate (and the rest of the bootcampers) have my back. Time after time exceeding my expectations and making it super easy to do even the ‘boring bits’.
[…] Enter Boot Camp. As good as the Coaches’ Console is, it’s made much better with Bootcamp. It is as if Melinda and Kate have your hand and are cheering you on. Of course, there’s the Bootcamp Facebook group too, which adds to a feeling of community. Although I could not attend each Bootcamp Live Session, I made them up when I could, on MY schedule. They assigned Homework which is critical. Melinda and Kate have a good sense of “when to push” and “when to pull back” as coaches. I especially appreciated the Live Call from Kate, which I did not expect, and was packed with valuable input. Bootcamp was offered as complimentary to the Console System, but I would not really suggest buying the Console without Bootcamp.
Before I signed up for The Coaches Console, I was excited about getting my unique services and offers out into the world but didn’t have the systems and organization to get it done. I love TCC’s all-in-one streamlined features while Kate and Melinda’s awesome leadership in the Easy Breezy Bootcamp gave me the momentum to get my online marketing in gear. Also, since excellent client care is a priority for me, I was thrilled to see how much support my clients receive through the system. I deeply appreciate the tools, knowledge, and support I’ve received from The Coaches Console, and I’m looking forward to being able to support my clients even more as a result!

I took Coaches Console Bootcamp because I needed to get back on track, and learn V3 after a very difficult summer and family loss. Melinda and Kate are SO upbeat they immediately helped renew my energy. I was on super overwhelm, but every week they just calmly and clearly kept me moving. Today I have launched a new program, scheduled monthly free workshops, and have the pieces in place to steadily grow my online business. This is not just a Bootcamp about a Website. Melinda and Kate are doing so much business coaching on networking, marketing, branding, communicating via email and newsletters. The value is mind-blowing. These women demonstrate what they mean by remaining down to earth, going through their own human challenges – while keeping their business on track. Coaches Console is a Ferrari and Melinda and Kate are the real deal. Let them put you in the drivers seat!
Karen “KC” Carlson
[…] Last year I went through a program on how to develop a premium package. My next step was to upgrade my website and automate the process of delivering value and service to my clients and be highly professional. Fortunately I was referred to Coaches Console which offered everything I was looking for and much more. If you are a new coach, investing in Coaches Console will save you tons of time, energy and money. I am too embarrassed to share how much I’ve paid to have websites build that don’t compare with Coaches Console. You will also learn valuable information regarding marketing and getting clients that I paid thousands of dollars to get. If on the other hand, you are a seasoned coach but don’t have all the back office programs such as a calendar, a way for your clients to sign their agreements, automated e-mails reminders for client appointments, auto-responders, etc. – you too will love Coaches Console. To implement Coaches Console, they offer a comprehensive Bootcamp training with plenty of support. It will take time and energy which will be well worth it!
After researching a variety of systems available for coaches, I was fortunate to find Coaches Console. It serves my clients and me well through its multi-functional capabilities and I discover new functions almost every day. Additionally, I’m able to deliver my custom online interactive video classroom through the system. So, the system looks great, but can be daunting. No worries, Kate and Melinda have created a complete 10-week course called Bootcamp that is reason enough to use Coaches Console. Not only did they teach us how to use the system efficiently, but also they were overly generous in sharing tips of the trade, best coaching practices, and good solid business advice. Even now that Bootcamp is over, they provide multiple avenues for getting advice and technical support. It takes a lot to impress me these days—and Coaches Console has done it. Well done, keep up the good work. I plan on being around for a long time.
I stumbled across Coaches Console on line by accident. It looked interesting so I decided to explore a bit more. That is when I found the Boot Camp offer. So Boot Camp was awesome for me for a number of really practical reasons:
- The pricing was so attractive that it would have been silly not to do – it was just too good to pass on.
- The camp itself helped me out a ton each week, because it made it easy for me to get things done and get my CC system all set up. Because I was doing the Boot Camp I tried really hard every week to get all of the suggested actions completed. Left to my own devices and without the structure of Boot Camp it would have taken me much longer to get my system set up.
- Having the weekly action item summaries that were published right after each Boot Camp session really helped me to prioritize my CC activities and to just work through it a bit at a time and to avoid overwhelm.
- Access to the session videos was/is invaluable. I use them to go back and review how to get around in my system and how to specifically set up things that I don’t have up and going yet. It is a huge plus that the videos are available for an extended period of time after the Boot Camp is done. They are a very helpful resource.
- The fact that Kate and Melinda modeled the use of the CC System as they interacted with us through out Boot Camp was also a big help because it allowed me to see the possibilities and experience CC as an end user.
So my investment of time and money in Boot Camp was an investment well made. It helped me to get in action, stay in action, and prioritize my actions all of which have helped to move my coaching practice forward in a big way.
Just got back from my BNI meeting! My 50-second connection conversation went off without a hitch, and I was complimented several times for my energy and preparedness. Because I live in a smaller town, I’m considering attending a BNI meeting in a larger city next time, although I understand from my conversations with other TCC members that the smaller BNI meetings are a great launch pad for growing my business. More than anything, after what I’ve learned in TCC, this is all coming together! How exciting! Yay!
I adore Kate’s and Melinda’s unshakable commitment. They out delivered all software programs that I’ve reviewed in terms of cost, simplicity, comprehensiveness, and user-friendliness. You see, I was looking for ways to best support a higher number of clients and I wasn’t ready to hire a team to help me with that. Creating an online store front with WordPress could have been a good first step but was insufficient. In attempt to clarify my roadmap for expanding my business, I talked to seasoned coaches and I asked myself questions like the following: * What about a back office to manage client communication such as appointments, invoices, and agreements? * How do I stay top-of-mind with prospects? * How do I communicate with clients without being burdensome? * How do I handle online payments? * What is a platform for creating self-serve products? * How do I integrate a contact management database into what I’m doing? This could all be done in piecemeal fashion but I wasn’t thrilled about it. The seasoned coaches were all using powerful platforms such as InfusionSoft and Ontraport but that required a team of experts to manage and the cost was unjustifiable for the level of my business. I procrastinated until I discovered The Coaches Console as a great solution. The software did everything I was looking for and the training and support team at The Coaches Console were exquisitely thorough, responsive, and caring. The Easy Breezy Bootcamp wasn’t only about training to use the software, it really inspired me and got me unstuck. Their training, accountability structure, and playfulness enabled me to build momentum and create follow through. Their closed-group Facebook community provided another sounding board for ideas and review as they had certified virtual assistants and other experts contributing. If your coaching business isn’t online yet then it needs to be and it needs to be professional. The Coaches Console will get you there in a low cost, timely, and playful manner.

I was one of those, who believed, if you build it they will come. […] Then my path opened when I heard Melinda on a free webcast promising CC could address my concerns, give me the tools and means, and through boot-camp would hold my hand and walk me through the maze.It was a gigantic leap of faith. Financially it was a stretch. I had to overcome my fears of being scammed and trust my inner guidance that this felt right. I had to move past my fears of marketing and technology, and that fearful feeling within that I couldn’t do it. Coaches Console Bootcamp delivered and gave me even more:
- Coaches Console held my hand and walked me through the maze. And they are still there for me. They made it feel safe to ask ignorant and stupid questions. I freely asked questions on technology, marketing, and websites. Kate and Melinda offered up tutorials and needed encouragement and support, in their weekly live sessions. They gave us incremental steps broken down and mapped out in sequential and purposeful ways. I so needed that! VA’s, a support group, and archived materials and experts gave a further layer of rich support.
- CC gave me the wisdom and support to say no to the dabbler and create longer term packages with a higher price tag. With the CC system I can deliver exquisite client support in-between sessions. Clients are committing the time and money for the changes they desire, and changes are happening in bigger more rapid ways. The higher prices are a bargain; and the longer term packages are blessing me with a more consistent flow of income. Kate’s marketing videos helped a lot. Marketing feels softer now, I’m still on the front side of the learning curve, but I now have a direction! I have picked marketing channels that feel in alignment with my desires to empower, uplift and have fun. And I’m getting some results. Then add in the tools of the Opt-in, Newsletter, Contact List and AR, it has been life changing for me, with a new level of professionalism and tools for expansion and growth.
Thank you Coaches Console for this valuable service and product you have created and for showing me the path and the way.
I have long (years) looked for someone who has integrated and customised the plethora of technology MUST have’s required to run an online coaching and adult education business that provides impeccable service to clients, and is not a complete overwhelm for the business owner to manage. The idea of having to immerse myself in a bunch of different programmes all requiring a headful of how to operate them, discouraged me from truly entering the online space, despite being very good at delivering my work online. The Coaches Console provides me with simplicity and integration I was looking for. I could focus on the message I wished to communicate, and rely on the TCC team to provide the platform for getting it out into the world. Easy Breezy Boot Camp provided a systematic induction, education, and implementation system that both held my hand all along the way, as well as encouraged me to sprint when I’d got off track or delayed. This sets EB BC apart from other online offerings. Too often programmes like this deliver on their promises, only for those who get going well, and stay on track. Easy Breezy Boot Camp took my needs seriously, responding to what I needed, when I needed it on my learning journey. I experienced a bespoke rather than a on-size-fits-all approach. I was very impressed by the way Melinda and Kate set the bar at the level we needed in order to succeed in the online space, yet also provided the support to keep us encouraged to tackle the learning curve. It was steep! It was matched by the potency of their special ingredient. The special ingredient of providing both a stable, always accessible series of videos and handouts, together with a hugely resourceful team of Certified VAs who respond swiftly to specific needs. This blend evaporated the technology overwhelm crises, turning them from daunting to do-able, within moments. The clarity of what to do, how to do, and when to do it provided a containing structure. This allowed my creativity to show up in ways, that also got a website done. Not for the sake of having a pretty online presence, but rather as the front end of a client service delivery system. I still don’t enthuse about technology but I do feel excited and confident that at last I can work in the online space in a way that works for me and provides high quality to my clients.

I just converted to V3– YEA BABY! Love it already and just looking it through. Love how you have streamlined it and updated it all. Looks slick. From my software background – I see the effort and work you put into this. Great job. Also wanted you to know that in 2015 I mentioned my goal was to double my business – and I did. I hit the 100k mark and it feels amazing. Only had word of mouth marketing – excited to exploit other marketing in 2016. This year my goal is to double my business again (big hairy audacious goal) and it feels great to have Coaches Console as part of my “team”. Thanks again for a great system that has enabled me to grow my business quickly and to have software updates for my next steps and planned growth. Nice that this tool is “growing with me”. Hugs from Georgia!!”
This product is the greatest ever created! From the platform, to the ease of use, to the support, it is amazing. I finally feel I can be the coach I am meant to be. I have everything done already: my website, my free gift, as well and an email marketing funnel that leads from my free gift to the new product I created. Now I am going to launch and start advertising on Facebook … and I’m looking forward to being a part of The Coaches Console for the rest of my life. You folks have really nailed it and I feel very blessed that you have.

I confess: I have had the TCC software for about a year, but I did not take or make the time to attend the bootcamp sessions live, and I was sporadic about listening to the replays. The truth is that I had not committed to myself or to investing the time to learn to use my TCC system. I’m in a different place now, and I just listened to my first live training call with you. It was great—the pace was perfect and you walked through examples that were so relevant. I saw so many tools that I already have in my TCC system … tools I may have otherwise spent time and money on, needlessly by implementing them through third-party programs. TCC is like a Christmas present that has been sitting under the tree, unwrapped.
I just have to say that I love, love, love my Coaches Console system. I specifically love that my coaching clients complete and send me their pre call prep form – this makes our coaching sessions so much better and I love that my clients have embraced the process and complete Post Session Recap forms. The best thing is that this is all automated and it serves me and serves my clients. I have had coaching clients all morning and just feel like doing a happy dance about my Coaches Console System.
I would like to thank you for the December 20 webinar. I just watched it, and as a result, I created a fabulous form for waving good-bye to 2017 and embracing 2018! Now I’m sending it out, via the client log, to re-engage all my active clients. I completed it myself, and found it really beneficial because I hadn’t made time yet to reflect on the past year (as I’d done the two years prior). I hope my clients find it as beneficial as I did. Also today, I learned how to organize forms into subfolders—as ever, the help section was completely clear and easy. Thank you so much for making The Coaches Console perfect!
