Some no longer did based on my evolving financial coaching business or the kinds of clients I and my team wanted to serve. Here are some ways you can make money as a financial coach and how we’ve incorporated them into our business - or seen them incorporated into other [...]

When is a Business Opportunity Worth Your Time?

By |2020-04-27T19:30:14+00:00April 27th, 2020|

If you're new to financial coaching, most business opportunities are going to be worth your time. Earlier on in my career, I was approached by a company and asked to submit a bid for a corporate wellness program. Had I run a corporate wellness program before? No. Did I question whether I should submit a bid for this? Yes. Did I submit one anyway? Absolutely. That business opportunity was a big unknown at the time. The things that I would need to ensure the opportunity was successful, I didn’t have in place when I submitted the bid. But I trusted [...]

Hiring Your First Assistant

By |2020-03-25T18:47:26+00:00February 29th, 2020|

How do you hire your first assistant for your financial coaching business? Hiring your first support person or assistant, I believe, is a much harder step to take in your business than launching it. It’s hard for a lot of reasons. Often times, the business owner is busy doing all the things. And there’s value in doing things when you first start. You learn what you like and don’t like. You learn how to put together a system or a workflow or a client journey if you’ve yet to do that previously. You learn the ins and outs of things [...]

Finding and Growing Referral Partnerships as a Financial Coach

By |2020-02-28T19:26:37+00:00February 28th, 2020|

Word-of-mouth is a terrific form of advertising for your financial coaching business. When your friend or even a friend-of-a-friend makes a recommendation about anything from their favorite shampoo to the next great restaurant, you’re more than likely going to remember it and are probably more likely to try it than you would have without that endorsement.  That’s why referrals are one of the most effective tools for building your financial coaching business. Having referral partners is like having a built-in sales team that already knows who your potential clients are and what you do. It’s a match made is business-development [...]
