Tuesday March 7, 2023
It’s hard to believe I’m approaching the ten-year anniversary since starting my business!

Are Time Concerns Stopping Your Clients from Buying?
Tuesday February 7, 2023
When you’re discussing your offer with a potential client, it’s important to remember that it isn’t just your product or program they’re evaluating. They also need to think about how it fits with the rest of their life, and whether they have the time and desire to implement it. All too often, people buy coaching or training programs, only to fail to set aside the time to actually USE those programs to get results. I've been guilty of that a few times myself, and it's certainly made me more selective about what I... Read More
How to Stop Feeling Guilty About Discussing Your Offer at Networking Events
Tuesday October 4, 2022
I was recently speaking with a person who spent a lot of time at networking events, but sometimes struggled to connect with people because he felt bad about talking about his offer. Guilt around sales is an obstacle many entrepreneurs, including coaches, struggle with. Even if we know, on an intellectual level, that our offer is good, so many of us have been conditioned to feel like we're doing something rude or morally wrong by offering our service and asking to be paid. This can hold us back from starting conversations, and even if... Read More

Tuesday August 2, 2022
Today, I’d like to talk about a mistake some coaches make while creating their offers. This one error can create a load of extra work for you, and can actually scare your clients off of buying your product. That mistake is: overcomplicating things . This is an especially easy trap to fall into if you aren’t confident in your value and the value of your teaching. If you aren’t sure that your coaching is good enough, you might find yourself padding your offer with bonus after bonus (without doing it strategically!) or adding... Read More

Tuesday April 5, 2022
“I try, but I don’t feel I have enough content to provide on a regular basis.” This is a comment I recently saw from a fellow business owner on Facebook.

The Right and Wrong Ways to Differentiate Yourself From Your Competition
Tuesday January 4, 2022
Happy New Year! I hope you're having an amazing start to 2022. As you create, flesh out, or implement your plans for the coming year, one important thing to consider is how you're going to handle situations where your clients are shopping around, or where they've been burned before and they aren't sure how they can tell that you're the real deal. Some people try to steer potential clients away from other coaches in their field by harping on their competitors' bad points, or by trying to claim that they're the only ones getting real...

Will Selling Small Products Help Me Sell High-Ticket Offers?
Tuesday August 3, 2021
"Will selling smaller products help me sell high-ticket offers?" I recently saw this question in a LinkedIn group, and it sparked an interesting discussion about the pros and cons of the strategy. Will the low-ticket item only attract bargain hunters who don't want a high-ticket program? Or will it attract qualified leads who just need a taste of your expertise before they commit to a big purchase? Will buying the lower-priced offer make people more likely to buy your high-ticket package, or will people who buy the smaller item... Read More
