3 Ways to Increase Your Time Freedom As a Coach

If you want more time freedom, more income, and the ability to make a greater impact as a coach, one of the most important steps you can take is to stop trading hours for dollars.

When you rely exclusively on one-on-one coaching for your income, your ability to help people and make money is limited by the number of hours in a day.

If you aren't actively coaching people, you aren't making money. And if you want to coach more people and make more money, you have to work more hours.

Fortunately, there's a simple way to help MORE people while working fewer hours.

That way is  to coach multiple people at the same time, by creating a group program.

Here are 3 ways you can use a group program to increase your time freedom:

1. Turn your knowledge into a pre-recorded system.

While talking with your clients directly is valuable and important, it's also time-consuming.

So instead of delivering ALL of your knowledge to your clients one person at a time, you can save a lot of time by turning the bulk of it into recordings that people can use without your direct involvement.

That way, people can still receive all the wisdom you have to offer, without you having to personally deliver it every single time.

That doesn't mean you'll never talk to your clients or give them direct, personal support - I'll discuss that in more detail in step 3.

But it does mean that you'll spend less of your personal time on each person, which enables you to serve - and get paid by - more people in fewer hours.

2. Automate the delivery of your knowledge.

When you're choosing the shopping cart software that people use to pay you, pick one that can automatically deliver digital files.

That way, when people purchase your program, the recordings, transcripts, workbooks and other materials are sent to them automatically, so you don't have to personally write an email and upload files every time someone makes a purchase.

3. Structure your coaching calls in a way that frees up your time.

There are two types of coaching calls you can use to supplement your pre-recorded material:

1. One-on-one calls
2. Group calls

If your coaching topic is extremely private or personal, it's better to include a set number of one-on-one calls with your program. That way, your clients will feel more comfortable in sharing their feelings and experiences than they would if they were on a group call.

But if the topic is less personal, and especially if it's business-related, it's better to use a weekly group coaching call.

This way, not only can you save time by supporting everyone in a single call, but your students can also learn from the answers to each other's questions, and they can network and form teams to increase their results.
