You had a coaching client who too busy with her Lifestyle to write the next chapter of her book.
She couldn’t find the time to get her email opt-in page completed.
Consistently failed to complete her tasks for the week.
Completely forgot to put together her webinar presentation.
It wouldn’t take long before you sat her down for a serious talk about the future of your coaching relationship—and her online business. A coaching client such as that is a frustrating waste of time.
Why, then, do you continue to accept these and other excuses from yourself?
Why is your lack of business development allowed to continue, even when you know how important those tasks are to your future growth?
Now, before you go thinking I’m being way too hard on you, know this: we all struggle with this very issue.
You Are Not Alone
We all put our clients, our family, our friends, and even the neighbor we barely know before ourselves.
But I’m giving you permission right now to stop doing that, and start treating yourself as the VIP you really are.It’s time to put your business growth ahead of that of your clients. Only by doing that will you be able to reach a larger audience, help more people, and achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself.
As a coach, it can be difficult to watch a dream unfulfilled of so many promising entrepreneurs and coaches. Are they just lazy? It’s something worse.
The simplest way to do this is to just make appointments with yourself.
That hour or two you have free on Thursday afternoon? Don’t book a client call in that spot. Book yourself. Mark it on your calendar, and treat it as an unbreakable appointment, just as you would an appointment with a client or your doctor or your accountant.
Spend the time working on the things that are important to the continued growth of your business.
- Develop a new group coaching program
- Write a chapter of your upcoming book
- Write emails for your autoresponder
- Reach out to JV partners
In short, do those things you tell your clients to do—the things your own coach is likely advising. Don’t push them aside for “later” or “after your client work is done.”
