I want to write you an honest letter about “coaching.”
It seems to me that the word has become diluted.
In some forms, coaching has become another way sell a quick fix—to sell the belief that if you pay for an hour of coaching, what you want to be “fixed” will automatically be fixed.
First of all, that’s a lot of pressure on a coach! Second of all, it’s practically impossible.
Anyone who tells you they can transform your life in 60 minutes is selling you a lie.
And, it might not be on purpose. There are people you can spend an hour with who can completely shift your perspective, calling you to your gifts and how to live your life through them, showcase them and offer them up for value in the world…
But that still takes work, time and energy after the session is over.
Someone looking for an hour-long quick fix with no additional input or intention afterward is not going to find what they’re looking for.
Because the only person who can transform your life is you.
And so, in an effort to dive into and evaluate this, I’m putting my one-time coaching and current course on indefinite hold.
I want to offer more value to people, I want to put less pressure on myself, and I want to feel valued in what I’m offering—to the point where I don’t have to constantly market or cobble together one-time clients to make an income for myself.
Besides, for most coaches, a one-hour session isn’t just that hour. It’s at least an hour of preparation beforehand, perhaps sending a client a questionnaire and reviewing it, perhaps more. Then, it’s maybe 30 minutes each way of transit time to and from the session if it’s in-person (a lot of mine are). Then, it’s another hour of writing and curating a follow-up email with action steps, strategies and notes from our session as a keepsake.
That’s four hours minimum of work, not counting the marketing to reach that client.
I also often discount my one-time session coaching (another dilution I’m stopping), depending on the circumstances.
Which often means I end up not feeling valued, because I’m not valuing my work at the level I need to be. And this translates to the client not receiving optimal value either.
This work is valuable, but I have little space to do it if I’m worrying about making a sale every time I send an email.
So. I’m discontinuing my coaching and current course indefinitely.
And I’m offering a one-price package in case you want to grab them before I take them offline on Jan. 1.
One price. Three things. No other options.
- My Manifest Like a Mofo 9-week online course (Cost: $188)
- A 60-min Coaching Session to be used before Jan. 15, 2016 (Cost: $200)
- My Holistic Day Design Productivity Atlas* (Cost: $21)
That totals to $409.
Right now, you can grab all three for $177. You can also gift them to someone.
Here’s the only link to grab the $177 package. That’s my final offer.
Also, if you don’t use your coaching session before Jan. 15, 2016, it will disappear into the ether (which is the same place it will go if you aren’t ready to put in the work after the session is over). :)
(*I am going to keep offering my Holistic Day Design packet and my Revive & Strategize Weekend, but those will be undergoing some major renovations in the coming months.)
I cannot even explain how freeing and exciting and nerve-wracking this feels inside me. How terrifying, really. I’m someone who believes in money channels. That money flows through us via channels, and we can turn them on and off… And, I ask myself: Do I really want to close off this channel? What if another one doesn’t open up?
And yet… I can’t help noticing the feeling of freedom and aliveness writing this to you.
So, I’m doing it.
To open up to new ways of being and offering, and really focusing on what I want to share and create that can be of immense value.
Here’s to an amazing 2016.
