Life Coach transitioning into full time coaching

Welcome back to the podcast! Today, I want to delve into three pivotal mindset shifts that transformed my coaching journey when I made the leap to full-time entrepreneurship.

If you're eager to transition to full-time coaching but feel stuck due to uncertainty about clients and finances, this episode is for you.

As someone dedicated to supporting soul-led life coaches in their journey to full-time entrepreneurship, I'm excited to share these insights. Let's dive in:


1. Embrace Decisiveness Over Indecision:

One common challenge I've observed among coaches, whether freshly certified or seasoned, is the tendency to dwell in indecision. Even as a successful coach, I've faced moments of uncertainty. However, the key difference lies in how swiftly we act upon recognizing indecision.

Decisiveness is essential, whether it's choosing a coaching offer, defining your niche, or setting prices. Indecision hampers progress and stunts growth.

Recognize moments of indecision, confront the underlying fears, and commit to decisive action. In my CEO Strategy Sessions, we prioritize extreme clarity and empowered decision-making to set the foundation for success.

2. Stop Waiting for Permission:

Many coaches, especially those transitioning from traditional employment, struggle with seeking external validation and permission. This habit stems from ingrained workplace dynamics where validation and approval were prerequisites for action.

However, as an entrepreneur, you're the boss now. Waiting for permission only hinders your autonomy and delays progress.

Own your authority, trust your instincts, and embrace self-validation.

Remember, your business thrives when you lead with confidence and assertiveness. In one-to-one coaching sessions, we cultivate self-leadership and empower you to make decisions aligned with your vision.


3. Shed the "New Coach" Label:

While adopting a beginner's mindset is valuable, clinging to the "new coach" label can limit your potential. Embrace your journey without allowing it to undermine your expertise. Own your status proudly while acknowledging your growth and unique insights.

Your value as a coach transcends tenure. Whether you're freshly certified or have years of experience, focus on delivering value and serving your clients wholeheartedly.

In coaching containers, prioritize your clients' needs over self-doubt or imposter syndrome. Remember, authenticity and confidence are magnetic.
