You may be wondering why "getting coaching" is becoming so popular and what drives people to hire a professional coach. It is really quite simple.
Despite the fact that the business world is overflowing with opportunity, many entrepreneurs and professionals feel trapped by the increasing demands of 21st century daily life. They find themselves unfocused, under appreciated, overworked and overwhelmed. Consequently they need help. Help they will gladly pay for -- that you can provide.
True professionals need coaching. Ask any great entrepreneur, athlete, speaker, golfer, actor, investor or trial attorney. That is how they stay on the top of their game. If they are going to work with someone who can help, why not you?
A life coach usually runs his/her business from home doing phone consultations while the business coach tends to combine in person meetings with phone sessions.
Clients generally commit to monthly, weekly or bi-monthly sessions for a minimum of one year. If they get results, clients tend to stay with their coach indefinitely because they want to continue reaching higher levels. Having a coach who keeps them accountable and moving forward means they accomplish more in less time.
Coaching fees vary but average $100 a session.
A lot of mental health professionals have become life coaches. They like it because unlike the medical profession, there are no insurance hassles to deal with or mandatory paperwork to fill out. And interestingly many people find coaching MORE personally rewarding than counseling.
Personally I cannot imagine a more satisfying career. Over the past eight years I have helped thousands of people break through their current income ceilings and reduce their work hours. More importantly, clients say that they are enjoying better relationships, and feel happier and healthier than ever before.
With the right tools, you too can lead people out of the labyrinth of unmet expectations and compromised schedules to the path of fulfillment and high achievement. It is a win-win because ultimately you both gain more control, more time, more money and more joy from your careers.
When I first began this work, with the exception of the big name seminar leaders, there were very few successful life coaches around. I had worked with a number of business coaches who were very specialized and while I learned a lot, I did not want to model my practice after theirs. My interest was in using a more holistic approach that combined all facets of life and business -- consequently I positioned myself as a "Success Coach."
Because there was no business model for me to follow, I naturally made a lot of mistakes, wasted about two years and tens of thousands of dollars. But eventually I built a thriving practice. Building a successful life coaching or executive coaching practice is not hard, but it doesn't happen on it's own.
Here is what most life coaching courses and coach training programs don't tell you:
While life and business coaching are becoming very popular, relatively few of us are actually earning a healthy six-figure income, part-time. Like the Pareto principle says, 20% of us are enjoying 80% of coaching fees.
Building a successful practice is not rocket science, but there are things you need to be doing right now - and if possible-- BEFORE you enroll in a coach training academy or take a life coaching course.
In fact the thing that first motivated me to start coaching coaches was the number of calls I got from executives coaches, business coaches and life coaches who wanted to know why I had a waiting list of clients while they only had a handful. These people didn't come off the street -- they had graduated from one coach university or another, taken life coaching courses and numerous coach training programs. And before learning to become a coach, most enjoyed successful careers.
Please understand, I am not knocking these life coach training programs. On the contrary, they have a lot to offer and I encourage you to get educated.
What I am saying is that if you want to build a successful coaching practice, you need more than academics. You need practical real world experience and proven methods to build a consistent, affluent client base. Time is money. In coaching fees it translates to a minimum of $100 per hour.
You can spend months or years figuring it out for yourself, or you can learn them from someone who has already been successful doing what you hope to do. Obviously I recommend getting expert advice from someone who has already made the mistakes you need to avoid, and who has built a prosperous coaching business from the ground up.
Where to begin
Specifically you need to have a workable plan to attract the right kinds of clients, and then you need to know how to keep them. If you have gone through my process, you already know how to position and market yourself in a way that plays to your natural strengths and attracts the right kinds of clients -- people you enjoy working with.
As soon as you have a clear vision of your particular practice, you can start planting the seeds that will grow your business. That type of clarity on the front end, will also help you get the most out of the coaching skills you learn, saving you time, money and a whole lot of effort.
When it comes to growing a business, nothing beats real world experience. That is why I wrote the step by step guide: “How to build a successful coaching practice” and, “How to earn a CEO’s income part-time in pajamas: an inside look at success coaching, the new career phenomena”
Then I realized that without a direct way for you to contact me, much of the valuable information will go to waste.
The truth is that very few people can read and successfully apply information about how to grow their business without having questions and needing personal assistance.
Obviously my time is valuable and there is a limit as to how many emails I can answer in a single day. So for a very short-time I am offering this unheard of arrangement where you have direct access to me personally so that you can get the answers you need.
Why am I doing this?
Because there are more people who need coaching than I can possibly handle, I want to build a network of high level, successful coaches who I can eventually refer business to. That means they need to have learned and successfully applied the strategies that I use. Strategies that consistently keep my clients happy, the coaching roster full, and earn a steady stream of referrals. In the past I tried referring out to coaches who had done their coach elsewhere and in each case clients were dissatisfied with their results.
Of course there is no obligation for you to become part of my network. Neither can I guarantee at this point that there would be
openings left when you are ready, or even that you would qualify. But the truth is that if you apply the principles in the
success coach package, you won’t need referrals from me to make a six-figure income and build the business of your dreams.
1. If at anytime in the next 30 days you don’t agree you got your money’s worth, you will get a full refund no questions asked.
2. I can also guarantee that I will answer any email questions you submit in five business days or less

"Before you take life coach training or enroll in one of the life coaching courses, read and work through Mandy's materials.
Mandy 's program is inspiring and at the same time, practical. Her coaching methods and business building strategies have really worked for me.
When I bought her program I had already taken life coach training but I was struggling to get clients and keep them. That is no longer the case. Mandy's materials helped me to reposition myself. I have developed a niche market and client retention is no longer a problem.
I am happier in my work than I can ever remember. I love coaching and I am making a lot more money than I did as a therapist.
If I had her stuff before taking life coach training it would have helped me zero in and focus more. What I learned would have been more meaningful -more relevant- because I would have known how to apply and integrate it all.
More importantly, I see now that I lost valuable time as far as building my business is concerned. I could have got my practice built a lot quicker if I had started with her materials. All I can say is that I am glad I have them now. - Victoria B., Dallas, TX

Over the years I have attended many seminars hosted by famous motivational leaders. I have spent a
small fortune on all sorts of books and tapes and NONE have
given me what you have…I really wanted to feel whole,
confident, balanced, happy. You taught me the basic
skills necessary to finally achieve what I wanted for myself.
- Kathy Poulin, Pompano Beach, Fl
Now I have clarity as far as what’s important to me, and I am able to focus
in on that. ..Thanks to Mandy's techniques I have
accomplished both my personal and business goals --
not just one at the expense of the other.
- Larry Epstein, Deerfield Beach, Fl
I’ve noticed that I am more organized than I have ever been in my life. I seem to have so
much extra time that I didn’t have before through the
organizational process that she (Mandy) teaches.
- Marilyn Blosser, Miami, FL
I have a measure of internal calm and peacefulness I did not have before working with
Mandy. …a good coach can take a good
person/professional/friend and make them even better.
Mandy helps keep my eye on what I really want out of life, and
has excellent ideas as to how to get there… I continue to
hire Mandy because she has the wisdom to see beyond the
surface of a situation, and the strength to push me forward when I won't go on my own

Mandy I thought I was buying some useful material. What I had
not bargained for was your personal caring and advice to get me
started. You are fabulous! Thank
- Pete Jensen, AZ
I just wanted to thank you for your program. I learned
a lot of neat and useful ideas. After learning your
organizational methods I headed to Office Depot & I
set my staff up on your Effective Workflow System. I used your
flow chart to explain about the paper on their desks.
We've been using it for about a week and we can already see
the difference. I made up a few more folders for my husband Andy and a close
friend of mine that is always running around putting out
fires. I'm not sure if they will use it exactly, but if
they do, it should help them too.
- Toni Espey, Plantation FL
Mandy’s guidance has provided a tremendous amount of focus for me…. I am
not stressed out even though I am
starting a new coaching business
- Lana Evans, Washington D.C
I have not stopped talking about my new focus and direction
since I began using your strategies for self management.
They are great and I am so happy that I took time out to
- Joseph Panico, Weston, FL
When I first became a life coach, I struggled to get clients.
The other coaching courses I took were good but didn't
really help me build my practice. Using Mandy's techniques I have learned to position myself to
attract clients to me, instead of me always chasing them.
Another big thing Mandy has taught me is how to turn
interested prospects into paying clients. I do free initial
consultations and before learning Mandy's methods I was lucky
to close two out of ten. Now it is around 90%.
- Barbara Birdman, Denver , CO
After reading Mandy's book, "Earn a CEO's income
part-time in Pajamas," I realized that what I really
needed to do was to make my existing business work, and
that coaching was not right for me. So I took the rest of the
materials and applied them to my existing home based business.
Wow! What a difference! Sales are booming... I only wish I had
bought the package sooner.
- Denise Jonston, New York State
