FAQ: All About Coaching
Have you ever explored the opportunity of working with a coach?
90% of you are probably shaking your head NO, which is expected!
In fact, up until 3 years ago, I never knew that the word "coach" could be used beyond my house league soccer team when I was 10 years old.
Here's a bit of my story:
As I got older and navigated my way through my 20's, life began to get increasingly difficult (anyone else nodding their head!?). Expectations were higher, the stack of bills got bigger, managing my own health and the health of my family became more challenging, my career path was unpredictable after losing 2 jobs, finding a home and city to live in was impossible... there were a LOT of moving parts.
Naturally, certain areas of my life felt out of balance. For example, the business that I was trying to grow came to a screeching halt. I felt paralyzed. Nothing was flowing. The income dissipated and sales were down. I had NO idea where to make changes and HOW to get un-stuck.
For some of you, it's not your business that became stuck, but rather it might have been your health, or your lifestyle. What became unbalanced and unfocused on your journey may have been;
- you stopped eating nourishing foods and making home cooked meals for your family
- not fitting in time for daily movement or exercise, resulting in weight gain, decreased muscle mass, and less enjoyment for working out
- lacking self-care time each day
- forgetting what you love to do, not knowing what inspired you, and not practicing creativity
- neglecting important relationships
- not being mindful
- you feel pigeon holed into a job you dislike and never got to start the career you always dreamed on
... the list goes on
WHEN THINGS BECOME UNBALANCED, OFTEN TIMES WE DON'T EVEN RECOGNIZE THAT THE SHIFT IS HAPPENING.
And then BOOM, you feel like you've reached a rock bottom with no way out.
Whether this has been your case, or you've had a more minor approach to losing a part of you that you want to get back... coaching will help you get there.
We get by with a little help from our friends (or our coach).
Q1: What is a coach?
Coaches give information, wait for a response, and then give feedback on the response. Coaches nudge you towards taking action towards your goals, rather than allowing your life to slip by passively.
Q2: Why should I hire a coach?
You will 10x your progress towards your goals when you hire a coach. When you're working with a coach, your 10 year plan can be achieved in 1 year because you will focus on taking action to actualize your goals.
Working with a coach is an incredible way to get un-stuck and get re-inspired to reach your fullest potential. The truth is, most of us need accountability of some sort to achieve anything great in life, because self motivation can be unpredictable and inconsistent.
Coaches are your accountability experts that work with you closely to ensure that you meet your goals.
Q3: What results can I expect?
Client results vary based on your goals!
My health coaching clients feel vibrant, energetic, stronger and more fit after working with me.
My life coaching clients feel inspired, motivated and have a more positive outlook.
My business coaching clients complete their business plans, learn the most important pillars of their business, get clarity on the problem they're here to solve, and learn how to sell and market their brand.
Q4: How much does it cost to work with a coach?
I've worked with coaches who charge $47 and some who charge $10,000. The price of hiring a coach can differ vastly from person to person.
Typically, a coach will charge at least $100 per hour if they have experience.
Q5: What does a typical monthly 1:1 coaching package entail?
Our first session together is always about exploring where you're at; doing a detailed assessment and intake, discovering your goals and timelines for goal completion, what changes we can implement immediately, and then homework for the following session.
In our second, third and fourth session we are moving full steam ahead! You will be given action items from each coaching session, that you can work on in between our calls. By the final session, I will make sure you've reached and achieved your initial goals.
