The Uncoachable Coach

I am usually amazed when talking with other coaches, counselors, practitioners and business owner. Many of them come to me because their businesses are not supporting them financially and they have a big lack of clients.

As a coach who coaches with other coaches and business owners to help them build their practices, I have a lot of experience in dealing with some major egos.

The amazing part is that these coaches expect clients to knock down their doors seeking their advice and pay a fee to do it, but they themselves do not do the same in their business.

I for one have hired numerous coaches throughout my tenure as a coach and a business owner. I've spent two days 1:1 with a coach, traveled across the country and have had countless phone calls to help me improve my offering.

Why in the world would I expect someone to engage with me if i won't engage with others?

And this is why 51% of coaches in the US made less than $10,000 last year.
