I know the idea of starting a coaching business in the midst of a global pandemic can be unnerving, but one of the many great things about offering virtual coaching services is that our businesses can still go on in a relatively normal manner. I’m even seeing this with my own business.

I’ve had to make a few tweaks, like recording this episode at my husband’s dental practice since quieter than my home at the moment, but it’s pretty much business as usual for me.

So, with that fear aside, let’s dive into how you find coaching clients for your business.

Topics covered

  • The number one incorrect assumption I see many coaches make when they first start their business
  • The two paths for finding coaching clients
  • The three questions you need to ask yourself if you want to directly engage with your ideal clients
  • Why you shouldn’t focus on driving traffic to your website in the beginning
  • The one question you need to ask yourself if you want others to refer your services
  • How to approach someone you believe might be a good referral connection

TRANSCRIPT

Well, hello friends! Welcome to another episode of the Coach with Clarity podcast. My name is Lee Chaix McDonough and I am so honored to have you join me today. 

So a little bit of behind-the-scenes for you. As I record this, it's April 1. I am recording this in my husband's dental practice, because it is currently closed due to the Coronavirus epidemic. And with my husband and my children at home, I realized that the best, quietest place for me to record this podcast would actually be at his office, because there's no one here. So, you can imagine me sitting in my husband's dental office recording this for you, and figuring out how to move forward in my business and with the podcast, even in the midst of a global pandemic. 

And I suspect many of you who are listening can really resonate with that. There are very few people, if anyone, whose lives have not been affected by Coronavirus. Many of us are under stay at home orders. Many of us are finding that our businesses are significantly impacted as a result. And so if that's you, I just want you to know that you are not alone, that my family is going through it, and if there is a silver lining in all of this, and it may be a little early to look for silver linings, but if there is, I believe the silver lining is that we are all witnessing just how interconnected our world is and how connected we are to one another. And my hope, my sincerest wish, is that this newfound level of connection and empathy that we are all experiencing will lead to some truly positive growth in the world.
