You know, there’s one question I often hear from people who are considering a work-from-home career as a business coach: Can I really make it as a business coach?
It’s an important question.
After all, starting an at-home business isn’t easy. There are hundreds of pie-in-the-sky promises out there—and that can make it difficult to sort the real opportunities from the snake-oil salesmen.
So the first thing you need to know about business coaching is this:
It’s NOT for everyone.
I know, I know, probably the last thing you expected to hear. But you need to hear it.
Business coaching is NOT about instant riches. It’s NOT about “making money while you sleep.” It’s NOT about downlines or fast, easy cash, or any number of on-the-spot wealth schemes that are too good to be true.
Instead, it’s about working hard…working smart…and making a legitimate full-time income working part-time hours from home.
Business coaching is NOT about instant riches. It's NOT about "making money while you sleep." It's NOT about downlines or fast, easy cash, or any number of on-the-spot wealth schemes that are too good to be true. Instead, it's about working hard...working smart...and making a legitimate full-time income working part-time hours from home.
I want to be perfectly clear on this point: if you’re looking for some sort of no-work formula that will put money in your pocket “magically” and overnight, there’s an EXIT button at the top of your browser. Do us both a favor and click it.
But if you’re willing to put in some time and energy learning an incredible new business that helps people succeed, then stick around. Because that’s what business coaching is all about.
So…what can you expect to earn? Let’s take a look at some realistic figures…
What Could You Do with an Extra $24,000 a Year?
Let’s say you have just ONE coaching client paying you $2,000 a month. That would put an extra $24 grand in your pocket each year. Sure, it’s not enough to retire on…but what could you do with an extra $24,000?
Pay off debt? Send a kid to college for a year? Finish saving that down payment for the home you’ve been eyeing?
Of course, most business coaches have more than just one client…they have 5, 10, 15, or more. Now you’re talking income in the neighborhood of $120,000… $240,000… $360,000.
Now, I’m sure the next question on your lips is this: will I really be able to land new clients? Will I really be able to make this business work? Will I really be able to generate the kind of leads I need to pull in this kind of revenue on a consistent basis?
Well, if past performance of my coaches is any indication…the answer is an unqualified YES.
Look, there are never any guarantees in business. So while I can’t make any promises, what I can tell you is that over the course of my career as a business coach, I personally coached more than 165 business owners and collected more than $2.8 Million in coaching fees. I kept coaching clients for an average of 19 months — nearly double the industry average — and had a stack of testimonials from raving fans who directly attributed their business success to my coaching.
Then, I turned around and completely systematized everything I did when I launched the Coaches’ Coach over a decade ago. Since then, hundreds of business coaches have been able to duplicate my efforts. Many of them are pulling in six figures a year.
It’s not rocket science. It’s systematic. And if you’ve got the right personality and motivation, YOU can do it too.
