Are you having to balance your coaching business with another job right now? Maybe you have a full-time gig that pays most of the bills. Maybe you do contractor work on a part-time basis. Whatever the case may be, almost every successful coach started off by building their business on the side.
If they're being honest, most coaches will tell you that they think about quitting a lot. The frequency with which they think about it usually depends on how stable their business is. When things are going well, those thoughts can be few and far between. When things feel like a struggle, they might think about getting a normal job or starting a different business every single day. This begs the question: why do so many people, in one of the best careers of all time, think about quitting so often?
There's a specific part in my book Don't Let The Fear Win that always seems to make an impact on people. The main message is that when you define yourself by how many clients you get or how much money you make, you actually end up with less of both. I also give a specific mantra that has really helped me avoid falling into this trap.
