Coaching

Here's an example of how Christine might work with you in a coaching session:

  1. Meet to discuss what new or revised brand, service, or product (or dream offering) you want to bring into the world.
  2. Investigate your motivation and vision for this offering, and make that vision the center of whatever comes next.
  3. Map out who would benefit from your offering, and plan ways to let them know that what they're looking for is what you're offering.
  4. Detail the action steps that are necessary to bring your offering into the real world.
  5. Hold you accountable to completing those steps.
  6. Discuss how you are doing, emotionally, as you encounter road blocks and new demands on your time as your offering comes into being.
  7. Evaluate with you how the result matches the dream, providing input about how to revise the offering itself, the marketing plan, the price point, or whatever may be not matching up to the original vision.
  8. Continue to consult with you as you build more products, services, publications, and variety into your business.
