We’ve all been there. Saying ‘yes’ to anyone willing to hand over cash in exchange for our services and then dreading that next appointment with them as they slowly (but surely) turn into the nightmare client. They’re always running late, miss appointments, cancel at the last minute, step over boundaries and then have the cheek to complain that you’re not doing your job properly. The list can go on and on.
Trust me, I’ve been there and worked with some people I really shouldn’t have but I was new and wanted to expand my business quickly and build a name for myself. If only I’d known then what I know now! If I’d had a couple of things in place I could easily have avoided all the necessary cost, stress and heartache.
While there are many things that you need to do to be a credible, professional business woman and beautiful coach, I want to share my TOP 2 TIPS to guarantee dream clients. These really work, so please, NEVER miss them out. Pinky promise?
• Create a Client Contract Agreement.
This is different to a normal contract in terms of terms and conditions, holiday pay and sick pay and all the things you might be used to in the corporate world. A client contract agreement is the foundation of your coaching relationship and it’s used to cover essentials such as objectives, coaching standards, expectations for both parties etc. read more about client contract agreements and boundaries here.
• Conduct a Chemistry Strategy Session
Ditch the discovery call, chemistry is where it’s at! The chemistry between you and your client is so important. Really listen to them and find out what makes them tick. What are their hopes and dreams? Their fears and aspirations? Suggest some outrageous goals for them, thrill them and let them start to think outside of their own hand-made box.
Finally, (ok, so that’s three points, but hey, we all love bonuses right?!)…
• Know your niche and stick to it!
(And tip 4: always exceed your client’s expectations!)
If you could become known not just as the expert in your field, but also for being a beautiful coach who delights their clients and supports them to achieve goals beyond their wildest dreams, then wouldn’t that feel pretty amazing?
