In this week's FB Live inside High Vibin' Soulpreneurs, we dive deep on the most essential steps to be the BEST COACH possible to your online clients so that they can get the best results working with you!
1. Dial up your A game 30 mins prior - that means do not schedule back to back calls so that you can recharge and reset between calls (use washroom, read last week's notes, eat a snack and hydrate). Unfortunately 55 min/call coaches, who schedule back to back clients at the top of the hour, often show up late to their clients & are clearly drained.
2. Listen a LOT and practice Motivational Interviewing (have them discover the answer from within instead of shoving it down their throat).
3. Have a plan in place that will move them forward toward their goal - don’t just talk about it but figure out the next best action steps each week - break it down into manageable pieces for them.
4. Do your Self Care, consistently, and make decisions that support your happiness & joy (because this frequency is higher (process of entrainment via LOA effects your client's own vibration). Be sure to exercise frequently, eat healthy and make sleep a priority.
5. Come with tons of water (triple what you think you'll need for call).
6. Be impeccable with your word and super organized - you can’t be hot mess - that is a disservice to your client investing in you and trusting you with their transformation.
7. Take notes CONSTANTLY- make sure you know what is going on and never ever show up unprepared.
8. Email your client the agreed upon "stretches" each week after your call to keep them accountable to their goals and moving forward.
9. Follow up with them on their stretches goals & don't be scared to remind them of why they hired you (many coaches don't even think about this and then their clients end up with no results).
10. Empower them to rise but don’t twist their arms - accountability and follow through is learned THROUGH working with a coach - if you don’t allow them to step up to the plate you disempower them.
11. Lead by example - practice what you preach!!!
12. Set boundaries - they will respect you 10x more and value your time 10x more if you do (that means set hours for your work and terms written into your client contracts regarding no-show or cancellations).
13. Be a relatable human - never try to present you have it all figured out. Be kind, compassionate & honest. If you can, throw in some humour, too!
Saturn goes retrograde now until mid-September!
If this post caught your eye, it is probably because you've heard about Mercury Retrograde, which has a bad rap in mainstream media these days. Well, this post is to assure you that when Saturn goes retrograde there is nothing to fear! It is also important to clarify that this is not the same as when "Saturn Returns." That is a whole different ball game which you can learn about here.
The reason this planetary retrograde is favourable for us is that it triggers us to dive a little deeper and explore what it is that our soul truly yearns for us to do, be and experience in this lifetime. When this retrograde cycle comes around it lasts about 4 months at which time we are given an opportunity for self-discovery and contemplation.
This delicious period literally speeds up the rate at which we can discover and unlock our purpose in this life or incarnation. This is the period to rediscover who you truly are, go deeper & remember and apply why you are here.
If you've been feeling a little lost lately or out of sorts, then this is your time to go within so that by August you come out feeling sparkly and bright, connected and aligned to what you are truly meant to do. Introspection, journaling, alone time (especially in nature) is excellent during this time. If it is difficult to find alone time or get outside, trying bringing nature's elements to you. You can do this by working with healing crystals (placing in your pockets, holding during meditation or reading or wearing as jewelry). Essential oils (sourced from the plant kingdom) are also great to accompany you. Diffusing or nebulizing them in your home is a sure fire way to bring Mama Nature's healing energy into your home.
So I hope you feel excited to hear of this planetary cycle and look forward with eagerness to where you'll be and how you'll feel come August! This is also an incredibly powerful and effective time to enrol in a self development course or study group. I have created a Signature 16 Week Program called Elevate Your Life (and become an energetic match to your deepest desires & wildest dreams).
This program is for you, if you've done what what society expected of you, and despite that, you are:

How easy is it to allow your ego to take over and supply you with "evidence" that your heart-based and passion driven idea is just silly? How easy is it to let ego come in and completely dismantle your inspired idea and keep you playing safe and small, within the confines of your comfort zone?
I think we can all agree that it is very easy...and that is where the work lies. It's in catching those limiting thoughts and consciously choosing to stop them and paralyze them in their tracks. This is key because our fundamental beliefs about what is possible in our lives (career, money, health and relationships) is based upon the repetitive thoughts we think.
So ask yourself, are you spending more time arguing for your limitations by providing your brain "evidence" why you cannot do something. Or are you choosing to support your dreams and ambitions by intentionally choosing to think thoughts that provide you with evidence things are and will work out in your favour?
On a personal note, I provided my resignation letter to my corporate employer, who paid me $7,100/mo (not including the golden pension and bonuses) at the beginning of March 2017 with FULL KNOWLEDGE I had not one but TWO mortgages to start paying all by myself by April 1st (my tenants from my rental property told me they were moving out March 31st). Not only that, I had a credit card payment coming up for a coaching program that I had enrolled in the month prior that cost me a $10 thousand dollars Canadian!
You may ask yourself, why would I quit the financial security at such a financially taxing time? What sane person would do such a thing? I was launching my private coaching practice in April but I had no so-called evidence it was going to match my corporate employer's salary. And I most definitely had no hard evidence I was going to DOUBLE my corporate salary within 9 months of unhooking myself from that soul-sucking job...but I did just that #boom!
What I had was more powerful. I had belief that no matter what, I was going to be successful AF. How did I develop such a resilient belief system? I only provided myself with evidence that I was going to be successfull. I did not allow limiting thoughts to derail my soul purpose and drive. I prioritized keeping my vibration high knowing I attract what I AM. I consciously spent time ruminating in how and why things were going to work out for me. I believed, and still do, that the Universe and a higher power wants to support me fulfill my deepest desires and wildest dreams in this life.
And because I believed it BEFORE I could see it, I attracted what I envisioned to me.
I share to showcase that this is possible for you too. I could have spent countless more months and years at my corporate job supplying myself with reasons why I had to financially. . and trust me, there would have always been another excuse to put my dream on the back burner of life.
Life is so short and we can live it in a mediocre, auto-pilot kind of way. Or we can live it like we mean it & open ourselves up to the countless possible (amazing) outcomes that are equally available to every. single. one of us.
