As much as you love following your favorite entrepreneurs on the gram, you're just about ready (eeeek) to have some of that for YOURSELF. It seems like everyone in your internet-universe has an online coaching business, are leaving their jobs, and running 6-figure businesses. It's no longer a question of "is this for me?" It's now a question of, "How do I finally make this happen?
Before we dive into what it really takes to start an online coaching business, I just want you to know:
That feeling exists for a reason.
I remember when I first felt it, too.
I was 21 years old and had just failed my NCLEX - the board exam you need to pass to become a Registered Nurse.
I was doing a bit of online coaching on the side, not planning to turn it into my career...
Untill, slowly but surely, the light and fire inside of me for nurisng was slowly fizzling out, exactly as that same fire was burning up for fitness coaching.
Failing that exam forced me to re-evaluate where I was going with my life.
Do I attempt to re-take this exam and follow through with my nursing career (and not waste ALL the money I spent on my 4-year degree? Vomit....)
Or do I step into the path of the unknown, and go "all-in" with this kinda-weird, kinda-scary, kinda-fucking awesome internet business thing?
But the call to become a coach is NOT an accident, you know.
The feeling you have inside of you that's SCREAMING at you to say yes to starting this business is a little something called your Intution.
See, your intuition is the part of you that's always navigating you toward your highest good.
It's the part that says things like, "get to sleep early," "get to the gym," "end this relationship," and "take that risk."
It may not give you a step-by-step manual on how to get there, but it will give you internal signs and signals that this is the right thing for you.
That's because this is your calling, friend.
But we know there are roadblocks coming up for you left and right when you consider actually diving in and doing this.
Here's what's going on in your body:
Our brain will copy the emotional aspects of an experience, program it into our subconscious (the body), and repeats the thoughts + emotions whenever we have a similar experience.
That’s why when you go to try something new, you'll feel blocked, resistant, or avoidant.
If you've had ANY experience in the past where you learned to not trust yourself because you didn't follow through with a committment...
ANY thoughts about how money doesn't come easily to you...
ANY concern that you're not as good as others who are doing this, and who are you to even try...
That's your body's defense mechanism kicking in, working to keep you safe.
Change is making a different choice than you made yesterday.
Going from your current self to your new self is literally a chemical, hormonal and neurological change.
Which is why it feels “right” to hang up the phone and say no to a big investment.
The body wants to stay the same. It feels FAMILIARITY AND SAFETY with that decision.
It feels uncertainty and lack of safety with the change.
Saying yes to changing is our way of telling our bodies safety mechanisms: "Thank you, but I don't need you right now."
Most people who are dying to start their online business tend to spend a lot of time doing the wrong things.
And it's not their fault: they don't actually KNOW what to do. There's no instruction manual sitting out there, and plenty of "influencers" are telling you to just google it.
What ends up happening, is that they spend their free time listening to a ton of podcasts, taking notes, creating content for social media, and that's essentially it.
Everything else--the activities needed to start, run, and operate a REAL business--either seem too confusing, hard, or out of reach.
So they go from hopeful that they can figure it out on their own, to completely discouraged that they haven't yet been able to connect the dots.
"The Flourish & Conquer Accelerator has been the largest and also the most rewarding investment I’ve made in myself. I have been able to start my online fitness coaching business, and filled up my one-on-one coaching spots for the month of January in my first month of online coaching ever. I was able to quit my corporate 9-5 job. And for the first time in my life, I’m actually charging a living amount. I can live off my one-on-one coaching based on what I’m charging, and I’ve never done that before in my life. I would say that my mindset around money and just myself and putting myself first has changed drastically throughout this program, and it’s allowing me to create the success that I know will continue throughout my life." - Maggi Coalo, FCA Graduate and Online Fitness Coach.
Waking up every day thinking about what to post on the gram, pitching every so often, letting people know that you're a coach sporadically isn't cutting it anymore.
Googling business articles and connecting the dots on your own is really the absolute least efficient way to go about starting your business (as you've probably figured out.)
Information is useful, but a STRATEGY is the plan that makes it all come together.
Wouldn't it feel nice to know--for certain--that the content you spend all your time creating, the work you're doing building your program out, and the energy you spend starting your business will ACTUALLY provide you an ROI?
I won't assume your answer, but the Old Amanda from 2014 would have said absolutely fuck yes :)
An 8-week Business Intensive Business Coaching Program that helps online coaches start their online coaching businesses, become a social media pro, and get clients through social media with ease and expertise.
Real Clients and Real Results in just 8 weeks.
If you're a new or fairly new online coach whose making less than $5,000, has yet to replace their income with their business's income, and knows they want to coach other people to transform into their highest selves...
This program was made for you.
(HINT: The video below is not only totally awesome and fun to watch, but has testimonials from people who were just recently in your shoes.)
“With the help of FCA, I created 2 programs within 2 months, and I booked 3 new private online clients. I also created a do-it-yourself program and sold 7 of those, taking my income from zero dollars to $2,004 online.
I now feel super confident and super empowered about what I should actually be doing daily. The accountability and support that I received from Amanda and her team of coaches went above and beyond my expectations. It was absolutely worth my time, my energy and my investment, and I couldn’t be more proud of the results I’m seeing in my personal life as well as in my business life.” - Corrie Blissit, FCA Graduate, Health & Mindset Coach.
You can't have what you don't identify. Getting crystal clear on what your greatest gifts are and who you want to serve (with help!) needs to come before ANYTHING. We provide trainings, resources, and tools to help you choose something that works, clarify your messaging (so people can actually hear it), and make doing the market research FUN.
Your offer shoud combine your expertise, what your ideal client is dying for, and what the market really needs. Being able to create an offer your client needs is both about how you PRESENT it and how you DELIVER it. Make your offer totally irresisible, while also delivering a product that will actually transform the client.
Social Media is where your ideal clients are likely hanging out, but you also need to stand above the noise and FIND EACH OTHER. We'll show you how to create content that attracts your ideal clients - even when you have a tiny audience. We want that audience to be filled with customers, and we've got the goods to show you how.
Doing all of this work can feel scary, and if you let THAT get to you...you'll end up falling into the trap of overwhelm. We know that having structure surrounding what to do and WHEN to do it (especially those still working their jobs) is fuckng crucial.
It's time to make money...but your biggest fear is sounding salesly, sleazy, or manipulative. Guess what? You can sell your offer at high-ticket prices with total ease, no guilt, and a loving heart. Our Heart-Centered Transformational Sales Process will leave you feeling at ease while you collect that money, honey.
The business only goes as far as the leader grows...so don't expect to hide behind tactics and strategies in FCA. We're here to help you grow as a human, remove the blocks stopping you from doing what you know is necessary, and empower you to step into your true CEO-Badassery.
Having a clear plan when getting started is extremely useful. We've mastered the art of providing custom coaching support for each client, while still ensuring everyone knows what to do, and when to do it. You won't feel like a fish floundering in this group program. Never, not once. We don't let you :)
“It’s 100% worth it. Before joining FCA, I was clueless about how to find my ideal client, how to promote myself, and how to use social media for my business. I am SO grateful. The coaches were amazing - the guidance and support - they were there EVERY TIME you had a question. I made friends for a lifetime, we’re still texting everyday. My mindset completely changed- so much more positivity, the way I see the world, the belief I have in myself. There is SO MUCH VALUE that this program provided me. If I didn’t join this program, I probably would’ve figured these things out, but in probably 3 years. I accomplished SO much more than I ever thought in just 90 days.” -Tatiana Couto - FCA 2018 Graduate, Online Fitness Coach
The truth is, nothing happens all on our own.
We can talk ourselves into the fact that doing it on our own is noble - but in reality, it's just kinda lonely.
My mom taught me how to be an independent woman, and make my own money when her and my dad divorced.
She taught me to be resourceful and figure it out. So for a while, I did a lot on my own.
I had help from mentors, people who I watched and studied...but I eventually hit a plateau (all alone in my apartment, talking to my camera, not making any friends.)
That's when I decided to hire MY first mentor, and really learn how to accelerate what I was doing.
That's when EVERYTHING changed for me.
I was so confused on launches, program delivery, tech, email lists, and sales. I truthfully had no clue what I was doing.
But the level of support I was able to get just from the FIRST DAY of joining my first Mastermind made it all worth it.
I was able to be shown HOW to do everything -- which was exactly what I needed to propel me into action.
Once I had the tools and knew what to do, I was like a rocket ship.
I came up with the idea for THIS program, dove into creating it, launched it, did 60 sales calls, and got my first 20 students.
I had my first 6-figure launch, and the rest was history.
Of course, I'm not misleading you to believe that you'll have a 6-figure launch off-the-bat,
But we've taught hundreds of entrepreneurs with no audience how to start their business and replace their income with coaching full-time.
The next one could be you.
This page is going to find you again this afternoon, tomorrow, the day before enrollment closes, and in your sleep.
I know you've likely opened it on your phone, and it's easier to just click off and not fill it out.
Your ego is definitely saying things like "you don't need this right now," and "forget it, maybe fill it out later," understandably so.
It's entire job is to keep you safe and comfortable.
But the thing is....
Making change is compeltely unsafe and uncomfortable.
In order to become who we want to be, we have to first let go of who we already are.
