Tips For Becoming a Successful Business Coach

More and more women are jumping into the ever growing business of coaching other women to be entrepreneurs.  If you’ve ever dreamed of leaving your corporate job behind and being able to live wherever you want and work from the comfort of your laptop setting your own hours, then this is the job for you.


Business coaches hold their client’s hands while they make the transition from newbie entrepreneur to badass business guru.  Business coaches can either have a niche specialty or are simply experts in strategy and self-starting that can be applied to any business model.

Perhaps you’re an excellent leader, love inspiring others, and love being your own boss.  With the right network and tools, you can make an extremely comfortable living coaching other females.  At the heart of business coaching is life coaching, and helping people unlock their greatest potential. Tracy Cherpeski, entrepreneurship, and wellness coach says, “If you are not clear on your vision, then every single opportunity will distract you and impede your progress.”  This is where a business coach comes in to assist their client in keeping their eye on the goal.

Follow these successful business coach tips and create a flourishing business for yourself.

Take a Course/Get Certified

The first step is taking a course on how to market your brand. You’ll need to learn the ins and outs of how to create a website and blog, draw in clients, and how to keep an audience referring new clients.

You should consider getting certified as a business coach which adds more credibility to your title.  Anyone can call themselves anything.  But when people are paying you money they expect the real thing.

Start With Free Clients

To launch your network, start with several free clients to get your portfolio going.  Give as much effort to this client as you would to a paying client.  You always want to put your best foot forward, therefore even free clients should be a product of your best work.

Ask your client if they would be willing to share with others the positive experience that they had working with you, and how it helped them grow their business. People won’t just believe what you want to sell them, they want to see results!

Offering testimonies is one of the most tried and true ways to sell people on your product.

Carry Business Cards

You should always carry a card on hand which has your contact information so that you can give it to any potential clients.

You never know when your next big business opportunity will be in front of you!
