I have coached my first pro bono client and they really loved it. They gave me a big hug at the end of the session and later that day they sent me a text to tell me again, how much they loved it. It feels wonderful to be able to give that to another human being. I have also given my first workshop and the organization has asked for a proposal for more.
Through being coached by another student, which is a part of the program I realised how many limiting beliefs were holding me back based on my interpretation of events from my early childhood. Dumping the belief that I didn’t deserve to be alive was the biggest turning point.
One of the people from my intake offered pro bono business coaching and I leapt at it. It has been really useful and helped me with marketing strategies and the business side of this course. Another limiting belief was that I was not cut out for marketing and business and would be useless at it. Once I got past that, when a friend from a previous job phoned and asked for some professional advice, I gave her the advice and then asked if she would like me to come and give a talk/workshop. This has led to the request of the proposal for more workshops.
I have joined the Business Woman’s Network and I am preparing a proposal for the organization for which I gave a very successful workshop. The workshops they have requested are quite generic and I will be able to offer them to any organization. I am about to advertise in the local paper for clients who would really benefit from my services and I have already got an arrangement with a local massage therapist to have my brochures displayed in her rooms. I am about to launch my own website – I have had quite a lot of help with this as I knew nothing about websites.
The Coaching Institute has supported me at every level including the amazing support from the entire team at TCI. They could have a motto that says ‘nothing is too much trouble and we really care’. The stunning amount of written material, the bonus material, the CDs, the DVDs, the unwavering support from my intake group ,the webinars so that I can study from home and the overall belief that everyone who walks through that door is perfect, whole and everything they need to be.
