Where are you at now with your coaching journey?
I’m in Pro Coach.
The big turning point with your coaching journey?
My coaching journey was very messy at the beginning. Realising I wanted to work with groups was probably the turning point. Bringing the community together with that sense of belonging is really healing. I love all the different dynamics and it lights my heart up seeing people connecting.
Your biggest milestones?
I’ve had clients that had completely lost touch with their children that are now talking to them. One girl who didn’t talk to her dad at all after he left the family when she was 10 got back in contact with him.”
Your most successful marketing strategy?
Facebook and word of mouth. Actually, I’ll make it easy: give value. I knew my program was really good value, and it wasn’t until I knew that it was strong that I started marketing myself and was confident in what I was offering.”
What you loved most about your journey with The Coaching Institute?
The content and the information. It’s like a portal to so much knowledge, they give you everything.
The biggest challenge?
The marketing and the business side because I had hangups around money. I didn’t know business at all and I wasn’t that interested in it. If it wasn’t for TCI I wouldn’t have my business.
Advice for other fabulous TCI coaches?
Follow the systems. Go through the journey of figuring out you and your barriers.
How many clients do you have?
Right now, 16 in my online group, and 51 doing a 21 day meditation challenge. My goal for this month is to make 20k. Normally it’s between 5.5 and 10K but I’m doing really well during coronavirus.
It’s not about the money—I only charge US$197 for my introductory eight week course, which is accessible. It’s more of a lifestyle for me. Usually I spend six months in India upskilling in yoga and philosophy and you wouldn’t be able to do that with any other job. It’s flexible.
Your five year plan?
I’m going to have my own retreat centre, a hub where people can come and do full health. I’ve joined with a doctor who is very passionate. I’ve also just started another business called Inner Trekking where we take people out in nature and go on hikes. You do it in silence except for an hour on one with me and another counsellor. And I’ll have my own aid organisation that helps people in developing countries with basic necessities. I already put away 10 per cent of what I earn each month towards it.
Advice for people thinking of joining TCI?
You won’t regret it. It’s my best decision. I love it. I have a life I want, helping people in a way that’s valuable.
Three things you can’t live without?
The sun. Nature. And love.
