"I cannot imagine having a business without the incredible support from The Coaching Institute..."

Started in April 2017. I was working as a middle manager in local government. I felt stuck in ‘safe’ I had a well paying job and on paper nothing to complain about, yet I felt empty. I remember telling my husband is this what the next 20 years are going to be like I can’t do this. How do other people do this?

I made the decision that the remainder of 2017 needed to be different. Scrolling though Facebook I came across a free event that a friend had liked. Decided this looks different, its about personal development and its free. Why not! Learn more about myself.

"I'm now fully self-employed as a coach and loving it. Have tools and techniques to keep me on track. Balancing my learning and development and tapping into the Coaching Institute to grow and develop my business. I soon discovered this was a business opportunity and decided to sign up to Pro Coach because of the business support. I cannot imagine having a business without this support..."

I found out so much about myself

I had previously run a business in 2007 and it had ended badly, I knew I was different yet despite my husband’s encouraging words I just didn’t feel as if I could take the risk.

However, starting a consultancy was always burning within me, I had heard about coaching and was interested in the modality as a way of helping me achieve the results I wanted. So I went along thinking I will find out how to ‘get’ a coach! Really I wanted to understand how to move through blocks in starting a business.

I absolutely loved the two-day workshop and found out so much about myself, I gained insights into my own personal behaviour and decided to sign up to coach myself and take the Personal Development journey.

I'm now fully self-employed as a coach and loving it

I'm now fully self-employed as a coach and loving it. Have tools and techniques to keep me on track. Balancing my learning and development and tapping into the Coaching Institute to grow and develop my business. I soon discovered this was a business opportunity and decided to sign up to Pro Coach because of the business support. I cannot imagine having a business without this support.

Leaving my job is probably the biggest turning point. Too be honest the comfortable pay each week, I felt safe I was trying it on. When I resigned and left my well-paying job in February 2018. I stepped up. I really started to listen to the mentors and became hungry for the results. Bills and a mortgage to pay, I didn’t want to send us back financially. So personally, I started to tap into the networks that had always been there. I reached out for help, created new values, I started to track my progress and got serious about my networking.

"What I love the most about my journey with The Coaching Institute is the safe and supportive community. There are so many people at different stages of their personal and professional career. It’s great, you can champion the ones starting out, learn from those that have the results you want. Follow the mentors and join in on many of the accountability challenges..."

I have had my first $20k month

Everything is the biggest achievement in my coaching journey! It has changed so much.

Personally, I now know more about myself and my preferences of work, it means I can manage myself, because of this knowledge I am more productive and able to push through past barriers. It has also helped understand my partner more, we now communicate easier with each other.

In business I have pushed and kept myself on track and have had my first $20k month. The most successful marketing strategy is high touch – relationship marketing – BNI and having 1:1s then sending a personalised proposal.

We are the five people that we spend the most time with

What I love the most about my journey with The Coaching Institute is the safe and supportive community. There are so many people at different stages of their personal and professional career. It’s great, you can champion the ones starting out, learn from those that have the results you want. Follow the mentors and join in on many of the accountability challenges.

My message to new coaches who embark on this journey is: Make the most of this wonderful community. We are the five people that we spend the most time with so remember you are always being one of the five people for someone starting out, and finding your new tribe of five for the person you are coming.
