Creating a thriving home based coaching business: Sharon Pearson tells

Sharon Pearson’s secrets to creating a thriving home based coaching business

The Coaching Institute's founder shares four dimensions to put in place to really rock your work world now.

If ever there was a time to have a conversation about creating a thriving home based coaching business, it's now, says Sharon Pearson, founder of The Coaching Institute.

For many of us, we're now at home—running families maybe, still thinking about what to make for dinner, teaching kids Year 7 maths—while continuing to build our coaching businesses.

You already know we coaches help people build the mindsets needed for these times. Resilience. Tenacity. Of finding a way. Compassion. Of being this amazing problem solver and moving forward.

What you may not be so clear about is how to go forth and create a thriving home based coaching business.

So Sharon is sharing her four steps to success:

Step one: Inventory of my mind and how am I showing up.

"For me to thrive in these times as a coach is to take an inventory of myself and reflect how have I trained my mind to this moment, how have I trained myself for this moment," says Sharon.

"It's making a conscious choice that I'm going to train my mind so in the face of adversity I find the stepping stones through it. That I grow through it. Be my best."

Step two: Being structured as a coach

Sharon has a structure to her day that involves work productivity, health, fitness, connecting with people, "reflecting on how I'm doing and play—however that might look!" she says.

"With that structure in place, there's a daily sense of progress, so I'm mindful of not being in reaction mode. I know what I can rely on within me that gives a pathway to navigate uncertainty, so I can keep feeling a sense of certainty within me."

Step three: Going inside the structure

It's one thing to say you have a great meditation habit, for example, and another to be as present as possible with yourself and people you're connected to, says Sharon.

"It's being mindful that if they’re spiralling a little bit it’s not to say, 'Knock it off'. It's to hear them, then remind them of what we do have, so in every single moment in this third dimension I'm being mindful of how I'm showing up and what actions I'm choosing."

Step four: Who am I allowing into my world?

Sharon asks who is she letting into her sphere, "and who am I allowing to touch my thoughts or my life or touch my heart."

She wants to know that anyone she allows inside her boundaries can be trusted not to be "overly reactive or panicked with their thoughts in a way that's not productive," she says.

Sharon, who has switched TCI's purpose from Live Your Dream to #StrongerTogether, will share more valuable, practical tips about thriving now at a free three day summit in April, How To Create A Thriving Home Based Coaching Business.
