The first time I thought about leaving network marketing and stepping out into the coaching industry, just the *thought* of getting to say I was a business and mindset coach, with a full clientele who helped women, made me LIGHT UP inside! 🏽
Honestly, I longed to work with select individuals and not the masses. I was tired (read: INCREDIBLY. HELLA. BURNT. OUT) of opening the door for anybody and everybody. I wanted people who were ready for change and willing to put in the work.
And as much as I adore mlm products (because they are some of the best out there!), I wanted my own business within my control...
Not a business within a company who could change the rules/comp plan at any time.
Because I had overcome obstacles in life and dove into personal development, I thought, ‘Ya know, people come to me for advice on such-and-such topic, I GOT THIS!’
… aaaannnnd I tried building my coaching business alone.
HINT: Don’t be the coach who doesn’t have a coach. It doesn’t look good. Your girl found out the hard way! Plus, you don’t know what you don’t know.
In fact, I launched my business to thousands of followers and got… Two clients. 2. T-W-O. Dos.
Don’t get it twisted - I was ecstatic and grateful for these two clients, but also silently freaking out. If I didn’t get more clients, I didn’t get more income… If I didn’t get income, welp…
I don’t have a sugar daddy, a trust fund, or a money tree and mama has to keep the lights on somehow! 🤣
My “coaching business” quickly became a ‘part time’ coaching biz that I worked on the side, and I joined yet another network marketing company - because I had to pay the bills.
So how did I go from earning $3,450 my first year of coaching (yes, the entire year), to re-launching and earning over $15k in the first 90 days (and now coaching full time)?
I’ll be teaching some of that LIVE in my exclusive 3 Day Training, starting next week. 🏽 Link in bio.
