The Issues With Most Coaches & My Promise To My Clients

How many of you have participated in a webinar, or seen a landing page, or an ad from a life coach who promises you that they will give you “the secrets to success” “the keys to marketing”  “Take your life coaching business to the highest levels” or anything like that? They make such beautiful posts, posts which catch your attention and get you hooked, you excitedly give your email, you get ready for a breakthrough call, you set the time and date to watch their webinar, only to leave there feeling like you didn’t really learn anything? Only to wind up feeling like it was all just a giant sales pitch? To feel gypped in a way? Have y’all ever noticed how their pitches are all basically the same thing, the same layout/format?

As someone who has used several different coaching services, as someone who follows hundreds of coaches, it is a major pet peeve I have, it is something that I as a coach never want to do. As a coach, I never want anyone who uses any of my services, whether it be through a paid session, a webinar, visiting my blog, or anything like that, to leave feeling like they did not get any value, like I did not give them what I was promising to give them. I never want my clients to see my landing page and feel like they have seen the same thing 1000 times before, I never want them to feel obligated to pay for my bigger programs. I want to create content, programs, and services that tailor to everyone’s budget, that attract the people who will vibe with me as I will vibe with them. I want people to book my services because they like what I have to say, because they feel aligned to, because they feel a connection to me. For me, it isn’t about getting as many clients as I can, it is about finding the right clients, it is about helping those who actually want it, who need it, who are willing to put in the time and work. For me, it is about providing as much value as I possibly can on every level of my business from the blog all the way up to the $11,111 intensives. For me, it is about sharing my knowledge, my unique perspective with the world, it is about sharing my ups, my down, what has and hasn’t worked for me. It is about helping others find the same power within themselves, I have found within myself, it is about showing them that they have the power, they have the answers they seek, and they are the creators of their destiny, not I.

Too many times I see coaches promising the sun, the moon, the stars, and the entire galaxy, yet many fail to deliver it, or in order to get you there you have to pay $1,000s of dollars. I call BULLSHIT on that! No one can give you the sun, the moon, the stars, and the whole galaxy, no one has all the answers, there is no such thing as a get rich quick scheme that actually works.  I will not promise you that, but what I will promise you is that I will give you the tools, tips, tricks, and techniques that I myself use every single day, that have worked for me, that have brought me success. I cannot build the stairs to success for you, that part is up to you, I cannot give you the answers to the Universe, I cannot make you love yourself. What I can give you is the confidence to proceed in the directions of your dreams, what I can give you is the steps I took in learning to love myself, what I can give you is the tools you need to build your dream life, but you have to build it.  At the end of the day though, you have to be willing to dig deep, to get honest, to be vulnerable, and to set boundaries, to work smarter (not harder), to apply all that I give you, to put in the time and effort. I will not promise you that if you work with me, you will magically have $1,000’s in your bank account, that you will love yourself more fiercely than ever, that you will become this unstoppable warrior goddess. Don’t get me wrong either, I would love to help you achieve all of that and more, but whether or not you achieve that is ultimately up to you. What I do promise you is that I will support you in any way I can, I will give you a SHITTON of value, and I will share my knowledge with you. I promise I will not bombard you with tired old sales pitches, I will not make you read several paragraphs or pages to find the answers you seek, I will not make you pay thousands to get the value you seek.

This however, is not to say that I will not price my services accordingly either, or that I fault other coaches whose price points are higher, as we are giving you our time, our energy, our effort, we spend hours creating content, creating programs and intensives, we invest a lot into our clients, and we should be paid for that exchange. Please understand this is also in no way my insulting other coaches or the ways in which they run their businesses as that is what works for them, but it is not how I want to run mine. I do not want insanely long sales pages, the same regurgitated pitches and advertisements. This is rather my promise to my clients, what I have noticed about other coaches which has turned me off as a potential client, and my observations of what I feel could be done differently.

I am not like many people, I pride myself on that fact. I have been through so very much in my 30 years on this planet, which has in turn given me a very unique perspective. My life, while it has been anything but easy, has allowed to me to learn, to grow, to gain a deep level of empathy, of understanding for the struggles of others. It has shown me that no matter how many times life, society or others may try to tear you down, may try to break you, may try to dim your light, you can overcome anything, you can rebuild, you can shine your light so bright that you become a beacon for others. I won’t blow smoke up your ass, I won’t make you grandiose promises, I won’t waste your time, your money, or your energy. I say it like it is, I curse, I have strong opinions, I will not coddle you, I will not BULLSHIT you, and I will call you out. As a coach, I want to be your friend, but you also have friends who will tell what you want to hear, I will not tell you what you want to hear, but rather WHAT you need to hear. I will force you out of your comfort zone, I will test your limits, I will push you in front of your fears. I will not do this because I am callous, because I am vindictive, because I am uncaring, but because you’re paying me to help you change, to help you break through blocks, to shatter glass ceilings, to get rid of limiting beliefs. The way in which I do things, is not for everyone, and that is okay, I do not expect it to be that way. This is of course not to say, I will not be there for you to vent to, to talk to me about all the stresses going on in your life, to help you, because I am always there for friends and clients alike. I will give you a healthy dose of loving energy along with some tough love. Like everything here at The Unicorn Phoenix Goddess it is all about BALANCE. In life, the key to true success is finding the balance between being set in what you want, while also allowing the flow of the Universe to do its job, while being open to all possibilities. It is about setting healthy boundaries, it is about finding your voice, it is about unleashing your inner power. I can show you how to find that balance, I can show you how brilliant, powerful, amazing, beautiful, spectacular, and unstoppable you truly are. You just have to be open, willing to do some serious self-development & soul work, you have to be ready to work.

As Always,

My Beautiful Badass Unicorn Phoenix Goddesses I Hope You Have A Magical Day!
