I started Module 15 in my Integrative Nutrition class. This module is all about starting the business, setting up Six Month Coaching packages and how to build the business. OMG! The anxiety attack I had while doing this module was intense! My Accountability Partner and I were cracking up at each other’s panic attacks 😂😂
The actual coaching does not freak me out. I’m a relator and a giver✌️ I’m a natural coach ✌️🦋☺️It’s all of the business stuff that is complicated. The Business plan, a lawyer, liability insurance, creating pricing packages with incentives, identifing the services I will offer. I want to offer a free initial consultation, traditional 50 minute sessions. A fee for a one off session. A fee for a mini package and a 6 month(12 session package). I want to also offer Pantry makeovers, Food Store Tours(how to shop & make better choices). Here’s a tip – stay out of the center isles! It’s all garbage! Since my target market is folks 50 and over, I will also offer the senior rates and do plenty of pro-bono work for folks on a fixed income.
The need to get my business set up soon got even more intense this afternoon when I had a practice session with a friend who at the end wanted to hire me and buy a package. I wasn’t ready. Luckily she isn’t in a rush, understood I wasn’t set up yet and is willing to wait for me. In the meantime, I’m offering free text/email questions and consulting to more or less keep her interested😂It’s a good problem but a bit of pressure too. As a student, it’s suggested I charge $95/month for a six month package. That doubles after I graduated. I will also offer incentive discounts for signing the same day, paying in full or using a PayPal. I love PayPal 😂👍
Here’s where I need to check the balance of my Primary Food. I already have a full time job 😂This business will be side business that I do for my personal fulfillment but it’s still work. I’m going to have to figure out how to balance that. I think once it’s set up, it will be easier. I may need to take a week of vacation from work to get everything established. I also need to buy a MacBook or an iPad Pro with a keyboard. But I just bought a new car and don’t want to spend the cash until next year 😂
This is all exciting and fun😊But it’s also a little scary. Anytime we try something new and put ourselves out there it’s stressful. What’s the alternative? There isn’t one for me. I refuse to live a life that is less than the one I am capable of living. That rings true in every aspect of my life. I’m an ALL-IN kind of girl. In work or in Love, I like to be all in 😂💙🦋🙏
I am very thankful for my Accountability Partner. She’s a great coach. We are planning to go on a yoga retreat together this winter 🙏🦋If you are looking for a coach who specializes in Woman’s health and is available in the NYC area or by phone/Skype, check out her website
What’s exciting you today? Are you living the life you are capable of living? Are you All In?
