Thought it would be cool to share some specifics from when I first launched my online coaching biz, to show you what’s possible.
Back in 2011, I had a pretty full book of clients OFFline … but would end up working early in the morning to late at night most days of the week, and quite honestly was on the edge of burning out.
I was looking for a way to leverage my time … help people not only locally, but around the world … and make a little bit of extra $$ in the process too.
So I put a plan together for how I was going to organize and deliver everything … and just made the announcement that I was now accepting online training clients!
I sent people to an application first, to make sure they were a good fit … then we would get on the phone for about 15 minutes to do a quick interview … and if all sounded good, we would get started.
In the first 5 days, I totally filled up my schedule with all the online clients I could handle at the time (which was 9) … each paying about $200 per month. I thought it was going to be so much more complicated to get the thing going – and of course there are some technical and logistical details that I don’t want to bore you with in this message – but honestly, it was SO much easier than I thought it would be!
Over the next 12 weeks, those clients went on to get AWESOME results … in many cases, better than our average in-person clients at the gym! … I’ve worked with hundreds more online clients since … and now have built much of what I do online around this distance coaching model.
Hope this case study was helpful for you, and shows a little bit about what is possible if you decide to launch YOUR online coaching business.
