Michele Lefler of Living Moon Meditation: Five Things You Need To Create a Highly Successful Career As a Life or Business Coach

Be yourself. Let your personality shine in your business. You are a coach for a reason. You want to help people. Let your business reflect who you are without trying to be like every other coach you know. This is what sets you apart in a sea of other coaches. You may think you’re in a saturated market, but that doesn’t matter. You are unique and if you let that shine in your business then it will be unique, too.

  1. Be yourself. Let your personality shine in your business. You are a coach for a reason. You want to help people. Let your business reflect who you are without trying to be like every other coach you know. This is what sets you apart in a sea of other coaches. You may think you’re in a saturated market, but that doesn’t matter. You are unique and if you let that shine in your business then it will be unique, too.
  2. Practice what you preach. Whatever coaching techniques you use with your clients? Do those yourself. It makes you authentic and relatable. And when you aren’t doing the things you’re teaching your clients, they can totally tell. It makes you look fake, and no one wants a fake coach.
  3. Be visible. This is one I’ve struggled with forever, so I know what I’m talking about here. You must be visible. People must be able to find you. You can be the best coach out there, but if no one has ever heard of you then you won’t get clients. You don’t have to be super-mega-famous, but you do have to put yourself out there. Find ways that work for you in being seen. Post on social media. Do videos. Network with other coaches and entrepreneurs. Talk about yourself. Let your passion shine through to others. Just be willing to be seen.
  4. Practice self-care. This one’s crucial. You can do all the things and still not be successful if you’re running yourself into the ground. Take time for you. Do what you need to do to recharge. And practice business self-care, too. Your business needs some down time to recharge just as much as you do. Take care of you (and your business) and your business will take care of you.
