To help you become more confident as a coach, have these answers ready before you meet with new clients.
What are your qualifications?
Include personal and professional experience, as well as your certifications, accreditation and awards you have won through CANA and other institutions.
How long have you been in business?
As soon as you register with CANA you begin practicing your coaching skills with clients, thus you are able to say you have been coaching clients since your registration date.
How does the coaching process work?
This is where you explain to your client that you meet together once weekly for a minimum of 3 months or until they have reached goals in their life that they have only dreamed of.
How much do you charge?
Most coaches make a very large error here: they charge too little making themselves seem inexperienced.
As you will be a life coach and a specialized coach certified in a niche of your choosing you will have very little competition and are able to charge top of the line fees. Starting fees are a $185.00 an hour.
Collecting money from a client signifies their commitment to the life change process. This is a very important motivator for them to see this through.
Do you have payment plans?
You must decide if you allow payment plans how much to charge per month.
