What we discussed in the epsisode:

Hop into the car with us for another coaching in the car session! Today, we’re talking about figuring out how much your skills and knowledge are really worth when you’re coaching in the business world.

John Pownall, who’s been with us for the previous five episodes, shares some ups and downs that he’s been through from the past few weeks like trying to get new clients while juggling a busy life. It’s tricky when most of your clients come through word of mouth and you’re also working face-to-face with people. Sometimes, you meet folks who might not be the best fit or who take a long time to decide.

Today’s episode zooms in on an important idea: not selling yourself short. It’s about understanding that what you know and the experience you bring are valuable. We also touch on how telling people about the value you provide is key. It’s not just about what you charge but making sure clients see the good things they’ll get from working with you.

The ride isn’t all about pricing; learning and understanding that sometimes having fewer clients and charging a bit more might actually be better. Join us as we find the right balance between your pricing and seeing your business’s worth clearly in the world of coaching. Tune in!
