I don’t offer ‘free’ sessions. I do waive my fee for powerful coaching for a few people who inspire me—because I build my business by invitation and referral.
I rarely spend less than two hours with someone because coaching is deep and has a long-lasting impact. It deserves quality time.
Some of the people I coach I never see again. Some make referrals. And a few choose to become part of a select group of my extraordinary clients.
Sometimes people tell me they are grateful that “I give them my time for free”.
I tell them that I’m NOT giving them my time for free. I tell them that I set a high bar for who I spend time with. And I tell them that they inspired me which is why I chose to spend my time with them.
And then I tell them something that usually astounds them.
I tell them that this wasn’t just a coaching session.
This was an INTERVIEW.
I’ve been testing out if they meet the criteria I have for those rare people I want to invest my time in by working with them for six months to a year.
And—if they have met my criteria—I’ll tell them so.
And I’ll set up a time for us to speak again.
