You can see how scared I was, in these pictures… 

Here’s a post I wrote on Facebook, back in 2007, when I was barely two years into becoming a professional coach:

I had no idea how much money to charge as a coach:

In response to someone’s comment, I let them know how proud I was of my rates. 

And I almost don’t want to tell you that I used to make a really special offer, if you gave me your credit card number, during our call!

And here’s the moment I remember viscerally, to this day – when I was fired for the first time ever, by a client: 

 

Just over ten years ago, I was full of fear that I wouldn’t succeed in this profession. I was charging less than $300 a month. And I was fired by a client for trying to coach her over email because I was upset that she missed a session.

Embarrassing… 

But those were great lessons. And soon after, I began to practice The Prosperous Coach Approach – and my world began to change. 

I don’t regret my mistakes, over the past decade. It was really challenging growing my business back then. But I learned a great deal. 

And I didn’t stop. 

I kept making mistakes. And I kept learning. 

The word expert has the same root as the word experiment. An expert is just someone who has experimented more than you…

  • Ten years ago, my clients used to pay me $10 a month. Now they invest over $100,000 a year to work with me. 
  • Ten years ago, I used to run coaching groups of 10 people that would take me months to fill. Last year, I launched Project Kairos and two dozen people sign up after I send out just a couple of emails. 
  • Ten years ago, I used to run Intensives for 30 people, with Steve Chandler. We’d each call people – one at a time – and coach them for two hours before they’d sign up. Now, I have 300 people a year attend my Intensives, because they read every article I write and watch everything video I create. 

I’ve become an expert at helping high-performing leaders go on the same journey that I first went on, over a decade ago. 

I’ve spent the past ten years building a Word-of-Mouth business. The most common answer I hear when I ask how people know about me is: “Someone told me about you… and then I ‘stalked’ you online!”

And in a few days – for the first time ever – I’m going to be teaching you how to stand out in a world where everyone is an ‘expert’…

  • I’m going to be teaching you how to get the word out when everyone seems to be a coach… 
  • I’m going to be teaching you how to sell your book, your program or your coaching, in a very noisy world… 
  • I’m going to be teaching you how to build a remarkable business that gets people talking – because it is so unusual or good… 
  • I’ll be sharing the mindsets, techniques, and tools that I use – so you can take your coaching and consulting practice to the next level… 

Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.

Love. Rich

 

 

PS. More transparency here: almost 20 years into my coaching career, I still get nervous every time I launch a new program. When the first person signs up, it always feels like a fluke! And it’s only after the second person is in that I believe it’s real.

Well, the first two people have already signed up for The $100K Club, so strap in, we are ready to fly!!

There are now just 13 spots left at the early bird price. They include a gift ticket to my four newest programs (a $3,686 value bonus). Don’t miss this opportunity to join an exclusive group of coaches committed to growth and success.
