You need a written Business Plan in order to create the life you want

Successful business owners have big goals that help them build a bigger and better business. Yet, many life coaches resist treating their practice like a bona fide business.  How is a Life Coaching Business any different from a Business Coaching Business?  A life coach may target individuals while a business coach targets business owners, but other than that, BOTH ARE BUSINESSES that should be run accordingly. 

Hello, I am Suzanne Muusers, a Business Coach for Financial Advisors in Scottsdale, Arizona. I know a bit about how much a coach earns - I have been coaching since 2004.

How Much Does a Life Coach Make?

The sad fact is that 70% of life coaches make less than $30,000 annually.

I have heard far too many life coaches say that they want to coach "on the side" or have a "little coaching business." The belief system that a life coaching business is somehow a less serious business than a business coaching practice is a limiting belief.  Life coaches everywhere can build a rewarding business if they are able to utilize time effectively, go after higher income clients, and write a business plan with big goals that will keep them on track.

"A goal is where you want to be in one, three or five years. Marketing activities create the steps you need to take to get there"

Life Coach Case Study:

Here is a case study of a coach who has been working on her vision and her goals so that she has a clear idea of the kind of business she is building. Notice the goals in bold.

Julia is a life coach who has just graduated from an ICF-accredited coach training school and is looking to build a practice that will pay her a gross income before expenses of $50,000.00 within three years.  In five years she would like to be making $75,000 annually and funding a retirement account with 25% of her net income. Initially she will work a part-time job until she has five clients each paying between $250 and $325 per month.  She will give two sample coaching sessions per week to ensure a steady stream of new prospects coming into her practice. After a six month break in period, she will acquire two new clients per month while gradually increasing her fees to $300 and $375. She will gradually increase her income from $1400 per month to $2500 per month at her one year mark.  She will attend 5-10 networking events per week to get the word out.  She will introduce 1-2 new products or services annually. She will take Friday's off within three years from now.


These are Julia's goals. She also has a complete Business Plan with marketing activities that show how she will reach her goals.  The proof is in the pudding - marketing is how you attract new clients.
