It is a common belief that excellent coaches are not born; they are made. A lot of people feel lost and helpless because they put in a lot of effort, and yet they don’t get the results that they expected.

If you are a coach, here are three top tips you need to know if you are starting out in the industry.

  1. Act as if now. Act as if you are a coach, act as if you are a coach. Change your profiles on social media, say that you are a coach, say you are a coach, even if you haven’t started. But once you decide you are, then you are. It doesn’t matter how many coaching gigs or clients you have or have not done. If you believe you are, then you are.

It is important to build a social media presence around being a coach.

  1. Share your knowledge. Share what you know, start sharing what it is you want to coach on. Start sharing the topics that you are most passionate about. Share the topics through social media, blogs, newsletters, and the like. That way, people will start to understand what you do.
  1. Get Help. Start joining groups that will help you achieve your goal. Find a collective where you can grow your business and become an amazing coach at the same time. Groups like this bring together amazing coaches where you can collaborate and get help at the same time. You will feel motivated and inspired because you will be surrounded by people who understand your struggles and can share your success.

Hang out with people who are in your industry and will share their knowledge and expertise openly and honestly with you.
