While I was in the Health Coach Training Program, I remember the idea of signing up my first client being bit daunting. Okay, who am I kidding – it was totally overwhelming to me.
Other than an initial interview for my teaching job many years earlier, I hadn’t needed to “sell” myself or anything else, for that matter. I had no clue about how to market myself and sign up that first client.
This is why I was so grateful that a valuable part of IIN’s curriculum is business and marketing. The tools and strategies I learned were what helped me actually get myself out into the real world and help people as a Health Coach.
But knowing and doing are two different things. Getting started as a Health Coach meant I needed to take action and use the tools and strategies I learned in the program. It didn’t always feel easy, but because of the way the material was presented in the context of the whole program, it all felt doable (well, most days anyway.)
