This summer marks the two year anniversary since the release of the Coaching Business Builder. Part workbook, part planner, the CBB as I affectionately call it, grew out of more than a decades worth of coaching conversations with coaches growing their businesses.
With us stepping into the month of September this week, it's an optimum time to start a new planner. Pick up a digital copy or $29 US you'll get an immediate download of right now.
Over the last two years since the release of the book, some of the key highlights have been:
Hearing from readers and coaches about how they are using the Coaching Business Builder in clarifying their vision, building out their strategies, and tracking it with the planner. Over the last year I've heard from coaches in all continents (except Antarctica), who are using the book as a resource in growing their businesses.
Seeing my own clients get clarity and traction in their business development efforts. I am always amazed how the different planning resources connect in for different clients. Some love the Annual Planning, others the monthly planning, and others the content development tools. Just the other day my co-host at the Remote Pathways podcast was showing how she converted the daily planner into a dry-erasable resource!
Connecting with groups of coaches through many presentations about coaching business development, and the importance of planning, doing and tracking while growing a business. I've enjoyed speaking to many ICF chapters, coaching conferences, and coach training schools. Please email me if you'd like to book me for a presentation virtually this fall or winter to your coaching group.
Hosting the Coaching Biz Growth Lab twice a month on Friday afternoons. This bi-weekly group serves as a place to connect, pause and get coaching around your business. A monthly article and template, along with Quarterly Get Things Done afternoons make it a budget friendly coaching group. Join us for the next 6 months (to the end of January 2021) at a special rate of $695 US. Payable in 1 or 2 installments. Contact me to see if this program is a good fit for you.
Incorporating it into Business Design VIP Days where I get to work one-on-one with a coach to help them build out their business plan or program plans. Whether it's a half day or a full day I've been enjoying these a lot in recent months as coaches have realized it's so important to dedicate chunks of time to their planning with another thinking partner. Contact me to see how this could benefit you in your work.
The spin-off of the CBB to PlanDoTrack for Virtual and Remote Professionals at the end of 2018. With the publication of this workbook and analog planner at the end of 2018/early 2019, little did I know what 2020 would bring! IF you work with virtual and remote professionals, do pick up a copy of PlanDoTrack and gift it to them. You can get hardcopies via Amazon and PDF copies via our Potentials Realized store.
Over the last year I've also trained up a number of Certified Facilitators who lead PlanDoTRack and/or Coaching Business Builder in their businesses as well. If you need to scale programming to a larger intersection of coaches or remote professionals, please let me know. We've got large groups covered.
I'd love to hear your stories. How has the Coaching Business Builder or PlanDoTrack supported you with your business growth?
This month, in honor of the 2nd anniversary I'll be returning to Instagram for daily posts. If you don't follow the CBB feed, connect here.
Stay tuned as I resume regular blog posts around business development and building a coaching business! They'll be coming to you weekly.
