19. Why I left the Coaching industry and what's nextMay 08, 2023
What's right for us isn't always easy...
If you had of asked me a year ago if I would ever quit business coaching I would have said you're crazy.
But here we are.
Life is so interesting sometimes...
I look back at the past 6 months and feel that life was moving me in this direction for a reason.
It first started with my business struggling to make consistent income month after month... this was particularly difficult for me as I have spent so much time, effort and money building my own business over the years all to have it not working for me. It had me questioning my skills and my ability to actually be successful in this industry.
Then I discovered the world of unethical marketing and coaching practices in this industry and realized I was participating and teaching some of those methods. Learning about all that had me to take a step back from my business and re-evaluate how I was doing things and what needed to change in order for me to feel good about continuing in online business coaching.
Then a family member passed away unexpectedly at the age of 51 and it got me taking a hard look at my own life and asking myself is what I'm doing making me happy? We don't know how much time we have left on this earth, and with that being said, I want to be certain I am doing everything I can to live my life in the best ways possible FOR ME. No should, have to's or ought to's.
Then the day came where I knew in my heart it was time to shut it all down. And it was all of the above (and more) that led me to this decision.
I outline it all for you here in Episode 19 of the HOW IT'S REALLY GOING PODCAST
What's right for us isn't always easy
But continuing on a path because of should's or obligation's isn't the answer either.
Continuing to market myself as a business coach was me trying to FORCE something that just wasn't fitting anymore.
Force = Resistance.
From the moment I decided to shut down my business coaching services to focus on Done-For-You work, everything changed for the better.
More clients came flooding in, my income increased, things felt so easy and I'm having more fun!
When you surrender to what's no longer serving you and stop resisting what's meant for you, everything gets light and easy.
Funny how that works.
