How to Develop Consistency and Discipline in Your Coaching Business for BIG RESULTS

The C and the D word... it's about to get real in here! 

Yes we're talking consistency and discipline because seriously they play a HUGEEEEE role in my unleveling my business this year. 

I've learnt so much about myself, I've realized that even with all these smarts and skills if I'm not consistent and don't implement a ton of discipline when it comes to building my business? My smarts and skills will only get me so far... 

It's different to college when you can cram the night before and ace the exam... entrepreneurship and building a business based around service is about the long haul of consistency and building habits that stand the test of time. 

So, I want to share some of my best tips I learnt the past 6 months of this year and how you can use them going forward to ramp up your consistency and the results you see going forward.

Thing One: Believe, Know, Understand that Clarity comes from Action. 

Planning and writing and then planning some more will only get you so far. Honestly, if I hadn't just started taking action and then refined everything as I went I would not be where I am today. 

Get started, and perfect your process as you go. 

Thing Two: Structure leads to Consistency AND Freedom

(plan your days, break your week down, sample of my new weekly set up, one thing at a time) - days to follow up, days specific for new content, days for client calls, days for BIG projects etc 

Plan your business around your life if having a lifestyle based freedom business is a priority. 

Here is my week at a glance to give you an idea: 

Sundays 

  • workout 
  • it's a day off but I do...
  • plan my week (long journalling session, or quiet time) 
  • family time - me and my mini me get to spend QT together on homework, activities etc 

Mondays 

  • workout 
  • content planning and outlining 
  • focussed business time* 

Tuesdays 

  • workout 
  • content creation 
  • focussed business time* 

Wednesdays 

  • workout 
  • client day 

Thursdays 

  • workout 
  • content creation 
  • focussed business time*

Fridays 

  • workout 
  • weekly wrap up 
  • half-days 

Saturdays 

  • day off

Focussed Business Time* is time devoted to me intentionally working ON my business, without distractions. This is one of the main reasons why I've been able to work 2 - 4 hours MAX daily most days of the week. 

Wednesdays and Thursdays are my most labor intensive days. I spend these days on client calls, doing sales calls and putting in any extra time I need to in my business. 

Content Creation is VERY important in my business so 2 days of the week are designated to creating that content, even though I create content DAILY during my focussed business time. 

As you can see working out is a priority, it's my one hobby that I make time out for every single day.

(yes, I need more hobbies - working on it... does going to the beach count?) 

It pays to plan, trust me so download your FREE Daily Sales and Client Attraction Planner below Now

Thing Three: Use tools to help you Out

(google calendar for your planning and scheduling, google apps for work for organization, and I'm planning to look into asana again to step my game up) 

My schedule is color coded inside google calendar, so every week I update it, I sync my scheduling apps with it and so at a glance I know exactly how my week is set up. 

Thing Four: Set alarms and actually stick to them 

My phone alarms like 25 times per day, seriously. I have reminders set to let me know it's time for lunch (yes I need to be reminded), it's time to get ready to start my business day, I have an alarm when it's time for bed (on iPhone I am loving the "bedtime option" - a girl needs her sleep!), I have pop up reminders throughout the day just to make sure I stay on task and get the most out of my day. 

Thing Five: Schedule time for lunch, rest and recharging

Working with clients takes a lot of energy, you want to give your best. I spend 1 -2 hours BEFORE I pick my daughter up resting so I can spend my time fully focussed on her when it's our time and not counting down until bedtime.

 It's also important because I need enough energy to spend on client projects, and any other loose ends throughout the day. 

If you aren't getting your meals in and getting enough rest then you won't be present enough to enjoy the freedom you're working towards, the people you're working so hard for and you won't be able to produce your best work and content (reducing the impact you make in your business) 

Thing Six: Get Real with yourself.

What does your inconsistency cost you? A client? Being fully booked? Put a $ sign on it. It's time for a reality check. 

When I realised that not being consistent was actually costing me money in my business, when I got real with myself and saw that if I was super consistent in my business I could 10x my income and FAST - Consistency became a big priority. 

BIG PICTURE darling, big picture. 

Thing Seven: mind over everything

It's all in your mind, you need to everyday just make the decision that you're going to stay consistent. Recreate yourself as a disciplined business and decide to boss up and up level the way you are in your business. 

Once you conquer your mind and the way you see yourself - building the habits will be a cinch. 

This is where acting as if and implementing a solid daily practice that restructures the very way you think comes into play.

How to Build a "Booked Out" Brand that Attracts your Dream Coaching Clients

You have a social media post ready to go... but you really don't want to publish it because well, your graphics suck, no one ever clicks your post, double taps for that coveted instagram heart or likes it on Facebook. 

You're starting to think that you're doomed. 

You've heard about Branding but you really don't have the budget to spend thousands on a new website, a spiffy wardrobe so you can have that photoshoot in Paris that seems to be the craze these days and well... you don't have the plane ticket for Paris either. 

What on earth are you going to do? 

Most coaches think that they need all the above and more before they can get started... no, no and no. 

All you need is STRONG BRANDING. 

And while yes - Branding does include fonts, colors, photos, graphics and more... it's actually about: What people - most importantly your ideal client say about you when you aren't there

Branding is what people think and say about you when you can't explain it all to them. - That's it. 

So at the core? You don't need all that fancy stuff... you need to focus on what will get your ideal clients attracted to you, what will convert them to fans and what will help them convert them faster into paying clients.

This week here on the blog I'm running a FREE Challenge complete with a bonus branding bundle just for you. The bundle will include all the daily bonuses to help you take action and build a Booked out Coaching Brand - and don't worry if you stumbled across this after the week is over you can still join in and snag the bundle. 

Let's build your a brand you're proud of shall we? 

build a booked out client attractive brand

Day 1: Stand for Something or Fall for Anything 

While that quote isn't directly related to our task of the day, it's worth keeping in mind. You want to figure out exactly what your brand stands for. 

It won't matter one bit if your brand is gorgeous, and decked out with all the branding bells and whistles if you're attracting the wrong people. 

Today's task is super simple: Write a clear statement that tells exactly who you work with. 

Example: I work with female service providers who want to monetize their services and build a profitable business online... without sacrificing their lifestyle. 

Your turn: I work with ___________ who want ____________ and I help them ________________. 

Let's take a BIG step further, you want to make an IMPACT with your brand, the bigger your IMPACT the bigger your INCOME. 

Example: My brand will help female service providers build profitable businesses online so they can live their life by design and not have to sacrifice and deny themselves what they want and deserve. 

This is more for you, so you stay focussed on your bigger why, and it helps you stay laser focussed on how you want your potential clients to FEEL as well which is a huge part of branding. 

I created a quick cheat sheet for you so you can brainstorm and create your own statement and your own mission for your brand. 

Download it below now. 

Day 2: Your brand's Ideal Client 

Today we're going to get crystal clear on exactly WHO your brand will attract. (this will make it way easier for your brand to make a BIG IMPACT and get you the results you deserve) 

So yes, I'm going to ask you to first get clear on who they actually are, luckily I have to posts to help you out here and here. 

But after you're done above we're going even deeper. 

There are 7 BIG Questions I would love for you to dig into. 

  1. Describe your ideal client where they are RIGHT NOW
  2. Describe them where they want to be. (thanks to you) 
  3. What obstacles/ challenges are they facing / do they face that's keeping them from getting there? 
  4. What is the turning point in their life that's causing them to realize they have a problem? 
  5. What are they doing to alleviate that problem? 
    • what are they searching for on YouTube and Google? like literally typing into the search bar? 
    • whose IG accounts are they following and WHY? 
    • what blogs/ books do they read? 
    • Any podcasts they religiously tune into - WHY do they? 
  6. WHY is it such a big deal that they get a solution to their problem? 
    • answer this from your perspective and from theirs 
  7. HOW does your brand help them? 
    • why is your brand THE ANSWER? 

I've included a handy cheatsheet to help you brainstorm your way to the answers for these questions, just head below and get access to the FREE Branding Bundle, where you'll get access to all the resources for each day!
