Yes, you traded in the dull, same old routine of a j-o-b for running your own business…but in the process, it may often feel as if you also traded in certainty for feeling anxious.

Every piece of running your business is demanding that you step up and take action in ways you’ve probably never had to do before. Writing, speaking, marketing, pricing your services, creating programs, asking people to promote you, giving discovery sessions, hosting workshops or teleseminars, understanding shopping carts and autoresponders, figuring our your niche…

Sure, it’s a lot to handle. But what contributes to that overwhelm the most is doubt and indecision.

Which is where you often need a shot of courage.

So how do you find your courage when you’re afraid?

How do you stand in your power when you’re being challenged with tasks and opportunities that you’ve never done before?

Having lived through too many “I need a shot of courage” moments to count, I’m happy to share 3 of my best practices tips with you. I just have one request: Use these this week! Courage is a muscle that you can make strong very quickly, with just the tiniest bit of practice.

And trust me, if you’re in business for yourself, every bit of strengthening your courage muscle that you can do will pay you back a hundred fold. I promise!

I recently received this email:

"Kendall, I LOVE your newsletter. You always have something fresh to say to your readers. How do you manage to come up with new and interesting things to write about every single week? I’m struggling to get a newsletter out even once a month! Can you offer any suggestions to someone desperate for content?"

How to shorten your coaching sessions (saving you time)

Longer sessions lead to you feeling drained, burned out and over-delivering…and you risking your clients getting antsy or worse, a little bored.

Be honest, have you ever felt the bite of jealousy when you hear about someone else reaching six or seven figures, selling out their workshop or filling their programs?

No woman wants to admit to feeling jealous. It’s a feeling that comes from a small place within us, where we feel less-than in some way.

Which is why many women are reluctant to admit to feeling jealous, preferring instead to paste a smile on their face and exclaim, “Oh, I’m so happy for you!” when all the time, inside, they’re feeling the burn.

So is there a way to turn jealousy into a positive experience? One than can help you break through a major obstacle that’s been standing between you and creating greater success for yourself in your business?

Yes! Which is why I’m sharing with you today 3 compassionate strategies to help you quickly transform feelings of jealousy so you can stay on purpose with your vision and create more income in your business.

Your goal here is to use any feelings of jealousy as a tool to help you heal your relationship with money so that more of the GOOD green can flow into your life.

What Clients Want and Aren’t Telling You

When I first started coaching over 14 years ago, I was taught to “let the client lead the agenda.”

The problem with this approach is it put me in a reactive position as their coach (meaning, I followed their lead, responding to what they decided to coach on), rather than a proactive position, where I could coach my client and really help them accelerate their progress.

Plus, the problem I discovered with this old style approach is that it opened the door to hearing, “I’m not sure what I want to coach on today” which resulted in higher client drop out rates.

To make it worse, I felt I was hiding out, not speaking my truth and holding back from giving my clients what they needed to thrive and excel.

Finally, one day, I had enough so I threw out the rule book and created my own method of coaching.

Here is what I did: First, I started introducing content in many of their coaching calls. Next, I began weaving in training (complete with handouts, worksheets and checklists) so they felt excited to be learning something new. Then, I began consciously putting them on a step-by-step path with assignments that I KNEW would work for them.

Their reaction? My clients LOVED it, and my business took off!

If you’re a coach trained in the “old school” method, or you’re new to coaching and you haven’t quite found your footing yet, this new paradigm of blending content with coaching is very exciting.

The key is for you to know how much content to include in your coaching sessions, and even more importantly, WHAT content your clients are most likely to pay you to deliver. Here are 3 easy steps to help get you started.

Are You Asking Your Clients These Powerful Coaching Questions?

Click here if you would rather listen to this article.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Have you ever asked a client to do something you knew would scare the heck out of them?

Or held firm to requesting a client get something done in a ridiculously short time frame?

Or clearly stated to a client that the story they are telling themselves is keeping them stuck?

Actions like these (taken from my Courageous Coaching® training) challenge your clients to step past fear, to face their growing edge, and to astonish themselves with what they can accomplish.

And they challenge YOU to stop playing it safe, to stop worrying what someone will think of you, and to quit being so nice.

If you’re not regularly challenging your clients then you’re at great risk of losing clients and will have difficulties commanding higher fees.

So, how do you balance being feminine…and edgy?

How do you challenge a client to do more and to be more than they thought they could…without being a bully?

The key is knowing 3 simple secrets that I’m delighted to share with you now. Integrate these into your coaching and you’ll have clients who get results and who adore you for holding their best interests at heart even when you get tough with your coaching.

Gaining Your Client’s Love + Respect

Click here if you would rather listen to this article.

When you sign on a client do you feel joyous, happy and excited?

And what about after the initial rush passes…do you feel deserving and confident your new client made an awesome choice in choosing YOU to help them?

Or do you let a thread of doubt creep in…wondering if perhaps you’re going to fail them in some way.

First, know that your path and your client’s met at this time for a purpose, and that purpose is for you to show up fully in your brilliance and to come from a place of deep, caring service.

Which doesn’t mean you have to turn yourself inside-out to please, accommodate unreasonable demands on your time, or put up with bad behavior such as missed coaching/consulting sessions, late payments or excuses about why they haven’t gotten their butt into action.

You deserve respect.

And respect starts within YOU.

So in your coaching/consulting relationship, here are 3 rituals you can do to create respect and establish a close-knit working relationship with your client.
