Your first task is to think about your positioning and then evolve a business model to maximize your profitability. You need to develop a plan that focuses on the following key areas
STEP 1. How you will win clients
The starting point is to focus on your practice positioning. Is there a market area, industry or niche that you wish to specialize? Backup your positioning with good quality documentation
- The documentation describes you, your practice and your experience
- Develop client focused documentation..ie the programs or services that you will offer.
- Start networking and marketing.
STEP 2. How you will build your business model
After you have decided on your niche and developed your core marketing plan you need to build a business model that will maximize your profitability. The typical drivers of the business model are
- The number of new clients that your practice will acquire per month/week/per annum:
- Your Conversion Rate:
- Your Billing Rate:
- The optimum number of hours you need to work to balance lifestyle with work: The business model must be systemised and leveraged.
STEP 3. You need to also work on a personal self development program
This will help you to :
- Improve your experience level
- Improve your understanding of business and management theory.
- Improve your confidence & networking
Why start a business coaching practice?

1. If you look at your key drivers and configure your practice correctly then you can make hundreds of thousands of dollars out of a very rewarding profession.
2. There is little inventory and investment cost.
3. The market is huge
4. Even in a recession your clients need your services.
