I was going through the archives over the weekend and thought I’d provide some background to my story. You might find this comical or inspiring…. or both.
Well it all started here. This is the Van I used to sleep in to do seminars that I paid for with the last of my money. I remember it clearly because this Van cost me $1000. Not sure if I over paid…..
Then after learning how to coach people I decided to run a seminar in Jan of 2016 at The Toukley Beachcomber Hotel on the Central Coast. If you don’t know where it is, its pretty much the place you go if you wish to be homeless or visit one of the 10 nursing homes Toukley has to offer within a 10km radius. I guess you could call it ‘retirement paradise.’
Hey look after handing out flyers on the street for 8 hours a day for 2 months straight, 1 person decided to show up to my seminar. This is Darren (who is a legend by the way)….
Then I remember I moved to Sydney and in 2017 I hired my first employee. This is Ronny. I called him the Chilean legend. He helped me with my admin and student support and was making sure I didnt go insane from the 14 hour+ days. He was very good at telling me to sort the pieces of paper I had all over my floor that contained all my business information. I guess you could say I had alot to learn…
I tried all kinds of things to get leads. On this occasion I thought it would be a good idea to drive to Wollongong and put up a stand at a psychic fair. I think I spent more money at other peoples stands than what I made at my own…
Anyway, fast forward to Nov 2019. Then this happened…
That was 143 people who all turned up to my event. So how did go from 1 person in jan of 2016 to 143 in Nov 2019?
Well it was these things that I implemented that wish I implemented years sooner..
1. A Clearly defined niche
2. A social media plan
3. Paid advertising.
4. Systems and processes in my business.
5. A strong sales system.
6. Learnt how to build a brand.
If you are someone who is earning less than $30,000 per month in your coaching business I can guarantee you that any or all of those 6 things are not where they need to be.
If I can go from sleeping in my Van to running Australia’s biggest seminars for Coaches then I believe you also can achieve your dreams and goals.
All I did was ask for help.

One of the most powerful words for growth I believe.
Love and light,
