what’s truly missing from the experience of building an outstanding coaching practice? It’s the becoming a coach part
You didn’t really get into health coaching because you wanted to be the best marketer or salesperson or even copywriter. It’s more likely that most of that stuff gives you a headache and takes up the time you could be spending working with clients.
You may be finishing a new training, or exploring a more holistic approach to health coaching, and you, like so many before you, feel the immediate pressure to present a thriving business and online presence, before there’s the experience to back it up.
You also know you can’t keep offering free coaching if you’re going to sustain this and grow your impact.

Sarah’s style is an incredibly freeing way to work...I chose to work with Sarah because she was so intentional in creating a space to do her best to understand who I was before we even had our first meeting...Sarah, starting from meeting number one, was able to connect with me on a level that was incredibly perceptive and relatable. She took the time to understand my message and conveyed it back to me in a way that not only was completely accurate but poetic.

I wanted to let you know what a wonderful coach, teacher, listener, cheerleader, etc. you are.
I am amazed how you can listen to what someone says (even if they don't know what they are trying to say), decipher it, and be able to put into words what is really at the heart of the conversation.
Working with people in this way is truly your calling!
