Setting your business up right from the beginning will save you so much time, money, and headache. There are several tools that you should have even if you’re brand new to business, and definitely if you’re looking to scale. Which is why I’m giving you my top 10 list of resources for building a successful coaching business.

“One of the things I like to think about is making decisions from where I want to be, not from where I currently am.” -Emily Williams

First of all, you spend a lot of time collecting emails and finding leads. You need a reliable place to store them and keep track of customer information which is why you need a client relationship management tool. We use ActiveCampaign and love it. We started off with MailChimp but it just wasn’t enough to keep up with our business. 

If you’re planning on having a membership site or to build courses, then you’ll definitely want to look into Kajabi. We are moving away from Kajabi ourselves but not because there is anything wrong with the platform. It’s super easy to use and can be used as a CRM, website builder, funnel builder, shopping cart holder, etc. It’s definitely a good one to look into.

We use several different tools to design the various bits and bobs in our business, but the best one that we’ve found for teams is Canva. It’s an amazing tool that allows team members to work on projects together without losing any work. 

Listen in to hear all of the resources I recommend and check the links below if you’d like to check them out yourself. Most of these links are affiliate links, but I wouldn’t recommend them if I didn’t love them.

If you’re truly ready to create a life better than your dreams, then it’s time to talk about the concept of visualization. What is visualization? It’s when you paint a picture in your mind of what you want your life to LOOK like, but also, focus on the other senses too to make it as […]

Have you felt for some time that you’re meant for something big, something better, deeper, or more meaningful than you have right now? And yet… are you unable to see with complete clarity what that would look like because you feel so disconnected from yourself and Source? Perhaps you long for a different life… to […]

Do you remember the last time your life took a total 180?  Perhaps it was the time you moved to a brand new home (or city), welcomed a new family member, or quit your full-time job to finally pursue your true passion. Or maybe it was a more sudden, shocking, or sad type of change, […]
