111: So You Want To Be a Coach?

Punk Rock HR Episode 111: If you want to be an executive or career coach, you have to approach doing so like a business, not a side hustle. You need a business plan, you need to know how to run a business, and you need to determine who you can help and who you cannot help. In this episode, I am sharing four pieces of advice for those interested in starting a coaching business of any kind.   In this episode you'll hear: Why creating a business plan is a necessity, plus some resources to help you write one. The importance of knowing your "Why?" Understanding and acknowledging your skills and why you need to be ready to turn down clients you know you cannot help. Why executive coaching is not a side hustle.    Resources from this episode: Business Plan Template Small Business Administration Jennifer McClure Laurie on Instagram Laurie on LinkedIn Read more from Laurie Work with Laurie   *** EPISODE CREDITS: If you like this podcast and are thinking of creating your own, consider talking to my producer, Danny Ozment.
