Why did you hire a coach? What did you want to see happen in your life at that time
I was looking for ways to boost my income to $100,000 per year, but wasn't sure where to start. I was making a good living as a writer, but seemed to have hit a ceiling in terms of income. I was so close to my financial goal and really wanted to push through it somehow.
My main goals were to:
- Increase my income and break the $100,000 wall I was facing.
- Find a way to make more money without working addtional hours
How did you hear about Kristin and why did you hire her specifically?
I interviewed Kristin for an article and loved her energy and ideas. Plus I spoke with several of her clients for the article and knew she was able to get results for people.
What was memorable or meaningful about your coaching experience with Kristin? Would you change anything?
Kristin is a very successful self-employed businessperson, so she really knew how to motivate me. Her attitude is upbeat, and she believes her clients can do anything they set their minds to (and she's right!). I wouldn't change a thing.
Why do you think coaching works? What about it worked for you?
Coaching helps me look at things from a new angle. For example, when I wanted to boost my income, my only idea was to work harder and write more books and articles. Kristin remarked, "You're not selling anything on your Web site," and we brainstormed ways to create income online that used my strengths as a published writer but didn't require me to churn out more books and articles. I would never have thought of that without Kristin's prodding -- I would have worked harder, not smarter.
What are Kristin's strengths as a coach?
Kristin doesn't just brainstorm ideas -- she helps you implement them, and she's very good with follow-through. For example, she helped me get started with my own e-course and answered all my subsequent questions about structure, content, pricing, and more. She's always very quick to help, and replies to my questions with impressive speed.
What are the tangible results of your coaching experience?
Kristin came up with the idea of teaching an e-course on getting published in magazines. I implemented her idea immediately and in less than a month I ended up with 17 students and nearly $3,500 of extra income. I can't believe it.
What are the intangible results of your coaching experience?
Also, I was reminded to keep an open mind -- with coaching, you'll discover that the path to success may take you in a different direction than you had imagined!
