The reason I decided to share this episode is because I have been outraged and extremely disappointed by some of the business I’ve worked with recently. I have learned a lot from these mistakes, and it has been humbling and embarrassing.

As a small business owner who works primarily with 1-on-1 coaching clients, customer service and satisfaction is essential. I do everything in my power to help my clients be successful in their career transitions and to treat them with respect and understanding in the process.

My clients get the results they were looking for, which is why my business has been able to grow quite quickly this past year.

My business is built on past successes, not fancy marketing.

When a prospective client is considering working with me, I do not take that lightly. I understand that it is usually a significant financial investment and I honor their decision whether they choose to work with me or not. If they do choose to invest in me as their coach, you had better believe I do what I can to go above and beyond their expectations.

All that being said, what I will be sharing in this episode is my own rules for evaluating financial decisions for my business including things like business coaching, courses, services, contractors and technology.

I challenge you to create your own rules for evaluating financial investments, or adapt mine. And, I welcome you to use rules like this to evaluate working with me if you’re in search of a career coach. I promise to run my business and offer my services with integrity, and with you in mind.

In this episode I’ll share:

  • Some background on my most regretted financial investments
  • My 8 new rules for evaluating my financial decisions
  • Why we should be prepared for an onslaught of marketing messages encouraging to spend more post-COVID 19 lockdown
