Why launch a coaching business in 5 days?

I know, it sounds a bit wild. But in today’s fast-paced world, sometimes you’ve just got to dive in and make waves. Quick decisions can lead to big wins. This isn’t just a race against time—it’s about grabbing opportunity by the horns and showing what’s possible when you think outside the box. Stick around and I’ll share the whirlwind journey of our 5-day startup challenge.


Day 1: Define Your Zone of Genius

Start by pinpointing what makes you unique and sought-after. Ask yourself:

  • What am I exceptional at?
  • What am I deeply passionate about?
  • What successes have I achieved that can guide someone else through the same journey?

Your coaching essence will be guiding someone from their current situation to their desired outcome, whether that’s in their health, career, or business. It’s about understanding who you are and how you’ll move your client from point A to point B.

Day 2: Identify Your Ideal Customer Avatar

Now that you’re clear on your strengths, it’s time to define who you’ll serve. Dive deep into research:

  • Browse Google Trends, Facebook groups, Reddit, and Quora.
  • Understand what challenges they’re trying to overcome.
  • Delve into their mindset, needs, and desires.

The best way to gain insights? Speak directly to potential clients. These conversations will offer invaluable information about their pain points, frustrations, and desires.

Day 3: Create and Launch Your Beta Offer

By now, you have clarity on your expertise and your target audience. Day three is about fusing these insights. Locate the intersection of your genius zone and what your potential clients desperately need. This will form the core of your coaching offer.

This step isn’t about perfection. Create a basic framework of your coaching program and test it. Consider a beta launch where you onboard a few clients (potentially at discounted rates or even for free). This approach lets you gather feedback to refine your program further.

For example, your beta offer might be a “90-day program to land a dream job.” You’d work with clients on interview preparation, resumes, and cover letters. By the end, you’ll have valuable feedback and possibly some testimonials to back your expertise.

Day 4: Determine the Logistics

Now, the nuts and bolts. How will you deliver your coaching?

  • Will it be one-on-one or group sessions?
  • Which tools will you use for communication and scheduling?
  • How will you collect payment or feedback?

Setting up these logistics is key to ensuring a smooth experience for both you and your clients.

Day 5: Drive Visibility and Attract Clients

It’s time to let the world know about your coaching services. Utilize your existing networks, both online and offline. Use social media platforms to share valuable content and insights. Engage in relevant groups or forums. 

Also, don’t underestimate the power of word-of-mouth. Encourage your beta clients to share their experiences and results with their network.

Remember, every successful coaching business started with the first step. By following this 5-day plan, you’re laying a solid foundation for your coaching empire. Keep refining, stay committed, and most importantly, continue making a positive impact on the lives of your clients. 

Cheers to your coaching journey!
