How To Avoid “Everything Creep” In Your Coaching Business

episode 23

There’s something great about keeping things simple, light, and lean: it avoids the “everything creep” that could easily swamp your business. 

Throughout my years in the industry, I’ve noticed that coaches exponentially increase their expenses as soon as they see a degree of success in their business.

This is understandable, of course, especially if they’re investing their money and other resources into tools that could make business operations smoother and more efficient.

Today, I discuss what the “everything creep” is and explain why it’s critical to be aware of it. I illustrate coaches’ penchant to try every task management software and other tools to make their businesses more efficient.

I share the story of two of my highly regarded mentors and what they taught me about keeping business operations simple. I also emphasize the importance of focusing our efforts on sales and marketing, especially when we’re running a lean operation and reveal the bare essentials required to run a thriving coaching business.

“‘Everything creep’ is when you burden yourself with added expenses from extra stuff. But it’s nice to get things done with just a cigarette, lighter, and chewing gum à la MacGyver.”
