Proposals for Coaches

episode 52

Do you even need to send proposals? While they're important for the corporate markets that need everything on paper, I see proposals for coaches as a limiter on a coach's ability to sign new clients.

In my ideal world, coaches would not use proposals, but if you live in the real world there are still some steps you can take to make sure your clients agree to your proposals.

In today’s episode, I talk about ways to improve your proposals and share why I think coaches should not send proposals.

I teach you what to ask the client before sending a proposal and why you need to include validity dates on your offers.

I also give an audience shout-out to Divian Mistry for the wonderful review he recently gave on Apple Podcast.

“As a general rule, if you're providing coaching services, I think the ideal situation is no proposal at all”
