Should You Go Into Business With Your Clients?

episode 141

It’s fairly common for a coach’s clients to want to partner up.

As the coach being approached, you need to know how to respond to these propositions and recognize when to accept and when to decline them.  

Today, I talk about how to respond to a client’s offer to go into business together.

So, I offer some questions to consider before answering.

And, I share a story illustrating the importance of making sure your new role lies within your expertise, and I note the need to consider how much control you would give up in accepting any new role.

Then, I note that every business deal is more complicated in reality than it first seems, and I advise you to move slowly when approached by anyone with a business offer. 

“Business plans on paper are very, very easy to conjure up–and in reality, you may find yourself juggling an entire situation that you are not in control of and trading out all of the luxuries of self-employment as a coach that you have built for yourself so far.”  – Matthew Kimberley
