How to Find Your Perfect Clients Without Doing Facebook Ads Even When You Don’t Have a Huge Network
Are you desperate to sign clients before you run out of money?
Do you feel like you’ve tried everything, and nothing is working?
Do you feel like your business is the biggest mess ever?
Do you constantly ask yourself, “Who do I think I am to help someone else when I’m still such a mess?”
Do you find yourself constantly questioning your decision to start this business, wondering if you’ll ever figure it out?
Are you confused about what to do next in your business?
Or maybe you’re worried you…
Don’t have enough experience
Don’t have the right connections
Don’t know where to find your clients
Don’t know how to attract your clients
Don’t know where to start
Don’t have anything valuable to offer
Don’t have the money to build your business
Don’t have support from your family and friends …
And therefore, this is never going to work.
If any of this sounds like how you’re feeling now, then you’re going to want to read every word of this letter!
Like Marie Forleo says…
“Everything Is Figureoutable”
But only if we’re willing to talk about it.
And the last thing we women want to talk about is MONEY
we don’t want to seem selfish
we don’t want to seem greedy
we don’t want people to see us as materialistic
we’re afraid we’ll start worshiping money
we’re embarrassed to admit we want to make money and have more of it
But the truth is ….. we all want to make money
Why else did you start your business?
Yeah, there are other reasons, like …
you wanted to help people
you’re passionate about your niche
you wanted more freedom
you wanted more flexibility
you wanted to be able to work from anywhere
you wanted to be able to travel
BUT … if someone had told you,
“You can have all of those things, BUT you’re not going to make any money in your business”
Would you still have started your new business?
Would you start your business all over again if you knew you’d be working for free indefinitely?
Uh, for me that would be a hard NO.
Let me tell you a story about my client Dorothy …
Dorothy * is a Brooke Castillo certified life coach, like me. She wasn’t afraid to talk about money but struggled to step into an identity for herself that she was a person that made money doing what she loved. She had a tough time believing that she could pay the bills without a paycheck from a full-time job. With my expertise as a Dave Ramsey certified financial coach, we worked together to restructure her personal finances so that she could save money and pay off debt to prepare her for her transition to work full-time in her business.
Then we started working on money in her business. She did everything that the experts said to do, but she wasn’t signing clients. We worked together closely to shift her identity so she could see herself as the expert in her niche, an expert that people were willing to pay.
She left her full-time job and has almost made as much as a life coach as she did in her full-time job, with multiple six figures on the horizon. She is rocking it in her new business!
And another thing …
The other mistake my clients make is – to be fully transparent, I made this mistake too — they believe that all they need to do is build a website and start coaching. It’s sort of like having that first baby. Simple right? Just feed them, change them and soak up all the adorable we want. Then we take them home from the hospital and it’s like, “Why is he still crying? I’ve fed him, I’ve changed him. I don’t know what else to try.”
It can be the same with our new businesses. We get them up and running and it’s like, “Where are the clients? Why are they still not coming?” I don’t know what else to try.
I’m not special … I’m just like you
My husband was freaking out about the savings that we were blowing through in my business. As a new entrepreneur, I had no idea about all the costs that I would incur in my coaching business. Going into this, I naively thought, what expenses? It’s just my time right?
And I’m a former CPA. So, if I can make mistakes with money, anyone can.
I didn’t plan for the investments I would be making to build my business, to grow my business and to grow myself. One-on-one coaching was a necessity. I invested in a group coaching program that focused on creating a business that would support the life I wanted instead of consume my life and everything in it. There were all kinds of other expenses that I didn’t anticipate. Where was all this money going to come from? Some of it came from savings, some of it came from credit cards and some from a home equity line of credit.
Where did I find the time? I work on this with my clients too, just like I’ve worked on time with my one-on-one coach. She taught me how to effectively prioritize, plan and execute so that I don’t have to give up my life or my business.
“You mean I can have both?” YES, you can!
I saved a lot of time by learning how to make good decisions quickly and effectively.
I didn’t have a huge network, I wasn’t booking a lot of consults and I didn’t build my program before I signed clients. And you don’t have to either. Without those things, I’m generating revenue to fund the next investments in my business, all because I learned the secrets of how to make money in my new business. These are the same things my clients wanted help with.
That’s why I created…
The Business Money Intensive
A 6-month, one-on-one coaching program where you’ll
learn how to remove the obstacles preventing you from
making money in your new business…
…the kind of money that gives you the opportunity to create the impact that you desired when you started your business.
By the end of our 6 months together, you will know exactly what you need to do in your business and you will know exactly how to make money doing it.
Here’s what we’ll do together during our 6 months of coaching…
One-on-one virtual coaching sessions with me, a Life Coach School Certified Life Coach, a Dave Ramsey Certified Financial Coach
Private coaching support through your personal Slack workspace – for those times that you’re coaching yourself and you just need another set of eyes on your work
Weekly emails with additional concepts and tools to get you thinking in a different direction – sometimes all you need is a different way to think about your problem
Collaborate with me on what you’re doing in your business
Learn the same tools used by my personal coach and that I use to coach myself
Support, compassion and encouragement along with a healthy dose of direct honest observations that will help you get unstuck and move you forward in your business
The benefit of my experience working with other women like you — seeing the patterns and trends over all the women I’m working with allows me to quickly recognize where you’re stuck and brainstorm with you about how you want to move forward
My approach is not one-size-fits-all – it’s completely tailored to your specific situation.
Even though I see a lot of the same patterns in all my clients, their solutions are unique to their specific situation.
How I coach you to the solution in your situation could be completely different from how I might coach another client with a different situation.
To see if you’re a good fit for this intense coaching program…
Here’s how it helps …
Create the impact you wanted when you decided to start your business
Know exactly what you need to do in your business
Know exactly how to make money doing it
Stop doing the things in your business that don’t move you forward
Feel confident in what you have to offer the people you most want to help
Make time to do the things in your business that make you money
Stop stressing about making enough money to pay the bills
Stop worrying about where the next client will come from
Stop wondering if you should just give up and go back to work full-time
Stop living with the idea that:
You’ll never figure it out
That I told you this would never work out
You’re a fraud thinking that you could be successful in your own business
You’re not good enough
How do you know this will work for you?
Because it’s working for me and it’s working for my clients.
When I started working with Amanda, she believed that she was made for coaching and she wanted to believe that she could make money in her business, but she had a hard time believing that she was made for money. Here’s what she had to say about working with me:
“To make money I’ve had to really feel into the deeper layers of my current results. Jill holds a safe and curious space for me to see things that I used to gloss over. Understanding those things is what’s helping me grow. Since working with Jill, life has felt, and continues to feel, much cleaner and simpler, and that impacts all the parts of my life, not just my business.”
“Thank you for all your work to make this such a transformative experience.”
When Jamie decided to work with me, she thought she just needed help learning how to budget, but what she came away was so valuable in moving forward in her business.
“What I realized was that there were a lot of thoughts in the way of my confidence, like ‘I can’t trust myself with money’. That was probably the biggest one. I completely shifted that and saw how it’s not true at all. “
TOGETHER IS BETTER
When you implement the plan that you and I develop TOGETHER, you WILL generate revenue in your business because my goal is to always overdeliver for my clients. I love each and every one of my clients and I treat them like family. I’m right beside you every step of the way, because I want you to thrive so that you can help your clients. Together we can create a better world to live in.
When is the right time to do this?
The right time to do this is whenever you’re ready to start making money.
Now is the right time for you to jump on this if you’re tired of:
Endlessly searching for answers in other programs, in courses that you may or may not implement
The stress, worry, overwhelm, confusion about what to do next in your business
Time spent away from your family and friends, hiding because you feel ashamed that you’re not further along and feeling defeated that you haven’t figured this out
Not doing what you were uniquely made to do
Now is NOT the right time to jump on this if you would rather:
Keep doing what you’ve been doing, even though it hasn’t worked so far
Continue to pile up debt trying to make your business work
Give up on your dream of successfully running your own business
Not fulfill the purpose and calling on your life
Not help other women just like you that ONLY you are equipped to help
Give up the dream of having the freedom and flexibility in your life that you so desperately craved when you left your corporate job
What Is This Coaching Really Worth?
You decide what it’s worth to you to:
Sign your ideal clients that WANT to pay you to help them
Know EXACTLY how to keep making money in your business
Learn how to compound your results over the life of your business
If the only thing it does for you is…
Help you make good decisions in your business
Help you move forward and grow your business
Help you get unstuck
Learn what works and why what you’ve been doing hasn’t worked
Feel better about where you are in your business
What would it be worth to you?
What would it be worth if it helped you do ALL of these and MORE?
What Are Your Options?
You don’t have to work with me. You can go it alone. You might eventually get there. You might beat the odds.
But if you don’t…
And you become one of the 20% of small businesses that fail in the first year or one of the 50% that do not survive beyond Year Five …
Imagine how you’ll feel when you give up on everything you envisioned for your life and your business
Imagine how you’ll feel as you’re erasing the vision of your million-dollar life from your vision board
Which would you rather have?
The discomfort of shutting down your dreams and living with the shame that you gave up, wondering if you really did EVERYTHING you could to make it work,
My full support walking alongside you as you learn how to make money and grow your business?
What will you do?
… instead of taking advantage of this opportunity …
Will you keep spending thousands on courses, events, programs and travel to do these things? What has that gotten you so far?
Keep working countless hours doing things that haven’t worked?
Quit your business and go back to working for someone else full-time, spending all your time making their dreams come true?
You were made for MORE …
Just imagine what you’ll feel like next year when you look back and see what you’ve been able to accomplish in your business, how you’ve been able to impact your clients, how you’ve changed their lives, the impact you’ve had in the world, the financial impact you’ve had on your family, how you’ve changed the trajectory of your family’s money story.
