The second we got exposed to inspiring individuals, we wanted to do exactly the same. Every book we read made us want to be an author. Every time we saw a speaker we wanted to be on stage or record a video.
Once we got our coaching qualifications, we thought we were made for life, and building a business would be easy. We were highly passionate and motivated with the tools to deal with anything.
But reality kicked in.
We knew nothing about running a business. We probably knew a lot less then you reading this.
During our first year, we turned over less than £1000 in ticket sales and had sold less than £5000 of one to one coaching.
While we had all the passion, we simply did not know the foundations of a coaching business.
