Have you ever been persuaded to take someone on because your financial brain said yes, even though your heart said no?
As a coach, I sometimes get asked to work with less-than-ideal clients.
Here’s the thing: you can totally choose who you work with.
In fact, it’s probably the most important choice you will ever make in your coaching practice.
Your ideal clients will:
- Pay you what you’re worth
- Make you feel great about working with them
- Benefit the most from what you do to help them
- Work with you for longer, making hustling for new business less critical
- Act as advocates for you and your services
The opposite is almost always true of your only-there-cos-they-pay-you clients.
It’s time to get full “Sir Alan” with anyone you’re not happy with, and don’t worry about the money.
I just fired two of my clients, and had two new wonderful, perfect folks join within three days.
Funny how the world works, eh?
