I’ve been an in-demand coach, consultant and mentor for over 29 years after enjoying a successful corporate career. By selling my professional services, I’ve fed my family, put a roof over their heads and sent my son to an Ivy League college. I’ve had time to be the board president for two non-profits, been able to live where I want, travel when I want and can turn down work that I don’t want to do. I’ve written four profitable self-published books and served clients in the US, Canada and Mexico.
I’m telling you this not to impress you but to encourage you that you too can be highly successful at selling your own professional services as a life coach, consultant, speaker or author. I know because I have helped every one of these types of professionals reach their goals.
When I started out, I knew less than ZERO about selling professional services. Since then, I’ve been engaged as the Director of Marketing for a national seminar and consulting company and as the VP of Marketing for a 20-year-old global consulting firm with over 550 affiliated coaches and consultants.
Over the years, I have been a guest lecturer at the University of California, Ohlone College, Redwood College and John F. Kennedy University in addition to having presented over 250 other seminars, workshops, and webinars. Along the way, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t, made mistakes and had resounding victories… all of which I share with my clients!
