How to Start Your Coaching Business from Scratch in Less than 90 Days with Kimberly Bolton (Ep91)

Spoiler alert: You don’t need a ton of entrepreneurial experience to launch your own consulting or coaching business


If you’re like a lot of aspiring consulting or coaching business owners, you may have thought, “I’d love to become my own boss, but I don’t have enough entrepreneurial experience or skills!”

And if that’s you, you’re not alone! This is a common barrier when it comes to taking the leap from being an employee into full-time consulting or coaching business ownership.

But here’s the thing. The belief that you “should already know” how to launch a business, market yourself, land clients, and deliver results as a consultant or coach is a total myth. It’s a false belief on the same level as you have to fix your car before you take it to the repair shop, clean your house before the house cleaner shows up, or get healthy before you go to the doctor.

I want to show you why accepting that “You don’t already know how to do this” is EXACTLY what you need to fast-track your business launch and your success. To do that, I’m going to share the inspiring story of my Brand Messaging & Positioning client, Kimberly Bolton

Kimberly transformed her 20+ year career as an educational leader into her dream coaching business focused on teacher mental health and stress resilience in less than 90 days…even though she had never been an entrepreneur before. 

Her example is proof that you can accelerate your launch of a business and breakthrough brand by first embracing what you DON’T know.

Tune in to hear more about Kimberly’s story that totally debunks that “I should already know how to do this” myth.

Here’s a glance at this episode…
