Marcia Reynolds on Building a Practice
The following is taken from David’s interview with Marcia Reynolds in 10 Super Coaches.
What were the biggest doubts you had in your early months?
Why would people pay out of their pockets for coaching, especially when I hadn’t completed my training? And then when they paid me, would I really be able to help them shift and create new lives? I suffered from the “fraud factor” as I have now found that almost all new coaches experience.
To overcome this, I just “acted as if”, knowing that if I gave 100 per cent to my clients, really listened and cared about them, I would know what to say. Since coaching is more about facilitation than having answers, I found that I could “be a good coach” faster than I realized.
