I've been helping coaches start and
accelerate their coaching practices for five years - and I've seen some wonderful
results. I've seen them cause life-changing breakthroughs with their clients,
a month after only three months, and even get a job as an internal
corporate coach! I went on to start a global coach training school to share my
techniques on a much grander scale, and to reach more coaches than I could do
Yet my mentoring program and my training school had
the same drawback. The good news was you got personalised, tailored attention.
The bad news was that because they were time based, coaches still had to pay hundreds
or thousands of dollarsto access the techniques that helped me grow my business, and
the businesses of now over two hundred coaches.
after years of hands-on research, personally mentoring sixty coaches, and founding
a training school, I've finally released:
Manual! A Step by Step Guide to Building Your Coaching Practice
Shipping Now Available)
Yes! Finally I've compiled
everything I know about starting up your coaching practice into one easy, information
packed Manual. In fact it's more than a Manual - with all the hands-on exercises
I've included, it's practically a course.
This is my absolute
best material. It's what helped my coaches grow their
businesses from 'Never Coached' to 'Have Coached Fifty People'. It's how I laid
the foundation for a coaching business that ultimately grew to
grossing six figurescoaching two days a week. And, it's now the foundation for the
business building tools used by a major coach training school.
Some of you may have heard my Speech to the International Coach Federation Conference
entitled: 'Getting the First Fifty Clients'. If you've listened to this Speech,
you'll be thrilled to know The CoachStart Manual fills in all the holes!
It's much bigger in scale, and covers the critical foundational work that
I couldn't hope to cover in a fifty minute speech. You'll find the two resources
go very well hand in hand.
I believe many training schools
do an excellent job of teaching you 'how to coach'. Unfortunately many (not all)
seem to fall down on the 'how to get clients'
part of the equation. You'll find The CoachStart Manual an excellent
companion - regardless of which school you finally choose, or are currently enrolled

"The Manual has been
a great help in taking a number of decisions, such as what people to concentrate
on. The exercises in the Manual were helpful - AND have encouraged me to
have faith in my skills as a coach! Your manual has also encouraged me
to approach people for a trial session. Thank you."

ICF? You'll get an answer to these questions and more.

Will people listen to me? What right do I have to coach? What if I get stuck?
You'll bust through these questions which hold most new coaches back.

to narrow my focus now? Would this group actually pay me? (And there's an exercise
to help determine what your niche might be!)

in a way that contributes to you and the client. I actually include a little extra

What this Manual is NOT
to be clear on this, so you know up front what you're getting.
it's not a book on coaching techniques. It's a book on how to set up your
coaching business, and how to get your first clients. Oh
sure - we'll cover some fundamental principles, and how to do a coaching session
to make sure you can get started. But for formal training to improve your coaching
techniques you'll need a school and/or a book specifically for this.
it's not generic business advice about, for example, the accounting or
legal issues involved in setting up a business. (I figure you can get that anywhere).
We'll go into detail on the issues specific to coaching - the stuff you
can't get just anywhere.
- it's not fluff. It's not
discussion, and it's not talking about the coaching profession or what
you could do. It's a 'How To' Instruction Manual showing you everything
you need to do to go from 'Never Coached' to 'Have Coached Fifty People'.
great. It's obviously brilliant. But how many hundreds of dollars do I have to
spend for this Mini-Course on setting up my practice? $997? $497?"
clients pay US$3,100 or EUR2,3000 - via my CoachStart Mentoring Program
- for the information you're getting today. (Think about it - even if you read
only one of the nineteen chapters in this Manual, what difference could
that make to your revenue over the next twelve months? $2,000? $5,000?)
to make this accessible to as many people as possible, I've set the price of The
CoachStart Manual at a low US$197. $97 (You
may choose your own currency on the final order page).

"The Coach Start Manual is absolutely fabulous! Although I've been
coaching for six years now, my practice is still far from lucrative because I'm
not a good marketer. I'm certain that I can pick up some wonderful tips
and I cannot compliment you enough on the expertise and industry you've
invested. If ever a coach was walking-the-talk YOU are."

"I 'inhaled' the manual
and loved it. I loved it so much that I bought the First Fifty Clients package
and inhaled that as well! I found that you gave very practical advice and
I particularly liked the 'sample' dialogues that a coach might have with
a prospect (warm and hot invitations) and the sample script.
I have now
adapted it for my own style and practice it every opportunity I get. Both the
CoachStart Manual and the First Fifty Clients documentation have fired me up with
more confidence and enthusiasm to get going. Thanks for such a great and

is now growing, and a great deal of the kickstarts I've had have emerged from
your advice in The Coachstart Manual. Brilliant! In the beginning I was
using it a lot as a Manual. Now I'm still using it - more like a valuable reference
tool to keep on fine-tuning my practice fundamentals. Super!"

I've already said, if for any reason you aren't thrilled with the step by step
