Coach Acquires 1st Two Business Coaching Clients Within First 90 Days
By Eric Dombach on February 5, 2009
I have acquired my first and second client within 1 week during October. My first client is a member of a BNI group that I joined and is a young couple with a HVAC business. They started their business from scratch 8 years ago and now want to grow the business, better utilize employees and find more time for the owner to perform sales and marketing activities. I signed them on for $450 per month.A week later, I met with two brothers, CEO and President of a global software development company with a development organization of over 250 employees located in India. These very technical minded brothers have developed an excellent niche set of software tools and want to grow their business. The President learned about my company and immediately called to review his business and asked me to help them grow. After 8 hours in a complimentary coaching session, the two brothers told me they had never spent that much time talking about the ‘business’ of their business. They told me they wanted my leadership and business tools to help them develop the internal processes to enable profitable growth. I signed them on for $3500: $1750 per month, plus $1750 for the strategic planning process. I spent 2 hours the next day developing the coaching agenda and beginning strategic planning activities.
