How To Create More Time In Your Business #109

Today the team sits down to chat about how you can go about creating more time in your business. The Episode: How To Create More Time In Your Business In many forms of freelance and online work, schedules and your time can become a messy concept to deal with. How do you make sure that you are delivering great value to your clients while also avoiding being continually swamped and overcrowding your planner? Listening in today, you will hear a few different strategies and simple methods for staying on top of your time, and how structure and planning can actually lead to more freedom, rather than restraining you! In This Episode The question from the academy that prompted today's discussion [0:16:00] Figuring out what is truly necessary for your clients [0:18:12] Taking note of how you actually spend your time in order to optimize [0:22:41] Setting boundaries and designing your ideal week [0:25:52] The importance of structure to any business or project [0:33:22] “The absolute best way to lift people up is to create unbelievably high standards for them and then give them the opportunity to rise up.” — Jonathan Goodman Taking the Lead with Your Schedule There is usually a way that you can trim the fat from your commitments, and this means going through and taking note of what is absolutely essential to the service you are delivering. Clients usually do not need long weekly phone call check-ins for instance, so anything that falls into that category can be cut from your diary. Communication is also key, as when you are spending time on someone, making sure they know when you need to finish and respecting those deadlines can help a lot. Set Healthy Boundaries We recommend gaining some self-awareness around how you actually spend your hours. Using a notebook and jotting down how your days pan out can be quite illuminating in this regard! When we leave things unaddressed, tasks tend to bleed into other times of the day such as the evenings or social time, so try setting out boundaries for yourself. You can even design your dream week, and see what that looks like and if you can achieve it.  Freedom Within Structure The paradox of implementing more structure in your days is that it can actually lead to more freedom! This structure will also grow and change along with your situation, and there will always be tradeoffs that you will have to make. But we recommend putting in place as many benchmarks as possible, these will impact your approach to work and time and will most likely increase your energy for different parts of your day!

The Difference Between Building An In-Person and Online Coaching Business #108

Today we get into the differences of an online coaching business, compared with the in-person model. The Episode: The Difference Between Building An In-Person and Online Coaching Business As more trainers catch onto the benefits of working online, marketing and business strategies need to reflect these trends. One of the main arguments we make here on the OTA show is that online coaching is not the same as an in-person service, and so there are clear ways in which your methods need to evolve if you are wanting to make this switch. In this episode, we focus on a few elements that are vital to a successfully run online training business and dispel some myths and misconceptions around niching down and your actual selling points.  In This Episode What most people sell when doing in-person training [0:15:29] The challenges of switching from in-person to online [0:20:10] Why narrowing down your target market is not so dangerous [0:25:01] Location bias when working as an in-person trainer [0:28:32] How marketing changes when you move online [0:32:51] Taking your business cues from your own life [0:36:10] “What you can do for somebody in person is much harder to do for them online, it's harder to replicate.” — Jonathan Goodman What In-Person Coaches Offer In-person training is predominantly about making someone feel good while they are working out with you. However, whether in-person or online, you should always be selling the transformation that is possible through your program. The problem is that a lot of people do not do this! Although different customers might look for different things, you need to promote the real value that you offer and double down on that. Online training allows us to focus more on those results as there is less focus on the actual sessions. Switching to an Online Model There are a number of challenges that coaches can encounter when making the switch to an online business. Pricing is a big part of making the change, and your mentality towards your prices and value will determine how things work out for you. We urge you to be very conscious of your mindset around this time and try to see if you can catch and curb any limiting thoughts that might be present. Until you do this you will be stuck within those limitations. Narrowing Down Your Market is a Positive Step Trying to serve and help everyone is a fallacy, and will not actually enable greater impact or reach. When you narrow down your lane to something more defined, you usually make it possible to connect with more people, rather than exclude possible clients. Your whole business will evolve over time, so there is no need to overcomplicate things, especially in the beginning. The beauty of online training is that it allows you to drill down on what you really offer, and remove noise and hype from what attracts clients to your business.

How To Have More Than One Target Market #107

Today on the show the focus is how to expand your online coaching business into other target markets. The Episode: How To Have More Than One Target Market One of our main messages for students is to identify and focus on a single target market or defined client avatar. But this does not mean that you can never branch out and serve other markets and a broader range of people. This episode is all about how and when you can do this and is also a reiteration of keeping things simple in the beginning. Ultimately you want your online coaching business to grow and change according to your needs and skills, so listening to feedback and staying authentically yourself should be the guiding principles of whatever choices you make.  In This Episode Expanding a target market after the initial phase [0:21:34] Tricky transitions into new areas [0:24:43] Allowing space for organic growth and reinvention [0:29:12] Making appropriate shifts that suit you and your lifestyle [0:30:53] Sharing the unique and quirky parts of yourself [0:34:42] “When you are starting, you need a competitive advantage, you need something that is going to give people a reason to take a shot on you.” — Jonathan Goodman The First Steps As we often say, keep it simple when you are starting out, and this means focusing on one target market! Once you have an established customer base in a market, you can begin to consider expanding it, or approaching other demographics. This is not a necessity, and it is completely acceptable to stay in your lane and never leave, it is up to you! What you definitely do not want to do is mess things up by trying to juggle more than you can handle. The Problem with Branching Out It can be a real challenge to transition from an in-person practice to something strictly online, and this is mostly because becoming accustomed to one way of doing things can make it hard to recognize its flaws and abandon it. The reality is that in-person training is just not a good business model anymore and does not serve any of the people involved as well as it should. You can train whoever you want to but try and free yourself from the limitations of your past experiences. Staying Flexible and Open-Minded In the early stages of a coaching business, you will not know what it will become. So do not focus on executing a big vision initially, you want to leave space for trying new things and for exploration and reinvention. You can really adapt your business to your life, and we highly recommend staying genuine and quirky because that is what people will connect with! As always, real-time feedback is invaluable, so take notice of what people relate to and what they are saying. Already at $1,000/month online and want to scale?

What We Wish We Would Have Known #106

Our panel sit down to talk about what they wish they had known when starting out in the online training space.  The Episode: What We Wish We Would Have Known No matter where you start out with your training business, things will change and grow over time. This means that you should not get hung up on what you know and don't know at this point. We all begin this journey with a lot to learn, and this process will mirror the type of business you end up building, so allow that to happen in its own time and enjoy the developments as they happen. Instead of focussing on having it all figured out, rather pour your energy into taking action and learning, this is a much better pathway to lasting success, and with this attitude, you can build a much more genuine and sustainable business. In This Episode Wasting time on choosing a name for your business [0:11:16] The pressure of feeling like you have to have it all figured out [0:12:19] It's fine to be a little clueless in the beginning! [0:16:51] Avoiding procrastination and the benefits of urgency [0:23:49] Taking action will lead to results of some kind [0:26:29] Potential damage done by an overactive ego [0:28:29] Learning as you go and building slowly towards success [0:35:17] “I knew nothing when I started. I literally started a blog and did not know what the word 'blog' meant.” — Jonathan Goodman Figuring Things Out As You Go It is quite easy to get preoccupied with small things in the beginning, like fretting over the exact name you choose for your business. There is also a looming pressure that we often experience about feeling like we have to know everything, but we are here to tell you that it is okay to learn as you go! Don't beat yourself up about your blindspots. You can use the process of trying things out to figure out what you like and where you fit in. What you want to focus on is realizing how you can create an impact! Avoiding Stagnation and Overthinking When starting out, we all know very little and that is fine because you will learn as you go. In fact, having the space to be inventive and creative is a real benefit. When you know more, you can actually get into a space of overthinking and finding reasons not to do something, whereas early on, when you are more fresh to the space, this is not an issue. We have seen experienced coaches trick themselves into thinking they are moving forward, when they are stuck in a comfortable place, not making any progress. Evolving at a Natural Pace As we often say, taking action will lead to progress! Stagnation and indecision will not serve you and your business, so you need to allow space for evolution through the time you spend on your business. Having a sense of urgency, or some sort of impetus that means you need to succeed, can be a real gift, so do not shy away from making things count! The last thing to avoid is getting too tied up in the ego, as it can result in us being both overconfident and insecure, all leading to less action! Already at $1,000/month online and want to scale?

How To Successfully Fail #105

Today the team looks at how to approach the inevitable failures and hurdles that coaches encounter, in order to set yourself up for long-term success.   The Episode: How To Successfully Fail Failure and disappointment are part of life and part of business. Here at the OTA we often encounter students and coaches expressing feelings of failure and inadequacy based on certain events. This is to be expected and in some ways can be out of our control. What you do have control over, however, is how you address these situations and bounce back from them. Challenges have a way of weeding out those who are not up for them, so who do you want to be with your online training business? In This Episode Feelings of failure that are common to aspiring coaches [0:13:13] The time and failure that are inherent to starting a business [0:17:00] Sticking with it and collecting feedback to reap the rewards [0:20:13] Using your strengths as a way to overcome hurdles [0:23:57] The importance of this kind of resilience [0:29:49] “Just because we fail, doesn't mean we are a failure. That can help us move forward.” — Amber Reynolds A Better Approach to Failure At certain points in your journey, you will fail in some way or another, and you have to expect this. If you can incorporate this into a stronger mindset around failure, it will take the sting out of losses. We are not defined by our failures but rather by how we respond to them! Most things will not come out perfectly or occur in a perfect setting, so see if you can switch your perspective on these failures, to learning experiences. Responding and Improving By sticking things out, you can improve the ratio of success to failures, hopefully learning along the way. It is fine to be disappointed when things do not work out, but it is all about your reaction to these scenarios. If you let a failure lead to giving up, then you will truly never succeed. We believe the key to keeping going is to gather feedback, and if you can collect and accept this in the right way it will give you more clarity and the fuel for improvement. How to Stay Committed  It is important to have a progressive outlook, searching for ways around the inevitable obstacles. Think about your strengths and goals, and build strategies that can get you through the more difficult times. The process of encountering challenges will separate the truly committed from those who are not cut out for it, so you can decide which camp you fall into. Focussing on the day-to-day processes, and the joy that is available in those, instead of the variable results, can also help to build a stronger mentality and a more resilient attitude.

How To Price Online Training #104

The OTA panel of experts talk about getting past the tricky hurdles of pricing your online training packages. The Episode: How To Price Online Training When thinking about pricing for your online training business there are a few very important things to consider and ways to make this somewhat difficult process a little easier. First of all, there are big differences between a badly planned, cheap package, crammed with unnecessary filler features, and something more high-end that offers and delivers the kind of value that clients actually want. The other important part of this conversation revolves around the process of scaling your pricing model in a secure way, in order to build the right kind of foundation to move upwards. In the end, you have to be the one that shows clients what you have to offer and the value of that, so tune in to hear more! In This Episode Confusion, misunderstanding, and misinformation around pricing [0:09:05] The cheap pricing model versus the high end-model [0:18:20] Selling the benefits and transformation instead of features [0:21:58] The value of collecting client testimonies and feedback [0:28:54] Mapping out your plan, the time involved, and then the price [0:30:46] Understanding where you are in your pricing journey [0:38:37] “What will your client become as a result of doing the program? That's what matters.” — Jonathan Goodman The Hurdles of Pricing Your Package Pricing can be a very confusing subject at times and has only been muddied by the work of marketers. If we look at the two ends of the spectrum, with the very high-end packages on one side, and the more underpriced and entry-level stuff on the other, we can begin to see where the problem lies. As we often say, we need to be selling benefits instead of features. You want to drill down on the emotional elements of what you provide. And this comes back to good communication with your clients! Giving Clients What They Need Promising extra features can actually drive clients away if they are not services that they want! It is also important to remember that clients often do not know what they want, and it is up to you to show that to them. Early steps in this process as a trainer include collecting feedback and testimonials to start to gauge where your real value lies. Once you have this figured out you can begin to work out the monetary value of that and create packages based on what you need for a viable business. Price Adjustments and Increases Once you have an initial pricing scheme laid out and have sold a few packages, you can begin to bump up the price accordingly, but wait until you have sold successfully at the lower level before doing this! This is the systematic way to increase your income until you are at the level you believe you are truly worth. Conversations with clients, again, form an important piece of this, so get good at asking them questions and collecting their responses. Already at $1,000/month online and want to scale?

The Importance of Collaboration #103

This episode sees the panel look at how collaboration can help you in addition to others you work with. The Episode: The Importance of Collaboration There is a certain narrative in the online world around the scarcity of business and the need to look after oneself at the expense of others. We are here to tell you just how false this is and how reaching out, collaborating, and helping others can be one of the best things you can do for your business and its success. With the never-ending pool of potential clients and the multitude of other professionals doing great work, why not link in to what is happening and join the party? In This Episode Finding the right people to connect and work with [0:15:05] Providing value to others and offering help where possible [0:20:42] The reality around the size of your potential market [0:25:28] A rising tide and the benefits of sharing ideas [0:28:02] Actionable steps for kickstarting collaboration [0:32:15] Reaching and out complimenting good work [0:38:41] “Ten times out of ten, if you are able to communicate with peers in your industry you're going to get opportunities that you don't have otherwise.” — Ren Jones Building a Network of Relationships A good first step in collaboration is to find people who produce content that you like. There are too many clients out there for you to work with by yourself, but you can serve more people by connecting and sharing ideas with other trainers. Through a simple practice of reaching out, you can easily build meaningful relationships over time, and these connections will push your boundaries and expand your opportunities.  Generosity and Its Benefits There is a lot to be said about how far you can get through serving and offering help to others. A generous attitude is always possible, so when you find your people it can be very easy to create a nurturing and supportive environment. We also recommend continuously thinking about how you can further extend these branches and broaden your horizons even more. So don't be afraid to reach out to those people you have identified that you like and respect. Celebrating Others and Getting in on the Action If you want a booming business, you want to be close to the action, and where the people in your field are located. This means getting involved in groups, networks, and events. By pooling ideas with others you also improve your chances and output, and there are loads of ways to do this in real life and on social media. Don't forget to celebrate your colleagues, tell someone they are awesome today! Already at $1,000/month online and want to scale?

Value is Not Measured in Effort #102

Today the discussion focuses on the misconception that the value you offer through your service is equal to the effort you exert while providing it. The Episode: Value is Not Measured in Effort Sometimes we can begin to think that in order to truly provide value to clients we have to put in the most effort possible. Here at the OTA we believe this is fundamentally untrue, and that almost always, the best possible outcome is for things to just work. That means that less is often more, and the true measure of your expertise commonly lies in how simple and easy you are able to make things for the people you work with. This inner dialogue that we have with ourselves about our ability to help and provide value can be harmful and so we are here to remind you of what your clients are actually coming to you for! In This Episode The OTA community question that sparked today's discussion [0:16:37] Glorification of 'difficult' and why it's okay to not have a problem [0:19:26] Valuing your own work and expertise first [0:26:09] Working less for higher returns [0:30:02] Examining your own feelings about your worth [0:33:39] “Your job is to give a client what they need, when they need it. It is to optimize for the client.” — Jonathan Goodman Giving Clients the Right Amount Simply put, online training involves more upfront effort, and less as time passes. Coaches and clients can make assumptions about the value that is on offer, but on examination, it is clear that value is not directly correlated effort. If you imagine things from your client's perspective, there is a point where giving them more, can make your service worse. You do not have to add on extra unnecessary challenges and components to their plan! Shifting Perceptions of Expertise The online world often leads us to too much emphasis on difficulty, but it is also completely fine to not have a problem. Although part of the modern, social media-influenced psychology, this is a long-standing human tendency, where if something appears easy or quick, we possibly value it less. When paying for services, it is useful to remember that you are not only paying for the actual labor or advice, but also the expertise that has been acquired over time in order to carry out the work.  Working Less for Better Results The common experience of imposter syndrome also plays into this, and when we feel unsure of ourselves we can often feel as if we need to do more. But true expertise is being able to do things more successfully with less effort! We see that this issue is mostly about our own feelings and that if we remain focused on client outcomes and feedback, we can allay many of these doubts.

Online Training Should Be Fun #101

The panel breaks down how you can make your coaching business a little more fun, and how this can benefit you and your clients on multiple levels! The Episode: Online Training Should Be Fun Any business will have challenges and entrepreneurship is not a walk in the park. When you can bring some joy and fun into your work, whether it is the process of answering emails or the time you spend with clients, you can alleviate and mitigate much of the fatigue and stress that is to be expected. This can mean making things more in alignment with your unique personality, learning ways to lighten the mood with clients that are struggling, or just leaning into your expertise in order to feel more relaxed. Whichever ways suit you, we highly recommend making fun a priority for yourself and your clients.  In This Episode Injecting some joy into the stresses of online coaching [0:15:33] Creating an outlet to boost your energy and productivity [0:21:32] Insisting on enjoyment in your life and business [0:24:49] Reframing difficult client conversations [0:30:00] Bringing humor into your content and lightening the mood [0:34:01] Execution is everything [0:39:03] Enjoying the journey of building a business [0:42:17] “Having the ability to interject humor when you're communicating with a client, wherever you can, is really a great way to better enjoy what you do.” — Ren Jones The Difference that Fun Can Make Adding some levity to your work can make a big difference and make the tough times much more tolerable. Most of us know that entrepreneurship can sometimes be a lonely and tricky road to walk, so adding in some adjacent outlets and elements to your workflow can boost your energy and excitement. Remember, fun is physical and allowing space for that type of energy in your coaching can impact the results of your clients too, which should be your priority. Professionalism and fun are not mutually exclusive, you want to love the process of building a successful business! Business Does not Have to Be So Serious There is no reason to suffer through your work, because running things as a coach can be such a creative pursuit. The idea of gamification has grown in the popular imagination in recent times, and this method for bringing the fun back into potentially arduous parts of work can be really powerful. This entails knowing yourself and what gets you going and how you can inject your personality into your work. All of these little strategies will be appreciated by those you work with, and have lasting effects on your success. The Relationship Between Humor and Confidence Another important thing to keep in mind is that your content does not have to be completely serious. Sometimes we get confused about this, but in actual fact, usually, more expertise and confidence lead to more fun-filled content. When we present materials we have created, we should be free and easy with it, that is a good sign of the level to which you are in control of what you know. When you know your message well, you are free to adapt it and play with it, so go out and do something fun and remember, execution is everything! Already at $1,000/month online and want to scale?

How To Be Consistent #100

In this episode, the team break down the importance of consistency, and how to bring more of it into your online training business. The Episode: How To Be Consistent This episode is all about how to experience success that can be relied upon in the future, and refocussing your vision away from quick wins. There is a strong relationship between simplicity and consistency, especially in the beginning, so we recommend avoiding aiming for extremes, and unrealistic goals. What you really want to do is make it possible to keep doing what you are doing! The first step in laying the foundations is staying consistent, and then using the resultant success to build. In This Episode  The superpower of consistency [0:13:10] Focusing on the work instead of the results [0:19:41] Creating a business that allows you to succeed [0:25:22] The majority of people give up at some point [0:27:01] Setting and then hitting the right goals [0:32:25] “You've got to take pleasure in the work, not necessarily in the results of the work. Because the results are going to come as a result of doing the work consistently, relentlessly, while ignoring the day to day highs that happen.” — Jonathan Goodman The Advantage of Consistency It pays to remember that consistency is actually a superpower for whatever business or project you might be working on. It is the thing that will take you to the next level, and it does not even require any talent! If you really want to separate yourself from your peers or competition, work consistently. The other thing that will happen when you work on the same things over an extended period is that you will slowly become really good at them, and can experience that success that takes time to accumulate. Work Over Results Struggling with the day-to-day work of a business after the excitement of starting out forces many business owners to give up or drop the ball. It can get boring having to put in that time so tirelessly, so you have to find a way to stick with it through these valleys. Appreciating small wins and the people around you are two good examples of how to do this and will help you stay on track with your plans. This plan also needs to help you get away from the feeling that you are a slave to your business, and prepare you for the hiccups that are to be expected. Simplicity and Consistency You need to be able to match what is realistic, with what you set out to do. Find a way to set realistic daily goals that can facilitate success over an extended period. The fact is that so many people give up at some point before they really reap the rewards of the early work they do. If you can just show up every day and do that realistic amount, this can be so different for you! Some days will just be about surviving, and that's okay, because if you can survive those days, some days will be about big wins! Already at $1,000/month online and want to scale?
