  • 028 - When Your Client Asks For One Thing, But You Sense That There Is A Bigger Conversation To Be Had

    28/11/2022 Duration: 01h09min

    If you ever wondered why I shut down my Podcast Answer Man business and rebranded myself as the Mindset Answer Man, this episode will give greater insight into my decision than I've shared previously. Recently, I hosted an "Ask Me Anything" session on the topic of "The Business of Coaching." Kate Nankivell let me know that she would be participating live and that she planned to ask the following question:  "I’ve just started a new podcast called The Shape of Kate. I’m at the beginning of my much needed weight loss and regain my fitness and health journey and I want to share this journey and so much more through this podcast. Now this represents a departure from my current business so I’m thinking about my monetization strategies. My clear intention with this podcast is to be an inspiration through sharing my journey but not a weight loss coach or fitness expert. I’ll interview those experts as I go. They rightly claim their expertise. My monetization ideas at this early stage is to bring on adv

  • 027 - Creating An Evergreen Marketing Funnel That Will Bring A Consistent Flow of Potential New Coaching Clients

    21/11/2022 Duration: 30min

    Recently, I hosted an "Ask Me Anything" session on the topic of "The Business of Coaching" and Jennifer Swanson asked the following question:  "My coaching is off the side of my desk (and I want it to stay there because I'm doing several things) but it would be nice to have a handful of steady clients, and while word of mouth has been good in the past, it's never stead. What strategies would you suggest for finding clients that are not high-pressured or sale-sy?" The advice I gave in this episode: Create an evergreen marketing funnel that is purpose built to consistently generate new potential clients who are interested in your coaching. Create a niche topic podcast with only five to ten podcast episodes that are more valuable than a $2,000 dollar course on the topic. For every episode, give away a high quality “hand-out” or “PDF Quick Guide” that relates to the content of that episode. (They will opt-into your email newsletter to receive this) Write a series of emails (at least 10 to 20) that wil

  • 026 - Struggle - How Can I Build A Thriving Business If I Can Coach On Almost Anything?

    14/11/2022 Duration: 25min

    Recently, I hosted an "Ask Me Anything" session on the topic of "The Business of Coaching" and Loubna Zarrou asked the following question:  "I have been coaching many years but one struggle is how to turn it into a business when you can coach on almost anything." The advice I gave in this episode: First, I shared one of my favorite Steven Chandler quotes about the topic of "choosing a niche" for your coaching. Next, I provided the following five pieces of advice: Determine how much money that you need to generate on a monthly basis to thrive financially from your full-time self-employed coaching business. Do the math…. Can you find 1 client to pay 100% of your monthly amount within 15 to 20 hours a week of work? Can you find 2 clients to pay 50% of your monthly amount within 15 to 20 hours a week of work? Can you find 4 clients to pay 25% of your monthly amount within 15 to 20 hours a week of work? Can you find 10 clients to pay 10% of your monthly amount within 15 to 20 h

  • 025 - Nine Tips To Secure High Ticket Coaching Clients From Your Podcasting Efforts

    08/11/2022 Duration: 42min

    Recently, I hosted an "Ask Me Anything" session on the topic of "The Business of Coaching" and Chris Pinckley asked the following question:  How can a seasoned or veteran coach, in other words someone who already knows the coaching industry, turn their podcast into a lead generation tool effectively? Talk consistently about the exact topics that your current coaching clients are bringing to their sessions. (No Specifics of the client Included of course) Use the precise language that they use to describe their pain, problem, struggle, obstacle, etc. Host “Ask Me Anything” sessions like this to offer a “public example” of the type of coaching you do and include some examples of those conversations in your podcast. Create “Custom CTA’s” For Every Episode. Prioritize getting people to your mailing list to nurture the relationship. Add different price point offerings for your value ladder of products and services. Invite your best clients who have experienced the most transformation to tell their s

  • 024 - Resolving An Issue With Getting 2nd Calls Booked

    04/11/2022 Duration: 47min

    My great friend, Deacon Bradley, is a member of my Next Level Mastermind and has been using the Prosperous Coach Method to create new clients. Over the past several months, Deacon has experienced a few scenarios where he has had a hard time with follow-ups after the first complimentary coaching session, specifically getting his potential clients to book their second complimentary session. This is NOT an issue where the coaching is not powerful enough. On the contrary, Deacon's concern, initially, was that the first session may be far too powerful and that the potential client may have four to six months worth of insights to implement after the first call. Yet, in a recent conversation via one of LinkedIn Live Audio events, we uncovered a few missing components within the Connect, Invite and the first session of the Create phase of the Prosperous Coach Process. No doubt, you will find a tremendous amount of value in this episode. Links Mentioned at the end of the episode TrainWithCliff.com Free

Here's the interesting part - as much as Cliff can help you with the tactical/practical (e.g. the

  • 022 - Avoiding The Advice Monster

    28/05/2022 Duration: 32min

    Avoiding The Advice Monster... I recently had a gentleman enter one of my Clubhouse rooms and he said.... "I'm a little concerned right now about where to go in life.  I'm curious about outsourcing ideas beyond people who know me well and I wanted to see if I could get some advice from a coach and professional such as yourself." In this episode, you get to hear our entire conversation.  This client got all the advice and answers to the questions that he had been looking for, but if you listen closely, you'll notice that I never once gave him any advice other than a book recommendation that I thought might be valuable for him.

  • 020 - How Do I Decide How Much Content To Give For Free So That Potential Clients Will Still Hire Me?

    12/12/2021 Duration: 04min

    Creating free content is an amazing way to demonstrate the amount of insight and value that you could provide to potential clients. I'm often asked the question....

  • 019 - The Most Frequently Asked Questions About Mastermind Groups

    05/11/2021 Duration: 01h02min

    I recently launched a brand new podcast called "Upgrade Your Peer Group - The Power of Mastermind Groups." Knowing that this new podcast would be of great interest to those who are looking to build a profitable coaching career, I decided to share a recent episode of this new podcast here in the Cliff's Notes on Profitable Coaching podcast. In this episode, I share the most common questions I get related to mastermind groups. For each question, I share an answer off the top of my head, with what comes to my mind today, as my answers to many of these questions have evolved as I have continued to experience the Mastermind Principle in my own personal and profession journey through life. Question 1 - What Is A Mastermind Group?  Question 2 - What Are Some of The Benefits of A Mastermind Group? Question 3 - Should I find a group to join or just start my own?  Question 4 - Where Can I Find A Mastermind Group?  Question 5 - How many people should be in a mastermind group?  Question 6 - How D

  • 018 - Helping Clients Get To The Root Cause of Their Issue

    31/08/2021 Duration: 01h11min

    In this episode, I share a coaching conversation that I recently had with Abd Aref via the Free The Dream Clubhouse Community. Here is the question that was posed… Whenever I make a decision, I'd always set out the pros and cons. And then I would predict the outcome. I will also communicate to seek some advice from people who have already made decisions similar to mine. But the thing is that I ALWAYS GET STUCK in this stage where I always think about WHAT IF… , WHAT IF… , WHAT IF… , WHAT IF… It leaves me emotionally drawn. I cannot sleep. I cannot do ANYTHING! I would always just have these… (thoughts?)... It could be negative, it could be positive…. But it makes me take long periods to make a decision. And I end up not making the right decision. So what's your take on that? In the past, I may have focused the majority of our conversation on tips, tools and techniques on how to make quick decisions that will get you further, faster.  However, as a coach, I like to get to the root of the issue when

  • 017 - We Help Our Clients Go From Trying Harder to Trying Smarter

    24/08/2021 Duration: 30min

    In this episode, I share an amazing story that I discovered within a book titled "PSYCH-K… The Missing Piece/Peace In Your Life" by author Robert Williams. This was originally shared in The Cliff Ravenscraft Show which is my main podcast. It occurred to me that this would be an incredible insight into what it is that we do, as coaches, for our clients. I hope you enjoy! If you have any questions about The Prosperous Coach Method for Creating Clients, please reach out to me.    

  • 016 - The Potential Danger of Coaching At Capacity And How To Avoid It

    21/08/2021 Duration: 30min

    In this episode I answer a series of questions from Candace who asked... What do I do if I am "At Capacity" for the number of clients that I want to work with?   Do I continue to do the Prosperous Coach Method? Do I tell them up front that I'm at capacity and that I have a waiting list?  What about the issue of them losing fervor for wanting to work with me before I have an open spot for them?" In my response to these questions I covered the topics The "Half-Life of Enthusiasm"  The danger of coaching "At Capacity" The fact that you are "At Capacity" is a symptom of an issue. That issue being that your potential clients see far more value in what you have to offer them than you do. (aka... You're Not Charging Enough!) I briefly mentioned The Art of The Proposal video by Rich Litvin The DOUBLE YOUR RATES article by Peter Shallard If you are enjoying this podcast, make sure that you check out my main podcast The Cliff Ravenscraft Show in your favorite podcast directory.

  • 015 - Two Important Steps For Becoming A Paid Coach

    02/04/2021 Duration: 52min

    I recently had a conversation with someone who has been "struggling" to create paid coaching business for the past four years. She has created multiple websites, social media profiles, a podcast and has a long list of other things that she feels that she needs to do before she can begin creating paid products and services as a coach. Imagine... Struggling for four years to get a coaching business started and still having no clarity about what paid products or services you are going to offer.

  • 013 - Defining Our Client's Problems In Solvable Terms

    23/03/2021 Duration: 56min

    In this episode, I share a coaching conversation that I had via Clubhouse with Chika Bullock. Chika has an inspirational story of how she moved from Japan to New York City 15 years ago and she shared with me her additional inspirational story of her recent journey towards becoming a certified life coach over the past two years. She came to me requesting help to overcome her fear, frustration and overwhelm about all the things that stand between her and the completion of her coaching certification course at the end of this year. While there are a number of valuable lessons that can be pulled out of this conversation, the main point that I would suggest that you pay attention to is the concept of understanding as much as is possible about what someone wants, what seems to be standing in the way of them getting what they want and then simply present that information back to them by “defining their problem in solvable terms.” In less than forty minutes, I was able to recognize what Chika desired, what resources s
