If you’re a coach who wants more clients, I would love to help you. And by help I mean I would love to understand who you are, what makes you excited about coaching, what you are trying to set up – and then share every bit of knowledge and experience I have to help you get there as soon as possible.
I’ve been in coaching a long time and know a lot of coaches. And despite the many books and programs out there aiming to be of assistance, there are still far too many coaches struggling.
There is a good reason for this. I have found there is simply no substitute to focused, experienced mentoring to help coaches not only learn what they need to learn, but change their mindset and behavior and thus get the results they desire.
For 20 years I have researched, experimented, observed, written, and presented on marketing and business development in the world of coaching. And I have always reserved a portion of my practice to work 1 to 1 with other coaches to help them find their quickest and most authentic path to greater success. Typically, I help them:
- Find at least one group of ideal clients that suits their background and interests where they can generate a good living.
- Understand what those clients are needing coaching for, and how coaching is a better solution to what they are using now.
- Find a few ways to connect with enough motivated potential clients, in-person and remotely, so you can raise your visibility, credibility and generate enough serious interest to supply you with a steady stream of business. (This includes helping you establish and optimize your website, social media or in-person presence.)
- Move past the predictable, doubts, fears, distractions and confidence issues to market with integrity and ease.
- Create systems for your business and marketing that are easy and dependable.
The 1 to 1 Support Difference
You can learn certain things from books, trainings and group programs, but the vast majority of coaches I know do not learn enough to change the way they feel or behave. So whatever they’ve learned doesn’t translate into a more successful business. I have worked with over 500 coaches in 1 to 1 relationships to help them gain clarity, move into action, and get reliable results in their business.
When I work with clients, I tell them they should expect great value from every single session. There are no contracts or long-commitments necessary. Frequency of calls is entirely up to you. Most clients talk to me a couple of times a month, as they have a desire to begin to generate positive income as soon a possible.
How long we work together is also up to you. Some clients only need a few calls to access some experienced support to clarify and fine tune what they are doing.
However, most clients require at least a couple of calls to get clear on their best audience, then a few more to capture enough knowledge about their audience to articulate a good value proposition, another month or two to translate that knowledge into a few marketing platforms, and a finally a few calls to set up strategies that are easy for them, and effective in generating a consistent stream of ideal clients willing to pay you what you are worth. And many clients continue to benefit from ongoing monthly calls to keep fine tuning and growing.
The Cost: I simply charge by the session. My rate is $250 for calls that usually last 30-45 minutes. I don’t coach with a stop watch, we finish when we have answered your important questions and you are clear on what is next.
The Benefit: What is it worth to you to have a business of whatever size you want, that you can enjoy, trust and count on for as long as you want to coach? How much a month would you be earning when you get there?
Are You Really Serious About Your Success?
Many coaches take their training primarily for reasons of personal growth. However, If you are serious about earning a living with your business, it always pays to get the best help you can. If you think it might be me, I would genuinely love to help you learn to build and run a successful coaching business, that suits your personality and style, and allows you to market with authenticity and integrity. Simply email me to set up a complimentary chat. I would love to know what you are trying to do, and would be happy to share a few thoughts as to some of the opportunities I see for you, and how I might be of assistance.

“I worked with Steve Mitten for 12 months from 2015-2016 as I was building my coaching business. I am certified by Georgetown University and the ICF as a coach yet Steve offered practical advice on the best ways to expand my market, focus on my ideal clients, and to articulate my unique offering. He did all of this in an optimistic, supportive, and intelligently advisory way. He helped me to focus on what my offering is and will be and he helped me to activate and energize myself when I needed resilience and discipline.”
I have over thirty years of senior HR management experience in two large corporations and am not a novice to coaching…yet I found Steve to be an ideal combination of coaching, advising, directing, teaching, and motivating talents. I am thankful to him for his partnership. If you are looking for coaching on an array of topics talk to Steve Mitten!”
