How to Increase Your Income
A question I frequently get asked is ‘if you’re a Life Coach, how come you are helping people to make more money‘?
My answer is very simple – I am fortunate enough to be financially Secure. I went from being flat broke to a self-made Millionaire by the age of 36.
I started life in a rented council flat, not even a house, and not even owned! I left school at age 16 with no qualifications at all, didn’t go to college, Uni or any other higher education. I was worth nothing and had nothing.
I didn’t get there by luck, trust me! and I don’t tell you this to boast either, I’m not that easily pleased! I tell you this so’s to give some validity to the content on this page you’re about to read.
Help Where Sorely Needed
To me, the opening question says a whole lot more than the content in / of the question itself, to me it says people are excepting of the fact that someone can help them with their Emotional problems or Relationship problems as examples in the area of Life Coaching but could not, cannot, help them with increasing their financial worth in their Life.
I find this rather odd. To help people with 1 area of life but not another, in my book, only leaves a gaping whole and a lack of money is definitely some BIG gaping hole is it not!
Around 95% of the UK population of 65 million, are either struggling in this area or are at least not happy and desire more money in their life.
So if that means around 60 million people have an area of their Life that they are unhappy about – WHY – does the Life Coaching profession, not address it?
There are various answers of course, I think one answer is that most Coaches are not financially wealthy and as such they would rather not go there so to speak so they don’t offer it as a service.
Teaching something to someone else does not work if the teacher is also the learner!
If I may, I would also like to point out that some of the traditional financial advisors on the high street are also not financially secure in their own life.
I wish no one no disrespect here whether that be coaches or advisors, I am merely trying to point out that if someone wants to learn or be taught by another person about a particular skill or topic – then the teacher ought to be competent / successful in that topic – themselves.
This was my understanding and philosophy for all of my Life Coaching many years back when I started out.
I wanted to make Financial support and Coaching part of my range of services to the public, however since I didn’t have much of this resource early on, I had to actually go out – and create my Financial abundance from absolute scratch!
Thus I didn’t engage in the Financial Coaching context until I myself had mastered this area later on in my career.
If you are interested in being Coached on how to create financial Security and Freedom for yourself and your loved ones, than the high street advisor is an option, self-education is also another.
For many people, Money – the making of more of it – can be a very complex and overwhelming area for the majority of people but –It doesn’t have to be like that!
My approach was ‘what if it could be made simpler?’ ‘what if people could be shown the way to create additional income appear in their own lives?’
Hence the Financial Coaching Service that I personally offer. I Coach individuals who have little money and would like to have more money coming in. I do not Coach people in the mid ground so to speak who are looking for / at a financial investment of some sorts. That is not my forte.
Financial Coaching Based On Real-Life Experience!
My expertise comes from a real Life situation – not a classroom setting or a situation where I am coaching people on increasing their finances while I am still poor! nor did I inherit my wealth. I built my Security from scratch, from the bottom up, now I enjoy the Freedom it brings as well.
This is what I bring to the table for would be people looking to have more money in their Life, I have been where most people are –lost and or struggling – and now that I am way up stream, I can help others to navigate without drowning or getting hit by the rocks.
There are a lot of people out there in the world – even in the life coaching profession – who profess to having answers to problems, yet are not able to manifest and demonstrate in their own Life, the advice that they ask others to pay for! I went for a different strategy early on in that, I myself would have to become an example – of the advice that I dished out.
What Does My Financial Coaching Consist Of?
It is a very simple, 2 fold process :
I firstly help the individual to have the right conditioning on a psychological level about having more money in their life so that self-sabotage and inconsistent actions are removed.
Even before we even meet, I will have the client go through an extensive 6 part Financial plan that starts the process of dismantling the negative conditioning that person likely has within them about the concept of having more money in their Life. There are almost 10,000 words in this dossier and it separates those that are interested from those that are committed!
By the way, if you would like to receive this 6 part Financial plan to get a taster for the kind of approaches I use to break negative conditioning then just contact me and I will be happy to send you it for free.
After the client has completed this I will work with them directly to intervene and obliterate any remaining negative anchoring to the idea of having more money in their Life.
Secondly, I then help the individual to physically create the extra money in their life*, I help the person to formulate a strategy that involves vehicles / avenues that generate that additional income, whether that be a simple investment, working extra hours at their current place of work, savings plans, an additional business to their current job, getting on the property ladder, investing in start-up Businesses or whatever it is the individual wants / needs.
Together we create a bespoke plan for them. Everyone I Coach is different so every plan is unique and characteristic of their individual strengths, levels of risk, preferable means to achieving that extra income, time parameters etc… step by step over days weeks or months we create the plan, then tweak it and tinker with it until it works and is bringing in, in the practical world, very real additional revenue.
