How do you Know if you Need a Coaching Session?

Not every single person needs a coaching session. If you’re doing fine in your business and you have no questions, coaching probably isn’t necessary. Coaching sessions are for people that have hit a roadblock, and they’re just not sure what their next move is. Even if you are doing well, coaching can help you build a roadmap for your future.

During coaching sessions, you can work 1:1 with a mentor with several years of experience at dealing with the issues that are new to you. This is your chance to ask specific questions that you can’t find on Google or LinkedIn.

Mentors can help:

  • Create business plans

  • Problem solves

  • Critique methods and deliverables

  • Offer valuable insight you won’t find on your own

The bottom line? You can get much farther by working with a coach. You may be

able to do it by yourself, but isn’t it worth it to invest in yourself and your future? I didn’t work with a coach until recently, and I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner.

The tips you see in someone's newsletter or on LinkedIn are the tip of the iceberg. No one is sharing all their secrets in a free capacity. That’s where paid access to resources like coaching packages or courses.

So let’s go over what coaches can help with during private or group sessions.

Not Getting clients

I get the same question all the time in my messages: “I’m not getting clients, can you help?” And to be honest, that’s a really loaded question. Not one that I can answer in a few back-to-back messages on LinkedIn. Could I answer it in a coaching session? Sure.

In a coaching session, we could go over:

  • What platforms you use

  • Your approach

  • Your wordings

I could offer my suggestions to help improve your chances of getting noticed by that publication. I’ve helped critique pitches and letters of introductions. I go over platforms and methods that increase your chances of getting noticed over other ones.

I don’t guarantee results. It’s up to you to find your publications and implement my advice. But, I can increase your chances dramatically by offering tested, insider tips.

Feeling stuck

It’s not uncommon to hit a wall as an entrepreneur. I think it happens to most of us. You may not know what your business goals are. Or you’re just not making progress the way you hoped you would.

I can help you overcome some of these challenges in individualized sessions.

Over 40 minutes, we can chat over what you think the problems are. Then, we can work together to come up with ways around your hurdle.

Not knowing what the next step is

Business ownership is tough. The path in front of you is wide open, and you have to make strong decisions that will all have lasting impacts. It’s hard to prioritize what's most important for you and your business.

I can help create a roadmap to success. We can come up with business goals, and break them down into smaller, more attainable quarterly goals. That way, you never lose sight of what’s important.

Not sure what your niche

If you don’t know what your niche is, I can help. We can go over the many different types of deliverables and what they look like. I can give ballpark estimates for what some of the deliverables are paying.

Then, we can go over the different types of clients you can have and what your topics could be about. Based on your answers to my clarifying questions, we can work together to find your niche within writing .

LinkedIn Optimization

LinkedIn Optimization is incredibly important for any freelance writer. It helps editors find you without you having to lift a finger. Imagine that! You log onto LinkedIn and an editor is asking to work with you in your messages. Amazing. That’s what LinkedIn Optimization does. And I can help.

I can help teach you how to optimize your profile, or I can create a checklist for you to go through and make sure everything is covered. We can go over any concerns you have with your LinkedIn, including content creation. Almost all of my leads come organically from LinkedIn.

Resource Sharing

I am happy to share resources with the people I’m coaching. This may mean handouts I’ve created for previous sessions. Or, I can provide information on courses that are valuable for writers. If you’re working with me in a coaching session, you’re getting access to content I’m not making available through my free products.


Coaching is an incredibly valuable tool to help you get ahead in your writing business. If you’re looking to leave the bedside, I can help map out the steps you need to get there. If you’re already an established writer that needs a nudge in the right direction, I can help with that, too.

Invest in yourself and your future, you’re worth it. Book a coaching call today to get a leg up on the competition and secure a better tomorrow.
