Coaching business – Holding myself back from getting started.


I am having mind drama with starting my business.

I am in the process of starting my life coaching business and are going around in circles. I want to do certification but I do not have the money at the moment to pay for it and not in a position to get a loan. My goal is to start coaching and use the money I make from coaching to pay for the certification.

I have read a lot of coaching books and listen to podcasts to get started but I don’t know how to outline a block of coaching sessions to suit the client and feel I need to be certified to know what I am doing before I start. I don’t know if the client comes to me each week with something they want to address or we have one big goal that we work towards over the period and what this all looks like. This uncertainty stops me from getting started.

It’s like a loop:

Need money for certification -> Start coaching business to make money to pay for certification -> Don’t start a business because I am unsure how to outline and run offer -> certification will help -> Need money for certification.

A thought a have is that once I know what a block of coaching sessions should look like I will be confident in putting myself out there and making offers.
I joined Scholars today to help me get through this and finally kick me into gear so I get my business off the ground and start working towards my goal of getting certified and creating a successful coaching business.

Thank you in advance for your response!
