Starting the work before the business

I am saving/raising money to join The Life Coach School in March 2021. My plan is that by Fall 2021 I will be a life coach for moms who have relationship issues with their teenage daughters. But I don’t want to wait over a year to get going on this.

I am in the process of building up an Instragram following to be a base platform. I am currently learning about how to build up my account from zero followers and one of the things I learned is that I need to have meaningful content that people will be interested in. So I’ve decided to start a blog about the relationship between moms and their teenage daughters that I will put on my Instagram account and I can highlight in posts.

I won’t be taking any clients yet because I don’t think I’m ready, but my idea is that if I can build a following then it will be easier to get clients next fall.

I also feel that by doing this it may take me some place that I hadn’t even thought of. Ideas generating ideas.

So my question is – Is this idea completely off base?

I am ready to put the work in to make this happen but I’ve never done anything like this before so I’m not sure if this is completely backwards and off the rails.
