Not taking no for an answer?

Hi Brooke!

In the spirit of the latest coaching call about going back to people who have turned you down and saying “let me make sure you understand what opportunity you’d be missing” I’m wondering how that applies to my offers to coach prospective clients.

I did a first free session to one woman recently, made an offer, let her think about it (you recommended a different course of action since, which I’ll apply next time!) and didn’t hear back.

A few days ago I sent her a note to ask how she was doing, referring to a few topics we had covered but not directly asking about the coaching.

She responded and also mentioned that her naturopath was adding a coaching component to their weekly sessions and she was seeing progress, so for now she was good.

She said she would get back to me to complete this work if needed.

I haven’t yet decided how I’m going to respond and im curious to know what you think.

Would you take that no for an answer, or would you reaffirm the value you’re offering and how it can’t possibly compare with what the naturopath is offering (though I don’t know what that involves)?

I’m trying to see the line between giving it all I’ve got and laying off when people just say no, so I don’t come off as pushy and burn a bridge that might have been crossed later.

Thank you in advance for your thoughts!
