“Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, ‘It might have been.”
– John Greenleaf Whittier
I have been so busy marketing my new program, that I totally forget to blog about it!
Since this is my blog and not a newsletter or sales page per se, I am going to go with a more personalized and nakedly honest approach.
I became a health coach because I wanted to help other women heal their broken food relationships and weight issues, just as my coach helped me.
So I trained, and I started my health coaching business in 2006. For ten years, I have been doing this same thing. I have gained a tremendous amount of experience. My coaching skills have improved ten-fold. I have touched the lives of hundreds of people, through my blog, through workshops, through cooking classes, and through one-on-one clients. It is my passion and I feel very fortunate to be able to pursue it.
For the most part, it is rewarding and inspiring. But what people don’t realize is the sheer amount of marketing I have to do to get clients. It’s a business, after all. And I gotta tell you, times like right now, when I am in the middle of a program launch, I feel simply awful.
I spend so much time year-round, creating all this free content. I try so hard to really give so much value here, in the other publications I write for, and in the free Facebook group. But when it comes time to actually ASK people to step up, hire me, and enroll in my programs… well, if I didn’t already have issues with anxiety, this would have surely pushed me there! And if I didn’t have a great support network, (thank you, you know who you are), I would just crawl into a dark, shadowy hole and hide.
So as I was sitting here at my desk tonight, feeling like “ugh, I literally cannot write a single word more to promote this program”, I got the following text:
That’s it. There isn’t really anything more to say. All the words, all the copy, all the cajoling… the ONLY purpose for any of it, is so that people like that dear woman right there can find me, and hire me, and change the course of their entire lives. Amen.
My 10-week online program starts next Sunday. It looks like this:
You can read all about it HERE.
You can read my answers to the most common objections and excuses I have received HERE.
If you have any questions for me, Emily@TriumphWellness.com
If you want your own success story, sign up.
If you are ready to make some changes, enroll.
If my words, words, words, make a difference for you, act.
I can write until I am blue, but it all depends on you, dear reader, to perform the alchemy that lifts these words off the screen and into the gold of prayers answered and dreams fulfilled.
