Once you have rated each area, the Wheel of Life shows you which areas of your life are out of balance.
What do I need from myself and my environment in order to improve the areas of my Wheel of Life? Life Coaching is a profession that is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy, or counseling.
Life Coaching is a designed alliance between coach and client where the coaching relationship continually gives all the power back to you, the client.
We help you connect your head and your heart in a way that transforms your passion for your dreams into action for your life.

The coaching industry is an interesting industry and depending on who you talk to, there are some interesting and different perspectives you that might surprise you. Long term dedication: Most life and business coaches indicate that it takes quite a long time to build up a client list that’s reliable enough to generate a full income for them.
Some coach training companies state on their websites that paid clients are guaranteed after their training and that life coaching is a highly paid profession, but it clearly isn’t.
In terms of demand for the services of a life coach, Google suggests there is actually a decrease in the demand for life coaching services as indicated in the graph below that shows a slight downward trend since 2004.
So the fact that thousands of new life coaches have set up businesses with the online demand remaining static, which is pretty amazing considering how online users have grown from 745 million in 2004 to over 2.1 billion in 2011. No Governing body for coaching: The coaching industry has no governing body to look out for the client, because there is no regulation. The International Coaching Federation is a sort of self-appointed body that tries to bring some standards and structure to the industry, but primarily in the U.S. Harvard Business Review survey: The Harvard Business Review in 2009 conducted a survey of 140 leading coaches and got 5 experts to comment on the findings. Ten years ago, life coaching was all about helping to fix toxic behaviour but today it is more about developing the capabilities of high-potential performers. Survey results show that the industry is fraught with conflicts of interest, blurry lines between what is the province of coaches and what should be left to mental health professionals, and a lack of mechanisms for monitoring the effectiveness of coaching. Life Coaching Myth: some, but certainly not all coaches are able to help you reach your goals. The purpose of this article is to bring to light what many business people don’t know – MOST life coaches and business coaches are worse off and less capable than the people who are hiring them!

To set up the sections of your wheel, name the aspects of your business that deserve consistent attention. Connect one-to-one or one-to-many with individuals in your target audience, and with spheres of influence.
Be a bold and transparent promoter of your programs, by delivering a valuable taste of the transformation you provide your target audience in lively experiences. Set up enrolling conversations and moments during your events that funnel ideal clients into your programs.
Deliberately reach out for new knowledge and skills when needed, and then fully apply what you’ve learned as soon as possible. Create and maintain easy systems, savvy teams, and powerful partners, as the bones that support your whole enterprise and you.
Most of us put most of our time into two or three areas because we favor our strengths, or what’s easiest right now. The idea isn’t to give your max to every section of the wheel until you drop from exhaustion. 4 Ways to Make your Teleseminars Impactful and Memorable – by Kim Clausennext post >Is it Time for You to Build a Team? It is good to combine this with planning my priorities until September, which is one of my important tasks for tomorrow. Hi Rhonda, just wondering how does one let clients know that the coach is going out of business?  Thanks! The coaching process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in the client’s personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be. We believe that you know the answers to every question or challenge you may have in your life, even if those answers appear to be obscured, concealed or hidden inside. We work with people in corporate, small business owners to entrepreneurs, sport and entertainment professionals across the globe. It’s assumed that coaches are supposed to be successful if they are to make (you) their clients successful, but that isn’t always the case.
Some of them feel that having a main career at which they are successful will help lend some credibility to their claim of being a good life coach, while others say it only takes the focus away from the main goal of building up one’s practice.
An International Coach Federation (ICF) survey conducted in 2003 found that 70% of coaches earned less than $50,000 annually and 37% less than $10,000.
One coach claims that being on the front page of Google brings in 3 or 4 inquiries irregularly and 50% of those inquiries are either time wasters or people who need therapy as opposed to coaching. Mathematically, it shows a significant decrease in demand for life coaching services rather than growth. The Australian effort has been underway for more than four years, but presents a massive challenge to coaches who have paid little attention to the emerging definition of coaching—and the “benchmarks” that clients may quickly adopt as the standard.
The commentators all had conflicting views as to where the field is heading and ought to be heading; this reflected the contradictions that came to light among the respondents.
This in itself has created more fuzziness around issues such as how life coaches define the scope of their work, how they measure and report on progress and the credentials a company should use to select a coach.
The bottom line is that coaching continues to grow but the fundamentals of the industry are still in flux. One of the main issues is that anyone can call themselves a professional coach, life coach, personal coach, etc. You might have used this classic coaching tool with your clients, but have you ever thought of creating one for your business?

But if the rest of the wheel is always neglected, it will slow you down like a car with a flat tire, whether you have an established business or you’re just getting started.
The idea is to occasionally take a step back and see what’s getting all the juice, then make adjustments.
For example, my ideal biz week consists of 6 hours on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and 4 hours on Thursday.
I incorporate it all into my daily habits and allow it to influence what I create in my business.
By reading your article I realized that I have to specify my target group and the benefit they get from me.
Your business matures and the rewards are significant — allies coming out of the woodwork to help promote you, more referrals, commanding higher fees. While some coaches do well, the ICF study indicated that only 10% of them earned $100,000 and those were coaches to America’s Fortune 500. A governing and regulating body does not exist for Life coaching as it does for social workers and psychologists. Coaching is not regulated and many ‘coaches’ have no idea what coaching really is because they haven’t been trained or haven’t been coached by a professionally trained and credentialed coach. What desperately needs attention and what can ride for a while on the energy you’ve already given it? When I discover a new tool like Google+, learning expands for a few weeks as I incorporate new habits. Keep that up every day and you’ll be amazed how fast you progress and your business grows. And you become known for your specialty so people want to interview you, have you speak to their groups etc. This study also showed that close to 100% of the survey respondents were primarily engaged in one-on-one coaching rather than group sessions.
Give yourself a target launch date and get your product to market quickly rather than perfectly.
If I focus my schedule and energy in that 22 hours, I can get massive stuff done and make a big impact that translates to increased revenue and great relationships. Or, if I purchase a new system like Infusionsoft, infrastructure and team management takes more time that month.
I also created an excel sheet with these business aspects and what is included in each of it, and I am working on the time I allocate to each element of the sections.
Whilst these figures are dated, they provide a clear snapshot of the coaching industry revealing that in the coaching world, a minority of individuals enjoy the lion’s share of earnings. Some people read a book or watch a TV program and decide “I’m a coach!” as a result the quality of coaches vary dramatically. But aiming to consistently impact all sections of the wheel keeps it round and moving my business forward s-m-o-o-t-h-l-y.
