This is not a sales page! While many coaches feature and rely on testimonials to convince clients to sign up, I prefer a bit of a different approach. (What else is new? LOL)
Don't get me wrong, testimonials are great, but if you're like me you like to find out for yourself and reserve judgment until you do. I find testimonials really subjective (obviously) and, as such, I also find they can sometimes lead to unrealistic expectations. For example, I was once referred to a highly acclaimed intuitive counselor and I was super excited to meet her, so I booked an appointment. I had heard such raving reviews and so my expectations were on high. However, when I actually had my session, unfortunately our energies did not align. She was a very nice woman but I simply wasn't feeling it. Unfortunately, as much as others may have raved about her, my session wasn't as great as I had hoped, and I felt somewhat disappointed as a result,
So instead of believing the hype, I decided that moving forward I would always use my own intuition to decide how I felt about working with someone. And since a lot of my coaching has to do with teaching self-reliance and self-empowerment, it makes sense to follow that through here as well.
Consequently, I have decided to offer a one-time in-person (or phone) sample coaching session (to new clients only) so that we can both get a feel of what it would be like to work together. Let's be honest, not everyone is a perfect fit. As such, we both need to resonate with each other on some level. So in order to find out how we fit, I am offering this one-time sample session so that we can each get a taste of what it will be like to work with each other.
I'll be frank, I am not a sales person. In fact, sales is my least favorite part of my business. I'd rather do my taxes than try to sell anyone on anything. Instead, I'm a consciousness-raiser and an empath who deeply wants to help my clients get the most out of their lives.
Subsequently, it is vitally important to me to only work with clients who are excited about venturing on this journey with me to help them gain insights that could potentially be life-changing. It is for this reason that I give my prospective clients a 3 day grace period (once they do sign their contracts with me) to terminate their contract if they change their minds for any reason whatsoever, with no questions asked. That's because I don't want anyone to ever feel obligated or pressured to do something they don't want to do!
As much as I would like to personally help everyone, there is only one of me. I highly value your time, as well as mine, and so I feel that by asking my prospective clients to do their research, take the time to apply, and even wait if necessary for their time with me, it shows me their commitment to the process and to helping themselves make the most profound changes they seek. It takes two to tango so while I will always do my very best to help, I can only lead you to the fountain...(please forgive the horse analogy reference; I know you were thinking it).
So here's how it will work:
First, check out my website, blog, books, or any of the other information you can find out about me and what I think, believe, and do.
Next, if I resonate with you, send me an email requesting your one-time sample session.
I will then respond with a few background questions that I will ask you to answer (like a mini application) in order to see if I can genuinely help you with what you are seeking. After all, as gifted as I am (pat on back) I don't want to waste anyone's time, including my own.
If we turn out to be a fit in this initial stage, I will then send you my contract/waiver for you to look over, sign, and send back to me via email (got to keep it legal).
I will also send you a paypal invoice for a one-time session fee of $550 +HST for your 2-hour mini-intensive that you will have with me over a beverage (at a mutually agreed upon venue), or over the phone, as you prefer.
Once I receive your signed contract/waiver and payment I will then contact you to set up a day and time for us to meet in-person or talk over the phone, whichever works best.
And then that's it. After our session is over there will be no further obligation. You can choose to continue with one of my services (immediately or in the future) or you can simply walk away. We both get to decide if we're a good fit, so it's a win-win. But either way, it is always my pleasure to serve you!
