Be in life or career, timing is everything. Recognizing and then embracing your moment when it presents itself can change the very path of your life, professional or personal. Once you have immersed yourself into this thriving business of professional coaching, optimum time, resource and energy management is vital to your long-term success.

By definition, coaching involves supporting or guiding individuals (or a group of individuals) on their path to self-discovery – encouraging them to identify & face their issues, steering them towards and helping draw out a framework to find solutions, fixing accountability for achieving set targets – all aimed at delivering specific transformative results.

But any individual who has spent some time coaching (even if for a short while) will tell you that reality often diverges from this idealistic scenario. Instead of channeling all their energy and resources into delivering transformative results for their clients, many coaches find themselves saddled with the administrative, sales & marketing tasks of keeping their business running.

“Have those new clients’ payments come through?”

“Is there an issue with scheduling?”

“Have I double-booked?”

“Oh no, did I forget to send out reminders for session timing changes?”

“Why do we seem to be not attracting more clients?”

“Why are our volumes lower than the competition when we offer much better packages?”

Believe us, these are daily distractions that a coach can definitely do without. Even if all these additional aspects do not completely go away, there are definitely ways to keep them to a bare minimum,

Simply.Coach is one such solution – an all-in-one online coaching platform that takes care of all your other peripherals and lets you focus on your core job, which is to…simply coach!
