Thinking... If I build it, "They" will come...

About 10 years ago I attempted to start a life coaching business, after all... I had been doing it for friends for years, and had become a Certified Hypnotherapist as well.
I got business cards, and started handing them out locally. I had no idea of what to charge for services, or how to network in a small town that I had few contacts in.
I did not offer workshops or seminars thinking that joining Toastmasters would be enough, and I did not focus on what I wanted, as working took up most of my time.
I am re-approaching coaching now with the missing links, as well as having a personal coach to help me develop my own plan that will work for me. So, here we go again, wiser and ready!
