How did Jodi Flynn land her first paid coaching client? Networking, networking, networking.
This can apply to any business but especially when you’re coaching in the corporate executive realm, it’s all about relationships.
Getting clients is all about who you know and being brave enough to put yourself out there.
You have to get in front of potential clients, get to know them, and let them know what you can offer.
All this season we have been chatting with experienced 6 and 7-figure coaches from different niches about how they got that very first client and what they might do differently today.
In this episode, we are continuing our series by peering into the world of corporate coaching with the Founder of Women Taking the Lead, Jodi Flynn.
For over a decade, women leaders have been hiring Jodi to develop the skills needed to thrive in Senior Leadership.
She is the host of the critically acclaimed Women Taking the Lead podcast, and an Amazon bestselling author with her book, Accomplished: How to Go from Dreaming to Doing. She is the President of the board for The Maine Women’s Conference and has been featured in Entrepreneur and Forbes Magazine.
