How We Built This: A Special Coach Pony Community Episode

So far this season, we’ve talked to big name coaches about how they built wildly successful programs, conferences, and podcasts in their businesses.

But it’s not just the big name coaches that are doing really interesting work.

Coaches all over the world, in businesses big and small and new and old, are building cool and life-changing things for their clients and their businesses every single day.

And in this episode, I want to highlight their stories.

So we invited our amazing community of coaches to tell us how you built something successful in your business and to share your wisdom with us. 

And wow, you guys responded.

So today, it’s time to ask six members of the Coach Pony community, how did you build that?
