The 10 commandments of The Coaching Business School

And here – courtesy of Anita Pizycki, they are (with tongue firmly in cheek):
1. Thou shalt not do complimentary coaching sessions;
2. Thou shalt not work on your web site before you have some clients:
3. Thou shalt not charge by the hour:
4. Thou shalt not live in the bullshit funnel:
5. Thou shalt not say “I am a coach”:
6. Thou shalt do only that which you love to do:
7. Thou shalt only have a niche for which there is a list:
8. Thou shalt believe in your own abilities:
9. Thou shalt lead an incredible support team:
10. Thou share share your authentic self with everyone.
If that list became my legacy in coaching I would be very pleased.
