I love being a coach. In fact, I love it so much that when I launched my coaching practice, I was absolutely determined to find a way to earn a living at it. And my practice has thrived since the very beginning. In fact, I earned six figures in coaching fees in my very first six months as a coach — not from teaching, not from consulting, not from selling — from doing one-on-one life and career coaching.
I earn a terrific living doing work that I love. And I’m often asked to explain how I’ve made such a success of it.
The short answer is that I know how business works, having earned an MBA from Wharton and spent twenty years as an executive with Johnson & Johnson, including running a billion-dollar global consumer products business. But that’s not the whole story. I’ve also learned a lot by researching, meeting with experts, trying things, building on what works, and changing what doesn’t. It all adds up to a fairly simple approach that has worked for me and for the many coaches I’ve coached through the process.
So I’ve decided to put everything I know about building a successful coaching practice
into a course, and I’m about to offer it for the first time (at a special introductory rate).
I’ll tell you just how I earned six figures in coaching fees in my first six months as a coach
and offer a step-by-step approach you can use to build the practice that’s right for you.
The course will will include six information-packed live web-based class sessions plus a variety of optional ways for you to connect one-on-one with your classmates and with me to help you to apply the steps to your coaching practice.
Everyone is welcome, whether you’ve had a coaching practice for years or are preparing to work with your first client.

“I appreciated the down-to-earth approach and how information was broken down into applicable coaching interventions. I also appreciated Lynda’s willingness to share her own experiences and show vulnerability, which allowed for better emotional connection.”
