How To Find Your First 5 Paying Clients As A Wellness Coach

If you’re ready to find your first 5 paying clients, then let me ask you…

Who do you know that could benefit from a Wellness Coach? I mean really benefit?

Like, ‘I have a new lease on life’ benefit?

Why do I ask? Let’s take a walk down statistical road together.

  • 90% of doctor visits are stress related.
  • 75% of health care costs are related to preventable diseases. Yes, preventable.
  • 1/3 of the population is overweight/obese.
  • In the US, over $17 billion dollars is spent on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications.
  • Over 1 billion is spent on sleeping medication.

You get the picture. So let me ask you, could you list 5 people (friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, etc) that could benefit from having a wellness coach?
