Well, this is were it all begins to be written down and registered. The idea of this blog came to me while riding in the public transportation system of Bogotá. It came to me as a flash of ideas and it downed on me that the the most interesting part of getting somewhere is the journey in itself. So, here I am getting ready to share my journey with all of you and see if together we can draw conclusions that can help us lead happy and more fulfilling lives.
This morning, when I woke up, I had the feeling that I had dreamt of writing. Now, you might think, “so what?” But let me tell you that, until this morning, I have never written anything myself. I always considered that I was not the creative type and that writing was for other people, not me. Also, I have been recently told that Angels talk to us via messages, dreams, and thoughts. Following that idea, today They have been very busy with me!!!
While taking a shower, I felt the need to look into vision boards and see whether I could come up with an interesting blogpost that could help people create a vision board. So I looked into it and came across this page from one of my mentors, Linda Proctor, http://lindaproctor.com/visionboard-page/. Pay attention to John Assaraf who appears in this small video. He is a vision board master and a disciple of Bob Proctor, who also happens to be my mentor.
After breakfast, for some odd reason, I felt the need to search on YouTube for something I had seen a long time ago, the edited parts that are left out of the movie The Secret. In this 7 minute video I came across all the familiar faces of Bob Proctor, John Assaraf, Dennis Watly, and others, but the idea that downed on me and stuck to my mind was Eintein’s famous formula E = MC2. I understood what all these gurus of The Secret mean when they say “We are Energy”. Because we are energy we are governed by 2 universal laws, The Law of Vibration and The Law of Attraction. Sounds familiar? I will write more about this in other blogposts.
Later on while riding the bus, as I mentioned, I came to the idea of creating this blog in parallel to my official business blog, http://www.sarint.com. Then the idea for the title of this blog started to actually brainstorm me, leaving me with a mild headache. Some of the titles that I came up with were How to sell coaching services to arrogant individuals like I used to be!, Everyone needs a Coach, believe it or not!, and the current title, My Journey on Becoming a Life & Business Coach!.
The idea is to share with you on a daily basis what it is like to develop a coaching service. How does one go about promoting one’s services and how to deal with prospecting and potential clients. Also, what resources are available on the internet and that can help to develop this business.
Three of the hardest things that I have encountered are Social Media Marketing, dealing with potential customers that ask for a quotation or additional information but never reply nor follow up, and prospecting.
It is said that in North America alone over 60 billion USD are spent each year on getting people to know more, but there are not many programs like ours in which we focus on helping people to change the way they think, how to take their present results to catapult them to greater success and to do what they already know how to do.
Not long ago, I had the opportunity to give a small presentation to a Bank Branch office manager and 40 banking executives on setting goals and bridging the gap between what they know and what they do. After the presentation, everyone seemed to be happy with the information, a lot of heads nodded positively during the presentation and by the time I informed them that I was able to help them on an individual basis or as a team everyone scattered and ran for the hills!!!
Fortunately for me, I have the opportunity to be working with a very nice couple that is finding the program extremely interesting and helpful. I am focusing on making sure that they have a wonderful experience and become referent for future customers.
So, for the time being, I will stop here. If I have any more messages from my Angels bombarding me with things to share, I will sit down again. Until next time…
May the Angels guide your way and shine a light in your path!
