COURSE BDL

Business Development Lab

There's so much to consider when building a coaching practice:

  • Should I seem to coach anyone, or develop a niche?
  • Where can I find paying clients?
  • How do I introduce myself in different situations?
  • Do I need a web site? Liability insurance?
  • How will I know the best things to learn, without getting off track?
  • What systems do I need to develop, and which can I ignore?

And so much more!

This 20-hour course combines learning with action, and invites participants who are truly ready and willing to build their coaching business to do so under the guidance of Dr. Jim Vuocolo, MCC, a seasoned Master Instructor/Mentor, and the ongoing support of a peer mastermind group.
