A few years back, the sports network ESPN fired about 100 of their 1000 on-air personalities.
(I suspect this was because they forgot they were a sports network and started squawking about politics all the time, killing their viewership numbers …)
Those who were axed were pretty big names – “famous” people, former sports stars, and some of the smartest people in their respective sports.
It’s surprising when 100 television superstars can still get axed. Judging by their tweets at the time, most were caught off-guard by their dismissals.
This is why I have a coaching business …
I could never work under someone’s thumb, not knowing if today is the day that I show up at the office and I’m told to pack up my desk and hit the road.
Coaches don’t have to worry about that.
We can’t be fired. Our boss is staring back at us in the mirror.
Sure, if a coach doesn’t bring enough value to the marketplace, he or she will be fired (in a sense) since they won’t get enough clients to make it a viable business and will have to find something else to pay the bills.
But if you’re able to demonstrate your value and help enough clients, you’ll soon be turning away people because your practice is full.
I’ve had the opportunity to help a number of my clients make the transition from a 9-to-5 job to becoming full-time coaches, and I want to help more.
