In my opinion, coaches shouldn’t structure their businesses to charge by the hour.
If you’re trying to cobble together a bunch of single sessions at x dollars/hour, you’ll either have a tough time filling them, or get burned out if you do.
Or you’ll get a potential client looking at whatever your fee is (ie: $300 an hour), and be thinking “Gee, is this coach really worth 10x what I make per hour??? I work my butt off at my job … that’s crazy!”
You don’t want to be getting a look that says “I’m in the wrong business!”
Better to go with packages.
My main package is three months, but some other coaches go with 6 months or longer.
If you’re asked by potential clients: “So, how much do you charge per hour?”, here’s how you can answer (with props to Taylor Lindstrom for this):
“I don’t charge by the hour, I charge by the awesome”
I push the coaches that I work with to increase their fees. I know they’re good at what they do, so I don’t feel bad about doing it.
