James Woosley’s journey into coaching was started by his association with several influencers and mentors, including Dave Ramsay. He’s now a coach, author and host of the popular podcast “Conquer Your Kryponite”, which aims to help entrepreneurs around the globe.
BECOMING A COACH
James was always a coach – he just didn’t realize it! He started teaching a Dave Ramsay course, which led to him meeting several mentors who helped him become a coach. He opened his business about five years ago.
His biggest obstacle, like most coaches, was finding new clients. A bad experience with a past client opened his eyes to the value or prequalifying potential clients and to not be afraid to drop ones who aren’t the right fit for his business.
GETTING NEW COACHING CLIENTS
James gets his new clients through his relationships with people.
