After talking with 2,000+ coaches...here's the 2 biggest business problems that most coaches have

Today I'm going to be going over the top two most common problems I see with coaches that have a business.

Now, this is not for you if you don't have a business yet but I do know some coaches may find this informative and they may start thinking about starting a business in the near future. 

In my consulting program I've already spoken with thousands of of guys and girls who have run into these two problems that I am about to share with you. 

Problem #1 - Price 

Most coaches I've talked to undervalue themselves so this means they charge a very small amount for a service that they could be charging more for and they compare their pricing to everybody else in their area. 

When you try and undercut your competitors by offering cheaper pricing you will attract cheaper clients. These clients will pay you less and take you less seriously which means you'll probably run into a lot of problems with them in the long...

"My client rolled his ankle at my session & now his parents are suing me!"

Today's question is very serious and I have seen this question way more than you think.

Here is the question:

"Hey Ben, 

My client rolled their ankle at my session which I thought was no big deal but now a week later their parent are coming after me to pay for the medical bills. I don't know what to do now?"

If one of your clients gets injured at your sessions then yes they will go after you and they should go after you if you aren't properly insured. 

If I had a kid and he rolled his ankle at your session then I would do exactly the same as this parent is doing with this coach. I would chase the coach to cover for my childs medical bills. 

I've consulted with many coaches who treat their training businesses like a hobby and then later down the road they come into a bigger problem just like this coach here. Most coaches...

Running a business is NOT easy (watch if you are a new biz owner)

If you're thinking about starting a sports training business I want you to read this very very carefully. 

Everyday I get asked questions by coaches in all sports about how to start a training business specifically within their own sport. 

Most coaches want to have freedom and more flexibility within their own schedule and are currently looking to quit their current job and do this full time. 

When I first started my business I was also working a 9 to 5 job working for someone, and like many people I hated it! 

I hated doing it so much that this drove me to go full time with my own training business and I want to be completely upfront with you... It was hard! 

It still is very hard even to this day with so many years of experience. 

If you're in a position where you want to start your own business I want to let you know that NO ONE is going to give you the green light to start your business. Many coaches will send me messages saying asking me when...
