3 Tips to Help You Deal with Your Scalability Problem
Scalability is defined as “a characteristic of a system, model or function that describes its capability to cope and perform under an increased or expanding workload.” Or in more relevant terms ... the ability to expand your coaching business and its revenue AND increase your profit margin (your labor stays constant while revenues grow ... sounds nice doesn't it?). 99.9% of coaches, trainers, consultants, counselors, authors and solopreneurs of every kind have 1 very big common problem: scalability.  It’s a problem because if you’re not in action doing whatever it is you do to make sales, sales stop.  Which means the money stops.  That’s the real problem. Wouldn’t it be great if money came in without you having to exert tremendous amounts of energy to generate every damn penny? On Wednesday, December 15th at 11am EST, Kim Andes, founder of Frame of Mind Coaching, will share the 3 keys to establishing scalability: 1.       Leverage what you know 2.       Provide an extraordinary customer experience over and over 3.       Technology Click here to register! Scalability is as much about leverage as it is about growth.  For a business to grow, evolve, and/or simply stay afloat, it must gradually move from prospecting-based to marketing-based.  A prospecting-based business means revenue is only generated when you are actively seeking sales; a marketing-based business is one with leverage – and therefore scalable – in which sales transpire without you having to exert tremendous amounts of energy. On Wednesday, December 15th at 11am EST, Kim Andes will share with you exactly how they have achieved a sustainable level of scalability in their coaching business, Frame of Mind Coaching (and in what areas theyneed to keep evolving). Scalability is also about working smarter not harder.  If you want to achieve higher sales, while exerting less energy, then don’t miss this event; the content of this call is HUGE for you – especially as we enter into a new year, with new goals! Join us Wednesday, December 15th at 11am EST and finish 2010 with a BANG!  Get serious about making more money, in less time, in 2011. Click here to register!
