Do you choose how you spend your time?

I knew, last year, that the way i was doing things wasn't really working for me.

I did the standard coaching thing of scheduling a call or meeting, my client and I would chat for an hour and they would come away with some action points. And we would schedule the next call or meeting in however many days' time.

We enjoyed the chats. But I didn't feel like my clients were making the progress they should. And we were spending lots of time hunting for gaps in our schedules when we could meet.

I didn't have the time-freedom that I was promising to my clients. And if I didn't have it, how could you trust me to deliver it for you?

So I used lockdown to rip it all to pieces and start over.

Now it's one small task per day, so you build momentum and make progress.

Now it's delivered online, so we can both work when it suits us best.

Now it's ongoing, so even after the core programme, we stay in touch and I make sure you stay on track.

I needed to walk the walk and build a business that gave me my own time freedom. It's working. And in the last three weeks, three new clients have agreed with me.

So do you choose how you spend your time, or is it chosen for you?
