Welcome back to another episode of The Legal Paige Podcast. I am so excited to have my good friend, business coach and strategist Laylee Emadi. Laylee is an educator, podcast host, and photographer with a heart for serving clients and fellow creatives. She believes in serving the creative industry with heartfelt encouragement, honest advice, and a shared pursuit of the ever elusive "balance".
Things we talk about:
- How to become an online business coach.
- What you need to do to add in online offerings into your business and to create and impactful revenue stream.
- Our honest advice on how to find the right business coach for you and your personality.
- The no-no's you need to look out for and red flags to avoid when not only being a coach but seeking out a coach as well.
Here are a few quotes:
"A lot of people really want to just dive into the online space because there is a lot of potential for making a really good living, creating extra impact, and reaching more people. But I feel like there are so many pitfalls when you just jump into that."
- Laylee Emadi on getting into the online space
"The first thing that you need to do is figure out what you want to teach and who you want to teach it too. So I guess that's two things, but if you don't know who you want to teach things to you, and you don't know what it is that you want to teach, you're kind of throwing, you know, throwing spaghetti at the wall and seeing what sticks, and that's just never a really good strategy"
- Laylee Emadi on the first things you need to do when considering becoming an online educator
"I think the biggest thing that people forget is that it takes the same amount of time. Maybe longer to get yourself set up and up to the level that you're at in whatever industry that you have grown into. It takes that same amount of time in the education industry, and so just allowing that time to grow and to really invest in yourself. Time-wise I think is something people forget, so you've got to get systems set up for the education side, the coaching side, the strategy side of your business, the same way that you have systems set up in your florist wedding planning, whatever skill or craft or service-based industry that you're in."
- Laylee Emadi sharing the number one thing people forget when they dive into the educator side of business
