My husband and friends who read the blog keep asking me to write a little more about the big transformation I have done over the past few months. I guess I am giving in to their wish today by telling you about my running. In the past six months, at a ripe old age, I have become a runner and am running some road races. Here is a link to a newsletter I write that describes “the big race” I did this summer that started it all and the “life lessons” I learned in the process.
That road race was such an interesting experience that I immediately signed up for another one that is this Saturday. This race is an 8 kilometer race that is part of the local Apple Festival. Apples are a big deal in this town as we have many local growers. The marketing of the entire festival is interesting to watch each year. I have been wondering if there will be cider at the water stops during the race…. Stay tuned next week and I’ll report on how the humble apple was or wasn’t used in relation to the actual race.
As I was renewing my Coaches Console account for another year, I realized that many coaches may not be aware of the value of this system. Let me tell you a little about the system before I tell you that it is on sale right now. Coaches Console calls itself a “client relationship management system”. What it really is though is a package of many of the paperwork parts of a coaching business in one neat system. It allows you to customize your correspondence with your clients, process payments, have a newsletter, track your sessions for certification and so much more.
Clients love to use Coaches Console because it makes their call focus forms, scheduling and payments all very effortless. I love the system because once it is set up, it takes care of everything for you. Beginning coaches take note – included in the price is a basic website! There is also pre-written newsletter content and coaching forms if you need those things. The company is dedicated to customer service and has done regular upgrades of the system throughout the time I have been a customer.
Go to the Coaches Console website and check it out. Don’t delay because they have been having a big promotion through the month of August. (My apologies for taking so long to tell you about it…) Right now, the set-up fee is half price – only $49 and you will lock in the current monthly fee of $29 forever. That price is going up on September 1st. So hurry on over and check out the system – it may be just what your coaching business has been looking for.
