Dino Gomez here and you are listening to the Secrets of Coaching podcast, where we break down the nuances of growing a seven-figure online coaching business and we are about to get started in 3 2 1. That’s when I started this episode off by saying that you are absolutely crazy if you don’t think you can do this. And I’m going to prove it to you in today’s episode. If you are listening to this podcast and if you listen to these episodes, you know, consistently, I want to start by saying you are a badass, you are a go-getter, you are a visionary, you are an action taker.
You are doing all the things. You’re educating yourself with all the information. And that is awesome. That is step one. That is what 99 percent of people don’t do. Right. Think about friends and family and so forth that are not entrepreneurs. Most people go through life and they go, hey, I finished college and I’m done learning like myself. Development is now done. I get to just hang out and collect a paycheck and, you know, live Groundhog’s Day over and over again.
So I want to start off by saying, you are crazy awesome for being in that one percent. You are already going against the grain, even if you haven’t launched your business yet. If you plan to write, you are freaking awesome. You’re in the one percent mindset-wise than everybody else. Right? Society tells us entrepreneurship is a big risk. Right. And so already, if you have plans to get started already if you’re up and running, you are in the one percent.
Right. And the reason I say that is because of what people do in the online space. Right, are we’re consistently comparing ourselves to everybody else out there. Right. And we’re always going, OK, why am I not going faster? How did they do this? How do they do this? And I was the all those types of things. Guys, you’re already freaking awesome if you have launched your business or if you plan to launch your business and you’re going to you’re already in the one percent in terms of your mindset, understanding that entrepreneurship is the best vehicle to freedom.
All right. I notice I said freedom, freedom and fulfillment, and happiness. That is what entrepreneurship is about. That is what ultimately provides. All right. There will come a point in time you become successful enough where literally like you, you have enough money. So you stay in the game for the freedom, for the happiness, for the fulfillment that it provides you. And so that’s freaking awesome. All right. And so the reason I say this oftentimes is that, again, our mindset is crucial.
It’s key. It’s not the end all be all. And this is one of the things I’m going to rant and rave about in the short episode to date. Again, we’re going to keep the episodes shorter and punchier moving forward. But I hear so many people the same mindset. You just need to figure out your mindset. And I like to respond to them rhetorically in my head and say, really, if you only need the mindset and sit with your mind for 60 days, don’t touch your computer and let me know how much your online business growth mindset is one piece of the puzzle.
All right. There are many pieces of the puzzle that go into a successful business. You have to also have great messaging. You have to have a great stance. You have to have market positioning. In other words, how are you different than your competition? You have to have the right offer, the right price in the right program, delivery, all those different types of things. All right. The right lead gen sauce. You have to have traffic and or leads coming into your business.
And you also have to learn how to close clients as well as that’s sales. So the mindset is one piece of the puzzle that is a strategy as well. And then taking action. All right. And so the mindset is a big piece, though. It is a big piece. And it’s not the only piece. It is a big piece now. So I want to talk about this. You’re crazy awesome. Right, in so many different ways. And so I want to ask this rhetorical question you that this is a question I asked our clients recently.
I asked our clients recently. I was like, hey, Isaac, can you guys just let’s go around the room here. Why don’t you guys why does everybody take a moment and share with everybody else? What’s something you’ve done in your life that was scary or crazy and in hindsight was the best decision you’ve ever made? All right. And so I asked this question in, oh, my gosh, the responses we got were insane. Right?
I think about it. If you have children right now, that’s a miracle in itself. That’s unbelievable. Right. There’s no instruction manual on how to raise a human being. All right. And so the fact that you’ve already done that or are currently doing that is remarkable. Right. And so if you have kids. Right, and at any point in time you’re, you know, struggling with your mindset, whether or not you’ll make it as an entrepreneur, whether or not you can continue to do this if you have kids, that is probably the craziest, toughest thing in the world to do, is raise kids without an instruction manual.
They have their own personality like we’re in a kind of an interesting day and age as well. So that is freaking badass. So if you’ve done that, why can’t you grow your coaching business rhetorically? Ask yourself that question. Like, I’m raising a kid, I would say is a thousand times more difficult and I don’t have kids, but I just imagine so. Right. And but I asked that question rhetorically to our clients and the responses we got were insane like people.
I love learning. About our clients, you know, beyond just what they’re doing in their business, just them as individuals, it’s so cool. So we have clients of all different ages, all different countries. One gentleman is in his mid-70s. All right. So talk about a badass mid-70s and he’s launching his coaching business. He’s spent previously the previous 40 years in corporate America. And then he retired. And he’s like, no, I don’t want to just sit around and be retired.
He’s going to launch my coaching business. So super, super badass guy. Cool, cool guy. And so his story was what I was taking flying lessons in his and he’s from Australia. He’s a guy I was taking flying lessons with. And I think he said, if I remember correctly, that his buddy was was the pilot instructor and was teaching him how to do it. And so he did several lessons and so forth. And then without knowing, one day he goes back in for another lesson.
He gets in the plane, he’s in the driver’s seat, and his pilot instructor and or his buddies in the passenger seat. And then they start the plane up and then his buddy gets out of the plane and closes the door and says, hey, I’ll be right back and grab something. And he’s got his headset on. And then once his buddy gets out of the way of the small airplane is buddy, you know, messages and radios into his headset and say, hey, you are you’re going to fly solo this time you’re ready.
And so he wasn’t prepared for that. He thought it was going to be another like, you know, training with a copilot. Right. That’s experienced in case anything goes wrong. And his buddy says, nope, you’re ready. Like, you need to take, you know, take the plane up in the air and land it. You’re ready for this. And so he went ahead and did that. Right. But he said he was just, you know, he was freaking out.
Right. Like, oh, my gosh. Because he didn’t he didn’t know that this was the day. And he said he didn’t feel ready. But then the last and his instructor said, no, you are ready. So he went ahead and did that. And so it’s interesting to see him be reminded of that story. Right. And as soon as he was done sharing that story, I asked him, I was like, so why?
Like, how could anything else be difficult to you when you remind yourself of that story? Like, that’s crazy. I would be freaking out if I don’t like heights to begin with. But if I’m up in the air and one of these tiny little airplanes and have a few flying lessons, that’s crazy. Right? And so as we went around the circle and the mastermind and all these crazy stories, you know, a couple of members about how they fought in the war in Iraq and bullets flying past their head and doing all these amazing things and how they, you know, had to pick people up and carry them or bandage up a really bad gunshot wound and all these things.
Right. And gruesome situations. And it’s I remember talking to one of our clients who’s done super, super well, and he served in the military. And before he got started, he’s like, I’m not sure I have the qualifications to be an online coach. And then he shared we went deeper and he shared with me that he had served in Iraq. And you know, he had these certain missions that he was on. And I was like, dude, you that’s so much earlier what you did there.
That’s amazing that you served in Iraq. And, you know, he was a gunner on top of a tank. And so he’s like the main target. Everybody goes for the gunner on top of the tank. And so, I mean, it’s just remarkable. So it’s like our mind is so powerful in that it can convince us because we’re doing something new, even if it’s just sitting in front of a computer wiggling our fingers, that this is scary because it’s unfamiliar territory.
But just make sure you remind yourself how awesome you are. Right. My question for you to think about, right, is to spend a moment. And if you want to write this stuff down, it’s a great exercise. Write down all the cool, awesome things you’ve done in your life and remind yourself how much of a badass you are, because I guarantee you you’ve done some crazy, awesome things that were super scary at the time and everything turned out OK.
All right. And use that as fuel to remind yourself that this is just a grown and online business is really just sitting in front of a computer typing the right things and saying the right things on video like that. In a nutshell, that’s what it is, whether you’re talking to clients are doing the marketing side of it. And so you’ve done crazy things before, my friend. Remind yourself of that and do that again. All right. You will be fine.
