Do You Have To Do Sales Calls As An Online Coach?

Do you have to do sales calls as an online coach

The pressure to use sales calls in the online space could drive a woman mad.

It’s as though that’s the ONLY possible way to build a successful business. While sales calls are FINE, it’s fair to ask if they are in fact the ONLY option.

Let me share with you where this stems from. The promise I never bought into – earning six figures in 90 days via high ticket sales calls.

This was the sales pitch that slid into my DM’s for three years while I built my biz.

I’d roll my eyes in disgust (but also a bit of desperation) and delete the message.

I’m five years in without a single sales call.

Here’s what I can tell you, after having built a six figure online health and fitness business (not via supplement or brand deals, but via MY OFFERS)…

To build a sustainable, streamlined biz takes:

  • TIME
  • A lot of trial, and a lot of error
  • Consistency
  • Grit
  • Clarity
  • An offer that works
  • Mindset shifts
  • Getting uncomfortable
  • Doing ALL OF IT
  • Seasons of constant learning and implementation
  • Selling, selling, selling
  • A willingness to suck, to fail but to NEVER give up.

And all of this is that much harder if you don’t have an audience yet.

These are the facts. And I will never sell you otherwise.

But you can do it. You can build a sustainable, authentic business. And you don’t have to be someone’s mini-me, or sell your soul to the social media butthole gods to do it.

You just need a grip of clarity and a plan (likely).

If you’re my people… an action taker who believes in yourself more than anyone else ever could. If you’re willing to WORK and if you’re in this for the long haul.

Then I invite you to check out my biz offers and resources. You can build your business in a way that doesn’t make you feel like a cringe coach in the DM’s. Promise.

P.S. There is nothing wrong with brand deals and affiliates. I work with many, but that is not how I built my biz, nor what I teach you do. Much love.
