Becoming a coach can be immediately rewarding when it comes to client work, but a little more daunting when you realize you’ve been thrown into the entrepreneurship pool at the same time, with little guidance on the business side of building your practice.  Much of the information available about business-building feels harsh and counterintuitive to service-based entrepreneurs.  

However, there is a way to use the same integrity, intention, and intuition you use with your coaching clients to build that business - one with a foundation and marketing strategy that supports both how you want to work and how you want to live.  Whether you’re just getting started, up-leveling your practice, or completely burned out and just know something needs to change, we’re going to dig deep for clarity, then put the pieces of the puzzle together so your business and lifestyle both thrive.

Participation in this course will help you tap into your highest level of service by identifying and attracting your ideal clients consistently, putting your resources to work for you - your time, your materials, and your money,  identify holes in the foundation of your business, and create an intentional brand and culture, take control of your content (maybe even uncover some resources you didn’t know you had!), master your messaging by learning to create copy and have conversations that convert, and ultimately amplify your outreach, impact, and income as a coach.

This is an experiential course with dozens of processes and tools to help you implement new strategies and changes immediately.  A custom workbook will be provided.  

This 3-part workshop series will cover the following topics in each session:

6-8:30 p.m. ET Tuesday, April 26

Nature-Based Coaching: 
Using the power of the natural world to help heal, inspire, and challenge

Registration Closed

Facilitator: Michael Scholtz

Date/Time: Noon-1:30 p.m. ET Wednesdays, May 25-June 15

Cost: $400 

CEUs: Wellcoaches 6, ACSM 6, NBHWC 6

We will explore empirical evidence of the positive effects of nature on emotional and physical well-being. From beneficial bacteria in the soil we touch, to breathing in the aromatics of plants and trees, to listening to the calming quality of birdsong, nature measurably impacts our health. We’ll discuss some of the compelling science as well as some ideas for helping clients connect to nature in a way that soothes and heals.


Beyond the benefits to our health, nature can inspire us to greater things. Being in the outdoors can help clients to tap into positive emotions, which can open their eyes to new pathways and resources they are not fully utilizing.


And, in nature, we can seek challenges. Nature provides an arena where adventures can unfold. We will talk about ways clients can discover their own growth-promoting adventures.

Participants in the course will benefit from the following learning:

  • You will learn about scientific evidence that supports how nature positively impacts our health and well-being.

  • You will learn about resources that you can share with clients to help them better utilize the healing powers of the outdoors.

  • You will learn about how nature can lead to inspiration, creating a space for your clients to create more expansive visions and take on more growth opportunities.

  • You will learn about resources that you can share with clients to help them use nature experiences to tap into inspiration.

  • You will learn about ways in which clients can use outdoor adventure as a tool for growth.

Magnificent Messmaker® Mindset Workshop – Getting Out of Your Own Way

Facilitator: Sheryl Richard

  • Do you want to bravely show up as your authentic self, embracing and working toward what you want in your life?

  • Does fear of success, messing up, or failing keep you from pursuing what is meaningful for you and retreating to a comfort zone?

  • Are any of these pain points for you: vulnerability, transparency, shame, inadequacy?

  • Have perfectionistic tendencies gotten in the way of who/how you want to be and what you want to accomplish?

Welcome to this class if you answered yes to any of those questions. Take a deep breath and know that you are not alone. Many of us go through life as though everything needs to be perfectly polished, including ourselves, in order for things to be accomplished or even started. We compare ourselves to others, overthink, plan, and prepare to the point of chronic procrastination. We exaggerate our strengths while masquerading our weaknesses and shortcomings for fear that we will be exposed. Why is this so? Well, there are various reasons. The thoughts and the narratives running through our minds are among the culprits. What do we do about it? We can accept that we are in this together, have grace for ourselves and others, and allow our experiences to be springboards rather than showstoppers in our resolve to resiliently persevere, grow, achieve, and thrive.

This class entails a review of, and deeper dive into, the concepts presented in the previous two Magnificent Messmaker® member classes (recordings included with registration). Sheryl Richard will walk participants through the Magnificent Messmaker® framework, which involves Self-Determination Theory and Triple Threat™ as they are related to growth mindset and healthy perspectives. She will also share practices and tools to carry the learning forward with real-life applicability. Breakout discussions, in-and-outside of class exercises, and other experiential opportunities will allow participants to explore perspectives of (and relationship with) failure, success, and what it means to thrive. Participants will learn practical ways to embrace and embody their authentic selves. In addition, guest speakers will share their perspectives and experiences, modeling what it means to be a Magnificent Messmaker®

The learning objectives for this course are:

  • Discuss the concept of Magnificent Messmaker®, Triple Threat™, and Self-Determination Theory

  • Identify practices for improving perspectives

  • Identify opportunities and practices for navigating the fear of messing up

  • Address healthy responses to making mistakes, failure, and success

  • Commit to cultivating a growth mindset
