Have you been dreaming of starting your own coaching business, but not sure what it takes? No matter where you are now if you say YES to your dreams, you can make them a reality! Let me walk you through my best tips for how to turn your passion into a coaching business!
I remember the moment that I knew there had to be something more for me.
I was working in a string of jobs that I didn’t love and I kept asking myself:
“Isn’t there so much more to life?”
One night, my coworkers and I got off late at 3AM after doing inventory at my retail job. They wouldn’t pay for taxicabs to get us home, and just sent a bunch of us out into the street in the middle of the night. At the time, I lived in a sketchy part of Toronto. I never felt more like a “number.”
There was no way I was going to work all night just to spend my paycheck on a cab home…so I took transit, and on the walk from the stop to my home by myself, I was gripping my phone with 911 already dialed.
It was at that moment I decided, “Enough is enough!”
If no one else was going to see my worth, I WAS.
I knew I wanted to do something with my life that I was passionate about…
Something that energized me every single day…
Something that would leave a mark on the world…
Something that I could look back on at the end of my life and be so proud that I had done!
I went home and journaled for hours. I remember these ideas were flowing through me so fast I couldn’t even keep up.
I didn’t know it at the time, but the ideas that came through that night were the beginnings of what became YES SUPPLY.
Now, I’ve built YES SUPPLY into a million-dollar coaching business that helps thousands of people all over the world. I get to wake up every single day IN LOVE with what I do, and deeply grateful for how I get to impact others.
One of the things I realized along the way is that everybody has the opportunity to do the same!
Especially now, when people are spending their time online and consuming more content than ever before…there’s a bigger client base than ever waiting for you to create the coaching business of your dreams.
So if you’ve been dreaming about doing something that fulfills you and brings abundance into your life but isn’t sure how to get started, let me guide you through my favorite tips for discovering your passion and turning it into a coaching business.
1) Discover What You’re Passionate About
If you have a desire deep down inside you — a gift, a talent, a dream that you want to pursue — if you find a way to use your strengths to offer value to other people, you can turn that passion into a coaching business!
You might even find that there’s something that you’re naturally good at — something you don’t even think of as a “talent” because it’s so effortless for you — but chances are that there’s someone else who’s struggling with it!
Before I built YES SUPPLY to what it is today, I first started my business by coaching clients on how to build their online presence through blogging and social media.
Soon, I learned that I could give someone step-by-step instructions of exactly what to do to be successful, but it wouldn’t matter if they didn’t have the right mindset.
That’s what led me to start studying mindset and manifestation, and I became OBSESSED.
Because I loved learning everything about mindset, manifestation, the subconscious mind, energy work, and Universal Laws, it was easy to think about, talk about, and share with others!
When you have that much passion for something, other people can feel that in your energy, which naturally draws in like-minded people who want to learn about those same things from you.
And keep in mind that your passion AND your coaching business is going to keep growing and evolving, just like you!
I may have started with helping people with their online presence, but that’s what led me to dive deep into mindset work, which is the core of everything YES SUPPLY is built around now.
So follow your passions, stay open to where they lead you… and know that when you find a way to help other people with your gifts, you can create a successful coaching business!
2) Become the Best at What You Do
One of the questions I get from people all the time when they’re first starting their coaching business is “how do I stand out from everyone else out there?”
(I have a whole post on how to stand out as a mindset coach if you want to dive deeper into that!)
But the major key to how I grew my coaching business and allowed money to flow easily to me was when I learned about the Law of Compensation from one of my favorite mentors, Bob Proctor.
The Law of Compensation states that the amount of money that you receive will be in direct proportion to the need for what you do, your ability to do it, and the difficulty in replacing you.
If you’re working in retail and you learn to do your job from a manual that a thousand other people are learning from, there’s not much difficulty in replacing you, because thousands of people can do that same job.
But even when you’re working for someone else, there are ways you can increase your own value.
When I was still working retail, for example, I made a decision to stop coming into work seeing myself as a Sales Associate. I knew in order to get a better job, I would need management and leadership experience, so I set my sights on that.
I focused not just on my personal sales goals, but on the sales goals of the entire store. I found ways to contribute to my coworkers so that they could meet their sales goals, too. I looked at the problems my managers were dealing with and I thought about ways to solve them.
This is what leaders do — leaders think about the whole.
I stepped into the identity of my next-level self, and soon I got the promotions that reflected that!
By solving higher-level problems than my pay grade, I moved up to a higher pay grade and a higher level of responsibility.
Soon, I went from working on the sales floor to becoming a Store Manager in just 3 months — which was pretty much unheard of in the company I was working for at the time — and when it came time for me to leave, they tried very hard to keep me.
This is just one example of how the Law of Compensation works, and it’s always working.
When it came time to start my coaching business, I knew that I could increase my value by investing in my growth. So I continued to learn everything I could to be the best coach I could be.
I became certified as a mindset and manifestation coach, and went on to study tools like Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnosis, TIME Techniques, EFT Tapping, and energy work — all of which I fell in love with and now teach others within the YES SUPPLY METHOD!
This is why I am always encouraging people to start their own business — because there’s more potential the more unique that you get.
With a coaching business, you can cater to your clientele and help them solve such specific problems, that there’s unlimited potential for growth, especially when you continue to grow and invest in yourself.
You’re already irreplaceable because you’re you — a one-of-a-kind human with unique gifts and talents — and when you invest in becoming the best at what you do, who’s going to replace you?
You can become the master at what you do.
You can create a program or offer that no one else could’ve thought of that serves others deeply.
You can speak on stages and share your unique story in the way that only you can.
And you can make a massive impact on the people who most need your help!
3) Open Yourself Up to Receiving in Your Coaching Business
Make sure that when you start a coaching business, you open yourself up to receiving.
This starts with showing up, sharing your story, and talking about your coaching business and what you have to offer. You can’t receive abundance in your coaching business if you don’t let people know who you are and what you do!
I can’t even tell you how many conversations I’ve had with coaches who are hustling so hard, posting constantly, going live every day on Facebook or Instagram, but they’re still struggling with money.
When I ask them, “What is your signature offer?” they often don’t have an answer for me. Sometimes they don’t even really have a way for people to contact them if they want to work together!
So once you’ve identified your passions and thought about who you want to serve and how you want to serve them, put it all together in an offer that you absolutely love! This is how you can start to attract your dream clients into your coaching business.
What do you want to offer?
Who do you want to help?
What can you create that you’re SO passionate about that you could talk about it all the time?
I remember when I first started learning about mindset and manifestation — I couldn’t stop reading books, buying courses, taking certifications, implementing and embodying what learned, and talking all about it to anyone who would listen!
So what’s your passion?
Is it Health and Fitness? Business? Relationships?
What have you transformed in your life that you would LOVE to help others transform too?
What do you want to achieve MASTERY in?
When you’re so passionate about something, it creates a vibration that draws in people who are attracted to that energy… it’s like you’re telling the Universe, “I’m open for business!”
And if you still find yourself struggling to receive the financial abundance that you’re dreaming about, you’ll want to do deeper work to release any limiting beliefs that are blocking you from letting money flow easily to you.

MINDSET IS EVERYTHING!
Whether you want to start a coaching business, build an online brand, or create anything else in this world, one of the biggest things that stops people is MINDSET.
We think about 60,000 thoughts per day, and we’re not even aware of most of them.
This is what keeps most people walking around living the same patterns, day after day, because the subconscious mind is what is running your life behind-the-scenes.
But when you learn to work with the subconscious mind, you become the powerful creator of your reality.
You can focus on what you do want to create instead of what you don’t want to create… and what you focus on expands.
You learn how to release any limiting beliefs that are holding you back.
You make the identity shifts needed to step closer and closer to the person in your dream life.
You can become the person who says YES to themself and manifests everything they want.
THIS is what I teach in the YES SUPPLY METHOD.
When you’re starting a coaching business, your mindset is something that you’ll work on every day.
YES SUPPLY helps you become a successful coach by giving you all the tools you need to work with the subconscious mind and energy.
You can become certified in life-changing modalities to work with the subconscious mind, including Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), clinical hypnotherapy, TIME Techniques, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT Tapping), and more.
With these tools in your toolkit, you’ll have everything you need to create a successful coaching business because you’ll never have to wonder if you have what you need to serve your clients.
When you create amazing transformations in your clients’ lives, you’ll easily attract clients into your coaching business because your results will speak for themselves!
This was a huge part of how I grew my coaching business so quickly — by investing in myself and learning all of these tools, I KNEW I could get clients results — and I had the testimonials to prove it.
The YES SUPPLY METHOD is also the one-stop-shop for everything you need to start your coaching business. We show you how to create your programs, how to market yourself, how to erase and eradicate your limiting beliefs by working with the language of the mind, and how to step into your higher power so that you can be successful as a coach.
