October 5, 2022- Episode 34: Interview with Academy member, Katy Frankie

Thanks for joining Amberly today as she interviews Christian business coach and mom of 10, Katie Frankie.  Katie shares her entire story of waking from a dream that led her to seek out personal coaching, which in turn led her into business coaching to help other moms.  She is a member of the academy and the mastermind group.  This conversation will inspire you as you pursue your own coaching business. 

September 28, 2022- Episode 33: Your Greatest Business Asset

I consider it a great privilege that God called me to work with Christian women like you in your coaching business.

What this means for you, is that you understand Ephesians 2:10: “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them”.

What this means for me, is that I get to remind you when you forget.

One of the ways that we work through this (and spoiler alert, rarely is anything a one and done in your business) is strengthening and renewing your mind in belief.

We work through this with a BELIEF PLAN. Through the belief plan process that I teach, you look for the evidence you DO HAVE that you were called to this work. You create your goals and achieve your dreams from this place.

Believe it or not, your income and impact plan COMES from BELIEF.

And LIVES transformed.

You think about the income you want to create in your business, what you charge in your packaging, and the results you deliver with your offer -- how many sales will it take to reach that goal?

When creating your BELIEF PLAN, get your three worst fears out of the way.

Write them down.

Take a REAL HARD look at them.

How do those fears feel?

What thoughts are coming up?

This is important in your belief plan, because the business you desire is on the other side of these fears.

Your fears aren’t one and done either, so that’s why I coach you on what to do as you do the emotional behind the scenes work of your business.

As part of Belief Plan coaching, I have a list of questions I ask. For now, I want you to get started with these three so you can take action today in your business.

Why DO you love coaching?

What is always 100% in your control?

What experience and evidence do you already have that this is the work for you?

I actually have access to this entire training for you in my instagram bio, so if you’re not following there - head on over there to grab this training!

I’ll actually send you a handful of videos to help you in your coaching business when you do!

September 21, 2022- Episode 32: Being Who He Created You to Be in Motherhood & Business

Have I said this before in a million different places? Why, YES, I have. But with the way our brains work - we must hear this OVER AND OVER AND OVER again!

It’s like I was telling my girls the other day…

If you focus on the gifts and talents God has give OTHER PEOPLE in (volleyball, artistic ability, looks, you name it) then you WON’T be focusing on the ways he’s gifted you: hospitable, friendly, funny, etc.)

AND THE SAME GOES FOR YOU AND FOR ME in our 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s.

When I started my life coaching business, I had experienced 6-figure success in a different business.

During those few years of that business, I had learned everything about online marketing and group coaching and setting up facebook pages and implementing systems.

While yes, I took the time to learn how to market online through my friends Google and YouTube and little courses and programs, there was the most important part of business that couldn’t be “researched”.

It was what set me apart.

It’s what sets you apart.

It is THE part God Himself has created in you and in me.

It’s the part He has created Through mentoring and meeting people where they were in their physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health through various ministry, personal development, and life experience.

All of my life, I had basically been “coaching”.

Just like you.

It’s why you are here.

It’s the fire behind the business you desire.

But here is the truth:

Being passionate about spurring others to step into the highest version of themselves God created them to be IS NOT ENOUGH to create a business.

It doesn’t always yield clients.

You MUST KNOW the foundation of starting your business.

It starts with:

Believing you’re a life coach.

Trusting you’ve been created FOR THIS.

Knowing HOW to package and price your offer.

Communicating this VALUE to others.

Having a simple client system for consults, invoicing, your personal process for coaching, and scheduling.

I help you with each step in The Christian Life Coach Academy.

BUT, the decision is all yours.

The decision is continually believing that the world needs who God created you to be, and continually trusting that those dreams were planted in you for a reason.

Having journals and printables of all your ideas IS NOT ENOUGH to create a business.

You MUST IMPLEMENT the foundation of starting your business.

And you must do so simply so you can honor your FIRST priorities.

We actually had a conversation about this recently in the CLA. As a matter of fact, I am going to insert the moment in this call that I shared some thoughts on motherhood and business that was also being talked about with a client I was coaching.

Let’s listen…

As you can hear, there is more than meets the eye in The Academy.

We coach on LIFE and each step of your business in The Christian Life Coach Academy.

The decision is continually believing that the world needs who God created you to be, and continually trusting that those dreams were planted in you for a reason.

September 14, 2022- Episode 31: Embrace Beginning

I am where I am in my coaching business, because I know each and every day, with each and every idea, each and every client, each and every podcast, there is something brand new.

A new lesson for me to learn.

A new experience.

A new person connecting.

It’s always new.

Always beginning.

Always a beginner.

Seriously, I consider myself a beginner EVEN 5 years into this.

Multiple niches, multiple business models, and multiple six figures later.

There is ONE thought that has kept me going, trying, failing, and succeeding.

“THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING”

The way to carry that thought into every idea, every consult, every social media post, every new experience or skill you acquire in your business journey of life coaching is to embrace it.

Embrace being a beginner.

Will it be:

Uncomfortable.
Scary.
Confusing.
Frustrating.
Exhausting.

YES.

Keep embracing it.

When you don't embrace being a beginner, you’ll start and stop, compare yourself to others, and have yourself convinced “it’s not meant for you”.

When you DO embrace being a beginner, you have your head down learning your lessons, failing your failures, and building your business by serving your clients.

Keep beginning.

That’s the exact path to impact.

That’s the exact path to income.

That’s how YOU create the exact path to your dreams.

One beginning at a time.

September 7, 2022- Episode 30: Your Failures Tell the Story

Do you know how many things I’ve tried AND FAILED AND FELT “LIKE A FAILURE”?

Do you know how many of those things I would be all fired up about one minute and then didn’t want to do the next?

To me, failing is anything that makes me feel embarrassed, rejected, inadequate, or like an imposter.

In business, that means ALMOST ALL OF IT. πŸ€ͺπŸ₯΄

From photo shoots to live videos.

From sending weekly emails to sales sequences.

From paid advertising to podcasting.

From explaining to family and friends what I “actually do”— to continually stepping out and doing something new.

Your actions will tell the story.

As will, your INACTIONS. πŸ˜‰

Your actions and inactions tell the story of what you really want.

The story of what you’re willing and not willing to do — those things that might cause you to feel embarrassed or rejected or inadequate or “LIKE” a failure.

Feeling “like a failure” is part of the story.

Being WILLING to fail is part of the story.

Failing — IS — the actual story.

August 31, 2022- Episode 29: Identifying Emotions to Move You Forward

In today’s podcast Amberly shares how a recent decision she made allowed her to see three MASSIVE emotions that have been holding her back from some places she wants to take her business.

The better you are at coaching…the better business you build.

August 17, 2022- Episode 27: When You're Overwhelmed

One of the listener favorites around here is that Amberly, as a mom of five, and multi-six figure business owner, is vulnerable, authentic, and transparent. She is an example of what’s possible when it comes to life AND business, but she is no unicorn and does not steer away from the parts that are hard and challenging. In today’s episode, Amberly unintentionally takes us down the path of a series that began last week.

A follow up from last week’s episode of: what you do in life and business when you’re unmotivated and uninspired to what you do this week: when you’re OVERWHELMED. You will feel encouraged, inspired, and have some take aways to apply if and when YOU might feel overwhelmed in life or business. As you’ve heard her say a million times: “Life and business happen alongside one another. How you show up in life is how you’ll show up in business.”

If you’re new around here, the first step to get to know Amberly a little more and have access to some free training, coaching, and teaching, is to start with YOUR personal Belief Plan for the business you desire. This is from a workshop Amberly hosted this summer for her students in The Christian Life Coach Academy.

August 10, 2022-Episode 26: Unmotivated and Uninspired

Thanks for joining Amberly today. It's easy to think your entrepreneurship journey as a life coach has to look a certain way or like someone else's to be "successful". It's easy to think you have to have EVERYTHING ready before you begin: your office, your background, your life, your home. I'm here to assure you, YOU DON'T. If any of us wait to start until we or "it" is ready - we will either never start or simply delay helping the ones God has created us to help.


In this episode, I share the behind the scenes of how my life and environment was anything BUT ready before I created The Christian Life Coach Academy and had *I* waited, the women I am coaching wouldn't be coaching HUNDREDS of women collectively. Additionally, they wouldn't be making an income to give generously to the Kingdom and meet the needs (and desires) of their families.

 

In fact, just this week, my client Chelle will hit the first $25K in her business and she began her business 3 months ago WHILE working her full-time job.

 

July 27th- Episode 25: Interview with Jenn Boughey, 6-Figure Life Coach

Thanks for joining me today as I interview my friend and colleague, Jenn Boughey.

On this πŸ”₯episode, “It’s like we were on the phone”…

that’s how my mom described a recent episode and that is how I’ll describe THIS episode with my dear friend and fellow life coach, @jennboughey.

Jenn and I made the fatal mistake πŸ˜‚ of scheduling 45 minutes for the podcast when we hadn’t had a real conversation in TOO LONG.

We made up for it by calendaring in a 2-hour phone convo just a few days later! 😍

One of my favorite things Jenn shared in this episode was about her personal transformation.

I’ll sum it up in this quote: “I had a new spirit but an old mindset.”

Jenn is a mom of 4. Licensed counselor. LIFE COACH. As a business owner, she sells what her heart is passionate about and prices her packages just a little more than feels comfortable.

Jenn has the experience of both 1:1 coaching AND group coaching and shares both where she overdelivers and undercharges.

My second favorite thing Jenn said in this episode - that aligns with my mission to lead others in impact and income WHILE prioritizing biblical womanhood in the home is this:

“I have to feel good about my time away from family. It has to make time to step away to spend time in my business.”

You’re WELCOME to join us in our conversation.

It’ll feel just like we’re on the phone...

July 20th- Episode 24: The Power or Pressure of Your (Business) Investments

Thanks for joining Amberly today as she shares how to experience the POWER vs the PRESSURE in Your (Business) Investments.  Oh, boy.  This one is πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯!  Do you struggle with feeling like you’ve bought too many courses, programs or coaching?  If you feel like you “aren’t doing it right” or are “falling behind” because you can’t get everything you need to learn from the modules to make your business work”?  

Newsflash: YOUR THOUGHTS CREATE THE (lack of) RESULTS IN YOUR BUSINESS.  Stop wasting time beating yourself up and telling yourself you don’t have the time to learn what you need to to build your business.  Wanna know what builds your business?  THOUGHTS ABOUT SERVING THE PEOPLE GOD HAS CREATED YOU TO HELP AND TAKING ACTION.

PS - even if it were true that you “don’t have enough time to watch all the modules” — your screen time would tell a different story. Today I had everyone look at theirs.

June 15, 2022 - Episode 19: The Power of Asking Good Questions

Thanks for joining Amberly today as she discusses the power of asking good questions, not only in our coaching businesses, but also in coaching ourselves. How you build your thoughts and your beliefs about why you are doing what you are doing is all about asking good questions.  

 

A note from Amberly: Wouldn't you know I would find the ACTUAL questions I was referencing in this podcast. I always come up with something I missed - and guess what - you will, too - every step of the way!

Here are the ACTUAL 5 Questions You can Ask Yourself:

  1. Where am I doubting?
  2. What would I be doing if I believed what I have done until now has worked, is working, and will continue to work?
  3. How could I choose to indulge in belief > disbelief?
  4. Where could I simplify even more in my business: marketing, planning, and most importantly, THINKING?
  5. What are the results I can celebrate now?
