get ready to make 2022 the epic year your coaching business takes off!
A 7-week bootcamp
your coaching business
More clients - more money - more impact
So, you've decided that you want to become a coach. More than anything, you want everyone on this planet to wake up to their true potential - you want people to know w.ho they really are – how life works. How we create our experience. AND for yourself, you also want to create a coaching business that's both rewarding and soul-satisfying - one where you get to stand out, be seen, attract clients, and make money.
BUT...when it comes to growing your business and making that happen online, you feel overwhelmed and confused by the world of marketing, messaging and sales - and then there's the fact that you're sinking in an online tech quicksand!
Either way, all of it stops you, closes you down, and even though you may have received some coach training and certification, you lack the confidence to put yourself out there.
And even when you do promote your services, no one pays attention, you hear crickets, and clients are not lining up to hire you. That's when procrastination sets in, and before you know it, your dream of being a coach gets buried in a sea of self-doubt and imposter syndrome. And you wonder whether you're really cut out for business. And the thought of having to go back to the grind of getting a regular job looms heavy over you.
What if there was a better and easier way of building a business - one without all the overwhelm?
LIFT OFF is a program that will finally get you up and running so that you can stand out and be seen. Why? Because you're going to get clarity about your ideal client (yes! you need to niche down) and what you are actually offering (selling) people (yes! remember you are in business). You're also going to learn how to talk to and communicate powerfully with your ideal client so that they believe without a doubt that you are the one who can help them. They will want to buy your services.
LIFT OFF is also for coaches who want to create a business that's connected to your soul. It's for those who want to ditch sleazy sales manipulation tactics and avoid looking phony and instead show up with integrity and authenticity - it's a business model that allows your inner wisdom and intuition to guide you - a business that's aligned with your
LIFT OFF is also downright practical! We're going to teach you the nuts and bolts of how to set up and put in place the essential marketing strategies that every business needs - things like having a clear marketing message, how to get clients to follow you, how to write posts and blogs that get attention, how to have a sales conversation without manipulation, and much much more...
LIFT OFF is a program that's designed with both strategy and soul in mind. Business strategies alone do not guarantee success and neither does spending your days doing deep inner work. But when you put these two things together - BINGO! You have a winning formula.
LIFT OFF is where Soul Meets Strategy
Does this sound like you?
You're tired of winging it in your business.
You lack clarity about who your ideal client is.
You don't know how to find clients.
The tech part overwhelms and closes you down.
You struggle with trying to explain your core message.
You agonize with not knowing what to do and when.
You struggle with self-doubt about your worth and how you can serve people.
You're still trying to give yourself permission to have both feet in your business?
You hold yourself back from putting yourself out there.
You are always signing up for freebies hoping they will help you.
You're forever throwing spaghetti at the wall because nothing is happening and you’re hoping something - anything - will stick.
If you recognize yourself in this list, don't despair - it's not your fault -
LIFT OFF has come to your rescue.

what you're going to learn.
The rocket fuel to get you READY TO STAND OUT & BE SEEN
DISRUPT YOURSELF - Starting a business shines a light on our fears, & limiting beliefs about who we think we are and what we believe we are capable of achieving. Starting a business requires that we let the old self - the one that tells us we don't have what it takes - fall away. It's about trusting that we are not stuck with our personality constraints because the old self is just not going to cut it when you're being called to put yourself out there and promote yourself.
Disrupting yourself also means that you acknowledge you're in a Divine partnership in your business- that you're business has the best CEO one could ever ask for - Universal Intelligence. You'll learn how to align yourself with your divine partner and how to become an open channel for greater creativity, productivity, and abundance.
FINDING YOUR SOUL’S NICHE - Identifying a powerful niche is the most important foundational piece of your business. Without a targeted niche your messaging lacks clarity and connection. What is your business? Who do you most want to serve? What issues are you most drawn to? What have you “seen” that you could share with others - What is unique to you? Niching down will allow you to position yourself to have more impact. When you try to coach everyone, you coach no one.

Linda creates amazing programs that meet coaches where they currently are and gives them the confidence to know that they are enough and that they have what it takes to create a dream coaching practice.
It has personally taken me years to learn what I know about coaching and marketing because so much of what’s out there has been a hit and miss. It has also cost me thousands of dollars. Linda takes you by the hand making it so much easier for coaches who not only feel overwhelmed and burdened by too much information but who also hold themselves back due to a lack of confidence. And they can get all of this without spending a fortune.
I couldn’t get enough of listening to her personal stories about what she went through, about the truth of the coaching industry, what to expect, the missing pieces, the know-how, and what is truly possible for all of us to create a coaching and heart-centered business.

Linda's program is a goldmine – (The Confident Coach). I don’t think there are enough words to express how much I loved it. I had a zillion insights. With every lesson, I found myself engaged, inspired, and popping with ideas that were original, creative, fun, and spontaneous. This program will change the game of how to create a thriving and fulfilling coaching business. It is so rich in content, imagination, and insight. It has helped me get the clarity needed to get out of my fear and make a difference. Thank you Thank you Thank you. What you have created here is priceless.
Sue Cross – Coach
A huge thank you to Anke Herrmann from Taming the Tech Monster for her patience, expertise, inspiration, and coaching with me over the last few months. When we started I had wild ideas and a big vision. Many hours of productive, fun, and efficient work later I have an understanding of the digital business world, way more knowledge, and confidence.
The result is more time to bring my vision into life, better service to my clients, better-structured admin, and the tech monster eats out of my hand and comes for an occasional cuddle.
If you need a coach to make sense out of your heart's desire and how to present yourself online reach out to Anke Herrmann, I will definitely continue working with her.
