Ways to make money as a Parent Coach

If you think the only way to make money as a Parent Coach is 1:1 coaching, think again!

In this article, I want to share with you a few additional ways you can create the income you desire while you build up your coaching business.

It wasn't long ago when I was wondering how I would ever pay the bills with my 1:1 Business Coaching. I knew people that needed my services, but every time I spoke to them about what I do, they said it sounded great but then didn't book with me.

Now, when I am on a call with a potential client, 8 out of 10 times, they book in immediately. 

What's the difference you ask? The difference is, I got clear on who I serve and how I serve them. I niched to becoming a Business Coach for Parent Coaches. And, if you are a Parent Coach, it is a no-brainer to work with me. (shameless plug:)

Niching is one of the things you will hear me say over and over to ANYONE that will listen! If you don't have a clearly defined niche, no one will be clear on...

How to increase Facebook Group Engagement


If one thing stays constant, it is the changing algorithms in Facebook.

It can be hard to manage your business when you are constantly trying to keep up to the new and improved ways of connecting with your audience. Believe it or not, that is exactly what Facebook wants you to do. They want you connecting with your audience in a meaningful and beneficial way.

Years ago you could add a post and let it sit there for all your group members to read. Now most don't even see 1/10th of the posts you add.

Our challenge this week is to increase engagement so that more of your group members see your content, and when you are ready to launch your own offer, more will see it. 

How to get set up:

  1. You can ask group members 3 questions when they join your group. The three most important questions are: 1. What are you struggling with most? 2. What do you hope to get out of this group? Advice, support, connection? 3. Please add your email (optional) so that I can keep you posted on important...

Create an Online Retreat

Bringing your community together creates an amazing connection that last a life-time. But what happens when your planned in-person event needs to happen online?

This was one of the questions I was asked during the COVID-19 pandemic as we watched the entire world shut down and told to stay home.

How do we still create a retreat atmosphere for our community, online?

My answer: It is possible, but you just may have to alter a few experiences to create the same effect you would if you were meeting in-person.

Let's start by addressing the purpose of your retreat. There are a number of reasons why people meet, but I have (for simplicity) broken them into 4 main groups.

  1. Education
  2. Entertainment
  3. Inspiration
  4. Connection

Your event/retreat purpose may include a bit from all 4 groups, but I would encourage you to rate them in order of importance.

For instance, if you are meeting during COVID-19, you may want to highlight inspiration and connection. If you are meeting when the world is back...

One of the great benefits of having my own business is that I can make any changes I want to my business, any time of the day, without anyone’s permission!  One of the biggest downfalls of having my own business is that I can make changes any time of the day without asking anyone’s permission!

You see my predicament here?

I want to change my logo, update my website, add new content to my sites, start a new project, call potential clients, create new programs, add more video, hire help…and the list goes on.  This is all great, but it becomes a problem when I have so many things I want to change that I just end up surfing Facebook and not doing anything.  Overwhelm has this affect on me.

And, if you have known me for long you know that I like to find analogies to parenting…well, the overwhelm of owning a business would be one.

I have so many things I want to do with the kids, so many projects to start with them, updates to their bedrooms,...

Can I loan you my sisters?

That’s not weird, right?

Well, join us at one of their kitchen islands any weekend and you will know why I want to share. This group of women are four of the best people I know. They are kindness, compassion, encouragement, love, support, and happiness, all rolled into one…well, four to be more accurate.

They are each incredibly successful…one revolutionized the horse racing business, re-establishing harness racing in Ontario after a near government shutdown, she was the first female board member at a major insurance company, and she finds time to put on massive community events to raise money for local charities…one owns a hugely successful travel company and just built her dream home overlooking the lake but still enjoys travelling the world when you can tear her away from her new home, one is an international motivational speaker, owns a huge occupational health consulting company, working with top 500 fortune companies and employs hundreds of people...

5 steps to help you fall in love with your life (again)

Do you ever get up in the morning and immediately start thinking about the school lunches you have to make, the pile of laundry that never seems to get smaller, the morning rush when no one is happy, or the hours spent at work when you just wish you could be home?

This is how I started every day…and my greatest desire was to climb back into bed.

Wouldn’t you love it if you could get up in the morning, excited for the day ahead, loving every minute and never wishing away the moments?

I call this ‘falling in love with your life’….all of your life – the good, the bad, the ugly…the menial tasks that can drive a parent crazy if we let it.

How would your life look if you could wake up and love it all?  Think of it like a new romance…the honeymoon stage…

Recently, I had the chance to work with a group of amazing women that wanted to find more love and joy AND peace in their life.  We shared, we did a lot of laughing...

Here is the ONE thing you can do to be HAPPY!!!

So, you want to be happy do you?

When I was younger I remember always wanting more…I wanted to be independent, I wanted to travel, I wanted to do it all…because I knew I would be happy once I did.

And most of the time I was successful at just doing what I wanted…but that was when I didn’t have responsibilities like a mortgage, oh…and kids.

Becoming a parent was a big eye-opener. No longer did my needs come first…and rightly so they shouldn’t when you have kids…you need to give your kids your love and attention…you need to nurture them and protect them…you need to feed, cloth, and teach them…you need to be present.

But it isn’t easy, is it? But what does easy have to do with being happy? Absolutely nothing…and here’s why.

Our lives are not always easy…things happen…kids need our focus, the bills need to be paid, the roof leaks, the septic backs-up (yes, this happened...

Resisting Parent Overwhelm – One Drawer at a Time

I am having one of those parenting overwhelm days. The kind of day when you know you have a hundred or more things on your ‘to-do’ list and you have no idea where to start so you do nothing. I call this parenting paralysis.

This feeling of overwhelm starts in my head and I keep thinking about everything I have to do, and then it works its way into my body…I just want to curl up under my comforter, watch Netfix, and wish the day away.

My desk is covered in projects to finish, bills to pay, clients to get back to, and teacher thank you cards to fill out…

My sink is full of breakfast dishes that I can’t put into the dishwasher until I empty the clean dishes out…

The bathroom/laundry room floor is covered in a pile of dirty laundry…

The dog needs to be walked….

The grass needs to be cut….

The dining room table is covered in board games that I promised I wouldn’t move 3 days ago so the kids can finish their game…

One thing that changed my entire life

Has this ever happened to you…you wake up one day and all the sudden everything is clear?  You know exactly what you should be doing and you know exactly why you are doing it.

I can honestly say that I can count on one hand how many times this has happened to me in my lifetime.

But, this last time was different.  It had an impact on my family life, my emotional health, my physical health, my spiritual health, and it also had a huge impact on the way I ran my business.

You may be wondering what could have such an impact on…really…all areas of my life.

The answer is simple.   Clarity.

Knowing what was important to me, what will get me out of bed in the morning, and what will drive me forward all day, was the answer to finding a better way to live my life.

Let’s back up a minute…to over 19 years ago when I gave birth to my first daughter.  I was one of those irritating parents that wanted to do everything right…all...
