UM Coach QuickStart: A Genuine Invitation

The Essence: Time Blocking for Progress

I’ve found immense value in a simple technique: time blocking. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s a method where you segment your day into dedicated time slots, each for a specific task. This ensures that you prioritize and focus on what truly matters. By carving out a period specifically for your coaching business, you’re setting the stage for significant progress. This is the foundation of the M.A.X.I.M.U.M. efforts model: momentum, accountability, extrinsic rewards, intrinsic rewards, mixed with, unified, mindfulness.

The Power of Collective Effort: Body Doubling

Ever heard of “body doubling”? It’s a productivity strategy rooted in the idea that tasks, especially challenging ones, become more manageable when tackled in the company of others. Think of those silent study groups where everyone’s engrossed in their books, or walking buddies who motivate each other to take that extra step, or even public workspaces buzzing with the energy of shared purpose. The mere presence of another person, working alongside you, can act as a catalyst, making daunting tasks feel achievable.

That’s precisely one of the core principles behind the UM Coach QuickStart. We’re not just working; we’re body doubling, amplifying our efforts through shared energy and focus. Together, we’re making the hard tasks easier.

Why I'm Offering This

I’m not a business coach. But, as a mindfulness coach, I’ve seen many of our peers face challenges I’ve encountered myself. I’ve invested time and resources to overcome these hurdles. My aim? To share this knowledge, helping you navigate these challenges more efficiently.

My Diverse Experience

While my current role is as a mindfulness coach, my career has spanned various domains: product development, marketing, analytics, coding, AI prompt engineering, podcasting, content creation, television production, and more. I’ve been deeply involved with startups and their ecosystems, including running coworking facilities and contributing to programs like Startup Weekend, Startup Foundation, and Startup Next.

Whether you’re curious about building a website, growing your coaching business offline, creating a podcast series, developing community, or even leveraging AI tools for creativity, I’m here to chat and guide.

The QuickStart Framework

Drawing inspiration from the Startup Weekend model, where participants go from an idea to a functioning business in 48 hours, our approach will be more relaxed but equally structured.

  • Thursday: Introduction and discussion (1 hour)
  • Friday: Further discussion (1 hour)
  • Saturday: Discussion and dedicated work time
  • Sunday: Discussion, dedicated work time, and celebration (1 hour)

The crux? On Saturday and Sunday, we commit to action. These touchpoints serve as check-ins, but the surrounding hours are for you to work on your coaching business.

Three Pillars of QuickStart Focus

To streamline our efforts, I’ve categorized our tasks into:

  1. Discover: Identifying and understanding your client.
  2. Connect: Building bridges through emails, teachings, or offline courses.
  3. Generate: Creating assets like podcasts, videos, or focusing on monetization.

Thursday and Friday will be our planning phase. Over the weekend, we’ll dive deep into execution. And as we navigate, we’ll employ my PRRP tactic, a series of UM techniques, to tackle uncertainties and discomfort. Sunday will be our day to celebrate our achievements.

Additional Support: ClarityFlow

Time zones can be tricky, but I’ve got a solution. ClarityFlow, a messaging tool designed for coaches, allows for audio, video, or text communication. It’s more intimate than standard messaging platforms and perfect for our QuickStart program. Whether you’re a DIY enthusiast or someone seeking more guidance, this tool will be invaluable.

In Conclusion

This isn’t just a program; it’s an invitation. An invitation to commit, to grow, and to harness the collective wisdom of our community. Whether you’re just starting or looking to expand, I’m here, not as a business coach, but as an experienced friend, ready to support and guide. Let’s embark on this journey together.
