The Best Version of your Coaching Business - 30 days in Review

I've been busy over here working on making Training Tilt the best version it can be during these uncertain times but also well into the future.

Back at the beginning of the pandemic, for 30 days I created a blog or video to help coaches work toward creating the best version of their Coaching business.

The goal was to cover a bunch of simple and actionable tasks you could work on to help improve and strengthen your own business.

Many of you followed along and thanks for all your encouragement and feedback.

I thought I'd take the time to collate and summarize all of the videos onto one page so you could easily scroll through and watch anything of interest and then click through to the full article if you needed more detail.

I hope these videos have been useful and having them all in one place will make it easier to learn from them and execute the ideas in your business.

The first video is my intro to the series and the rest of the videos follow with a summary, the video and a link to click through to the transcription and full post.

You will need the best version of your coaching business during COVID-19

Graphic Design for Coaches

In today's world, as a small business, you can't really afford to hire a graphic designer for all the designs you want to do. You might hire them for a logo and/or initial website design, but after that, it becomes prohibitively expensive for small business because literally you should be creating new designs for all of your Facebook posts, your blogs, your ads, etc. We're creating designs daily. If not daily at least a few a week. So hiring a graphic designer just isn't really feasible cost-wise. So I'm going to show you a tool that we use. It's called Canva.
