People always ask me about branding and niche. It is funny because I did not focus on my brand when I first started as a health coach. My brand developed over time.
And to be honest, I was not clear on my niche either.
I was clear on my story and what had happened in my life and why I wanted to be a coach.
I must have re-written my ABOUT ME story 1,000 times and then it changed. The niche I had picked – emotional eating and food allergies was not the niche I would end up working with for very long.
I thought my own emotional eating issues and body image stuff would be a good match for me to help somebody else. I was wrong, I could identify with eating issues, I had them since I was 12.
But, it was all because I did not know how to express my emotions. It has taken me such a long time to find peace in my soul, let go of old memories as a child and move into being a woman, who can hold her power.
I had dealt with food allergies, candida and so on (read my full blown story — it was intense and still can be because I have Lymes and an autoimmune but that still did not define my niche.
I was trying to serve everyone and that does not work.
I am not saying niche yourself into a corner but the more clear on your niche and what is the wake-up problem this person has, the more successful you will be.
I had no idea I would coach other coaches on how to create rockin’ businesses and teach classes, masterminds, create done for you programs for health coaches and teach but that is what I am damn good at and I love it.
