If you're lacking the fundamental Business Know-How to get into the Coaching/Consulting Industry (the industry of helping others) - you will not make it very long and will have to go back to where you were before:
Your 9 - 5 job, always thinking:
Why didn't this work? What if I would have been able to MAKE this business work? Where would I be right now?
We always regret the things we did't do much more then the things we did.
NO 2: LACK OF CLARITY
When it comes to offering what they are great at, a lot of Coaches and Consultants lack clarity.
How does that show up?
It shows up when it takes you 27 minutes to explain, what you do.
It shows up when people don't buy and think your offer is too expensive.
NO 3: NO (OR NOT ENOUGH) LEADS & CLIENTS
When it comes to finding leads and clients, Coaches & Consultants are often clueless. Where do I start? Is a question I get frequently.
On top of that, a lot of us have a very bad relationship with sales and hence do not like to ask for money. Unfortunately a business without sales (& clients) is not a business. It's just a hobby.
