Client Case Study of Kim Duggan, Intuitive Business Coach
Kim’s dharma is helping people have breakthroughs on a very deep level and she has raving fans to prove it.
But when Kim first started working with me about a year ago, she was at a major stuck point in her business.
She was bumping up against an income ceiling that was lower than what she intuitively knew was possible. She was working long hours, including evenings and weekends, she had lost enthusiasm for her work, and her stress level was really high trying to manage it all.
As a service-based solopreneur on a super tight budget, she had spent years shooting in the dark and not really making progress. She knew she could take her clients to higher levels of success, along with her own income, but she didn’t know how to make it happen and she didn’t recognize some of her own beliefs and behavior patterns keeping her stuck and overwhelmed.
Does any of that ring true for you?
Kim made the decision to bring in the reinforcements and get the individualized support she needed to break out of her struggle paradigm and turn her talent and wisdom into the wealth she believed was possible.
Here is a thumbnail sketch of how Kim broke free from her situation and moved into thriving.
Problem 1: Kim had been charging by the hour (and for way too little money). This was causing her to hit an income ceiling and had conditioned her clients to value her time instead of their results. Not good!
Solution: We immediately began transitioning her and her clients into packages to extract her from the dollars/hour model. Then she started pricing based on the value of her services and the results she helps her clients get, instead of her time.
Problem 2: Like lots of women entrepreneurs, Kim’s Money Mirror reflected that she had squishy boundaries that put her clients at the controls instead of her. The ripple effect was disempowerment with her schedule, her fees and her energy.
Solution: Kim took on a CEO mindset to regain control of her work time, energy and money boundaries. Together, we crafted scripts for handling various boundary-stretching situations with grace and compassion that also had the added effect of positioning her as a credible expert.
Problem 3: Niche dilution. Like many healers and esoteric practitioners, Kim’s service could help just about anybody, but without specializing, it made attracting clients willing to invest at the level her services were really worth difficult.
Solution: Kim chose to channel her intuitive talent into helping business women clear beliefs and habits that hold them back from their full potential — saving them time, energy and money. Will she work with others who come to her? Sure. But her focus and messaging is now clear and client-attractive.
(By the way, you don’t have to be married to your niche. You can switch niches after you’ve immersed yourself in one for a while.)
Results: Within just a few months she had her first $10k month ever! Her previous best-ever was $6k and she had been averaging around $4k before coaching with me. Since then she has re-tooled her program design allowing her to create multiple months at the $10k mark and her most recent one near $20k. That’s a massive return on her coaching investment and a huge boost to her income. On top of that, she has a sane schedule working just four days a week. Way to go, Kim!
What actions did Kim take to get those results? She followed through even when she was scared. She set bold money goals and went for them. She took responsibility for her results.
She also practiced staying passionately committed to what’s possible for her potential clients while staying detached from whether or not they chose to work with her. This takes a lot of faith and courage when you really need the money, but it freed her from feeling desperate to get the client and actually made her more magnetic.
What mindset did she adopt? That of a multiple 6-figure CEO believing that as she moves up, so do her clients. And they do.
Now, as an in-demand, internationally acclaimed intuitive business coach for women, she is preparing to up-level again to create leverage with group programs and exclusive “platinum-style” private coaching. (Pssst…you can check her out at KimDuggan.com. You might want to work with her now before her mentor tells her to raise her fees again!)
And you can do it, too!
Bonus Tip: You can’t get to where you want to go with the mindset that got you to where you are. You have to operate from a mindset beyond your current experience.
