You can build a Better, Bolder, Braver coaching business

Most coaching businesses are being run by just one person. We know how hard it can be to try to do everything yourself – you don’t have time to be a great coach and become a marketing expert!

Without a ‘plan’ to follow and someone to hold you accountable, it’s hard to stay on track. It’s hard to know what will work, what won’t, and what to do next. You’re busy with clients, working too many hours and yet you sometimes feel like you’re not ‘growing’.

Or, perhaps you feel like you might be able to charge more, meaning you can create more balance in your life and have more time for self-practice or development, but you don’t know where to start.

We hear this from so many coaches.

Help me I’m …

  • Working too many hours, and not earning enough

  • Unable to reach the clients I really want to work with

  • Struggling to find my niche (or work out why I need one)

  • Not feeling confident about putting myself out there

  • Rarely filling the places on my coaching programme

  • Panic pricing to get ‘bums on seats’

You don’t need to struggle any more

The Braver Way Programme

We’ve built The Braver Way Programme based on many years of marketing things. We’ve worked with loads of brands, organisations and individuals, helping people talk to people, be creative with money and think differently about the limitations of time.

Our new programme is designed specifically for coaches who feel they are ‘at capacity’ or those feeling stuck by, disillusioned or fed up with marketing. It will empower you to reclaim control of your vision and be energised in your pitch.

In this 20 week programme, we will help you to transform the 6 key areas of your coaching business to attract Better clients, build a Bolder offer and be Braver with prices, planning and purpose. We support you all the way with group sessions and 1-2-1 implementation sessions. You’ll launch, build or refresh your business, create a clear plan to move forward but most importantly will grow as a person. You’ll work on your confidence, your focus, your pride, your sense of humour and your ability to evaluate what you offer and the impact you make.

Simon Batchelar - Better Bolder Braver

Simon Batchelar

I’m Simon Batchelar. I’ve run an online marketing agency for over 18 years, and in that time I transformed the marketing of over 400 small businesses. My longest-standing client tripled their turnover to over £5m, and I’ve taken another from starting their blog in a coffee shop to talking on the TED stage. My vision is to build a community of hundreds of coaches who want to work on themselves, their business and their marketing; and in doing so make more impact with the important work they deliver.

Frances Khalastchi - Better Bolder Braver

Frances Khalastchi

I’m Frances Khalastchi. I have 20 years’ experience in Corporate, Third Sector, Startup and Government communications. I’ve created brand partnerships, launched products, designed websites and trained several lovely people along the way. Now, I help coaches improve their relationship with marketing. My clients face the feelings that marketing brings up and then capitalise on self-awareness to feel more confident about putting themselves out there.

We have combined our experience, knowledge and passion to change the way coaches think and feel about marketing by creating the Better Bolder Braver Accelerator. We’re on hand in the Better Bolder Braver Community to share our knowledge and ensure you get the results you deserve, but more importantly a feeling of satisfaction, from your marketing.

It’s really easy to get started, and just as easy to keep going…

Our Vision

Frances and Simon standing on the rooftop

At Better Bolder Braver, we work with people like us, who want to be ‘successful’… meaning to be proud of what they do, be paid fairly, and manage their time effectively so they can deliver an important service and also have the lifestyle they want.

We know that to be successful, you need to attract clients you will enjoy working with, who will pay the price you attach to your work because they see value in working with you. We suspect you are here because you don’t know how to do that, where to start, or feel like you’re not ‘in control’ of your business. We also suspect you can charge more for the value you deliver and the impact you make. Well, we are glad you’re found us – we will help you with it all.

Come along for the ride… Join Better Bolder Braver and enjoy being part of the community and working through our step by step process along with others to build a better, more comfortable coaching business.

Stop overworking, undercharging and doing it alone.
