This book is for you if…
- You’re brand new to business and are unsure where to start
- You’ve been trying to get your business off the ground for a while and are frustrated that your hard work isn’t yet paying off
- You’ve reached a decent level of success in your business but the client flow has stalled or is inconsistent
If you’re brand new, you’ll save yourself time, money and effort because you’re working with tried and tested principles from the start.
If you’ve been trying to get your business off the ground for a while, this book will be your trouble-shooting manual. You’ll find yourself saying, “No wonder that bit isn’t working; I was missing this foundational piece”, and you’ll have a clear sense of what to address next.
If you’re old hat at this business game, you’ve probably got a lot of the infrastructure in place. You’ve got the website and the mailing list, you’ve built a network and have client experience to reflect on. This book will bring together those threads and help you spring clean, revamp and re-energize each aspect of your business. You’ll find new ways to align what you already have in place.
Whatever stage you’re at, one thing is true: you want your venture to work. You want to know that the actions you take will lead to the results you want: more clients, more ease and a healthy income. You want to feel confident that your ideas are viable. You want to let go of the panic, the frustration, the unwelcome pattern of under-serving and under-earning. You want to be clear about what to do and how to do it.

- Sue Rasmussen, Unclutter – Organize – Transform,
Where was this book when I was first starting out? It really is, as the subtitle states, a step-by-step guide to getting your business of the ground. You make a direct connection with the reader throughout the book and I could hear and feel your happy, confident voice – as well as your passion – on every page.
The chapter recaps are brilliant, you help shift thinking around marketing and the Review and Celebrate section is a clever way to reinforce the teachings, which subverts the common response of getting to the end of a book and immediately putting it on the shelf rather than extracting the value.
You encourage the reader to actually use your book rather than merely read it. Excellent!

I have been following this book step by step and it’s working!
I was struggling with my niche – I had no clue! I was frustrated and had been procrastinating about putting myself into self-employment as I wanted to be sure who I was here for.
I have been immersed in your book since purchasing. I did both visualisations today gifted by you about my ideal client and who I am a Guardian Angel for (which I love as I am always working with Angels) and the clarity is unreal… I got a very clear image and guidance on who I am here to serve and how I am to do this. This was reconfirmed during the Angel Visualisation. It makes so much sense and I am now very excited. Thank you.

This book should be a graduation gift for any coach who completes certification and is ready to launch a satisfying biz. It’s a great “How To” with every module building on the next.
I wish I’d had it back in 2007; it would have saved me a lot of fist pounding and energy-sucking drama! I encourage others to buy this book now; it’s really, really good stuff.
- Jac McNeil, Certified Co-Active Coach, Nova Scotia,
Required reading for for those of us who want to build and sustain a profitable business whilst remaining true to our core values.
Accessible, rigorous and empowering; punctuated by real, relevant stories throughout.
This approach is deeply heart-centred, yet the book has the depth and focus we’ve come to expect from this inspiring coach and teacher. Corrina Gordon-Barnes guides us lovingly on this step-by-step journey in a smooth, digestible flow, creating a strong sense of momentum and achievement.
I particularly enjoyed the bonus audio linking in with the Tribe focus. These two visualisations added an extra layer of presence. Corrina’s natural warmth, grounded energy and delight at guiding us on this journey are tangible. I felt truly supported, safe and excited at the insights I received.
