150+ Mistakes Coaches Make
10 Steps For Achieving Anything You Want & On Your Own Terms
by Bart Smith
Have you ever seen a book written for coaches that specifically highlighted the business related mistakes, education/training mistakes, personal-related mistakes, coaching/client mistakes, marketing/promotion mistakes, website-related mistakes, communication mistakes, and money-making mistakes coaches could make in their coaching business practice? I’ve never seen one, so I wrote one.
I wrote it while I was writing Rich Coach Broke Coach. I specifically remember generating a huge list of different kinds of mistakes coaches make. It wasn’t until I had accumulated over 150 mistakes that I thought coaches should know about these. Well, here it is … 150+ Mistakes Coaches Make!
150+ coaching mistakes inside one book? Wow, that’s A LOT!
This one-of-a-kind book highlights in detail the very mistakes so many coaches make in their coaching business that cost them time, money, credibility and clients! Don’t you make these same mistakes and experience the same. Instead, read it (or listen to the audio book) and prosper as a “RICH COACH!”

Even though I wrote the book, when I read over the contents of 150+ Mistakes Coaches Make, I too am reminded, “Oh yeah, I need to do that or not do that or get x-going …” Seriously folks, this book is a must-read for every coach or coach in training. It will not fail you.
BUSINESS RELATED MISTAKES
Coaches who make these “business” mistakes are sure find themselves losing time, money, credibility and more.
EDUCATION & TRAINING MISTAKES
I outline a number of education and training mistakes or things you don’t do to help boost your coaching business.
PERSONAL RELATED MISTAKES
There are things we do as coaches that don’t always work well or pay off in certain ways. I elaborate on that in this section.
No coach wants to make mistakes with their clients, let alone these mistakes as outlined in the book.
MARKETING & PROMOTION MISTAKES
Every coach is guilty of some kind of marketing mistake, as in, what you’re NOT doing to promote your business more.
WEBSITE RELATED MISTAKES
If you have a website, then here are a number of mistakes you could be making that are preventing you from success.
What are you saying to your clients? What are you NOT saying to clients? These mistakes can cost you too.
Here’s a real kicker, money-making mistakes coaches are making are costing them lost income. Not good.

“Bart’s book, 150+ Mistakes Coaches Make, really made me see where my coaching business was failing, or at least losing money. I don’t like to use that word, but in certain ways, I was not performing up to my best with my clients or myself as a coach for them. His education and training mistakes hit home with me so I went and got certified in my area of expertise which gave my income and reputation among clients a huge boost. His communication mistakes warn against things you should and shouldn’t say to clients, which in the end, can cost you dearly. Thanks, Bart, for showing me the light.” — Peter F., Real Estate Consultant, Glendale, CA
“I am so glad I got this book. Bart does a great job at pointing out the obvious and in so many instances. After reading the entire book in a couple days, I was able to clean up, consolidate and relaunch my real estate coaching and training programs with the confidence I wouldn’t be making the mistakes Bart outlines in his book. Thank you, Bart. Oh, and my bank account thanks you too!” — Alicia W., Texas (Real Estate Coach/Trainer)
When I was writing RICH COACH BROKE COACH, one thing that kept coming to mind was the MISTAKES coaches make in their coaching business. So, I started accumulating a list of those mistakes which eventually totaled 150+. Wow, coaches were susceptible to making that many mistakes? That’s got to be shared!
Why be concerned about making mistakes? Isn’t failure feedback? Sure it is, but for coaches, minimizing the amount of times we fail or make mistakes will help keep us on track with our own goals as coaches, keep clients and prospects flowing in, keep clients moving towards their own goals with our help, and above all, keep our coaching businesses operating at optimal capacity.
Whether you are a seasoned coach or new to coaching, my hope is that you will learn something new (or be reminded about something to watch out for) from this book to help you be even more successful in your coaching business pursuits!
