150+ Mistakes Coaches Make

STOP Wasting Your Time, Losing Money & Maximize Your True Potential As A Personal / Business Coach

by Bart Smith

What do they say about mistakes? They happen, right? Well, for coaches, we can’t let too many mistakes happen or else we’ll be out of business before we could say, “Whoops, I won’t do that again.”

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.

Now, if you don’t watch out for them, well, you know what can happen: CONSEQUENCES = OUCH!


So, the following common mistakes happen to all coaches at one time or another. As coaches, we must constantly be on the lookout for some of these mistakes and do our best to try to avoid them.

PART 1: Business Mistakes

PART 2: Coaching/Client Mistakes

PART 3: Communication Mistakes

PART 4: Education & Training Mistakes

PART 5: Marketing Mistakes

PART 6: Mindset Mistakes

PART 7: Money-Making Mistakes

PART 8: Personal Mistakes

PART 9: Website Related Mistakes
