Confused on What Course to Take or Coach to Hire?

Hi loves!
.
Have you ever felt confused around what course to take or coach to hire?
.
I get it.
.
As someone who has owned a company that creates and sells digital courses for a number of years now (I created my first course in 2014) as well as someone who has facilitated coaching and counseling for even longer (I saw my first client in 2011), I am familiar with the hesitations and fears that come up when choosing to hire a coach or enroll in a course.
.
Hell, I have made both types of investments personally, a number of times.
.
Here is what I know:
.
1. It’s not about checking boxes.
.
It’s normal to get caught up in the idea that coaching is about X number of sessions that are X minutes long. Or that courses are about X number of modules with X number of hours of content.
.
But that’s not really the thing.
.
We think we have to use every single session and complete each and every module to have gotten the most out of it and done what we feel we are ‘supposed’ to do.
.
The above mindset, kind of misses the whole point.
.
We aren’t in school anymore. We are adults.
.
When it comes to the coaches and mentors we hire and investments we make, it’s not about checking boxes.
.
2. It’s about trusting yourself on your journey.
.
It’s about how we show up, what we decide, what we bring, what we extract, and how much we trust ourselves in anyprocess we choose to engage in.
.
Meaning, the transformation doesn’t come because you pressed play the right number of times on a video or scheduled the maximum number of calls.
.
The transformation comes because you are someone who has chosen to be on a journey of transformation. Period.
.
And, from there, you allow yourself to be led to the programs and humans that will support you on your journey.
.
Transformation after transformation will come endlessly and on repeat — resulting in the love, money, body, belonging, etc you desire — when you decide that’s how things work for you.
.
It’s about the path you have put yourself on.
.
As my friend Elissa says, “We are on a waterslide of breakthrough and abundance.”
.
Growth and transformation are just how we live, how we are, and how we do things.
.
The momentum adds, up and breakthrough upon breakthrough into new levels of love, wealth and whatever you desire are inevitable.
.
You will be continually allowing yourself to move to the next level, to pivot through to the otherside, and step into what you want.
.
I’ll say it this way: Your success is not dependent on anything or anyone. Your success is dependent on you. AND you get to pick which people and things are in your support system as you go.
.
Here is how this looks in my business…
.
Clients: My clients often do not use their sessions. My private clients have a weekly call to use as needed and my mastermind clients have a monthly call to use as needed, but I rarely hear from anyone.
.
Why? Because The ideas of ‘getting your money’s worth’ or ‘missing out’ or ‘doing it wrong’ are restricting ideas that each of them let go of a long time ago.
.

Both private and mastermind clients have access to my entire body of work. They refer to various content in various programs as needed.

.
They have access to me through Voxer chat. (My private clients have individual chats and my mastermind has a group chat.) So, we chat back and forth as needed, but usually, I don’t even hear from them that often there.
.
But more important than any of that…

These women are connected to me energetically. They have internal access to how I think, how I do things, and how I make all of this work. It feels as though we have a cord connecting us. In our energetic agreement of sorts, they will ‘get it’ more and more all of the time. While I am happy to talk to them as needed, I trust them to trust themselves on their journey and to reach out as needed.

.
Bottom line, they all trust themselves. I empower them to trust themselves.
.
Courses: I feel a similar way about my courses. I do not believe that a certain number of modules have to be completed in a certain order. I do not believe you failed if you missed a video or didn’t vibe with a certain journal prompt.
.
I trust you to enroll as you are led, engage in the process as you feel called, marinate in the energy of it all as long as you need to, and come back to any part you desire, at any point in the future, as that feels good to you.
.
I trust you to be on your journey. I trust the energy, information and transformational process contained in my courses to support you as needed.
.
3. It’s about being led.
.
About seven months ago, I was on the way to dinner, when I noticed a DM come through about one of my courses. It was a good question, but it was also a question the team and I had answered many, many times in other DMs and emails. It was also answered in various social media posts and on the FAQ section of the enrollment page.
.
I remember thinking to myself, this isn’t about this question. It isn’t even about wanting to touch base with someone on the team to feel safe enrolling. This is about self-trust. This is about taking action as you are led. This is about knowing you can’t f* it up. This is about being sure that you are getting better as you go. And allowing yourself to engage in any program or course that feels good and right to you.
.
Since I had signed up for two different programs that month that I felt led to, I decided to riff on the topic a little bit right then and there.
.
That video is available for you below.
.
I want you to know that, with both of these programs, I did not finish the modules. I did not make it to all the live calls. I did not do every bit of homework.
.
I listened to the pre-work and watched, I think, two videos from one of the programs. And did a couple sets of journal prompts from the other program.
.
And that was it. And that was all I needed. I took what I learned from these women. I integrated and implemented the content. I trusted myself. I kept going.
.
I integrated the information and energy into my actions and understanding. And that was enough.
.
4. It’s about knowing you can’t f* it up.
.
I have not thought about it since and it would NEVER occur to me to think that I did it wrong, did not complete it or failed at it in some way.
.
I utilized the program as I was led and forgot all about it. And if I wanted to revisit it later, I would.
.
No big deal.
.
To be clear: I have taken courses that I felt were kind of boring or not that useful. I have hired coaches (more than once) that I didn’t finish my time with. I actually worked with one woman who I consider to be a complete disaster of a human. (Lord, help me.)
.
I learned countless lessons, embodied various energies, implemented new ways of doing things, and allowed each thing to be part of my journey.
.

I don’t consider these things a waste. I know they were each what they needed to be. I got out of each situation what I needed to. I moved on when I was ready.

.
This type of thinking is why for both my private clients and mastermind, there are no time commitments. People join as they are ready and leave when they are complete. Some people stay a couple of months. Most people stay for years.
.
And everyone trusts themselves.
.
No ridiculous pressure, no fear of f*ing it up, and no fixation around failing required.
