Welcome to the “How to Become a Sex Coach” series! In these essays, you’ll learn how the Certified Sex Coach™ training offered through Sex Coach U prepares you to become a competent, knowledgeable, ethical, and financially successful sex coach.
Welcome back! This is part 3 of our series called, “How to Become a Sex Coach.” So far, you’ve learned that you need clinical sexology knowledge (read Part 1 here) and coactive coaching skills (read Part 2 here) to become an effective and competent sex coach.
Unfortunately, getting top-notch training in coaching skills and clinical sexology isn’t enough. You also have to know how to structure your business and market it well in order to launch a successful sex coaching practice.
Maybe you’ve never worked for yourself—do you know what needs to go on your website? Do you understand how to identify your ideal client and how to reach them? Do you know how to address your money hang-ups so you don’t sabotage yourself financially?
Perhaps you’re already a freelancer, independent contractor, or small business owner. You’ve figured out how to motivate yourself, and you may understand the basics of setting up and promoting your business or services. But how successful are you? Have you reached your financial goals? Are you able to sustain your minimum income needs without working yourself into the ground?
And do you know how to handle the issues associated with being a sexuality professional on the Internet in our sex-negative and censor-happy world? For instance, how can you avoid being censored or shut down for including the word “sex” in your posts or ads on Facebook? And how do you pivot if you are eventually shut down?
Pro-Tip: Start building your email list using a trusted mailing list or newsletter provider (not just a list of names in your contact list) AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Even if you’re not ready to start sending emails to that list, getting people’s email addresses and their permission to send them messages means that even if Facebook or one of the other social media networks shuts you down, you won’t lose all your warm prospects. You OWN your mailing list. Facebook owns your list of friends. Read more here.
At Sex Coach U, we go even deeper. We bridge the gap that’s often missing in other sex coach training programs (and even expensive Master’s degree programs in therapy and related fields) through our Business of Sex Coaching (BOSC) program.
BOSC is part of our Core Certified Sex Coach™ training—designed BY sex coaches FOR sex coaches—to empower you to start your new career off on the right foot.
Imagine a future as a highly-trained, competent, and SUCCESSFUL sex coach. A future where all of your money woes go away, where your ideal clients have no problem finding you, where you get to experience the freedom of being your own boss. A future where you can set your own hours, work from anywhere (the comfort of your own home, the beach, a mountain cabin), and take the time off you need to enjoy life or tend to other obligations.
Instead of spending countless hours trying to figure out how to build a business from the ground up or how to make your existing business more profitable, you’ll learn the pathway to making your new career a dazzling success. Through the Business of Sex Coaching, we teach you what you need to know to create and launch a successful sex coaching practice immediately after graduation.
Watch Dr. Patti’s introduction to this program:
Instead of getting stuck figuring out how to blend your business training with your sex coach training, you can take advantage of an express roadmap to success as a sexuality professional.
