Belinda Whelan is a Health Coach and Blogger from Healthy, Loving Life. She loves helping brilliant women create their perfect lives, by guiding them to discover their outright ultimate version of themselves.
I designed Belinda’s website in 2013 – taking her from an ugly IIN site to a beautiful website that reflected her personality. Over the last 12 months I have seen her grow from a bit of a beginner into a dedicated blogger, launching programs and blogging consistently. In fact, this year I now get new health coaches coming to me saying how much they admire Belinda and the way she has grown her business over the last 12 months.
Belinda is absolutely gorgeous – she is such a talent and has such a beautiful heart. I hope you enjoy her insights into how to maximise on those first few years of being in business for yourself. (And I SWEAR I didn’t ask her to mention her website so much!)
How long have you been in business?
Since August 2012
How much of your business is run online?
I would say I am now heading towards about 80 or 90 percent.
What do you know NOW that you wish you knew 12 months/2 years ago
I wish that I had known exactly how much more of an impact I can make online than in person and invested in my website sooner.
What are your top 3 tips for coaches who are just getting started in their business?
- Invest in a high quality website.
- Create online programs.
- Have a product partner to promote products to your followers.
What has been your biggest gamble?
Quitting my job to take my business full time. It was a risk, but it paid off big time. I was able to replace my income instantly with my new business and I haven’t looked back.
What has been your biggest mistake?
Not investing in a professional website from day 1.
What is the thing you love most about your job?
Changing people’s lives. I love getting positive feedback from my clients, both in person and remotely.
I am still blown away by the ripple effect my programs have on people living miles and miles away that I have never even met.
Thanks Belinda! Your on FIRE!
