2020 Day 21: Surfing Universes – Life Coach – 60 Needs that Healers Have

I’m on the bus traveling Hwy 17 to Santa Cruz. It’s been a day of physical traveling and I have found that when physically traveling, it’s also easier for me to travel dimensionally to different universes. Over the last few days I have noticed a nearby universe in which I’m a life coach. One event that I noticed was I reached out randomly to someone who had sent me a marketing email and asked him if he wanted to do a trade. During the exchange, he asked me to send him a link to my offerings and I realized that I didn’t have such a link. That was my first feeling of the universe where I’m a life coach. I then made a decision to start creating such a website and tried to feel into what my offerings were. I signed up with bluehost.com to host my new WordPress website. As I tried to imagine what was on this website, I got a call from a friend who wanted help listening to their phone marketing pitch. For an hour and a half, I acted as a life coach for my friend. During the call, I even had the chance to work on my phone pitch as I gave her an example of how I would have done the call.

Earlier when I was on the plane flying from Austin, I found myself journalling about these events and I began planning my life coaching business. My target market for life coaching is anyone in a healing profession. I brainstormed a list of common needs that these people have:
