Celebrating 5 Years of The Coaching Tools Company.com

5 YRS CELEBWow - we made it! To 5 years! The Coaching Tools Company.com is now officially 5 years old.

I want to say a HUGE "Thank-YOU" for all your support, encouragement, sharing, downloading our free tools and  - and of course for buying our products! We couldn't do this without you.

Some 5 Year Business Facts: Did you know that The Coaching Tools Company.com now offers over 100 coaching tools, including 27 completely free coaching tools and templates. We add new content on a regular basis and our blog has over 140 articles geared specifically towards coaches with over 6,250 readers from 124 different countries around the world who read "The Launch Pad", our weekly newsletter.

According to Alexa.com, The Coaching Tools Company.com website ranks 221,228 in the world, at 60,579 in the US, 77,747 in the UK and 29,500 in Australia. Wow! And although we didn't create our Facebook Page until 2010 (I'm an old-fashioned kinda gal!), we now with over 1600 followers. Did you know we also have a LinkedIn Discussion Group: Everything Coaching & Tools!

Phew! And all this started from a big fat ZERO!

It has been a LOT of work. Many, many hours of hard slog. Coaching, running workshops, reading, writing, listening, creating, learning about technology, marketing online, websites, social media and more...

Oh yes, and did I mention learning about myself? Running your own business really is an incredibly personal experience. How do you manage stress? What do you value about yourself? What are you willing to do and not do to market yourself? What do I value in the world? Do I believe in myself and what I have to offer ENOUGH to keep going? Who am I? What really matters?

It has been a long 5 years. Perseverance and determination are essential. It's really a hero's journey, complete with leaving the 'ordinary world' (our jobs and lives before coaching), being tested, going through ordeals, receiving rewards, experiencing shapeshifting relationships (those who seem helpful, then let us down OR seem difficult and then help us), allies, mentors and more. I think there's a whole other article here!

I am proud that we've made it to year FIVE. We stuck it out, and here we are - going from strength to strength. We have plans, oh so many plans. A separate Spanish site. Selling complete 'workshops' with everything you need to run a workshop (SUCH a great way to get clients!). We also want to start having monthly hangouts with experts on specific topics to help you, create more products to help you grow your businesses (and not just your clients!). And MORE! (And if you have any suggestions - just email us, we'd love to hear from you).

And we want this for you. To make it to YOUR year five - and beyond. To be excited for your future. To keep going through the challenges and come out the other side stronger, better and contributing to the world in a personal and meaningful way.

3 Month Business Planning & Actioning ToolSo, one of the things that really helped us succeed - and keep going - was regular planning. Setting business goals regularly and action-planning that moved us toward our key goals for the next 3 months. I know that sometimes business planning seems overwhelming and hugely time-consuming - but it needn't be. If you set aside an hour or so every 3 months to think about the next 3 months, this will give you a 'GPS' for your business to focus in on, and grow.

Break down your business goals and marketing into achievable goals and steps - that work for YOU.
