Should I use Squarespace or Wordpress to build my Health Coaching website?

Amanda_Jane_Daley_Business_Mentor_Squarespace_Wordpress_Health_Coaching_Website.png
 

Hey beauty!

I’ve taken a mid-afternoon nap almost every day of working for myself for six years. (Seriously, I’m all about self-care and slowness over here.)

And in my Advertising days I was an Art Director… which means I have a really keen eye for design and visuals, and I LOVE making websites.

As in, I create them in my spare time kinda love. It is so much fun to me!

Have you thinking about building your health coaching website, but aren’t sure what platform to use?

You’re not alone! A lot of women in the UPswing Mastermind start their website-creation process uncertain, and ask me which I recommend: Wordpress or Squarespace.

In my eyes it’s a no-brainer! 💻


So, in today’s video I’m going to share…

✅ Which platform I currently use for my websites...
✅ Why I wholeheartedly recommend Squarespace for new wellness entrepreneurs…
✅ Why I think it’s WAY safer, cheaper, better and easier than Wordpress...

Hit play and watch it now

 
 

I hope this cuts through the confusion, and gets you excited to build your site! (And ensures you don’t make an expensive mistake you’ll regret later — by choosing the wrong platform. 😘)

Love,

Amanda xx

[Jennie’s story Part 3] Working 1.5 days per week while earning $5k? It’s possible.

[Jennie's Story Part 3].png
 

By now I’m sure you feel like you’re Jennie’s best friend. So do I! She's taken us on a bit of a rollercoaster ride, hasn't she? The fact she’s allowing me to tell her story so you can really learn from her journey shows how deeply Jennie cares about transforming people's lives.

Previously we spoke about how Jennie grew her business too quickly by making the biggest mistake I see all health coaches make, and that’s not packaging up your services.

Selling one off sessions and working for an hourly rate is a one way ticket to Brokeville.

Jennie had sacrificed her health for her business because she didn’t have the foundations of a package setup that would allow her to run a business filled with health and wealth.

Jennie thought in order to become wealthy, she needed to sacrifice her health, but that’s the furthest from the truth, and I can promise you there’s a better way.

You don’t have to make a choice between whether you want to be wealthy or whether you want to be healthy, in fact, wealth is important because it opens you up to a whole new level of health - something I’m so passionate about teaching to all of my clients.

When Jennie started creating her packages, she put a lot of thought behind how they were best going to serve the lifestyle she wanted to live.


Key Lessons For Health Coaches:

 When designing your package, you need to ensure you take into account how you truly want to design your own life.

 Think about what your non negotiables are and start with them in mind, instead of creating a package that your life needs to fit around.

 For example, if you need to pick the kids up at 3pm from school, you last coaching session for the day is at 1.45 - 2.45pm.

Your desires must be at the forefront of your business in order to run a successful health coaching business that supports you living your happiest, healthiest and most aligned life.


 Anything that does not fit within your non negotiables you MUST learn to say no to.

When Jennie created a health coaching package that worked in with her busy life, she started getting more enquiries, and before she knew it she had her best month, working only the 1.5 days per week she desired.

Not only did her business packages bridge the gap between her health and her wealth, but in the process of redesigning her packages, Jennie came up with a solution that would ensure her clients got better results than ever before. This was something she had secretly been worried about with her initial clients.

Now, Jennie’s purposeful packages are a win-win for all.

[Jennie’s Story Part 2] Crack the $5k mark as a coach without burning out

[Jennie's Story Part 2].png
 

Remember Jennie, our lovely health coach who grew her business too quickly by making the biggest mistake I see all health coaches make? If you didn’t get a chance to read Jennie’s story, see my previous post with the title 'Jennie's Story Part 1: How Jennie overcame every obstacle in her Health Coaching Business'

In my next post I'm going to share with you just how Jennie turned her business around and is now able to work 1.5 days per week while earning $5k per month (and counting).

A few of you have reached out to share your similar experiences, and some of you have let me know you’re starting out and are worried about making the same mistake as Jennie, so I’m going to share with you what that biggest mistake is, so we can all avoid it once and for all.

You’re going to be surprised by this, but here it is.

The number one business killer of health coaches, and the biggest mistake Jennie made, was saying yes to everyone who needed her help, instead of creating a package that could best help her IDEAL client only. And yes, that meant saying no to some potential clients too!



Crack-the-5k-mark.png


You see, Jennie worked with clients who approached her for single sessions on whatever THEY thought they needed, whenever they pleased.

Now apart from the stress of having single and inconsistent clients filling your books every week, do you think it’s even possible to show them the true powerful transformative nature of health coaching in 1 hour or whenever they feel like it?

Jennie was saying yes to people who were not her ideal clients. She had lots of single session clients who paid her an hourly rate, and soon enough, all those hours added up, AND progress was frustratingly slow for many of them because there was no consistency or structure.

Even though she was selling sessions and working with clients, her health coaching business was robbing her of the life she wanted to live. Kind of like how working her corporate job did.


Key Lessons For Health Coaches: 

Selling single sessions (or allowing your client to dictate how many they need) might seem like a good idea at the beginning of your health coaching business, but it will set you back, as you’ll be trapped trading hours for money, feel trapped by your business, and never feel like you’re making enough for the hours you have to work.

When you work with clients who aren’t your ideal clients, it ends up feeling like you’re back working in the corporate world, and you’ll start to resent your health coaching business - which is something we most definitely want to avoid!



When Jennie learnt this key lesson, she was able to turn her business around to get the freedom based lifestyle of working 1.5 days per week, coaching dream clients she loved, and making $5k per month and counting.  

In my next post, I’ll cover what Jennie did to get the results she wanted.
