26 Jul How Nate Birner Won His Confidence, His Financial Freedom … and 25 New Clients
This is the story of how Nate Birner accomplished what so many trainers can only dream of…
…finding a way out of the dollars-for-hours trap that enslaves them.
For Nate, it’s already a case of mission accomplished.
He works less and earns more.
Once he enrolled in Bach Business Coaching, it didn’t take long for Nate to achieve the success that had previously eluded him.
“Within a couple of weeks, I had my first new client,” says the 35-year-old Austin, Texas coach.
“Bach Business Coaching gave me the confidence and strategies to start interacting with people more. It helped me to add three to four clients per month.”
Nate went from 5 to 29 clients in five months and is well on his way to $75,000 a year working just 20 hours a week and chasing his dream of becoming a firefighter.
“I will be going to the fire department academy in January 2022, so I wanted meaningful progress in reducing my hours worked during the week,” says Nate.
Nate signed up for Bach Business Coaching at the height of the pandemic.
“Many people had their routines disrupted and needed fitness/accountability more than ever. Some gyms were closed. People, in general, were more receptive to the idea of online coaching,” says Nate.
“But I didn’t have any online clients! So, Eric and Daniel helped me connect with these people to communicate my value more effectively. It didn’t take long for me to sign up 10 online clients to generate $2,400 a month in new revenue.”
Nate found he didn’t have to choose between in-person and online clients.
He could have the best of both worlds.
Nate teaches small group classes out of his garage, charging $300 a month. This generates $2,100 a month on top of his online income.
“In-person clients are welcome to three classes per week. One each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. If they miss a session, I will fit them into another class time if available.”
“But I don’t guarantee my ability to do this. If we can’t make something work, they have access to the day’s workout via an app for them to complete on their own.”
“Same goes if clients are traveling or on vacation. In my garage, I can only see three people at a time, which pays me approximately $75 a class whether I see anyone or not.”
“I have 19 clients who participate in this model. It provides consistent income, a 15-to-20-hour workweek instead of working 40 to 50 hours a week because I don’t have to hustle to keep a full schedule and track down clients or no shows,” says Nate.
Nate signed up with Bach Business Coaching after following Eric’s writing for years online. “I was ready to buy when I scheduled the first call,” says Nate.
“I didn’t feel like I was going to get crammed into a box. I didn’t want to get plugged into a system. I wanted someone to help me grow MY business. That’s what Eric was selling, and that’s what I got.”
Here are the top three things Bach Business Coaching taught Nate on how to be a successful online coach:
(1) Be proactive about starting conversations
(2) Write effective sales copy
(3) Systemize everything you can
Nate recommends Bach Business Coaching for “anyone trying to get started coaching online, or anyone who feels stuck trying to grow online.”
“No matter where you are in your coaching career, Eric and Daniel give you the tools to take things to the next level”
“Eric provides many of the exact systems and templates he uses in his own coaching business for you to have a starting point.”
“The copywriting skills you learn from Daniel will pay you back exponentially over time and could be applied to any industry if your interests change. Sales, social media, systems … it’s all there.”
“I wish I had signed up years ago!”
