Client Success Story: Justin Clay
Justin is an iPEC certified coach specializing in:
Professionals who work with at risk youth (probation officers, social workers, lawyers) and
Professionals in the arts who wrestle with mid-life issues
Why at risk youth professionals?
He’s also been a probation officer for the past twenty years in Los Angeles. “Too many of those helping delinquent youth eventually burn out. Coaching can help rejuvenate them.”
Before working with Applied Ideals, I was feeling "stuck" and did not have a clear idea about how to grow my coaching business. I wondered if I’d get a return on my investment in Applied Ideals coaching.
Immediately after signing up, though, I felt excited, nervous, and hopeful about the future. After a few sessions I felt confident that I would be able to make progress.
What I like best is that Daniel leads by example. He is passionate about his work, and his commitment to his clients is truly inspiring.
He's always in tune with how to provide the most value to me based on the situation that I am in. His organization and attention to detail are models for me.
I also very much appreciate his mission to better humanity through conscious social enterprise.
The biggest insight I've had has to do with sales. Daniel taught me a sales philosophy and provided a specific script for me to use. He also coached me throughout the process.
That structure has been a wonderful blueprint.
It's helped me dive deeper into the needs of my prospects, helped me understand my value and worth, and also provided a generalized structure to facilitate all types of other conversations.
I’ve gotten a ton.
As far as sales, I created 13 sales appointments with just one particular challenge Daniel had me do. I became much more comfortable with the way I sell my services as well.
I recouped my initial investment with just my first new client.
I have a greater sense of professionalism, am more organized, and am more strategic about how I grow my business.
Daniel introduced me to many of his contacts, greatly increasing my network of colleagues. I've taken in new essential reading. I've also dialed in my morning routine in a way that helps catapult my day.
Our regular coaching calls over the past year have been a pillar.
Daniel helped me to find my professional voice in coaching [an emerging and amorphous discipline] as well as my voice in the marketplace.
The most important thing people should know about Applied Ideals coaching? That you will be challenged and inspired to grow in the ways that are most important to you.
And do I recommend Applied Ideals? Absolutely. Anyone who is involved in the creation and implementation of their own business will benefit greatly from Daniel's genuine care for the betterment of all people.
