When I was young (in the 70s and 80s), I loved creating games on my Commodore 64. I was pretty good at it too. But after a chat with my guidance counselor, I chose to pursue a high-paying career in math.

11 years later, I found myself working in insurance and lacking passion. So, I left the corporate life back in 2001 to pursue web design and get back to my first love.

It was great and all to be gung-ho on my computer, learning, creating, and building websites. However, income was low and that made things tough.

So, to earn more while also having more fun, I tweaked my business by shifting from a general web designer to a specialist in websites for coaches.

While it was a little scary to make this shift, this move enabled me to work with way-cool people, market more efficiently, and deliver much more value.  That helped solve the money matters.

In making smart biz moves for myself, and doing the same for many clients, I’ve been able to help them get online quickly, with a good site and strategy for growing their business – which for many coaches means more clients.

Maybe you’ll be part of the story. If you need website help,  Take the next step and share your journey with me.

World Wide Web Designing

The flexibility to work at your creatively best hours and support your chosen lifestyle is amazing. Here are a handful of places I went for extended trips with my laptop.

One Tree Hill with Greg Joynt, Business Coach, Auckland New Zealanda

Straight from the airport, high on excitement, Greg and I head to One Tree Hill for a view of Auckland, New Zealand.

Overdue down time, beach, pools, fresh air and Greek family fun. Here is the Acropolis in Athens Greece.

In Buenos Aires, days were filled with Co-working, meat, and Tango. This was my first back to back summer experience.

L'Etoile de Montmartre

L’Etoile de Montmartre, The Star, is a cute little café and the Parisian branch office for my first work-abroad stint of six weeks.

In the sunset-blessed beach town of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, I failed to convince this young-preneur to sell his springy animals online.

So, what’s your story? What’s your next level? What would be great?

    Hi Kenn,
    I’m following you for a while. Today I have burning question and I wonder whether you would help me with an answer.
    I’m an adhd coach in germany. When you look on my website you don’t see any blog or something like that. No content marketing. I don’t have anything what man could really call a funnel. But I want to. I will set up my website from the scratch over christmas (I hope so) and I want to start blogging with tipps for adhd people. I have a video course. I want to have leadmagnets and freemiums and behind that funnels that lead to my coaching.

    BUT: I’m insecure. A coach of mine (she doesn’t know anything about online-marketing, but she is a entrepreneur’s coach) asked me: don’t you decrease the number of coaching clients when you give away your knowledge in video courses? Then the people who hired you by now because they didn’t get any other help won’t have to hire you anymore.

    And she made me insecure.

    I would appreciate your help and your answer, if possible.

    Thanks a lot

    Birgit

    Hi Birgit … you’re pretty courageous in posting your insecurity online. Nice work.

    Insecure? Or do you mean inexperienced? Unsure? A little afraid of the unknown?

    Those are good questions, and I do think it’s important to reach out to people with valuable info but also offer them things they can buy – that is more help.

    And yes, marketing is something to learn as some of it is counter intuitive but helpful to earn money while providing value – and there are people who will happily pay for you to help them overcome challenges.

    You are asking good questions, and I hope taking plenty of action, and I hope getting support – a safe place to take action, in spite of your insecurities. A place where you can grow. A place where others are also insecure or have overcome some of those insecurities because it’s motivating and fun not to be alone.

    I see coaches take action while being a little insecure and then the insecurity sorta just goes away.

    Thanks for commenting. Thank yourself for being brave to speak up here, on my site.

    And I appreciate your trust in me as a source of help for your question.
