Thank you for purchasing the online teacher’s starter kit. I’m so excited that you’ve taken such a bold step towards getting your business up an running.
Let’s get started, shall we?
Step One: Let’s get to work on getting your ideal student 1000% clearly defined.
This step is absolutely VITAL if you want to have sustainable success in your online teaching business – and I’m sure you want that, right?
Here’s the deal, plain and simple: if you don’t have a specific student in mind – your ideal student – you won’t know where to find them, and you will have an even more difficult time marketing your services to them!
That combination = disaster….confusion…and burnout!
Here’s your homework while we set up our first Skype coaching session: Think about who you LOVE to work with, and write a few lines about them.
Can you answer these questions:
- What do the students you love to work with do? (Are they employed? Are they students? Kids?)
- About how old are they?
- Can you list 5 to 10 pain points or challenges you KNOW they have as English learners?
- Confirm that this ‘ideal student’ is REALLY ideal: how do they make you feel when you work with them? Do you feel like you have more energy, that you can’t wait to work with them again, that you feel like you are remaining in your ‘strengths’ NOT in areas of weakness.
We’ll be talking about these points – and others – as we in our first session.
