The coaching industry is experiencing unprecedented growth, with a 60% increase from 2019 to 2023 and a projection of 145,500 active coaches in 2024. As this field expands, understanding how to stand out and grow your coaching business becomes more crucial than ever.

The 2023 International ADHD Conference highlighted a common concern among new coaches: what to do after receiving their ADHD Coaching certification. Many are seeking guidance on how to transition from being certified to running a successful coaching practice.

Drawing from over 20 years of experience in administration and business development, including growing my own ADHD Coaching company over the past six years, I’d like to share some key elements that are essential for the growth and sustainability of your coaching business.

Key Elements for Growing Your Coaching Business

    1. Identify Your Niche: Specializing in a specific area within ADHD coaching can help you attract a dedicated client base.

    2. Develop a Unique Value Proposition: Clearly articulate what sets you apart from other coaches in your field.
