"human Performance Coach" For College Students - Viable?
Hey everybody, I'm currently going through Ramit Sethi's Earn1k course, on a quest to earn income while I'm finishing college. At the moment I'm reading his "Finding Your First Profitable Idea" book.
Target demo: Other students at my university, perhaps just local people in general (20-30 somethings) looking to get over the hump and take charge of their life.
Model: 1-on-1 consultations, charge by the half hour, hour, etc. (That part isn't important yet)
Proposed service: "Human Performance Coach"
Coaching students, student-athletes and anybody looking to optimize their performance and fulfill the potential they've failed to fulfill up until now. Get these people out of their rut. Use methods that they're not going to hear about from campus resources like the free counseling appointments that hurry you out and give you shitty generic advice and don't push you or hold you accountable. Turning them onto things like nootropics, brainwave entrainment recordings, essential reading. (I provide the latter two, the first I explain to them what they are, what they do, why they should take them, and where to get them reliably and cost-effectively). Turn them onto the BP lifestyle. Train the timid and awkward to have confidence speaking in class, being assertive in life, making friends out of strangers. Most importantly, be the guy who will SHIFT THEIR MINDSET from feeling helpless, nonplussed or apathetic into living with purpose and crushing it in the classroom, on the basketball court or out on the street. Doing the research and legwork, distilling it into applicable stuff so they can focus on being present.
Just brainstorming things I would tell these clients on a 1st consultation...
"The people with the licenses... a) charge more than I do, are working off dated studies and methods that have to go through 30 years of testing before they're recommendable, c) are already jaded as shit."
"I'll tell you what they won't, I'll show you what they don't know exists, and I'll pound it into you and hold you accountable. Results are all I care about. I'm not in the business of wasting time, I'm in the business of changing lives.
NOTE: This is an unrefined hodgepodge of a service right now, I'm just trying to get the gist out there.
MY QUESTION TO YOU: I believe in this 1000%. Applying the "Pay Certainty Test" is where I'm a bit unsure. Am I willing and able to provide this service with excellence? Absolutely. Are these types of people WILLING and ABLE (most importantly) to pay for my service?
I am highly appreciative of any and all feedback, advice, and otherwise. I thought this would be a good place to get some valuable opinions in a short period of time by accomplished and advancing people, and this is a cool place to hang so I know I'll get no-bullshit opinions.
