My Personal Weight Loss Coach
Who would I want for my personal weight loss coach? Let's see – Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Candice Swanepoel – well, this list of beauties would certainly motivate me to drop a few pounds, but none of them are personal weight loss coaches, and if they were, I doubt I could afford any of them!
But, as a personal weight loss coach, you need to find out what your clients are seeking if you want to attract and retain clients, and stay in business. Of course, you can't provide them with supermodels or sexy actresses, but you can usually provide them with what they need.

To be a successful coach, you have to find out what potential clients want and need, and then you have to figure out ways to help them attain the outcomes they seek. A great way to do this is to create a fictional person called, “My Personal Weight Loss Coach.”
There are two great ways to determine what your clients want and need to be successful at shedding unwanted pounds – and they are both very easy!
