And...a Sample micro chapter...
Here's how a typical listing will look in the eBook....


The power of working directly with someone on a goal, especially a pretty big goal, can not be understated. When we set a goal, there are many obstacles along the way and having someone as committed as you are to your goal -- or even to their own goal -- can often be the key for finally reaching your goal/desire.

The trick is to pick someone who is as excited about reaching their goal as you are excited about reaching your goal.  This partnership makes the goal reaching process fun -- and collaborative.  After all, life is likely to toss up quite a few distractions, speed bumps and 'better opportunities,' so why not failsafe your goal by sharing the game with a friend or colleague?

And, if you're setting a really powerful or confrontive goal for yourself, doesn't it make sense to do everything possible in order to keep you focused until you reach that goal?  Having a partner can help.  Or perhaps working with a professional coach is the partner for you.  

Having a friend, partner or coach who is committed to your success is crucial to make the necessary changes, both internal and external, to ensure long-term success. When it comes to support 1+1 really does = 3.  Or more.

About Chris Barrow:

Chris Barrow has been coaching business owners since 1980
and has a proven track record of working with prominent dentists and other professionals around the world in helping them to create more profit in less time.

This from Chris: "Iím gusting up to 185 clients this year, a million dollars in gross revenues, lotís of profit, lots of time off, a great adventure of a life ≠ and, most important of all, a file of testimonial letters from my clients that tell me I make a real difference in their lives."

Chris describes his personal mission statement and the philosophy he brings to this 2 day training and everything he does:

In my role as entrepreneur - to remember that I can gain nothing in my professional life without giving something first. To have earned the respect of my strategic partners and my peers. To be a leader, guide and role model to my support team.

In my role as a coach - to have assisted clients in establishing their own consuming vision of the future, to translate that vision into goals and to have established a plan of action. To be a principal trusted adviser and friend. For more information about Chris, visit www.thebusinesscoachingco.com

What you'll learn how to do...

Here's what you are going to learn how to do at the Million Dollar Practice Intensive...

1. Construct a powerful three-year vision.
This may seem obvious, but most coaches do not take the time to sit down and create a vision that will pull their business forward. From this one step the strategy to build your practice will come about, and along with it the power to take you to whatever size practice you wish. (Maybe it's a million dollars.) We will also
teach you how to package your coaching services into a product clients will buy.

2. Plan the time to plan.
Thousands of coaches say they get into coaching because they want more freedom and yet the reality is they quickly become slaves to their business. One of the outcomes of this 2 day event, is the additional freedom that you will create for yourself. We will walk you through how to use advanced planning techniques to create the space you need to really build a large and sustainable practice.
 
3. Get control of finances and setting prices.
Master the financial side of your business once and for all. We'll show you how to set your fees for you coaching business and how to leverage financial tools and resources. As a bonus, we'll also show you how to successfully manage your cash flow.
 
4. Lead a championship support team.
You've heard the distinction Michael Gerber makes in his bestseller the "Emyth" that is "working 'in' your business is different from working 'on' your business." We will show you how powerfully this business concept can be applied to your coaching practice. You'll also learn the key strategies for building a world-class support team. Very few people make it in the world by themselves. Let this training help you see the benefit of leveraging others to get what you want and need.

5. Create world-class customer service by delivering  a "wow" practice.
A strong referral rate is still the number one way to not only fill but maintain a successful coaching practice. During the 2 day event you'll learn the secrets of top coaches and develop a top notch client referral system.

6. Refine your ethical selling skills.
Most of us say we hate selling and yet, most coaches get into the industry because of their love of people. We will show you how to overcome any fear you have about talking about coaching and help you build the proper language to use to get
people to buy your services. There is a science to this and we will show you how.

7. Develop a steady flow of new clients using low-cost marketing techniques.
Marketing is a fairly straight forward process. However, since Coaching is a relatively new profession, there are a lot of ineffective and costly marketing techniques being tossed around as 'gospel' when they aren't. We will show you the methods that work and you will be surprised at how easy and pain free marketing can be.

8. Maintain balance between work, rest and play.
We said it before and we'll say it again. It's not about the money. Truly. This 2 day event is all about creating the business that brings you the life most people only talk about. Yes, you will make more money if you follow the strategies we cover, but more importantly you can have the work-play balance you dreamed of when you first got into the business.

How is the training designed?

The training has been designed as a powerful learning experience...
Multimedia presentations to quickly and graphically convey the key points, principles and theory.
"Front of the room demos" by the presenter so that you can see real world demonstrations of optimal form.
"From the podium" discussions between the leaders and you so that you can benefit from the wisdom of other coaches in the room. (We use floating wireless microphones.)
Highly interactive dyads and triads so that you can practice and perfect what you are learning using scorecards and guides.
Case study examples and 'team solution' methods to prepare you for the types of client situations that you will be encountering in the real world.
Networking opportunities before and after each day's sessions.
 

What are the logistical details?
We are keeping the training as interactive, effective, and simple as possible.  You'll have plenty of free time for networking.
1. Everyone is in the same event room during the training.  
2. Chris Barrow is leading most of the segments 
3. All sessions are interactive and discussion-based (and include step-by-step handouts).
4. You are on your own for meals. Water is served during the breaks.
