I’m writing to wish you a beautiful day and to share something important and very personal.
I’ve not been in touch since August and there’s a reason why, which I’ll explain in a sec. I’ll also give you some insights into the coaching industry including some truths you need to know that others aren’t talking about.
Long story short, after I hosted my sold-out abundance workshop in NYC last June, I spent the summer working with my wonderful new Abundance Training Program clients, helping them have big breakthroughs in their business and lives.
Then in August I took a vacation to the beach to relax and connect with nature. While I was there, though, I connected with more than I planned on and was bit by a tick.
Unfortunately, the tick gave me a bacterial infection. It was not Lyme disease but it was still something pretty serious. I spent most of September ill, exhausted and dealing with the infection symptoms. I’ve never experienced anything like this before and it was quite challenging.
Thankfully, with the help of my natural healing community, my amazing physician and my strong immune system, I’ve been able to heal from the infection.
That said, those weeks of rest and recuperation gave me a lot of time to reflect on my life, my business and my industry. And I was able to meditate on how I want the next chapter of Robert Notter to unfold.
When I started my coaching business 14 years ago, I was fueled by the desire to make a difference in the world and help people. I knew I had a calling to serve others, and believe that everyone on this planet is connected by an energy of love.
I have such gratitude for what I do and feel so blessed to have a successful business, one that gives me the freedom to live a life I love and the opportunity to fulfill my mission.
Over the years, though, the coaching industry has changed a lot and not always in positive ways. And I’m going to be very blunt about what I’ve noticed, which may ruffle some feathers, but I think the truth should be said.
There is so much marketing now everywhere you look. I can’t even open my email or Facebook without seeing someone promoting the secret formula to earn 6-figures in the next month, or some magical product that’s going to change your business or life in record time.
And frankly, I find this type of marketing so disingenuous and lacking in authenticity and integrity, I can hardly even read it anymore.
Part of what’s happened is there are a lot of coaches out there now in the marketplace, and many people see this as an opportunity to make money off of them.
There are also wellness coaches who were not as successful as they wanted, so they then decided to become a “business” coach to earn more income. But how is someone with no experience in building a business actually qualified to help someone else?
Even some health and wellness schools that I respect have become mass marketers, sometimes compromising quality just to get more people in the door and make money.
On a positive note, however, my dissatisfaction about all of this inauthentic marketing has made me realize even more how VERY IMPORTANT it is for me to take what I do to the next level.
And to take a stand for all of the authentic health and wellness professionals out there, just like you, who first and foremost want to help their families, friends and communities so the world becomes a better place.
It’s time to bring the heart back to the coaching industry.
Here’s some of what I’m planning in the coming months to serve you, your mission and to help you get out there and make positive change in the world:
- free monthly videos about confidence building and authentic marketing
- insider scoop to dispel the myths about success and how to succeed as an entrepreneur
- online classes and coaching calls to get your questions answered and have more support
- a free, full-day virtual event this December about how to authentically build your income and business
- education about money and what it really means and how to embrace abundance
- success stories from other heart-centered business owners, to inspire you
- an online community, you can join for free, to connect with like-minded, success driven people
- opportunities to volunteer for and give donations to important charities
and MUCH more
Listen, it’s important to feel abundant in your income, certainly. And I’ve also learned that money is only one part of your circle of life and happiness. I want you to have all that you want in every area!
I believe everything happens for a reason. And the time I took off to heal from that tick infection really gave me the opportunity to get even more clear on what I can do to make this world a better place.
I send you lots of love and I thank you, from my heart to yours, for reading this email and listening.
This is just the beginning, and you and I are part of something bigger than we know. You are powerful, inspirational and you have a mission to fulfill.
Together we can do this, so get ready!
