Have you ever considered goal coaching as a side hustle?

Her passion and energy are contagious and it’s been a delight to get to know her.
There are many types of coaching available now and while we often set goals, how many of us achieve them? Having someone you are accountable can make a huge difference. Check out what Ange does and how she does it below and follow her on Instagram or Facebook.
About My Goal Squad
My Goal Squad is about empowering others through goal setting. Teaching and coaching people to define their values, create their vision, then identify the goals that will get them so excited they take action.
Goal setting can be a key success tool that, when applied to all areas in life, can result in achieving results we never thought were possible. We empower people to take a dream and turn it into a reality by setting it as a goal and creating an achievable plan to reach it. This is perfect for all ages from high school to retirement. It’s not something people get taught but it’s a total game changer.
My Goal Squad offers:
- Online goal setting programs
- 1:1 goal coaching
- Goal setting workshops
- Great resources, motivation, tools and inspiration.
What do I do?
I am the founder and Head Goal Coach at My Goal Squad: running programs, developing programs, goal coaching and doing the everyday business admin that needs to be done. Each day goes so quickly when you are passionate about it!
How much do I make?
$100 per hour for 1:1 goal coaching.
How and why did I get into it?
I started it around 8 months ago when people kept telling me I should do it as a business. I would goal coach friends and staff that worked for me and their feedback was so positive, the results they were getting and what they were saying gave me the confidence to say – “Hell Yes I’m ready to start!!”
I have always been someone that set goals including setting others goals, like how many Gourmet Traveller recipes mum could make for our family each week (cheeky me!) and then I found a totally fitting culture when I worked for Lululemon Athletica for a great 8 years. They are all about empowering others and building leadership and I absolutely loved it! Getting into it, I built a 6 week online goal coaching program, a 1:1 goal coaching program, Group Workshop and Corporate Goal Strategy Workshops and the website and off we went.
What are the pros?
It’s a passion for me, where time disappears and I am totally engaged and all I want is the results to for the client. I love enabling people from being stuck in their life to seeing an exciting, amazing future they would love to live, then taking the action to reach it.
Goal coaching isn’t known and used enough but the benefits and number of people it could positively affect are huge. I just LOVE supporting others to achieve their dreams or find a new future that makes them smile and love every day of their life.
What are the cons?
It’s quite unknown and people don’t know how much more they could achieve or how it could help them without trying it. As you might think- well I’ve got this far without it, so why would I need to do goal setting? So it’s a hard one to share the benefits of unless they set goals. take action and watch awesome results roll in!
It’s also challenging to find people who need goal coaching? Where do they look or go? I’d love to know!
What do you wish you had done differently?
Started off running workshops in person, as people are more likely to turn up in person and then when they know who you are and what you are like, they will then likely do an online program. I also wish I got some help with a really strong digital marketing strategy (and I STILL need this!) tricky as a startup though, so you do what you can yourself.
What tips would you give others?
Find a group you can meet up with regularly in person to chat about different strategies and bounce your business questions off each other. Annnnnnnd more than anything, to share the good and tough times with. Otherwise, you can feel like you are the only one with the challenges!
