Monday, November 12, 2018 – How to Transform Your Website into an Online Business Platform

A visitor to your website can be expected to stay about 8 seconds, unless…
You capture their attention to entice them stay a little longer and learn a little more.

Then you have 1-2 minutes of their attention before they leave, unless…
they engage with you, so that you can follow up with them and engage them in a longer conversation.

Many traditional websites are passive. People might read the free content offered, but often don’t, because… well, because people are busy. Even if they take the time to read the free content, they may not engage with you. As a result, the traditional approach to websites may not be driving the results you desire. You need a more comprehensive “platform” to broaden your reach and increase your impact.

Tom Teague, our own online business platform architect, will show you how to transform your website into an online business platform. He is an expert in the new state-of-the-art Kajabi-based website design, which includes public content, blog, marketing pages, email campaigns, sales pages, private content sites and much more. Tom will demonstrate the transformation of the new SDPCA website, and show us our new Coach Finder platform. Every SDPCA member in good standing will have their own personal web page which is searchable by both category and text search. A dynamic site, platform and approach, each Coach Profile page may now contain a wide variety of rich, well-formatted content including text, images, video and external links to your own website and your own free offers.

Session Outcomes/Benefits include:

  • Broaden your reach and increase your impact by creating an integrated online business platform
  • Learn how to transform your existing website into an online business platform
  • Create your best Coach Finder profile for the new SDPCA site

Tom applies his 30+ years of experience designing and building software systems for large organizations like Exxon and NASA to work with coaches, consultants, authors, speakers, trainers, and professional service providers to broaden their reach, increase their impact, and improve their revenues using online business platforms. After investing tens of thousands of dollars – and thousands of hours – in “Internet Marketing Grad School” and meeting hundreds of small business owners frustrated with “tech issues” over the last five years, Tom realized that many of us are struggling in learning how to apply online technologies, because there are an overwhelming number of available technology choices. It’s like trying to piece together a puzzle without a box top picture. He saw a need to teach an organized, agile approach that aligns your platform with your business strategies so that you only create the minimum tech you need to support your business strategy. Tom created the six-step Agile Business Success System to help clients manage the complexity and get their online business platform up and operating quickly! Using the Agile Business Success approach, Tom consults, coaches, and teaches the skills you need to finally get your online business platform operational and working for you!

Monday, October 8, 2018 – Fall In Love With Your Business – Celebrating Autumn Abundance


Ready, Set, COACH!

Who is your ideal client? What do they need? What are they saying? What keeps them awake at night?
What benefits might they receive as a result of working with you?

Choosing a niche or target audience doesn’t limit you to only working with certain kinds of clients on certain topics, it’s really just a matter of picking a starting point. A place where it’s very easy for people to say “I want that.” When you give people a “starting point,” you’ll actually be helping people who want to hire you. You’ll be making it easier for them. And as you start getting more clients, you’ll be adding a lot more “coaching dollars” into your bank account, and make a major contribution to people’s lives. In this session, we will explore how to establish a mindset to attract your ideal clients. We’ll also look at how to narrow the focus from general to very specific.

And, you’ll walk away with a strategy to connect with people who want your services.

Session Outcomes/Benefits:

  • Establish practices to support a client-attracting mindset
  • Identify your ideal client in terms that are specific, enticing and memorable
  • Develop strategies to connect with people who want your services

Your Video on Coach Finder

Video is hot! 80% of Internet traffic is video – and that’s growing.

Fortunately, video is a major opportunity for coaches. Video is the best tool for building know-like-trust online. But video can be scary and overwhelming. Videographers can be expensive. Do It Yourself (DIY) video can be time consuming. You may feel uncomfortable on camera. Or you might not know what to say. And there are so many places and ways to use video – how do you know what’s right for you? “I want you to share your knowledge and expertise with more clients and with the general public online.”

Brighton has simplified online video for coaches to make it accessible. In this presentation, he shares why video is so important and give you guidance on how to produce great video using tools you already own.

Session Outcomes/Benefits:

  • Understand why video is a powerful tool for coaches
  • Become more comfortable and confident being on camera

Presenter: Brighton West, Producer, Director, Coach, Educator
Brighton is a video-preneur. He began his video journey making narrative and documentary videos – but he was always behind the camera. Along the way, he learned that being on camera was more influential/beneficial/profitable than being behind it. So he overcame his on-camera jitters and now helps his client turn the camera on themselves. Brighton has built his business by creating YouTube tutorials about using YouTube in business. Through this channel, he’s positioned himself as the expert for coaches, authors and speakers who want to grow their global audience with YouTube. Brighton works with coaches around the world, capturing client testimonials, video-headshots and handling the technical and strategic side of YouTube. Most clients record their own videos (after Brighton trains them) but others work with a local videographer. Brighton’s team then edits, uploads, optimizes and promotes the videos to position the coach as an expert in their niche. He also teaches coaches how to do everything necessary to be successful on YouTube (from picking topics, writing a script, shooting, uploading and optimizing so the video attracts potential clients.)

May 14, 2018 — Brainy but Stuck: An Insider’s View to Managing the Brain’s “Executive Function”

Brought to you by a panel of SDPCA members and experts!

Executive Function is a set of mental processes that helps us get things done — but can be compromised. If you’ve had clients who have difficulty sticking to a plan, managing time, evaluating ideas, finishing work, or keeping track of multiple things at once, their Executive Function may be impaired.

Executive Function is really important because it helps people:

  • Manage their time well
  • Plan and organize work and home life
  • Pay attention
  • Remember details
  • Take action and follow through
  • Easily switch focus from one activity to another

Being overly stressed, depressed, learning disabilities, ADHD, or a lack of sleep, can lead to temporary or ongoing Executive Function difficulties. However, there are strategies and approaches to improve Executive Function and help to cope with these difficulties. In fact, Executive Function can be improved at any age!

During this interactive panel presentation, you will learn:

  • How to help clients manage their focus and mental energy
  • How social and emotional triggers can undermine a client’s capacity to succeed
  • Tools that we can implement today to sharpen our Executive Function

As coaches, our job is to help people do more, be more, and have more. Usually, this requires our clients to take at least one step outside of their comfort zone. This session is about how we can all push ourselves to make positive changes that stick by thinking big but starting small.

By the end of the presentation, you’ll be able to impress clients with a perfect solution for each of their individual sticking points and not only show you understand their fears, but have just what they need.

This presentation is about how you can help coach others, and the innovative ideas may prove helpful to you, too. Lee will show you his new and different way to design life plans that are visual and flexible, and portable.

Benefits from this session:

2/12/2018 – Somatic Focusing: Fast Track Transformation, EQ, and the Neuroscience of Change

ICF: 1.5 hours – Core Competencies
BCC: 1.5 hours

Speaker:  Andrea Isaacs, creator of EQQuiz


Looking to deepen your coaching practice? Somatic Focusing (“SF”) is a premiere methodology for embodied living, leadership, and cultivation of the self. Based on the neuroscience of change, SF is an experiential approach that creates engagement, compelling communication, trust, and results-oriented action. Clients engage limiting beliefs, and then bypass the “thinking mind” to create new neural pathways that change how they react, and increase their Emotional Intelligence (“EQ”) for sustainable change.

SF incorporates simple body movement that creates a deeper and increased emotional range of options available, so you can respond in a way that would have previously been inaccessible. With SF your clients will find new ease with challenging people and situations, greater success, and long-term happiness.

Benefits from this Session:

  • Learn how to tap into your body’s wisdom to create new neural pathways that increase your range of intelligence
  • Shift a limiting belief to an empowering belief
  • Access creative solutions when confronted with challenges


Andrea Isaacs is a speaker, coach and trainer who has been empowering the lives of thousands in 25 countries since 1994. Her body wisdom approach has increased emotional intelligence and deeper change in her clients. Her neuroscience-based brain training techniques have helped clients embody a greater range of healthy emotions, and maximize their potential personally and professionally.

She is the creator of EnneaMotion, Somatic Focusing (“SF”), and the EQ Quiz (at, which assesses your strengths and directs a somatic approach to your development, which are being used by conscious high-performing leaders around the world.

She has been teaching alongside Don Riso (until his passing in 2012) and Russ Hudson since 1994, was Co-founder and Editor-Publisher of the Enneagram Monthly and on the International Enneagram Association (IEA) Board of Directors for six years.
