Take a look at these commonly asked questions and concerns around the One Step Outside group programme:
Is it for me?
The One Step Outside the 9 to 5 programme is for you if you’re feeling stuck in a corporate job, you know that you want to make a change but you’re just not sure exactly what you want or how to go about achieving it. It's also for you if you've already started to build an independent business or freelancing practice but you're not seeing the results that you want and need for it to be a workable solution for you. You want to create more freedom, flexibility and fulfilment – and you recognise that having your own business could be an amazing way to achieve this. You may have some idea of what you want to do or you may have no idea at all, and I will help you get that clarity, build your confidence and take you step by step towards creating a viable alternative to that 9 to 5 that will give you what you want from your work and your life.
But will it work for me?
The programme will take you through tried-and-tested steps, tools, exercises and techniques that really work. However, there is no magic formula, no “6 steps to 6 figures” that I can hand you in a pdf and, tada, you’ll be living your dream life. I can’t guarantee exactly what will happen, and everyone is different. The key here is for you to take ownership of your life, to put in the effort and do the work – and I promise that the results will follow. And, if you're unsure if this is right for you then get in touch and we can jump on a call to find out!
Is it really worth the investment?
This is a significant investment of money but more than that it’s an investment of your time and energy. You need to be sure that you are committed, right now, to do what it takes. So have a think about how your life will change if you achieve your goals. Why is this important to you? What will be different? How will you feel? What will be possible? And what’s that outcome worth to you?
If you are not 100% satisfied with the programme, even though you’re working through all the materials on the membership site and attending the live calls, then let me know right away. We’ll get together to design a plan for how you can get the value that you’ve paid for – and take that One Step Outside the 9 to 5.
I don't know what I want
No problem! That’s what we’re here to find out 🙂 Figuring out what you actually want is the hardest part – but it’s also the most important, and once you have that clarity, the ‘how’ part of getting there will fall into place. With that in mind, this is a core part of the programme, and it’s really where we’ll start. I’ll make sure that you have a whole range of different tools, exercises and thought starters to help you figure out what it is that you want.
I'm not ready / I'll do it when...
If not now, when? The truth is that we often make these excuses, saying that now isn’t the right time, that we need to save money, get that promotion, or wait for whatever thing to happen before we can make a change. Most often, “not now” is going to mean “never”. So why are you putting this off? In fact, the programme will help you figure out all those question marks – I’ll help you get clear on what you really want, work out how much money you need to save, design a plan for making it happen. Don’t let another year go by without taking action! I know this is important to you, and I’m here to help you do it, once and for all.
What will I learn?
First of all, you will learn a whole lot about yourself, about your skills and strengths as well as your fears and blocks. You will learn how you can manage your mindset and set yourself up for success. You will also learn concrete steps to take to put together your business proposition and strategy. If you find that there’s something missing during the programme, then I will be creating additional materials in response to the questions I am getting from you! What the programme will not teach you is the tactical and executional stuff like how to create a Facebook ad or code your website – but I will absolutely always answer your questions and refer you to another resource or expert if needed.
How does it work?
This is a group programme that gives you access to a membership site with a library of actionable and easy-to-follow content that you can work through at your own pace. New for the June'18 cohort, you'll have access to the full membership site with videos, audio and worksheets to help move you along the steps towards creating your alternative to the 9 to 5. You will also be invited to live coaching calls, which will take place twice per month, and if you can’t make these then you’ll have access to the recordings. When you decide to invest in this programme and make the payment here on the site, you’ll right away get a welcome email with all the information you’ll need.
What's the benefit of doing a group programme?
The group programme gives you access to a whole host of materials and resources in the membership site, taking you step by step through the process to help you get unstuck and taking your one step outside the 9 to 5. You also get access to the live coaching calls, which is a small group and so you’ll have this opportunity to connect with me one on one. The group programme comes at half the cost of individual coaching with me, so it’s really a great way to get access to this level of support.
What if I need more support?
If you do find that you need more support than the trainings and resources in the membership site, then I’d really recommend that you join the live coaching calls. If you don’t feel comfortable sharing your particular situation with the group or if you really feel that you want more tailored, one-on-one support through the programme, you can upgrade to the individual coaching programme, which gives you a one-hour call (or two 30-minute calls) with me for an additional £150 per month (and this still includes the membership site and live calls). If you get to the end of the programme and you need more time, then you can of course extend your participation – to the group and/or the individual coaching – for continued support with creating and executing your plan, until you get where you want to be.
