The Problem with the Coaching Industry

The coaching field is the wild west.

I’ve had months where I made $0 and months where I made $27K—so I know how much of an emotional rollercoaster being a coach running your own business can be.

There aren’t any real guidelines or support to help you succeed as a coach.

Yes, there are a few organizations that will print you off a certification if you pay them thousands of dollars and spend months jumping through their hoops.

But there aren’t great resources out there for coaches who want to learn how to actually run a coaching business instead of learning theories from academics who haven’t run a business in years (if ever).

When I started my coaching journey, I didn’t have any experience running a business, building my reputation as a coach, or creating content to position myself as a trusted source or attract opportunities.

And I didn’t know where to turn for help.

But over the years building my own coaching business, I’ve had tons of opportunities to meet (and learn from) incredible coaches and entrepreneurs. And I’ve learned a lot (the hard way) about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to succeeding as a coach.

Which is why I started YFC, so coaches can learn from (and teach) fellow coaches—hence the name, Your Fellow Coaches.

 

The Philosophy of the YFC Community is Simple...

If I share what I know with you.

And you share what you know with me.

Then we both know twice as much as we did on our own.

Multiply this by 50, 100, 1,000 coaches sharing what we all know and imagine the possibilities.

 

The YFC Mission to Help You Grow as a Coach

Too many coaches build their business in isolation because they can’t find a community tailored to them.

Finding the right community of the right peers is incredibly difficult and mostly up to luck.

I was lucky enough to find a small group of incredible coaches early on in my career.

This group helped me:

  • Launch my first course
  • Triple my coaching rate
  • Create content that attracted life-changing opportunities I’d only daydreamed about

Opportunities like working with world-renowned entrepreneurs like Ali Abdaal and getting on incredible podcasts like Smart Passive Income with Pat Flynn and Modern Wisdom with Chris Williamson, and earn powerful social proof.

Without paying some shady agency to get me on a local FOX-affiliate early morning talk show segment just so I could put “As seen on FOX” on my website.

Real, earned social proof from real people.

 

What Do People Say About My Work?

"I really appreciate your work. I really appreciate the input that you’ve got. I appreciate the insight that you bring as well. I like the fact that you’re bridging the clinical with the coaching side, too."

 
- Chris Williamson
Entrepreneur

"[Corey's episode on the Smart Passive Income Podcast] is a masterclass on your mindset.

You gotta check him out."

The Power of the YFC Community

The YFC Community is the community I wish I’d had early on and aims to capture the transformative power of being part of a tight-knit, supportive community like the one I lucked into all those years ago for coaches like you.

Because to truly unlock our personal and professional potential, we need the accountability and support of a live community of incredible peers.

Sign up today to join our upcoming events. 

When was the last time you joined a community where you could influence the direction of it?

Well we just had our Community Kickoff Call and something amazing happened...

I announced our first community challenge would be learning to build an online course based on the coaching frameworks you're already using.

Because it's what I thought they needed.

But when I asked the YFC Community members, they said something else would be even more valuable to them right now...

Refining their core offer and frameworks as a coach.

So we put it to a vote.

And now, our first community challenge will be on clarifying, refining, or redefining your core offer as a coach.

This is why I founded the YFC Community.

It's for coaches, by coaches.

If you're a coach looking for a community to help you level up your business, join the YFC Community today!

 

Overcome Analysis Paralysis and Start Taking Action

"Without [the YFC Community], I would still be sitting around thinking about coaching, researching how to coach and how to build a coaching business, preparing to coach - but not actually DOING anything to get me closer to being a coach."

Our First Community Challenge:

Refining Your Core Offer and Coaching Frameworks

In our first community challenge you'll get everything you need to clarify, refine, or redefine your Core Offer as a coach.

Before you can build courses, create content to showcase how you think and attract life-changing opportunities, or become known as the coach in your industry—you have to figure out your thing.

  • Who you help
  • What you help them do
  • How you help them do it
  • Why you're the coach to work with
  • What makes you and your approach unique

These are all part of what makes your Core Offer so powerful and transformative for your clients.

It took me years of experimenting, researching, and blindly fumbling in the dark to finally refine my Core Offer.

Because of one huge problem...

I was doing it alone.

If I'd had a community to help bounce ideas off of, give me feedback on what worked and what didn't, and practice my frameworks on, I could've had my Core Offer in no time.

As a member of the YFC Community, you'll have a huge advantage to succeed.

As soon as you join, you'll have instant access to the Core Offer challenge (along with tons of other resources).

By the end of the Core Offer challenge, you'll walk away with clarity on:

  • Who you help
  • Why you help them
  • What you help them achieve
  • How you help them achieve it
  • What makes you the only coach to work with for this transformation
  • How to come up with frameworks that facilitate your ideal client's desired transformation
  • How to structure these frameworks into a proprietary system that will become the foundation of your coaching practice, future courses, and dozens of pieces of content to position your as a thought leader and the go-to coach in your niche

With your Core Offer ready to launch, you'll be able to start:

  • Building a reputation with fellow coaches
  • Getting recommended by clients to their network
  • Establishing yourself as the go-to coach in your industry
  • Helping your clients achieve truly transformational outcomes

If you’ve been struggling to refine your Core Offer and create truly transformational coaching frameworks and systems, this challenge will help you finally unlock this most fundamental part of your coaching business.

Future challenges and events will be voted on by the YFC Community, which means you influence the direction of what we do!

Here's what community members have to say about our first challenge:

The YFC Community is Built to Fit Into Your Busy Schedule

If you’ve joined other communities in the past, don’t worry—the YFC Community is designed to not be overwhelming with dozens of channels to keep up with.

We’re intentionally keeping it as simple and streamlined as possible so you can focus on spending time interacting with people instead of trying to figure out where everything is and filter out useless content.

We have coaches from all over the world, including the US, Europe, Japan, and Australia. So we know coordinating live events can be inconvenient.

We’ve designed it to focus on asynchronous discussions and content to conveniently fit into your busy schedule.

Plus regular live events to accommodate different time zones and community accountability to help you make significant progress in your business and achieve incredible results alongside a supportive community of fellow coaches.

Who's Already in the Community?

Our members range from coaches who are brand-new, to full-time coaches with formal credentials, including:

  • Executive leadership coaches
  • Accountability coaches
  • Relationship coaches
  • Transition coaches
  • Business coaches
  • Wellness coaches
  • Founder coaches
  • Career coaches
  • Life coaches

Our members come from a variety of backgrounds from all over the world, including:

  • Psychologists
  • Academia
  • YouTubers
  • Executives
  • Startups
  • Therapists
  • Writers
  • Military

Plus many more!

If you're a coach who wishes you had a community of fellow coaches to help you grow (yourself and your business), the YFC Community just might be what you've been looking for.

 

Whether You're a Pro or Brand New,

There's Room for You in the YFC Community

 

"Becoming a coach is something that was a brand new idea a month ago. I tend to put off or hesitate when it comes to doing new and big life-changing things, so in my head, I wouldn’t be calling myself a “relationship coach” or starting to see clients for a good few years. I figured it would take me that long to get everything figured out and feel like I was ready enough.

This community, both the core offer challenge and the support/encouragement from everyone in here, has made it to where I’m already sorting out the details and creating frameworks to help clients. It’s made the entire process of becoming a coach less scary and intimidating.

My confidence is growing and I already know that the off handed comment I made a month ago of “Ha, who knows maybe I’ll become a relationship coach” is leading me down the path I’ve been searching for these past few years."

Who's the Founder of the YFC Community?

 

 

Corey Wilks, Psy.D.

  • Licensed Clinical Psychologist
  • Executive Coach
  • Entrepreneur
  • Writer

As Seen In:

 

Hey, I'm Dr. Corey Wilks

I've coached VC-backed founders, CEOs, 7-figure creators, and bootstrapped entrepreneurs across industries (AI, CPG, tech, media, etc.).

You may have seen me on Smart Passive Income with Pat Flynn, Modern Wisdom with Chris Williamson, or The Pathless Path with Paul Millerd. 

I believe too many people die regretting not having done more with their lives.

So I want to help as many entrepreneurs reach their potential as I can with the time I have left.

Time is our most precious resource—it’s the one thing we can never get more of once it’s gone.

Everything I do is about helping entrepreneurs like you reach their potential and make the most of the time they have left.

I've worked with some of the biggest names in the creator space like Ali Abdaal, and have worked with creator communities like:

  • David Perell's Write of Passage
  • Jay Clouse's Creator Science Lab
  • Justin Moore's Brand Deal Wizard
  • Tim Stoddart's Copyblogger Academy
  • Ali Abdaal's Part-Time YouTuber Academy

I'm also a contributor for Psychology Today, where hundreds of thousands of people around the world have read my content exploring the psychology of human flourishing, fulfillment, and what gets in our way.

I also write a free weekly newsletter, where I explore the psychology of how to succeed in life and business.

I’ve spent the last 16+ years studying psychology and helping people overcome obstacles, reach their potential, and build a fulfilling life and thriving business.

I'd love to help you learn to do the same.

This is why I've founded the YFC Community. So coaches have a supportive community to come together, learn from each other, share what they know.

What Have My Clients Achieved?

"My life and business have already improved significantly since working with Corey.
 
In a shockingly short period of time, we were able to do some major big-picture work - distilling down my values, identifying the kind of life I want to build, honing in on meaningful projects - and develop tactical plans for execution that aligned with those big-picture objectives and intelligently accounted for any obstacles that were likely to arise.
 
I'm already further down multiple paths than I could've imagined."
 
- Alex M.
Entrepreneur, Wallaroo

 

Alex isn't my only client who's achieved incredible results.

Here are a few other things my clients have achieved over the course of coaching:

  • Created a 7-figure company that energizes them, feels authentic to who they want to be, and allows them to explore their creativity by impacting thousands of entrepreneurs around the world.
  • Freed up 15 hours every week by removing themselves as the bottleneck in their company. How valuable would freeing up 40% of your time be for you and your business?
  • Created their "perfect week," by clarifying their mission, building a product ecosystem, and aligning their life and business with their Core Value—the freedom to educate and inspire millions of people around the world to live their best lives.
  • Crafted an authentic brand narrative to position their company as the go-to authority in their niche.
  • Turned their ideas into income by productizing their expertise to help companies scale their impact.
  • Inspired people around the world to take action toward renewable energy by leveraging the power of storytelling to create a future mythology around the importance of climate tech and green initiatives.

And the one thing every client I work with develops:

The courage to put themselves and their ideas out into the world, do the work only they can do, and align their life and business with doing meaningful, purpose-driven work that fulfills them.

- Chris Wong
Entrepreneur, Course Clubs

"I loved the practical way Corey teaches. So many other courses and training I've done, was like yeah, that's nice, I get it but now what. All the fluff and bullshit left me feeling empty...I've gotten so much clarity about what I want to do and, most importantly, how to get there."

- Sue McLachlan
Founder, The Unicorn Advisory
