are saying about the
First Fifty Clients
experience with 'First Fifty Clients speech' - I can tell you it works!! Using
one of the techniques I've found it really impresses people and immediately opens
a gap for a conversation. The first 2 people on my list immediately agreed
already recouped the costs of the First Fifty Clients and the CoachStart
Manual in coaching fees in 3 weeks."

I'd had this CD years ago, I would have been so far ahead of where I am now. I
was following other strategies, but missing the key strategy. Thanks a bunch,
Dave. WIth each client I work with I gain confidence and affirm that, "Hey,
I really do have something valuable to give the world."

- you have just moved to No 1 on my list of resources for when I get stuck!
love, love, love, the way you present yourself. You sound great on the recording
- very grounded, calm, gentle and sure. I have printed off your materials and
will listen to the recording daily. My coach has been saying the same thing in
a different way for ages but something, somehow, stopped me taking action. Your
step by step instructions were just what I needed!"
"I have given 14 complimentary sessions and have 5 more scheduled for next
week. Out of the 14 calls I have completed, 3 have committed to private coaching,
3 want to do group coaching, and 3 others have signed up for other services that
I offer. That is a success rate of 9/14. I plan to re-read and re-listen
to the programs again at least once each week. Thanks so much, this is what I
needed to kick-start my business."

"Until I used some of the techniques in your Coaching Manual I had found it difficult
to get passed that first chatting mode when explaining to people what I do. Your
valuable advice and guidance came into fruition for me when having a casual chat
recently - and ended with arranging a trial session! Thank you so much
for your clear and concise advice and guidance on the coaching, I will
certainly be recommending your training to others."

"I found First Fifty Clients very helpful and it inspired me to get things
moving with starting my own business. Thanks very much and keep it coming
with the great newsletters."
am a newly trained coach (approximately 6 months in the business), and already
have 5 paying clients, plus 4 pro bono clients that are nearing finishing or are
finished coaching with me. I have benefited so much from the resources you provide.
now I am very excited after listening to your program - I have a great deal of
potential sessions already developed and plan to do as many as I can from now
on. Thanks once again for all that you have done - you are a true inspiration."
"I can't tell you how valuable your information has been to me. I'm a new
coach starting out, and your practical, common sense ideas have expanded
my coaching skills, and inspired me to expand my marketing strategies. I'm now
so excited about my practice! You are also a great model for me in terms
of great personal customer service. Thanks again for your impact on me and my

was feeling very stuck on getting clients. David, your speech inspired me and
lit a fire under me! You had me question who I am and why was I so drawn to this
profession, and confronted me with my "playing small". I can't believe you said
I was a 'waste of space'! But it did the trick.
decided to run a contest at a chiropractic office for a chance to win a month
of life coaching. I've also created a flyer inspired by your speech - simple but
powerful. It went so well there is a buzz in the office about life coaching which
many of them had not heard of before. I'm already expanding it.
to your wake up call, I now feel like my business is going to grow at lightening
speed. But most importantly, I got back in touch with what is it that I am really
out to cause in the world!"

"I thought the 50 Clients information was terrific. It made me realize
that I have been putting off actually starting to coach so now I have started
and have several new clients. I have found all of your tools very useful,
especially the sample scripts and information on coaching structure
and defining my niche. Thanks."

"It was a great speech, very inspiring & touched on key issues in
connection with coaching. I also like the section at the end where you had a Trial

"I found 'First Fifty Clients' very helpful in putting together an exploratory
session. I love the fact it lets people know what we will do in 30 minutes
and what I'm going to get a commitment on if it all works out. It gave me confidence
in my abilities to keep things together in a timely manner and is a tool that
will help me for many years and hundreds of clients to come."
am listening to your ICF speech right now - it is incredible. Confidence
is key - since I heard your voice I have experienced such tremendous growth it
I am out there having conversations with people like I dreamed of doing a
year ago! My one-liner about what I do has become clear! Just knowing you are
out there, knowing what you are committed to inspires me to no end. Thank you
for contributing so powerfully in results for me personally, professionally, and
for my clients!"
just listened to your presentation, and I'm now inspired to make my coaching practice
explode. I'm now very clear on what I uniquely have to offer people - and it definitely
gets me excited about sharing what I do!"
bought your 'Getting the First Fifty Clients' seminar recording and found it really
useful in motivating me to get coaching people whether paying or not just
to get the practice/confidence."
a short message to say how useful I found your speech. I am a recently-qualified
coach living just outside London, and I am sure I'm not alone in finding the prospect
of building a coaching practice from scratch a rather daunting prospect. It certainly
helped me reconnect with the reasons that I trained to become a coach, and the
way that you present the one-liner as a method of eliciting interest during an
initial contact is a very powerful way of getting the ball rolling.
I am now busy compiling my list of contacts for an exploratory session, and have
just done my first session, which was very productive. Many thanks for the much-needed
guidance on how to start building my practise - more of the same would always
