Chris Delaney is a coach and therapist who specializes in fast therapy to help clients overcome life long phobias, anxieties and fears
1) How did you get started working from home?
Originally as a part coach I started I would hire venues to meet clients for coaching sessions. As i became more successful my clientele increased, especially once I released my first published book. From this, I started to work from home more delivering sessions on a global basis to clients around the world.
2) How did you choose the work-at-home career you do?
First I spent several years training and developing my skill set. With a passion for helping people I wanted to put these skills into practice. Originally I worked only part time, I built on this model making a successful business .
3) How did you get started (basic initial steps)?
Several years of training, offer free sessions to improve my skills. Set up a part time business (and made many mistakes) and built up a brand and niche.
4) How did you get your first client or customer or job?
I originally offered free sessions friends, and friends of friends. As my reputation grew and my success rate with clients increased, I then created a website and offered a paid service. My first client was a friend of friend with a phobia of spiders.
5) How do you market your business?
Through PCP on Google/YouTube and through therapy directories (paid) .
6) What does your usual day look like?
Write a presentation/workshop for upcoming events, create a blog post and plan for 3-6 sessions.
7) What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
To niche the business. Many therapist make the mistake, as I did, to try and be a one stop shop. From a marketing point of view this doesn’t work.
8) What advice would you give someone who wants to work from home?
Decide how self motivated you are. If you are highly self motivated you may want to work from an office in your house. If you need to be surround by other workers, instead of working in your house, you can work in a self starter room/office.
