When I first created JigsawBox, I had been using an alternative e-learning platform that had been morphed into an online life coaching platform, but it was clunky and although it had some great templates if you were a life coach, there was no way to easily create and upload your own content.
Then, minding my own business, watching TV and not thinking about my business at all, the idea ‘I could make what I need for myself’ came into my head out of the blue.
A few emails later and the prototype for JigsawBox was born.
Initially I used it just to work with my own clients online – I had moved to New Zealand at the time and it was extremely helpful to my cash flow to be able to continue coaching my clients online in the UK while I was in the opposite time zone.
But then I opened it up to other coaches, and more and more began to come on board to add their own content and start to expand their reach beyond the traditional 1:1 coaching model and start to impact many more clients.
My inspiration became to help 1000 clients help 1000 clients each and so touch the lives of 1,000,000 people with JigsawBox.
Today we now have hundreds of coaches, ranging from coaches who have 1 client to one coach who today has 40,000 and everywhere in between.
Three years ago, on a personal level, I stumbled across a completely different way of coaching and working with people and as well as running JigsawBox, I’ve been immersing myself in that understanding, and it’s shifted my inspiration for what we’re up to at JigsawBox.
Instead I’d like JigsawBox to help as many coaches as possible impact their clients. That’s means we want to offer more than just an online platform.
Impact means two things to me:
- The number of clients each coach reaches. Yes, the team and I still would love to help 1000 coaches reach 1000 clients each – and we’re changing what we do here at JigsawBox to try to help facilitate that as much as possible….. watch this space….. We want YOUR ideas on this too – we’ll be sending out a survey shortly to ask you how we can better help so that we can throw your ideas into the mix to come up with the best possible solutions
- The depth to which you impact each and every client you work with. I know you’ve all got your particular styles and ways you enjoy coaching your clients. I’ve learned some pretty cool things in the last few years about how to increase that impact even further to create profound transformational change, so I’ll be sharing that with you too. As coaches we’re always learning and want to get the best results with our clients, so my hope is that you find what I have to share with you on this helps too.
So, to answer the first point, we’ll be introducing The Impactful Coach monthly calls with me, where you can get hot-seat coaching on how to fill your JigsawBox, how to get it out there, and get a fresh perspective on what’s holding you back.
These are alongside our monthly what-buttons-to-press-where-inside-JigsawBox Monthly Success Clinics where you can get help from the team on actually setting up your JigsawBox correctly, adding video, audio, drip-feeding content and everything else you ever wanted to know about JigsawBox.
Both of these calls are offered to JigsawBoxers only (click here to sign up if you’re not already coaching online.)
Watch your inbox for details of both of these.
As the first step in answering the second point – Michael Neill and I are running a webinar together this Wednesday called The Secret to High Impact Coaching which you’ll find relevant whether you’re a JigsawBoxer or not – click here to register for the call and join us.
This is our current vision, if you like. It’s the game we’re playing. Who knows where it will lead us? But it’s great to have you along for the ride.
Are you up for some of that? Let me know 🙂
