What Niching Down Means for Our Health Coaching Practices

Health Coach Academy, podcast, Jalene Szuba


Jalene Szuba Notable Quotes

“Just be really aware that you’re not just going to hang your shingle and people are going to start coming to you right away. It takes time to determine what is your niche.”
Jalene Szuba

“I always use this analogy, think of [niching down] as target practice. If you’re just shooting all over the ring, you’re not hitting the target. So by having a niche, now you create a target for yourself, and it’s really for marketing. Like, as a health coach, I’ll work with anyone…but the niche really allows you to  pinpoint your marketing on one specific thing.”
Jalene Szuba


Episode Summary

As health coaches, there’s nothing we want more than to help everyone we can…but that’s not necessarily great for how we market ourselves. Doubling down on our expertise and niching down to find our best clients is the key to setting ourselves apart from other health coaches out there. A great case for this is Jalene Szuba, a board-certified sleep coach.

In this episode of Health Coach Academy, we’re talking to the Founder and CEO of Happiness Anchors, Jalene Szuba to talk about the importance of niching down, as well as why we should consider niching down. She also shares her experience making the transition from a corporate event producer to full-time coach.
