Evercoach Review: Start Your Coaching Business with Evercoach by Mindvalley

I have just completed the Mindvalley Evercoach: Start Your Coaching Business, a 21-day training program, and – spoiler alert – IT’S BRILLIANT!

My route to the life coaching business is an unusual one, in that I chose to re-train in the discipline after being made redundant at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.  Although I have more than 20 years of experience in coaching MDs, clients, and SMEs in the premium retail space, my skill set in how to coach individuals through their blockers in life, is relatively new.  

Keep reading for my Evercoach review on how I found the online course and who can benefit from it.

An Honest Evercoach Review

I chose this particular program, because as a newbie life coach, although I was confident in any 1-to-1 client situation, I lacked confidence in selling my consultancy and wasn’t sure how to structure or market my offer.  So it was the sales and marketing units of this training program that really appealed to me.

Completing this course provided so much value and has left me motivated, inspired, confident, and positive about the future of my own consultancy.  I have learned new ways of working with clients that will add value to what I do, it has demystified and encouraged me to see ‘sales’ completely differently, and implementing some of the sales and marketing training has already generated sales!

Becoming a Mindvalley certified life coach has been the perfect ‘step two’ for me after achieving my professional and academic qualifications in life coaching. I am applying pretty much all the thought-provoking material from the course to my new business!

Many Evercoach Mindvalley reviews out there don’t go into too much depth about the course. So, here’s some more info to help you decide whether the Mindvalley life coach certification is right for you.

What is the course?

Post 8

This Evercoach certification is a 21-day training program created by the Mindvalley team, a team of extraordinary coaches like Jim Kwik. It consists of daily 5-minute video lessons, with accompanying worksheets and downloadable materials to support your further reading.

The video lessons are presented by the course author, Ajit Nawalkha, who is an extraordinary coach and engaging and likable tutor who makes you feel comfortable and confident throughout.

His style is relaxed, friendly, and confident, and his manner puts you at ease immediately, which ensures you start soaking up those positive learning vibes immediately.  His coaching skills are impeccable, and he shares his own stories throughout the training program creating a rapport that you wouldn’t expect from a video tutorial.  He is also clearly very successful, which gives you confidence in his ability and generates trust that what you can learn from him will be valuable. 

Each day’s ‘lesson’ is short enough to fit into a busy schedule, but is taught in such a way that it’s still sufficiently challenging to keep you motivated and energized to keep going. 

You watch and engage with the video first and are encouraged to make your own notes in the accompanying (downloadable and printable) journal.  Having this is a great way of keeping all your notes in one place, and I have used the journal’s notes in my own coaching practice several times since.  After the video lesson, you are then empowered to go away and undertake your ‘homework’ using the pre-preprepared templates.

This is most definitely a course that inspires you to use your knowledge and coaching skills immediately.

It takes you on a structured and motivating journey, from empowering you to establish your business and life vision and goals, to teaching you some useful tools and coaching skills to use with clients, to helping you approach your own sales and marketing.

As well as the Journal (a download you print off, fill with your own notes, and keep) to accompany the course, there are a number of really helpful books and course materials peppered throughout the course at different points that really add value. 

The course really does add value you wouldn’t expect and isn’t obvious at first.

Although the course rolls out over a 21-day period and you can’t ‘skip’ days (which is a good tactic to make sure you get the most out of the course in the limited time!), you can take breaks or pick up where you left off a few days later.  As a busy single mum, this was invaluable to me, as it meant I could dip in and out at my own pace when I had the time to really absorb the training. It meant I could spend quality time on the exercises (‘homework’!) on days that suited me.  

You can also go back over previous days to ‘top up’ bits you may have missed, which is really useful.  I actually repeated a couple of the training days several times, as I found them so valuable.

Overall, although I didn’t complete the 21 days course in only 21 days, I actually found it more valuable to do the course in bursts and concentrate on specific lessons in chunks.  The course structure gave me the freedom to learn at my own pace and spend quality time on the bits that really mattered to me.

At the end of the course, you undertake a test on what you have learned, which ensures that you retain all the most useful bits of the 21 days and also gives you the confidence that you have learned and can implement your new knowledge.  It also acts as a reminder of everything the course included, which encourages you to revisit your Journal and re-read some of the bits you found the most interesting.

You also receive a certificate upon completing the test at the end of the course, which gives you a lovely little warm feeling inside (and helps Evercoach market their course to others as you smugly share all over your social networks)!

Who would benefit from this course and how?

New life coaches will find this course absolutely invaluable! I can’t recommend it enough.  I absolutely loved it!

If you have studied the discipline elsewhere and have already learned the tools and methodologies around the discipline, this course is the perfect next step to help you practically set up your coaching business.

I wouldn’t recommend ONLY doing this course if you’re thinking about re-training as a life coach.  But as a supplement to your core training or diploma, I wholeheartedly recommend it to novice or new life coaches.

The first third of the training program focuses on your own skill set, motivations, vision, and what could hold you back from achieving your dreams.  A great way to start, it centers you on what your own success looks like and what your own 3-year plan is, to inspire you to succeed.   It also empowers you to remember other challenges in your life and how you overcame them, which puts starting your own business in a new perspective for you.  Effectively taking that ‘fear’ away from getting started.

This course fabulously helps coach you into a position of success before it starts building the more practical elements of setting up a coaching business.  By the time you get to the practical bits about how to structure your client’s sessions and how to sell and market your consultancy, you are in a place of confidence and reassurance that what you are doing is exactly the right path for you.

The middle third of the course looks at how to structure your sessions, how to get the most out of the time with your clients, and how to set professional boundaries.  This is the part of the training that starts to get practical.  This is where the professional skills get layered onto how to coach and were the most valuable to me.  

The final third I found to be the most useful of all, as it gave me specific and practical advice, as well as steps and templates to help sell my services and offer.  I was given the confidence and easy-to-follow steps to start reaching out and selling my services.

One full day spent implementing the advice led to me guesting on a webinar, two big sales, and a framework to build content and outreach that is already generating inquiries and initial consultations!

I have also learned some phraseology and interesting new ways of looking at my client’s behaviors that are really valuable.

The course inspired me to change the language on my website and invest time into developing alternative content to help me market myself.

Overall, the demystification and re-framing of sales were the most useful to me and have really motivated and inspired me.

Other types of coaches that would benefit from this course, include:

  • Coaches who have a successful practice but are looking for a sales boost.  The final third of the course would be invaluable to them if their client base is deteriorating and they need a new revenue stream
  • Coaches with experience in other professional areas, looking to expand into life coaching.  Those with an existing professional and coaching skillset, will find the exercises around 3-year planning, life goals, conquering fears, and emotional fitness really useful and help them branch out
  • Coaches who work in-house or for another business and are looking to set up their own consultancy
  • Coaches who qualified a while ago and are looking to get some fresh ideas to bring their consultancy to life

Who wouldn’t benefit from this course?

There’s only one type of person that would NOT benefit from this course and it’s those experienced and successful life coaches who already run an established practice! 

Although the refreshing of a 3-year plan, reminder about affirmations, and general ‘check-in’ on your own goals and plans is always welcome at any experience level, I think that experienced life coaches would feel this a little ‘light touch’ for them.

I would recommend more specific skills-based courses for experienced and established coaches. 

An experienced life coach will also have established sales channels that will already be returning for them, so advice on this topic may not be necessary either. 

If you’re an established coach and want to keep learning, you can check out the Mindvalley annual membership and the other programs offered on the platform. There’s so much content on the platform to learn from when you become part of the online community.

Was the Mindvalley Course Worth It?

YES! To conclude my Evercoach review: I found the course to be well worthwhile, and I wholeheartedly recommended it!
