Collaborative Coaching Squads...
This question came up in an off-topic conversation in Cohort 9 when considering the challenges of solopreneurs taking on larger companies.
I'm curious, from the community and fellow cohorts before us if anyone has:
1. Has collaborated in a coaching engagement?
2. Has any interest in doing this?
If there were any interest, it would be cool if Impact+ could help shepherd the process in any way.

What are the wins/losses for all parties; Impact+, Coaches, and Clients? What could this collaborative network of squads and processes look like? With Impacts+ limited growth model, what could it mean for the future of TAYA scale, Coaching Cohorts, and profits and positioning?
Maybe nothing... Maybe something...
With all our other objectives and ideas, would it be worth discussing what this could look like? If so, how could we give it enough attention to get to the point of knowing, now, not now, or never?
Nate, as a solo shop here, this is something that is def on my radar. But, I have not been able to figure a way that would truly make it work for all. I imagine I will need/want to hire someone over the next year or so, what would the interim be? How would a few band together to create a shared resource, and also aligns with how we, as separate businesses, do business?
I like your enthusiastic post below, replying to Dia. My brain goes to gig economy too. But, again, gig workers march to their own drum.
I am really hoping I can figure out a way, curriculum, that really allows me to focus on "coaching" and the IM+ content acts as the trainer, with slight oversight from me as a coach. I am looking forward to hearing more from Impact on how they are doing working with the SMB coach only model.
Another thing I have been thinking about is group coaching/training with multiple clients at a time. So, 1:1 coaching as planned, but training happens X times a month, clients show up to that, get questions answered in a group setting, people also learn through osmosis and peer validation. In this scenario, a well trained trainer could possibly be the trainer for multiple coaches at once. Would also need to have each coach be aligned on how said trainer would present themselves as a representative of all of us.
That said, and in the spirit of your enthusiastic post below, I could see this is a possible job placement kind of service eventually too. Kind of like re-thinking recruiting for companies needing content, video, HubSpot employees that follow along with TAYA. Disrupt that whole model. As I type that, I see that needs more fleshing out. Just trying to solve for the problem we see coming up, especially if we want to me helping more mid-market companies, from the how do WE do it, to the how can we help the client fill the roles as well.
Anyway... LMK if you would like to chat one of these days and discuss further. I know this is something Hannah Eisenberg is looking to possibly solve for as well.
As we wrap up the week, it's important to close out Friday knowing you got the most important things done. But how do you maintain focus on those things, especially when Friday afternoon creeps up? I love to map out my tasks on the Eisenhower matrix. It looks like this: View full-sizeDownload How do you stay focused on the most important things??

Your content creation process needs to be airtight to serve as a robust engine for your content creation vehicle. You might be thinking, "I simply create content as I go and when needed." However, consider this: one of the major challenges many face is maintaining a routine of producing three articles and two to three videos per week.Without a solid foundation in place, competing becomes a daunting task.Check out the content creation roadmap template. First, start by identifying the top three most pressing topics, once have those prepared...Its off to the races Research and Planning (Duration: 1-2 days) SME (Subject Matter Expert) Interview (Duration: 1 day) Create First Draft (Duration: 1-2 days) Internal Review (Duration: 1-2 days) Revision (Duration: 1 day) Final Review (Duration: 1 day) Publish (Duration: 1 day) What does your content creation process look like currently, and does it set you up for success on a consistent basis?
Nathan Dube I won't pretend I've tested every tool out there, but this one is the one I'm using currently: https://writer.com/ai-content-detector/(it called me out on my own writing vs ai writing accurately :S)I think the factual part comes into how granular your content is. So for example, one of the articles I (tried to) AI for my own company was about luxury wedding venues here in KY- it completely destroyed that one and not in a good way. It did fine on easy to crawl info like the addresses, but failed when it had to go a few pages deep into the website (pricing, for example).I will say that it's great news that we have multiple rounds of edits baked into our processes through TAYA- having SMEs a click away to check over info is awesome, I just always have that nagging fear in mind that we don't want to create unnecessary work for others. I know when I pulled that wedding venue article, it wound up being more time consuming just to fix everything than it would've been just to write the thing myself!
Hey Winnie Anderson ! This is a common question even for those that look at data every day on these platforms! It can be confusing to know when to look at each one. Here is a video I made for a newsletter a while back that talks about the difference between the two.In terms of your specific case, if you have yet to dive into either, I recommend starting with HubSpot and getting familiar with the data you get there. It is honestly easier to use, and less convoluted. It will also have 99% of the data you most likely will be looking for. I have also made a graphic that helps you identify the overlap and the uses for common reporting platforms.
I'm sure Chris Marr will offer his thoughts/advice on this topic too. We'd be happy to open up this discussion or introduction to other coaches pondering the shared personnel structure for supporting their work.
For your attention, Hannah Eisenberg & Darin "Doc" Berntson
