Stairway to Six

From Client Enrollment to the Close.
Build Your Six Figure Sales Strategy Start to Finish.

You're a certified coach.

In Stairway to Six: Build Your Six Figure Sales Strategy Start to Finish, Master Certified Coach Gretchen Hydo will walk you step by step though becoming a master at client creation and business strategy so you can sell out your coaching practice over and over.

During this 6-month mastermind, you’ll learn how to:

  • Fill your new client consults.
  • Ace the client enrollment process.
  • Create daily business practices to up-level your income and your coaching skills.
  • Sell through service so clients are searching for you—not the other way around. 

Other than working with Gretchen one-on-one, the Stairway to Six mastermind is the best way to learn from an experienced six-figure coach alongside other like-minded coaches.

You’ll get direct access to Gretchen through two full-day sessions, up to 2-hour live online sessions each month (mix of daytime and evening sessions, all recorded), built-in bonus sessions, and a private Facebook community for your Stairway to Six cohort.

This program is for you if:

  • You’re certified at the CLC level (equivalent or above)
  • You’ve launched your business and you have one or more clients who are getting results
  • You’re confident in your coaching skills
  • You believe in the power of coaching and investing in yourself
  • You’re tired of having an empty calendar and an even emptier bank account
  • You’re ready to do whatever it takes to become a full-time six-figure coach

This program is NOT for you if:

  • You’re not yet a certified coach
  • You haven’t coached any clients yet OR your business isn’t yet set up to accept clients
  • You’re not sure of your coaching skills or why your clients aren’t getting results
  • You’d rather “see what happens” than decide what happens and create it for yourself

Applications are NOW OPEN for the January 2022 cohort. Space is limited.

If selected to join the Stairway to Six mastermind, you’ll have 48 hours to register and pay your deposit to hold your spot. If you’re not selected for this cohort, you will receive feedback to help you increase your chances of being accepted for the next cohort. 

Apply by November 15, 2021, to get two bonus 55-minute private coaching sessions with Gretchen, if accepted.
