To niche or not to niche – doesn’t matter. Get out there!


This week’s question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Rudi.

Neagle Code Question

I started my business as a life coach 4 years ago but I am not successful. I assume this is because I am confused a lot. I know so many techniques and have helped so many different people with equally different problems that I get confused the minute I think about defining a niche.

How can I get clarity and continue this work that I am truly good at? I can’t bear the idea of going back to the corporate world.

Thanks for your help!

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Rudi and thanks for your question!

Confusion is a state of mind that chronically sabotages success. I see it all the time with entrepreneurs.

It usually pops up when someone has a fear of making a wrong choice or a mistake, so let’s look for the truth to bring you back on track.

My question for you is this: Why do you feel the need to define a niche?

I have a hunch that you heard somewhere that to have a successful business you need to niche.

And I couldn’t disagree more.

I see entrepreneurs running themselves out of business because they are trying to define a specific niche rather than spending time listening to their potential clients and speaking to large audiences.

My advice would be to stop trying to define a niche and instead get out there and help as many people as you can.

You’ll know when it’s time to niche, and you won’t be confused by it.
