As you can see, the new JMC website is up and live so welcome here and feel free to check out the new look and features.
Some of you will be aware there was a new website built earlier this year on www.myjmccoach.com.
"So why another one" i hear you ask?
Well there's a lesson in my recent experience for everyone that could save you $$$ and I'm determined to share it with you!
I'm actually doing the rebuild myself. Unfortunately, as i mentioned before that I had one built earlier this year by a 'professional' web designer. It looked great but then they decided to take ownership of the whole thing until I paid additional money above what we agreed to. The brief was discussed in many phone calls but unfortunately for legal reasons, if you want to take it further legally it ALL has to be in writing.
So I wanted to speak about it in this newsletter / blog to try to protect many of you from what's happened to me. If you want to get a site built and are not sure what to ask for or what to do to make sure it's done correctly, I'm talking to you.
If I can pass on one message, it's that if you pay someone to build your website or do any work for you and you want ownership of YOUR creations to be in YOUR name, make sure everything is stated clearly in the agreement / contract, otherwise you're vulnerable.
The main reason for this (something I only discovered through my business coaches) is that if it's still jointly owned by them, they own your IP (Intellectual Property) and your site and can claim a percentage of what you make through your site FOREVER. YEP, that's right, they can just get up one day and decide they'll take what you earn from your hard work!
In business you must be thorough as you can't trust everyone. When I contacted this 'nice lady' to ask for my work to be transferred into my name like we had discussed (I'd only discovered it was in her name by accident), she went from being pleasant to deal with to a very nasty, manipulative person - demanding double the agreed price or she wouldn't hand it over.
As most of you who know me are aware, Im sure i can easily say I'm pretty easy and reasonable to work with but when taken for a ride, well... let's just say I handed it over to my business coach to deal with as I was livid.
There is a lesson in everything that happens to us and the lesson I take from this experience is that you have to set your boundaries and direction CLEARLY and IN WRITING, especially in business. The site may not look as flash as the last one but it's mine and it's safe from others who might want to take advantage of me.
So please be careful out there. There are a lot of wonderful people to help us and do the right thing but there are also selfish people who want to ruin it for others.
Yes, I am a coach and even I rely on the help of MY coaches to guide me and make sure things are done correctly and I'm heading in the right direction. This is what great coaches do, keep you accountable and on track, as my new motto goes...
Clarity - Confidence - Connection
If I'm able to help in anyway with your struggles or direction feel free to send me an email with what you're dealing with or call me direct on 0449 954 999 and we can have a casual chat about how to get you back to where you want to be.
Have a great day and stay true to yourself.
