Taki Moore Interview: Creating A Life That Works For You Social

This is another interview from our Energised Leader series that looks at the habits and methods of high-performing entrepreneurs worldwide.

In this episode, we’re chatting to Taki Moore, coach marketing and business building expert. In his own words, here’s everything you need to know about him: “Father of six, scaler of coaches, and lover of tacos”.

And here’s a little more information…

Being “broke as a joke” and with his third child on the way pushed Taki to set his first ever goal, to generate $8,000/month income. This led him to take action, specifically his first ever webinar, a strategy that he has since mastered and become famous for, both as a user of webinars and a teacher of webinars as a marketing strategy.

Taki now teaches coaches how to scale their business to seven figures and beyond and says he’s on a mission to eliminate cold-calling, ambulance chasing and high-pressure selling from the coaching industry and replace it with education-based marketing.
