The Pumpkin Plan program was not only created with business coaches like you in mind, it was created by business coaches who have been in your shoes. And it was molded and shaped by direct, honest feedback from the coaches who have been using it with their clients – and getting incredible results – since 2013.

Seriously, you are one small step from changing your life. This is SO worth it and it WILL change your life.” Mark Lipshut, Certified Pumpkin Plan Strategist

“What really attracted me to the pumpkin plan and becoming a strategist was the toolbox that came with it. I was like, I don’t have to create all these really great tools, and I have a program and a path that I can bring my clients through. I’m also bringing my employees into the coaching aspect of the business, and because they have gone through the Pumpkin Plan Strategist training, they deliver it the way that I deliver it, which was really important to me.” Christeen Era, Certified Pumpkin Plan Strategist

“Donna and the Pumpkin Plan Team really exceed my expectations when it comes to support. They are always there for me, they stay in contact, and they are always thinking about what their members need to succeed. That’s very different from other programs that I have participated in.”  Kim Logsdon, Certified Pumpkin Plan Strategist 

Once you join our program and community, we support you in multiple ways.

  1. In addition to the self paced portion of your learning journey, you participate in small group live on Zoom learning sessions twice per month, where we get to know you as an individual, demonstrate the tools, answer your questions and help you apply the Pumpkin Plan strategies to grow your own business.
  2. You will meet monthly with your personal success guide to support you in obtaining your certification and meeting your income goals.
  3. You will enjoy the camaraderie, wisdom and collaboration of the Pumpkin Plan Community, as you learn, grow and celebrate your wins together. No more going it alone!

“It’s super easy to work with the Pumpkin Plan team and they provide so much support. The program contains actionable, practical advice. I feel that I’m in the right neighborhood, in the right community.” Andrew Lawless, Certified Pumpkin Plan Strategist 

Right away! Once you join you can use the Pumpkin Plan tools, strategy and processes with your clients as soon as you feel comfortable. Many of our members jump in and immediately start incorporating the tools into their coaching, increasing the value of their offering.

You receive your certification when you complete our self-paced training. At that time you will receive a verified badge, a certificate, and you will be listed in our Strategist Directory on the Pumpkin Plan website, where prospective clients can find you.  

“For years I struggled at getting enough clients and ideal clients. And then I joined the Pumpkin Plan Program and everything changed. I got certified within my first month. Within my first 6 months I started attracting exactly the kind of clients that I wanted to work with and I tripled my revenue. I couldn’t be any happier with this program!” Andrew Lawless, Certified Pumpkin Plan Strategist

The certification portion of your training is a series of self-paced videos and quizzes, so how long it takes to complete is up to you. There are approximately 10 hours of videos plus 10 quizzes.

“One of the MOST impactful benefits is being part of a community of like minded coaches/strategists. It is hard to do it on your own, but being part of THIS community is a multiplier of impact. 

Seriously, you are one small step from changing your life. Hate to sound like an advertisement, but this is SO worth it and it WILL change your life.”  Mark Lipshut, Certified Pumpkin Plan Strategist
