This conversation, in generic terms, can easily be repurposed into a special report/e-course for her website/newsletter as follows:

You could just as easily skip breaking the report into sections and offer it as a single report. How easy is that?
Your Coaching Challenge

not, I request that you select a date within the next 30 days by which

And remember, you do
not need to have a website to make this happen and start getting
signups for your newsletter list. The important thing is to take
consistent action in moving forward. . .starting NOW! 🙂
