Welcome to the Rich Coach Club, the podcast that teaches you how to build your dream coaching practice and how to significantly increase your income. If you're a coach and you're determined to start making more money, this show is for you. I'm master certified life coach Susan Hyatt, and I'm psyched for you to join me on this journey.
The thing that makes you really angry could make you rich. Today’s episode is all about tuning into your anger. What pisses you off? What infuriates you? What breaks your heart? Whatever it is, it’s probably the key to unlocking your best work as a coach and your most profitable work as an entrepreneur.
There’s gold inside your anger. I’ve got a true story today that you’ll love. Plus, some tips on how to tap into your anger and really allow yourself to feel your anger because it’s one of your most untapped resources. You ready to get angry? Here we go boo-berry.
We’re starting with a segment that I call your two-minute pep talk. A dose of positivity, motivation, and smart ideas to get your week started off right. Here’s a story I heard recently, and I’m obsessed. So there’s this guy named Jonathan.
A couple years ago, he got a dog named Thor. And Jonathan hired a dog walker. And this dog walker was supposed to play with Thor and take him on big walks during the daytime while Jonathan was at work. But Jonathan would come home from work and Thor, he seemed to have a ton of energy, bouncing off the walls.
And then Jonathan started feeling a little suspicious. He had a hunch that this dog walker was not doing their job. So, he secretly attached a little GPS tracking device to Thor’s collar. That way, he could see Thor’s location from his phone.
And it turns out Jonathan’s hunch was correct. The dog walker was slacking off, taking Jonathan’s money, and then not walking the dog or going on really short walks or taking really lazy, lazy shortcuts. Oh, hell no. That’s messed up, y’all.
So when something happens that makes you angry, you find out somebody’s lying to you or you discover something unfair or there’s a system that’s broken and totally unjust, what are your options? You can post a nasty Yelp review, you can whine and moan to your friends, you can complain about how it’s so unfair and fucked up, you can stuff down your anger and pretend you don’t feel it at all, or you can take the anger you feel and you can channel it into your work.
Your anger can unlock brilliant ideas that’s never occurred to you before. Your anger can motivate you to find a solution. Maybe a solution that generates tons of money for you. So that’s what Jonathan did. He figured, you know what, I bet there are plenty of other people who want to track their dog’s exact location.
He spent 18 months on product development, determined to build the world’s smartest, most sophisticated dog collar, and he did it. That’s how his company, Fi was born. With a Fi dog collar, you can see exactly where your dog is all the time using an app on your phone.
If they stray away from your backyard, you get an alert. Even if your dog runs miles away from home, you can pinpoint their location and find them, and you can see how many steps your dog took in a day. Genius. I love this story about Jonathan, and I can relate so much.
Honestly, all my best coaching ideas, all my best business ideas come from anger. When I feel intensely angry, that’s when I know I’ve hit the jackpot. For instance, I get so angry about the diet industry, which is an industry that preys upon women’s insecurities and convinces us we’re not good enough, fuck that.
I took my anger and I channeled it into creating my program Bare, which is basically the anti-diet wellness program for women. That program has changed thousands of women’s lives and has generated multiple seven figures in revenue for me.
As women, we’re often trained to ignore our anger, stuff it down or pretend like it’s not there. We’re taught to be sweet and docile. We’re taught that getting angry is unladylike. So dumb. Hear me, people. You are allowed to be angry. There are plenty of things in the world worth getting angry about and anger can be powerful fuel.
So go, get angry. Get motivated to make things right. Get to work. Create things that people need. Make things that solve problems and go get that money. What makes you angry could be your million-dollar idea. Pep talk complete.
Now we’re moving into the part of the show where I give shout-outs to you. Shout-outs to my listeners and all you wonderful people in my business community. And today, I want to give a shout-out to someone who calls themselves 3buoys.
“Regain your mental space. I am so excited to discover this podcast by the masterful Susan Hyatt. I’ll be sharing it with clients and friends in an effort to spread the message that diets are dead. Let’s stop giving the diet industry our time and money and start using our feminine awesomeness in a new and powerful way. It’s time.”

Alright, a couple more quick things for today. There are many different kinds of anger. There’s the anger you feel when someone tries to hurt your child, that fierce mama bear anger. Then there’s the anger you feel when someone’s chewing food loudly and smacking in your ears.
Those of you who know me know this is my biggest pet peeve. It’s like, I go homicidal. That’s a different flavor of anger. I believe all forms of anger, the full spectrum from mild annoyance all the way to murderous rage, it can be useful. It can teach you something. It can unlock brilliant ideas.
So, what makes you angry? Write down 10 things that make you angry. Big things, small things, pet peeves, injustices in the world. Anything that comes to mind. And take a look at your list and ask yourself, do I want to solve one of these problems? What could I create? Is there a coaching program I could offer? Is there a system I could create? Is there a service I could sell to help people solve this in their own lives?
Remember, whatever makes you angry, it could be a clue, pointing you to your best work as a coach and your next big money-making idea. So, the point is not to stay in blinding rage. The point is not just to get angry for angry’s sake. The point is pay attention to your anger. It has a powerful message for you. It’s guiding you to provide a solution for your clients.
Thank you for listening to today’s episode. I hope you’re feeling angry and feeling inspired to channel your anger into a project. Honestly, if we listen to our anger more often, we’d all probably be even smarter and happier and wealthier. So, thank you for listening. I hope this episode made a positive difference in your day and I’ll see you next week.
