2 Coaching Concepts


Our clients are humans with real lives.

And those lives can be tough.

Great trainers know to read the client in front of them that day, and veer away from the plan if necessary.

Read Amy's story



Write on stellar template.

Build the best program for your niche once.

Then, individualize it for each online client.

Don't start from scratch each time.

2 Business Nuggets


A lot more people fail because they don’t have enough sales than go under from a lack of a logo.

Beware of false progress.



Prepare yourself for the future by doubling down on ‘Future Skills’

  • Communication skills (writing, presenting, storytelling, listening)
  • Interpersonal skills (conflict resolution, leadership, social intelligence)
  • Critical Thinking Skills (empathy, judgement, ethics)
  • Money skills (budgeting, wealth management, investment)

Ironically, the more technology progresses, the more valuable the human element in business will become.

1 Quote to Consider

"Your social media bubble represents maybe 0.01% of what goes on in the world that affects you and likely closer to 0.000000001% of what goes on in the world at large."
