How did I get started?
I always felt there was something different I should be doing, even though I truly enjoyed my career as a professional ballroom dancer, coach and adjudicator. Many of my clients and friends always sought advice on issues they were experiencing, and I was always the go to guy. I really enjoyed this so it was natural for me to transition to life coaching.
How often should clients have sessions?
I suggest at least once a week. I do have some who come in twice per week, and some who ask for 3 plus, but I don’t recommend this as they often need time to work through the information from the last session.
What do I do?
I refer to myself as a lifestyle engineer... meaning I help my clients design and implement strategies to accomplish theirs goals, be it personal or business. I also work to help my clients develop confidence, overcome shyness, quit addiction and very importantly, learn to say no or yes, without fear! I help my clients to discover their strengths.
Why did someone come to me recently?
One of my most recent client was having difficulty getting her business off the ground. She has all the qualifications necessary to be successful, but she was at a loss as to what tools she has and how to use them. My role was to guide her to acknowledge and implement her strengths as well as some of what she thought of as weaknesses. Update:(Mar 15th 2021) She signed a lease last month, opened a week ago and signed 3 new clients! Yeah!!
Why do I do this? How did I get here?
It comes naturally. I truly enjoy working with people to help them have a better life. I have over 30 years experience in business and sales as well as Teaching and Counselling.
What are my goals?
My goals are to help as many people as I can, while learning and growing myself.
