Coaching works.

I’ve been coaching clients one-on-one for a few years, as readers have noted from my references to clients. I’ve coached nearly a hundred clients by now, most of whom found me through word of mouth.

I added a new coaching page to this site to help people find coaching with me.


My clients succeed. That’s why I love coaching. You can achieve more too.

Because coaching works. I have a coach who helps me

  • Identify my priorities
  • Tell me how I look from an outside perspective (the one person you can’t see from another person’s perspective is yourself, the one you wish you could see that way most)
  • Hold me accountable to finishing important tasks.

I recommend you get one too. If you like my writing, think about coaching with me.

Why coaching

I also have a coach. For the reason Michael Jordan did. It works. It’s how great achievers achieve. Coaching helps you succeed. It helps with the following too.

  • Have you not found life passions yet?
  • Do you leave unfulfilled projects you care about?
  • Do you dream about projects without starting them?
  • Do you not even dream big?
  • Do your great house, job, and car leave you unfulfilled?
  • Do you want to lead?
  • Do you think if only you had a better house/job/spouse/car/etc. then you’d be happy?
  • Do you dream bigger dreams than your peers and want help making them happen?

Who gets coached by me

I’ve coached nearly a hundred clients from executives at major financial firms to college students for life, executive, and leadership coaching, even relationship and dating coaching and more to stellar reviews.

My clients tend to be just before or after the cusp of leadership -– preparing for leadership positions or recently promoted and finding their new positions require new skills books can’t teach.

Many young professionals looking for direction in their careers have found me too.

The Process

Typically we meet in person, online, or by phone weekly or bi-weekly.

The first meeting, which is free, generally covers you, your goals, my methods, and if we match. If we do, we continue. If not, you have no obligation to continue.

At ongoing meetings I help you know and refine your goals, to give you an unbiased perspective, and to hold you accountable on your progress. I usually give you exercises to help you develop between meetings.

My no-risk pay-what-you-think-it’s-worth guarantee (see below) motivates me to create satisfied customers. Your achieving your goal becomes my goal. I want to make you able to improve on your own, independently of me.

No-risk first hour

Our first trial hour is free with no obligation to continue.

The first hour is about you –- your situation, your goals, what works for you, what doesn’t work for you, and your expectations –- and us -– how we’ll work together.

If we don’t match, we don’t have to continue. You’ll probably get value from preparing for and having that conversation, so you might as well set up a call.

Pay what you think it’s worth

My clients have had such overwhelming success working with me, I offer the following no-risk offer:

If you book three months (twelve sessions) and make each session on time, at the end of the twelfth session you decide if the coaching was worth what you paid and I will refund up to 100% of what you paid.

What you won’t get

I coach because I love it, I’m good at it, and my clients see results.

You’ll get no vague or new-age anything from me (unless you request it). Everything we do will make sense. You’ll know why you do what you do. Any principle we work on I’ll explain as much as you want.

I have a single-minded focus on helping you improve your life. I can’t learn skills for you. Only you can. I help you to understand what you want and guide you there through your behavior. I hold you accountable. I have a friendly tone, but if I have to choose between being friendly and helping you improve your life, I’ll help you improve your life.
