“Oprah Winfrey has a coach. Phil Mickelson has a coach. Bill Gates has a coach. So, why shouldn’t you have one? Whether it’s a personal coach, a sports coach, a business coach, or a career transition coach, successful people enlist the assistance of these professional specialized resources. The more successful you are, the more you realize that you can’t be an expert at everything. We are all students and we’re constantly learning and growing–a coach provides the safe environment, the challenge, and the accountability to allow you to reach your maximum potential. Perhaps this is the reason that 47 percent of organizations see coaching as essential to their executive decision-making process according to a Right Management Consultants survey, and their research shows that this number grows every year.

A coach does three important things:

  • A coach creates awareness of what is and what could be possible for you
  • A coach provides the education and environment you need to examine areas of your life that hold the answer to your future; and,
  • A coach holds you accountable for your goals, needs, and expectations”
Tamara Loring:

“Gosh, there are several things a coach can do. Right? First and foremost, what they do is they create a safe space where you can learn and you can educate yourself about what the possibilities are. It’s about creating awareness. A coach’s role really isn’t to tell you what to do or what to think. But they’ll challenge you to look inwards. Many times people think just tell me you know which direction should I go? But that’s not what coaching is coaching. Trust that you have the answer within yourself, even if you don’t think you do know what you want. It helps you to do some soul searching. So what you’ll find is that a coach won’t tell you what direction to go. But they’ll ask you great questions that will allow you to discover maybe things that are holding you back, maybe limiting beliefs that you have that you didn’t even know that you had. A coach will ultimately challenge you to greatness and help you see beyond your blind spots. And yes, by definition, when you work with a coach, be careful what you’re asking for because they’re going to challenge you to get outside of your current comfort zone. And my ultimate favorite of what a coach gets to do is they help you explore and think and dream about what’s possible.”

Marissa Frois:

“I’m sure that there are those of you out there that are thinking that all sounds great but I don’t need a coach. That’s not for me, working with a coach isn’t gonna get me any more fruit than where I already am. I could do a lot of this on my own. And I really want to challenge that thinking a little bit. There’s a phrase in this chapter that I absolutely love. And it is knowledge is the only weapon against fear. Fear simply dissolves in the face of information, facts and knowledge. And I think it’s safe to say that if you aren’t experiencing a little bit of fear, when exploring possibilities, or going through a change, or trying something new, then maybe you just aren’t thinking big enough, right? Fear is common, and that’s okay. So t really challenging that thinking a bit …everyone and anyone really benefit from working with a coach.”

Melissa Pang:

“I always go back to coaching in fitness, like a personal trainer, or someone like that. And I think that we all can agree, that we settle into comfort zones. And whether you know it or not, there’s always room to grow and to go past that. It’s not like you have to make any major decisions or anything. do you know what you want? Wouldn’t it be great to know something you don’t know right now? What if you knew more about yourself that can impact the future trajectory of your life. My question is, why not? Why not talk to a coach.”

More About This Podcast:


You are painfully aware that the job market has changed dramatically in the last 25 years with more and more layoffs every time there is a downward shift in the economy, with jobs being lost to cheaper labor in other countries and entire industries moving overseas. We have been living in the Career Revolution era where job security no longer exists and pension plans are a thing of the past. Our families, our income, our emotional wellbeing, and the way we must plan for the future have all been drastically affected. Maybe there have been cutbacks in your company. Maybe you have been lucky enough to have survived them but wonder when your turn is coming. Or maybe you didn’t survive the latest layoff and are currently unemployed or underemployed, or perhaps you have even joined the unemployable ranks. Increased levels of fears and uncertainty in today’s workplace don’t leave much room for inspiration or empowerment. In fact, when was the last time you felt inspired or empowered? Think back to when you were a child and the possibilities were endless. You felt you could do anything. You felt empowered, right?


You could dare to dream because failure was not even an option.

You had the ability to focus on the end goal and not on the obstacles in your way. It’s time to regain that ability and redefine your goals. Where is your professional future headed? Are you on track? Will your current path take you where you want to go? This book is the starting point of your journey towards self-sufficiency and financial freedom. Together we will build the framework to define your goals, needs, and expectations, and assist you in determining the proper vehicle to help you attain them.
