FINAL WORDS

I can only help you in this process, as much as you are willing to be honest and open with me. I can only alter your plan based on what you tell me, and if what you tell me isn’t the whole story, you probably won’t get the BEST plan for where you are at, which stalls progress. I am here to help you, not judge you. Tell me what really happened, so we can navigate the best course of action. After all, coaching IS largely about accountability.

You came into this process because you want to change. Which means you will have to change:) Please, be willing to try new things, mess up and get a little dirty. Seriously, this process WILL NOT work if you aren’t willing to get both feet wet! One toe in is not enough. You can’t continue to do things the way you always have and expect a different result (remember…that is the definition of insanity)

Ask for help when you need it! It is not a sign of weakness, it is an act of courage! I can’t help you, if I don’t know that you are struggling.

That's it! You made it. Now, sign below with me and let's get started!
