Why You Need to Be One Step Ahead



 

I want to tell you a story of something that happened to me in Brazil 25 years ago that taught me a ton as I was getting started as a coach.

Why You Need to Drain the Swamp



 

Today, I want to talk to you about draining the swamp. I came down to the pool for a swim, and when I got there, it was kind of empty. And so, on Thursdays, clearly is the day that the local government comes and empties out the pool.

Why You Need to Get Your Clients Together (And What to Do When You Finally Do)



 

I don’t know whether you coach your clients 1:1 or whether you coach them in groups, or whether you have products or training courses.
