Personal Coaching

Why use a personal coach? It’s always been interesting to me to see how most people put a lot more time and money into maintaining their own vehicle than they would ever think of investing in themselves. Then at the end of the year they wonder why their car or truck runs better than they do.

The International Coaching Federation surveyed several thousand coaching clients for feedback about the value of using a coach. The resulting study revealed that all who were coached had a positive change in personal work habits that improved their business during a recession. Here are a few facts for you to chew on:


1. 62% became smarter at goal-setting

2. 60% had more balanced life

3. 57% had lower stress levels

4. 52% had more confidence

5. 25% made up to 42% more income

I work on the gap between where you are now and where you would like to be. This is the challenge for all coaches. Deep within each of us there is an inner fire pushing us to lead a life of greatness and contribution. Albert Switzer said “In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” I know I am.

It happened to me 20 years ago when I was stuck in my personal and professional life at same time. The company I was working for wasn’t doing what I wanted and neither was my first wife. My challenge was getting them to do what I wanted them to do; I thought, how hard can that be? I kept looking over my shoulder for them to get with my program and do it! If they had changed to become what I wanted them to be, I could have saved myself a lot of hard work over the past 20 years. But this has allowed me to grow into the person I am today – better able to coach you and others. I have shared with others what I’ve learned, that your inner power comes from accepting the things you cannot change and having the courage to change the things you can, and wisdom from God to know the difference.


“I want to thank you for all the ‘positive changes’ that have occurred in my life since I have been coaching with you. I especially appreciate your help in discovering what truly makes me tick, for I had to make some serious decisions with my personal and professional life. Through all your valuable questions and assessments I discovered more of who I was and where I needed to go. Now I feel confident that I have made the right decisions for my family and I. I highly recommend you to anyone who wants to grow.” - Jason Bean, Owner, Ideal Painting Company
