Where you are now in your life is not where you want to be. It’s likely that you've had a few moments like this in your life. In particular, this year might be one of those years where you're really ready for change. And if you're like me, you're a self-starter and you have probably been working at this change for a long time on your own by reading books, Googling, watching videos, brainstorming in your notebook, listening to podcasts... I have done all of them. I have signed up for seminars, I've gone to retreats, I've been to trainings. But I want to tell you that the number one thing that has helped me was also the hardest thing to sign up for. 

So I'm going to teach you a little bit today about how to know if you should make that big leap and begin to work with a coach in real life. That's a really big decision to make. It's a huge investment. You are worth it, but it's a very tricky kind of consumer problem to solve of how to enter this big, huge, confusing industry that is not regulated and it's hard to tell who's good. How do I find somebody that's actually worth my dime and invest in myself? So, wherever you are in this process, this episode is here to guide you.
