It is a live, one-to-one (via teleconference!) training with a Master Coach.

Just you, working one-on-one with a trained, experienced coach, sharing their wisdom and making sure that you are learning the concepts.

I’ve spoken to several people that have gone through the training like this and they are thrilled!

It’s NOT the End of Facebook


fb_icon_325x325We’ve all seen changes to the behavior of our Facebook news feeds…You may notice that your news feed has less variety and you may barely see updates from farther flung facebook friends, you know, 4F’s ;).  Miss someone’s birthday, oh no!

For businesses, panic may have set in…How come we aren’t reaching as many of our followers?  Ahh!  Call the paid advertisements people!

Some have even feared the end of Facebook.

No need to panic…Facebook may be on to something that may cause it to gain significant advantage over Google+ and Twitter, as argued in

Watch Out Twitter And Google+, Facebook’s News Feed Is Getting Smarter And Smarter

authored by content strategist Anthony Wing Kosner.

This is where Facebook’s genius really kicks in. Its stock valuation gives it an almost unlimited potential to improve its product through engineering.

The crucial decision that created this opportunity for Facebook was the filtering of user’s Newsfeeds.

How Much to Charge as a Coach


question-mark-moneyThis is a question I get asked a lot, and it is a good one!  Your rates will form a fundamental part of your coaching business, it’s success, and the satisfaction of your clients.

First, some things that are true in coaching, IMO, that may not necessarily be true in other businesses:

1) Your rate has to work for you, the coach.  If it doesn’t work for you, you won’t be able to deliver effective coaching.

2) Your clients will be more invested, and see coaching as more valuable, if they are making an investment.

3) Coaching is a very specialized service.  You are providing something very valuable, and very intimate.  It should be priced accordingly.

4) Most coaches will want no more than 20 full time (weekly or semi-weekly) clients, in order to have time for professional development.

5) It is ESSENTIAL that you be free from financial worry in order to coach effectively.

If you want help setting your rate, contact me for a complimentary Rate Power coaching session!
