Describe your approach to coaching.
Every client has a story to tell. I get my clients talk about their past and then give it a name. We then create a new title for the future. The client talks about their possibilities.

What makes your coaching unique?
My coaching is all about my client’s self-discovery which then determines their path. I don’t tell them what needs to be done, I simply ask questions that make them think deeply and hold their hands along the journey.

Why did you start coaching? What was your inspiration for getting started?
It was through a meetup group and I was asked to be the “Master Accountability Partner”. The host told me to do some “Fearless Living”. I had no idea what that meant so I Googled it. That’s when all of Rhonda Britten’s material popped up. I read through everything and realized that this was my calling. I wanted to become a coach specializing in overcoming people’s fears and help them realize their dreams.

What do you enjoy most about coaching? What’s the most challenging part of coaching?
What I enjoy about coaching is seeing the transformation of my clients. The most challenging part is where my client has paid good money to want to change their life, but is not willing to partake in the process. You want to tell the client what to do, but that is not what coaching is about. Sometimes you need to “fire” the client as they’re not coachable.

What is one of your own most memorable coaching moments (coaching someone else)?
I had a client who wanted to make tons of money so that he could then travel to Las Vegas and learn how to pick up women. Through our coaching sessions, he realized that making an outrageous amount of money was not possible and was an excuse to meeting women. He eventually discovered that he was afraid to speak to women. After a few more coaching session, he was able to take little steps and start conversing with women. It’s interesting how “Fear” works.

What is one of your own most memorable personal coaching moments (being coached)?
One of the processes that was taught to me is the “Life Log”. I used to spend 3 or 4 hours a day playing “Candy Crush” and once I realized how much time I had wasted, I went cold turkey. I now use my time more effectively in creating value for myself and others.

Do you have any advice for new coaches?
Let the work, work you. Be yourself. See the innocence in your clients and don’t have any judgments. Don’t tell your clients what to do. Ask questions that get your clients to learn more about themselves and help guide them to their possibilities.

When you are not working, what do you like to do?
I love to read (or preferably listening to audiobooks). I also spend time with my family, biking, and hiking.

What is the biggest milestone in your career so far?
In July I was at my master coach’s retreat in San Antonio and was the recipient of the “Dedicated to a Fearless World” award.

What book or resource do you most often recommend to clients?
Fearless Living by Rhonda Britten.

Who most represents success to you?
People who confront fear by taking action.

What fuels your day?
Knowing that one day I will reach my goal of changing 1,000,000 lives in helping people live their dreams.
