How Do You Continue To Grow As A Coach?

Have you ever thought to yourself how amazing the coaching profession would be…if you didn’t have any difficult athletes, staff, or administrators to deal with?

Coaching is 90% how you relate to people and how they relate to you.

Overcome July 1st Overwhelm: 5 Secrets To A More Peaceful Approach

"I've got so much to do!"  "I've got so many calls to make!"  "I don't know how I'm ever going to fit it all in!"  "Why can't I just have a little more time?"

This is a MINDSET issue.

What you focus on expands

Every day when you wake up and take in a new breath of air, you have two choices. You can focus on the negative or the positive.  Sure, it's tempting to think about how tired you feel, how little sleep you got, or something that you are NOT looking forward to in your day.
