How is working with you any different from any coach?


I really don't like to compare myself to other coaches. You're investing in yourself first, so of course you want to shop around.

I succeed because I continue to fail. Let that sink in. You have to give into fear if you want to see change. If you invest, I'll do my best to get you across the finish line - even if you have to kicking and screaming. (Just a joke)
