A life coach needs to know life, right?
How can you trust someone who does not understand you? Right?
How can you trust someone who has not experienced the hard knocks of life come and tell you how to live yours?
How does a qualification and a printed certificate proving you are a life coach give you the right to tell me how to live MY life and how to overcome MY obstacles? RIGHT AGAIN?
You are absolutely right!
That is why we, my wife and I, can honestly say, “We understand.”
Here is why, in a nutshell…
A few years ago, I was completely down in the dumps, sitting on the beach with my only possessions being the clothes on my back. Today I am married to a beautiful wife, who is also my business partner. We have several successful businesses. Here they are in a nutshell:
My wife and I started a business from the ground up with ABSOLUTELY NO MONEY! I am a successfully published author on crime and criminal behavior. I am the author and supplier of a full range of firearm learning material to several training providers across the country. This makes me one of only a handful of lead service providers on firearm training providers across the country. I provide guidance, motivation, mentoring and a full accreditation plan to new and existing providers. due to our professional value added service, we are the sought after provider by some of the major security companies in the country. We worked hard to establish a successful business with many facets in just over 4 years. Today, we are the directors of 4 companies, among others, the International Shooters’ Network. Both my wife and I have been through a lot of bad spots in our lives, before and after we met. This in turn, allowed us to grow into the people we are today. Successful in all areas of our lives. Yes, we do have hiccups and stumble blocks, but we works through them to achieve success at the other end. Many people cross our path on a regular basis, and since we are oozing positivity, no-one leaves unchanged. Not even us.
So, why should you trust either me or my wife as your life coach?
We know the hardships. We have experienced most of them. (One day we will tell you our story). My wife and I both have counselled many who knocked on our door over the years. Today, we are both qualified Life Coaches as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapists and Ordained Ministers. Our extensive client base stretches far beyond borders. Many of our clients communicate via phone or email. We are not saying that we are better than anyone else (or any other life coach or psychologist, doctor, etc.) What we do know: We understand depression, Post Traumatic Stress (So this is where you ask: “What does he know about PTSD?” Let me answer you like this: ” In short: Trust me, I do. Without all the La-di-da and impressive or hair-raising stories, I do. Yes, my journey over the last 30 grown-up years have a couple of those, but this is an open blog to guide you, not the next box-office hit horror.
You might ask yourself: “But do the memories ever go away?” Not completely? Who would want to forget the good times? But, the haunting does go away. The hurt from the past, negativity, and many more. If you have the right support. They do go away. That depends on you. Are you going to dwell in the past and hold on to those memories? Good or bad?
We have overcome them all! None of the above has held us back!
The new ones? We will overcome them too. Our journey with you will be an exciting one, for all of us. Journey with us as you discover the person you are meant to be!
If I ask you right now: Who are you?
Do you immediately dwell in the past? Do immediately tell me that you come from this or that? Or will you tell me where you are going?
Will you tell me of the stumbling blocks in your life, or will you tell me of the mountain in your path that you climbed to the summit to reach even higher? !!
Are you getting left behind, dwelling in the past, or are you going to get up on the mountain and see the future? Learn from the past and DECIDE to make a difference.
This is going to be an exciting journey!
