FAQ’s

What is Success Coaching?

Success coaching is the process of engaging an outside mentor that guides and holds you accountable through a challenge or goal you would like to tackle. The coaching process helps you to identify a vision for your life and future, set specific, measurable goals, create a plan for action, handle potential obstacles, and implement action steps that get results. A coach is NOT a counselor or therapist, but a guide or mentor who helps you create the best plan based on your needs and holds you accountable to complete what you started.

My motto is “If you succeed, I succeed… So my mission is to ensure you succeed!”

Is Coaching the same thing as Counseling or Therapy?

Coaching should not be confused with counseling or therapy. If you feel that you need professional counseling or psychological therapy, please seek a trained and accredited professional in that field.

Is Coaching for me?

The best coaching clients are those who sincerely want, are open and willing to make necessary change, transform or improve some aspect about themselves or their lifestyles right now. They are open-minded to listen to outside points of view from their coach to empower the necessary change and transformation they seek. In my experience the most successful coaching clients also exhibit the following traits: the Desire, Discipline, and Commitment to transform themselves.

If you’re still not sure whether coaching is right for you at this time, or you’d like to learn more about my process, set up a free 15-minute consultation with me and I’ll address your questions and concerns, see below.

Will I get results?

You are 100% responsible for your decisions and actions. Therefore, the results are completely in your control. If you want to make change and improve your current condition, only you can make that happen. That’s why in my experience the best and most successful coaching clients have the Desire, Discipline, and Commitment to change/improve. Achieving any goal is really mastering both the Inner game as well as taking Outward Action. Understanding that both parts are essential is vital to guaranteeing successful and sustained results you want.

That being said, I will do my best part to help you succeed. My job is not to be a friend, but to push you to obtain the results you desire! As I said before, if you succeed, I succeed! That’s why I’m a Success Coach!

Is there a typical time-frame for Coaching?

I typically require a minimum 3 month commitment. My experience has found that the most effective change occurs over at least a few months. In many cases, my clients need to reprogram decades of limiting beliefs and behaviors that have been sabotaging their success, and that usually takes more than one or two sessions. But it’s so worth it! As the saying goes, no pain no gain!

In some cases, such as a special fast-track coaching program, or individual sessions by special request, I will do less than a 3-month commitment. If you put forth maximum effort and achieve a specific goal in a shorter time period, then we will celebrate your success sooner! The more desire, commitment and discipline you have to complete a goal, I have found the faster it is accomplished and the greater the results.

What does a typical coaching program look like?

We start with a 60-90 min introductory session to clarify your vision, and set specific goals both professionally and personally. The second session will dive deeper into which goal(s) you would like to prioritize, and we’ll create a plan-for-action for each goal. Each successive session we will review your goals, action steps and what has and hasn’t worked from the previous session. I may recommend outside reading material, programs or other resources that I feel may complement or accelerate the process. When you have completed an important milestone, we will also make sure to celebrate!

What area(s) do you specialize in?

I work mainly with entrepreneurs and professionals who are passionate about their work and want to live their lives to the fullest. Most of my clients request professional/career success coaching to either earn more income, get promoted or start-up/improve their business. I can also assist you with more specific areas such as career transition, personal transformation, discovering your purpose/mission, overcoming fears/self-sabotage, and grieving loss* (this list is not exclusive). I have been a student of all of these areas and learned from the best… and I have also personally experienced all these areas multiple times, as well as the experiences of my clients, and therefore can provide additional expertise. If there is something specific you need help with, feel free to discuss it with me. If I am not qualified to assist you on a specific matter, I will recommend you to another resource that may help.

[*Please note I am not a therapist, however, can assist with grief and loss based on previous study and experience both in my own life and that of clients]

What does “F.A.B.” mean?

I call myself the “F.A.B. Coach”(TM) because I feel that my coaching falls under 3 main areas:

-Financial Freedom, or attaining wealth and professional/business success;

-Awareness, the understanding of the mind-body-spirit connection within yourself and with others; and

-Balance, achieving harmony, happiness and the ability to be successful in all areas of your life, both personally and professionally.
