Motto: You can have anything you want, if you're willing to do the work to get it.
I believe that everyone has most of the answers they are looking for inside of them. When we don't have the answers, we need someone to help us identify new sources and resources of skills, development, and growth. In order for those new sources to be effective and profitable, they must meld with the natural course of our beliefs and personality. A coach's role is to help bring forward the wisdom that is inside, and to introduce new thoughts for consideration.
