What is a Life Coach?

A Life Coach is an expert in a particular field who can skillfully guide you to success.
Coaches serve as your advisor and consultant, a friend with a fresh perspective.
A coach does not tell you what to do, but rather helps you stay focused as you pursue your goals.
A coach provides encouragement, resources, tools, teaches skills, and then gets out of your way!

Coaching is done in person, on the phone, and through email and text.
