If you’re reading this website, you typically have a big problem you want to get fixed. You already know exactly what that problem is and you’ve probably already struggling to fix it on your own. If you are struggling to beat it on your own, coaching can be the difference between success and failure.
Here’s how coaching can help you.
It gives you a plan
When you’re in the middle of your own troubled situation, you’re often going to be so caught up with the stress and emotions that you can’t come up with a real plan of action to fix it. Most people get locked into a mindset of continuing to tolerate whatever is wrong because they don’t know what else to do. You being really mad about something and you having a real plan to fix a problem are two different things.
Looking in from the outside, Athol is a master at sorting through tangled messes and coming up with an immediate plan of action to start fixing your situation.
It gives you accountability
Having a good plan is great, but it’s not the same thing as actually following through on it.
Having another person checking in on you and holding you accountable to follow through on your plan is a huge influence on success. It’s just like going to the gym, if you are going with a friend or have personal training appointments, you’re more likely to stick with it than if you’re just going by yourself.
What Athol can do is help keep you on track, motivating you and pushing you forward faster than if you just tried to go it alone.
Needing a Reality Check
Or maybe you feel like you’re going crazy in the middle of your tangled mess.
Or you want to know there’s a realistic hope the situation can be fixed.
That’s where the reality check of a coaching call can be extremely helpful. Athol will help sort out clarify how much of the situation is fixable by you, how much is really their problem to fix, and whether or not it can be fixed.
In most cases, the situation is fixable and knowing that it is, can be a huge boost in hope and purpose in getting your life back under control. You surge ahead rather than quitting because you’re too tired to go further.
And sometimes it’s the opposite. It’s broken beyond belief and the odds are heavily stacked against you. In almost every case like this, the caller already knows that it’s an impossible situation, but hearing an objective person confirm that can be an enormous relief. You won’t feel crazy after talking to Athol.
One Hour Call $149
The One Hour Call is great for triaging your situation and coming up with that initial plan of something to get started on right now. This is a great call to figure out a Plan and get a Reality Check.
If you know you can follow through yourself, this may be all the coaching you need. You’re not going to be locked into something you can’t get out of. About 60% of coaching clients just do a single One Hour Call and another 10% do a second One Hour Call.
The 12-Week Guided MAP $1197
The 12-Week Guided MAP starts with an in depth whole-life questionnaire, and comes up with a deeper plan of action than a One Hour Call can. Calls are weekly and are great for accountability as coach and client tweak the plan on the fly in response to how it’s all playing out. The situation can be very fluid when real change gets started.
Each week we come up with “the three monkeys” of three specific things to focus on for this week. Any more than three things to focus on and it all tends to flounder
Calls are weekly for 12 weeks, and if you started with a One Hour Call, the $149 is applied to the 12-week package. We bill $399 x3 months. If you have a critical situation and are facing some sort of time limit to get things under control, this may well be the best money you spend your whole life.
How are the calls done?
Calls are via phone or Skype. We can also do Google Hangouts.
How do I pay?
We invoice via PayPal. You’ll get an email and you can pay with any credit or debit card or your own PayPal money. You don’t need a PayPal account yourself. We never see your credit card information.
When are calls done? Do I have to be in the United States?
We’re in the same time zone as New York, and calls can start anytime Monday-Wednesday, from 9am to 9pm.
Calls can be from anywhere in the world via Skype, or if calling a phone internationally, we typically call via Skype to your phone with no additional charge.
Do you coach couples? Can we both be on the call?
Yes we do. There’s no additional charge for the One Hour Call for a couple.
There is significantly more effort for the coach with a couple on a 12-Week package, so there is an additional charge of $100 per month for couples on the 12-Week package.
If I do a 12-Week Package and like it, do I have to stop after 12 weeks?
We’ve found that the 12 week program is ideal for most situations. It requires a sense of commitment and motivation for the client to begin it, and that’s also a positive factor in how successful it is.
That being said, if you like it and you think there’s more you can accomplish through coaching, it’s easy enough to continue on for as many 12-Week sessions as we both think is effective. There are a handful of small-to-medium business owner clients who have continued on for over a year of coaching, having experienced positive business gains as well.
