Work with a coach! A fitness coach, a relationship coach or a financial planning coach are trained and certified professionals who can help you set goals and then reach them. Coaches provide you with the tools, support, and structure to accomplish more. Ask friends for referrals or find them on the Internet. They will be listed in your state's Coaching Association by category. Things to consider before hiring a coach are: A. Is the Coach affiliated with a professional organization, if so which one?
B. What is the Coach's educational background, expertise, certification areas, and training?
C. Does the Coach respond to your inquiry in a timely manner?
D. Does the Coach offer a complimentary sample session?
E. Do you feel comfortable with the Coach and his or her style?
F. Are you ready to be held accountable for your actions—in other words, are YOU ready for coaching?
