    S3:EP11: "Hell yes. Hell no. Maybe"

    S3:EP11: "Hell yes. Hell no. Maybe"

    Today I coached Catherine. Catherine is a member of 4PC, she is a top performer, she is an estate attorney by background, and she has a business that makes millions. She is really making an impact on people's lives, helping them create an amazing future for themselves and their children.
    She has had a taste of coaching and loves it! But she is sucked into those things that drain her of energy in her business. So, I teach her a tool that I call "Hell yes. Hell No. Maybe."
    It will transform her business, it will transform her leadership team, and it will transform the life of all of them as they get more and more away from the "hell nos" and more and more into the "hell yeses" for their life and their business.
    I tell her a story too about another tool called "the avoid at all costs list," which is a game changer. She has this insight that has her say "wow," and then we are there.
    Enjoy.

    S3:EP10: "I made over $90 million in sales but I was struggling to get clients..."

    S3:EP10: "I made over $90 million in sales but I was struggling to get clients..."

    Today's episode isn't a coaching session. It's a very honest conversation with one of my Protégés.
    Before becoming a coach, Mark Silverman generated over $90 million in complex tech sales in the corporate world and worked at numerous rapid growth startups.
    He sought me out as his coach and he became a member of my community.
    Mark is now making over $200K a year as a coach and working with dream clients. His first book sold over 50,000 copies and he is working on his second. However, it definitely was not always like this.
    Once he began working with me, he quite quickly created a 6-figure income but that didn't cover the expenses of his former lifestyle. And he went through quite a challenging time for a while.
    Listen to the end and you’re here Mark share about the frightening moment when he realized he was spending more money from cashing in his 401(k) than from coaching income…
    Mark asked me if he could share the – very raw and real – ups and downs of his story with you and I immediately said yes.
    Most coaches I meet who have come from the corporate world are very clear that they want to leave it behind. But a handful still love the world they come from and Mark’s success as a coach transforms the moment he has the insight, “I love wearing a suit. And I love to work in glass buildings!”

    S3:EP09: "How do you run 120 miles?"

    S3:EP09: "How do you run 120 miles?"

    This was fascinating. In today's episode you are going to hear me coaching Angela.
    Angela used to work for the United Nations, for UNESCO and she is based in Paris. She is a woman who has done extraordinary things in her life.
    She runs 180 Kilometer races, ultra marathons, almost 120 miles. She doesn't like to do things by halves. Even when she is taking on a mission she can't take on just one, she takes on a number at the same time.
    I coach her around her next big mission.
    It was really fun. Enjoy!

    S3:EP08: "Do you make your clients cry?"

    S3:EP08: "Do you make your clients cry?"

    I begin every coaching session with two secret beliefs:
    You are far more powerful than you know. Especially if you've already accomplished things that impress most people. Tears are a release of emotion. And if I can create a safe enough space, my clients will cry when they share things with me they never shared with another living soul.  I begin this coaching session with one of my favorite coaching questions: “What would make this an extraordinary conversation?”
    Kristen's reply was intellectually engaging but I couldn't feel her. So, I know we need to dive deep...
    Like all my clients, Kristen is a top performer with a track record of success. She’s a retired television executive who founded a non-profit that has brought clean water to over 100,000 people in developing countries.
    And as I dive in, Kristen shares things with me that she’s never shared before. In fact, she’s moved to tears. She leaves the conversation with an insight that will make a massive impact in her life and in the lives of her clients.
    As you listen to the conversation, pay attention to two things:
    The moments of insight on my client's side.  The moments on my side where I choose when to dive deep. What do you notice about what I see, hear or feel that give me clues in which direction to go? Please share your insights with me.
    And let me know where you are more powerful than you know...

    S3:EP07: "A life changing phone call"

    S3:EP07: "A life changing phone call"

    A single insight can completely change your life, and that insight can come in many forms. Rich’s came in the form of a phone call, a phone call that he duplicates for his client today. Luisa is a consultant and understands business at the highest levels. Her hope is to work with Rich on the idea of doing something fun and big while using her genius. Rich shares a story about the phone call that saw him commit to something fully though he knew nothing about it. By turning their conversation into that phone call, Rich is able to give Luisa a sense of mission and a way to give back. Her one moment of insight has her on a path and nothing can stop her!
     
    In today’s episode:
    Doing whatever it takes when you are committed to something Rich’s life-changing phone call Bringing possibility to groups of people that don’t know it’s coming Knowing that you don’t have to do the journey alone Luisa’s life story and how she developed her beliefs Being held back by the fears and the what-ifs Who’s on the other side of the life-changing phone call Allowing yourself to be moved so that you can move others

    S3:EP06: "A thousand dollar cheeseburger"

    S3:EP06: "A thousand dollar cheeseburger"

    Coaching is about more than having a coaching business. For most of human history, it wasn’t called coaching, it was called leadership. Rich’s guest today, Shelley Paxton, has spent her entire career as a leader. Shelley is the former Chief Marketing Officer for Harley Davidson, one of the most iconic brands on the planet. Her book is going to be published in January by Simon and Schuster, a mainstream publisher. She is wondering how she can craft the funnel for her business. However, Rich doesn’t like the word funnel, especially for a rebel like Shelley. So, he helps her to create a rebellious program by putting a thousand-dollar cheeseburger on her menu. Don’t know what that means? Well, Rich is going to tell you all about it! If you are crafting out a business and want to know what to put out as opportunities for people to work with you then this is really fun!
     
    In today’s episode:
    What it means to be Chief Soul Officer of your own life Creating a way for people to work with you even when your bucket is full Importance of blocking off time for yourself Separating from what society says you are supposed to do Having a thousand-dollar cheeseburger on your menu Why you shouldn’t be nervous about pricing when it is high Reminding yourself that people will pay for what they will pay for How limitation creates real value The difference in strength between present-day self vs. future self Recognizing your own zone of genius Distinguishing between work that will drain us and energize us
