The Value of Coaching

Growing up were you involved in sports or some kind of extracurricular activity?  Do you remember having that special coach or mentor who greatly impacted your life?  Did their words of wisdom and informed perspective provide insights to you that resulted in improvement, achievement, the ability to overcome and success?  I can remember Coach J in my life.  He came alongside me during my teenage years and the input he provided along with the example he lived were deeply impactful. I am grateful to Roger, a retired executive who became a regular part of my life as I met with him weekly for several years during some particularly challenging times in my business life.  His steady influence and regular engagement with me contributed to much success.

The value of coaching is emphasized in Scripture in Proverbs 15:22:

“Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.”

Understanding this truth from Scripture as well as from my own personal experience, I relish the opportunity to engage with other men who find themselves facing a particular decision or perhaps are in a season of life where they too could profit from a personal coach.

Coaching can benefit everyone, but not every coach is for every person.  My unique skills, passions, values and traits have been honed through my own experiences and God’s lessons and as such, they may serve to benefit you in a particular area of life. To find out though, let’s talk.  I’d enjoy the opportunity to hear what makes you tick, what are the issues you are encountering and if there is some value I might bring to your life to enable your plans to succeed. If those plans are not as clear as you’d like them to be, I’d be honored to assist you in developing the clarity you seek.


My mission through Awake to Freedom is to assist motivated individuals in discovering and engaging their unique gifts and passions so they can prosper financially, grow their influence, progress spiritually and Awake to Freedom.  To achieve this mission I offer a variety of coaching options that can be customized to your particular life situation.

As an entrepreneur myself, I understand the need to be “in charge” but I also comprehend the associated challenges with such a need.  Whether it’s marketing, growing and administering the business, or perhaps juggling the cash flow implications of an entrepreneurial enterprise, the tasks, demands and personal pressures are immense.  Going it alone will only contribute to the stress and perhaps even result in failure.  But engaging a personal coach will not only alleviate the pressure but is sure to equip you to avoid upcoming roadblocks and may potentially accelerate the achievement of your end goals.

Whether you are leading a significant public company or the head of a private, family-owned business, many of the challenges that you face are the same. Beyond the fast-paced schedules, the demands of corporate administration or the stress of managing people, you may need to see the forest, not just the trees. Or perhaps you’ve focused more of your energies at the ten thousand foot level resulting in critical details and relationships slipping. Whether it’s personal introspection, long term goal setting, launching a new business idea or a product, or fine tuning your existing business, personal one on one coaching can make the difference between success and failure.

If the career you find yourself in is not all you envisioned or expected, or if the field of study you pursued is not one that offers what you are seeking then this coaching option may be for you. Through a proven scientific process, we are able to thoroughly analyze who you are, what your strengths are, and how you best operate. Understanding these facts will provide you with clear insights into how to apply your God designed passions and gifts in a lifelong calling that offers greater prosperity, fulfillment, and freedom.
