Some people are coaches: they’ve trained, they’re certified, and they have a gold leafed diploma on their wall. They are experts in their field, and that is a wonderful thing.
That’s great. They’ve worked their asses off, and they’re great at what they do. Please, feel free to give them your business.
However, for the majority of people who use the title “coach,” this is not the case. People think that just because they’re in the multi-level marketing world, that they are a coach.
Coach means expert. It means that you have studied and refined your craft, and that you can help others do the same.
The word “coach” is used so loosely these days that everyone is a damn coach. Underqualified people are abusing this title and taking money right out of your pocket. Let me give it to you straight- this is exploitive, manipulative, and downright wrong.
Most people who say they are coaches are not.
And I’m not either.
But that does not mean the work I can do with you is any less valuable.
I want you to take a moment and think about something for me. What if there was a completely different framework than the one that these phony coaches have to offer? What if we completely shifted our paradigms? What if instead of following around anyone offering us empty promises of wealth and good fortune, we looked inside ourselves?
Here is something these so called “coaches” do not want you to do.When you look inside yourself for answers, you will find everything you need to succeed.You will find your infinite power, and this is very, very dangerous for fake coaches.
If you knew all you could do on your own, if you stepped into your own power instead of following around anyone who says they can fix your problems for you, these phony coaches would lose all their business.
I’m not here to promise you some get rich quick scheme, and I’m not here to tell you the answers lie with me.
They lie within you. You just have to get off your ass and work for them. And I’m here to inspire you to do it.
I don’t want to be your coach. I want to be an inspiration and walk along side with you.
I want to go on this journey with you. I want to help you step into your own power, professionally and personally.
I’m not the expert and I’m not the guru. What I am is a successful woman who goes hard every single day and can help you find it in you to do the same. Believe me, I have made mistakes. I have faltered. But did I let it get me down? Hell no.
What I’m offering you is not my expertise, but what I’ve learned from my own life. I want to be your inspiration. I want you to look at me and see how far I’ve come, and know that you are capable of that too.
I’ll just come out and say it. I am not qualified to call myself an expert or a coach. But what I am qualified to do is so much better.
I am qualified as a motivator, and I am qualified as a public speaker, (and a damn good one at that.) I can be your cheerleader, your encourager. I can help you access the tools you already have to change your life.
But do you know what i’m not?
You guessed it. (Do I really need to say it again?)
I am not your f****** coach.
