This week’s episode of the podcast is going to be – how do I describe it – a bit different.
It all started with one simple question:
If you could give one piece of advice to a young coach or trainer, what would it be?
This had been buzzing around in my brain for a few weeks now, and as I started to outline the article for my website, I just wasn’t sure an article would do it justice.
I’m not sure how you’re going to like it (and I’m honestly quite scared to put this out there!), but here’s my first crack at long-format audio.
This week’s show is dedicated to the young coaches and trainers in our industry.
- What habits do you need to be successful?
- What are mistakes that I (and many others have made) that you can learn from?
- And perhaps most importantly, how do you achieve lasting success?
I truly hope you enjoy the show!
