Coach Mentoring

Work with Eric Maisel to build your coaching practice.

A coach can spend all of his or her time doing the “recommended things” and still not get a practice going. Building a practice is work, time is short, and it’s easy to get sidetracked and obsessed with “the perfect website” or “effectively using Twitter and Facebook.” What’s best for you? What will really work for you?

Isn’t it time to figure that out?

+ An initial two-month commitment

+ $150/month (1 45-minute phone session and email coaching throughout the month)

+ Start any time

+ Re-up for two-month increments

Get started now! Or begin when you like! (We’ll firm up your start date after payment.)

If you have any problem paying electronically or if you get an error message, please drop webmaster Ron Wheatley rwheatley33@hotmail.com a message and we’ll check it out! And you can always pay by check!

Many people—life coaches, therapists, yoga teachers, academics, artists, and folks from all walks of life—are looking for a way to help others, interact with others, and teach something really valuable.
