  • Climbed the corporate ladder
  • How unhappy I was in my marriage
  • The judgments I had about people who did self-help, and how those people cracked my cynicism

  • The big sacrifice I made to pursue coaching
  • Spent years diving into the coaching world
  • How I built the world’s largest coaching business
