Every now and then I get pissed off by an e-mail sent to me. It doesn’t happen very often, perhaps once every six months or so, but it does happen. And when it does, it’s nearly always because of the same reason.
Deciding to give all my ebooks away on Saturday was an impulse decision that I didn’t really think through. I was in on my own as the wife had taken the dogs out
It took me 6 months of going backward and forward and many hours of work to finally get to interview Robin Sharma.
Initially his PA sent me a form with some questions and I presumed this was to get a feel for my audience size and whether the site was relevant to Robins work.
Apparently I passed the criteria and was asked to submit my questions.
I did so and then I waited.
It seems to me most people like to think they are open-minded. In 6 years years of being a Life Coach I have only ever had one client tell me they were close-minded and that was so shocking to me I can still clearly remember it.
And it’s not that the conversation doesn’t arise regularly either. When I do values work with a client I always ask them to explain to me what their
Everybody knows it’s not good business form to tell people when things aren’t going as well as you would like because you can look like a real whiner.

I could use phrases and expressions such as Life Coach, Life Coaching and self development and Google could spot them and think:
“Hmm, this guy seems to be a Life Coach, maybe we should send him people looking to hire a Life Coach”

On February 4th 2006 , along with my wife Helen and my doberman Ellie, we left the UK for good.
We had talked about emigrating for years as we both loved the US, but finally it happened and I can still remember thinking how surreal it all seemed.
Since we moved here, we have never felt less than 100% welcome. Sure I have had the occasional insult hurled at me based on my nationality, but
As I gaze round my office I see lots of Life Coaching and self development books that I’ve read and probably won’t again, or have never read and almost certainly never will.
It seems a shame to let them go to waste (even the ones I bought myself) so today I thought I’d dive into the Black Friday spirit and look to do a sale and help other people into the bargain.
Before I tell
I once fell off a motorcycle at fairly slow speed. I’m guessing I was going less than 20 mph as I went to take a corner because I had already spotted a patch of loose gravel and slowed thinking it may pose a problem.
Pose a problem it did, as next thing I know I’m sliding sideways down the road one way as the bike and my passenger went the other. The accident resulted in
