Potential coaches grapple with the fear of leaving behind a secure job for the “unpredictable” world of coaching, questioning whether their knowledge is marketable and if they can truly make a living out of their passion. They often struggle to get started because they’re stuck wondering: how do I pivot my career and reinvent myself as a coach?

And this path is possible for almost anyone. Don offers real-world insight to help future coaches see the incredible potential to use what they know to make a great living and create a life they love. Listen in and learn how you, too, can turn your expertise into a profitable coaching business!
