Why work with Me as your coach?

These principles are:

 

Be kind

Be Respectful

Demonstrate Value

Build relationships rather than customers

Hold yourself responsible and accountable

Follow a plan

Get up Get Dressed and get to work

Never embarrass anyone

Value true friendships

Seek  win-win situations

Listen more than you speak...Unless you're the coach :)
