A GOAL REALIZED....
Our Big Why
The path to coached|by|design inc. was not easy or simple...but what is?
My reason for launching coached|by|design inc. is pretty simple. I never wanted anyone to feel the way I did when I began a sales career in real estate. I thought I did the right things. What it didn't have, which proved to be near disastrous, was coaching and training.
After almost two years of aimless shots in the dark, I finally got smart (or smarter, at least). I realized that I didn't have the plans, skills or tools needed to really be a success. Despite the lack of knowledge, I had managed to succeed on small levels. I was lucky enough to have a strong Sphere of Influence (even if I didn't know what that was at the time) and I wasn't shy. Thankfully, people took pity on me! I failed my way forward each and every day.
Once I realized that I needed someone or something to help me learn and grow, I was fortunate to find a coach and a mentor to guide me. I attended every training I could reasonably travel to. I developed systems and tools. And my failures...and sheer determination paid off.
The first time I was asked to teach, speak and then coach, I was petrified! Who was I to teach or coach anyone else? Never one to back down from a challenge, I did it. I truly believe I got more out of the experience than my clients! Watching the excitement and understanding spark in others was one of the most rewarding experiences I had to date. And so, my path changed direction.
Since that time, I have continued to fail my way forward. I have been fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to run some of the largest and most profitable real estate offices in the country. I have recruited hundreds of agents and I have been allowed to coach and train over 5,000 people in sales, real estate, non-profit and communications.
It is my sincere hope that our coaching and training systems are able to help you achieve all of your goals.
