My WHY for coaching
“I speak and coach to flip the switch in the average person’s mind to give them the edge that they need to win. Why? Because I am not satisfied with the world I live in. I don’t like living in a world where people are unhealthy because of their own ignorance, families are too immature to grow together, poverty is a recurring theme for generations, systematic racism goes uncorrected, physical and mental abuse is passed on from parent to child, drug abuse still plagues communities, the average person is ignorant on the subject of finances, war is still acceptable, gang violence takes innocent lives, divorce is considered normal, universities are setting people up for mediocrity, society ignores human nature and people only want to be honest with subjects they are comfortable with that don’t make them look bad. So I have 2 choices. Either I accept things the way that they are or a I be the change I want to see.”
