Every so often I get asked the question who coaches me?  That’s an important question that I want to address and share with you.

Just know that anytime you work with someone, you get their lens of their experiences.  You may have heard me mention this in previous episodes, are you the type of client you want to attract? 

So I thought I’d give you a history of who I’ve worked with in the past and where I am now.

The Evolution Who Has Coached Me Over The Years And Where I Am Now

I came online in 2006 thinking I could figure all this out by myself and after three years of struggling and not bringing in any income, I knew I had to get help but didn’t know anyone.

In 2010 I attended an online marketing event where I met Bedros Keuilian who became my first coach.  He and Craig Ballantyne ran and still run a mastermind together and through Bedros it was how I met Craig.  They were my first two business coaches who have both built very large businesses and a learned a ton from them.

From there I evolved and joined Joe Polish’s Genius Network which is for very high level entrepreneurs.  After two years with them, I realized I had a deficit in how I thought about business and didn’t really know much about building a team.

I had been introduced to Dan Sullivan and joined his Strategic Coaching program. What I learned from his was framework based thinking, higher level conceptual thinking where I was able to move away from me doing everything to begin building people around me to support the bigger vision.

Two years ago I started working with Taki Moore who I met at Strategic Coach.  I was looking to scale my coaching business from a delivery and program structure standpoint and that’s what Taki is amazing at and I’m at his highest level boardroom program.  The cool thing is that I have access to all kinds of amazing coaches in various industries and learning a ton from them.

I’ve recently joined Alex Charfen who is the world’s leading consultant for helping businesses scale properly with operations and systems.

Someone I’m working with, not as a coach, but who happens to be a good friend of mine is Nicholas Kusmich who is the world’s leading Facebook ads strategist.  We teach Facebook ads to our clients and have run my own Facebook ad campaigns for years and handed that over to Nicholas about two years ago because he’s the best in the business at that.

How I Am Better Able To Serve My Clients And My Team From Being Coached

When I’m sharing with you what’s working for us, not only is it coming from “in the trenches” experience, it also comes from the highest possible levels.  When I look back at what I’ve spent on coaches, masterminds and events, I don’t look at it as a cost, I look at it as an investment.  It would be incongruent for me to be coaching people without having coaching myself.  If you’re not growing, you have nothing to give people.  You have to constantly be outgrowing your clients and your team.

What You Missed

In our last episode, I was joined by two special guests, my sons Oscar and Arlo to talk about how to get good at anything.

When you watch this episode, you’ll understand why I’ve brought them on for a very specific reason as it relates to this topic.

If there’s something we don’t like doing, chances are is because it may be something we don’t understand or we’re just not good at.  If we keep plugging away, eventually we’ll understand it, become better at it and you’ll begin to like it.

Keep in mind that every master was once a disaster so whatever you may be good at now, you once sucked at when you first started.

Here’s the caveat.  Yes it’s important to practice, however, having the right guidance to learn how to do something correctly is key.  You can practice doing something the wrong way and become very good at doing it wrong.

When you’re first starting your business, no one starts out being a great copywriter or being great on the phone.  With the right guidance and practice, it’s something you will get good at doing over time.

This applies to just about anything, not just business as you’ll see with two of my sons, Arlo and Oscar.
