What is Life Coaching? Coaching is an ongoing relationship which focuses on clients taking action toward the realization of their visions, goals or desires. Coaches use a process of inquiry and personal discovery to build the level of awareness and accountability which provides the client with structure, support and feedback. This process helps clients define and achieve professional and personal goals faster and with more ease than may be possible otherwise.
Where's the "magic"? Have you ever had a conversation that is solely about you? Where the listener is there strictly to help you get results that satisfy your head and your heart without interjecting their own agenda or what they think you should do or feel? There is no magic! Or I guess I could say the "magic" is in YOU! Your coach knows you have the answers inside of you and will help you find them. Coaching is positive, it's rewarding, and it's energizing. It lights a fire inside of you and sparks inspiration that you may not find on your own. Wouldn't it feel great to have someone on your side, cheering you on, believing in you without any agenda of their own? A life coach will identify goals, examine patterns, listen for excuses, ask for action and enforce commitments.

But it helps that coaching is the very definition of accountability; It's human nature to reach further when we have someone watching. It's a known fact that 2 brains bring a third to the solution search! Coaching runs 24/7 for months, and can (and should) last until the goals are inevitably reached; and, like the best partnerships between coaches and elite athletes, or executive parents and their personal life coach consistency brings trust !
Why By Phone? Coaching, which is a relationship carried out not just by phone but, critically, through email, and instant messenger.
