No. Any coaching, personal training services, etc are unrelated to cannabis. However, I am hoping to provide a "judgement free" zone for cannabis users in terms of coaching.
Of course not. Some of my greatest breakthroughs have been with people who have zero interest in cannabis use.
First, although there is inevitably a mentoring aspect to what I do, coaching is not so much about “listening” to someone (I’m the one who does most of the listening), but more to do with helping you listen to yourself and keeping you accountable and motivated.
As far as “credentials” go, although I have obtained basic coaching certification and have spent a great deal of time studying various coaching perspectives/theories/models, unlike many coaches, I studied at the school of life.
You can read more about my story here, but instead of reading about people who need help, I was one, and eventually thrived. I completely reject the idea that everyone needs two years and 20k worth of classroom time to be a coach (where you "coach" other aspiring coaches).
Whatever you’re going through, wherever you’re trying to get, there’s a good chance I’ve been there.
I suppose “expensive” is a matter of opinion, but despite 3 figure hourly rates, I can assure you most coaches are not rolling in dough.
Providing someone with dedicated, focused, one to coaching is time consuming and it’s unlikely one could coach for 40 hours a week without the quality of work seriously declining.
Juggling the aspirations, problems, and goals of 40 or even 20 people at a time while still doing work on marketing, social media, etc is a stretch to say the least.
So with all that considered, as well as taxes, business expenses and other costs, even coaches charging upwards of $150 an hour can end up earning a relatively average yearly wage.
And again, “expensive” is relative; I estimate I spent around $30,000 over 5 years on various things trying to get my life in order. Had I found the right person to help me, spending $1000-$2000 on coaching would have been an absolute bargain, considering the potential payoff.
This isn’t necessarily a hard rule, but at the moment, it’s simply the most efficient means of me being able to work with the greatest amount of people.
I’d love to be able to meet one on one with everyone, but my time is limited, and committing to face to face meetings that require me to physically be somewhere, or skype meetings that require me to be near wifi, is just something I couldn’t realistically keep up with.
Having said that, if only talking on the phone is a big issue for you, we may be able to work something out. For those living or vacationing in greater Vancouver, again, we may be able to work something out in terms of in person sessions.
