Simple. It's coaching in 15-minute increments, without the chit-chat and "how's the weather" stuff, where we focus on getting you to take the next step toward your health and fitness goals.
Our first call, the "get to know you" session, is 30 minutes. That's so I can get to know you well enough to guide you effectively. We'll identify your big goals, and the action steps you'll need to take to reach them. We'll also uncover hidden obstacles so we can overcome them with our eyes open.
Each subsequent session is 15 minutes (or less). On each call, we will work toward your goals and come up with homework that we agree on (we both must agree on the homework, and I promise I won't go crazy and give you too much).
After each call, I send you an email with a link to the recording of our call, your homework, and a link to schedule our next call.
I've charged clients up to $2000 per month to guide them toward their goals. Because of the way I've structured laser coaching (15-minute sessions, responsibility for scheduling and homework rests with you), I can reduce that to an outlandishly low $2000 per year. (Divide that by 12 to get the jaw-dropping monthly cost - who else offers unlimited one-on-one coaching for a number even close to that?)
Lots of folks are hurting financially right now, and lots of folks need support to adopt and maintain healthy habits in the time of COVID-19. So I've updated my pricing to allow more people to participate.
I'm implementing a "Pay from the Heart" system, meaning that you check in with your heart and come up with a payment - one-time or monthly installments - that feels right to you.
Because I'm also on shaky financial ground at the moment, I'm setting the minimum contribution at 50% of my standard rate: $1000 for the year, or $83 per month for 12 months.
If you really want to work with me, but those minimum contributions will make it difficult for you to afford food and shelter, then the next step is for us to connect and find a price that works for both of us. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll set up a time to talk.
Simple. Once you complete the homework assignment, you can go online and schedule your next session.
Yes. You get a recording of each coaching session. And you get a confirmation email from me, with your homework and a link to schedule your next session.
In this time of "social distancing" (ie separation and loneliness), it's more important than ever to find supportive and fun groups that encourage us to be our best selves.
So for the first time ever, I'm inviting all my private coaching clients to participate in a weekly 45-minute Zoom meeting for group coaching and support. The calls will be, for the time being, Wednesdays at 1pm ET. They will not be recorded, for privacy reasons.
If you're truly stuck, email me anytime. We'll figure out how to move forward, either with an easier assignment, or breaking it into smaller parts, or uncovering and removing the blockage.
If you don't need any one-on-one support, then you probably won't benefit from laser coaching. You know who you are: you read an article and immediately implement all the strategies without fuss. You're totally self-motivated. You never get hung up on details, or give in to temptation.
If you're not really motivated to get healthy and fit, then laser coaching isn't a good fit for you either. As a coach, I view my clients' motivation the same way a sailor sees the wind. I can't conjure motivation, but if it exists, I can help my clients use it skillfully to reach their destination quickly and easily.
No. At such a low rate, I can't take time to deal with processing and keeping track of monthly payments. If you really want to do this, you'll find a way. PayPal Credit, for example, lets you extend payments for up to six months with absolutely no interest.
See above for the new pricing policy during the pandemic and its aftermath.
Yes. On our first (30 minute) call, if you don't think I can absolutely help you achieve your health and fitness goals, then we'll cancel the agreement and I'll refund your money immediately. No Risk!
Of course. The only urgency is your own. I'll be here when you're ready.
A note on prices: If you're familiar with the Plant Yourself Podcast, you may wonder how I can keep producing a free weekly episode with zero advertising. Each episode takes about five hours a week to book, research, record, edit, and publish. I subsidize that effort - which reaches 10s of thousands of people who may not be able to afford my other products and services - by making a living wage through coaching, among other things.
Truthfully, here's my experience through 17 years of self-employment: the people who know me the best are the ones who sign up the fastest. If you aren't sure (even with the no-risk guarantee), then you may want to wait until you get to know me better (and trust me more).
