Private Coaching

Coaching is getting someone to do what they don’t want to do, in order for them to be able to do what they want to do. —VINCE LOMBARDI

  • Are you ready to make the leap from the sidelines to the playing field?
  • Is it time to go from a dedicated amateur to the ranks of a professional artist?
  • Is your career in a holding pattern?
  • Do you need . . .
    • a mentor?
    • straight answers from someone with over 40 years in the business?
    • some encouragement?
    • a cheering section?
    • someone in your court?
    • an honest but compassionate critique?
    • an outside eye on what is working and what isn’t?
