The job of a coach


For some, there is a disconnect between ability and desire.

Even though some people want to create magic, they often find themselves coming up a bit short, and delivering more drama or confusion than magic.

Their heart is in the right place, but sadly, they just don't have what it takes.

Your job is to give them a little nudge and helping hand to see if you assist them in achieving their dream."
