In this episode…

Why does anyone need to become a coach these days when there are so many people doing it? There’s loads of free advice online. Why should you pay anyone to tell you how to live your life? If you’ve ever thought about these questions or know anyone who has these notions about coaching, then you want to stick around and listen to this episode. 

Joe Bukartek reveals the value of proper coaching and why it is not about telling people what to do but helping them do what they’ve always wanted to do. For instance, he talks about emerging adults and how they struggle to figure out what they want to do with themselves, how they want many different things but are yet to bring themselves to act. How would a struggling person benefit from having a coach?
