Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.

“Parents of [millennials] didn’t have Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. The comparison and the pressures of being enough, feeling left out […] wanting to be different but be included — it’s just so layered. […] This age group has a lot more to navigate and has to figure out how to moderate their intake of information…how to create a sense of connection with people in real life and a sense of intimacy and authenticity that generations before didn’t have to navigate. […] This sense that everyone else has it all figured out. The reality is that life is hard and everyone is figuring it out one step at a time.”
