15 Tips to Help You Build Courage and Confidence as a Coach

366e455383914c419a551b02af5c0863Imagine you had a magic wand and were able to ask Oprah your big question about what it takes to be successful. No question was too big. She is ready to give you her secrets on how you can become successful as a coach, mentor, or leader.

Well, you may have the chance to do this because Oprah is about to travel again on her The Life You Want Tour. She’s headed to Australia and New Zealand to share her message and magic with those who want to pay for it. Tickets to her events are up into the thousands, and if you pay for her pre-event, you get some cool stuff like a 15 min Q&A and a photo op with the goddess herself.

It’s a pretty penny and I’m sure it’s going to be an incredible, life changing event. Hopefully they will let people share it on Periscope (let’s hang out @HillaryRubin).  :)

Well, if you’re not headed to one of her events and still want to get your questions answered and find out the secrets from 15 top coaches and mentors (who I personally sat down with to pick their brains) about what they did to become successful in their businesses, then you are in luck.

One secret I know from experience is this…   

When it comes to getting guidance or advice, what really works is picking a coach or mentor that is a few steps ahead of you and where you want to be. Ahem, Oprah is a trillion steps ahead from all of us. This does not mean she does not give great advice. What it means is she knows how to do what she does but may not know what it really takes to make it as a coach. No offense, Oprah!

Psst… another secret is when you are starting out, you don’t have to have it all figured out to help someone. You get to start where you are and where you are is relatable and a few steps ahead of those who will seek you out… AMEN to that!

Needing motivation to get started? Then be prepared to have your world rocked…

Here is some of the best advice I’ve heard for those who want to be inspired, build their confidence or know they are on the right path.
