I hate having a coach. - ⚡️Kristen Kalp

I hate having a coach.

Have you ever taken a break from something, and when you returned you were like, THIS IS THE WORST THING EVER BUT ALSO IT’S SO GOOD FOR ME AND I LOVE IT…?

For me, that’s the experience of having a coach.

It’s been seven years since I paid a mentor of any kind to help in my business — and I’d forgotten how vulnerable and messy and tricky and awful and wonderful and lovely and helpful it can be to have someone in your corner.  (For more conclusions about throwing down mad cash for a business mentor: the trouble with bullet points and no more business frappuccinos.)

In this episode of the That’s What She Said podcast, we talk through the four phases of any coaching practice, why they each suck (which is also what makes them awesome), and how to go about hiring a coach of your own.

YES, I share my coach’s name if you’d like to hire them, and YES, I’m a fan of pretty much everyone having a perfect-for-them coach to help ’em along.

This applies just as much to Crossfit and health and learning as it does to business and growth and sports and knitting.  Especially knitting, because have you watched those impossible YouTube tutorials?  We humans get better with coaches.

Also this episode is *wildly* vulnerable, so if you’d like to reach out and say hey, please do so!  You can also leave a tip or a review.  (We’re at 32 5-star reviews and counting!)

P.S. A reminder!  I’m a soulful business coach who’s also practical AF. If you’d like to work with me, we’ll move through mess, ideas, ways of being, and accountability together in the year-long KK on Tap program. There’s 1 spot open at the moment, so email me if you’re interested: k@kristenkalp.com!  I’d love to talk with you about whether we’re a good fit — and if I know someone better suited to your needs, I’ll happily send you along to them.  😉
