A good life coach can turn the clutter and chaos of a person’s life into success and structure. A good life coach will place a person on the path to maximize their potential. This type of coach can open many avenues that a person wasn’t aware of before.
The most important thing is the confidence it can instill. Just having the impression that an “expert” is helping can be a help in itself. Confidence is one of the most important things one can have. Confidence leads the discovery of ones abilities.

R: Think back to your past friends, coworkers, and family – is there anyone who could use help with this subject?

R: Where can regular people like you and me plan to bring this into our daily routine?

R: Who do you think could use some help with this subject?

R: This topic is broad and the readers will need some focus. Can you help guide them along with an example of what to do next?
