Today’s show opens a different perspective on living as a coach. What we mean are the ways we, as coaches, put our coaching principles into action with those with whom we interact in our lives on both personal and professional levels. Join us for a look at this topic!

Mina Brown is a Master Certified Coach with over 20 years’ experience. As a gifted and inspiring teacher of coaching, Mina has found her space in executive and career coaching, and she runs Coach Academy International, a coach training school. Mina and I have been discussing how we show up each and every day as coaches, and how we live as human beings with family, friends, neighbors, and strangers. We’re bringing that conversation to you through today’s show.
