No matter what work we do and what passions we pursue in life, we must manage our time, energy, and confidence to be successful. For coaches and others in the helping professions, these management skills are important to us AND our clients. We can help others reach their goals by empowering them to examine how they engage with their time, energy, and confidence. Join us to learn more from today’s inspiring guest!
