Every job has its difficult moments and coaching is no different.

I absolutely love coaching, teaching, and connecting with clients and I honestly can’t imagine doing anything else. Even so, there are moments where it feels tough and I wonder if I have what it takes to do it all.

At the end of the day, I know the answer is yes but that doesn’t change the fact that some days are harder than others.

Today, I’m taking a look at some of the challenges I have faced in my own journey as a coach and sharing the strategies you can use to navigate through them.

I hope that by sharing this honest perspective, if and when you find yourself facing these obstacles, you’ll feel more comfortable and know that you can overcome them.

You know, typically in this podcast, I am talking a lot about why coaching is such an amazing field, and how to become a coach, and how to strengthen your proficiency in coaching.
