What is one investment you’ve made in the past that you’re grateful for today?
In 2011, my financial planning practice was thriving, for the most part. It had been three years since I left my old firm and co-founded Alliance Investment Planning Group, and this blog was doing very well.
In spite all of that, I felt like something was missing.
It wasn’t about the money, because I was making more than enough to support my family. It was more about how I was spending my time each day. There were certain parts about my day that I absolutely loved, but there were other parts that I absolutely dreaded.
I remembered that the mentor who had first hired me to be a financial advisor once told me that he had gone through a few different coaching programs. At the time, I didn’t get it.
Why would you ever spend money on a coach? But I slowly started to realize that I needed someone to help me figure out what exactly I wanted to accomplish, and how I was going to do it.
Through a contact I met on my blog, I learned about a program called The Strategic Coach. This online entrepreneur I met had been in the program for 12 years and suggested that I check it out. I decided to investigate their website.
Then I saw the cost. <insert jaw drop>
Based on my income bracket (they have different price ranges depending on where your income falls), it would cost me $6,900 per year to be a part of the program. If that wasn’t a tough pill to swallow, I then learned that the program only consisted of four workshop days per year.
