She was wearing shorts, standing on the deck of the sailboat and talking on one of those early big-brick cell phones.

Beneath the picture was an article about coaching.

Honestly, I don’t remember much about the article other than to be introduced to the concept of coaching.

The idea of having clients call me, and I could be anywhere, doing anything, was so appealing.

I jumped in to learn what I could about this world.

My knowledge of coaching, consulting and business-building has grown a lot over the last 20 years – all while my cell phone gets smaller and smaller.

It was about choice then. It’s about choice now.

Do I proactively design my life, or do I react to it?

It seems my clients (coaches looking for clients, small business owners looking for greater freedom, or professionals trying to fill a practice), all want the same thing. 

More choice.

That comes from opportunity.

And opportunity is everywhere, if you know where to look.

I cover a whole section on opportunity in my “Get Clients Fast: 22 Practice Steps to Filling Your Practice” book.

I also help you get clear on what “choice” you want to make.
