Why did you get into this line of work?
I personally experienced three major upheavals in life. I do not classify them as good or bad, just as major changes. Two of these were career related and the last one was a health related life-altering event. In each of these situations, I was fortunate to have someone by my side to guide me through these events and help me stay on track with my life and career plans. I have experienced the benefits of motivational sessions first hand. My personal experiences have taught me what a difference motigation makes in a person’s life especially during times of upheaval and change. Therefore, after 29 years in the corporate world, I decided to devote the rest of my life to helping you and others like you who find themselves in similar situations. I have found coaching to be a very rewarding and fulfilling experience as I help motivate my clients through significant life and career changes.
How can I find out more about you and your motivation style as it applies to my situation without making a commitment?
I believe that it is extremely important for a motivator and client to have a very strong rapport and trust for optimal results. I encourage you to schedule your complimentary consultation. We will get to know each other in this session. I will listen to you and may ask questions to help clarify your preliminary goals. At the end of the session, we may decide that we have a strong rapport and decide to move forward.
Alternately, you may decide that that my style is not appropriate for you. Conversely, I may decide that I am not the right person to address your specific situation. In either case, I will gladly recommend another expert, if you so desire.
Why do you motivate on the phone versus in person?
We live in the electronic "connected" age, where technology is able to bridge the gap across miles.
Telephonic motivation is extremely effective because:
You are able to work with a expert with whom you have the appropriate rapport regardless of where he/she lives.
You can receive motivational sessions in an environment that is appropriate and comfortable for you.
You can receive motivational sessions without having to spend time fighting through traffic to get to your coaching session.
Business or personal travel does not interrupt the flow as long as you have access to a phone.
Telephonic motivational sessions offer the ability to achieve optimal results in the least amount of time. I work with clients all over the US and worldwide. One of my clients finished the last six of his sessions while sailing the Caribbean with his wife on a 45 ft. catamaran.
What are your qualifications?
You can view my bio and credentials on the About section of this website. Although credentials sound great on paper, tools and techniques are constantly changing. I am always in learning mode through continuing education, participating in seminars, forums, etc., so that I can provide the latest and greatest to my clients at all times.
Satisfied clients are the best references. Please review my Testimonials.
How long does it take?
Depending on the individual and the situation, the duration of a motivational relationship varies from a few months to over a year. Most of my clients find immediate benefits as soon as they commit to working with me.
Why do you call it an "investment" and not a "fee"?
The term "fee" implies that I am selling you something, either goods or services.
I am not selling you anything. You are making an investment in yourself. Like higher education, BRAVO Motivation requires a strong commitment on your part to learn the tools and techniques that will make you feel unstuck and propel you forward.
