What led you to be a coach?

Like Jonah did for 40 (days) unsuccessfully, I ran from God’s calling on me for 40 (years) unsuccessfully. But, . . .Finally, I accepted my calling: to present current events, newsmakers in light of Biblical best-practices (the WHAT). Therefore Christian life coaching, author-publishing, and online courses’ creation/training are the HOW.

What do I like about coaching?

It’s God’s natural extension of my prior professional expertise:

  • As Assistant Freshman Studies Director at Hampton University (1991-98), I advised and counseled some 9,200 collegians – with a 90-93% retention rate;

  • With DirecTV’s customer retention group, I retained 76% of my disconnecting customers; and

  • Now in “coach-sulting” (overlapping coaching and consulting), I am able to replicate that previous fruitfulness in an un-apologetically Christian way!

How do I recharge on my days off?

Other than observing weekly the Biblical seventh-day Sabbath – what’s a “day off” for a “God-preneur”?

What are three of my favorite things?

Partnering with the Holy Spirit to become more Christlike, being a loving stay-at-home “Proverbs 31” husband (since 1994) and a doting Dad (since 2003), and publishing a “Perspectives on God’s Views and Current News” column in The Valley Weekly.
