We’re officially coming up on the ‘back to school’ time of the year, and the lazy days of summer are coming to a close. I love this time of year because it feels like a revving up after a period of rest and fun. This time of year feels more ripe for transformation than the new year when people typically make new years resolutions – I find that my energy is higher, the sun is out longer, and I’m fired up to tackle new initiatives and challenges.
If you’re feeling this too, it might be a good time to enlist the help of a mentor or coach. Finding a great coach or mentor can be daunting, so I’ve compiled a list of coaches who can help you with starting your business to transforming your health.
