  • 83: Getting the Most from Business Coaching with Barb Wade

    On today’s episode, Dr. Sabrina and Mike chat with Barb Wade, one of Dr. Sabrina’s coaches.

    You’ll get an in-depth look at the coaching industry: What goes on behind the scenes that a consumer of coaching services should be aware of, as well as how to utilize coaching for yourself to make it a great experience that supports your life vision and where you’re headed. PLUS, Barb dives deep into her career pivot and why she now focuses on margin and profit over top-line revenue to run a business that supports her life vision.

    Whether you’ve had coaching, or if you have ever considered coaching, you’ll not want to miss this illuminating conversation!

    Barb Wade, M.A., is a Transformational Coach, Speaker, and Author who works with high-achievers to release the patterns, fears, and obstacles that have been keeping them settling for LESS than what they truly want MOST.  Barb helps her clients re-define success based on their authentic values and priorities – not external “should’s” and expectations – and create exceptional real-world results in life and work. Barb speaks frequently at conferences and on industry panels, has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS News, and FOX, and was the official on-air Life Coach for the Fine Living Channel for 8 years.

    • Mike shares words of wisdom for the entrepreneur who has never had a business coach.
