Coaching with Excellence

A 2-Day Workshop for anyone who wants to frame the advice giving you’re already doing into a meaningful and profitable business

Every day I have people ask me – “Dan, can I be a coach?”

And my response is always, “Are people coming to you now asking for your help and advice?” If they are, we can likely shape what you are already doing into a profitable business. If you’re a person others seek out for help and support, or for a shoulder to lean on, you’re probably already “coaching” at a certain level. And chances are you have the skills required to call yourself a coach.

Do you have what it takes to be a coach? There’s a quick way to find out…

How many of these things are already true for you?

  • People seek you out for your advice. Whether it’s after church, at a Chamber of Commerce meeting or at a social event, people are always asking for your advice and opinion.
  • You value personal growth. You set and accomplish your own goals in multiple areas of your life.
  • You see great potential in people. And it frustrates you when they don’t exercise that potential.
  • You build strong relationships easily. You relate well to others personally, in business and just in the ordinary encounters in life.
  • You don’t need anyone to motivate you or schedule your time. You exercise discipline in your own life and want others to know the freedom that comes from reaching new goals.
  • You recognize you’ve already been coaching – you just need a way to formalize what you’re already doing. Now you’re ready to schedule sessions and charge for your expertise.

Join us LIVE at the Sanctuary in Franklin, Tennessee for an intensive two-day event where you will receive a clear overview of coaching to determine whether it is the right fit for you.

If you are curious about coaching, or want to pursue being a 48 Days Certified Coach, this is the event you have to come to!

  • What is a coach, why is it growing in popularity…and am I cut out to be one?
  • How to create and/or build your coaching business

Since that time she has positioned herself solidly as a coach, written her first book, been on multiple TV interviews, received the 2015 Humanitarian Award from the United Nations and achieved a level of financial success that most people dream of.  I have asked Jevonnah to come back to this Coaching with Excellence and share the details of her very first year as a coach.  Her story will inspire and awe you but you’ll also hear firsthand how she found clients quickly, developed her marketing strategy, and experienced the thrill of seeing lives changed.  And her enthusiasm and kind spirit will encourage you to pursue your own path to success.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Nashville International Airport (BNA) is approximately 28 minutes away from the Sanctuary.

This is up to you, but a taxi ride can be a bit pricey! We recommend using Lyft or Uber if you want to shuttle around, and since both days will be spent at one location the whole time, this is reasonable.  Most people choose to simply rent a car.

*Special perk – get $20 credit toward your first ride with Lyft by using the code ASHLEY669768, and get a free ride through Uber by using the promo code ashleyl592!

Additional participants are $500. Bring a guest and split the cost, or bring your spouse! It’s amazing how many spouses come for “support” and end up getting so much more out of it. We have even had spouses go further with coaching certification because of what all they gleaned from it!  If you plan on making this a fun trip and staying over the weekend, there are plenty of wonderful things to do in Nashville for the family, and spouses can attend meals for $15/meal or $50 for both days.

We will send you a welcome package with some of our favorite places to recommend – hotels as well as bed and breakfasts – as soon as you register you will get a welcome package full of details on suggestions and what to expect!  That being said, feel free to explore the options and stay wherever you want!

The event starts promptly at 8:30am Central on Thursday and ends around 7pm Central on Friday. If you want to get the most out of it, we suggest you come in on Wednesday night so you are well-rested for a full day, and don’t book a flight before 10pm Friday night to ensure you aren’t rushing out and missing some great connections!

Fortunately, the best option is for us to simply move you back to the next available CWE event!  We are happy to just push back registration to another event. If, for some reason, you decide to pull entirely out, we will either give you a full refund or refund you minus the cost of the personality profile if you have already taken that.

As soon as you register, you will get a full welcome package that details exactly what to expect, including the average weather, etc. Wear comfortable clothes, as we will tour around the property on a mulch trail one of the days whenever the weather is best. You’ll be sitting and potentially eating outside, so comfortable clothes are a must. However, keep in mind this is also a professional event and an opportunity to network with others. Although you can show up in your pjs, we recommend a little more classiness than that! :-)

We typically have some sort of option for vegetarians and gluten-free, but please let us know so we can ensure there is something to eat at every event. If you have severe restrictions, there is a grocery store down the street and we have a fridge to store any food you need to supply yourself.

Game-changers; highly driven entrepreneurs ready to take action!
