Good Coaching is the ONLY option for Veterans you want to reach your goal(s) in the civilian world faster, better and more effectively

Military to Civilian Transition

This may be intuitive, but why do you, as a veteran, truly need a coach?

Because after getting to know you, after understanding your goals, and after working with you to develop your strategy to reach your goals, a good coach will know what information to provide you, what work needs to be done without any coddling or assumptions.

The free resources available are good at providing a lot of "what" information. Unfortunately, the amount of "what" information is overwhelming and, in many cases, contradictory.

On one site alone, when you click on the button named Services, it takes you to a page with over 85 different sites tagged. While a brief description is provided:

• There is no guidance on how to engage the sites.
• There is no information once you get to the sites on how to engage with them.
• Each site has between 5 and 20 more choices to navigate through.
• These sites do not provide any "how" or "why" information, which is necessary for anyone to implement their plan, assuming that you have a plan to implement.

How much time will it take you to look through all of that information and how do you know which information is best for you?

A good coach sorts all of this for you, optimizes your time, focuses your efforts and leads you to realize your goals.

So yes, you, as a veteran, need a good coach if you want to reach your goal(s) in the civilian world faster, better, effectively and authentically.
