Life Coaching


Taryn Pike Black Hawk, SD

I'm at a point professionally and personally that I think I could really benefit from a coach that focuses on goal setting/mindset/accountability/etc. Does anyone have a recommendation?

Hi Taryn,

Thank you for your service. I actually used to work at ACP and transitioned to become a Life and Career Coach in 2016. I’d be happy to help you figure out if coaching is the right next step for you and talk about your options for finding a coach. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or need any support.

With Gratitude,

Hi Taryn -

I'm a coach who specializes in working with people who may be open to business ownership as a new career option. My company provides no-cost education, coaching, and access to hundreds of different opportunities. If that's an area of curiosity, I'd be happy to connect and help you in any way that I can. Thanks! Mike Harrington

Taryn, I am in the process of transitioning from the service and was able to use a life coach provided free of charge through the Committee Foundation. It was incredibly beneficial. I used my ACP mentor for industry specific and job search discussion, my coach helped me determine my priorities, strengths and to set goals for other things outside of just finding employment. Hope that helps. I strongly recommend the Committee Foundation.

Just ask! Most professionals would be honored to mentor you. I recommend finding someone who has already achieved success in your chosen field...even better if they live locally so you can get together in person. Not sure where I read this but I find it to be true: "ask someone for a job and you'll get advice...ask someone for advice and you'll get a job!" Good luck.

I have been a mentor with ACP for some time now, They have a very good program where they can match you with a mentor, who can help you through most situations from transition to goal setting. I know I have worked with several people and find it very rewarding. I would recommend reaching out to them and seeing if that is something you would like to pursue.

Taryn- I’ve served as a mentor to a serviceman that’s leaving the service this year. In addition, I have over 45 years experience in supervising and mentoring people. Please let me know if I can help.

Hi Taryn:

I think you’re on the right track . Working with an ACP mentor should provide you with guidance going forward . I’d also recommend reading the responses to other veterans’ questions. I believe one of the responses on this forum mentioned that ATT had an veteran hiring program. Clearly there are other companies throughout the US that value the type of experience and mindset that military veterans have.

I’m certain your ACP mentor will provide you with organizations looking to hire veterans . Before doing so he or she will help you clarify your goals , highlight your strengths and opportunities for improvement and help you craft a marketable resume. One issue I suggest you consider is your willingness to relocate . Clearly, your opportunities will be enhanced with your ability to travel to other areas of the country .

Lastly, I suggest you also get on’s email list . They have an excellent newsletter that periodically provides information on companies hiring veterans .

Good luck.

Thank you gentlemen! I did submit the ACP application, so I'm excited to keep moving through that process.
