I sat down on Thursday to start my month of coaching with Tom Ferry (that I won right here at ActiveRain) via Skype. I wasn't 100% sure what to expect. I was looking forward to it, but that was about all I knew.
Tom was downright forthcoming in his assessments and making sure I understood what we were going to be looking at. He didn't even mention real estate at first, we spoke more about personal life for the first few minutes. As we spoke, I realized just why he was asking the questions he did. I'd say Tom Ferry is one part therapist, one part someone you can trust and open up to, one part real estate guide, and one part funny guy.
Coaching isn't something I've ever done before, so I wasn't prepared for the look at other sides of my life (instead of just real estate), but I had promised Tom, myself, and my readers that I would go at this full force and see what I got out of it. I owe it to all three (especially myself) to observe and report and there is no better way to do so than to dive in and get involved.
I wrote about our first call over at Tattooed Real Estate in the post "First Coaching Call With Tom Ferry." It's a bit of a light post as I think Tom and I were just getting started. I have been busy on my assignments (five separate assignments in the first call!), which I will detail a bit more as time progresses. Overall, I think Tom Ferry will wind up helping me quite a bit, but that remains to be seen. I'll speak to you in about a week and let you know how round two goes.
