How do I talk about this opportunity with my partner or spouse?

Discussing this opportunity with your partner can be challenging, but here are some tips to navigate the conversation about coach training:

1) Express Your Passion: Share why a career in coaching means a lot to you. Highlight the ways it can benefit your relationship or family, such as providing financial freedom or more quality time with your kids. Help them see the positive impact this opportunity can have on your shared goals and dreams.

2) Seek Belief in You: Instead of asking for permission or convincing them about coaching, ask for their belief in you. Frame it as an invitation for them to support you on a deeper level. Emphasize that this is about personal growth and a shared journey that can strengthen your connection.

3) Share Success Stories: If your partner is looking for concrete evidence, feel free to share success stories from other students who have benefited from the program. This can provide tangible examples of the positive outcomes of coach training.

Remember, sometimes we need to make decisions for ourselves even if our loved ones aren't immediately on board. It can be tough, but pursuing your dreams is essential for creating the life you want.
