What lights you up? Whatever that “fire” is for you, can you incorporate your passion into your coaching? Today’s show is all about taking your coaching to another level.

Katherine Bock loves the beach! She was creative enough to figure out how her coaching practice could allow her more time at the beach each year, but yet still meet the needs of her clients. Katherine shares how she created getaway retreats as part of her services offered to clients, how the retreats are structured, and how group and individual learning times are set up.
