Business & Life Coach

Job role: Education

Describe what you do in your job. What is a typical day like?

I use my day very productively. I engage with a variety of people who feel stuck and feel they are going around in circles either in their personal or business life. I mentor and coach, and inspire individuals to develop a powerful mindset to combat and manage the day to day challenges they encounter. I write blogs, communicate with people clearly and promptly and enjoy life. Personal experience and having been through that journey qualifies me to do work that I do. Furthermore, it helps me empathise with people who are facing such challenges. I mentor juvenile and adult prisoners. With my style of mentoring and coaching the transformation has been very encouraging. Chances of them reoffending is considerably minimised. I find my work extremely rewarding, and I say to myself at the end of each day. It was brilliant and productive, and I enjoy a restful night.

Comprehend, take notes and process information accordingly. 4. Politely, professionally communicate and liaise with relevant people via email, phone or face to face within an agreed timeline. 5. Follow-up and request feedback to measure your service.

What is great about your job? What part of your job do you enjoy the most?

The great thing about my job is that I am never busy and I have all the time in the world to do what I want.. It is my philosophy, and that's the way I think. I am never busy but always productive. I do the things that are important and requires my time and energy. I have the flexibility of working from anywhere I choose there is free Wi-Fi. All I need is my laptop and my phone. However, in order to achieve this lifestyle, there are disciplines and habits I have instilled and practice daily. To learn more about how I do this. Email me: info@davidandrewcoaching.com
