I love this acronym, developed by a former coaching client:
T= take the time
R= regularly meet
U= understand the situation and facts
S= share solutions and agree on the next actions
T= thank the other person

WTF stands for “what the f____” It’s a swear word. You should know that.
I swear by this: WTF stands for “What’s The Focus?”
When you FOCUS on providing great value to people, then you will do so.
When you focus on cheating people, then you will do so.
WTF Coaching is a process of intentionally focusing on positive outcomes in your professional and personal life.
We ALL need WTF coaching at times.
No one is successful when they are alone. Teams are successful. The myth of the solo-preneur is dead. Every successful client and alliance partner that I know of has a tremendous support team providing sales, marketing, delivery, assessments, etc.
Throughout history, our WTF Coaches have helped us become successful. They help us keep our focus.
I currently work with 2 peer WTF Coaches, because I need more help than many 🙂
So, who is your WTF Coach?

People buy products and services ONLY when they see tremendous value.
When I need a discount I go to Amazon or Costco. Transactional level of services. I do not compete with such transactional “business coaches.” If someone wants information they can have it from my transactional websites, www.growcompany.co and www.startcompany.co.
When I want to provide tremendous value to a business owner or team, then I ALWAYS provide 3 levels of value. People need to choose. And they pay more for each investment.
Then I strive to ALWAYS over-deliver on whatever value level they select.
If you’d like to see a sample proposal, just call or reply directly.
How about you, do you ONLY sell value?
