You wish to be a coach? How do you know if you are a “coach”.
Do you effect changes in those athletes who trust you to speak truth and cause positive change?’
Simply, do you give more than you receive?
There is no way that a coach can be paid enough for what he does (said he, modestly)…. SO it is important that the “quid pro quo” have nothing to do with money.
Yes, a coach, you, must make a payment be worth what the payor feels it is worth. One failing coaches often have is that they are afraid to charge a fee commensurate (equal to) what their benefit is worth. So they charge nothing and send the message that their expertise is worth “nothing”. So it is worth exactly what they wanted to relate it as.
How do you know you are a coach worth your salt? Regardless of what you charge you can judge your worth by simply, do your subjects improve? Do they respect you? Do you exit the gym feeling that you have done good?
As a coach, often you can hope for nothing more.
