"The power of positive ACTION! The authors not only share their secrets to building a highly successful practice, but also provide readers with practical, everyday action steps to fill their practice, generate more referrals, and find more clients fast by taking positive actions."
—Stephen Fairley, MA, RCC President & Business Coach, Today's Leadership Coaching, Inc coauthor of Getting Started in Personal and Executive Coaching

"The Successful Coach is terrific-practical, friendly, and very helpful. Instead of fearfully wondering, 'Can I make it as a coach?' aspiring coaches can shift and confidently ask, 'What kind of difference do I want to make with people?' and 'What wonderful life will I have when I am a wildly successful coach?'"
—Marilee Adams, PHD author of Change Your Questions, Change Your Life
