Can you DIY or will your way through everything you want to accomplish in your life? Sure. Is it the most effective route that’s going to optimize your results? Debatable.
Today we’re talking about the value of a coach in areas of your life that really matter — the areas that you care about, the areas that make a big difference, and the areas in which you want to go beyond simply “good enough” and truly optimize.
A recent experience with a running coach made Kali realize how important it is to have an expert there to guide you, and how equally important it is that a coach is not someone who gives you prescriptive advice and tells you precisely what to do.
The best coaches are the ones that set up guardrails, point you in the right direction, and then motivate you to drive forward on your own terms while providing feedback so you can improve along the way.
In this episode, we discuss how coaching can make a difference, how it applies to your financial life, what to look for in a good coach, and when to know it’s time to hire someone to help elevate your game (or your finances, or your training, or your life) so you can reach your highest potential.

- The Peloton app is awesome. We actually dropped our gym membership and just pay for the app now (~$14 per month, versus $99 for the gym). They also give you 30 days to trial it out, and when our trial period was ending they sent an email to remind us to cancel if we didn’t want to be charged.
- Michael Lewis’ podcast Against the Rules did a few episodes on the value of coaching. We particularly liked this one that told the story of his high school baseball coach.
