3 common hesitations about the Deep Work Intensive

Hi there,

Thanks so much for checking out the Deep Work Intensive. As a reminder, it’s a 12-week intensive that combines the powers of coaching with actionable deep work principles in order to uproot the results that you don’t want in your life and create the ones that you do.

Allow me to guess what you’re thinking right now. You’re intrigued. You think I paint a pretty darn compelling picture of what your life looks like now and what it could look like in just a few weeks. You believe me when I say that, if you apply these techniques, this would be life changing for you. 

But hiring a life coach? You’ve got your hesitations. In speaking to other professionals like you, there are several objections that generally surface.

#1: “I can do this on my own, I don’t need to hire a coach.”

I understand the sentiment. Interestingly, coaching has made it into the mainstream in many areas and industries — sales coaching, leadership coaching, sports coaching — but not the foundation of all of it: Life.

Let me ask you this: Do you look down on Tiger Woods or Roger Federer for having a coach? Absolutely not. They understand the value of bringing in an experienced, trained specialist to help navigate pitfalls and roadblocks, as well as replicate and amplify current successes.

(And the good news is that, unlike their coaches, I don’t charge millions. Yet.)

#2: “I don’t want to invest [time, money, and/or energy].”

If you knew without a shadow of a doubt that this method could bring you the results that you want in your life, I guarantee that you would be willing to invest the time, money, and energy.

Your hesitation to commit stems from doubt. Here’s the question that I pose to my clients: Do you believe or are you open to believing that this will work for you? If it’s not a resounding yes, this isn’t for you.

I also make this big guarantee: If it is truly a top priority for you to create more money, feel like you have more time, and increase your energy, you will have those things before we finish our time together. With my full refund policy, that’s a guarantee.

#3: “I don’t think that you understand my situation enough to help me.”

Here’s the great news: I don’t need to understand your industry, your role, your finances, or your relationship to coach you on them. My job is to help you see your mind and all of the ripple effects that it’s creating in your life.

I do this by using my superpowers: Insightful question asking to get you thinking differently, impeccable listening skills to hear what you’re saying and not saying, stellar pattern recognition to piece together disparate parts of the puzzle of your life, and an uncompromised commitment to holding a neutral, impartial space to allow you to process fully.

Something similar that I hear from clients is “I can just talk to my friends and family, because they know me.” I usually half-jokingly respond: “That’s the problem. They know you.” Friends and family are great support systems, but they don’t offer the #1 thing that a coach offers: An unbiased, fresh perspective, dedicated solely to you and your well-being.

(And, if I may be so blunt, are you actually having these kinds of deep, growth-oriented conversations with your friends and family regularly anyway? Most men that I speak to aren’t.)

If you’re intrigued, here’s your next step:

Book a time on my calendar and come to the video call with the answer to just one question: What’s one area of your life that you think could be better? I’ll show you how it’s possible through deep work and coaching. Hiring a life coach might be your best move yet.
