How I Became A Coach

Coaching is my second business venture. (Sorry world, one job wasn't going to do it!)

Early in my career as a web design business owner, I found myself doing a lot of training. I taught teams and individuals how to successfully manage their websites or online profiles.

At the same time, I realized I wanted to be able to communicate more effectively. It was easy to communicate with some people, but not so easy with others.

Thankfully, a friend & business consultant introduced me to personality type as a way to understand my own style and the working styles of those with whom I was working. This was a very helpful catalyst for me.

The more I learned about myself and others, the more my stress levels started to go down. I discovered and developed specific techniques that made it easier to stay on track and achieve goals.

I found it easier to complete goals in a way that was more natural to me.

Using the same techniques, I made a goal to lose weight and get in better shape. I lost 100 pounds. For the first time in my adult life, I was at a healthy weight. I couldn't believe the change. It seemed like I had never truly known happiness before. This felt like a significant change at a deeper, psychological level.

And yes, in case you're wondering I have maintained a healthy weight ever since!

Sharing My Experience

As you can see by the photo above, I look different now. At first, people didn't recognize the new me. I had lots of "I'm sorry, do I know you?" experiences.

I remember coming across a friend at the park; I hadn't seen him in a couple of years. After I greeted him, he paused and gave me a horrified stare--he wondered how I knew his name, because he didn't know mine!

After that, people began to ask questions. Mostly: "What happened?" But also: "How did you do it?" or "How can I do it?"

I began consulting others and offering coaching sessions. I gave presentations to large and small groups. Experiencing success in this area, I started Marc Carson Coaching.

Now that I'm a working, professional coach, I am excited to continue helping others to reach their goals. If you would like to start getting help now, please contact me.
