Read about the work of generous coaches supporting individuals and groups through pro-bono coaching.

Dear Coach:

In this issue we explore the world of pro-bono coaching and the interesting coaches and services they offer to a variety of individuals and organizations. Many of these individuals and groups, disenfranchised in one way or another, wouldn't otherwise experience coaching and the value it's bringing to their lives. So we heartily salute all those coaches that took the time to respond below and to all of the other coaches out there who are graciously giving their time and their skills to make the world a better place.
Respectfully Yours,

Steve Davis

pro-bono clients: disenfranchised/struggling
coach tony dovale
I have been doing free coaching for quite a few years for a range of people, depending upon their circumstances.

My background is in Transformational Facilitation - Powerful Self-Development. I have developed a technology called Emotionetics, which is a synthesis of the best I can find in the planet right now. 

Some of the people I have coached for free
Youth - Drug Rehab and self worth and lifestyle restructuring 
Youth - Entrepreneurs - business wisdom and experience 
Divorced females - rebuild confidence, refocus life, relationship resolution 
Previously Disadvantaged (Read Black) - radio station broadcasting, business development. 
Insolvent /under financial Pressure - rebuild hope, self worth 
Trauma Victims - Reduce energetic Static, regain personal power - Recover from Rape/ Abuse/ Hijack etc.. 
MLM associates - conditions apply 
Past Girlfriends - Recover from the loss of ME! [;)}
FREE SERVICE - I have recently developed an email based WealthWariors coaching programme (Inner Game of outer Success) - currently lasts about 4 months, but I am expanding it as I get more feedback from my subscribers.

Why I do this work
To be available, of real value, and service to another soul in a time of need is the highest calling a human can experience. Soul Food comes from Giving!!

I have been using the "Pay it Forward" strategy for the last 5 years. If I can get 3 people to make a difference in someone else's life... to help 3, to help 3, to help 3, to help 3, for just 20 levels - WE can impact on 50% of our world!! We could stop fighting, fear, all the BS in a moment.
(Big dreams grow big possibilities.) Everything is Possible!

I also believe in giving before I expect to get. Giving without expecting is probably one of the most rewarding and Risk-Free experiences we can enjoy.

My rewards
I am making my own little difference to the world by bringing some Light to the darkness. I love being a positive part of people lives and success. 
What are you if you are only a taker? 

- Self Value, Worth, Esteem, Beliefs, Fears, Stumbling block, Anger, 
  Hurts, Losses, Lack of focus and clarity - Awareness. 
- Life and business devel. - Typically Personal Reengineering strategies.
- New Goals, Sticking to their WORD! Accountability.
- Out of the Box, bag and bubble thinking.
- See new possibilities and opportunities. 

Outcomes/benefits of coaching this group
Having a person who really cares provides increased awareness and self value. I'm an anchor in the storm for the people requiring a helping coach for a brief moment. When they can in turn be there for someone else - they learn, grow and flourish. Often Great Role models grow great role models, who will grow great role models. Other outcomes include:

- Explosive business development
- Paradigm / belief re-structuring / Thought Virus Removal
- One client went from requiring R350,000 to cover debts and is about to 
  generate R5 Million!
- Irrevocably stretching the boundaries of personal possibility.
- Youth become incredibly powerful role models for their peers.

Tips/suggestions for coaches considering doing pro-bono work
Do the work/play that you love. This is MY PURPOSE...It's why I'm on the planet. I would pay money (and have before) to do this sometimes. 

Share the special passion and parts of yourself that you hide away. It's an incredible opportunity to expand and discover your true passion, power and purpose. It is about as unconditional as you can get yourself and as rewarding as having your own child.

Other Comments
Unless we move away from the divisive behaviors of our past, we are doomed to loneliness, separation, loss, pain and anger. 

Do you matter if you don't do anything to make a difference?

You never ever know who your coachee can turn out to be, and what they could do for themselves, their families, their city or the planet. You have an incredible opportunity to put your hand out into the storm of life and save a struggling Soul. Just imagine what kind of a difference you can make, and the difference they could make.

Unless we build the bridges together, we will never get to the other side.
"If you don't share - you obviously don't care."

I do because I can! What does it cost to assist another Soul to feel Worthy, Valuable and Validated? We ALL count! - Just because some don't have the funds shouldn't mean they should go without.

I look forward to the day when what we do commercially is designed to support and empower all of us. And away from the concept of charging what the market will bear. Its all about people and profits. 
Not just Profits...Profits...Profits....

pro-bono clients: female prisoners
coach judy irving

My life is continually enriched by the work I do with female prisoners. The program is voluntary on both our parts which is the only way it works. 

Some of the people I have coached for free
The women whether incarcerated for 2 years or life have many of the same needs and challenges. The size will vary from a core group of 4 to maybe 8 or 10 from week to week. 

Most of the work we do is based on personal foundation, spirituality, forgiveness, shifting perspectives/attitudes, reframing, owning responsibility and looking for positive possibilities. Some of the women come once or twice then find they are not ready and won't return.

Outcomes/benefits of coaching this group
Those who do the work come to recognize the self-imposed prisons we all create, with or without walls. In working to build self esteem, understanding, and self-forgiveness they amazingly begin to see how they can be a role model for their inmates as well as for those they love on the outside.

As the possibility for parole approaches, many possibilities begin to emerge and can be frightening. Such questions as, "What if I don't make it? How will earn a living? How can I say No? What will it be like to have all the outside pressures again? What will it be like to see so and so? Can I ever make this up to my children?" Setting boundaries, taking small
steps, calling upon inner strength, and learning new skills are all part of
the coaching process.

Why I do this work
Since I have a ministerial background, I positioned myself to do Spiritual
Coaching and went through the chaplain to gain admission as a volunteer. I will have to admit, most weeks, I do not look forward to getting dressed and driving the 50 miles round trip to the correctional facility and yet afterwards, my spirits are higher, my energy is greater and I feel blessed to have the courage, the knowledge, the skills and the understanding to assist these women. It is my way of acknowledging that we are all far more alike than we will ever be different and as we give to others we indeed give to ourselves.

Issue Sponsor: Passive Revenue Streams e-Course.


Passive Revenue 
Streams e-Course available 
-- free* --
this October 
from CoachVille.

*Free to anyone who joins CoachVille by September 30, 2001
Some of the hottest buzz right now in the coaching community is around this question:

How can I turn my coaching expertise into multiple sources of automatic, passive, recurring, permanent, value-added, and scalable revenue streams?

Great question!

And, until now, there hasn't been a comprehensive answer.  

Introducing the Passive Revenue Streams e-course from
CoachVille -- completely free to our current members and to anyone who joins CoachVille  by September 30, 2001.  (Lifetime membership in CoachVille is only US$79 and includes scores of resources and services.)

In this e-course (course-by-email, web-tour, and RealAudio), you will learn EXACTLY how to generate streams of passive revenue, from multiple sources.

Why does passive revenue matter?  

1.  Because at some point, you're going to want to take a some time off from coaching -- and have a way to have the mortgage paid while you're gone.  

2.  Or, perhaps you're curious about e-commerce and info-products and e-books and you want to get your arms around this whole subject.  

3.  Or, perhaps you're building up a large network or e-subscriber list and you want to know how to maximize the revenue from these individuals.

The point is, that the most successful coaches don't just rely upon 1-1 or group coaching for their livelihood  They have arranged for several other sources of revenue -- some completely passive and some semi-passive -- that they use to fund their saving plans and to even out the ebb and flow of revenue from 1-1 or group clients.

You see, to be a coach today, means that you're 'coaching' people far beyond just the tradition 1-1 model.  With e-products and e-systems, you could conceivably be coaching hundreds or thousands -- or perhaps even millions over your professional lifetime.  This, thanks to e-technology, e-marketing, e-commerce and e-subscribers.

What will I be able to do as a result of the Passive Revenue for Coaches e-course...  

You will learn how to:
1. Package and convert what you know about life or clients into a sale-able e-book.
2. Add a fully automated shopping cart to your site, with multiple products.
3. License and master-license your personal/professional programs to companies and trainers.
4. Craft courses-by-email and use these to generate immediate and recurring revenue.
5. Build e-relationships with the buying public, one step at a time.
6. Build an active R&D Team, which will become the source and beta testers of your best ideas and products.
7. Set up a membership site -- just like
CoachVille -- 
8. Find other people's products to offer/market to your network and receive an affiliate commission.
9. Set up your own affiliate program where others market your e-products and services.
10. Expand your thinking about how to deliver coaching, using e-methods vs traditional methods.

Why not join now and get started early on this e-course -- as well as gain immediate access to the scores of e-courses, client forms, coaching models, marketing resources and other tools-of-the-trade...
