However, you won't pay $5,000. I don't even expect you to pay $1,500. Nor $1,000. Nor $750 or $500. Not even $200 or half of that. As a potential or new coach, I want CoachVille's membership to be affordable and fair to everyone, so I made it FREE.  I would like you to...

Membership Is Worth Thousands Of Dollars!
"Day after day I am amazed at what I receive from you. Every email contains professional, insightful, powerful information that I can use in my profession. Every time I think you have exceeded my expectations to the fullest, you do it again. My CoachVille membership is worth thousands of dollars - I can't believe what I've already received. Thank you!" - From Dotti Templeton,  

CoachVille Is For Coaches And More!
"I'm a freelance travel writer, not a coach, and CoachVille helped me create another way to profit from my expertise. Thanks to the skills I've learned from the Full Practice and Cyber Skills programs, I've launched a travel writing website (, teach online writing courses, and just completed an e-workbook on travel writing that I will sell from my site. My goal is to be 'the' travel writing expert, and I'm well on my way, thanks to your superb programs. Thanks." - From Flo Conner, 

CoachVille Is An Inspiring Environment!
"I have been most encouraged by Thomas' open-handed sharing of ideas and experiences, and most challenged by his creativity and steep curve for taking an idea and making it real. As a result, my coaching practice has taken off in the past 100 days because of this wonderful environment of generosity and inspiration!" - From Marc Fey,
