Life / Success Coaching through Tennis

Posted on November 22, 2013 at 10:31am 0 Comments

Recently, I have gone professional with life coaching.  Since 2010 I intentionally began to give life lessons through Tennis, but really those lessons began much earlier.  So, lately I have heard the calling to not only teach Tennis, but to coach life.  The results have been amazing, and energizing to my clients and to me personally.  I want to reach out to you.  Do you know anyone who would benefit from a powerful and fearless two hour conversation, phone is fine, in regard to their Tennis,…

I found this great site called Fiverr.com, which allows people to prepay for a $5 amount for a wide range of services.  As for me, send me a clip of you playing for about 1 minute and I will edit the video, and give you at least ONE strong concept to work on and develop your game.  Generally, I can get this done in two days turnaround, sometimes much faster.

I have decided that I like my new career as a mobile Tennis professional who goes here and there teaching.  Recently I dedicated myself to helping follow up with new people to Tennis, especially in the East Bay Tennis group.

Great interview, Bill!  Thanks for sharing my question (and fine tuning it too).  I thought Alex's answer was very interesting, re: his ability to spot talent.  And that all is not lost - there still is a chance that Camila can have her "come to jesus" moment.  Thanks for the plug too,

Hi Bill,

Yeah, that would be great...I'm in Richmond near the water where all the condo complexes are...I'm a pretty solid (but rusty) 4.0.

thanks,

Greg.

So Bill, post your videos here:

http://tennisopolis.com/video/video/addEmbed

You can use the youtube embed code and BE SURE to set it large, 640x480 is a nice big size.  This will be better than the old vids you embeded.

Thanks,

Mark

I like to keep informed on what's going on and available out there.  I'm pretty happy with my job right now though.

This is going out only to my friends on Tennisopolis.  I'm trying to build some buzz on facebook for Tennisopolis.  I couldn't think of anything extremely clever, so I figured giving away cool stuff always works!  I need your help today;  To enter, just LIKE the post our our fb page.  And stay tuned, we're going to be having more giveways on fb in the near future.

Here's the link to the Verdasco autograph:

Oh wow! How I miss San Ramon! I used to live @ Alcosta and Crow Canyon.

I'm here in Chicago, IL and it's a beautiful city. Too bad the weather is not the same. I recently joined Tennisopolis to get in some games and join the group for other events.
