“Rich is a world-class coach and one of the most naturally confident people I know. If you’re ready to make a real and tangible difference in your life I highly recommend you work with Rich.”

“Rich is a man of deep authenticity, passion & courage. He is also one of the most skilled & intuitive coaches around. I strongly recommend Rich to anyone looking to take their lives to the next level.”

—Jamie Smart / NLP Trainer & CEO of Salad Ltd

    Real People. Real Stories. Real Results.


    “Rich, you help your clients create miracles. And you helped me create miracles… From weight loss (8 kgs); to fitness (first half-marathon in less than 2 hours); to work (hired for a dream job then successfully led a turnaround strategy leading to 100% sales growth); to awards (voted Business Woman of the Year – China); and even motherhood (I became a new mum again and I’m loving my 3 kids).

    But most importantly working with you helped me gain a firm belief that whatever I choose to create, I will. Effortlessly.

    Rich, you are one of the top 5 people who has most impacted my life. I am grateful.”

    —Jasmine Keel / ACMA, ACC | Zürich, Switzerland

    “Rich is a powerful force for inspiration and energy. He has an almost magical quality about him that makes it hard not to push yourself to grow and create more.’

    “My life and my impact have improved dramatically. I have become much clearer about how I work and how profoundly it changes my clients’ lives.

    By communicating more powerfully and delivering more value, I have proposed—and had accepted—strong five-figure fees that just a few short years or even months ago would have seemed impossible to me. And my income has sky-rocketed.

    Not only that, but the results I have created feel entirely effortless, and I am now working only with extraordinary clients who inspire me with their bold vision for their lives.

    In addition to that, this year I have met one of my heroes—something that also seemed impossible to me a few months ago. And I am now launching The Extraordinary People Project, which has me excited about what is to come and the impact that I can make in the world. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to realize what I have achieved and to see that it is real.

    Working with Rich has been life-changing. I have a deep sense of being heard and understood, and that is both rare and incredibly powerful. Rich has an amazing ability to know just when to challenge me and raise the stakes, and just when to gently support me in a way that has me feel both safe to be myself, and inspired and challenged to dream bigger and explore what I am truly capable of.”

    “When I first reached out to you, I felt like I had reached the maximum number of coaching clients I could handle, but I was making the minimum amount of money I could live on — and I knew something was wrong. I wasn’t articulating the full scope of what I was actually doing — and I certainly wasn’t charging for it.

    When I started I had one cookie-cutter approach to clients. Everyone got the same deal in terms of time, cost, etc. Through the exposure to 5 other coaches, and having the laser focus on my practice that the Salon offers, I’m developing new ways of working with people. In just the first six weeks of the Salon, I’ve created a new group coaching program, filled it halfway, started writing individual proposals for new potential clients that are tailored specifically to them, and generated a completely new calendar of events for the next 12 months.

    Gradually, through the assignments you’ve given me, I am starting to see myself as more powerful and less inadequate than I did when I started the Salon. It is possible that, ultimately, seeing myself clearly — and allowing others to see me fully — will be the biggest benefit of this program.”

    —Monica Day / Executive Coach
    Megan Sillito

    “My business has changed more in my year working with Rich than at any other time in my 18 year career as a coach. I am forever grateful.

    When I met Rich, I had a full client load and I was also running group programs. But I was still doing $150/hour sessions and getting burned out. I was so good at launching people into the lives of their dreams but I didn’t have a dream life myself, as I was working all the time. I was even considering leaving the coaching field.

    Now 90% of my clients are on a contract; my fees have quadruped and I almost doubled my coaching income in the last year. I now have a lifestyle that includes travel and time off. And I am creating my practice to be as fun for me as it is powerful for my clients.

    Rich has a combination of inside-out and outside-in coaching that creates results. Some coaches just focus on external goals and others just on beliefs. We need both if we are to be truly successful at anything.

    Rich has a natural ability to see and bring out your unique genius as a coach so your work can be a full expression of your unique talents. If a coach is willing, Rich can facilitate a transformation in your practice that will generate wealth and well being on levels you might not yet believe possible for yourself.”

    “This program is helping me to be one of the best, most impact-full, and prosperous coaches in the world — I am doing it all while still being me — and I just signed my first $40,000 client.

    Before the Salon, my business was in a transitional lull. I was bored and uninspired. Easy and boring clients were falling off my roster.

    Within a month of our group starting, I’d proposed $50K of coaching and closed $20K — more than enough to cover my fee — even before we really got going. Oh…and these new clients, and the ones still on my roster are INSPIRING. ONLY INSPIRING from now on.

    In the world of coaches, there are so many fish in the sea — and it was difficult to find the top-of-the-line coaches who inspire me, who are better than me, who I really need to help sharpen my own skills. In the Prosperous Coach Salon, I always feel pushed to the edge of my talent — and I know I am getting better.

    The depths and details of the communication from Rich and between the group members — especially the reports and emails in between sessions — is so impactful. Getting beyond theory and into the fine details of client creation and communication has been eye-opening — even for a seasoned coach like myself. “

    —Allison Crow / Intuitive Life and Business Coach
    Karen Portale

    “The most valuable thing I got from coaching with Rich was the ability to see myself as having infinite potential. That you could see me as something more, inspired me to see myself as something more. If you are considering coaching with Rich… and you’re not sure… GO FOR IT! It will change your life. ”

    —Karen Portale, MD / Emergency Room Physician
    Jacqueline Bennett

    “It has been a pleasure and a joy working with Rich. I feel like the ugly duckling who turned into a beautiful swan. I now live in possibility and wonder, less afraid of criticism, no longer afraid of the word “No”. Rich has helped me to focus on what I really want and then go out and create it. He is gentle when I need it and challenging when I don’t know I need it! Both to great effect. Rich, you have helped me think differently and reach for the stars.

    Rich helps me see who I really am: a strong, powerful, loving, fun woman. He helped me see that my vulnerabilities are part of my strengths. And I no longer have to pretend I’m confident and successful. I have created space and FREEDOM in my life.”

    —Jacqueline A. Bennett MSc / Transformational Coach
      Doug McGhee

      “What a great weekend. I appreciate the time energy and thought Rich put forth to provide a very high level opportunity to bring specific current coaching challenges to the facilitators for coaching and forward movement. This was not a intensive to bring your world of suffering and limitations—leave those at home.I know now that I can be busy or remarkable but not both—I choose remarkable.”

      —Doug McGhee
      Karen Davis

      “Rich and Steve are two of the top coaches in the world. They were very generous with sharing their knowledge, successes and even their failures, and it was obvious that they truly care about each person in the room. They were both very entertaining and time flew by. There was also homework prior, during and after the Intensive. If you’re serious about your practice and you’re considering taking your practice to higher levels you need to spend time with them.”

      —Karen Davis
      Kelley Diaz

      “This intensive dives deep into what it means to be a coach, rather than how to be a coach. You get the opportunity to be amongst coaches of all levels who demonstrate their value of coaching by opening up and being coached by Rich in front of the group. There really isn’t any advice or information given without a discussion or demonstration of its practical application.I’ve stopped thinking I need to create the perfect system or website or really that I even need to have some official qualification to start serving as a coach.”

      —Kelley Diaz

      “It’s a powerful coaching intensive that instructs you on how to get out of your head and into action. Also honors the principle that there is no perfect one way to coach. The perfect way is the way YOU choose to coach. You don’t have to have it all figured out (as you’ll never figure it all out). Just get started and make adjustments as the process unfolds.”

      —Terry Gibson
      Cindy Levorah

      “Everyone in the room was in the same place. Some were more engaged and others still figuring it out. But no one was an expert. Each person was looking to better their services and follow their path. And I see that there is no ‘one’ path — only my path. While there are tools and many options I just have to find out what works for me. It was a life changing intensive and I truly enjoyed Rich’s willingness to give and give more to ensure we had an overflowing cup.”

      —Cindy Levorah

      I started changing the way I communicate and it has already created a significant difference in the way other people are responding to me. Just coming from a place of passion and service has made it a completely new experience. I went to an event recently and spoke with a woman who sat down at my table. She ended up wanting my card after what was an easy, open, and flowing conversation. This is huge for me because previous conversations about what I do always left me feeling really yucky.”

      —Vered Dell
      Lisa Grech

      “After the workshop I presented a proposal to a client. She likes to negotiate, so I gave her three different options. As I sat in the review meeting with her, I listened to her talk herself into option two. I heard myself say in my head, “Stay quiet. She is selling herself.” She said she needed a few days to think on it and yesterday I received an email that she wants to move forward!”

      —Lisa Grech
      Brian Yining Wu

      “This intensive has transformed the way I run my coaching practice. I feel much more relaxed around money. I no longer have the need to constantly prove myself worthy. And I know that I can create clients from a place of love and service instead of from a place of neediness.If you want to work with only a few high-achieving clients per year, and if you hate traditional marketing and sales, do yourself and your future clients a favor and go to this intensive. Rich is a master of client creation – observe how he is being at the intensive and apply it, and your life will transform.”

      —Brian Yining Wu
      Brad Billingsley

      “The Prosperous Coach Intensive is for coaches who are ready to go big and take their coaching and their business up three levels. It is not for the feint of heart. This was the most powerful professional development experience I’ve had and has challenged me to play a much bigger game with my clients and my prospects. If you are committed to turning pro as a coach, this is the place to do it. My confidence has soared as a result of this intensive. I now have the courage and compassion to share my truth with my client, holding nothing back…I’ve only been back one day and I’ve already had transformational experiences with several clients! I learned a whole new way of approaching referrals to my business, which is counter intuitive to what I’ve done for the past 23 years. I no longer take the “easy way out” in a coaching conversation, rather I speak my truth with the intention of serving my clients deeply.”

      —Brad Billingsley
      Amir Karkouti

      “Having been in the NLP, Hypnosis, Change work industry for over 15 years; this intensive is absolutely nothing like any of the other seminars. Rich didn’t give us information on how to do it…he demonstrated right in front of us and the power alone was enough for me to “get it” and apply it immediately. The enrollment process has become fun and easy and I look forward to waking up and having powerful conversations without awkwardly trying to get money from people. The shift for me was that it doesn’t matter what I say. I don’t need a script. I don’t need a plan and I don’t have to “set up” before a meeting. I just have to show up. I’ve gotten more clients and more referrals from this process. It may seem counterintuitive; but you quickly realize that this is how it’s supposed to be and Rich demonstrates its effectiveness over and over again throughout the three days.”

      “Since your intensive, I have traveled to Japan and Nepal with private clients, all expenses paid plus an additional $31,000 dropped into my account. I am currently in Australia working with another one of my clients (3 months coaching, plus a week in their home in Australia for $25,000 +expenses), and just enrolled another client for a six month $27,500 agreement. And best of all, the impact and effectiveness of my work has massively increased, as well.”

        Praise for The Prosperous Coach


        “A must-read for every coach. Rich Litvin and Steve Chandler offer a revolutionary approach to creating a career and business that you love. No internet marketing. No email list. Just one great relationship at a time.”

        —Marci Shimoff / #1 NY Times bestselling author of Love for No Reason and Happy for No Reason

        The Prosperous Coach grabs you by the collar in Chapter 1, and doesn’t let go. My heart is still racing. This is one of the most direct, bold, and provocative books I’ve ever read. You are doing your clients a disservice if you don’t finish it and act upon it immediately.”

        —Derek Sivers / founder, CD Baby and author of Anything You Want
          Krisztina Kohlhaas photo

          “When I read and applied the concepts in The Prosperous Coach by Steve Chandler and Rich Litvin, I transitioned virtually overnight from a struggling coaching business to a lucrative six-figure practice built by referral and invitation only.”

          —Krisztina Kohlhaas / President, International Coaching Federation, San Francisco Bay Area

          “When I first read The Prosperous Coach, I was feeling spread too thin as a coach: with too many clients on short-term contracts, I felt like I was running faster and faster to stay in the same place, always needing to find new clients.

          Now, I work with a handful of very carefully selected clients, helping them achieve extraordinary things. Instead of running around after dozens of clients, I can slow down and give a few special people deep and sustained attention. And I’m helping them achieve bigger goals than ever before.

          Business has never been better, I’ve never been happier as a coach, and I have more time for important things like writing poetry and playing on the beach with my kids.

          The best part about this approach? Your success as a coach is not dependent on marketing and sales gimmicks, but on your ability to serve clients so powerfully they never forget it.”

          —Mark McGuinness / Poet and creative coach,

          “Chandler and Litvin are rapidly acquiring international guru status in the professional coaching world. By implementing the potent content of this extraordinarily good book, backed by your own commitment, your future as a prosperous coach is assured.”

          —Dusan Djukich / innovator of Straight-Line Coaching and the best-selling author of Straight-Line Leadership: Tools for Living with Velocity and Power in Turbulent Times

          The Prosperous Coach rocked my world by throwing out of the window everything I thought I should be doing to market myself as a coach. It offered me great relief to know that there was an effortless path to creating high-end clients. Talk about counter-intuitive, Litvin and Chandler take the focus off the busy-work of marketing and put it back on pure connection with the client, where it belongs. Read this book, do what they tell you, and a prosperous coaching practice is inevitable.”

          —Mindie Kniss / Coach

          “Chandler and Litvin, are the best in the world at supporting coaches to build a prosperous practice. They are at the top of the game. There is nobody better.”

          —Christine Livingston / Executive Coach

          “If I drop this pen, I know what will happen. It will fall. That’s the law of gravity at work. We get that. What Chandler and Litvin get is the law of crushing it as a coach. You practice these disciplines – you crush it. Period.”

          —Chris Dorris / Personal Transformation Coach

          The Prosperous Coach should be mandatory reading for anyone considering a coaching career or joining a coaching program. Litvin and Chandler strike the right balance between teaching you how to be the best possible coach and teaching you how to make money doing it. Its a comprehensive study of the way any coach needs to build and maintain client relationships. This book is a ‘hell yes!’”

          —Bryan Franklin / Top 1% Executive Coach, California Leadership

          “This book will shake you up. It will challenge you. But if you open your mind and lean into the teachings, it has the potential to transform your coaching as well as your bottom line. This is far more than a book about making more money. It is about creating vastly more meaning, value, beauty, and happiness in yourself and the world. But beware, there are no magic bullets here. You will have to show up and serve boldly in order to get the results they promise. And why wouldn’t you?”

          —Molly Gordon / Master Certified Coach

          “This is a unique book — a manifesto for a new kind of coaching. I have clients today because I applied the principles and disciplines outlined in these pages. It’s the most useful and practical book on coaching I’ve read.”

          —Chris Morris / Coach

          The Prosperous Coach is full of such powerful insights that struck me as I read it – again and again and again. In fact, I literally just walked out of an event I’d paid a sizable 4-figures to attend because of one of the insights that Rich and Steve share.

          There are a many excellent tips in this book. They are laid out simply and clearly and, most importantly, they are actionable. If you follow them, not only will they make your coaching practice more successful, but your life full of ease, spaciousness, and freedom.”

          —Rachel Rofe / best-selling author and founder of Never Have A Bad Day Again

          “As someone who has been coaching for a long time, I wish The Prosperous Coach had existed when I was learning. It would have saved me so much time and energy. Whether you are a new coach or you are an experienced coach who is ready to get to the next level, I highly recommend you read this book if you wish to achieve prosperity as a coach.”

          —Sophie Chiche / founder and curator of lifebyme

          “Litvin is a rare breed: a world-class coach who is also an expert at understanding the business of coaching. After reading and applying the strategies in The Prosperous Coach, you will be, too. Become a ‘fearless coach’, Litvin will show you how.”

          —Jamie Smart / Author of Clarity: Clear Mind, Better Performance, Bigger Results
          Michael Neill

          “The sad truth of the coaching industry is that many of the most caring people give up after a time because they can’t make enough money to survive and thrive. Steve Chandler and Rich Litvin are on a mission to give every coach the chance to succeed on their own terms, and they do it with a directness and humor that makes learning fun. I’ve hired them to teach on a number of my programs, and even after 22 years in the business I always take away at least one new thing to increase my own impact and income!”

          —Michael Neill / founder of Supercoach Academy and Author of The Inside-Out Revolution: The Only Thing You Need to Know to Change Your Life Forever

          “There are tons of books out there which can teach you marketing tactics and sales strategies.

          —Mandy Evans / Author of Emotional Options: A handbook for Happiness and Traveling Free: How to Recover from the Past

          “Rich Litvin and Steve Chandler are business thought leaders who count. They shatter the myth that you can’t create wealth whilst making a big impact on people’s lives. The Prosperous Coach will help you create a new story that when you and your clients find joy, meaning and emotional connection you can feel inspired and make money.”
