Advice for leaders who want to be extraordinary coaches
This is an FAQ for great leaders who want to be great coaches - with a handful of high-performing high-fee clients.
I am the co-author of The Prosperous Coach, a book that has struck a chord in the coaching world. It’s sold 70,000 copies, it’s been in the top 20 books on coaching for almost 7 years and it still sells 1,000 copies a month. I’m the founder of Project Kairos, a program for coaches who are creating high-performing, high-fee clients. And I’m the founder of 4PC, a community of extraordinary leaders.
I’ve helped thousands of coaches launch their coaching business. And I’ve helped many of the most exclusive and successful coaches on the planet get to their next level. And all of the questions in this FAQ come from questions I’ve been asked.
There are many types of coaching businesses. Depending on your business —
or what stage you are at in your business — some of them won’t apply.
The rules are: I’m going to give no explanations. Just listen to me.

Here's the "Real" Bio...
My name is Rich Litvin. I’ve been bullied. I’ve been fired. I’ve struggled financially. I’ve felt lonely. I’ve lost loved ones. I’ve also coached clients who’ve lost children, had life threatening illnesses, had miscarriages, been abused, been assaulted and been through bankruptcy.
But I have also been a leader, a coach and an advisor to high level leaders for almost 30 years. I’ve faced many challenges (in life and business) and I’ve coached many people through life-changing experiences. And I’ve been privy to the secret challenges of elite clients, from Navy Seals to multi-millionaires. (Hint: they have the same challenges as the rest of us!)
Oh, and I'm an introvert at heart who is secretly relieved when plans for a night out are cancelled!
