If you are serious about pursuing YOU University Coach Training, please read all of the following carefully.
1. What does the program include?
2. What is the basis of your work - the coaching and the course?
The basis of all my work is the processing and expressing of emotions - to get through the negative to the positive and to release the negativity into the light. I developed the process over my years of my own healing journey and the work with my clients and trainees.
I have been involved in personal growth personally and professionally since 1980. I am both a student and teacher by temperament. I used to teach elementary and junior high children until I discovered that what I love to teach is of a different nature than Reading, Writing and Arithmetic.
In my own personal journey of life and healing, I discovered that once my emotions were on the way to being healed, my life dramatically changed. My life dramatically changed because I was no longer being totally run by my pile of old emotions and false beliefs about myself which were a result of those unheard and unhealed emotions. I also observed that this is true for most people and that once they got the correct tools to deal with their emotions, their lives changed dramatically.
3. Can the coaches also help me brainstorm for my career or figure out how to make my relationships work, for example?
Absolutely. They will be able to help you in all areas of your life – relationships, career, friendships, health, body image, finances, transitions, etc. They, like any other life coach, will not do the work for you to achieve what you want in all areas of your life but will support you and guide you on how you can do it. They will also help you hold onto or rediscover the dreams you gave up on.
4. What is the difference between Emotion-Based Coaching and therapy?
I personally have very little background in therapy. My learning about the tools and ways to heal came via a spiritual program for eating disorders and the Making Love Workshops given by John Gray and Barbara deAngelis many years ago.
So I asked my coaches about their experience of both and here’s what 2 of them had to say:
My experience of psychiatrists was therapy but not drugs, although in the UK and USA it might be different. They were definitely there to get me to look deep into my past and work out why I had whatever issues I had. What I learned when I started looking into training was that a therapist/counselor helped you get over a certain issue or problem that was holding you back, whereas a coach helped you to work out what you wanted to achieve in life and how to get there. I think with our programme we kind of straddle the two because we do the work on our past in order to then move forward....
I've been to many through the years. Psychologists, psychiatrists, pastors, counselors. Each in their own way has been helpful to me. The main hindrance I have found with these professionals (vs. our way of coaching) is they are distant, they do not share their own experiences, so any empathy they feel stays within then and is not really felt by the patient/client, this hinders a connection that is needed for healing and opening up. I find that trust and connection blossom much more between coach/client relationships than between psychologists/patients. There are some professionals in the field that do really care and give and teach tools and methods during the course of the therapy. I also feel that everything is evolving and people, in general, are requiring much more from their professional helpers. People today are much more conscious and knowledgeable than before. Even with this knowledge, though, it's not enough. People are needing connection, empathy, real tools, they want to feel that they matter and not like just another number.

5. How long is the journey through YOU University and what work does it entail?
The training is a year long and entails a weekly group coaching call with no more than five people in a group. Classes are always open.
It also requires work to be done online in the YOU University class which is on this site.
Starting in the fourth or fifth month of training, a coach trainee will begin to learn how to attract clients and can begin working with them immediately. You do not have to decide to be a coach, to attend YOU University or you can be a coach and not want to participate the way it is laid out in #7.
6. What is the cost?
YOU University Coach training is $150/month and is an opportunity to grow a real business (see #6). If you just want to go through YOU University and NOT become a coach, the cost is to be worked out with you and the coach with whom you choose to work.
7. You mention that there is a great income opportunity. How does that work? (This only applies to those who are on the coach training path.)
Several months ago I was led to meet a man very knowledgeable in finances. He owns a personal growth company and he has previously taught finance at a high level. What I learned was a way to help coaches earn a living. He had run a survey of the coaching industry and discovered that coaches spend up to $10,000/year for training. And the average coach earns $6,000/year. That’s great for a hobby but not for a living. Additionally, the average clients stays 3.5 months. If you do the math, you will see that if you always want 5 clients, for example, you will have to attract 15 in a year. As a coach I just met said, “I'm not coaching at the moment, I have no energy to sell myself to get the activity. Only few clients since I started. I might start again at one point.” When I asked her if she loved coaching, she said, “Oh, yeah!”
So this is why I am so grateful to the man I met for teaching me how to change this. What if you only had to attract 5 clients and they only had to do the same but everyone would, with work, earn a great living? He taught me how to borrow the revenue share arrangement that is used by the network marketing industry and apply it to the coaching industry. Someone in a personal development leadership group I’m in said something like, “If you have a way for coaches to earn a living, you are doing a great service.” (I’ll take credit for seeing the value of the idea and applying it to this business. But the way I see the world and my life, I was meant to meet this man so that this work could spread. My intention is that YOU University Coaching and YOU University itself will be the most successful personal/spiritual development company on the planet.)
When a Coach has five people on their Coach Trainee Group, that group becomes their Level 1 Group. When each of those five have five of their own, the first Coach has 25 on their Level 2. When those 25 each have 5 that is 125 on Level 3 and so on. You will not get rich quick but if you stick to it, you can make a heck of a living. Here is the math:
Level 1 = 5 people
Level 2 = 25 people
Level 3 = 125 people
Level 4 = 625 people
Level 5 = 3125 people
Level 6 = 15,625 people
Level 7 = 78,125 people
Monthly membership dues are $150. YOU University Coaching shares that revenue with the Coaches for their efforts in Training and Coaching their Training Group. Out of each $150 a percentage is paid for each Level as follows:
Level 1: 20%
Level 2: 10%
Level 3: 5%
Level 4: 4%
Level 5: 3%
Level 6: 2%
Level 7: 1%
Total: 45% or $67.50 paid out of each $150 training fee
Here is what the monthly income would be when each level is filled out:
Level 1: 5 people x $150 = $150 x 20% = $150 (At this level your monthly fee is paid for.)
Level 2: 25 people x $150 = $3,750 x 10% = $375
Level 3: 125 people x $150 = $6,250 x 5% = $937.50
Level 4: 625 people x $150 = $31,250 x 4% = $3750.
Level 5: 3,125 people x $150 = $468,750 x 3% = $14,062.50
Level 6: 15,625 people x $150 = $2,343,750 x 2% = $46,875
Level 7: 78,125 people x $150 = $11,718,750 x 1% = $117,187.50
Remember also, each of these income streams are cumulative.
A 7-Figures Income
The results of this means you really only have to have FIVE clients. Additionally, of course, you can have private clients also if you so choose.
