Tommy Macken
Hi, I’m Tommy. I’m your success coach for the next 28 days. Born and reared in Ireland where I live with my wife Sandra, I have worked most of my life in the motor business. In 2009 I studied and qualified as a life

coach because I wanted to improve my skills in motivating
and coaching staff. I discovered a new profession that
actually produces very positive results. In 2011, affected by the economic crisis, I wrapped up my motor business, and
free time led me to look at life coaching along with my
other skills to help me discover which direction is best for me going forward. At fifty, I really wanted my own life to
take a different direction. Wanting is a bit like wishing; I know how to coach, now I have to do things for myself,
start all over again. I’m lucky I have plenty of experience and I’ve achieved my life long ambitions to own and
operate a successful dealership. It’s now time to bank this success and move forward.
I am not an academic, and this program was written for ordinary people like myself. Thankfully success such as running a business is for everyone. There are no educational requirements; one only needs the right attitude. Please feel free to email me tommymacken@goforlifecoaching.com and I assure you I will reply. -- Tommy

It is a duty to develop unceasingly one’s
intelligence,
To strengthen one’s character,
To become a creature of thought and will;
It is a duty to view life with joy and to face it with
energy.
Finally it is a duty to be able to understand one’s
time and not to despair of the future.
Elizabeth Liseur.

Introduction
I sat looking at the screen on my Dell, learning how to build a web site in a day for a course on web-based businesses. Fascinating but true. I have been working on building a web site for another great business idea; however I was overwhelmed by the engine that runs the business from web hosts to name hosts and things like that. The teacher tells me how important it is for business success to give something free, to build a list. He talks on about eBooks, how easy it is to get information; copy, change detail and paste. One only needs a domain and host to continue. I was lucky I had a domain name -- “goforlifecoaching.com” -that I had registered this as part of my final assignment in a course titled Executive and Life Coaching. Cutting and pasting is totally against my way of thinking, but I continue with the process.

Later on, my mind being active and alert……
Why did I continue paying for the domain name two years later? What if my web idea doesn’t work?
Why not do what this teacher says and try this internet marketing lark? What about life coaching?
Decision time…..
I have plenty of time on my hands.
The cost is minimal.
Way forward…..
When I don’t know what to do, I go with the artist strategy. Dip the brush into paint and dab it on a blank canvas, follow with a stroke, then another and before long…. I put pen to paper, drew a circle; a wheel, a brilliant coaching tool. I discovered the best material was deep inside my head, this process, this way forward and this eBook.

This is not just an eBook; this is a coaching program. I thought long and hard about writing this. Is a program like this good for people? If so, what are the benefits? The answer is simple: life coaching can be...
