“If the best golfer in the world is still working with a coach, then it’s pretty arrogant for the rest of the world to say, ‘Well, yeah, everyone else should have a coach, but not me.’” These are the words of today’s guest, David Wood, who believes that even the most successful people in the world need coaches. David is a former consulting actuary to Fortune 100 companies. He has built the world's largest coaching business, becoming number one on Google for life coaching, and coaching thousands of hours in 12 countries around the globe. David coaches high-performing business owners to double their revenue, along with doubling their time off by focusing on less and being 30 percent more courageous in their business and career. Today, we are privileged to have him on the show as he shares some of the biggest obstacles to happiness and how to overcome them. Learn David’s three principles for success, why you should ask yourself, “What would I do if I was fearless?”, and how to find your edge, lean into it, and dance with it. If you want to make sure that you are getting everything you want in life so that, on your deathbed, you can look back and say, “I gave it everything,” tune in today!
