Life Coaching Tools – Special Reports
Coaching is a rewarding and satisfying career but it is one that is seldom maximized by most coaches. Most coaches see between ten and twenty five clients per week and that is the extent of their coaching business. This coaching business model limits your income to the number of hours you are willing to coach and the amount per session that you can charge.
Sounds Good so What is a Product?
A product is any branded educational resource such as a teleclass, telecourse, report, ebook, workbook, workshop or anything else you can produce once and sell to many people. Now I know a lot of coaches think they could not create a product but that is not true. If you have a target coaching niche then you have a passion for that niche and they have problems, challenges, and goals that they are using coaching to achieve. People will buy things that help them solve their problems.
There are some very simple ways to create products that are not complicated or technical.
First, let’s take a look at some simple and quick way to make products for your coaching business.
You can provide a special report full of information on a topic or issue that is of high interest to your target coaching niche. For example, if you are a life transition coach you could do a product on how to respond to and what to do when you are laid off from a job.
Special reports can be anywhere from ten to fifty pages. Simply write the report and create a PDF file that you can deliver to customers digitally. Special Reports are generally priced fairly low around seventeen to twenty dollars per report. They are often used as the first product in your product marketing funnel.
Creating a report is easy.
Just think of a common issue that people in your target coaching niche face and address it in your special report. Make sure your headline is enticing and clear about the topic. Explore the challenge and the major suffering it causes people in your target coaching niche then go on to explore the smaller pains created by the main challenge. Discussing the challenges in detail will let your target coaching niche know that you are in tune with their needs.
Next examine all the possible solutions and give directions for the client to discover additional solutions. Cite examples of how different solutions have worked for others and give directions for what actions should be taken to implement solutions.
This type of special report will help potential coaching clients get to know, like and trust you. They will see that you are a coach who is familiar with their challenges and they will know that you are a resource for solutions.

The Educators Are Coming! The Educators Are Coming!
Summary: Never Mind the Barbarians Outside the Gates. What About the Ones Inside?
Ever since history began, there were always bad guys trying to smash through the gates. Sometimes the barbarians had a bigger army or greater cunning; but by common agreement barbarians are always the less civilized, the less educated. They were the outsiders, rude and crude, trying to pull down temples of wisdom they did not value or understand.
Goths and Vandals, Visigoths and Huns, Mongols and Vikings–they showed up on your borders and you knew hell was upon you.
In the 20th century, the West viewed the Communists as the new barbarians. A movie made in 1966–The Russians Are Coming — exactly captured the paranoia, the fear, the terror, that these Asiatic barbarians would swoop down on our society and destroy it.
Well, weve still got enemies outside the gate.
But I worry that the most dangerous people we have to deal with today are already inside the gates. They live amongst us, eating in our restaurants, strolling along our sidewalks, occupying positions of power and responsibility, pretending to be more or less like us. Indeed, the crucial differences are hidden in the mental chemistry, the ideological DNA. These invaders resemble us, but they seem not to be human, not in the usual way. They are like the pod people in Invasion of the Body Snatchers. And like the pod people, they seem determined to convert humans into empty shells.
How do they accomplish this? With battle axes and catapults? No, nothing so brutely physical. With massed armies? No, nothing so overtly militaristic. Will they burn books? No, nothing so obvious.
Their weapons will be subtle and sinuous, like a good sophistry. They will make the content inside the books unreachable and unknowable. Much like the Director in Brave New World, they will remove oxygen from our brains until most people are a Delta or an Epsilon, menial workers who do not need to decipher words on a page.
Huxley predicted a cold technological future: And this, said the Director, is the Fertilizing Room….After which they are sent down to the Embryo Store…We decant our babies as socialized human beings, as Alphas, or Epsilons, as future sewage workers or….future world controllers….Nothing like oxygen-shortage for keeping an embryo below par. Again he rubbed his hands.
Oxygen-shortage? Now that is subtle. You never know it happened. If you do, you dont care.
(With Controllers and Directors, were talking about the people at the very top, the most powerful commissars, the elite educators. Not teachers, of course; they have little power. On an internet forum, I noticed people arguing about the propriety of a state superintendent receiving a salary of 0,000. A minor administrative position, you might suppose; one that could be eliminated with scant loss to students or society. But perhaps you need to pay people 0,000 if their main duty is limiting oxygen.)
The oxygen, in our case, is the ability to read, write and do simple arithmetic, skills which must be diminished. Oxygen is knowledge and information, assets which must be kept rudimentary. Oxygen is tradition and character, intangibles which must be diluted and drained away until they are no longer recognizable. Oxygen is everything that, in 1900, was accepted as defining human-ness. That everything is the target of our new barbarians.
In 1983, A Nation At Risk, a prestigious government report concluded that public schools seemed to have been designed by an unfriendly foreign power.Note: Unfriendly. Foreign. Power. See, the barbarians had already arrived more than 30 years ago. They hid among us, pretending to be engaged in education but chiefly concerned with conquest, subduing us with social engineering and spirit-warping sophistries, producing ever more faux-education and anti-intellectualism, rendering the country dumb and dumber.
Their tactics were civilized and refined. And so silent. They know which is the superior race. They are. They know we are the barbarians in our own land. And thus they should inherit the earth, our earth. Its only fair.
Why else would we yield without a fight? Everyone knows thedirge of decline: 50 million functional illiterates, a million dyslexics, falling SAT scores, the Jaywalking people who seem to know nothing, falling national competitiveness, high school graduates who cant read the diploma. Our brains must have been starved.
The Russians are coming! We get used to this phrase. We think that the barbarians are outside and will some day invade. No, our barbarians invaded long ago and live right here…
Or so you might suppose if you study the public schools.

Importance of distance education
The importance of education has a new style. These days, there is no shortage of ways to get an online degree. Years ago, the only way to get a valid title was to go home and spend years on a college campus. Fortunately for people who work full-time jobs, entrepreneurs working at home or with families, this policy is now completely changed.
An online degree is done through courses taught by mail, which includes textbooks and proof sheets emailed or sent by other electronic methods to students for review. In return, the student completes the answer sheet for each course and returns to college. Online degree schools that specialize in this type of degree completion online programs offer a variety of programs ranging from diplomas to race to a degree.
When dealing with an online degree is essential that the students’ research potential of the accreditation granted to the institution.
Many are accredited by the DETC (Distance Education Council of formation), but this is usually not sufficient to ensure valid transfer credits to another university.
Students who are looking for a unique career diploma or diploma of specialization is that many of these online degree schools meet the needs of the importance of education. However, for those who wish to transfer college credits after a local college, these credits are not accepted. Many online degree colleges are nationally accredited, which is very respectable. To college credits to transfer to another university, however, credits require regional accreditation. The reason is that schools want to ensure that the transfer of college credits are taught with the same experience as other local schools, so that regional accreditation is so important in the search for an online degree.
With this in mind, the importance of education can be met as there are a number of benefits associated with university degree online. Among them, the opportunity to work at their own pace and without restriction, the convenience of studying at home or wherever is most comfortable. With an online degree program, the choice is yours. Before enrolling in a college degree online, prospective students are encouraged to research the history of the school, the number of years in business, and their report of satisfaction with the local Better Business Bureau. Furthermore, learning about the completion timeline, fees, refund policy, and current courses available are additional factors to consider in any online degree program
Court Reporting ? Education Training Options
A written transcript provides a legal record of a trial or court proceeding that may be used in future proceedings. It is the responsibility of the court reporter to ensure that all transcripts are documented correctly. Educational training options leave two main paths to take and students can complete a program inside a vocational school.
A certificate and associate’s degree program are the two main options for education. Students have to work through a preliminary step and a completion step before a career as a court reporter can be entered.
*Preliminary Step: Choose a Method
Formal training is required for this career field because the recorded information has to be accurate. The method of reporting students want to conduct directly affects the length of education needed. Stenography, electronic, and voice writing are three main methods available in court reporting.
To become a stenographer it takes two years of study while becoming a voice writer only takes around one year. While most programs approach learning in a general format many colleges have certain courses that can be taken to work exclusively in one area. Choosing a method is important and determines what level of education should be entered.
*Completion Step: General Approach
A certificate program is a good option for students that do not need or cannot complete a two-year associate’s degree program. Students are immersed in courses that teach them to properly use transcription equipment. Shorthand techniques, terminology and technical writing courses are covered to prepare students for the fast paced and technical speech used inside a courtroom. The different areas of court proceedings are broken down into manageable pieces of information. Courses cover the industry by including topics on reporting technology, medical terminology, legal terminology, and testimony transcription. A medical terminology course will familiarize students with human anatomy, disease and drug terminology. Students study by understanding the root of words, which is beneficial when listening to a trial or a physician’s testimony. Class work focuses on teaching students to be able to pronounce, spell, and explain medical words correctly.
To gain a more comprehensive understanding of the field students can enter an associate’s degree program. Students learn the same material covered in a certificate program while being taught more work related tasks. Students should expect to walk away from a program with the ability to transcribe speech, type quickly and listen intently. Coursework expands to include more information on court reporting through subjects on document formatting issues, court procedures, and shorthand techniques. A court procedures course focuses on the court reporter’s role inside trials, meetings, and hearings. Both levels of vocational training prepare students to step into the industry.
Completing the preliminary step to education will provide students with the right educational track. Taking the general approach is the most common path. Students should consider all educational options in order to enter the field that’s right for them. Choose an accredited educational program in court reporting that provides the best training options for you. Accreditation is provided by agencies like the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to programs that offer a quality education and meet certain criteria.

Obtain Background Criminal Reports – Steps
Background criminal reports are very important nowadays. However, there are a lot of them which offer this kind of report. In this article, I am going to explain the importance of this type of report. I will also share several approaches on how to obtain a background criminal report about a person.
Criminal background investigation is a process where different criminal records and histories are scanned and are taken into consideration, which are related to the person you are searching. In addition, you would also obtain various information about the individual.
In a criminal background report, you will be able to obtain both basic and advanced information about the person. You will be able to know his name, age, gender, date of birth and other distinguishing physical characteristics about the person, which may include the description on the presence of tattoos and scars.
There are three approaches or methods on how to obtain background criminal reports.
They are arranged according to the estimated or average costs that would incur as you go for such service. These are the following:
1. Visit the nearest police department:
All states have a police department. They have a wide database of information regarding different individuals, such as his criminal cases and records. You would also be able to know what kind of cases had been filed against him, and if there are other known criminal records of that person.
2. Go for background check services:
On the Internet, there are several websites and companies, which are available to accept your orders in doing background check services. However, they can provide you with more powerful, reliable and complete information about a person, which would go beyond his criminal records.
Look below for some recommended background check services.
Some information, which you may obtain when you go for background check services would include, but are not limited to phone number history, criminal records, statement of assets and liabilities, address history and educational attainment. So, it would be good for you if you do invest money in this service!
3. Hire a private investigator or detective:
If you can spend 0 or more to gather information, I highly recommend you to hire a detective or an investigator. They have access of private databases, which no one can easily retrieve. Their reliability has already tested, and would indeed, finish and make a well-done job.
