Aspiring Pro

When you are new or climbing the ranks in poker, trading, golf, etc., your primary focus is on ramping up your technical skills. I can help you improve more quickly by removing the emotional issues impairing your learning and work ethic.

Plus, in the early stage when you’re building expertise, it can be hard to tell if problems are driven by a lack of technical skills or by flaws in your mental game. You don’t know what you don’t know. I can help you tease out the difference between emotional issues stemming from where you are in your development vs. those caused by deeper flaws, biases and illusions.

Having worked with many beginners, many of whom were experts in another field, I understand the challenges of getting your mind in the right place while simultaneously building your technical expertise and not becoming overwhelmed or overconfident.

Established Pro

Thanks to your drive, experience, and skill, you have become a well-established trader, poker player, golfer, etc. You have an edge and you’re profitable. But there’s too much inconsistency in your performance, focus, decision-making, and discipline. You’re acutely aware of how much your emotions are costing you, but you’re stuck and can’t figure out what to do.

When you’re immersed in the problem, it’s hard to see the full picture. That’s where I come in. I’m highly skilled at identifying what’s holding you back and guiding you through a system for resolving your problems.

The bulk of my coaching has been helping clients at this level to get unstuck. Some have gone on to be among the best in the world and many others have enjoyed stellar careers. Nearly all who have put in the work have made significant strides in their mental game.

Elite Level Pro

Having progressed to this level, it’s unlikely that big, emotional problems are affecting you. But you’re still driven to constantly improve, realize your full potential and solve the unique challenges that you face now.

The experts I work with, which include elite traders, poker players, sports bettors, executives and PGA Tour players, rely on my ability to dissect layered issues and help them reach their peak more often. We will have entire sessions where we pour through all the nuances of one mistake or situation. Typically a situation like this has both a mental and technical component to it. We focus on problem-solving to make sense of it, prevent future mistakes like it, and ensure growth continues.

Having worked with some of the best of the best in a wide variety of fields, I know what’s required to ensure you stay on top of your game.

Preparing for Your First Session

The first step is completing a detailed coaching questionnaire. The questionnaire is detailed for a reason. It forces you to reflect and think about your mental game in ways you may not have before. Sometimes topics that you don’t think are relevant still hold clues that help me zero in on who you are, your struggles, strengths, knowledge base, and where you are at this point.

Designed to take a broad assessment of your entire mental game, the questionnaire gives me some ideas about what’s stopping you from achieving your goals and ensures that we can hit the ground running right from the beginning of the first session. Even better, many clients see benefits just from completing it!

Your Goals Drive the Action

The sessions themselves are a collaborative effort. They’re interactive, educational, sometimes challenging and often fun. My job is to help you figure out and correct the flaws that are impairing your execution. To that end, we work together to dig into your problems and identify the cause of them.

This is where I really shine. I am extremely skilled at helping clients get to the root of what’s driving errors and emotional swings. Then, we devise a solution that is highly tailored to you and to how you operate, and in subsequent sessions we monitor progress and adjust as needed. At the end of every session you’ll have a clear understanding of the steps you need to take next in order to begin/keep improving.

Time to Make it Happen

The work you do between sessions is where the bulk of your improvement happens. You’ll leave each session with new insights and clear next steps to take. These give you the potential to improve, but you’ve got to do the work to make that happen.

All the work you do is not only key to actually making progress, it’s also crucial for refining the strategy in our next session. This is especially important if you don’t make significant improvement right away or if you have unexpected trouble. Even when it feels like you haven’t made progress, so long as you’ve tried, the difficulty you’ve encountered is informative and helps us determine the next step.

Don’t Quit While You’re Ahead

Once we’ve mapped the full scope of a problem or opportunity and devised a strategy that’s proven to work, you will need to continue to apply that strategy until it becomes second nature. During this part of the process, how often you consult with me is up to you, although I generally recommend that we meet at least once every 3 months.

Clients often think they should cancel sessions when they are doing really well but these instances are important to solidifying the gains that have been made. A session to unpack your progress and success is often very useful for reinforcing the knowledge, skills and tactics that got you here, so that it continues. There’s nothing worse than slipping backwards because of complacency that could have easily been avoided.

FAQs

How is your coaching different from your books?

The books cover the most common issues I see in coaching and outline a practical, repeatable system readers can follow to address those common issues. They have been a great way for me to help a large audience at one time. Coaching, on the other hand, is personalized.

As a client, you get custom analysis and a strategy tailored to how problems show up for you. Plus, when dealing with mental game problems, it can be hard to know exactly what to work on and how. For some, the process is overwhelming. For others, having a partner in the trenches helps them make progress more quickly. Either way, I help you focus on what matters most to you.

What are the sessions like?

Interactive. Collaborative. Challenging. Educational. And sometimes fun! Coaching sessions are actually a mix of many things that will help you better understand why you’re struggling. The first goal is uncovering what is really driving executional errors and emotional swings. Once we get to the root cause, we devise a strategy to resolve it then monitor progress and adjust as needed.

How customized is the coaching advice given the number of years you have been doing this?

Every client gets coaching customized to their needs. Nothing is copy and pasted. While the core system that I work from is standard for everyone, how I talk about it and deliver advice or perspective is tailored to you, your situation, your goals, and your interests.

The truth is, whenever I’m tempted to think I’ve seen it all, something new comes along. I see unique problems, as well as common problems that present themselves in unique ways, all the time. In addition, the depth of issues varies from client to client. All of that is actually what makes coaching so much fun for me. I love the challenge of analyzing all facets of a problem and finding solutions.

How are sessions conducted?
The vast majority of my sessions are done virtually via phone, Zoom, Skype, or Discord. Either audio or video – this is your choice. I also see some clients in person when traveling on site, or when I travel for speaking engagements in your city.
Are the sessions recorded?
This is your decision. The sessions are very active and many clients find it useful to be able to go back and re-listen to them. Some clients also like to record so they can fully focus on the session in real-time and take notes afterwards. I recommend that you record, however it is only for your personal use and not to be distributed. To record, we will need to use either Zoom or Skype, so you can click a button and easily have it download on your computer at the end of the session.
What payment methods do you accept?

I accept credit cards, PayPal and crypto (BTC, ETH, LTC).
