What is that thing about Mondays?

It’s a Monday and again Monday things have happened.

Firstly, the women from personnel replied to my email reminding her that I was looking for volunteer coaches.

She apologised for sitting on the email for a week and a half as she’d been busy. Training department had advised that I can’t do any ‘official’ coaching as I’m not accredited – of course I can’t get accredited without coaches.


If people want to volunteer, and they understand that I’m not accredited – that’s fine but effectively I’m on my own. That’s what I wanted to do in the first place until THEY decided they could do it better. And its only taken 4 weeks to leave me right where I started from. Bureaucracy at its best.

So I did what I was going to do originally, stick an ad for free life coaching on the ‘sales’ board at work. Within 2 hours I had been contacted by a girl who’s sister was considering life coaching. She wants to change her job and her life. Perfect! It’ll be a challenge but a good challenge. We’re going to meet later this week.

So Employer! Thank you. You’ve just made me even more determined to make a success of this.


  1. go go go! i really hope it'll work out for you. at least in my experience, determination gets things done most of the time :3

  2. My Dad used to say " If you want something done properly just do it yourself".

    Good luck with your new coachee, sounds like a good one to me!

  3. How frustrating! Go for it though. You CAN do this!

  4. Thanks all for your encouraging comments
