I compare real estate coaching programs to weight loss programs. Some people need that support and guidance to accomplish things and others don't. I'm not a fan of coaching.

The best coach I ever had was a good friend who is an amazing businessman with no real estate experience - other than having bought and sold houses. But I've never really cozied up to a professional real estate coach. 

You could check out Tim and Julie Harris' site and their real estate version of Think and Grow Rich.

James I did have coaches for years when I first entered the business - probably for about 10 years or so.  Then I moved into finding coaches for specific areas - ie internet marketing back in 08 as I had no clue what to do back then. I've also been a coach for years.

I had one but they knew less than me and were old school and did not work for me. Coaches are good-we all have them, some of them internal, but pick one that helps in a specific area you want help in-leads, internet, web, etc. because a generalist takes too long to make a dent.
