Edwin Y.

Life Coaching

Great mentor and coach. He’s not afraid to tell you straight on what’s wrong and what probably needs to get done. We focus on finding specific ways to tackle issues as well as ways to assess progress. I feel more focused and centered and has been able to become more productive.

Jim is very insightful and has the ability to see someone's strengths and also the things that may be holding them back and in doing so clears a more focused path for them to pursue. I also enjoy his personality and working with him.

Thanks, Jamie -- the enjoyment is mutual!

Life Coaching

Jim is a wonderful coach! I highly recommend him as he takes the time to listen to you and he really cares about your outcome- it shows that he is passionate about his work! He and I have had about 5 sessions so far and he is helping me see more clearly what I want from my life and work. It's a process, and I sometimes feel all over the place- but Jim can really get to the core and ask you, "When you get this (and you will!) do you really want it, and why?" So success is a reality, and I feel I'm taking charge of my life, career and happiness! I'm thankful to have found such a great life coach in Jim, he's professional yet down to earth and I look forward to our next session!

Life Coaching

I was struggling with some basic life stuff, and decided I needed help. Jim's and my paths had crossed a few years earlier and I remembered that he did life coaching. So I gave him a try. This was almost a year ago. There's no magic pill or words, people. He's down to earth, patient, kind. And skilled. The proof is in the pudding. I'm trying to do my part, he's doing his part.. I can't explain exactly HOW his coaching is working for me. But when I recall the issues I initially brought to the table, and I take a look at where I am almost a year later and how I feel, and what I learned about myself and how to navigate as the individual I am... I would heartily recommend Jim to anyone who thinks they could use some help. To be happier. thumbtack asks reviewers to 'be specific' and I hope I have been. MORE specifics I fear could be counter-productive. I can only suspect that Jim's sensitivity and skill level means he is addressing and approaching clients with a big bag of tricks, some of which are helping me. I'll bet there are skills and tools he uses that I've never seen that could help someone else, and if I were too specific, that person might read this and say "oh, he's okay for her but not for me" and that also may be true. No one coach could be great for everyone. But I sense he has many skills in addition to those he uses to to help me, and the proof is in the pudding. And the pudding is much better this year than it was last year. Phone sessions work fine for me every 2 - 5 weeks. It's very good.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer solutions that work for each client. It might be a flat hourly fee for a few sessions, flexible pricing for a longer-term engagement, or a customized deal for e.g. text check-ins or whatever else the client might require.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I have a consultation with new clients to establish that we're on the same page about what we're trying to accomplish, and that we'd be comfortable working together. Then I work with them to understand their circumstances and motivations, and together we start clarifying goals and making specific plans.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've got a bachelor's degree from Colgate University and certification from Martha Beck Life Coach Training. I also have decades of experience helping people do things better in various walks of life. For more, see the About page on my website.
