I am a proponent of Peer-to-Peer coaching.
Find someone who can help lead your way. Ideally, this will be someone with more experience than you in the area into which you are expanding. Start by drafting a mind-map of all the people who have been influential in your life – before high school and beyond. After 5 or 10 minutes, you should have a significant inventory of people to contact.
The foundation to this kind of coaching exchange is the following:
You know some things, and they know some things. They may not know what you know, and you may not know what they know...so, you get together. Make it fair, keep it balanced - exchange ideas, dreams, goals and information. Together you may get further along.
I am doing this kind of coaching with 3 people. We share phone calls every 6-10 days. One call, we talk about them, the next we talk about me. We ask each other clarifying questions, and we "remind" each other of the deals we made, or the agreements we took on. It's great! Give it a try...
