decided to narrow my coaching focus recently and become the Green Coach. I found that I was feeling more rewarded from
helping friends think of ways to save money while helping the environment, than I was from helping people generally improve
their lives. Being the Green Coach allows me to help people not only with the quality of their lives, but with their
finances too. And we're helping the planet at the same time." - Will MacCallum

"Leaving projects unfinished used to be a constant problem for
me. Will's patient and friendly manner put me immediately at ease as he helped me focus on what was truly important, and put
it first. With his guidance and practical advice, I was off and running with a significant writing project. When difficult
patches came along, he steered me through them. Success in that project empowered me for several others. I didn't think I
needed any help, but looking back, I see that the only way I got my projects done was through his positive influence. If you
have anything you want to change or improve in your life, I highly recommend him as a life coach."

me, it only took one hour of a one-on-one discussion with Will to alter a long-ingrained habit. That's the persuasive power
he has. His absolute attention, and doggedness kept me on track. Also, his insightful commentary and relaxed questioning led
me to see a solution. This habit of mine had been hampering me in my work, so thank you, Will, for freeing me and moving me
forward. Oddly, I now feel it was all my own doing, so am feeling good about myself, as well."
