“I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Eddie over the last several months. I am personally dealing with some serious relationship issues with my wife and quite frankly I am not sure how things even got to this point. Coaching from Eddie allowed me to look deep within myself and be able to finally acknowledge feelings of insecurity, anger, and fear. Through persistent coaching, I also began to understand were these feelings have originated from earlier in my life. And more importantly, to be ok with it. I was able to identify each of the negative beliefs within myself and learn how to not let those beliefs continue to cloud my awareness and control my feelings. Ultimately, they were preventing me from having sound judgement and being able to make the best decisions for my life. This coaching experience has made me stronger as a man. I can be masculine and vulnerable. Eddie has a unique way of probing to get to the right questions and then using that information to create self-awareness as well as a vision of the path forward, whatever that may be. He is very gifted in how he can connect with people. I am not sure how things will turn out, however, I know that through this process I have become a stronger person as well as have become more in touch with my inner self. Coaching is empowering and will continue to benefit me both professionally and personally going forward.”
“Ed has the unique gift of being present with whoever he is speaking. I felt this from the first moment I sat down with him, and this helped me feel very comfortable with our discussion regarding creating new personal goals for myself. I felt my life had stagnated personally, and through his being present with me and asking some thought-provoking questions, Ed inspired me to think with a fresh new direction. I had been holding on to a stagnant and toxic relationship which was unconsciously adding stress and anxiety to my life. Ed’s attentiveness and relevant questions helped inspire me to think about what was really important in my life: hanging on to old beliefs and toxicity; or letting go, no matter how difficult I thought it would be or how uneasy I would feel. I left our first meeting feeling excited about how I would execute these new goals I had set for myself. I am pleased to say that Ed’s coaching has given me a new outlook on my life; I have made the decision to respectfully end the toxic relationship that was no longer serving me, and have woken up each day with a positive attitude that the relationship I really want is waiting for me! I no longer feel the stress and anxiety as I had before. I have started using the techniques Ed shared with me on a daily basis to create more positive experiences into my life. I’m happy to say my friends and family have noticed a positive change in my outlook and it’s been contagious.”

“I started coaching with Ed after meeting him at a Business Mastery conference at the same time when I was launching my new company with my brother. Not only were we creating a new company but we were moving into a new geographic market 500 miles from home and building a company was something we were confident in but lacked knowledge and motivation for sales. I did not feel comfortable with selling to people. I started knocking on doors and got too many no’s to count and felt discouraged. I contacted Ed about coaching me on the business and I could not believe how fast things started to get going. I thought we would take it slow but slow was not in Ed’s vocabulary and although I was nervous I felt I had someone guiding me along the way. In just a few short months I have increased my sales by 100% every month. Not only did Ed help me with my fear but gave me resources I could use to develop a strong mind and build confidence. His coaching worked not only for my business but in my relationship with my girlfriend as well. After having some communication issues with the love of my life, Ed quickly helped us get to the root of the problem and develop a new empowering way for us to communicate. I value coaching and now dream bigger each day.”

To Those Who Are Considering a Coach:
When I found that my old friend Eddie West was coaching I was in one of the darkest places I had been in years. My thinking had been so polluted with suicidal thoughts and feelings of worthlessness and self doubt my relationships and work life were in real trouble. It was a viscous cycle that I knew I needed help with. I could not fight this fight alone. I have seen counselors in the past but I felt going over my childhood one more time would be a waste of time. I wanted solutions, strategies and tools today.
I knew right away that working with Eddie would be just what I needed. His energy and passion were infectious. I started taking copious notes during the coaching and really working on the action plans and assignments. I went ALL IN. I have not missed a day of a powerful exercise he taught me, which has so changed the way I see myself, that my resourcefulness tank has gone from totally empty to over-the-top full.
I am now attacking another business with such joy and energy I feel like I will burst with happiness. Just a few weeks ago I would have had no faith in myself for it.
Listen, it's not Eddie. It is me that did it. It will be you that does it. But I could not have broken free without the guidance, without the questions and plans, and the prompting to take action that Eddie provided. He is fabulously trained and very good at what he does. He is a mans man and I am so grateful to God we connected when we did.
