Coaching Mistakes We’ve Made that We Regret, Laugh At, and Learned From

Ep 201 - WordPress

Paul and Micheala have collectively coached thousands of people over the past 16 years, helping them to successfully lose weight and keep it off for good.

But like you, they’re human beings, which means more often than they care to admit, their propensity to make a mistake is just as strong as their propensity to meal prep! 

In today’s episode, Micheala and Paul pull back the curtain to share several of the coaching mistakes they’ve made over the years.

Some can be chalked up to youth and ignorance.

Some are rooted in their egos running the show.

Some are due to simply being stubborn.

And, most, are simply laughable with what they know now as their education continued over the years

Listen in for some laughs, relatability, and a dose of the human experience and Paul and Micheala share some of the biggest mistakes they made in their coaching careers.
