Item description for The Portable Coach: A Do-It-Yourself Approach to Personal Coaching by Lorraine C. Enos...
Each year thousands of Americans pay personal coaches up to $200.00 an hour for advice on how to make career and personal changes in their lives. Coaches guided their clients through transformation steps including individual assessment and goal setting. Millions more could benefit from the services of a personal coach but cannot afford their hefty fees.
The Portable Coach: A Do-It-Yourself Approach to Personal Coaching fills this void and contains realistic advice on how readers can bring lasting changes to their lives. Instead of providing easy answers, The Portable Coach encourages readers to ask tough questions and look within themselves for answers. This book is a must read for anyone who desires to transform their life.

Exercises for the physically challenged Jul 1, 2002
When I was first challenged to read "The Portable Coach," I cringed. I don't do physical exercise; therefore, I don't need a coach. However, as I read the book I realized that we need to exercise every part of our lives, not just our physical beings. Lori Enos provides a expert guide on how to get your entire life geared up for success. When life throws you a curve, the exercises in "The Portable Coach" will help you deal with life and come out a winner.
Live your life the way you want May 26, 2002
When I first heard the title, the Portable Coach, I had visions of a very small glass coach, à la Cinderella, small enough to fit in your pocket. This is your own personal life coach, helping you to visualise what you want and how to get it.
It's a self-help book with a difference, all the exercises in the book have actually been done by the author and they have worked for her. In each section there is an introduction before each exercise and then there is a workbook format so that you can fill in the answers there and then. No more hunting around for a piece of paper in order to get the full value of the book. Everything is inlcuded to get you started working on your goals. There are also some real life examples from the author, which really put things in perspective.
It's written in a friendly, down to earth manner, almsot as if you had a friend in the room with you to help you figure out where you are in life, where you want to go and how to achieve this. I like that this book is geared towards the fact that you have to help yourself, no-one else is going to do it for you. You want that great new job? Write the resume and apply. Go looking for opportunity, don't wait for it to come to you.
A great book if you need some help in getting started on changing things in order to have the life you really want.

One of the Better Do-It-Yourself Programs May 25, 2002
"Non-fiction, THE PORTABLE COACH has one of the better do-it-yourself programs for those wanting to achieve the best possible lives for themselves. It doesn't preach, gives no written-in-stone answers for those who feel like they are running in place, but it does give the serious reader the tools to transform themselves in the way best suited to their skills, ambitions, and dreams. Not only has the author provided assessment tools, she has also provided a handy workbook so there is no need to keep a separate journal as each exercise is completed.
If you are at a crisis point and need some direction, THE PORTABLE COACH just might be the road map you need. It is easy to read, full of examples, and well organized." Highly Recommended! ~Under the Covers Book Reviews
