Joe White, Get Life Coaching featured in Sunday Inquirer and more!

White shares his story of redemption and tips for avoiding holiday stress

Philadelphia (December 2, 2013)- This past weekend, Joe White of Get Life Coaching was featured in two pieces that highlight his personal story and work helping people change their lives for the better.  Joe was the featured subject for a piece by Art Carey that appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer Sunday Health section.  Here is an excerpt from the article:

Today, his business, Get Life Coaching, is thriving, and White, 46, has a staff of five, an office in Wilmington, and a training center in Delaware City. Over the last 14 years, through face-to-face coaching, telephone coaching, and seminars, he estimates that he and his colleagues have helped over 13,000 people.

Some of his confidence-building techniques for clients are unorthodox, such as fire-walking, fire-eating, breaking boards and bricks, bending steel bars with the throat, drum circles, and jumping from a plane at 13,500 feet. His philosophy is also unusual.

“I’m a mechanic for people’s lives, not a therapist or cheerleader,” this exuberant, muscular healer with shaved head and tattoos says. “I’m not a typical life coach in that I don’t sit down and help people draft goals. Setting the goals is not the challenge. It’s helping people figure out why they’re not taking action to achieve their goals. I don’t believe in creating a dependency. I want to coach you to coach yourself.”
