Marc Mawhinney and I work in a similar niche – but we come at it from slightly different perspectives, have our own approaches and are also online friends (which is proof that competition online is unnecessary and there really is room for everyone.) Marc also has a daily podcast just for coaches. As someone who obviously has their own podcast I know first hand just how much work goes into them – and the very idea of doing one every day makes my head spin!
He also specializes in working with coaches and helping them build sustainable, thriving practices, a bit like me. He is from a different part of the world. He’s from Canada and we’ve been connected with social media but this is my first time having a proper conversation with Marc Mawhinney and I’m really excited to share his work with you.
