Ruben on Coaching
Coaching is my secret weapon. I never would have made it to the Olympics without a coach. Every Olympian and every pro athlete has a coach. It’s the only way to be your best.
When I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, I followed a guide. Before I ran with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, I got coaching from an expert who had run it for over 20 years. When I was training to swim Alcatraz I trained under an Israeli Navy Seal who had already completed the swim.
I’ve used speaking coaches to help me be more powerful on stage. I used business coaches to build my business. I wrote my books with the help of literary coaches and editors.
I’m an ordinary guy. I’m not a great athlete and I competed in four Winter Olympics. I’m a shy guy, and I’m a professional keynote speaker. I made C's in English, and I’m a bestselling author. I never would have done those things without the help of my coaches.
