Before Twin Engine Coffee began in 2013, another project began. Sitting in my office in Rome, Italy, a few years prior, I had a great job as an agricultural economist. I earned a Ph.D. from an excellent university.
I grew up with coaches that got in your face and yelled. Gideon Culman isn’t that kind of coach. He’s smarter than that – he’s not there to tell you what to do, he’s there to help you find what works for you.
For me, Gideon was absolutely the right coach at the right time. I had imagined for years about changing careers, but found myself without an actual plan or deadline for making it happen, and I felt stuck.
I started working with Gideon because I was unhappy as a corporate lawyer and wanted to build a career as a writer. In the beginning, I thought that Gideon’s role would be simply this: to help me set career and creative goals and to make me stick to them.
I came to Gideon looking for coaching because I was ready to start using my life to accomplish my goals – but I wasn’t sure what they were, or how to figure them out, or how much I was capable of changing.
