Q – Can husbands and wives go through the “Ultimate Playbook” together with Coach Charlie?
We have found that husbands and wives working the playbook together can be a very beneficial thing, especially in the first three chapters when they can compare personality traits and specific design. It helps them communicate better, relate to one another better, appreciate each other’s strengths and weakness, and work/co-exist with each other more efficiently. The concept of working together can be a real “marriage builder”. It’s even fine to do the coaching calls together for the first few chapters.
After the first few chapters, however, it is recommended that the coaching calls be separate because lots of information from each individual will be shared, collected and discussed. There simply isn’t enough time in a 60-90 minute phone call to do it justice. Plus, the paths of each spouse may become more individualized, requiring specialized attention to each spouse concerning their own findings.
We have special pricing for couples who wish to take the “Ultimate Playbook” Identity and Destiny game plan together.
Q – How do we pay for the services?
The fees for services are normally paid by credit card or through pay pal. Deposits are required upon setting up a game plan. Deposits vary, depending on the game plan. In rare cases where no credit card or pay pal is available, checks can be accepted ahead of time.

Q – How is Life Coaching done? Does it have to be in person?
Life coaching can be done three ways:
1. By phone
2. By Skype or some type of video conference
3. Face to face, in person
By far, the most popular way to do life coaching is by phone.
It works well not only for long distance coaching but for people who may not have the video tools necessary for video conferencing. While I am open to any form of meeting, my personal preference is by phone. We work together to decide a day of the week and time during the day – (morning, afternoon, or evening) – best suitable for the client to meet for coaching. We do our best to stay true to those times. We know that sometimes life happens (vacations, Drs. Appointments, travel, big events, etc.). In those cases we flex when needed to accommodate both parties, but we do our best overall to stay on track with our game plan. The length of the phone calls and duration of the coaching all depends on the need and game plan the client decides to take.
Q – Why “Faith-Based” Life Coaching?
I personally chose to do faith-based life coaching because I have a fundamental belief that all men are created by God with a specific design and purpose in mind. We are all here for a reason. The assumption is that the client either has or at least can acknowledge that belief.
I believe I am called to pour in to the lives of people God leads my way so they can go and make a difference in their world. It’s really a form of discipleship, only the stakes are so much higher. We’re talking about helping people find the most important thing from their Creator – their God-given purpose! I honestly believe that next to a person’s eternal security, the second most important thing for them to understand and be sure of is how God designed them and for what earthly purpose.
Q – Is Life Coaching just another term for counseling or therapy?
This is a common question people have about life coaching. It was my very question when I first heard the term “life coach”. The answer is no. It’s an entirely different thing. Here’s the difference.
Counseling/therapy is more about digging in to a client’s past in order to discover the source of their problems and pain in order to help them process, resolve and heal. People also get counseling in order to deal with life threatening habits or tendencies such as drug addiction, suicidal tendencies, alcoholism, etc. This type of counseling requires skilled professionals that have training in these specific areas of need.
Life coaching, on the other hand, deals with the present. Coaches help a person get from where they are at now to where they want to be. Coaches help you discover your potential and partner with you to help you reach your goals. It’s more like encouraging/exhorting people to take practical steps toward a goal with proper perspective and a winning attitude.
