Personal Note from Life Coach Mary:

In the fall of 1998, I attended my first International Coach Federation Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.  One of the most valuable breakout sessions I attended was with Laura Berman Fortgang and Cheryl Richardson about “How to Build a Coaching Practice.”  It was filled with practical “how-to” strategies which filled me with hope and possibility.  Later in the conference I purchased a copy of Laura Berman Fortgang’s first book, Take Yourself to the Top.  I ran into her in the hallway and she signed it.  The message said something like, “Welcome to Coaching.  We need you.”  This affirmation gave me the juice to go create a thriving coaching practice.

I’ve since followed Laura as she went on Oprah (the FIRST personal coach to appear!!), spoke on other subjects, published two more books and developed her own coaching school.  She is truly a pioneer and leader within the field of coaching.  I’m honored to include her in the Conversations with the Masters series.
