Testimonial from website:
“By 23 Sharon Pearson had established a direct marketing business generating more than $1 million revenue. In 2004, she founded The Coaching Institute (TCI), now one of Australia’s leading coaching training businesses and the most accredited coaching school in Australasia. Enrolling its 1600th student in 2010, TCI helps participants discover their potential through innovative products like the ‘Mastermind’ program which helps businesses accelerate growth through practical marketing tools. Sharon’s first big challenge came at TCI’s inception. At the time there was no government-accredited diploma in coaching. So she wrote the course herself, sat for it, and was awarded Australia’s first Diploma in Life Coaching. In 2008, Sharon set up the Coaching Institute Foundation, a charity dedicated to helping those less advantaged. The foundation has strongly supported the Sacred Heart Mission, numerous animal foundations including WASPA and Animals Asia, and has financed an education program for orphans in Nigeria.”
“I’ve learned that there isn’t always an easy way but there’s always a way.” - Sharon Pearson.
