Receive a free resource: Hiking Layering System Explained
By Diane Spicer
You've got to consciously plan to succeed, or risk wasting your precious time, energy, resources and money.
But how do you plan without guidance and support?
If you're reading this, you're probably ready to get serious about problem solving, trip planning, or overcoming whatever is holding you back from your hiking dreams and aspirations.
But first, an important question:
Because of its importance, I addressed the answer to this question at length.
The woman behind this website (that's me) is an old trail dog.
In addition, this website has been offering trustworthy hiking tips for ten years.
And I've gotten to the point where it's painful to receive emails from hikers who use the words "someday" and "if only".
"All" it takes is a metamorphosis.
You know, a change in the way you act, think, and believe.
And that requires some work on your part.
After a lot of thought, I've decided to offer an affordable, structured plan to move hikers from Point A to Point B virtually, so they can go ahead and do it for real on a hike.
Let's flesh out your options a bit.
You'll have to self-select into one of these categories:
The first two coaching options are great for when you have a clearly defined problem or inter-related set of questions.
A thirty minute personal Q&A session with me is the way to go when you:
A second option includes a pre-call questionnaire to help us both get crystal clear about what to focus on during the half hour call.
There are also times when you're up against a bigger problem, or wrestling with something fear related that is keeping you off the trail.
First of all, you might need more time and attention to get at the heart of it.
That's exactly what these options provide for you:
This friendly offer to help you over a rough spot on the trail (so to speak) is NOT a money grab on my part.
Metamorphosis is NOT a waste of your time, that's a fact.
Rather, it's carefully designed to provide you with a:
The application is a way for both of us to decide if this is the right move for you at this time.
After reading what you've written:
I consider the chance to work with you a great honor, and will not enter into our coaching or mentoring agreement in haste.
It also helps you clarify exactly what you are trying to achieve.
For instance, wanting to take your first backpacking trip is definitely an achievable goal.
But it's a big goal.
It's a satisfying feeling to know what you know, and what you want and need to know, after going through the application questions.
I take my responsibility as a coach and mentor extremely seriously.
When I set aside time to work with you, I give it my all.
That's why only a handful (one or two) hikers will be welcomed into the Metamorphosis plan at any one time.
If a Metamorphosis hiking coach or mentor plan sounds right for you and you don't have any questions, maybe you'd like to start a conversation to get rolling toward your goals.
This quick little form will make that happen. You'll receive an email from me, and away we go!
I'd love to work with you and celebrate your success,
if we're a good fit for each other and your plans.
