Joining us in our “How I Became a Coach” series is Dale Young, PCC, who comes from a diverse background in I.T. work, corporate management, and co-founding a tech company. However, despite his success, Dale still felt like he had a “job” instead of a career he loved. This awareness was the first step in Dale’s journey towards becoming a professional coach.

Though the transition into coaching wasn’t always smooth, Dale persevered through health problems, financial difficulties, and an unwanted divorce. Today, Dale is thrilled to have found the career he loves.

Tune in to this candid conversation as Dale shares his experiences and insights, offering you encouragement, wisdom, and godly inspiration.
