Become an AWSA Certified Coach

Yes!  AWSA Coaching Certification is here and you can be one of the first 10 people to take our training this January, live or on recorded replay.

Please note this a real certified coaching program. Not only will you become an expert in the art of coaching, you will   become an authorship, speaking and communications expert as well. There will be live online training, extra reading and a bit of homework. So, understand that this will take some effort on your part.  But the effort will with worth it!  Read the following benefits to see what this program could mean to you:

Here are the benefits you get as an AWSA Certified Coach

  • Double, triple your writing and speaking income.
  • Take your income and influence to a radically new level AND get paid for coaching people.
  • Remove the roadblocks that have held you back as a writer and speaker.
  • Identify and clarify your writing and speaking goals and … help others do the same.
  • Get paid for developing leadership writing and speaking skills in your clients.
  • Recognize the horrible scams and pitfalls in the publishing industry with guaranteed ways to avoid them.
  • Identify your God-given dreams and develop a clear action plan to achieve them.
  • Develop camaraderie, community and lifelong friendships as well as peer-to-peer support  in your ministry journey.

Our Coaching Certification program has been developed by certified life coaches under the guidance of Professor and Life Coach Cynthia Cavanaugh, and special guest experts and will include a copy of Your Plan to Achieve your Professional Speaking and Writing Dreams, a workbook you will use with your future AWSA-generated coaching clients.

Imagine sitting at home in your spare time coaching new writers and speakers and getting paid for it?

What if you could earn an extra thousand dollars a week by simply coaching some of our newer, novice AWSA members or even our AWSA Proteges?

You can do it and we’ll show you how.

We’re only taking ten spots, our first ten coaches are going to be getting matched with clients that AWSA helps to generate.

The Next Step?

As you know, some certification programs run upwards of $10,000 or more.  And considering that you can enhance and even earn income through coaching, that price tag does not make for a bad investment.

With our program, you’re not only getting all of the benefits of one of those $10,000 courses, you’re getting access to AWSA generated coaching clients – at a fraction of the investment.

What would it be worth to you to even make 10% more sales with your book, take two extra speaking engagements a year or add an extra 500 readers to your blog, as well as additional coaching income?

Even if we charged you $5000, would this kind of training be worth it to you?

Well yes, especially considering that it will not only expand your ministry, it will expand your bottom line.

Plus you will be the first in line to help AWSA coach a coming flood of proteges who will be coming into our all new, soon-to-be-announced Reach Your Audience Academy.

We will arrange that those of you who graduate from our first program will have the opportunity to make up to $75 an hour working with AWSA coaching clients.

But what about the cost of our training?  Don’t worry, the AWSA Certification program is not going to cost you $5000. Right now you can join our second class of

Listen, we’d love to accept all of you, we love all of our members but we have limited this to just ten.

If you don’t get in, don’t be discouraged. You wouldn’t even be a part of AWSA if we didn’t think you’re awesome and totally believe in you.

Just know that you won’t get this introductory offer in the future and this won’t be your last opportunity to get in.  We will likely open up classes again in August of 2018.

So, are you ready to becoming one of our  first  AWSA Certified Coaches? Our online classes start this fall with recorded replay available.

So don’t delay.

First fill out our application, then go down to payment options and chose a payment method.  If you don’t get into our first class, we will refund you.

SCROLL DOWN TO SIGN UP.

About Joy Schneider:

Joy2Joy is one of our AWSA resident experts on spiritual warfare.   Not only is Joy our AWSA prayer captain, she has been at the forefront of our popular conference Friday morning time of warfare prayer.

Here’s what Joy has to say about warfare of women in ministry, “We often become aware that we are experiencing spiritual warfare but are ill-prepared to know what to do about it. We do not realize that many of the stresses we encounter are actually the pressures that come with the wrestling that the Apostle Paul describes in Ephesians 6:12., ‘For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.'”

Joy explains, “We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. Therefore, He has given us what we need to overcome.”

More about the Warfare Class:  

The four classes will cover subjects that include:

1. Overcoming fear and gaining confidence in your spiritual identity in Jesus Christ. This class will

explain the segment of spiritual wickedness in high places and what is our weaponry of choice.

2. The enemy operates by darkness. This segment will explain tactics used by the rulers of the

darkness of this world. What the Lord has given us to stand strong and confident is really quite

simple. You’ll see.

3. Are you tired of being bullied by the enemy? You are equipped for this battle against the

authority or powers segment. You will see what you get to use to push back with confidence.

4. Get your lawyer hat out and see what you have to stand in your legal rights in the spirit realm.

This segment will discuss principalities. You will be amazed at what neutralizes the enemy.

Identifying

 

BONUS:  You will receive (by mail) a copy of Joy’s book:

Identifying the Hierarchy of Satan: A Handbook for Wrestling to Win!

 

COST of CLASS:  $30.00  (Includes copy of book.)

Note:  For AWSA Members Only.  Limited seating.  Please sign up before the classes closes.  When ordering the class, please include your MAILING (snail mail) address so we can drop a copy of the book in the mail to you.
