FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions


by Brent Haydey



Our services and support of people just like you are quite unique compared to others. To help you clearly understand how we can best support you, here is a list of some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive… our FAQ.

What makes you different from other Life Coaches?

First of all our specific focus is related to work-life balance and helping people achieve the freedom they need to achieve it while continuing to thrive at work and earn a substantial income. We work with business owners and career minded professionals who are stuck feeling stressed, overwhelmed, overworked, and burned out. We help them set clear direction and understand purpose, reclaim time, build energy, and gain freedom so they can fully live their version of The One Wave Lifestyle while also continuing to grow a thriving business or career.

It is a unique focus that is positioned between typical life coaches and typical business coaches.

In our coaching we use a unique blend of coaching, mentoring, and teaching depending on what our clients need most at the time. Coaching is focused on helping a person unveil what is already within them with effective questioning and dialogue. For Brent, his mentoring draws upon his extensive personal experiences with overcoming burnout, stress, imbalance, and loss. His consulting draws on his formal backgrounds and experience in health and wellness and business mastery.

How is what you do different from Business Coaches?

Typical business coaches are focused on helping a business grow, be financially successful, operate more efficiently, etc. One of the types of individuals we work with is business owners. We focus on the owner more specifically than on the business. Our goal is to support them to be more effective in working in and on their business while also experiencing the work-life balance and freedom they want to live The One Wave Lifestyle.

Do I have to live in the same city as you for your support?

No. All of our support is designed to be delivered virtually from or to anywhere in the world. If we do happen to live close by, or travel brings us close, then we can plan to have occasional in person meetings.

Perhaps our most FAQ – How often do we meet?

That depends on your exact needs. For private coaching we usually meet once a week or once every second week. In addition to that there are a number of options for additional connection and support, namely through our One Wave Global membership community. If time stress is a challenge for you right now, and it is for most people looking at our support, then One Wave Global might be your best starting point.

Will I need to commit to a long term contract?

No. If private coaching is what you want then you will be able to choose between a 3 or 6 month initial package. Following that, if you would like to continue in the coaching relationship, it will be on a month to month basis as long as you are receiving the value you are looking for.

If our membership community if what you want then it is available on a month by month membership that you are free to stop at any time.

Is this therapy or counselling?

No, coaching is not therapy or counselling and should not be used as a substitute for it. Coaching is a sequential process of providing strategic advice that pertains to clarifying your intentions, designing goals/action plans and taking action within a supportive relationship. This FAQ is important to understand for those who may be in need of a specific form of therapy.

What if I’m not yet ready for private coaching?

Private coaching can feel like too much at the start, especially if you’ve never been in a coaching relationship. If that is the case then membership in our One Wave Global Community is the perfect starting place where you can begin on your journey of change along your path of work-life balance and living your ideal life. That might be enough for you and all you’ll ever need. But if you eventually feel you need private coaching you can take that step at a later date.
