Jay Reiss - "Professional Life Coach"

My journey started in 1976, while I was working in a private hospital in Eastern Pennsylvania. I was really surprised at how quickly patients recovered when their diets were improved and food supplements added. And then, a friend gave me a book about natural foods and holistic healing - and my vision began to grow about coaching clients toward better health...

I traveled across the country to follow my dream and settled in Los Angeles in 1978. It was there that I entered a graduate school program which, after three years of hard work, I completed in 1981.

It was my wish to broadcast my message with the widest net possible. But little did I know just how wide (and deep) that net would be!

I started as a nutritional consultant and teacher and began publishing articles in newspapers and magazines. Within a few months I was syndicating my own newspaper column - I called it "Nutrition in Mind" - and I supplemented my publishing work by lecturing throughout Southern California. I made guest appearances on television and radio shows - and gave workshops at six colleges in the greater Los Angeles area. I also worked as the Public Education Chairman for the American Cancer Society, and was a member of the Speaker's Bureau for the American Heart Association. Between the workshops, my media appearances, and my published work, my name was frequently in the papers - and my articles appeared on magazine covers throughout North America.

By the following year, clients and friends were asking me how to do some networking - just like I had been doing mine! The momentum I established in the early 1980's gave me a strong base to work from, and helped me expand my business. And so I began my practice as a Coach.

I started coaching at a time when very few people understood what coaching meant outside the realm of sports. I took to coaching like a duck to water, and within a very short time, I established myself as one of the first professional coaches on the planet.

Following the same principles and strategies that effectively launched my health services and publishing career, I advertised my coaching practice in magazines with a worldwide circulation. In the mid-to-late 80's I created an international reputation through my full-page magazine advertisements and innovative direct mail campaigns. By 1990, I was reaching over two million readers a month. I was frequently invited to speak in front of large audiences, I was the keynote speaker at international conventions, and I produced dozens of seminars and workshops.

It was during this period that - working with a small group of volunteers - I started the world's first online support group for people who became obsessed with Internet relationships. We worked with hundreds of people all across America and we learned a lot about online relationships ourselves.

As the Internet expanded, new online relationship opportunities sprang up everywhere. Using my professional training and a lot of common sense, I worked with clients as I applied my background in Psychology and Social Work. At first it was my friends who came for help... and then their friends asked for support too. Before I knew it I was working with people all across the country. I created my first website and wrote my first book in 1990. Not long after that, my practice expanded, and I found myself working with clients around the globe.

The 90's flew by in a flurry of business and a continual flow of projects. I was typically coaching 20 to 30 clients at a time and it was also during this period that I wrote and published five self-help books, which have been sold all over the world.

And so, from all of this, my current coaching practice has emerged.
