Description

 This course is for the goal-setters out there. As a coach, and an entrepreneur, goal-setting is a regular part of my life and work. Over the last five years I've developed a new framework for goal setting, one I call the D.A.M.N. Goal framework (as in "What's your damn goal?). In this course you will learn how to use the D.A.M.N.™ Goals framework to create powerful goals that help focus your action, and capitalize on human psychology, increasing your odds of success by 200-300%. Discover the required components of a strong goal, the science behind those components, and a handful of valuable resources for further learning. The course is designed to be useful for people at various stages of the goal-setting process. Whether you're brand new to goal-setting, or you've already got goals, and you're trying to make them more meaningful, the individual components of this framework will help you with that.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for people who may have struggled to set meaningful goals in the past, or they feel they set goals that didn't do them any damn good and they want to get better.

Website Coach, Traveler, & Passionate Cook

Hi, I'm Ethan Brooks. Thanks for checking out my course.

Currently, I'm a website coach. I work with professionals, like attorneys and CPA's, to teach them how their websites can be better utilized to help achieve their highest business goals. I've been working with online businesses of all sorts -- from small-town farms to Silicon Valley start-ups -- for the last five years, and am ranked among the top 3% of freelancers worldwide, through the talent agency TopTal.

There are few things I enjoy more than the transformation that takes place when you help someone make sense of, and accomplish their goals. It's what gets me out of bed in the morning.

In addition to my love for entrepreneurship and coaching, I'm crazy about extended travel, and have, at various points, lived out of a truck in the jungles of Hawaii, out of a Volkswagen Jetta TDI criss-crossing the USA, and out of a backpack for six months tramping around the UK and France learning to cook.

I love interacting with students and can be reached through the website listed below.

I hope you enjoy my course :)
