Crypto Coaching and Why It’s Important

How a crypto coach can help you be successful 

Cryptocurrency, NFTs, and the metaverse have gained a lot of buzz in recent years especially when bull market activity has hit mainstream news. Whether it’s the lure of controlling your own assets, a new financial paradigm without centralized financial institutions, programmable money or the fear of missing out (FOMO), individual investors as well as businesses can benefit in many ways because crypto is still akin to the early days of the internet. As interest in crypto grows, so does the need for guidance and education to navigate all the complexities and nuances of this new asset class.

Understanding the crypto coach

Merriam-Webster defines a coach as:

“One who instructs or trains”

One who instructs players in the fundamentals of a sport and directs team strategy”

A crypto coach is like a cryptocurrency mentor or advisor who is an experienced individual with in-depth knowledge of the cryptocurrency market, blockchain technology, and the nuances of different digital assets. These coaches are not just educators; they are mentors who can guide you through the complexities of cryptocurrency investing and overall market participation. It’s like having access to a mastermind group, whether you choose group or individual coaching.

The importance of crypto coaching 

The cryptocurrency market is notorious for its volatility and rapid changes. Navigating this landscape without proper guidance can be daunting and risky. Many people have successfully navigated crypto by digging for resources in disparate places, but that takes a lot of time and energy. A crypto coach can significantly contribute to your success for three main reasons: 

  1. There is too much to learn and not enough time.
  2. You’ll miss too many opportunities.
  3. You’ll make mistakes you can’t afford to make.

Personalized guidance 

A crypto coach gets you up to speed in months NOT years, so you are crypto savvy and confident.

A crypto coach does NOT provide investment advice, which can only come from a licensed professional such as a financial advisor or investment advisor. Financial advisors aren’t equipped with the knowledge and skill to navigate cryptocurrency, NFTs and the metaverse, and their firms won’t allow them to give this advice. If you already have a financial advisor, they can give advice on how much to allocate to crypto, but that’s about as far as it goes. Crypto financial advisors are extremely rare.

I’ve been coaching people for over 10 years in the crypto space as a CPA and realized there is a huge need to dump that intel into an education site while expanding the breadth and depth of the coaching. Crypto is like getting on a ship in the 1400s and setting out on the open sea. This requires guidance and makes no sense to do on your own if you are serious either as a business owner and/or an individual investor.

Cryptocurrency and blockchain are about owning and controlling your own assets without having to rely on greedy financial institutions and banks.

Remember 2008?

You can choose to control your own assets which means you are 100% responsible for those assets and 100% responsible to educate and guide yourself. So why go it alone when you can have an OG crypto coach equip you with all the tools. Crypto coaching is about getting 99% of what you need to be successful. You still must choose where to put your money and take responsibility for any losses. That’s the 1% that’s on you.

Market analysis and trends

Keeping up with the ever-changing crypto market is challenging. A crypto coach helps you stay informed about market trends, news, and potential opportunities. Their insights and personal experience can be invaluable on the journey to becoming an expert 32 times faster.

Risk management

Crypto investments come with inherent risks. Understanding how to manage and mitigate these risks is crucial for long-term success. A crypto coach educates you on effective risk management strategies, helping you protect yourself in volatile markets and an ecosystem with fraud and scams. Success in crypto comes from understanding the risk, improving security and increasing your overall fraud and scam intelligence. This is important in traditional finance, but even more so in the crypto space - and it’s typically the missing piece in education.

As Benjamin Graham famously said:

"The essence of investment management is the management of risks, not the management of returns.”

Education and skill development

The crypto space is dynamic, with new technologies and projects emerging almost daily. A crypto coach serves as an educational resource in areas such as:

Continuous learning is key in this fast-paced environment, and a coach can guide you through the process.

As Kirk David Phillips CPA, CMA, CFE, CBP, founder of Crypto Bullseye™ Zone, says:

“Information about crypto is more valuable than crypto itself.”

Building confidence

Confidence is a significant factor for being successful in crypto. The crypto market's unpredictability can be intimidating, especially for newcomers. A crypto coach offers guidance, support and most importantly resources to helping you build the confidence for crypto success. Even the top people in their respective craft, like Jerry Rice and Rafael Nadal, have coaches. Coaching is now a multi-billion-dollar industry. If you want to get good at something there’s a coach for it. Just Google “your interest” plus “coach” and you’ll find people offering up their coaching services.

How to choose the right crypto coach

Selecting the right crypto coach is crucial for a successful coaching experience. Crypto coaches are extremely rare and should include the combination of someone with at least 10,000 hours of experience (Malcolm Gladwell’s expert threshold) and the willingness to offer their expertise.

Consider the following factors when choosing a coach:

Experience and track record

Look for a coach with a proven track record in the crypto space. Experience in successful trading or investing, coupled with a history of coaching others to success, is a positive indicator. 

Availability and communication

Effective communication is vital in a coaching relationship. Ensure that your potential crypto coach is accessible and responsive. Regular check-ins, updates, and open communication contribute to a positive coaching experience. Make sure the coaching package has a specific written offering, so you know exactly what you’re getting and what to expect. For example, the number of coaching calls and the call duration, access to other resources and whether it’s an individual or group session.

Reviews and testimonials

Seek reviews and testimonials from others who have been coached by the individual you're considering. Positive feedback and success stories can provide insights into the coach's effectiveness. Also consider a coach’s total body of work in the crypto space including articles, books, whitepapers and so on. You want to corroborate the coach has the time and experience they claim to have.

Realizing success with crypto coaching

Now that we've explored the role of a crypto coach and the benefits they offer, let's delve into how you can leverage crypto coaching to achieve success in the cryptocurrency space:

  • Set clear goals - Clearly define your financial goals and expectations. Whether you're looking for short-term gains, long-term investments, or a combination of both, communicate your objectives with your crypto coach. This sets the foundation for a personalized coaching plan. As always, seek the advice of financial professionals (even though they generally lack expertise in crypto),  especially if you already have an existing advisor(s). This includes attorneys, CPAs and financial advisors.

  • Participate actively - Success in crypto coaching requires active participation. Engage in discussions, ask questions, and seek clarification on any concepts you find challenging. The more actively you participate, the more you'll gain from the coaching experience. Crypto is a participation sport and you have to do “homework” in-between coaching sessions, or you will not be successful.

  • Implement strategies - A crypto coach may provide you with various strategies and techniques. It's essential to implement these strategies because no one else is going to do it for you, including financial advisors. Learn from the outcomes, and refine your approach based on the feedback and guidance provided by your coach. You can’t get up to speed on coaching sessions alone. You must use the learn, use and repeat mantra.

    You must use the learn, use and repeat mantra.

  • Learn continuously - Cryptocurrency markets are dynamic, and staying informed is a continuous process. Embrace a mindset of continuous learning, and leverage your crypto coach as a valuable resource for staying updated on market trends, news, and emerging opportunities. 

  • Be adaptable and flexible - The crypto market can be unpredictable. Being adaptable and flexible in your approach is essential. Your crypto coach can guide you on adjusting your strategies. Remember: Coaching is aimed at helping already successful intelligent people get to a new level. People will either get the value of mastermind coaching and education, or they won’t.
