BIG Design Officially launches COACHZONE.BIZ on November 17, 2002 as the new international web community and portal site intended to serve the rapidly growing 'COACHING' market.

<P>COACHZONE.BIZ offers FREE communications resources, FREE Email accounts, FREE discussion forums, FREE graphics, and FREE marketing tools for coaches. It also offers Wholesale Web Sites to Coaches looking for an additional revenue stream for their Coaching Practice. Those seeking coaches can use the site to evaluate and select a coach.

<P>Visitors will find Practical Assistance, Educational Resources, Coaching Referrals, Business Directories, Marketing Advice, Master Coach Articles and Discussion, Coaching and Business Book Reviews, Business and Personal Growth Topics, Seminar Schedules, New Revenue Streams, even Client Referrals! Coaches and potential clients can find out what works and what doesn't, maybe even get to know each other a bit before making a decision to engage in the coaching process. "This should help provide a more successful match" says Lonn Dugan, president of the Toledo OH based marketing and web development firm, BIG Design, which manages the site.

<P>Wholesale web sites and internet services are also offered to coaches, so that they can add a new revenue stream to their service mix.

<P>Free MASTERS of COACHING designation is offered to qualified coaches, with free logo, free discussion forum, even a free web site! Beta testing started September 1, 2002. Soft Launch started October 1, 2002. Now, on November 15, the site is ready to be introduced to the world!

<P>The site proclaims, "Successful Coaching Starts Here!".tm Coaches or those in need of coaching services can ask questions and find answers!

<P>"Don't be surprised if you are one of the first visitors at a site that will soon be quite famous", says Dugan.

<P>The new CoachZone.biz site includes FREE Forums that act as informal, online, 24/7/365 Meeting Places for those interested in the profession. Professional Coaches and potential clients can mix, meet, talk shop, and hopefully, come to a working arrangement called a Coaching Engagement.

<P>Professional 'Coaches' are part of a rapidly growing career field that has exploded in membership in recent years. Coaches are, to individuals with career or life challenges, what a personal trainer is to somebody who needs encouragement and assistance in their physical training program. Coaches are not therapists and don't deal with the past or deep childhood issues, etc. Coaches help clients discover or develop their highest potential and functioning in vocational arenas or personal life missions.

<P>Professional Coaches provide personal coaching and/or business coaching clients with objective 'guidance' by becoming a one on one teacher, or 'seasoned journey mate'. The service is based on objective analysis, observation, clarification assistance, and various skills from the coaches own experience base. Coaches may offer evaluations, feedback, personal encouragement to try harder, or the wisdom to know when and where to ease up. This process helps people grow mentally or professionally, much like personal trainers help people with physical fitness training.

<P>Dugan says that, "CoachZone.Biz is an asynchronous communications network, Marketing Opportunity, and Revenue Stream Generator for the exciting, rapidly growing 'Coaching' market."    

<P>Asynchronous communications are those that are not happening at the same moment. "But that word is a real mouthful", notes Dugan. "What this means," he continues, "is that people can get together to learn and grow, or just talk shop, without having to travel.

<P>Professional "Conversations" take place, even if the participants are not all in one place at one time. At CoachZone.Biz, coaches or companies can have a meeting with others even if they are not all in the same room at the same time ", Dugan adds. Online Messaging, Email, Message Boards, etc., are good examples. This is how more and more business communication is done! Site visitors are invited to "Join In!"
