It’s been quite a sprint to commemorate our first decade, and we feel like we’re just getting started. Meet the team, and see what’s coming next.
On July 11, I stepped into the CEO role here at Coach.me as founder Tony Stubblebine was simultaneously named the CEO at Medium (the online publishing platform). For the last few years, Tony had also been our main developer and customer support team. That’s made the transition quite an adventure!
Thankfully, our team and community enjoys the challenge and is passionate about our mission. We know that habit coaching is the most accessible way for ambitious folks to get better consistently and keep moving forward.
In times like these, it’s even more important to provide support in navigating obstacles, protecting our health, creating consistently, and leading our teams. With our flexible chat-based platform, we’re able to connect clients to coaches with exactly the expertise and insights they need.
My first goal for the transition was to listen and understand, and then to build the team and systems that put us on the path to the strongest positive impact.
I’m delighted to introduce you to our core team.

HCC Program Coach
Here are the key projects we’re focused on:
Coaches frequently tell us that having a sense of camaraderie and a place to ‘talk shop’ are two of their top priorities. Through watercooler-casual channels, topic-based forums, and monthly challenges and events, our Discord community provides the daily fuel and connections to sustain a thriving coaching (and writing!) business.
In my earliest conversations, the biggest request was hearing stories from experienced coaches. We hosted an Ask-an Expert series every Thursday in September, and the recordings are chock-full of insightful ideas and recommendations.
- Nathan Sudds unveiled the power of small experiments
- Ramon Williamson dug into philosophy – and a roadmap for making your first $10k
- Cherry Jeffs revealed lots of inside details for making the most of the platform
- Erno Hannink shared his powerful client onboarding techniques
- Tony Stubblebine showed how coaches can utilize Medium to grow
Our Habit Coach Certification (HCC) program continues to be highly rated, and we’re adding another experienced trainer. Having coached over 1,000 clients virtually and being a certified habit-nerd, Malica Ahmad joined just in time for our 11th cohort starting November 28. Based on feedback from previous attendees, we’re trying a split schedule with more support during key inflection points. (Plus, it’s just in time to ride the natural momentum provided by the turn of the New Year!)
For more ambitious coaches, we’re putting the final touches on our new Accelerator Program. With master coach Ramon Williamson, this project will feature an insightful assessment and personalized roadmap, 1:1 mentoring, a supportive cohort, and an (incredibly valuable!) bonus for graduation. We can’t wait to share all the details soon.
Our new Dev Team has climbed the steep learning curve and is ready to build for the future. Our first project is to update the Directory with new categories for Business, Creativity, and Chronic Illness. Next up on the product roadmap will be enhanced (and fun!) stats, a growth-focused coaching membership level, smoother calculations and payment processing, and more coaching tools.
Relaunching Enterprise Coaching
With significant shifts in the way people work, we’ve seen emerging demand for coordinated coaching that helps remote workers and managers implement the key habits for strong performance and health. Already in beta, we’ll soon relaunch our Enterprise Program to match collaborative coaches with large client groups.
Sharing the Power of Habit Coaching
We pioneered digital habit-tracking, unlocked the scalable benefits of habit-coaching, and now it’s time to share our success stories. Our Better Humans publication will continue reaching over 350,000 readers, and we’re adding an easy-to-share daily email to demonstrate how habit-coaching makes such a positive impact. We’ll also be experimenting with product demos, interviews, and events for creating media that sparks engagement.
