"You’re always advertising yourself." – Jack Rolfe
Jack Rolfe (@the_coachinglab) is a hockey coach and the founder of The Coaching Lab: a community which is helping to support coaches coach through games and resources.
After landing himself a coaching role in Perth, Jack has gone on to produce MatchPlay and Reflection cards. These cards have been designed to generate powerful conversations within team games, as well as promote confident, decision-making players, and they’ve been sold in countries all around the world through thecoachinglab.org.
In our wide-ranging conversation, we discuss manufacturing products overseas; potential sampling pitfalls; an honest look at some of the challenges facing a start-up; e-commerce selling tips; and so much more!
