Does the site look professional?  How would you rate it on ease of use
from one to ten with ten being the highest?  What questions would you
ask? Have you used their services?  If so, what did you think?
There is no answer at this time.

Yes, I have checked out the site, also in allwhois.

"Domain Name..........
  Creation Date........ 2006-04-16
  Registration Date.... 2006-04-16
  Expiry Date.......... 2007-04-16
  Organisation Name.... Makesha coleman
  Organisation Address. P.O. Box 8284

Besides this question's appearing to be spam, the fact that the website has 
just been established and that it will expire in one year suggests another 
four-letter word.

I've checked out the site and I am NOT IMPRESSED with either the site
or the 'coaching' that it offers.

No! I would certainly not hire them.

Phew - that was interesting

|Lourde N. Savia has years of experience helping people just like you
in various areas of life.|

Ah !  Lord And Saviour

Well I don't like the type face, and that 'purple' stuff is a bit peculiar.

Mind you, I've always reckoned that one should choose a type face that
is easy to read - and empirically found myself in the minority.

The deal sounds like $50 bucks a week for a chat line with with one of
their staff :
  'Our company is staffed by former therapists and psychologists.'

How does one get to be a /former/ therapist and/or a former psychologist ?

|Your goal package includes three scheduled thirty minute sessions per
week.  Your sessions are used to discuss anything you want to discuss.
 Also, if needed you can use your emergency session at any time within
the month.|

Hmm ... $50 / 6 hrs = $8.33 per hour   
- deduct overheads and we might be getting below the minimum wage.

Either there is an angle here (like selling on to Scientologists), or
the financial plan is flawed.

Curious - but there is a germ of an idea in this ...

Well, that's $50 for 1.5 hours, so that's about $33 per hour, but
still not enough to pay a decent therapist.  So if one is not getting
value for one's money, is one getting anything?  Or will one get
anything at all?!  I doubt it.

The price is $50/week plus the "emergency session" and daily emails.

Ok so my analysis (for free even). 

The site was generated from Microsoft Live Office... Which is a great
tool that is easy to understand and anyone with little expertise can
slap a site toghether.

Let me work backwards with what I didn't find.

I found very little specific information

- Who are the life coaches
- Where have they worked before
- What are their acedemic backgrounds
- What is life coaching in detail?
- What has the company been doing for the last 6 years in business?
- How was it founded?
- Do they actually have offices?
- Where are they incorporate - I find nothing at:
- They have been around for 6 years, but I find nothing at all on the
web about them- all major search engine return no results.


What I did find:

- A web site generated out of microsoft office.
- A P.O. Box for a mailing address.
- A free email account for a contact.
- A web site registered only for one year
- A home page with the word "Default" in the title
- Pricing with the words "Fifty dollars"  - It just looks
un-professional to spell it out.
- "1(888) 900-CHER Coaching Helps Eradicate Restlessness" - This is
beyond forced.... Is that really the company slogan?
- The adverb and adjective use on the site is crazy.  "Stable
company", "Definitly call"
- You capitalize Coach but not counselor? "Coaches, and counselors"
- "It is just now becoming more and more useful as the world wide web
gives us all access to information around the world. "  - let see -
more and more? not great word choice.... And why do you say the web? 
Your coaching is via phone and email.  As far as I can tell it has
NOTHING to do with the web?
- "you can now choose the VERY BEST coach or counselor for you, the
one you feel you have the best support and connection with,  and have
contact with them via the telephone and email. "  - Umm you don't
mention ANYTHING about choosing your coach nor anything about who the
coaches are.
- "Your PRIVACY is totally protected since you can't possibly be
"seen" going to or from a counselor's office. "  Your selling coaching
but telling people they should be embarresed if they are seen going to
a coach?

You have over 25 years combined experience and have been in business
for over 6 years.. Assuming that there are 4 life coaches - does this
mean that this is the only company any of you have ever worked at in
this field?  The math just doesn't work.

"That is why after a certain period of time you will have reached your goals."
Umm my goal is to be a millonaire, have a mansion beautiful wife two
kids(one boy, one girl) Its good to know that if I use your service I
will definitly reach my goals...

Needless to say this web site looks like something a suburban
housewife cooked up to earn a little cash.  I assume that this was a
spam to try to generate business

You might want to take a look at what other life coaches are doing to
promote their business.
