Short Bio

Steve Errey is a confidence coach with hundreds of clients under his belt from all around the world, articles in magazines on both sides of the Atlantic and regular expert slots on television and radio. Before all that, he was a Project Manager in e-Business, travelling the world helping organisations with all things e-Business (yawn, stretch). He has been through redundancy (when the Internet bubble burst), depression and a debt management plan. Steve is also writing his first novel.

Long Bio

Steve Errey is the author of the Truly Confident Living Home Study Course, writes confidence advice and works one on one with a new breed of professional women. He sees that true self-confidence is a much neglected subject and a growing problem among young professionals – the emphasis on delivery and performance in today’s organisations has leaked into our personal lives, and it’s missing the point entirely.

Steve has a reputation for talking sense, and some of his advice and strategies fly in the face of accepted ‘norms’ and traditional coaching methods, like shaking in your boots doesn’t mean you lack confidence, if you fake it ‘til you it make you’ll only ever become a big faker and setting goals for yourself doesn’t work.

He’s featured widely in the media, from magazines such as Men’s Fitness and Cosmopolitan, to appearances on TV Shows on the BBC and Channel 4, to regular expert slots on the radio where he takes calls and has been known to engage in some healthy banter.

Errey began coaching in 2001 following redundancy from his high-flying e-Business career and a subsequent period of taking a cocktail of anti-depressants to battle depression. Putting his self-confidence together piece by piece, Steve’s has test-driven much of what he now writes about and offers in his one to one work. For the last 4 years he’s also been writing a fortnightly ezine that’s read by thousands of people right around the world.

As a confidence coach, Steve recognises that he’s allowed to be silly and laugh until he cries as well as being a grown-up. After all, if he doesn’t let himself be himself, then he’s hardly in the best position to advise others on how to confidently be themselves, right…?

Errey is committed to taking people to a place where they’re truly confident and have the tools they need to live a truly confident life. He believes that it’s this that makes the difference between a life full of struggle and frustration, and a life that just feels a heck of a lot more ‘you’.

Time waits for no man, and the winner of the Extraordinary Bundle of Beautiful Things will be picked at random on Monday 19th March, to coincide with the launch of the Code of Extraordinary Change.

If you’ve already pre-registered then you’re all set; I hope you win (I’d love to win, but sadly have ruled myself ineligible!).  Otherwise, you’ve got a little bit of time left to get involved and enter the give-away. You could win:

  • a handmade leather Moleskine cover, engraved with “Sing in Me Muse”, the gorgeous and unique artwork from the design team at Tinder + Sparks.
  • a signed copy of Karen Walrond‘s beautiful book, “The Beauty of Different”.
  • Ingrid Michaelson’s new CD – “Human Again”, signed by Ingrid herself.
  • A signed copy of the butt-kicking and simply awesome “Do The Work” from the brilliant Steven Pressfield.
  • “You Are Lovely” – a signed print from the talented illustrator Jen Renninger.
  • The soulful “Fortunes”, from the extraordinary Jen Lee.
  • A signed copy of the heart-warming, funny and gorgeous book “Some Kind of Ride” by Brian Andreas.
  • Your very own tin of Omnipotence (yes, really), from my good friends at the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company.
  • 2 signed CD’s (“Being Brave” and “As I Am”) from the hugely talented Karen Jacobsen.
  • Your very own “Go Dent the Universe” t-shirt. Very cool.

Each of these things is just gorgeous, so it’s quite the collection.  And of course, pre-registering also makes sure you have access to all of the members-only content (including free monthly calls where I’ll help you put your dent in the universe and video interviews with some amazing people who’ve created extraordinary things).

I’m dead excited and more than a little nervous I am about all of this – I’ve worked my cotton socks off to make sure the Code of Extraordinary Change blows your socks off.  (There’s been a lot of sock action, for sure).
Pre-register
So head over to the The Code of Extraordinary and get involved; the world needs your kind of extraordinary.

The Code of Extraordinary Change
I made a fundamental mistake here at The Confidence Guy.  I was focused on helping people build up their self-confidence, but I’d never answered the basic question “Why?” Why spend all that time and effort on getting somewhere, when you have no clue as to what to do when you get there?

I stopped what I was doing, took a big step back and started answering the question.  I realised one important thing – that confidence alone is like a single child in an empty room at their 8th Birthday party.  No fun at all.  And I came to see that there’s only one reason to have a core of self-confidence.

To put a you-shaped dent in the universe.

So I’ve built something that does 2 things:

  1. Creates a tipping point where you feel ready, willing and moved to get out there and do what matters to you.
  2. Guides you through that tipping point (and beyond) so you can put a meaningful dent in the universe.

I call it The Code Of Extraordinary Change.

Picture it.

You’re at a point where you’re unburdened of the things that hold you back.
You’re equipped with everything that makes you a force of nature.
You know you can deal with whatever life throws at you.
You understand what really matters to you and recognise what doesn’t.
You trust yourself completely to make awesome decisions.

I think that’s pretty damn extraordinary, and that’s what the Code of Extraordinary Change does.

It’s launching on March 19th, and I would be totally thrilled to have you come over and visit : )

With the launch of The Code of Extraordinary Change coming up fast, I want to give you something. When you pre-register on the site you’ll not only gain access to the members-only content at launch time, but you can win an Extraordinary Bundle of Beautiful Things.

This bundle includes a handmade leather Moleskine cover engraved with totally unique and gorgeous artwork, a signed copy of Karen Walrond’s beautiful book “The Beauty of Different”, a signed copy of Ingrid Michaelson’s new CD “Human Again”, your very own “Go Dent the Universe” t-shirt and a whole heap more (you can see everything in the Bundle over at the COEC).

The Code of Extraordinary Change is all about making a meaningful difference, and both the members-only content and the Extraordinary Bundle represent that spirit.

Get the new PlaybookI mentioned in my last post that I was putting the finishing touches to something that completes the Code of Extraordinary Change, and I’m over the moon to tell you that it’s done and ready.

So I’d like to introduce you to the Code of Extraordinary Change Playbook.

Its 136 pages, 8 chapters and 30 worksheets are aimed at unburdening you of the things that weigh you down and hold you back and equipping you with the things that move you, drive you and make you a force of nature.  It’s all here in the Playbook.

I may be a little biased here, but I reckon this is pretty flippin’ brilliant.  I’m honestly thrilled with what’s in the Playbook and I know it can make a big difference if you let it.

Here’s how to use your 50% discount:

  1. Go to the Playbook page by clicking here or on the book cover.

Extraordin

Extraordin-Errey - geddit?!

After over 12 months of planning, writing, wrangling, sweating and decision-making, The Code of Extraordinary Change is open.

I hope you like it : )

I gotta say that I’m a lot more nervous than I expected to be, but they’re good “This is gonna be great” nerves, you know?!  The COEC isn’t something that I built for me; it’s not a vanity project, something for my ego to wallow in or even something that’s “finished”.  I built it because I want you to put your dent in the universe and because I want to offer a helping hand when you need it.  And, a little like Goldilocks, that means that I want it to be “just right”.

So whether or not you know what kind of dent you want to make; whether or not you’re on the road to doing what matters to you, or whether or not you feel like you could ever put your dent in the universe – there’s something over at The Code of Extraordinary Change for you.  And there always will be.

Something I didn’t have time for…

Since I started The Confidence Guy I’ve had a lot of feedback from people that’s been worth its weight in gold.  So a huge thank you to everyone here who’s commented or emailed – I’ve listened to and appreciated every single word.  Mix that up with feedback from people I’ve worked with and everything else I’ve learned since I started coaching, and that’s a lot of seriously good stuff.

The result of all that is something I’ve been working on for 18 months; and this final piece of the The Code of Extraordinary Change is going through the finessing machine as we speak to make sure it comes out extra-shiny and extra-special.  I’ll let you know more about it very soon.

In the meantime, I’d love you to head over to the COEC to see what’s going on over there.

The world needs your kind of extraordinary.
