  9. Really hard to believe this is of any help to a real Coach.

    Nobody has a calendar/appointments plugin???

    Coaching is not Blogging. Coaching is actually talking with individuals! And you cannot do that without an appointment plugin.

    Lead generation, opt-in, email marketing, even content plugins. But no plugin that actually helps you COACH an individual or team!

    Sorry, but this is about Blogging, not coaching.
