In 2004, Marsha Crownover discovered the world of life and executive coaching and the immerse value a coach can provide to someone as they process the challenges of personal and professional life. Coming from her own professional background in counseling, she knew that days could be grueling and executive coaching and the immerse value a coach can provide to someone as they process the challenges of personal and professional life. She observed that individuals in helping professions may be the ones who could benefit the most from having a coach. However, Martha saw a gap and noticed that coaching was not always accessible to those within the nonprofit sector. Coaching is expensive and something not everyone has the luxury of pursing. Coach Approach, Inc. was founded with the mission to fill this gap and provide affordable life and executive coaching to those in nonprofit helping professions.

"The Day 7 stipend has been huge for my family. As a 4 person family with only a teacher and non-profit salary, our budget is tight. With the stipend covering my monthly gym membership, my family's monthly expenses have gone down without my physical fitness suffering and without having any personal guilt about having a membership at all. Physical fitness is the main way that I manage stress as well as an hour that I allow myself to mentally take a break from anything else going on, so it keeps me both physically and mentally healthier."

"Day 7 has transformed how I as a leader am able to care for my staff. Nonprofits are notorious for burnout, lack of boundaries and high turnover. I have always vowed not to let this happen to me or my team and Day 7's strategic method of encouraging our staff to take care of themselves has helped us not only provide options but more had helped us create a culture of self care."
