Do you have some quick thoughts on when you expect your coaching to be more valuable to EAs than your average productivity coaching? E.g. What factors are relevant when deciding between paying for coaching with you, and doing a Google search and picking a productivity coach with similar/better prices/experience/reviews?

(Although r.e. prices, given that you've received an EA Grant for this work, we should be careful not to double-count.)

Hey, sorry for the late replies. Didn't realize there weren't notifications for comments.

Good question. You could get a lot of the benefit of working with me from another good productivity coach. I think there is some benefit of working with someone within the EA community, which has somewhat different goals and norms than the general population. I expect my coaching may be particularly more helpful when you're trying to make life decisions. Given my personal goals and the EA grant, my coaching is also more accessible, compared to that of other coaches, for members of the EA community/people contributing toward impactful causes.
