How does Soar work?
Soar sets the stage for meaningful coach-client interactions. Our personalized matchmaking framework connects individuals and teams with their ideal coach, and coaches with their ideal clients. In the coach-client discovery phase, both parties benefit from an ideal safe and convenient environment, where they can freely discuss expectations, goals, planning, pricing, etc. Coaches set their own fees and can compare peer pricing, ratings, expertise, and much more. Clients can rate the service they received and leave reviews about their coach on their profile page.
