you're the one who discounted him as a good coach. you don't need to hire somebody in person. i mentioned the $300 because people usually quote money as a reason why not to hire someone - the fact that you can afford it but refuse for some reason doesn't make any sense to me. why are you so resistant to hiring someone? with all of the issues you have gone through, and considering how serious you take all of this and the fact that you're financially able, why on earth would you continue to do what you're doing?
