[1] If you are a coach, consultant, therapist, bodyworker, or other self-employed person who uses intake forms, you have a powerful resource at your disposal with which to answer these questions. I invite you to identify your favorite clients, read their intake forms, and make notes about the language they use to discuss their challenges and desired solutions.
