Sarah Walls, owner and president of SAPT, wrote a pretty fantastic article over on elitefts.com about being a strength and conditioning coach who, in her words, "happens to be a female." I (Kelsey) have railed against the "special" stuff that is marketed to women (not on this blog too much, but spend some time with me, I assure you it will come up...) and I very much appreciated Sarah's article is applicable for both females and males. Anyway, that's a rant for another day.
Sarah writes both about her experiences in the field as well as offers advice to up-and-coming coaches. I would argue that her advice could apply across most industries. I highly recommend you read it! Check it out HERE.
