Why Ask Coach Mac?

Early in my career I had a hard time getting an opportunity to get my questions answered. It was in that frustration I vowed to make sure that I would make every attempt to answer calls, letters, and emails I would get when I “made it”. Before the idea for Ask Coach Mac, I would spend hours answering questions. Many times answering the same questions over and over again. Between my family and coaching it has simply gotten to be to much to keep up with.

Rather than go back on my word I have decided to dedicate an entire show to answering your questions instead!

Each show is in a bite-sized 5-8 minute format, and it’s an awesome, more organized way to deliver even more value to you and the entire community. Plus, you can rely on having something new in your ears every week, and the bite-sized format makes it easy to catch up if you fall behind.

Submitting a Question

I want this show to be fun, personal, and helpful! So let’s keep it real and sensible, okay? Please use common sense and show courtesy with your questions. That way everyone wins! Here are some guidelines to ensure your question is qualified to be featured on the show.

  1. Please keep your question under one minute in length. If it goes a little over, that’s fine, but please keep it concise and to the point.
  2. If you have a website and URL, you’re allowed to share it only once during the recording. For example: “Hi, my name is John Doe. I have a blog called John’s Garage Gym at My question is…”
  3. Spammy, disrespectful, or deeply private questions will not be considered for the podcast.

I use, a fantastic web service that allows anyone to leave me a voicemail message through the Internet. It’s like magic, I swear All you need is an Internet connection and a microphone.

**SpeakPipe does not work with Google Chrome.  If you do not have access to a different browser, submit your questions via email by sending to  Simply record your question on your phone and email it.**

Please note that by submitting a voicemail question, you’re allowing me to share it publicly on the podcast. Click here for more details on the Terms of Use.

Also note that it’s impossible for me to get to everyone’s question—you may not receive a direct response to your question. I will answer qualified questions as they come, but if your question has already been asked by someone else, I will have to move on to the next. Keep listening to the show–most questions get answered at some point. Given the volume of questions that I receive, I won’t be able to email you back with a response.

Also, if your request is time-sensitive, then email me directly. It can take us a week or longer to listen to new questions. Thanks for understanding, and thanks for listening!
