I grew up as the "class clown" and a competitive athlete in the suburbs of Chicago. When it came time for college, I didn't know what career I wanted to pursue. Result...I explored three majors over eight years, built a pile of debt and still didn't know what career would fulfill me.
Three years later, I was bored and burning out as a life insurance agent. I was performing well, but I wasn't happy, and I was working 50-hours a week.
At that point, I decided that somehow I would soon know the type of work I'd wake up excited to do every day.
One week later, I received a coaching session. At the end of the session, I looked the coach in the eye and said, “What you just did with me, I’m going to do with others for the rest of my life.” I found my life purpose, started my coaching business and never looked back.
After discovering my passion to help people become fulfilled and free, I became obsessed with personal transformation and business development. And, I started changing the areas of my life that I felt called to help others change.
I started doing what I love for a living and created my ideal business.
I moved to Boulder, CO, which I had dreamed about doing since I was young. I immersed myself in the magic of the Rocky Mountains and meaningful connections with inspiring, like-minded people.
I attracted an aligned and wildly-rewarding romantic relationship. We coach each other daily. Our ability to grow and work through challenges is a thing of beauty. So is she.
I stopped working so damn much and created a flexible, fun and healthy lifestyle. I spend plenty of time enjoying satisfying relationships, nature, music, dance and travel.
Since 2006, I have been helping people create a more passionate career/business, more fulfilling relationships and a more enjoyable lifestyle. How might I help you?
