WHY I HATE BEING A BUSINESS COACH AND CONSULTANT
I know you have a profound purpose in the work you offer the world.
The biggest challenge I see with purpose-driven entrepreneurs is that the grounded purpose rarely meets the desired profits.
And when you reach a time of great profit, you’re left wondering what to do next.
HEART STABBING PAIN
It can be disheartening to know how to serve your clients so powerfully while being in the dark about how to build a business with impact and the income you desire.
Most changemakers I know went through a living hell and you’re here to share your hard-fought lessons with your clients.
So, now you’re called to build a business on top of the lessons you’ve endured.
Do you ever feel like you were given a tall order?
I do and I get it!
I started my professional career as a business consultant when I was in my early twenties.
Early in my career, my purpose was to provide for my young family and that was a powerful calling at the time.
I had a great career working for some of the best technology companies in the world and worked on some very high profile projects.
As an entrepreneur, I experienced some freedom but was still bought into the work-hard-play-hard mentality.
I had a pretty wife, three kids, and a dog, I told myself I had a great life.
Do you know what it’s like to have all the things you thought would make you happy?
Then realize it’s all bullshit!
GUN TO MY HEAD
I found my purpose when I had an awakening several years ago.
I was sitting with a gun to my head in the most ruthless breaking-point of my life.
There were two options: “yes” or “no.”
The choice I was about to make would change everything, forever.
In that darkest moment – finger on the trigger – a spark of clarity hit me like I’d never experienced before.
I was in the worst pain I had ever known…
I’d been up for days getting high and just discovered that my wife of twenty years had an affair.
The agony was so bad I wanted to end my life.
It was as if every nerve of my being was being ripped from my body.
A fierce moment of reckoning like never before.
Have you ever been pushed to a breaking point and so painful that you thought you wouldn’t survive it?
That’s exactly where I was, too.
I realize that I had to go to that extreme place to completely change my life…
To become the man I’ve always wanted to be.
In that darkest moment, everything became crystal-clear.
A resounding “YES!” to create a completely new life in front of me surged from within, and I chose to follow it with everything I had.
Do you know what it’s like to be called to expand and to be willing to give up everything you’ve got?
I’ve been relentlessly answering to that call ever since.
It’s crazy to look back on that day in hell and see that, in many ways, it was the best day of my life.
Without that moment, I wouldn’t have learned how to transmute despair, desperation, and hopelessness into what I would now call my dream life.
Have you ever had one of those life-changing moments?
My life today is something I had no idea was possible back then.
I’m still completely in awe of the power we all have… the potential to transform your life over and over again (to crawl out of hell) and create what you truly want.
Here are a few of the transformations that occurred for me the moment I chose to follow that “YES!” to life:
- Became the healthiest person I know
- Lost 50 lbs of fat
- Healed my liver disease
- Left my 20-year toxic marriage
- Became an amazing dad
- Grew a deep connection with my sons
- Left my corporate career
- Started my first purpose-driven business
- Live a life of service every day
- Learned to love myself first so that I could love others more fully (and receive love more fully)
- Use my business and technology consulting expertise to guide entrepreneurs in creating purpose-driven businesses
- Live through divine inspiration
- Create a life filled with my deepest heart’s desires
- My doctor told me I had the best blood work they have ever seen after I healed my liver disease
- A purpose-based business that generates six-figures while working very little and living abroad
- My business is an expression of my heart
- Everything I do is an expression of my purpose guided by my heart
- Get paid to be me and the love which I am
- Work with inspiring people all over the world while helping to make their purpose more powerful
There was no single-area of my life that I didn’t learn to master.
Can you think of an area of your life that needs to be up-leveled?
For me, there are many more areas to up-level and I’m always looking for the ways I’m playing small and giving up my power.
I started my first coaching business called Recovery Squared.
It was started at the worst possible time, I was in the middle of a two-year divorce and just learning to be a single dad.
But waiting just wasn’t an option anymore.
There were times that I had to decide on whether to pay my attorney or my business coach.
I continued to put my calling first, I had to get out of that fucking hole and stop treading water.
So, I had to risk it.
All the attorney fees, court costs, spousal support and fucking bills, bills and the bills that never stopped, piled up, so I had to shift my priorities.
Have you ever jumped from the edge of fear into entrepreneurship and made it a priority in your life?
I put my business first, so I could stop treading water.
ALL PURPOSE & NO PROFIT
When I first started I learned so much about content creation and how to guide individuals through a life-changing breakthrough.
The biggest problem was that my results sucked!
After slugging away with a blog, a podcast, YouTube, Facebook and a bunch of other shit I shared, I still struggled.
It was a problem because I wasn’t creating the income that I became accustomed to in my consulting career.
Have you ever been lost in the endless cycle of creating content that wasn’t creating cash?
That’s a problem!
I had a profound resistance to “business” or “entrepreneurship” in general since walking away from the corporate world.
What I later learned is that I had to completely redefine what business and entrepreneurship meant to me and my calling.
For the most part, my conditioning defined business and entrepreneurship as something externally motivated.
Today my business is an expression of my heart and I’m here to help purpose-driven entrepreneurs build their businesses for a greater impact in the world.
POWERFUL PURPOSE & PRODUCTIVE PROFIT
The reason I hate saying “I’m a coach.” Or, that, “I’m a consultant.” is because so many clients come to me because they need to make money or want strategies.
So it appears that I help entrepreneurs get clients and make money.
If this is all you want there any many other douchebag coaches and consultants that can help you do this, and I’m not your guy.
I can help you do this, sure.
Instead, I’ll give you what you need and what you can’t see. I won’t give what you want.
So, here’s the thing, if you really want your business to expand, you’ll need to wake the fuck up!
I’m not talking about your latest mindset-shit-shift, I’m talking about fucking exploding everything you thought possible.
In due course, I’ll be your worst enemy, and I will go to war with the parts that hold you back.
As we work through the shadows that are strangling your expansion, you’ll start to align with all you desire and will create the clarity to implement the right strategies.
For those that trust the process, every aspect of your life will change!
Here are a few testimonials from clients who receive a clear return on investment from working one-on-one with me.
And, they also had life-changing experiences by doing this work.
